The shiny new, semi-emotionless, Stepford Wife Kate Gosselin finds the old Kate Gosselin ‘cringeworthy.’

In tonight’s episode of Kate Plus 8, the 40-year-old watches footage of herself parenting her then-toddler sextuplets and slightly older twin girls, and gives advice to her old self—you can watch sneak peek footage right here on Popdust.

Before she became Stepford Wife Kate Gosselin, with the frozen face and a tight leash on her feelings and emotions, the old Kate Gosselin wasn’t one to hold back—just the slightest transgression could tip her over-the-edge and bring out her inner screaming harpy.

And, quite frankly, in Kate’s defense, you can hardly blame her—even though she was still married to now ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, at the time, as anyone who watched Jon & Kate Plus 8, knows, the vast majority of parenting fell firmly on her shoulders day-in-day-out.

Kate Gosselin Turns Four-Oh—Wants Y’All To Know She’s Single And VERY Happy

It’s tough enough parenting one small child pretty much on your own—so, try and times that by eight. It’s enough to make your head spin—as Kate’s did, figuratively, very regularly.

Case in point—Doorknob-gate

One of the old clips Gosselin watches is about her trying to get to the bottom of which of the kids removed a doorknob. The kids, being kids, refuse to own up to who’s responsible for the “property destruction” and as Kate’s frustration grows, so does the level of her voice.

She explains:

I am clearly fit to be tied. Ooh. My voice sounds like it is booming to Texas. And the truth is, yes I was yelling, and I’m not proud of that and I’m not excusing it, but it sounds a lot louder than in real life…. A…

B, I’m cringing because it is a knob—which I’m never going to condone property destruction, it’s very close to the tippy top of rules you just don’t break in this house.

And they already knew that was a bad thing, because they were trying to blame it on other people.

The Inquisition

In true Kate Gosselin style, the mom-of-eight was not going to just let it lie. She’s determined to uncover the culprit, busting out with the thumbscrews and waterboard, in her bid to get the truth.

Well, not really—obviously—but, the clearly frustrated mom starts firing questions at her boys. Who? Why? When? Where were you? Where were they?

However, all she receives in response is a string of lies and blame-passing—adding yet further to the harried mom’s frustration.

So, has anything changed with time?

Those boys… every day… to this day…some don’t answer…. nobody did it…he did it.. it wasn’t me.. i didn’t see anything.. i don’t know what happened… she did it.. i don’t know… wasn’t there…and that is probably in every household, and that is one of the most difficult things to handle, because now it’s not just about the property destruction….now there’s lying going on.

How does Kate figure things out?

I rarely do…unless there was an eye witness….and its exhausting.

Exhaustion and parenting go hand in hand, and it’s a shame because exhaustion makes you miss a lot of amazing memories and makes you react differently.

I’ve lived most of my life exhausted most parents would probably agree. I mean at that timeframe, or now, I don’t know how to fix that.

Sleep when you can, eat when you can, exercise when you can and make a memory when you can, but man, its just…. its a job….

Love her or loathe her, you’ve really got to feel for Kate Gosselin..... come on now.... at least a little bit?!!!

Aaaaahhh... sleep... glorious sleep.....

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.


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.

Kate Plus 8 is back on TV tonight, and there's more of the wonderful shenanigans we expect from Kate and the Gosselin clan!

There will be five consecutive specials, featuring a family trip to New England, house renovations, and the twins' 14th birthday.

Considering we have Kate on Celebrity Apprentice as well, there's a whole new respect for the way she handles having such a gigantic family and taking care of them essentially by herself.

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!

Kate Gosselin often comes across as rather harsh and brittle, but it turns out there's more to the mother of eight than meets the eye.

In a new clip from TLC's Kate Plus Eight two-part special, the single mom explains that she hides her feelings as much as possible for the sake of her children.

"It was never my intent to portray myself as superwoman," she said. "I mean, I cry behind closed doors, I struggle. But I have to remind myself, this is my one shot. You're going to mess up. Just don't give up."

Listen, the woman has eight children. It's a wonder she's not in the loony bin!
