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.

  • 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.

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:

Kate Gosselin is shopping around a new reality show about her search for fame love, and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel already has the perfect hook for it.

Think The Bachelorette meets Deadliest Catch.

What happens when you take 12 men, have Sarah Palin shoot them with tranquilizers and release them onto an island for Kate and her kids to hunt them like wild animals, with the last victim standing forced into a lifetime of wedded bliss suffering?

The promo for Escape From Gosselin Island!

The title and premise of Kimmel's parody above are pretty much 100 percent accurate, but what would you name a Kate Gosselin reality show?

William Blankinship, a TV editor who worked on TLC's Jon and Kate Plus 8 and other family-oriented reality TV, was arrested last week on child porn charges.

Blankinship, 56, has been charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor, meaning he possessed photos and/or video of a minor engaged in sexual activity.

A subcontractor for Figure 8 Films, Blankenship edited such TLC shows as Jon and Kate Plus 8, its spinoff Kate Plus 8, 17 Kids and Counting and Table for 12.

No bond has been set for the accused; he is likely "under the authority of the U.S. Marshals" until trial, a spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Prisons said.

His employer wasted no time taking action. "Upon learning of the shocking allegations his employment was terminated," Figure 8 films said in a statement.

Fortunately, Blankinship was never in contact with the famous eight Gosselin kids, the 17 Duggar offspring or any other of TLC's stars, according to reports.

"At no time was this man ever in the field or in direct contact with any of the talent for any of our productions," the network said in its own statement.

Kate Gosselin WILL be back on TV.

The reality star and perennial contender for Worst Person in America made this abundantly clear this morning, mere hours before Kate Plus 8 airs its last episode.

Even Jon Gosselin has a clue these days and recently told Kate to get a life - as in a normal life - but she told Today's Matt Lauer that her concerns lie elsewhere.

Kate Gosselin, Body

Kate hilariously/depressingly expressed concern for her show's "devastated" fans whom she says must feel like they are losing their next-door neighbor.

While "there is some relief," she said, "there is sadness, because it's the end of an era." An era where she must now worry about her children, she says.

Regarding her ex-husband's advice to scale back, Kate countered, "Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids ... I only want the best for my kids."

More like for your ego, you grating banshee!

Kate Gosselin's days as a reality star are over.

After years of providing insight into her domestic bliss with Jon Gosselin, then the ugly demise of her relationship with Jon Gosselin, as she raised their eight children all the while, TLC has pulled the plug on her show.

R.I.P. Kate Plus 8.

Shut UP Lady

"TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8," a network rep said. "By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone."

"TLC hopes to check in with Kate Gosselin and the family periodically."

Read: Probably never, but that sounds kind of polite at least.

Sad news for Kate, but probably good news for the kids, who have been scarred for life as it is. Many times over. Besides, she'll have more free time now, which should help her efforts to start dating again. There's a silver lining.

Get ready to see more of supermom.

No, not Nadya Suleman. Gosh no. If there's anyone we'd like to see less of, it'd be her. She makes Kate Gosselin looks like the patron saint of celeb moms.

The prettier Gosselin and her brood return with new episodes of Kate Plus 8 Monday, August 8. We'll see the family's adventurous trip to Australia.

The Hot Gosselin

The mother of eight Tweeted earlier today:

"GM friends! I'm awake but didn't drag myself out to run...Yet...Will do as soon as breakfast is over! Lots2do 2day as usual! Whatcha doing?"

More importantly: Would you hit it?

Despite the objections of Jon Gosselin, Kate Plus 8 returns to the airwaves with all-new episodes beginning Monday April 4, TLC announced Tuesday.

In the hour-long season premiere, the infamous reality mom takes her eight kids on their most far-flung journey to date (one that Jon tried to halt).

Kate Gosselin and Paul Teutul

We'll get to see the famous family ring in a New Year in Sydney, Australia.

BACK IN BUSINESS: Kate is back doing what she loves.

Other highlights of their down-under adventures include playing at the beach, quality time with Australian aborigines, freezing-cold ocean encounters with sharks; another camping trip (hopefully better than her Alaskan one) and more.

It's this kind of well-rounded, worldly experience Kate defended recently as she looked to deflect criticism of her show doing more harm than good.

What do you think? Are you excited it's coming back on?
