My, this took longer than expected to produce: Kate Gosselin will (finally!) get the E! True Hollywood treatment on Feb. 2. The program will feature “exclusive insight” from Gosselin’s former nanny who alleges having an affair with Jon Gosselin (which he denies), along with interviews with family, friends and neighbors. It’ll also chronicle Gosselin’s childhood and her rise to “celebrity status,” E promises. “Kate has more than her hands full and is not a bad person. To have kids is the easiest job to get in the world. To raise kids properly is the hardest,” Eric Roberts, supporter of Natural Child Project, tells E!.
Adds Polly Kahl, author of “Jon & Kate Plus Eight: Reality TV & The Selling Of The Gosselins” adds, “Kate’s fans admire her for being a working mom, having a lot of kids, managing a household and basically doing it all…when it’s very hard even for the average mom to do it.”
Meanwhile, Kate Plus 8 specials continue to run sporadically on TLC but the network has yet to announce an airdate for the next one.
