Kate Gosselin Blindsided As TLC Cancels Kate Plus 8

News is just circulating that Kate Gosselin will be out of a job after TLC cancels Kate Plus 8 at the end of its current season.   Kate Plus 8, which was previously Jon & Kate Plus 8, was TLC’s attempt to keeps the Gosselin’s franchise in syndication even though the couple was going through a very messy, public divorce.

This news apparently came as something of a shock to Kate Gosselin who recently made this comment in an interview with the Today Show;

“Nobody has told me about being cancelled. We’re happy to continue on and will do so as long as people are watching.”

But unfortunately people weren’t watching enough.   According to the Washington Post, ratings for Kate plus 8 dropped at or below 1million which apparently was not sufficient for TLC to deem it ready for another season.

Kate, understandably distraught, tweeted the following message;

“TLC canceled it. I’m sorry. We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind fun-filled adventures. Thanks to TLC and our many, many supportive and diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!”

We can only assume most of the tears came from Kate Gosselin given that her main source of income will soon be coming to an end. Jon Gosselin on the other stated he’s “relieved” by the cancellation.

Wonder what she will do with her free time: Shop new show ideas to other networks perhaps…make a splash by dating a new, hot man….Or maybe just take a break altogether and spend some much needed quality time with her family.

Nahhh…I anticipate a spin off somewhere between the Lifetime Network and Bravo. Where do you think Kate Gosselin and her Plus 8 will end up?
