TV Watch Kate Plus Eight
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.
After a stint on Dancing with the Stars, Kate Gosselin is returning to TLC in a series of specials set to air this summer. Kate Plus 8 follows the reality star's life at home with her kids – and PEOPLE.com has a sneak preview of the first episode, which airs June 6 (9 p.m. EST).
In the episode, Gosselin plans a trip to celebrate the 6th birthday of her sextuplets. Their destination? Orlando, Fla., where Gosselin takes them to Discovery Cove, a park where guests can swim with fish and hang out on beaches alongside tropical birds and animals.
Of course, though, there's drama.
It's official! Kate Gosselin is returning to TLC with a new reality show, Twist of Kate. And in even bigger news for fans of the original Jon and Kate Plus 8, her eight adorable children will also be back on TV in several Kate Plus 8 specials. Twist of Kate will feature Gosselin responding to fan letters from those inspired by her story as a means to profile women in their own challenging situations while the Kate Plus 8 specials will focus on her life as a single mother and costar her eight young children.
