Fans of what is now just Kate Plus Eight on TLC are in for a real treat for the upcoming season premiere. Kate Gosselin, the divorced mom of eight–including 9-year-old twins Mady and Cara, and 6-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Joel, Collin, Leah, Hannah and Alexis–is taking her brood on a field trip to Alaska to see none other than Sarah Palin.
That’s right, the 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate, who has her own reality show beginning on TLC’s partner channel, Discovery, is hosting Kate and the kids on an Alaskan camping trip. Palin’s dad and brother, both teachers will be joining and teaching the kids some lessons on the campsite.
“[Palin is] excited because it will be fun and educational for the children,” a source told In Touch magazine. “Sarah will even teach Kate how to avoid bears!”
Think Palin will also teach Gosselin what to do when your teenage daughter gets pregnant and engaged?
