Are Jon and Kate Gosselin getting back together?
A friend of the couple tells Fox411.com that Jon and Kate have reconciled to the point of a touch-and-go friendship.
Kate has recently loosened her grip on Jon's scheduled visits with their eight children, and she's even allowed him back in the house when she's in it!
"Kate always allowed Jon to see the kids, but she made sure she was out of the house - their schedules there never intersected," the insider told Fox411.com. "She has been getting back to her normal life and schedule since 'Dancing With the Stars,' and she decided to let Jon have some extra time with the kids this weekend. She wants him in their life and Kate even let him in the house on their birthday with her. It was something that hasn't happened in almost a year! It's great for the kids."
Perhaps Kate's new forgiving attitude towards Jon has to do with her new TV gig, "Kate Plus 8." The show debuts on TLC on June 6th and will include Kate with their eight kids Cara, Maddie, Aaden, Joel, Alexis, Leah, Colin and Hannah.
"Kate is relieved to be back to working with TLC. The show features her living her daily life. Kate has her routines back and the show will feature the kids in LA with her for their trip to Disneyland and at home doing the average stuff that viewers love," the source said. "It's as normal as she's ever going to get and the work allows her to relax a little more and enjoy her time with the children. She's got a sense of peace and balance in her life. Kate's in a good place after a tumultous year."
Kate will also be making a return appearance to "Dancing With the Stars" on May 24th and 25th for the show's finale, but don't expect many fancy new dance moves.
"Kate is back to being mother first, with no distractions. She gets to work and be a mother while she's working. That is the best job she could ever have. As long as Jon lives nearby and keeps his personal life out of the media, he's on the right road to being a better father," said the insider. "When he puts the kids first and makes an effort for them, Kate really gets behind him and supports more time with him. This is the most cordial and friendly Jon and Kate have been since the separation. They are working it out."
