We know Kate Gosselin as a mom, but she's a model now, too.

Wednesday night, the 37-year-old mother of eight walked the runway at Derek Warburton's Real Fashion, Real Runway show as part of New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Stunning in a one-shoulder white dress, Kate looked toned, tanned and confident as she did her thing on the catwalk.

Profits from the show benefited Bottomless Closet, an organization that helps disadvantaged New York women become self-sufficient and provides them with business attire. Despite this, many people took issue with Kate modeling in the show.

"We have all been in Twitter wars about Kate," Warburton told the Huffington Post.

"They were attacking us for having her in the show. I responded saying, 'Listen, we are not paying her. She is doing this out of the goodness of her heart.' What's remarkable is every time we get a nasty tweet about Kate, she writes and apologizes. She doesn't care about the haters, but she cares about us, the charity. She must have apologized to me five times for what people say about her."

The reality of working with the reality star?

"Kate is so nice, sweet and accommodating and cool," Warburton gushed.

Haters gon' hate, Kate. Keep doing your thing!
