Gosselin kids OK'd to appear in 'Kate Plus 8' TV specials

Kate-gosselin Single mom Kate Gosselin says she did "Dancing With the Stars" to support her kids -- now the tykes will get a chance to support themselves after Pennsylvania approved the labor permits for "Kate Plus 8," a series of TLC specials that will air this summer. 

In a decision earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry said that although no permits had been pulled for "Jon & Kate Plus 8," Kate and Jon Gosselin, TLC and the show's producers wouldn't face legal action as long as 15% of gross proceeds were put into a trust fund for the kids, and proper permits were obtained for future filming.

This doesn't, mind you, have anything to do with Mom's new show, "A Twist of Kate." No kiddies on that one, just Mama Gosselin traveling the country to help others.
