Kate Gosselin denies return to nursing

Posted: October 14, 2011

As fans wondered what Kate Gosselin will do without a reality show, an "exclusive" report is declaring she'll return to nursing.

"A friend reveals" that the Philly-born mother of sextuplets and twins "is terrified about being able to make ends meet," so she'll once again work as a labor-and-delivery nurse, according to LifeAndStyleMag.com.

"Is Kate Gosselin headed to a hospital near you?" asks MyFoxPhilly.com, the website of Fox29.

After all, Gosselin, who still lives with the kids in Wyomissing, Berks County, was a nurse at Reading Hospital as recently as 2004. Then a series of reality-show gigs came along: Jon & Kate Plus 8, then just Kate Plus 8, both on TLC. The cable network, though, seems to have backed off on running a series titled A Twist of Kate."

Apparently, though, the nursing idea is a misdiagnosis.

"No truth," Kate tweeted late Thursday night on her account, @kateplusmy8. "Renewed license when up for renewal. And that got it all going!"

She was responding to @Livin4LifeLove, who tweeted: "A friend of yours (source) said you were already going back to nursing. Rumor or lie? There was an article stating that. LOL."

Nevertheless, the Gosselin gossipers are all asking, how will she make a living if no new reality-TV deal comes along? One report even called her as an "extreme couponer," after a major shopping trip.

Gosselin also appeared on ABC's Dancing With the Stars last year.
