"Jon and Kate Plus 8" is a piece of tumultuous reality TV history, but TLC's relationship with Kate Gosselin and her brood isn't over yet. The network is ready to unveil the new, single-working-mother side of Kate in her solo spinoff show, “Kate Plus 8.”
Starting in June, Katie G. will be back with not one, but two specials, with the first featuring the family on a surprise trip to Orlando for the sextuplets' sixth birthday. “Highlights include the kids feeding sting rays at Discovery Cove, swimming with the dolphins, feeding exotic birds, riding in an air boat and taking in the sights of the Everglades, [and] partaking in an orange juice squeezing contest,” according to a statement from TLC.
The second special will give a “behind-the-scenes” look at what it’s like to be Kate. Notes the TLC statement, “Inside Kate’s World” is a special that will provide a “unique, never before seen glimpse into the day-to-day routine of the single mother, entrepreneur, best-selling author, dance partner and friend.”
The two hours of Kate plus her 8 kids kicks off June 6 at 9 p.m. on none other than TLC.
