Kate Gosselin and her brood return for a two-hour Kate Plus 8 special next month on TLC. And judging by this exclusive preview, family life is just as hectic for the reality mom – though her tactics have become perhaps a little more devious.
“It’s all still happening, with or without cameras,” she says. “I’m getting older, tireder, more worn out. The kids are getting older and smarter and giving me a run for my money, daily and hourly and moment by moment.”
Two and a half years after the show went off the air, twin girls Cara and Mady are now 13, and the sextuplets – daughters Leah, Alexis and Hannah, and sons Aaden, Collin and Joel – just turned 10 on May 10.
Organizing the clan seems to still be a full-time job, while discipline has become even more of a challenge. One trick Gosselin, 39, has picked up is to use technology to get her teen girls to behave. Watch how she does it in the clip above.
“I’ve learned I’m not the only parent of teens who has discovered that little gem,” she says.
The Kate Plus 8 special airs June 19 and 26 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
