'Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10' Brings Gosselin's Parenting Into the Spotlight Again
Well hello there, 2011! Haven't seen you in a few years, but some form of time travel trickery must be responsible if the Gosselins are suddenly back on our radar. It's either that or Jon and Kate Gosselin's sextuplets are turning ten and TLC couldn't resist milking a special out of it. Spoiler alert: It's definitely the latter.
The last time I really paid attention to Kate Gosselin was during the 2011 Emmy Awards opening number, in which Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon totally snubbed her out of an opportunity to dance onstage with Jon Hamm (see below). It was really cold, but also a pretty nice swan song for her fame. Now she's back on TLC, showing off her stern side once again in this clip. As she says, "I got these girls cell phones and iPads so that I could take them away."
There is notably no Jon featured in this clip, but that makes sense considering the lack of the "& Jon" in the middle of that Kate Plus Eight and considering the hullaballoo around their divorce years back. It's yet to be seen whether he'll make an appearance for the birthday celebrations the special seems to be centered around.
Welcome back, Gosselins! People will probably make fun of your hair a little less this time around.
