The well-known TLC mom, Kate Irene Gosselin was born on March 28, 1975, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was known for her showcasing the life of her family, specifically her set of twins, her sextuplets, and her former husband on television every week.
She was also infamously known for her manager-mom-styled haircut and her nagging tendencies that Jon had no problem expressing his annoyances with on-air, which only drew in more ratings for the series! Jon & Kate Plus 8 originally aired in April of 2007 and officially ended in July 2017.
After ten years of marriage, the couple had notoriously divorced in 2009 and they were constantly caught up in the tabloids with their heated arguments both during the show and in real-life. During certain events, even the police had to be called and notified of their verbal disputes.
After the divorce
After a brief hiatus from the TLC show, Kate continued on with filming in 2011 with her own show Kate Plus 8. During this time, Kate had written and released a series of non-fiction books, four to be exact. Her books focused primarily on her family life, as well as her very own cookbook.
Kate's return to reality TV
In 2010, Kate starred in the entertaining show, Dancing with the Stars, and then was featured in an episode of Wife Swap with model Kendra Wilkinson in 2013. The following year, she was also a contestant on The Apprentice, which was also a celebrity version of the series. She was never a winner in any of the competitive reality shows, but in 2019, Kate announced her return to television.
As a single woman, she now has her own show called Kate Plus Date, where she tests the dating scene. We even see a closer look into Kate's life with her twin daughters, Cara and Mady, who just celebrated graduating high school! Will there be a season 2? We have yet to find out!
