Don’t you just love that title…I find it hilarious! I don’t know how Kate will continue the show with out Jon…will the kids be on the new show, “Twist of Kate”. Jon recently filed for custody of the 8 children they have, calling Kate an “absentee” mother since starting the show DWTS.
According to USA Today,
TLC announces plans today for the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star to get her own series, Twist of Kate, and to revisit her family life, without ex-husband Jon, in a series of Kate Plus 8 specials. It’s part of a plan to build on the channel’s growth that also includes Sarah Palin’s Alaska, a travelogue series about the state and its high-profile former governor.
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.”
