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.

Is that a cigarette in this trash mother's mouth? If so, does she have to do it in front of her tribe of munchkins?

sooo much hate from all of you and none of you even know this woman. NO she is not smoking, NO pics of her going off with the bodyguard. She was under contract to be on Regis. and as for the 2 shows, this sites seem to leave off a lot. The show with the kids, is NOT a regular show but SPECIALS that run occaisionally with updates on how the kids are doing and growing up. How come no hate for the dugars or the other 2 shows with septuplets? It is amazing what people think child abuse is. Going to Disney, getting a bigger house, playhouses, many trips all being comp'ed by different companies and tlc. YOU don't like kate, DON'T WATCH THE SHOWS. She is not abusing these kids. If you did watch the shows, she crafts all the time with them, she feeds them organic foods, they are well behaved, etc. She is obsessive, yes, which is good. The kid actors that got addicted to drugs, their parents never knew where they were, what they were doing, just wanted the paycheck. Kate if she isn't there, Aj hammer and billy bush have reported that she is always on the phone checking up on them. That is not a mother who is just a famewhore.

I'll defend Jon again. I saw every episode of J/K+8. Jon is by far the better parent. Kate has TLC's publicity dept behind her. I suspect that when all is said and done, the kids will want to be with their dad more since he's the one who actually enjoyed them. Kate just wanted control, which isn't going to happen with 8 young children.

Small Chested and Loving It!!    

When is Kate going to allow her kids to dress as they want? What is the deal with all of the kids dressing alike? So damn annoying! It's as if her kids don't have their own brains and can't express what their own personality is. Let them grow up and make their own decisions Kate! I was dressing myself at 4 years old. Damn!!!

I think the reason The Duggars and Hayes, et al. aren't getting as much flak is because the parents of those families aren't out whoring themselves and by default, their children, on every tv show and rag mag in the country. Aside from The Today show, what shows have you seen Michelle Duggar and Betty Hayes on? Have either of those families 'gone Hollywood'? No. Kate is a famewhore who uses her 8 children to make a 'career'. She has no other 'marketable skill'.

Am i the only one that see how sad these kids look in this pic. Everyone keeps hatin on Jon but if any of you watch all seasons of the show you would of seen that it was him always home with the kids and doing stuff with the kids. And most of the time she treated him like the servant,plummer,her ninth child, the repair, etc.
He did most of the fix ups in that house which saved them a whole lot of money and she was always raggin on him to do this and do it that way. He should of left her ass a long time ago.
Since the divorce everytime you see her with the kids the kids always look so sad.
And is TV the only way she can feed her kids.
And i don't know why everyone is falling for her ****, like when she was on Dancing with the Stars and her and her dancing partner was arguing she did to him what she used to do to Jon which was to put on that low quiet innocent voice so people could feel sorry for. Like oh poor me why is he treating me like that.
And everyone is eating it up.

Every one should leave kate along, she a very good mother, and the kids are doing great. Unless you have been a single mother you have no idea how hard it is to make a living. I wish her nothing but happiness.
