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 TVâ€¦ 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, â€œtrying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in the different environments,â€ according to TheWrap.
The audience will be involved in the show â€” which has an interactive component â€” choosing the professions and challenges Kate has to accomplish.
â€œItâ€™s more like Kate Gosselin, firefighter,â€ the insider told TheWrap, â€œnot Kate Gosselin, wife and homemaker.â€
The tentative debut of Kateâ€™s solo show is late spring or earlier summer.
â€œSheâ€™s proven herself to be a celebrity in her own right,â€ an executive at Discovery, which owns TLC, told TheWrap, â€œand, with the interest she generates, she can fit into any role on her own.â€
As per her ex husband Jon Gosselinâ€™s request, John & Kate Plus 8 ceased production after 5 years because Jon felt his children were being exploited.
