A Flashback on 'Kate Plus 8' -- Is Kate Gosselin Still the Same Person? (VIDEO)

A Flashback on 'Kate Plus 8' -- Is Kate Gosselin Still the Same Person?Truly, Kate Gosselin has been an odd part of our shared cultural, um, heritage for so long now that we've almost forgotten how it all began. But tonight, on 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), the producers were there to jog our memories -- with some candid footage of, well, a frankly enormous Gosselin preparing to give birth. There she is to your right, in case you needed reminding that Kate once had six children in her womb at the same time, as a result of fertility treatments.

On the newest episode, it's time to send the kids off for their first day of school -- which is the excuse for the show to delve into "nostalgic flashback" mode. "This is the day that I thought of, back when I was on bed-rest with six kids," Kate says. " ... Someday, they'll all be in school." That day is now.

It's a bittersweet moment for Kate. But viewing the flashback is also a bit distracting, as it emphasizes how different Kate looks now. Rumors have it that Ms. Gosselin has gotten breast implants and Botox -- although Kate has denied these rumors.

We're glad to see that the kids are doing well and are heading off to school. We're also a bit unnerved by the way that Ms. Gosselin sort of resembles a changed person; like she's not really the same woman at all. You can see a slideshow of Kate's changing image over the years right here. Let us know what you think about it.

dressing better??? OMG ! extremely seductive clothing with the hooker heels..very short shorts or skirt and always hooker heels, whether filming in a cow pasture or whatever. And fake nails... fake hair extensions.. tons of makeup.. she looks more like a ho than a mom.

Why would she have sagging boobs? She didn't breast feed...that comment is right up there with those who make rude comments about her "lady parts" She did not deliver those kids vaginally - they were C-section. Hence she is not "stretched" there.

Kate is so OVER. Her acting is just that. ACTING. Somebody said "oh poor Kate. A tired mom". Just remember that Jon was there doing her bidding as she barked out orders. I'll never know how he stood her as long as he did. I've had more than enough of her.

Kate still lacks fashion sense although she can afford better quality clothing. It's great that she wants to show off her new look - she *is* jogging although I'm not entirely sure that alone can achieve what she has with her body. A "closet consultation" with a stylist would be wonderful - and might even be part of a show - with Kate explaining to the stylist what she is trying to accomplish look wise. Then some folks might be less critical. Wanting to be stylish doesn't always (as we've seen) translate into actually being stylish...but she's trying. Kate's a bit too much of a taskmaster with the kids. I wish she would lighten up a bit when she is at home with them. Not waiting until the day before school to label the backpacks and lunch boxes and preparing the uniforms would save her a ton of time AND stress.

I think over time Kate has changed and has grown with her kids. I remember clearly when the babies were little how Jon was annoyed Kate had no fashion sense and didn't care. At that time she was a exhausted Mom of 8 plus Jon. As her kids styles have changed so has Kates. It seems at times she can be strick but when you have 8 kids and are shopping for back to school you can clearly see the rules help. They need constant structure which they clearly receive at home. I can't imagine all the things she did preparing for back to school. Labels on everything. She keeps a clean and tidy home and a tight ship. I notice she is dressing better the last few weeks so she also is listening to the viewers. Keep the show on, and good luck to all.

No, she's not the same person. She's become a self idulgent money hungry greedy witch. Stands around and barks orders to her kids. They are scared to death of her. Shows no affection at all. All she cares about is herself and she doesn't care about her kids at all anymore, leaving them with nannies all the time. They are becoming tantrum throwin brats. She doesn't even do any work around the house anymore. What a life. Having 8 kids and not taking care of them. going to spas, traveling, botox and boob surgery, no cooking, cleaning, etc.....
