Kate Gosselin 'freaking out' with 8 kids, no reality show [Poll]
Like 9.1% of the U.S. population, Kate Gosselin is looking for work. Like much of the U.S. population, Kate Gosselin is "freaking out."
Like not so very much of the U.S. population, Kate Gosselin is a single mother of eight kids with a résumé that since 2005 includes "reality TV star" and "tabloid bait," with the added portable skills of getting divorced, dancing with the stars and, well, freaking out.
And that sort of freaks us out.
Gosselin told People she is "freaking out. Big time" and wasn't ready for "Kate Plus 8" to end.
"Nobody was," she said, including her costarring twins and sextuplets. "I've never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don't know what's next."
Gosselin had said previously that she could go back to nursing after her TV run ended but has realized that won't work the way she thought it would.
"The scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn't let me continue to provide well for eight kids essentially on my own," she said. "When you think about it that way, it gets really scary."
Gosselin said she promised her kidlets she'd work her fingers to the bone to allow them to stay living where they live and going to school where they go to school.
One thing we know: She's unlikely to land a catering job with Anderson Cooper any time soon.
The final episode of "Kate Plus 8" airs next Monday.
