After insisting that a life away from the public eye would be better for her kids, Kate Gosselin has decided that, perhaps, reality television isn’t so bad after all. The oft-criticized celebrity and her huge brood recently returned for a TLC special, which, apparently, was a smashing success — the network plans to air several new episodes of Kate Plus 8 in December!
During a recent trip to Massachusetts, Kate Gosselin and her kids appeared to be filming scenes for Kate Plus 8. Also present was Kate’s former bodyguard, Steve Neild, who, according to Facebook rumors, has only resumed his position in hopes of continuing a romantic fling with the reality star. No matter the status of her love life, it’s clear that Kate is succeeding in a professional sense — not only did her recent TLC special prove a huge hit, reports of new Kate Plus 8 episodes have been confirmed.
According to TLC, the new episodes of Kate Plus 8 will focus on the Gosselin family’s recent vacation, as well as their preparations for yet another school year. As with the recently aired special, Kate will try to show fans a more vulnerable side. She’s already admitted that it was “never my intent to portray myself as superwoman,” adding that, “behind closed doors, I struggle.”
Twitter followers are eager for the return of Kate Plus 8. They are, if possible, even more excited to witness Jon Gosselin’s response to his kids’ return to reality television. Based on his recent battles with Kate, the famous dad is probably not happy about this development.
Are you planning on tuning in for new episodes of Kate Plus 8 this December? Sound off in the comments section below!
