Star of TLC show to share her story and life lessons at Penn State Fayette
In 2007, America was welcomed into the home of John and Kate Gosselin, the parents of a set of twins and sextuplets on the popular reality show “John and Kate Plus 8.” Viewers tuned in each week to see the trials and tribulations of the larger than life family. On Nov. 3, Kate Gosselin will share her life experiences followed by a meet and greet session at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The free event is open to the public and will be held at noon in the Maggie Hardy Magerko Auditorium in the campus’ Community Center.
From 2007 to 2009, The Learning Channel (TLC) followed the lives of the Gosselins and their brood which includes twins Madelyn and Cara and sextuplets Aaden, Joel, Leah, Collin, Alexis and Hannah. Fans of the show watched the family go on exciting outings to places like California and Walt Disney World coupled with simple everyday tasks like going to the dentist and grocery shopping for a family of 10. The show offered a look at how the parents juggled their gaggle of Gosselins.
In 2009, due to the Gosselin’s marriage separation, “John and Kate Plus 8” ended and in 2010 the show was changed to “Kate Plus 8” and featured Kate Gosselin and the children. The final episode aired Sept. 12, 2011.
In addition to the reality show, the Gosselins have written several books and have shared their life story with audiences at speaking engagements across the country.
