Kate Gosselin's 4-year run on reality TV came to a close last night with the finale episode of Kate Plus 8. But, don't think for a second that this mom is going to look for a "normal" day job now. Nope, she says she belongs in front of the cameras. For the good of her children, of course.

Gosselin says she has every intention of landing another TV Reality TV Show Ideas:
  • Cooking for 8 with Kate
  • Lose Weight with Kate
  • Travels Across the St8 with Kate
gig in order to support her eight rugrats. She said during an appearance on the Today Show this week: "At this point, the best opportunity for me would be me continuing in TV as a way to provide for my kids. I’ll be back.”

Then, almost on cue, she slammed her ex-husband's new job in construction. Kate said about Jon's latest career path: "It's a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. I want the best for my kids and the best opportunities not unlike every parent. To be a good parent is to work as hard as you can and give them the best opportunities in life, and this has provided that."Jon+Gosselin in Jon Gosselin Lands in Hawaii

The drama continued off the air on Twitter when she tried to defend her Jon-bashing. "2clarify re 'mediocre' - I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!" she wrote, using as many numbers and abbreviations as humanly possible to keep her argument under 160 characters.

She added: "Not wut I ment.was reply2 jons comment re I should get a 'normal' job-wouldn't work4me $ w8kids kudos2allhardwrking parents!"

Now, we're not really sure when Jon became the practical parent, but he talked about wanting to take his kids out of the spotlight in his last interview. He had this message for Kate: "I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue."
