One reason to watch 'Kate Plus 8': Sarah Palin may be taking Kate and the eight kids camping in Alaska. Kate and Sarah, incidentally, were both named among Barbara Walters' ten most fascinating people of 2009. Palin's tv show will be airing on TLC, just like Gosselin's, so perhaps it's synergy at work.
In Touch Weekly reports:
Forget ex-husband Jon--Kate Gosselin could rename her TLC hit Sarah & Kate Plus 8! In Touch can exclusively reveal that Kate and her brood have traveled to Alaska with cameras in tow to meet up with the northern state's most famous resident, Sarah Palin. "Sarah, Kate and the kids will go camping," a source says, adding that Sarah's father, a retired science teacher, and brother, a third-grade educator, will conduct a hands-on natural history lesson for 9-year-old twins Mady and Cara, and 6-year-old sextuplets Aaden, Joel, Collin, Leah, Hannah and Alexis. A mother of a big family herself, former vice presidential candidate Sarah is thrilled about the upcoming visit. "She's excited because it will be fun and educational for the children. Sarah will even teach Kate how to avoid bears!" the insider adds.
