Kate Gosselin is returning to reality TV with a vengeance.

The former Jon and Kate Plus 8  star, who has taken a few years off from the spotlight following her divorce from former hubby Jon Gosselin, is making her way back to the small screen with a brand new reality project, and while Jon won’t be coming with her, all of her hostility toward him will be.

Kate reveals to Us Weekly that her kids are thrilled to be filming again, saying that when her kids found out they’d soon be back on TV they “cheered like crazy.”

Says the star, “It was like I announced that it's Christmas tomorrow.”

Despite the kids’ reported excitement about starting up a new show, a source close to the family claims that Jon doesn’t think his children should be subjected to life in the spotlight again.

“He thinks it is a really bad idea for his kids,” says the insider.

Despite Jon’s hesitance, Kate claims she’s more concerned about her ex’s erratic behavior than she is about the possible problems being on TV might cause.

When asked about a recent incident in which Jon allegedly fired a gun at a paparazzo trespassing on his property, Kate revealed, “I think that I thought what every mom would think — The safety of my kids. And I’m keeping their safety in the forefront of my mind.”

Do you think it’s a good idea for Kate to put her kids back on TV?
