Kate Plus 8 Season 5 Episode 6 Recap: Sweet Sixteen

by at .

A Sweet Sixteen is a time to have a great time, not for drama. 

Well, in this instance the drama appeared to surround the planning of the party because Kate Gosselin left all of the planning to Cara and Mady. 

Kate Gosselin Losing Her S--t

We kicked things off with Kate showing both of her daughters how to drive. To do this, she set some cones along the driveway to prevent them from knocking her house down. 

Mady screwed up and shattered Kate's beautiful plants, but Cara performed a little better. However, it was clear the pair had a long way to go before they could ever hit the road. 

The two kids then went through Pinterest with Kate to find some party ideas, but the kids were not impressed with any of Kate's ideas. 

“The requirements for their birthday was that if they had it, they had to do it their way,” Kate said.

Mady decided to go with the them of "Fall." It was clear she had some big ideas for the party, so she was all too happy to plan the whole thing. 

When she tried to involve Cara, Cara made it clear she did not care for the planning process. In fact, she did not even like parties.

The person who was responsible for orchestrating the party was Kate, apparently. It makes sense. Maybe she does not want her reality show to feature her sitting about the house being boring. 

As the planning continued, Kate started getting salmon burgers ready. Yeah, half of the kids probably did not eat at the party. There is such a thing as going too far and Kate Gosselin definitely went there. 

Kate then felt the need to let the world know she did not have a nanny, or any help for that matter. 

"Contrary to belief, I don’t have help. I don’t have a nanny. I don’t have a housekeeper. I have me,” the single-mom of 8 revealed.

At the last minute, Kate was forced to change the party venue due to the weather. 

When the party kicked off, Kate seemed to think all of the stress was worth it. She got to witness her children have the time of their lives. 

Yeah, but not all of them were invited to the actual party. Instead, the other children were treated with an ice cream truck. 

That kind of makes up for it, we guess.

As you probably expected, Jon Gosselin was nowhere in sight. Whether this was a result of the cameras rolling, or him just being the worst father ever, we will probably never know. 

What did you think of all the drama?
