Ready or not, Kate Gosselin is back – and she’s bringing her Eight with her.
TLC has released the first clip from the upcoming special “Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10,” which brings the reality TV mom and her brood (minus ex-husband Jon, at least in the clips) back to the small screen for the first time in nearly three years.
And judging from the clip, Kate still isn’t having much fun.
“A lot has changed since you last have been here,” Kate tells the cameras in the clip. “It’s all still happening with or without cameras. We’ve all been though a lot. We’ve learned what’s important.
“I’m getting older, tireder, more worn out… The kids are getting older and smarter and giving me a run for my money daily and hourly and moment by moment,” she adds, as footage of her cooking breakfast for the kids runs.
The new special coincides with the tenth birthdays of the Gosselin sextuplets – three girls and three boys: Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel. Twins Cara and Mady are now 13.
In the clip, Kate reveals one of her Mommy-Dearest-inspired parenting techniques she uses to keep her oldest daughters in check.
“I got those girls cell phones and iPads – so I could take them away,” she smiles. “Yes indeedy.”
The two-part special “Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10” airs its first part on June 19, with the second part airing June 26 on TLC.
