You’d think it would be a relief to ditch the camera crew that’s been all up in your business for six years. But apparently it’s not so for Kate Gosselin, who admits that she is “freaking out, big time” at the prospect of life after reality television. The mega-mom put on a brave face last month when it was announced that TLC cancelled her show Kate Plus 8. Yet now she’s admitting her insecurities about the future, and fearing for the welfare of her children. Fearing for the welfare of her children? There’s a first. Kate is claiming that her offspring army “weren’t ready” to leave the show. “Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next,” she told People. In fact, the magazine made Kate’s financial woes their cover story this week. That oughta make the kids feel better.
“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” she continued. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.” How…comforting? Damn, that’s a cold dose of reality, and not the kind that pays the big bucks. The real question is, what the hell happened to her piles of TV cash? Between …Plus 8 and her stint on Dancing With The Stars, you’d think she’d be able to build a house out of benjamins for her brood. Our guess? Divorce lawyers, therapy fees for eight, and salon bills for making her hair look less like a porcupine.
