Happy birthday this week to Kate Gosselin, mother of eight, reality TV star of note - and one of the most controversial living native Philadelphians, ever. As she turns 37 this Wednesday (really?

And there are things we could have lived without, such as her temper tantrums and awkward turn on "Dancing with the Stars.
