As if Kate Plus 8 wasn’t insufferable enough, the good ol’ producers at TLC thought it best to toss in one of the most polarizing politicians in recent history, Sarah Palin. You read that right – Kate and her gang of [adorable] munchkins will be heading north – way north – to get schooled on the ways of the Alaskan wilderness while campin’ with the Palins.
The momma Grizzly herself will be showin’ the Gosselins how to fend off bears, wolves, and those pesky Russian neighbors, while maybe doin’ a little cross-promotion for Sarah Palin’s Alaska, her upcoming show on the Discovery Channel, TLC’s sister network.
While it’s not unusual for us curious/masochistic worker bees of the Internet to watch a show purely to get in on postmortem criticism, the combination of Palinspeak and Kate’s eyerolls may be enough for us to go sans reality television for a night. And thankfully, we shouldn’t expect these two lovely [cough, cough] ladies to become BFFs off-screen. Popeater‘s inside source reported that “A friendship is unlikely” and “with Kate, out of sight means out of mind.” Whew!
