Kate Plus 8 News
Well, what do you think, Yidio faithful: is Kate Gosselin's admission that she's "lonely" these days, as she recently told Dr. Drew Pinsky on "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers," a game-changer for her image? She told Dr. Drew recently that raising eight children by herself leaves her precious little time to find a partner that can handle being a father-figure on that level.
Despite losing her show and going through the "Dancing with the Stars" gauntlet, "Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin has landed herself a nice, cushy new job that she'll be able to do from home, surrounded by her way-too-many children - she'll be a columnist for CouponCabin.com.
The ink on the "Kate Plus 8" death certificate has barely dried, but Jon Gosselin didn't waste a moment deciding to Dougie on the one-time TLC juggernaut's grave. "I hope they can have more private family moments. I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future," Jon commented.
When TLC released their fall schedule and "Kate Plus 8" wasn't on it, we suspected the show was about to be cancelled. Now it's official. A TLC representative released a statement to People acknowledging the cancellation, though also suggesting it might not be the last we see of Kate Gosellin on the network.
TLC recently announced its Fall 2011 line-up. "Sister Wives"? Check. "Extreme Couponing?" Check. "Toddlers & Tiaras"? Ugh. Creepy check. "Cake Boss"? "Little People, Big World"? "Say Yes To The Dress"? Check, check and check. "Kate Plus 8"? Ahem . . . "Kate Plus 8"? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
