Kate’s best friend decides to surprise her with a last minute trip to NYC for a pampering spa day and night on the town without the kids!
Kate Gosselin really lets herself go on the June 6 episode of Kate Plus 8. The reality mom and her bestie Jamie go to NYC for a night on the town and trust me, you’ve never seen Kate have such a good time.
When the girls arrive in the Big Apple they immediately go to their hotel room at the swanky Essex House and pass out. But the next day they wake up and are the envy of every girl! They go to the famous Ted Gibson salon and each get their hair colored, cut and styled. Trust us when we say, the man who colors her hair Jason Backe is amazing — jealous!
But no night is complete without a little black dress! Kate luckily brings a super short skin-tight dress and 3 inch heels for her big birthday night. The girls get their makeup professionally done and then head to a pricey dinner at STK in NYC’s Meatpacking District.
We actually get to see Kate get a little tipsy — but it still takes her a while to loosen up. It’s when they leave STK that you catch a glimpse of Kate’s bodyguard Steve Neild, her rumored beau. But he doesn’t have much camera time on this episode.
The besties head to 230 Fifth, a large rooftop bar and immediately they are flocked by men. But Kate won’t give anyone the time of day unless they are over 40-years-old. Thankfully, two men who look to be about 50 start talking to Kate and Jamie.
The man who catches Kate’s attention convinces her to hit the dance floor — yay! They sit in a lounge and get to talking … uh oh. After the man tells Kate why he divorced his wife, Kate tells her sob story about Jon. Kate gets a little emotional and says that the man she married was “abducted by aliens” and that his body is the same, but the person inside is different.
It’s the same thing we’ve always heard Kate say, but it was surprising to hear her get into such a deep conversation about it with a stranger.
This definitely made us think that she misses the old Jon. Maybe this is why she always bashes him on TV — she secretly is heartbroken and misses him! Stranger things have happened.
The girls wake up the next day with a huge hangover but manage to get in some much needed retail therapy.
When they get home Kate is surprised by her eight little ones because they decorated the house and made two birthday cakes for her!
Kate ends the episode by saying “it was the best night of my life.” We’re so happy Kate had a good time — she should go out more often!
