Kate Gosselin, the ambitious Pennsylvania mother of sextuplets and two girls, more known for being polarizing and pushing her kids into reality television indentured servitude than being a “mom”, has been in major nostalgia mode lately. Kate, the mother with a propensity towards the finer things in life (and a clearly gifted marketeer and self promoter), had her show cancelled in 2009 after a weary public seemed to tire of Kate’s attention seeking antics after the suburban mom turned in all her mom jeans for a Beverly Hills nip and tuck makeover. After the show took a toll on her marriage, in a highly publicized divorce from the father of her 8 children, Jon and Kate Plus 8 saw a rapidly declining viewership. While Kate tried to carry on the reality series without Jon and simply Kate Plus 8, it proved to be unsuccessful and was cancelled after just one year.
Now Kate is admitting to reminiscing about the show that catapulted her to her overstayed 15-minutes-of-fame.
Yesterday Kate tweeted, “We are watching the St Jude’s episode… I am crying… Happy and sad tears.. Old episodes of Jon&Kate+8 warms our hearts…” and then followed it up with, “Wow. We all agreed: we miss our show&the adventures and huge opportunities to help and entertain :)others! Why am I watching and crying??!:)”
And it’s not just Kate who’s daydreaming about happier days. Jon Gosselin seems to be warming up to reconciliation too. Just last month, Jon, 35, was publicly complimenting Kate and taking most of the responsibility for the end of their marriage. He called Kate a “great mom” and apologized for his past behavior. He also said that he would get mad at Kate for failing to communicate but realized it was him that wasn’t communicating. He also told People Magazine that he has lots of regrets and feels badly that he openly dated other women soon after their divorce.
So, could this mean some sort of reconciliation for the power duo? Wonder if the pair decided that they are much stronger together than apart, and certainly much more marketable? If the thought has crossed their minds, surely they must have considered a reunion show of epic appeal.
