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.

Kate's children have not been cleared by the PA Dept of Labor and as a matter of policy, the Dept of Labor does NOT discuss this with outside sources. It's rather telling that this information was posted on a Tabloid website, on a weekend as there are no spokespersons available during the weekend to even disseminate this information to the "press". I find it rather odd that this was posted on a Saturday after word was mentioned that TLC/Discovery/Figure 8 productions still have not complied with the basic requirements to obtain permits for any minor child in Pennsylvania. Believe nothing that you read and half of what you see.

TMZ can you do a poll on who does not want to hear about Kate anymore. ENOUGH ALREADY, she is such a rude and nasty person. She wants everyone to feel sorry for her that's why she cries for the camera all the time.

51. Well I guess this just shows how much of a fame whore is really is. I mean come on now 2 shows, please these poor kids they don't see their mom much as it is, now with the 2 shows expecially life with kate, that means she will never ever be home.



I mean the other night i saw a show when she was going through the airport with the kids, and then came home, but yet as soon as she got home she left again in a waiting limo and her bodyguard.



This woman needs to be stopped. As as far as boycotting the show, oh you bet these are 2 shows that i will never be watching. Can't stand this fame whore, and I really feel bad for the kids. When they grow up they will have their own show, it will be called " KATE'S GROWN CHILDREN NOW IS COUNSELING BECAUSE THEY ARE MESSED UP IN THE HEAD".

After spending last week in CA with her kids, she returned home via Baltimore airport. She did drop off her kids and leave because it was JON's turn with the kids. The following day the paparazzi pics showed him at the property with the kids playing outside.
Kate and Jon do not stay in the house together. I guess Jon being a dirtbag over the summer publicly trashing Kate had some measure in their arrangements.
OMG, she will be like any other working parent, she has helper/nanny/babysitter/aftercare, whatever you want to call it. She will have to pull in money because Jon will not.
Maybe her kids will expose their wonder "aunt jodi and uncle kevin who have sold stories to the tabloids and to jodi's sister who runs an anti-gosselin website.



My nannies do not raise my kids but they are great to have when you need extra hands and eyes.

ENOUGH ALREADY! Kate is supporting her children, that should be the bottom line! Since when do people who don't know you get to decide what you do to support your family??? I have NEVER heard anyone complain about Military that leave their children for years to murder people! What about Jon? I haven't seen any evidence of him being anywhere near the kids in months and everyone knows he's not working. You know I wouldn't choose to support my children by pole dancing, but ALOT of women do! This woman can't win. Would you rather she becomes OctoMom. She's not working, taking her kids to Disneyland everyday and the Tax Payers are going to be paying for her kids for the next 18 years (and probably further). It's really sad that some of you have so much hate for a Mother you don't even know. It must be so lonely to be you.

I support Kate and the 8 children. The children seem well adjusted and normal. All the attention began with Jon's negative behaviour. They have more normal lifestyle than the family with 18/19 children who use their older children as babysitters, etc. The major networks couldn't handle the fact that TLC had one of the highest rated shows on TV and set about to destroy them, which was easy with Jon waiting in the wings.

Kate seems nice and her kids are surely peaches and cream, but it makes no sense to me why people plop down in front of their televisions to watch the kids growing up and Kate growing rich.

Poor kids. I wonder if they really have a choice. Doesn't sound like it.



I have a horrible feeling that 10-20 years from now, people are going to look at the Gosselins and ask, "Why didn't anybody stop these parents from exploiting their kids??" Sounds like any objections Jon had were overcome by TLC's pocketbook.



Sad.

Kate is despicable with her 8 little tax deductions in tow. I predict this new TLC show will end badly and it will be the kids that will pay the price for Kate's selfishness.

Joey, I agree with you 100%. Those poor kids are stuck with this bitch for a long time. Think of the the therapy those poor babies will need. Nursing pays well, why not phase your life down a little Kate you attention whore and go home and BE this wonderful mother YOU profess to be. Everyone is so worried about her not getting a fair shake on DWTS. She shoud have been gone week one!! Pam Anderson hasn't danced before, neither had Shannon Daugherty, I doubt Erin has, and they managed to learn, and learn very well. I call BS on "giving Kate a break." Most people on DWTS have no dancing experience. It wasn't just Kate. Nicole S. just shuildn't be there, it's not fair. She has been dancing her whole life. Of course she is fabulous. Props to her, but she shouldn't win. She certainly has an unfair advantage. Anyway, sorry to get off topic. KATE....PLEASE GO AWAY. No one is going to watch your damn shows anyway.
