Kate Gosselin's 8 Kids -- Cleared for Spin-Off

4/25/2010 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin's new TLC show "Kate Plus 8" is all systems go -- because the local Department of Labor says the kiddies have been cleared to continue their careers as reality TV stars.

0910-media_removed
A rep for the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor and Industry tells TMZ the correct paperwork for the show was submitted and approved ... and said, "The proper steps have been taken and the kids are permitted for 'Kate Plus 8.'"

But according to the rep, nothing has been submitted for Kate's other TLC spin-off "Twist of Kate" -- which could mean the kiddies may not be joining Kate on that one.

That's probably a good thing ... because 5-year-olds shouldn't have to work two jobs.

This is what these kids need.If you take away the show business these kids will end up like Todd Bridges and The Other Little Brother and they might even commit suicide.The judge knows this and thats why they can never leave this business.Your stuck kids!

Here's hoping everybody is smart enough to boycott this stupid show. Then Kate and family will be unemployed. And perhaps they'll lose all their money, become homeless and die.



This world is overpopulated enough without idiots like Kate Gosselin irresponsibly bringing 8 more mouths to feed. Fire these jerks. Get rid of all of them. And please take that a-hole ex-husband Jon with them.

Isn't it amazing how Lover/Bodyguard is joined at the hip with KHATE when they are alone? Now, where is he when there are 8 more in a friggin' airport where all the crazies are?



Also, KHATE, if the future of MY kids was uncertain THE very last thing you would see me doing is getting mani/pedi/tanning. Good God, woman, quitcherbitchin and ENJOY those beautiful children while A) they are still young and B)while they still sorta like you



KHATE, you should also take a look at this photo if you ever stop long enough to, and notice that just about all the kids' heads are down...........can you say SAD and DEPRESSED?

I'll be watching. Jon was clearly being vindictive when he pulled the plug the first time. For him to suddenly decide after several years the kids were being exploited and filming was bad for them was very transparent. Anyone with a brain could clearly see Jon's change of heart had nothing to do with the kids and everything to do with Kate and TLC.

Make the breeder go away -- her kids look so sad, totally sad - always sad! Completely confused on why anyone cares, again, about the breeder - TWO shows, please! Talk about carbon footprint.

I just do NOT understand HOW she can still pull viewership??? She was axed off DWTS (yeah I get it, SHE CANNOT DANCE) bit isn't DWTS a popularity contest anyways??? So if ppl loved Kate, wouldn't she still be on???



I know TLC has a contract with Kate and her little army of 8 and she needs to fulfill her contract duties but when will the children be able to sign their own contract? Their minds are not developed enough to fully understand the ramifications of being in the spot light all time. Yes they love it now, but when they are old enough to fully understand what their parents did... I do not think they are gonna be pleased. This is why parents are put in control of children's affairs... but when you have a spotlight hogger like Kate, she isn't doing what a Mother should be doing... PROTECTING HER CHILDREN!!!



And its BULL**** that its all about the money to fund their college tutitions when they are older... they have MORE than enough money to take care of each other now...



GET OUT OF SHOW BUSINESS KATE... YOU ARE GOING TO RUIN YOUR CHILDREN'S LIVES



BOYCOTT KATE PLUS 8 AND HER OTHER ****ING SHOW!!! SHE NEEDS TO REMEMBER SHE IS A MOTHER NOT A SUPERSTAR!!!

Is this a picture of a parade with Kate as the grand marshall because she is way ahead of all her kids, as the onlookers watch. This picture tells a lot-Kate could care less about the kids, they are left behind to walk with whoever so Kate gets the spotlight. This woman is beyond words.

This is ridiculous. Come on?! She needs two more shows? I couldn't stand the first show. Let those kids be KIDS and stop shoving them in the lime light. kate is an attention whore who will keep pushing her kids until the money train has been sucked dry. I feel bad for those kids for having parents who really don't give a **** about their best interest but would rather duke it out in a tabloid war saying they don't give a **** about their kids. Stupid!

This woman had a chance to be an EXCELLENT example for motherhood, which includes staying married for better or for worse!!! Instead, she chose materialism, vanity and excess. Those poor children need their selfish parents to go to counseling and WORK on the right path, not a path of destruction!!!! Put God first, like you used to do.
