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.

In kate's new show Twist of kate, isn't she going to be traveling all of the US living in other peoples shoes and stuff like that. how can she take the 8 kids and travel to these places. i wouldn't want my kids traveling so much when their young like that. the kids needs to have a stable life. and traveling so much isn't good for them.

I think the bigger issue here is - how could the courts let her appear on tv with her latest porn-star hairstyle???

Totally agree with Liz. I didnt watch all episodes (once in a while), but since the beginning i couldnt understand what in the world is he doing with that woman! She's a lunatic. And I really feel bad for the kids. I can't believe people think it is in any way a normal life for the kids. Haven't they been through enough?! All they need right now is as normal as possible childhood. Kate already stole half of it, dont ruin it completely. What a sadistic creature! >(

This "mother" and I use that term lightly should be ashamed of her self for pushing these kids into a TV show just look at all of their faces in this photo no one of them smiling they look like they are being dragged through hell. All this woman sees are the numbers in her bank account rising

First of all the children are not "child actors" they are being their normal selves. There is no scripting going on here. And here is to ROB who keeps saying he hopes they die. You are one sick being. I started to say human, but that would not be correct for you.

I heard she is going to have a show helpin other families or hanging around them or something like that, anyway why don't she spend time with her family you know those kids that she wanted before trying to help out other families. Someone need to sit down with her and like shake her with some sense and put her in a room to watch all the episodes of her old show so she can see where she went wrong.
And for all the JOn haters, i'm a girl so listen don't force a man to have a child with you b/c it will not end good. They had the twins and he didn't want anymore kids but she wanted oh just one more and he didn't even want 1 more but he give in to her and look what happened. It's like Angelina adopting all these kids and having them flying all over the world to whatever movie shoot she or Brad is doing and them kids have no stable place or even friends as soon as they settle somewhere it's back on a plain.. it's like their Army Brats or somethin.
And for you people that's going to say oh Angelina have the money to adopt, well yes she have the money but does she have the time.

Who wears a dress & high heels at the airport while you are dragging eight kids around? Oh..I forgot...she is a "famous celebrity". This woman and her kids are a joke and anybody who cares about the welfare of these kids needs to tune this show out. What ever happened to the PARENTS going out and earning the money to support the family? Since when are children expected to bring in the $$$?

I don't like her new hair and i believe that her old hairstyle loooked better and this hair style makes her look so old. Her old hairstyle made her look younger than she do now . I don't know if people didn't like it cause mosst womenthat had the hairstyle were black women and idon't kow if that was the problem with it but this **** that took so many hours was waste of hours. The old hairstyle was her own and this **** is just her bowing to what everyone wants and it's just not her. She looks like an asss. It's like the hair is just lying on her head like that.

At least Octomom doesn't exploit her kids for money.
Kate and Jon are both worthless.

I disagree with the person that said that the kids should be dressing themselves, i don't believe kids should be dressing themselve. That's some ****. At that age it's the parents job to be buying the clothes and dressing the kids.
What you want them to dress themself the way Shilhoh dresses herself. Please give me a break.
Talking about Shilouh i know this has nothing to do with this post.
But i just signed up to TMZ, so here's what i got to say about Shilhoh. On other websites i heard that Shilho dresses herself like that, so i want someone to tell me this does Shilhouh also buys her own clothes b/c someone is buying those clohtes for her which would mean that someone is putting those clothes in her closet for her to pick it out and you mean to tell me that little girl took herself to get her hair cut on her own.
Does anyone remember that Angelina wnated to marry that Chinese girl and said she wished that girls could marry girls b/c if they could she would of married that chinese girl.
So i'm thinkin maybe she's transferring that unto her first natural born. Do yall really thinkshe would let that first kid she adopted wear dresses and heels. hell no, he's the only one she truely loves i think.
