Oh, this is not good news for Kate Gosselin’s most popular show of the moment, ‘Kate Plus 8.’ A Pennsylvania lawmaker is questioning the legality of the sextuplets’ work permits to film for the TLC show.
Rep. Thomas Murt argues state law permits children under the age of 7 to work in movies, but not on television.
This would make 35-year-old Kate Gosselin’s sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah — who turned 6 in May — ineligible for filming.
On Tuesday, Murt sent a series of letters to the state attorney general and labor secretary which questioned the legality of the work permits.
The twins, Cara and Maddy, are nine, so they would not be affected by this.
Apparently, state labor officials found that TLC should have obtained work permits for the kids for ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8′ (they didn’t), but no fines were imposed as punishment.
What a mess.
