Kate Gosselin Rejects Jon Gosselin Advice to Get a Normal Life

Despite advice from ex-husband Jon Gosselin to get “back to a normal life,” Kate Gosselin says the cancellation of her reality show, Kate Plus 8, won’t keep her off TV. In an interview with Matt Laeur on Today, Kate Gosselin said she plans on “continuing in TV as a way to provide for my kids.”

When Kate Gosselin learned that TLC had cancelled Kate Plus 8, she told People that she was “freaking out” about how she would support her eight kids. Ex-husband Jon Gosselin, speaking to RumorFix.com, suggested she focus on getting “back to a normal life — a simple life,” expressing his opinion that “reality TV is not a career.”

Kate Gosselin totally dismissed her ex-husband’s advice. “Jon may be acceptive of mediocre for his kids,” she told Matt Laeur. “I want the best for my kids.” So, well, apparently if you are not having cameras following around your children and surrounding them with nannies and ‘handlers’ while you jet off for publicity appearances, you are giving your children only a “mediocre” life.

According to Kate Gosselin, her fans are simply “devastated” that they won’t get to watch her whine about how difficult everything in the universe is while flipping around her chemically abused blond hair and yelling at her eight kids and endless assistant/nannies/children wranglers.

Kate Gosselin hinted big time that she would be quite willing to sign on to another reality TV show. “If the right thing came along, I think we all are still in agreeance with it. I’m sure you will see my kids again at some point,” she said.

Meanwhile, poor Kate is beside herself about how she’ll keep up the lavish lifestyle and crazed traveling to which she has become accustomed. “There’s also fear because this has been, although maybe not my career, has been the start essentially of my career and my job and the way I’ve been providing for my kids for six years. And so, you know, it is a little scary,” she said.

Jon Gosselin Tells Kate Gosselin To Get A Normal Life

Jon Gosselin has some words of advice for ex-wife Kate Gosselin now that her reality TV show Kate Plus 8 has been cancelled. He thinks now would be a really good time for Kate Gosselin to realize that “reality TV is not a career.”

Jon and Kate Gosselin started out on their reality TV journey together, along with their eight kids, on Jon and Kate Plus 8. The stress of life on television, however, proved too much for the couple and they divorced in 2009.

Although Jon Gosselin briefly pursued more Hollywood gigs (and a handful of girlfriends), he has now settled down to a relatively quiet life as a computer support engineer. Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, has continued to try to keep her and her children in the public eye as much as possible. Now that TLC has cancelled Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin told People she’s “freaking out” about how she is going to support her eight kids.

“Things will work out the way they should work out,” Jon Gosselin told RumorFix.com about hearing the news of the cancellation. “Obviously, there are families out there that have several kids – people work normal jobs, and things work out.”

Jon Gosselin, who pays child support on his eight kids and says he sees them “a lot,” thinks his ex-wife should focus on getting “back to a normal life — a simple life.” As for whether or not Kate Gosselin will be able to keep the farmhouse in Pennsylvania where she and the kids live (and Jon and Kate spent their final days as a couple), Jon Gosselin seemed unconcerned. “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house,” he said.”

“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” Kate Gosselin told People. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”

The final episode of Kate Plus 8 airs on September 12 on TLC.

Jon Gosselin Glad Kate Plus 8 Cancelled – Kate Gosselin Scared

Jon Gosselin, ex-husband to Kate Gosselin and father of the Gosselin horde, is glad TLC has cancelled Kate Plus 8, the reality show featuring his ex-wife and children.  Jon Gosselin says he is “very relieved” that his eight kids will no longer be in front of the cameras.

“I hope they can have more private family moments,” Jon Gosselin told RadarOnline.com.  “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.” Gosselin said he learned of the Kate Plus 8 cancellation news from a press release.

Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, is not at all happy about having Kate Plus 8 cancelled. Not long ago, Kate Gosselin had been gushing about how it would be cool to see the show follow her eight children all the way through high school.

On her Twitter feed, Kate Gosselin expressed her concern about supporting her eight kids financially with the show cancelled. “One mom and 8 kids = scary!!!! But I’ll make it happen.. Lotsa prayer and hard work as always.” Gosselin told one follower: “I plan on staying on tv 🙂 but if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!”

“I wish I didn’t have to say it was so, my faithful followers,” Kate Gosselin told her fans of the cancellation on Twitter. “Thx for adventuring with us for SIX years! We love you!”

Jon Gosselin, who shares joint custody with ex-wife Kate Gosselin of the couple’s eight children, told RadarOnline.com he hopes the show being cancelled will lead Kate to ‘dedicate more time to the kids.’ Gosselin is currently living in a Pennsyvania apartment near his ex-wife and children with his girlfriend, Ellen Ross.

Kate Gosselin has expressed that she is ready to start dating again too, but so far doesn’t seem to have any takers…

Kate Gosselin New Show on TLC Makes Us Nauseous

Dancing With the Stars diva Kate Gosselin will be returning to TLC with a new reality show. The new series, Twist of Kate, will begin airing 12 episodes this summer. The whole idea of Kate Gosselin stretching out her long expired 15 minutes of fame yet again puts a nasty twist in our stomach.

Kate Gosselin’s new show will feature the reality TV mom using “fan letters from women inspired by her story as the basis for profiles of women facing their own challenges,” according to USA Today. Why is it that a reality show supposedly about profiling other women somehow makes Kate Gosselin sound even more narcissistic and self-involved? Someone bring us the Tums and Pepto, stat!

Twist of Kate will not focus on Gosselin’s children, but the 8 kids will reportedly return to TV in several Kate Plus 8 specials. So, basically, using the children to raise cash to pay for their own nannies… gotta love that. Ex-husband Jon Gosselin, of course, will mostly likely be notably absent from any kind of filming (or earning) going on.

“I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate Gosselin said of her new reality show. “I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don’t consider myself an expert on anything.”

Let’s just hope no one needs any advice about dancing, because obviously Kate Gosselin is definitely the furthest thing from expert in that area!
