Kate Gosselin Offers Insight Into Post-Reality Life

August 15, 2013 06:27 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Kate Gosselin has been out of the reality fray for quite awhile now. And although she remains a familiar face, the Dancing With The Stars alum former Kate Plus 8 star is now enjoying a life that, for the most part, is out of the public eye.

Life in the Gosselin household has changed quite a bit since the reign of Jon and Kate Plus 8 (and its eventual successor, Kate Plus 8). The kids are enjoying a day-to-day life that is as close to normal as is possible for a set of sextuplets. The kids certainly miss some elements of reality television, such as the frequent vacations, as the now nine-year-old Alexis reveals. But they’ve largely adjusted to a routine that includes school, extracurricular activities and plenty of time goofing off with the family.

Kate also seems to be settling into post-reality life quite nicely. She says that she is a completely different person now — and that viewers would probably not recognize the new Kate. And this is not just in reference to the makeover, although that is notable enough on its own. Kate says that she is much more relaxed and at ease when she doesn’t constantly have a camera in her face. “I feel like I’ve lived two lifetimes already. I’m not the same person I was … I don’t even recognize her.”

Although the transition from fame to regular life has been difficult, Kate says that her kids’ resiliency has helped her through. “My kids, they’ve generally accepted that things are going to be okay…They’ve seen that through it all, we’ve dealt with it, survived it, and we keep on going.”

We’re glad that the Gosselin family is doing well, but we still have a hard time believing that Kate wouldn’t immediately return all those cameras to her household, should she be given the opportunity. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section below!

    Maybe Kate has benefitted from seeing both sides of the coin,and has come to a realization that Life is a real thing…I give her a lot of credit for how she’s handling it….There are still the kids,and that’s what’s important…Maybe Kate has become her own person again,and we should honor that

    It’s a good thing the kids still have their father active in their lives to stop the filming and to ensure some normalcy.
