You’ve seen them grow up, and now the Gosselin kids are taking on New York City on an all new episode of Kate Plus 8 on TLC! Keep reading to see how Kate Gosselin manages take the Big Apple by storm on her own!
As they arrive in New York, the kids are amazed by all of the tall buildings, and the sounds and lights! But of course, taking eight kids to New York CityÂ is not an easy task. On the first day of their trip, they get on one of those Double Decker buses to take a tour around the city, and the guide asks where the kids are from. He must not own a television or never picked up a tabloid before. As the bus goes around the city, half of the Gosselin kids sleep on the bus, until Kate wakes them up and asks them if they want dessert. I don’t know if they do this for everyday people, but they actually keep the kids on the bus with Kate’s friend and helper while she goes to a store and gets the kids ice cream. Of course there are a bunch of tourists taking her picture as she is dripping her ice cream all over the place and back to the bus. Wonder how many people got pictures of Kate Gosselin booking up the streets of New York City with ice cream cones in her hand?
The next day on Kate Plus 8 on TLC, Kate and the kids venture into Chinatown, the kids are familiar with alot of the things their from their father’s side of their family. As the kids pick out a souvenir, Kate figures, okay, time for something to eat, so why not take the kids to a Chinese restaurant. She thought the name of the restaurant was Dim Sum. Boy was she wrong! As the servers come out and they start bringing her all of these trays of food, it is hysterical to see the look on her face as she tries to figure out what the hell she is eating. Something I did find to be weird was that for the Gosselin kids first trip to New York, Kate really didn’t seem to be taking lots of pictures.
After lunch, she takes the kids into Central Park to the amusement park, but it is like 90 degrees out and who can have any fun in that weather? But they did it anyway and they played a game and you would think that Kate would have let the kids win, but she kept winning instead! To top it all off I noticed she was wearing heels the whole time! As the final day of their trip arrived, it was finally time for what theÂ Gosselin kids wanted to see most, the Statue Of Liberty. The kids were screaming on the ride there, taking lots of pictures, and then finally so does Kate. They took a great shot of the family in front of the New York City skyline. As they are walking to get on the ferry, again Kate is wearing like six inch heels! The captain of the ferry let her even drive for a little while. When they arrived on Ellis Island, they take a few pictures but they were being followed by people taking pictures of her and the kids. Kate was a little disappointed because they weren’t letting people go up into the Statue Of Liberty. They go to the gift shop to get a souvenir, and I don’t know what she was thinking. Not only was it crowded with people who obviously recognized her and were crowding her taking pictures, but she was also trying to control eight kids who tried to touch everything. Although she is happy and nice to the fans, these people were making it a little difficult for the family to even move around. But luckily, the kids got to see the statue, and that’s all they really wanted!!
