Kate Gosselin admits that there are worse ways to earn a living.
But the divorced mother of eight insists that she's doing just that by allowing cameras back into her and her family's life.
"Hear me very clearly," the star of the TLC special Kate Plus 8: Sextuples Turn 10 said in an interview with E! News this week. "If there was another way to singly support eight children, you would not know this name and I would be on an island, and so would they. You would never hear from us again."
While some of her detractors would probably be willing to take up a collection for that, Kate still has plenty of fans who are rooting for her success, five years after a cheating scandal and other issues resulted in the end of her marriage to Jon Gosselin after 10 years.
