Kate Gosselin net worth: American television personality, Kate Gosselin has a net worth of $200 thousand.
Kate Gosselin is one of the famous TV personalities who claimed to fame from a reality TV show that revolved around her, her husband and their eight children, titled “Jon and Kate Plus 8”. Born as Kate Irene Kreider on March 28, 1975 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Kate used her then husband’s name for the show and gained popularity. The more amazing part is that among the eight children that Kate gave birth to, two of them were twins and the other six were sextuplets.
Kate was born to a middle class family in Pennsylvania who became a registered nurse after completing a diploma program at the Reading Hospital and Medical Center. Kate worked as a nurse in the same hospital till 2004 before she and her big family started getting featured in television. Kate and Jon Gosselin married in 1999, gave birth to twin girls first and then sextuplets in 2004. Following their birth, the family was featured in the reality show, Home Delivery.
As they earned a number of viewers and audience for their featured unique lifestyle, the family found another show titled “Jon and Kate Plus 8”. This new show earned the family not only millions of audiences but made them reality TV stars and garnered millions of dollars. Kate earned as much as $250 thousand dollars per episode when the show’s success was in peak.
Kate and Jon’s divorce in the middle of the show gave a shocking twist to the show as well as their personal and family lives. As the couple divorced in 2009, Kate continued the show as a single parent to her eight children and the show’s title was changed to Kate Plus 8.
Other than being on TV, Kate is also involved in writing as she has authored three non-fiction books till date. More recently, she appeared in another reality show, Dancing With The Stars and earned a whopping amount of $50 thousand for participating.
With her fading popularity in TV, Kate has been struggling to make her worth as high as before but the net worth has not played much role to her lifestyle as she and her eight children have been living pretty lavishing life in a multi-million dollar house in Pennsylvania. Kate has been enjoying her net worth of $200 thousand as of 2015.
