TLC Pulls the Plug on 'Kate Plus 8'

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Well, the day has finally come. TLC announced Monday that they will not be renewing 'Kate Plus 8' for another season. While the show will not go on, TLC did mention that they will be checking up on the Gosselins, with periodic specials.

Mega-Mom had this to say to her Twitter followers on the matter:

"TLC canceled it. I'm sorry. We've had a great run! Six years of whirlwind fun-filled adventures. Thanks to TLC and our many, many supportive and diehard fans! While it is very sad for me and the kids (there were many tears at the breakfast table this morning!), we are we are looking forward with great anticipation to our bright future!"

"As is very typical for me, I am choosing to see the positive in this situation and I am excited to consider the many more invigorating opportunities that may come my way. "I poured my entire self into the last six years of Kate + 8 and I can't wait to have the chance to challenge myself again with future endeavors!"

"In the meantime, I hope to have more time for motivational speaking, book writing and other fun work opportunities that come my way. And maybe even some dating? We wish our fans well. And remember, this is not 'goodbye.' I prefer to say 'See you around!'

What did John Gosselin have to say, you may wonder?

”Contracts have to end at some point. I think everything had run its course and it was time to come to an end anyways
