New Details on Kate Gosselin's Upcoming Reality Show
Yes, Kate Gosselin is returning to the small screen -- but she'll be without her "plus eight."
According to entertainment site The Wrap, Gosselin, 34, will be "trying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in the different environments" on the upcoming as-yet-untitled TLC show, which is slated to premiere in late spring or early summer.
The show will likely have an interactive component, with the professions and corresponding challenges being somewhat determined by the audience, according to The Wrap.
One likely scenario: She works in a restaurant. (In December, Gosselin was spotted working behind the counter at a popular greasy spoon in Raleigh, N.C.)
Though a TLC rep says things are "still in development," The Wrap reports that Gosselin's new show will be "more like Kate Gosselin, firefighter, not Kate Gosselin, wife and homemaker."
Execs are convinced Gosselin -- who just debuted new extensions -- can headline her own gig. "She's proven herself to be a celebrity in her own right," an executive at Discovery, which owns TLC, told TheWrap. "With the interest she generates, she can fit into any role on her own."
Last year, Gosselin, known for guest hosting The View, also taped a pilot for a talk show costarring Food Network star Paula Deen, among other TV female personalities.
At a women's conference last year, she remarked: "I've been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?"
