Kate Gosselin admits she pushed her enormous brood to return to reality TV for the money, but notes that money is useful when you have eight mouths to feed.
She could also not care at all if you don't like her parenting.
"Hear me very clearly," the star of TLC's special Kate Plus 8: Sextuples Turn 10 said in an interview with E! in response to her oft-maligned TV return.
"If there was another way to singly support eight children, you would not know this name and I would be on an island somewhere, and so would [the children].
"You would never hear from any of us again."
Certain detractors would probably be willing to throw in on a Kickstarter campign to send her to an island somewhere ... hmm, someone get on that?
"Having said that," she adds, "this is a pretty fantastic way to feed my children, keep them in an amazing house, at an amazing school, and make memories."
