Kate Plus Eight

FIRST LOOK: Kate Gosselin Goes on an Ice Cream Run – in Heels!

Originally posted 08/27/2010 01:00AM

After taking care of some unusual household chores, Kate and her eight are heading to the Big Apple.

In a new Kate Plus 8 special, Kate Gosselin takes twins Mady and Cara and her sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel to New York City by train for some sightseeing, including a trip to the Statue of Liberty, Chinatown and Times Square.

While riding in a double-decker bus, Kate decides to stop to get ice cream – cookie dough, cookies and cream, vanilla or chocolate? – for the kids. Well, it's been a hot summer in NYC, and after scooping up eight cones, Kate, with production assistants Danny and Clark trotting in her wake, sprints in heels back to the bus as the ice cream melts. "It instantly started ... streaming down our arms, dripping off of our elbows and I thought, we will run or we will be handing the kids puddles."

The new Kate Plus 8 airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.

Kate Gosselin’s Summer To-Do List: Chicken Coop and Paparazzi Proofing

Kate Gosselin’s Summer To-Do List: Chicken Coop and Paparazzi Proofing

Summer is a time to get things done in Kate Gosselin's household. "I'm home now, post Dancing with the Stars, here I go," she said during Sunday's double episodes of Kate Plus 8.

The first order of business: construction of a chicken coop and starting her own little egg farm. "I buy four, five, or more dozen eggs a week," she said. "That's it, we're getting chickens."

And so they did – with the help of Farmer Dave and Farmer Dan, who trucked in an easy-to-assemble coop for 16 chickens and one rooster.

The whole clan pitched in to help, a phenomenon Kate dubbed the "Farmer Dan Effect."

"The kids were willing to carry pieces of the coop and in no time all of those pieces were in the field," she said. "These are moments that make me very happy. The kids were suddenly very willing to participate ... It was a family event – we're putting together our chicken coop."

Evan Lysacek Calls Kate Gosselin the 'Sweetest Woman in the World'

Evan Lysacek Calls Kate Gosselin the 'Sweetest Woman in the World'

It's only been three weeks since Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek placed second behind winner Nicole Scherzinger on Dancing with the Stars, but the skater says he's still dancing in his dreams.

"I dream that I have to go out and dance but I forgot to learn the routine," Lysacek told PEOPLE at his 24 Hour Fitness and Coke Workout Sweepstakes event in New York recently. "I've had that dream two or three times ... The music starts and I'm like, 'Oh no! We didn't have time to learn it.' Then I would wake up and realize it was a dream."

Despite the occasional nightmare, Lysacek, 25, looks back fondly on his DWTS experience, calling it "remarkable." He's cherishing the memories as much as the new friends he made on the show. "I've kept in really close touch with the entire cast," he says. "The I met were the best thing I took from being on the show. We all walked away with a new family."

And that includes Kate Gosselin, with whom he says he's in constant communication. "Kate is in New York right now. We've been texting each other back and forth and we're trying to get together," he says. "We are very close. She is the sweetest woman in the world. We were instantly friends and everyone really loved her on the show. We missed her so much when she left. She's hilarious and she's always joking around. I don't think she ever said a serious sentence."

Want to hear Kate Gosselin scream in terror?

Well, she does just that when she and her eight kids face an alligator in the Florida Everglades. Gosselin took her children to the Sunshine State to celebrate the sextuplets sixth birthday. The surprise trip was documented for TLC's two-hour special, Kate Plus 8, which marks the return of the Gosselin brood to TV since Jon & Kate Plus 8 went off the air last year.

What else is in store for Kate and the kids on Sunday's show? More close encounters with creatures – they'll feed sting rays and exotic birds and swim with dolphins – as well as some tasty treats. They'll participate in an orange juice squeezing contest and eat birthday cake, of course!

Kate Plus 8 airs Sunday (9 p.m. EST) on TLC.
