Gotta Watch: The end of 'Kate Plus 8'

TLC's "Kate Plus 8" may not have been as epic as, say, "M*A*S*H" or "Seinfeld," but we certainly won't forget it. The six-year-old series, which was called "Jon and Kate Plus 8" until Kate Gosselin and her husband divorced and he was fired from the show, came to an end Monday night. Today, Gotta Watch looks back at Kate's advice to "Octomom" Nadia Suleman, the Gosselin's ugly custody war and Kate's short-lived stint on "Dancing With the Stars."

Advice to 'Octomom' - If you mention Kate Gosselin and Nadia Suleman in the same sentence nowadays, it may seem like a setup to a joke. But, not so long ago, we actually asked Gosselin what advice she'd give the so-called "Octomom" when Suleman's kids were born.

Kate's dancing shoes - Kate's appearance on "Dancing With the Stars" fired up fans and critics alike, but it also stoked the 4-alarm inferno that was her custody battle with ex-husband, Jon.

He said, she said - We had a ringside seat to some of the lowest lows in Jon and Kate's shattered relationship. Here, Jon reads a private email from Kate on camera and Kate cuts short Jon's visit with the kids on their birthday.

    This Just In: The show was canceled because nobody was watching it. Nobody watched it because Kate Gosselin is an annoying, self-absorbed nobody.

    That is all.

    I hope they saved their money. The real world is much less accommodating when you have 8 kids.

    I hope the contract for that train wreck of a show included life-long therapy for those poor kids. They'll need it.

    Good riddance, Kate.

    It is finally time that her 15 minutes of fame are over! I watched very few episodes of the show but did tune in to watch the final episode. This woman is a witch with a gigantic "B". Her babysitter quit while on the RV trip from hell and her "best" friend was sick of her. All she did was complain about everything. Who goes on a whitewater rafting trip and doesn't expect or want to get wet. The final episode was a whitewashed version of their life. She portrayed everything as perfectly fine and all she was worried about was finding a job. She should have thought of that years ago!

    Just watched the clip where she talks about that other woman who threw a litter. I am floored that she clicked her fingers at one of her kids and said ( mean face a gritted teeth), "Sit!". That's how you command a dog, not a child. The woman is a witch.

    I feel sorry for the children, after watching a bit about her melt down about whether or not her "bodyguard" got his piece of pizza when they were doing the road trip thing in two huge buses. Give me a break. This woman needs to take some parenting classes or something she needs to think of her children 1st and set better examples. Please please someone make sure these children are not put under stress and tirades from her any longer. Kate grow up!! Find out what it is to work a real job, like millions of other single mom's and dad's. And please do not return to nursing I do not see one ounce of compassion in you at all.

    What's the fascination with this woman? She went against her husband's desires and through fertility treatments got pregnant with 6 babies. Then she lands herself a cushy job as a reality hostess and then we see that she's a nag of a mom, a nag of a wife, a self-absorbed woman. As for looks, there are plenty of beautiful young moms out there who don't belittle their husbands, raise nasty kids and even work outside the home.
    I am so glad another reality show as bit the dust! Now let's get rid of the tattoo babe, the pawn jerks, the housewives of all sizes and shapes and communities, and the dancers!!! Let's go back to entertainment television and live our own lives.
