The eight little Gosselins cut out paper hearts and made Valentine’s Day cards — while their mom did TV in LA!

Kate Gosselin knows how to make sacrifices for her fame, even if it means ditching her kids on Valentine’s Day. The reality mom-of-eight flew to LA to appear Feb. 15 on the CBS show The Talk. But our insider tells us she didn’t leave the kids with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin who lives right around the corner in Reading, Pa. She left them with the babysitter!

“Kate’s in LA right now,” our source says. “Jon saw the kids over the weekend but you would think she’d want the kids to stay with him since he’s their parent and in town. Jon works during the day with his new job but you would think she’d want them with him. So instead Jon and his girlfriend Ellen Ross had a quiet romantic dinner together.”

The Talk says it’s all about “discussing the issues that matter to them most, both in the headlines and at home.”

We wonder if Kate will mention the headlines she’s making!
