On yesterday's penultimate episode of Kate Plus 8, America's favorite child exploitation expert took all her kids (plus a babysitter and her bodyguard/boyfriend) on a road trip. Fun! But then the children dared to actually eat the pizza they were given, leaving none for the salad-phobic bodyfriend, and Kate went even more ballistic than she did while camping with Sarah Palin. So crazy, in fact, that Anderson Cooper spent a segment on tonight's AC360 dissecting just how horrible a person Kate Gosselin really is.
Our long national nightmare is over. TLC has canceled Kate Gosselin reality show Kate Plus 8, though the network "hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future." (Hopefully no sooner than when the kids start getting married.) Since ex-husband Jon Gosselin now toils in blue collar obscurity, it seems we may finally rid ourselves of the cautionary tale and exponentially multiplying menace that is the Gosselin clan.
