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.

    Thank goodness this is done. Whoever hires her to do ANY show is out of their mind. She is self centered and egotistical... she destroyed her husband and her marriage by degrading her husband ... She needs therapy BIG TIME!!

    One common thread in the reality shows is the damage done to families after it is too late. The people who will suffer the most as they grow into adults are the innocent children. Kate needs to downsize her lifestyle and raise the kids without malice and her terrible temper. Her hatred is for Jon who got away before he was completely destroyed by her.

    This woman should not be offered anymore TV opportunities. I find it disturbing and absurd that she's making the rounds on TV to discuss her show being cancelled. I've only seen her on clip shows (like The Soup) but she strikes me as a nasty, mean-spirited shrew. That kind of behavior should not be tolerated and certainly not rewarded.

    I'm so glad this show is over. I always found her very annoying and just so full of herself.

    The only problem with the end of this show is they will find something even more disgusting to fill the void in the schedule. Dear TV Producers – You are creating crap.

    The only way I'd watch this garbage is if thgey gauranteed Kate would die at the end! (and a horrible painful death that equals the excrutiating pain she's put all of us through)

    Dipping lower than low to have such a program on TV, exposing the kids so kate can expose her annoying and disturbed self admiring WHO? Money, money, money but why should some be rewarded for such families while others are starving and the programs wouldn't turn a penny to help THEM. Ratings? What a bust!
