"E! True Hollywood Story: Kate Gosselin" Premieres February 2, 2011 @ 10:00 PM, ET/PT on E!

"Obviously, they [the Gosselin kids] are young. They don't completely understand what separation or divorce means. But as time went on, the kids would come to me personally and ask questions. 'Why is my mommy and daddy not living together? Why does mommy not have a ring on? Why does daddy have other girlfriends?'" - Stephanie Santoro, Former Gosselin Nanny, tells E!

(Los Angeles , CA , January 20, 2011) - The public image of Kate Gosselin runs the gamut from nationally adored mother to vilified tabloid target. But who is this mother of eight -really? The success of the show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" thrust her into the media spotlight and the glare only intensified when she and her husband went through a very public - and messy - divorce. As E!'s Ken Baker says, Kate is "quite simply the most famous mom in reality TV history." With exclusive insights from a former Gosselin nanny who claims to have had a romance with Jon, which Jon denied, and interviews with family, friends and neighbors, E!'s THS examines the life of Kate Gosselin - from her working class roots to her role as a one-woman TV ratings juggernaut. The E! True Hollywood Story: Kate Gosselin premieres on February 2, 2011 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT only on E!.

The Gosselin's smash reality show caused America to fall in love with the couple's eight children, but viewers also began to notice cracks in Jon and Kate's marriage. "Who is to blame for the fate of the Gosselins? Is it the Gosselins themselves? Or is it maybe this appetite of American viewers to watch a slow-motion train wreck?" asks Paul Petersen, president of A Minor Consideration, a child advocacy group. Jon's friend, Brian Sep, adds, "If my wife was bossing me around and making fun of me on national TV, I couldn't deal with it."

Eventually the couple reached a breaking point and separated. Jon was soon seen in public with other women. Former Gosselin nanny Stephanie Santoro sits down with E! and explains her connection with Jon and the toll it took, "I was looked at as the home-wrecker and what didn't make any sense to me was [that] I wasn't the first girl for him to have a relationship with."

With their divorce finalized Kate moved on with her own life and experienced first-hand the challenges of raising a child as a single parent - multiplied by eight. "Kate has more than her hands full and is not a bad person. To have kids is the easiest job to get in the world. To raise kids properly is the hardest," Eric Roberts, supporter of Natural Child Project tells E!. Polly Kahl, author of "Jon & Kate Plus Eight: Reality TV & The Selling Of The Gosselins" adds, "Kate's fans admire her for being a working mom, having a lot of kids, managing a household and basically doing it all.when it's very hard even for the average mom to do it."

From her early days growing up through present day with all of the joy and sorrow in between, the unique life of Kate Gosselin and her rise to celebrity status is explored in this brand new E! True Hollywood Story premiering February 2nd at 10:00 PM on E!.
