It's depressing but true:
Kate Gosselin and her kids are returning to television for a Kate Plus 8 special that will not include the children's father and Kate's estranged ex, Jon Gosselin.
But if you're concerned over these kids once again being placed in the spotlight, don't be. They are "extremely excited" for the opportunity... according to Kate Gosselin, that is.
Kate tells Us Weekly that the kids "cheered like crazy" when she told them of the one-time TLC episode, which will be an hour in length and catch viewers up on where this family stands.
