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.

I think Kate is the biggest user on earth. She will take the kids along, as long as they are making her money. Other than that, they get left behind under the care of strangers who are there, again, only for the money. Those kids are going to have serious social/emotional issues as they grow up. The only people around them are those who get paid to be with them. Kate said she was married to her kids and her career, but her career is nursing. She is a nurse. She is really married to her desire for fame.

ALL HER KIDS WERE ARTIFICIALLY MADE. SHE SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF HOW TO SUPPORT SO MANY OF THEM BEFORE SHE WENT THROUGH THE TREATMENT, LIKE REAL RESPONSIBLE PARENTS DO.
THE FACT IS THAT KATE THOUGHT OF HAVING A BUNCH OF KIDS TO USE THEM IN HER EVER SO SELFISH QUEST FOR FAME. SHE USED JON, SHE USED HER BODY, AND SHE IS STILL USING 8 OF GOD'S CHILDREN. SHE IS A PIG.

@Beans, you're disgusting. Comparing Kate to Women who murdered their children.
@Proud2beamom, you're clueless! She's not even on a cell phone. If you're so proud to be a Mom, why are you not spending a Sunday afternoon with your children? I guess reading tabloids and bashing other mothers is more important, huh?
@mydownthere, SHE IS SUPPORTING HER CHILDREN! Just because you don't agree with the way she pays the bills, doesn't mean she is a terrible mother!

Kates last words on DWTS was that she would be able to go home and spend more time with her kids. Yet, right after the show she was on regis and kelly and a few others? Really Kate, quit being hypocritical. In saying that you are just doing this to support your children. I call bull****. Kids don't need $4000.00 playhouses in the back yard. They need a parent there to catch them as the go down the slide, and help them back up to the top. Catch my drift?

whatever    

Only stupid retards would watch this disgusting show. Those who find entertainment in little kids performing or think its cute to see little kids on tv. Look at your child and think would I want all my child's private childhood moments to be on tv for everyone to watch? Poor gosselin kids have no say in what mommmy dearest does.

The ONLY think Kate Gosselin is worried about is HERSELF. She is not now nor will she ever be any kind of mother if she continues to submit her kids to this kind of life. Sell the mansion and downsize to a smaller home. You go back to nursing and Jon go back to IT work. The only thing kids really need is a Mom and Dad that are there for them and love them. All the material things don't mean anything.

OK kids; time to get off your ashes and get back to work. If you don't work you will end up homeless and hungry. Listen to mommy dearest and get back to work. Your eight little faces are making mommy rich and famous. Sorry kids but if you are told to work; you better work or else.

Why does not one person complain about the Duggar family with 19 kids now ??? That Mom/Dad doesn't even have time to interact with all their kids, the older ones take care of the younger ones.the older ones cook, clean do laundry because Mom can't do it all by herself..Why does she keep having kids when she is not the one taking care of all of them...such a shame...

For people who say "condoms are a good thing" (poster #2) Get your facts straight so you don't sound like an idiot. The sextuplets were conceived through intrauterine insemination.



Also...the world is NOT overpopulated. PLEASE, Jon and Kate's goal was never to have eight kids anyways. All they wanted was to have another baby(one)and ended up with six. I don't blame them for taking that risk either, infertility is a desperate feeling.
