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.

In this picture the children don't look happy at all. Most of their heads are bent over. Has anyone considered how this continued publicity will affect these kiddies??

Seriously, get over it. These kids are not "working" they are playing at home while people film them. There are no lines to remember, scenes to set, etc. Anyone who thinks Kate doesn't care is well....silly to be nice. She is a single mother working with a dead beat ex-husband. Everyone loves to judge when they have no idea about the situation. Start judging your own family, clean up your perfect backyards before you go digging on someone elses! When did we all bedcome so holier than thou. I'm not trying to be mean but seriously think about it.

Enough of this talentless, useless woman already. Get her off the air. She needs to be a mother to her kids. Can't we find something better than this trash?

Ok people... these kids are holding their heads down because their faces are in every single magazine. They ar NOT abused. They are well taken care of.. They get fed, bathed, clothed, and nurtured. I would have to say that kate is doing a fantastic job as a mother. How would you like to raise 8 kids at once?!?!? These kids are stars, but when mama decides that camera time is over then its over. She has never let the camera crew take it too far and she knows when enough is enough. These people are just making th most out of having a large family and having the nastiest divorce of all time televised. Keep truckin' Kate! Your doin a good job!

#1. This picture was taken last year at the airport when they were returning home from a trip. #2. The kids are probably extremely tired and had just woke up from the trip. #3. When they showed this picture last year, Steve was in the background. To the person who wishes them dead you are an evil, miserable person who should be put away for life. #4. The new show is about KATE only. The kids will not be on that show at all. If your going to spread gossip read what is being written so you dont look like the jack a$$ that you are!
