Kate Gosselin is a reality TV star with eight children and a famous, annoying ex-husband. She and Jon Gosselin were at the center of Jon...

They say that fame is fleeting... but it can also be mysterious.

Especially in this day and age - when stars can be made purely out of Instagram photos and scandalous Tweets - it's necessary to sometimes stop and ask:

Wait... why is that person famous again?

This can be true for those you may despise (hi, Kim Kardashian!) and also for those you admire (what power does Kate Middleton hold, exactly?).

With this in mind, we've come up with 13 pretty big celebrities whose names keep being in the news despite a lack of any discernible skill. Apparently, all it takes to strike it big is to film a sex tape and/or be a terrible mother:

Kate Gosselin has primary custody of her children with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, something he is far from pleased with given her commitment to Celebrity Apprentice.

Sources close to Jon say that Steve Neild, the bodyguard once used to protect the kids, has reportedly turned into more of a boy toy for Kate these days.

He claims Kate is falling short of her duties and dumps the kids on nannies while she tapes, while she counters that this is because he doesn't step up.

Guess it boils down to which one of the nut jobs you believe.

“Jon has the kids for a few days a week. The custody schedule changes all the time, always depending on Kate’s schedule,” a source told Radar.

“Jon drops them off at the house, and the nanny takes them at the front door. He doesn’t know if Kate is around or not, and doesn’t know her shooting schedule."

"She really keeps Jon in the dark about a lot of things," the source added, "but it’s safe to say Kate was not with them last week, because Jon is.”

But according to Team Kate, that's not what's really going on.

Kate Gosselin turns 39 years old today, meaning she defied her ex-husband Jon's wishes and refused to just f--king die already, at least for another year.

Each time you think you've heard the last of attention-starved Kate, back she comes with a vengeance. She's like an immortal vampire of a reality TV star.

In fact, she will soon be seen on two different ventures, having joined the new Celebrity Apprentice cast and signed her brood up for a TLC "catch-up" special.


Anyway, it's her birthday. So wish her a happy one if you want. Or scroll through this gallery and see where you think she ranks among the worst celeb moms:

Kate Gosselin has decided it’s time for her family to be back on TV.

Suffice it to say, an outraged Jon Gosselin doesn't see eye-to-eye.

Still fuming over the decision, saying that the eight kids are “being forced to be on TV,” Jon is losing his mind over the new TLC special that will star the brood.

It's unclear if he has any means of bringing it to a halt, however.

“Jon thinks it’s such a bad idea,” a source close to the reality star now waiting tables to pay bills says. “He thinks that kids are being forced to be on TV.”

Gosselin's issue? In order to stop paying child support for his brood, Jon signed away any rights to make decisions about their TV appearances.

Brandi Glanville and Kate Gosselin both became famous without doing a lick of work and they clearly have no intention of changing their ways now.

  • Brandi Glanville on Celebrity Apprentice
  • Kate Gosselin on Celebrity Apprentice

The somehow still relevant reality stars traded in their signature attire (form-fitting cocktail dresses for Glanville, fleece and sweats for Gosselin) for the trademark red cap and shirt of the Pie Face bakery staff while shooting season 14 of Celebrity Apprentice.

But as workers and customers at the growing NYC chain soon realized - you can put the girls in a uniform, but you can't make them work. 

One onlooker described the pair as "not really working at all" and noted that they appeared to be keeping their distance from one another. "I know my kids' names, if you want to ask that," Kate bafflingly joked to a customer.

The remark reportedly earned her a hateful glare from Brandi.

Shawn Johnson, Leeza Gibbons and Kenya Moore of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame were also on hand as the ladies compete for a place in Donald Trump's heart.

Apparently some people consider that a prize.

Reports that Kate Gosselin is having an affair with her married bodyguard Steve Neild have surfaced time and again for years, and she has always denied it.

New intel indicates that the reality star's longtime protector may be guarding Kate's body in private as well as in public, though, if you know what we mean.

We mean allegedly having sex with each other. Come on, people.

The celebrity gossip site Radar Online reported a few weeks ago that Kate and Steve were holding hands at a concert they attended together. HOT.

It was a Demi Lovato concert, because obviously. Says an insider.

"They are most definitely a couple and were NOT trying to hide it."

Ooooh. Then comes the REAL PROOF of the long-rumored tryst:

Jon Gosselin is railing against Kate Gosselin's upcoming TV special with the couple's eight kids on TLC, saying he is outraged and hopes no one watches.

Anyone not see that blistering response coming?

"I was heartbroken to learn my children are participating in yet another TV project, especially an 'update' special," the reality star told E! News.

"Even without a current TV show, they still live a very public life. They're constantly in the media; updates are given practically daily via social media."

Jon's comments come on the heels of TLC announcing a Kate Gosselin reality special to get fans "up to speed on what's changed in the family."

Kate claims the kids are really excited to have the cameras back on them; TLC last visited the famous family over two years ago at this point.

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.

Kate Gosselin is returning to TLC with her brood, the network announced. A one-hour special this summer will catch us up on Kate Plus 8 ... and Minus Jon.

"In 2007, viewers first fell in love with one of the most talked about families in reality television history," the network shared of the Gosselin family in a release.

The Pennsylvania-based duo rapidly rose to fame, raising Cara and Mady, now 13, and sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel, age 9.

The couple then dominated news with their off-screen antics, and bitter divorce in 2009. Jon & Kate Plus 8 became Kate Plus 8, then ended in 2011.

The TLC special will get Jon & Kate fans "up to speed" on what has changed since, including how the kids have grown, and Kate's "evolving life and career."

Finally, TLC plans to take a "look back" at some of the most memorable, "poignant family moments" experienced by the Gosselins through the years.

The best show in the history of television will soon return to NBC.

According to the man at the center of its table, that is.

Yes, Celebrity Apprentice is somehow still around and Donald Trump will be welcoming a new group of D-Listers at some point in 2014.

According to TMZ, the cast will include one member from The Real Housewives of Atlanta and one from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

It will also be comprised of television's worst mother and maybe it's worst journalist. Here's a look at who has been confirmed thus far:
