Though her son Collin is in a treatment facility following years of serious behavioral issues, Kate Gosselin refuses to step out of the spotlight!
After nearly a year off the air, the reality matriarch has confirmed that she and her enormous brood will be back for another reason of TLC reality show Kate Plus 8 early next year.
"We are! Full season of Kate Plus 8 returning in January!" the 41-year-old mother of eight responded to an Instagram follower's comment that the family should return to TV. (The original post was a bizarre photo of her son Aaden in a dog crate.)
Kate's decision may come as a shock to many fans, as her son Collin, 12, is undergoing treatment in a facility two hours away from home.
Will Kate document Collin's battle on the new season? While the answer is still unclear, her son's very serious troubles have never been off-limits in the past. In August, she announced in a major magazine interview that he was getting professional help for his "special needs," and once spoke about his "social" and "educational" problems.
Kate's ex-husband Jon, 39, is sure to be furious with her move to keep the kids, especially Collin, on TV.
"Collin is just a kid, and deserves his privacy," a source told Radar about Jon's feelings. "Why would a mother want the world to be talking about her son's problems?"
