Grading the Gosselins: Checking in on Jon and Kate Two Months After Divorce

Kate Gosselin

While Jon Gosselin's dealing with ex-girlfriend drama and a potential legal saga, things seem pretty rosy in Kate Gosselin's world. The "Jon & Kate Plus 8" mom is scheduled to release her third book come April: "I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith and Family."

Kate Gosselin's third book about her kids is due in stores April 13.

Kate Gosselin's previous books, "Multiple Blessings" and "Eight Little Faces," scored placement on the New York Times bestseller list. The upcoming one, featuring prayers and excerpts from her journal, as well as eight individual letters to her children, is poised to do the same.

"Each day the thought crosses my mind that when they get older, my kids are going to look back and think about how they were raised," Gosselin, 34, said in a statement this month. "I know they will have a lot of questions about things that may not make sense because they were raised so unconventionally. I don't want them to grow up and wonder; I want them to know without a shadow of a doubt how much I love them and how much every sacrifice made was worth it for them."

Perhaps questions that ask why that woman talked about daddy's private parts?

Kate Gosselin's personal life appears relatively tame. She spent a night out in New York last week with her hairstylist, Ted Gibson, who told UsMagazine.com that he "didn't think" the mother of eight is ready to begin dating again. Although a new man may be a ways off, Kate Gosselin is embracing her new faux hair thanks to Gibson, a good thing considering her blond extensions are worth $7,000.

Grade: B+. Kate Gosselin has largely stayed away from scandal and splashy publicity stunts since her divorce from Jon Gosselin was finalized after 10 years of marraige. But she, like he, continues to lean on the kids for support. It might be time to focus on projects that don't involve the Gosselin gan, such as launching an affordable line of hair extensions, perhaps.

Kate Gosselin showed off her new hair in New York earlier this month.
