While Kate Gosselin is still adjusting to life away from the TV cameras, her former costar – and former husband – Jon Gosselin is quite happy outside the spotlight. Living in a small cabin roughly 30-minutes away from the house Kate shares with the kids, Jon is still miles away from the kind of adventure-packed life he used to have.
"It's more rural, more of a farm community," he says of his home now. As for his activities with his kids, whom he sees once during the week and every other weekend, he says, "We have backyard barbecues, we go to Walmart."

It's been more than two years since Kate Gosselin and her brood of eight – twins Mady and Cara, 12, and sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, Leah and Aaden, 9 – appeared on their own TV series, and the single mom is decidedly humble about her circumstances.
"I'm living very carefully these days," Gosselin tells PEOPLE in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday.
Now that her TLC reality show is a thing of the past, the matriarch is making ends meet "piecing and patching together" an income from a variety of projects, she says.

After a photo was leaked online showing Kate Gosselin making what many are calling an apparent racist gesture – slanting her eyes – the former reality TV star is defending her actions.
Gosselin, 38, writes on her blog that she's "the last person [who] could be called a racist." In fact, the photo (which she says was private and never intended to be shared online) reminds her of happier times with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, with whom she was "goofing off" in the picture years ago.

When it comes to parenting, Kendra Wilkinson considers Kate Gosselin her mentor.
"If there's any person in this world I'm going to take motherly advice from, it's going to be Kate Gosselin," Wilkinson, 27, told PEOPLE on Friday. "She has eight kids and she knows what she's doing with them. When she told me advice, I listened. With most people, I'm just like, 'Whatever ... whatever, I'm not going to listen to you.' But she's the type I would take advice from."
The two moms connected while filming an episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which airs Tuesday on ABC (8 p.m. ET). While Wilkinson stayed in Gosselin's Pennsylvania home with her eight kids, Gosselin, 37, ventured to L.A. to live with Wilkinson's hubby Hank Baskett and their 3-year-old son, Hank Baskett IV.

Kate Gosselin has gotten another pink slip.
A year after her TLC reality show was canceled, the reality mom, 37, has been fired by CouponCabin after 11 months of blogging for the couponing website.
"A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin," founder and CEO Scott Kluth wrote in a post on Tuesday.

Kate Gosselin is looking for her plus-one, and she's hoping to find him on the same place she debuted her plus-eight: on TV.
The divorced mother, 37, has signed on to shoot a dating show, which has yet to be picked up by a network, reports E! News.
"She is ready to find love again and to move on from her past," a source tells E! "She's excited. This is a chance to start something new."

Three years after his headline-making, acrominious divorce, Jon Gosselin says he and Kate are getting along now – and he's sorry for the way he behaved post-split, he tells PEOPLE in a new interview.
"I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me," he says, referring to the steady stream of women he dated after their split.
He also accepts his share of responsibility for the divorce. "I was passive-aggressive," he says. "Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating."
Now, he says, times have changed.

It's still just Kate plus eight.
Kate Gosselin revealed Wednesday on Dr. Drew's Lifechangers that she's still single, though she's open to the idea of dating.
"I am lonely," says the former reality star mom, 36. "I clean up the house, put kids to bed, and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person – I don't know if I feel ready for that."
Asked if she has a love life, she replied: "No. I'm too busy. I think a lot of my friends, who are being constructive, say, 'Gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?' My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation, it probably will be the person."

She's used to chasing after her children (and at times being chased by paparazzi) but Kate Gosselin had a different reason to be running down the famous Las Vegas Strip on Sunday.
The mother of eight, who bundled up on an unusually chilly night with a top that said "Finishing Is Winning," completed the Zappos.com Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon – her first marathon – in 4 hours, 59 minutes and 21 seconds.
"I'm not one to do anything lightly," Gosselin, 36, told PEOPLE before running the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon. "I either do it or I kill it. I guess this is considered killing it."
