Kate Gosselin: Garbage Collector. No, that’s not the name of her new show, that’s her job title. The mother of eight whose life went from bleak to chic with the dawn of her famous reality show, who competed in a nationally televised dancing competition, will be taking what looks like a giant step backwards in her career as part of her new show. Check out the full story, with pictures and video below!

The mother of eight has had a busy time this past year. Her tumultuous break up with Jon and her stint on Dancing With The Stars certainly gave her some press coverage. Now, with the upcoming premier of her new show “A Twist of Kate,” she’ll be getting her hands dirty in a number of uncomfortable jobs.

Despite going from DWTS to her own version of “Dirty Jobs,” upbeat is the best way to describe Kate Gosselin. Garbage collector CEO Bruce J. Parker doesn’t share her optimism about the new position.

“She would have to be in shape to handle the work. She could not do it right now,” he told US Magazine. “You’re constantly moving. If you’re a helper, you’re picking up cans, moving quickly, particularly in heat and humidity and the coldness of the winter months. You have to be in peak conditioning.”

He did say the job would help her get in shape, despite her recent appearance on the physically trying DWTS.

“She’d get in great physical condition. If she worked at that job for a month or so, believe me, she would mambo like you’d never seen her before!”

The former dancing competitor says she is looking forward to her new show, and will embrace the new experiences, even if they are tough.

“I look forward to being dropped into the lives of interesting and unique people and families. … I’ll help where I can and learn a lot, too, I am quite sure… as I always say, ‘It’s better to be busy than to be bored.’ And I seem to forget what bored feels like … Does ANY working (or stay at home) single (or married!) mom out there know what it feels like to be bored? I think not … it’s not in our vocabulary!”

What do you think of the new role for Kate Gosselin? Garbage collector to start out, and then who knows what they will make her do next. Will she make it in her new show? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section!

    There is such a thing as “too much exposure”. What is the attraction here??? I will never understand.

    My aunt and uncle raised 7 children. No, they did not live in a million dollars mansion. My aunt was a stay-at-home mother while my uncle worked hard all his life to provide for his family. This is REAL life!

    Paula, were 6 of your cousins born at the same time? You can’t compare a family of 7 with no multiples to a family of 8 with 6 of them being sextuplets. Can you imagine? I am the 2nd eldest of 11. I helped my mom out a lot and so did all of the older kids in our family. I’m sure the same is true of your cousins. Kate doesn’t have that built-in help, so she hires it. And she is the only bread winner in that family. Give her a break.
