Kate Gosselin Kate Plus 8 Reality TV Show
Kate Gosselin Kate Plus 8 Reality TV Show – It appears as if Kate Gosselin will be returning to television with her entire family in tow. Her eight children have been cleared to work on the upcoming reality television show titled “Kate Plus 8.” That family had previously appeared on the hit reality television show “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” before the show was cut short due to the divorce of Jon and Kate Gosselin.
“Each child is individually permitted, and they need to be renewed every six months,” Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry spokesman Troy Thompson recently stated.
Jon and Kate Gosselin had previously come under fire after Pennsylvania labor officials learned that the couple had not obtained permits for the children during their previously television appearances. After a quick investigation, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry has decided that no charges will be filed for the previous violation, however, Kate Gosselin’s talent agency was required to sign a document stating that they would ensure all children have permits before appearing on future television shows, or else the previous case could be re-opened and charges could be filed. The mix-up apparently came when producers from “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ decided that since the cameras were only filming the daily lives of the children, permits would not be required. The Department of Labor and Industry did not agree, and classified their participation as “work.”
A minimum of 15 percent of the children’s earnings must be placed in a irrevocable trust account, which can not be withdrawn from until the children have turned 18.
Several family members have stepped forward in recent months claiming that they had concerns over how the children were treated during the taping of the reality television show. In one report, the Gosselin’s reportedly faked Christmas, waking the children up one morning and telling them that Santa had come, so the cameras could capture a genuine reaction by the children. They were not told until the taping had finished that it was not actually Christmas morning, and that they would celebrate Christmas on another day as well.
“Can you imagine how confused eight little kids were that morning?” asked Kevin Krieder, husband of Kate Gosselin’s sister-in-law.
