Kate Gosselin spent her first full day back in Pennsylvania after getting the boot from Dancing With the Stars… at the tanning salon!

Leaving her eight children behind at their $1.1 million home with their father Jon, she hit up her fave local fake bake joint and also made time for a pedicure.

Kate, 35, hasn't spent much time with her kids since her run on DWTS wrapped up.

After catching up with them for 20 minutes on Thursday, she hopped into a limousine with her bodyguard Steve Neild, with whom she has denied having an affair, to drive to New York City to tape an apperance on Live with Regis and Kelly.

Kate told Entertainment Tonight last Tuesday that she was looking forward to seeing her children more now that she no longer has to fly back and forth to L.A. to tape the ABC show each week.

"They'll be glad to have me back," she said. "I'm thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing."

Soon Kate and the kids will be spending more time together… working.

TMZ.com reported Sunday that paperwork has been filed with the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor and Industry for them to appear on TLC specials.

"The proper steps have been taken and the kids are permitted for Kate Plus 8," the rep said. (No paperwork has been submitted for the reality mom's other show, Twist of Kate.)
