Like it or not, Kate Gosselin will be back on the tube!
The mom of eight — who some Star readers love and others just love to hate — did not get the axe from TLC, as has been reported. Kate Plus 8 will be back on the air next month.
“It is just rumors," a source at the show tells Star. "The next episode will air in November.”
As for why there's been a gap between airdates of the program — which was always described as a series of TV specials and not a weekly show — it’s because the children are in school full time now and that's been the priority.
“They were able to shoot a lot in the summer, because the kids were out of school," adds the source. "With all the kids in school now, they shoot more sporadically.”
As for Twist of Kate, the new Kate series that was announced in May, there’s still no premiere date.
In the summer, the network also confirmed that that Kate will appear on TLC’s new series Sarah Palin’s Alaska, starring the former vice presidential candidate. "The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode," a TLC rep said at the time. That show is set to premiere on Nov. 14 at 9pm.
