Eight kids, six rocky years on TV, and one failed marriage later, Kate Gosselin faces her off-camera future.

Ten years ago, Kate was a labor-and-delivery nurse in Reading, Pennsylvania, married to Jon, a mild-mannered network engineer. Then came twins, followed by sextuplets, and the kind of reality-TV fame (and money) that makes you a one-name celebrity. Now the cable network TLC is pulling the plug on her show Kate Plus 8 due to...

“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”

Ok so this isn’t 'The Godfather' but that quote does apply to arguably America’s most hated dad, Jon Gosselin.

For the most part, the media has been focused on Kate Gosselin and her short-lived stint on 'Dancing with The Stars', as well as, her alleged affair with her body guard and the continuous rumors of diva-sized demands. But, despite her jaded and at times bitter exterior, the public seemed to almost sympathize with her for being a single parent to eight young children with a very questionable father. In the face of such challen...

In the "after" photo, she "has the typical appearance of Dysport or Botox poorly placed in the space between ...
