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.

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.

I am just disgusted with all the mean comments!! She is a woman trying in life and not giving up and trying to find some sort of normal in her life for her kids and who are we to say any different!! Stars, reality show stars, music stars we all must remember they are people good or bad!! If we choose to watch or not watch the show please remember there might be a day when those kids grow up and read these comments! How would you feel if that was you???? Ask yourself that first!!!!

Okay you horrible people most of you loved the children and the show for the years it was on. Yeah bad things happened that is life and for me I am happy all the kids are healthy not dead and kidnapped and some bad thing. So be happy for them and support their mommy who needs to make a living to support them and make sure then can go to college and have a good life. IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT??? NO of course not. Kate, you do what you have to do to take care of your children legally and love them always. America stop judging.

Now that Jon is gone, Kate will be even a bigger shrew to her kids. She is such a c**t.

Yeah, the kids are soooo excited about being back in the limelight and in front of the cameras again. That's why 6 of them are walking with their heads hung down in this pic.. they look really happy! Hey, at least Kates smiling and that's what REALLY matters!

# 169. There are paparazzi at LAX on a 24/7 basis so they know who leaves as well as who arrives. It was certainly no secret that Kate was eliminated from DTWS & would be heading back east & that BWI is the most convenient airport to where they live. It wouldn't take anyone tipping off the paps for them to be there.

Were you in that reality show about nurses I read about in one of the nursing mags?
Can't remember what mag it was in, may have been my nursing update mag I receive quarterly from DOH. I never could figure out exactly if it was going to be on tv or as webcast shows only.
Wait...I saw it thru one of my travel nurse mags, like AMA or Medical Personnel. One of those.
I'm an RN also, but here in the States

I personally do not understand why some people seem to dislike Kate Gosselin so much~ obviously these people are not parents or mom(s) of "multiples". AS a twin mommy myself, I think she is doing an extraordinary job raising those kids and doing all that she can to keep their lifestyle consistent with where it was prior to Jon flaking out on his entire family. GO KATE and YES I WILL BE watching both of her new shows. Thanks goodness Jon was ignorant enough to "burn his own bridge"~ he certainly did not add anything to the show.

I think anyone who could wish death or unemployment on a single mother and her children should be thrown off the planet....I would love to see any one of you carry, and give birth to eight children then watch your husband begin to resent you because of a decision you made together...because all of a sudden he feels like he missed something...Kate may have a little bitch in her but I have a lot, and would dare anyone to step to me and say to my face the mess that im reading in these comments. Give that woman her due respect...because through all of this she has held her head high and done what was needed to protect and care for her children...something I believe any mother would for you people that only have negative things to say about this STRONG woman...kick rocks with open toe shoes and choke on the dirt that flies up from it!!!!! Go KATE!!!!!

There are different ways of taking care of your children. The reason WHY people are angry with her it's because she exploits her kids. If that was just another dumb blonde looking for riches no one would give a damn, but she obviously forgot how to be a mother. She's so focused on being a "star" that she forgets about the needs of her kids. And the most important thing they need are parents and security.
