Kate Gosselin is back for another TLC Kate Plus 8 special—and is it just us, or does she look more and more miserable and wretched each and every time?!!

This time, the single mom takes the cameras along as she celebrates (kind of) turning the big 4-0 in Mexico, with her eight kids and her best friend Deanna.

During what appears to be an utterly excruciating dinner—which Kate later professes to be “one of the most memorable nights” in a very long time (Jesus, what are her usual nights out like?!!)—she basically bitches and moans and gripes about how sick she is over everyone always asking her if she’s dating, and claims that the past five years, since she divorced Jon Gosselin, have been “the happiest of my life” (all while looking like she’s about to jump under a bus).

She later shares to camera (all while looking seriously depressed) that the night was particularly special, because she actually almost managed to forget for a while that she’s the mother of eight children.

Nice!

Well, one thing is for certain, Kate Gosselin certainly isn’t mellowing or improving with age—in fact, she morphs more and more into a robotic Stepford Wife with each and every day it appears.

Well, happy birthday Kate, we guess….

Tune into TLC tonight at 10/9 central to see Kate have the most miserable looking birthday ever time of her life south of the border with her poor long suffering best friend and her oh so lucky eight kids.

Jon Gosselin is reported to be seeking custody of one of his eight children with ex-wife Kate Gosselin.

Yes, you read that right—ONE of his eight kids.  According to US Weekly he is looking to obtain full custody of their 11 year old daughter Hannah.

Kate has always had primary custody of their kids and the reason behind his seeking custody now and of only one of them is unknown.  How bizarre is that?  What about the rest of the kids?  Imagine how that must feel knowing that Daddy wants to live with your sister.....but not you.

Jon and Kate were married between 1999 and 2009 and found fame thanks to their reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8, following their lives with their twins and sextuplets.

Following their divorce, Jon has admitted to making poor decisions leading to financial issues and is now attempting to carve a career as a DJ.  He has acknowledged that there is no co-parenting relationship with Kate who has moved on and is now dating millionaire Jeff Prescott.

Gosselin's rep has commented on his weird custody suit saying;

"Jon's priority is what is best for the kids... [He will] fight for them. Jon is currently not commenting on the situation. His focus remains on his children."

Ok—well that's cleared that up then.

Jon Gosselin was reportedly evicted from his apartment after failing to pay rent.

The ex-husband of Kate Gosselin and father of their eight children was having financial difficulties that resulted on his falling behind on payments and subsequently having to leave the home.

"It's true. The eviction happened last week. He could no longer afford the rent. He has moved out and is already in a new place in the same neighborhood," an insider told E!. "The job at the credit card company he was working for didn't pan out. The anticipated income wasn't there and the situation deteriorated."

Unfortunately Jon can't have the kids come and visit now - Kate won't allow him to come to the house so he has to figure out other ways to spend time with them.

"The saddest part of it is he now has nowhere to take the kids. He's not allowed at the house, so he was taking them to his old apartment. But the new one is too small for eight children. It's heartbreaking," another source revealed. "Jon has asked friends for help, but no one wants to lend him money because they don't see how he'd be able to pay it back."

Now would be a great time for Kate to be the bigger person and lend some support to her ex, for the sake of those poor children if nothing else!

One of Kate Gosselin’s former nannies has come out with shocking claims about the mom-of-eight. And they’re not pretty.

According to the unidentified nanny, the reality TV star has an iron grip on her household and even, allegedly, makes her staff eavesdrop on conversations her children have with their father, Kate's ex-hubby, Jon Gosselin.

The former employee spilled the beans to E! News.

“When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies: ‘You are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls’.

“We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on.

“Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, but it always felt like a façade to me.”

But that’s not why the source says she eventually quit working for 39-year-old Kate who divorced Jon in 2009.

The strict way her boss ran her household – and her rulebook – had a lot more to do with it.

“We always had to refer to the manual because it listed her pet peeves.

“You couldn’t put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot.

“You couldn’t close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home.”

 

All chores allegedly had to be completed by 9 o’clock at night.

“Even if I was halfway through dishes at 9 p.m. you had to stop,” the nanny said.

But it was the way that Kate allegedly disciplined her children – 12-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn, and 10-year-old sextuplets, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah – that troubled the nanny.

“When the boys were in trouble, they were made to go outside in their giant yard, and pull weeds,” she said.

The nanny said she eventually quit her job after allegedly seeing Kate spank her son Collin with a plastic spoon.

And, in a remarkable insight into the Gosselin household, she said the kids loved to watch reruns of Jon & Kate Plus 8, the show they made when their parents were together.

“It was their favorite thing to watch.” she said.
