Will you watch — or, to be frank, give a hoot about — Kate G if she’s on reality TV without Jon G or her eight kids?

Kate Gosselin‘s return to reality TV has finally been unveiled, but Jon and the kids will be conspicuously absent.

Today, TLC is announcing, according to USA Today, that Kate’s new show will be called Twist of Kate. The concept is that Kate will use “fan letters inspired by her story as the basis for profiles of women facing their own challenges.”

(This may explain why Kate was spotted waiting tables in North Carolina with a camera crew late last year.)

Looks like Kate, over the course of the show’s 12 episodes, will be trying to understand women’s concerns. “She will be in that person’s shoes. And more often than not, it’s not going to be terribly comfortable for her,” says TLC head Eileen O’Neill tells USA Today. “She’s game for things, but she also has limits and boundaries.”

There will also be a series of specials called Kate Plus 8 which will, according to the network, “revisit” her family life, though no more details about those shows has yet been released.

Meanwhile, in the “real” life of the Gosselins, Jon just filed a suit yesterday asking for a Pennsylvania court to reverse his and Kate’s current custody arrangement, wherein Kate has primary physical custody and Jon is required to pay her $21,000 in child support per month.

I think that Jon has remained true to who he is. Whether it is what we like or not. There is merit to this. Kate however, is continuing UNDER the GUISE of her 8 kids, that her absence is for the kids. Are the hair extentions needed? Are the tanning sessions needed? I dont say that she should be a schlump but before when she was a ”mom” she looked like the rest of us do everyday. Tradition has it that the father leaves the kids and home after a divorce. IF Kate has left, wouldnt this play out just a WHOLE LOT DIFFERENT?
They need to just get out of the spotlight that Kate craves, and go back to basics. Be parents to these kids they tried so hard to have!!

Sorry for Jon. He is so bitter that he even
wants to break up the kids home again and to
take more of their money that the mother would
support them with. I don’t believe he will ever
let up on Kate or the children because of their
success in making it without him and all due
to KATE’S hard work. Keep on keeping on, Kate.
Even God honors honest work. Going to enjoy you
r new show and your book.

No way should she have her own show! She has exploited those poor kids and her sorry excuse for a life long enough. She runs around thinking she is a big time celebrity when know when cares about her. The only reason Jon & Kate Plus 8 was tolerable is because of those kids. If I was Jon I would have divorced her long ago.

louise, aren’t you forgetting that someone
has to feed , clothe and educate the children and provide
and provide shelter, insurance, medicsl and
dental care when needed? Certainly JON HASN’T
AND not only that he borrowed 200,000 from
Glassman to pay back that same amount he stole
from the household account, leaving kATE and
her children with 1,000.00 to live on for month
s.He has been living off of various women even
for his food and everyone has thrown him out.
Kate must support her family. You see, if she
doesn’t, it is going to be welfare living. Do
you know of moms who take their children to wor

with them….all eight
