Kate Gosselin's marriage may be in divorce court, her clothing line sacked and her cookbook shelved. But her star power hasn't entirely eroded yet.
She's been invited by Maria Shriver to the Annual Women's Conference.
The nation's "premiere forum" for women promotes "empowerment, inspiration and education," helping them become "architects for change."
Also on the list for the October event in Sacramento, Calif.? Katie Couric, Kelly Preston, Cindy McCain, Elizabeth Edwards and Madeleine Albright.
An inspirational architect for change like Kate should fit right in.

California's first lady said it wasn't even her idea to invite the mom of eight to attend. Nor was it her husband, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's.
Maria Shriver said that the couple's teenage daughters, who are fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8, suggested she ask the TLC star to come to the event.
Also noteworthy is that the invites were sent out five months ago, before the family was regularly splashed across celebrity gossip tabloids.
Think they wish they could take a mulligan on that one now?
Hey, at least Kate Gosselin and Elizabeth Edwards can share notes on their respective home wreckers, Deanna Hummel and Rielle Hunter.
