After more than two years without TLC’s cameras, viewers will find very little has changed on TLC’s “Kate Plus 8″ specials.
Kate Gosselin has always been a force to reckon with. What would you expect from a woman who carried and delivered six babies at the same time?
TLC revisits Kate, her twins — Cara and Mady — who are now 13, and the sextuplets — Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel — who are all about to turn 10, in a two-part special airing Thursday at 10/9c and next Thursday, June 26 at 10/9c.
How have the kids changed since the show? What are their interests now? And what exactly does Kate do for a living? All that and more will be addressed during the special. Plus, the family goes down memory lane to revisit some of their greatest memories from the show.
In TheWrap’s exclusive preview from the specials, Kate explains (and illustrates) her belief that one should never allow their kids to win.
“Hate away,” she challenges viewers, “But, I have a problem with parents who let their children win, because nobody is going to ‘let me’ win.”
She makes some pretty good points as to why she believes that way, but of course, Kate tends to take things overboard in the execution of what she believes. For example, she’s playing a dodgeball-like game with the kids and she’s taking no prisoners.
