kate gosselin parenting slammedAs anyone who's ever watched an episode of 'Kate Plus 8' knows, it's not easy to keep an eye on eight children. But Kate Gosselin's blind eye is getting the former reality star slammed by a child safety group.

It all happened last Thursday, when Gosselin picked up her kids after school. As she waited in the driver's seat of her minivan, her seven-year-old son Collin decided to climb under his mother's minivan, rather than climb inside. In a photo of the incident, he can be seen lying on his belly underneath the body of the car, with his head directly behind its front right wheel.

Take a look at the controversial photo after the jump.

As 'Kate Plus 8' Ends, Kate Sees More TV In Her Family's Future (VIDEO)

Kate Gosselin, 'Kate Plus 8' series finaleIt was the end of an era for Kate Gosselin as the series finale of 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC) marked the end of a crazy ride in the spotlight. Gosselin first shot to stardom alongside her husband Jon and their brood of 8 children when 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' premiered in 2007.

By 2009, the pair were on the cover of every tabloid magazine in the country, and their Season 5 premiere netted a record 9.8 million viewers.

But things changed dramatically after that, as the couple split and Jon was dropped from the show. Since then, ratings have declined steadily until TLC pulled the plug after 150 episodes.

Ashley Reaches Her Breaking Point With Kate on 'Kate Plus 8' (VIDEO)

Ashley, 'Kate Plus 8'And what cause you to leave your last place of employment? If you're Ashley from 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), that answer is pizza. Particularly, four slices of pizza.

That was just the breaking point after a stressful trip that pushed Ashley to the edges of her tolerance with boss Kate Gosselin. Gosselin was ranting because Ashley had watched a movie -- camping, right? -- while she felt like she had to do everything, and no one offered their assistance.

"That's not paid help in my opinion," Gosselin said. "I'm sorry."

Stress Rises as Kate and the Kids Go Camping on 'Kate Plus 8' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:38AM
'Kate Plus 8'While camping can be a lot of fun, it's also a lot of work. We can't even imagine trying to do it with eight young kids, no matter how many helpers you have. But that's what Kate Gosselin is doing on 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC).

When the boys start arguing over who sat where and when and then crying when one of them knocks the other over, Kate tries to stay out of it. Letting them resolve their own problems isn't a bad idea from time to time but you can only ignore loud screaming for so long before it drives you crazy.

All in all, though, it was a successful start to another outdoor adventure for the Gosselins, something we know Kate is no fan of based on her disastrous camping adventure on 'Sarah Palin's Alaska,' but it was good of her to let the kids experience the fun ... even if it may be the only time she does it (we doubt it).

Kate Gosselin, 'Kate Plus 8'Perhaps no one was more surprised to see Kate Gosselin build a door than Kate Gosselin. On 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), she and her friend Ashley decided to take on the task of constructing a door for the chickens in the barn by themselves.

After making some silly mistakes, like forgetting how gravity impacts non-secured objects, they finally managed to pull it together. With some support from her daughter, who said it may take years to finish, the door was put up and went for a test swing.

"Now I know why organic eggs are so expensive," Gosselin said. "I figured if Ashley and I could build a door, there's pretty much nothing we can't do."

'LA Ink' Canceled by TLC

TLC has canceled 'LA Ink.'Tattoos may last forever, but tattoo reality shows do not. Radar Online is reporting that 'LA Ink' has been canceled by TLC. The fourth season, currently airing, will be the the show's last hurrah.

"TLC has decided that the current season of 'LA Ink' will be its last. The network is proud of what the series has accomplished in its four seasons, following Kat Von D's journey as an artist from Miami to Los Angeles," the network told Radar in a statement.

The news comes after a messy, high-profile year for Kat Von D. She jumped into a relationship with Jesse James months after he had been through a very public cheating scandal with his ex-wife Sandra Bullock. In December, her house mysteriously burned down, killing her pet cat.

Then, in July, Von D and James called off their impending marriage and split. The timing of the break-up created an uncomfortable situation, as the network was already airing promos, and episodes, featuring her getting James' face tattooed on her rib cage.

Kate GosselinAfter TLC announced yesterday that it had canceled 'Kate Plus 8' after seven seasons, the intrepid folks at Entertainment Weekly decided to contact reality TV king Mike Fleiss, creator of 'The Bachelor,' for his insight into what star Kate Gosselin should do next.

"Kate Gosselin? Sounds like a perfect fit for 'Bachelor Pad," he told EW. "Or, 'H8R'..."

Actually, 'H8R,' The CW's newest reality series featuring celebs confronting people who claim to dislike them, sounds like a great fit. But in the meantime, we have a few more suggestions for Kate so she doesn't go the way of ex-husband Jon -- date a teenager, team up with a trashy clothing designer and constantly look like she bathed in day-old Red Bull mixed with Axe body spray.

Below, we outline three career options we think the Gosselin matriarch should consider.

Kate Gosselin and the Kids Talk About Mommy Dating on 'Kate Plus 8' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 16th 2011 4:34AM
'Kate Plus 8'With Kate Gosselin looking to start dating and the kids growing up, it might just be a blessing for the family that TLC has decided to cancel 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC). In this week's episode, Kate talked about how she's planning to approach the situation.

"I'll have to be sure they're in for the long haul before the kids even get to meet them," she said.

Not having a camera crew following her around everywhere might just help her meet a guy for the right reasons. As 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' have proven over the years, plenty of people look to find "love" in front of a camera solely for the hopes of getting famous or boosting their careers in some way.

Six years of whirlwind funfilled adventures thanks to TLC and our many many supportive & diehard fans!

Kate Plus 8We guess Kate Gosselin has been out of the dating game a little too long, since her recent attempt to flirt with a guy didn't work so well.

On this week's 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC), Kate uses the (admittedly appealing) offer of a free cupcake to woo a guy, but she apparently chose the one random bystander who likes his cupcakes gluten-free -- d'oh!

Kate Gosselin's Kids Really Want Her to Start Dating Again (VIDEO)

Kate Gosselin on 'Today'Single white female reality star with eight kids seeks perfect man to marry. If Kate Gosselin were to write a singles ad, it might look something like that. Gosselin said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) that she's ready to date again, and that her kids are perhaps even more eager to see her find a new husband than she is.

Gosselin said the kids are doing well, and we'll get to see for ourselves Monday night when 'Kate Plus 8' returns to TLC. "The kids are doing fantastic," she said. "I don't think that they could be doing any better." The only thing is, they would like to see mom married again. Unfortunately there are a few giant obstacles standing in the way of her dating life: her work schedule, the kids themselves, and her reality TV game.

"So, I don't know. I don't know where life will take me," she said. "I'm hoping that that person is out there because the kids, on a daily basis are just begging for me to get married again. They bring it up all the time and I'm like, I don't ... I'm not dating anyone."

Kate Gosselin Takes All Eight Kids Grocery Shopping on 'Kate Plus 8' (VIDEO)

Kate Gosselin, 'Kate Plus 8'Kate Gosselin declared it a hodgepodge dinner and took on the daunting task of taking all eight of her children to the grocery store with her on 'Kate Plus 8' (Wed., 10PM ET on TLC). With the sextuplets now barely in grade school, and the twins only six years older than that, we're talking a lot of wound up personalities.

To give them some direction, she gave them each a task in the store. Each child was responsible for one part of dinner: Main course, veggies, fruits, etc. Still, there was the usual bickering, boredom and clamoring for attention you get at a grocery story with young children.

The cashier told Gosselin and her kids that she hadn't seen all of them together like this since the little ones were all in strollers.
