In 2005, reality TV speaker Kate Gosselin and her family were featured on Discovery Health’s Surviving Sextuplets and Twins and the following year, Sextuplets and Twins: One Year Later. After great show ratings, Discovery Health signed the family to a reality series airing in 2007 called Jon & Kate Plus 8. With the show ratings growing, the family became instant celebrities.
With the family continually in the media, it was hard to separate their personal lives with their social lives. In 2009, Jon and Kate Gosselin announced they were separating but declared that the show must go on; unfortunately producers placed the show on hiatus. In 2009, TLC announced the show would air, but would be changed from Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8 and followed Kate as a single mother and the final episode appeared on November 23, 2009. Kate appeared as a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Starsand she has co-hosted The View. Her first book was released in 2008 titled, Multiple Blessings, debuting at number 5 on the New York Times Best-Seller list. Kate has gone on to write a total of four books.
Kate and her children were on the show Celebrity Wife Swap where Kate switched places with Kendra Wilkinson on February 26, 2013. Kate also appeared on season 14 of the show Celebrity Apprentice.
