Shine Like a Star Luncheon
Kate Gosselin achieved national and international recognition on the US reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8, in which she and her husband Jon were profiled as they raise their atypical family of sextuplets and twins.
In 2009, on an episode of the show, Jon and Kate announced that they were separating, and Kate was granted primary custody of the children. Kate’s 12 year old son, Collin, one of the sextuplets, has special needs. She has noted that while she feels alone on this journey at times, she is committed to providing him with the necessary resources and education to help him gain life, educational and social skills.
Gosselin has written three non-fiction books: Multiple Blessings, Eight Little Faces and I Just Want You To Know.
