An official for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry confirmed to EW.com that Gosselin had filed the proper paperwork that will allow her eight children to appear in the shows, a spin-off of the original 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' series that brought the Gosselin saga into our living rooms, for better or worse.
The children aren't scheduled to appear in the other Kate Gosselin reality series, 'Twist of Kate,' however. That series, which premieres on TLC this summer, will feature the ex-Mrs. Jon travelling around the country, meeting families who face major home/life/work challenges and then attempting to "walk a mile in their shoes."
AOL spoke with Bergeron, who weighed in on 'Castle,' the current -- and arguably most-talked about -- cast of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and how he handles those pesky TMZ.com interviews.

Things for Jon Gosselin, former star of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' and shoo-in for Father of the Year, are about to get much, much worse. 'The Insider' is preparing to air an exclusive bombshell interview containing shocking revelations by Gosselin's 22-year-old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman.
A tearful Glassman reportedly breaks down during the interview and alleges she's the victim of emotional abuse at the hands of Gosselin. "He's done some really cruel things to me," she says. Additionally, Glassman complains about the negative attention that dating a reality star brings, as do accusations of being a "homewrecker." "I can't be a normal 22-year-old. I can't have friends anymore," says an emotional Glassman.

What a mess the whole Jon & Kate Plus 8 Minus 1 debacle is. Apparently, after learning that TLC was moving forward with a revamped show named Kate Plus 8, Jon demanded through his lawyers that the show cease production immediately or face criminal charges.
A letter from his attorney noted, "In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers." Keep in mind that Jon seemed fine with the kids being on the show last week, when he was still a big part of the show and was, in fact, filming an episode with the kids.
I completely agree with the top six, but they lose me with Jackass at number seven. I have never understood the appeal of filming morons doing stupid things on purpose just to be stupid. But there were some shows missing from the list completely, like Little People Big World, So You Think You Can Dance and Beauty and the Geek. Surely those shows are better than The Hills and The Real Housewives of Sesame Street, or whatever franchise they're spinning now.
Don't get me wrong, kids are cute and everybody loves multiples, but the big problem here is
Even if you've never seen a single episode of the TLC mega-hit Jon & Kate Plus 8, chances are you've been hearing a lot about it lately. Specifically, the rumors of infidelities, open marriage contracts, and staying together not for the kids, but for the cameras. One should always take tabloid stories with a grain (or a pound) of salt, but when the issues make their way onto the actual show? Perhaps there is something to them.
TLC just released a two-minute clip of the May 25 season premiere of Jon & Kate Plus 8 (video also after the jump), and, well, it's awkward, to say the least. One of the hallmarks of the show is that Jon and Kate always squeeze onto a love seat together to do their interviews. In the season premiere, however, each one is sitting alone on the couch. Gone is the playful banter; in its place is a woman who looks as though she's spending every ounce of her energy trying not to scream, and a man who just looks beaten down by life. It's not exactly the family-friendly entertainment viewers are used to.
In other news, Fox has pulled the dismally rated animated sitcom 'Sit Down, Shut Up' a week early, Lauren Graham and David E. Kelley's new pilots WON'T be picked up, and Joss Stone is set to return to 'The Tudors.'

(9PM, ABC Family) 3rd season premiere
Prom night ... it wasn't 'Carrie,' but it certainly didn't end the way Kyle hoped it would in last season's finale. He and girlfriend Amanda admitted they're in love, but then she disappeared, and Kyle's only clue was a Latnok ring left in her absence.
Tonight, the heroic, no-belly button-havin' teen awakens in a strange place and finds himself in a Latnok showdown in which Kyle learns a lot more about that group's plans for him, and just how far they've gone to carry out those plans.
Meanwhile, Kyle and Amanda weren't the only ones who survived the school dance drama, as their pals Declan, Lori, Josh and Andy are also dealing will their actions on prom night.
