After losing the show that made her famous when she and hubby Jon Gosselin went splitsville last year, Kate Gosselin is now preparing to make her return to reality TV… new hairdo and all. New reports reveal the mother of eights will premiere in a new TLC series of her very own.

An air date for the highly-anticipated program has not been released yet, but sources close to the project are now saying the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star will star in a series that shows Kate trying to go outside of her comfort zone, “trying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in the different environments,” according to TheWrap.

The audience will be involved in the show — which has an interactive component — choosing the professions and challenges Kate has to accomplish.

“It’s more like Kate Gosselin, firefighter,” the insider told TheWrap, “not Kate Gosselin, wife and homemaker.”

The tentative debut of Kate’s solo show is late spring or earlier summer.

“She’s proven herself to be a celebrity in her own right,” an executive at Discovery, which owns TLC, told TheWrap, “and, with the interest she generates, she can fit into any role on her own.”

As per her ex husband Jon Gosselin’s request, John & Kate Plus 8 ceased production after 5 years because Jon felt his children were being exploited.

Who exactly is anticipating this? Your live-in mother-in-law?

SOunds like a Canadian show called Ed’s Up, where Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies gets called to different parts of Canada and does one or two different jobs a show.

The only people for whom this show is “highly anticipated” are shut-ins, the mentally handicapped, and the criminally insane.

Oh, and Kate Gosselin. But I think she’s probably in that list.
