WATCH Kate Gosselin 'Getting Older, Tireder' With 8 Kids

Kate Gosselin is back.

The former reality TV star is rebooting her TV career with a two-part TLC special, "Kate Plus 8," which airs June 19. It seems that while the whole group is older, some things have remained consistent, including her kids' spunky attitudes.

"We've been through a lot," Gosselin told the camera. "We've learned what's important and I'm getting older, tireder, more worn out. The kids are getting older and smarter and [are] giving me a run for my money daily and hourly and moment by moment."

In this clip, Gosselin, 39, is shown talking about spring break with her twins, Mady and Cara, 14, and her sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel, 10. (Their dad is Gosselin's ex husband Jon, who is not featured in the special.) When Mady talks back to her mother, Gosselin confiscates her cell phone after reprimanding her.
