kate gosselin kids 8 Kate Gosselin's brood cleared for 'Kate Plus 8'For all of you TLC fans who were worried the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” spin-off would just be “Kate,” never fear — the eight children have been cleared for “Kate Plus 8.” There is no word on whether the children will also be appearing on the other Kate Gosselin show, “Twist of Kate.”

According to the Associated Press, “A spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry
says producers have obtained child-labor permits for Kate Gosselin’s
twins and sextuplets to appear with their mother on a series of TLC
specials, ‘Kate Plus 8.'”

The permits had to be obtained after Pennsylvania regulators concluded that the permits hsould have been in place for “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” which ended in 2009 when Jon and Kate split. No legal action was taken for the original TLC show, but the producers agreed to submit paperwork for any future shows involving the children. Department of Labor and Industry spokesman Troy Thompson said Monday, April 26 that the permits are good for six months and after that must be renewed.
