Kate Gosselin has landed her own TLC show, "Twist of Kate." And somewhere out there, Jon Gosselin is crying into a bottle of Ed Hardy sangria
. Anyway, the show will focus on Kate's struggle as a single mom raising her eight children. Just kidding! It has nothing to do with the kids. Hope they like nannies.
In Twist of Kate, Gosselin will use fan letters from women inspired by her story as the basis for profiles of women facing their own challenges. Twelve episodes will start airing in late summer.
"I look at it as a loose concept," says Gosselin, who says that despite rumors, she never contemplated dating or talk shows. "I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don't consider myself an expert on anything."
Gosselin will visit the homes and workplaces of everyday people. "She will be in that person's shoes. And more often than not, it's not going to be terribly comfortable for her," says TLC chief Eileen O'Neill. "She's game for things, but she also has limits and boundaries." (Source)
What I want to know exactly is who are the numbnuts out there inspired by Kate Gosselin's "story." Kate Gosselin's story is that she and her useless sack of crap husband played God with fertility treatments and had more kids than they could handle, got a reality show to help support the costs of raising eight children, let the fame go to their heads, turned against each other in a nasty public shitstorm, and now those kids they worked so goddamn hard to conceive think that the toaster is "mom." That's some story there. Maybe next TLC can have an inspiring show about a guy who hit himself in the head with a hammer until he went retarded.
