Why Is Kate Gosselin Freaking Out?

September 07, 2011 10:35 AM by Kristin Watson

Kate Gosselin’s TLC show, Kate Plus 8, has been cancelled and it has left Kate wondering what to do about her future. Read on to find out why the mom-turned-reality-star is freaking out…

When TLC cancelled Kate Plus 8, it wasn’t that much of a shock — for us at least. For Kate Gosselin, however, she wasn’t quite ready.

Kate revealed in the new issue of People magazine, “I’m freaking out. Big time.”

She added, “My kids weren’t ready. Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. This has been ended for me on a moment’s notice. I don’t know what’s next.”

It’s not like Kate Gosselin hasn’t ever worked a “normal” job, but what’s a gal to do when her reality days are up? Perhaps going back to what you excelled in before becoming famous would be a good idea.

Kate said, “After the show was canceled, I said, ‘I’ll go back to my old nursing job.’ If nothing comes up, I’ll do it.”

Would a hospital take a famous face like hers and would it pay enough? Kate explained, “But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for eight kids essentially on my own. When you think about it that way, it gets really scary.”

So, how is Kate explaining the cancellation to the kids? “I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,”

She added, “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”

The TV mom left fans with these parting words: “I want to stay in TV because I feel comfortable there, it’s an exciting life. I’d really love to find a place of my own on a talk show or something like that. I’ll be back. This is too much fun not to find a way back.”

Phew, we thought she’d run and hide. What do you think Kate Gosselin should do next?

    It is time to go lead a normal life Kate with your
    kids. You have been on TV long enough, give someone else a chance.You should have enough money after all these years. The truth is America has seen enough of you and the show is not pleasant to watch. I watched two seconds and switched channels.Too much drama which is probably why you were cancelled.

    I have a lot to say regarding this Fake Plus 8!!! Go away, for good. No wonder at first chance Jon could, you couldn’t see him for “dust” ; the only tragedy I see here is regarding those precious children! You are a user of anybody who could possibly put you first. I am a blonde,blue eyed white, female who is married to a God fearing, loving man who happens to be Asian,named John that as head of our household put’s God first,his wife,&our children. Note, I said John is head of household,note I didn’t say “door-mat”. “tootles”
