Kate Gosselin of Kate Plus 8 has been making a lot of headlines lately. There have been rumors that her other TLC reality show, Twist of Kate, has been cancelled, more scrutiny on her parenting, and the shocking report that two of her eight children were expelled from school. But in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kate sets the record straight about what’s really going on with the children and how she and ex-husband Jon Gosselin are managing their divorce.
“Two of my children are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school,” Kate explained in the interview, adding that sextuplets Collin and Alexis are “doing the identical curriculum” as their four brothers and sisters.
But why did the 35-year-year-old single mom of eight decide to take the two children out of their Pennsylvania private school?
“The pressure was getting to them,” says Gosselin. “You have the divorce anger mixed in with that.”
According to Kate, the children will hopefully return to school with their siblings soon, telling ET, “They need some breathing time. The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.”
Kate admits that her nasty divorce from ex-husband Jon Gosselin has been difficult on all of her children, but that for the most part, they have done considerably well coping with the many changes. As for today’s holiday, Kate says that she and Jon have managed to come to an agreement.
“We have been able to work out the holiday time peacefully,” Kate said. “I will have the first half, Jon will have the second half, and we just take it year by year, holiday by holiday.”
A new Kate Plus 8 special airs this Sunday on TLC.
