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.

Wow, what a sad picture. The kids are looking very sad and the only one who looks happy to have the cameras on them is Kate. Will the kids ever get their privacy?

This is a prime example of how government SHOULD NOT BE IN CHARGE OF THINGS. This woman should be prohibited from displaying these children in any form in entertainment.
Social services is part of government as well, but here is a place for them. Take those children from her before something terrible happens.

I wish she could see that she is harming her children by all of this. She needs to be their mother and not try to be a star by the time these poor kids hit teenage years they will be a mess.

WooooooooooooooooooooooHoooooooooooooooooooo Kate sucked on dancing with the stars and LOST!!!!!! I am almost certain she will suck on this new show if it ever goes into production..... Good Luck, John, on everything. Good job for leaving that money hungry no respect having Kate...... Watch out for the kids, too, because she will ruin them with this new show.

This sure is tough one to call. On one hand, I don't like to see children forced to do some reality tv show where they have cameras following them around all the time. But on the other hand, the money is going to help a single mother and her eight children.

I used to watch the year, in the early years....When Jon would help Kate pick out clothes because she had no fashion sence....Wonder who is picking out her clothes now? It's all about how she looks now, so very sad....And how can anyone blame Jon for rebelling against Kate, that's what happens when you have a parent/child relationship....She was never a wife, but his mother...and a mean mother at that....Yu just have to look at him for a sec and see, smoking, drinking, and parting, cleanly a child rebelling....Maybe they both should start going back to church......Oh, one more thing, why hasn't anyone asked why Kate's famiy isn't around, maybe they knew what she was really like all along............Well, that's my two cents

Nice that Pennsylvania has a Department of Child Exploitation that can approve the continuance of this endless psychological assault on defenceless little kids. In a normal world, these suffering kids would be removed from the narcissistic incompetent parent and placed in foster care or with relatives.
