Her popular reality shows may be over, but Kate Gosselin still has a huge following among viewers who loved watching her eight children grow up on TV. She has more than 104,000 followers on Twitter, and she enjoys keeping them up to date on the family activities via her tweets.
In fact, Kate gets so many questions from her fans that she decided to answer a number of them on her website today. Here are some of them!
What is Kate doing now that the kids just went back to school?
It’s only been a couple of days, so the mom of eight is busy playing catch-up – “you know, working on projects I’ve fallen behind on (answering your questions, paperwork and errands!)”
What’s the most important lesson Kate has learned about life so far?
It’s hard for her to pick one, but “my main lesson that I’ve learned has to be ‘keep on keeping on.’ ” She explains that it can be tempting just to admit defeat when life deals bitter blows – such as her much-publicized divorce from ex Jon. “But every one of us has the ability to dig really deep and find that determination and resilience within us to keep on getting back up, each and every time….That alone keeps me going…and almost makes me say, ‘bring it on!’ “
Whatever happened to the Twist of Kate spinoff show that was in the works?
Kate’s contract with TLC expired before the network could decide on a concept for the show. She drops an intriguing hint: “No worries, more to come in the future.”
Which of her twin girls was born first?
“Cara is older by six minutes and she won’t let you forget it!”
How do the children handle the paparazzi?
Fortunately, photographers don’t follow the Gosselins around as much as they did when the family was a TV sensation. But they do have to watch for passersby who try to sneak a photo with their cell phones. “Secretly snapping pictures makes us feel as if paparazzi [are] present and invading our privacy too, believe it or not!” Kate says.
So if you happen to catch a glimpse of Kate, Cara, Mady, Joel, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Leah and Collin and want to capture the moment for posterity, “ALWAYS ASK FOR A PICTURE! I’LL NEVER SAY NO!”
Is there anything you’ve been dying to ask Kate? She’s just a tweet away!
