TLC has announced that it will air You Ask, Kate Answers, a new hour-long Jon & Kate Plus 8 special in which Kate Gosselin will answer viewer questions, will air Monday, October 26 at 9PM ET/PT.
A promo for the special aired during Monday night's Jon & Kate Plus 8 broadcast, and some of the questions TLC teased Gosselin will answer include will you ever move, do you see yourself getting married again, where do you see yourself in 10 years, how do you feel about the attention your hair gets, and do you ever read the magazine articles about the family, among others.
TLC has received nearly 9,000 questions for Gosselin, Peoplereported Tuesday.
Last week, TLC confirmed that Jon & Kate Plus 8 will no longer be re-launched as Kate Plus 8 beginning November 2 and the reality show's last original Jon & Kate Plus 8-titled episode will now air sometime in mid to late November.
In addition, a new premiere date for the show's Kate Plus 8 rebranding has not been determined yet.
Although the public didn't learn about it until two days later, Jon Gosselin had his lawyers demand TLC "cease and desist" filming his children, which he claimed was "detrimental" to their health, on September 29.
The demand came on the same day TLC announced plans to re-launchJon & Kate Plus 8 as a Kate-focused series that would be retitled Kate Plus 8 and feature Jon on a "less regular basis" beginning November 2.
TLC immediately suspended "direct filming of the children... pending further conversations between both parents" however filming has remained halted, with Jon citing "an epiphany" for his newfound agreeance with critics' previous claims that the reality show is detrimental to his children.
TLC sued Jon for breach of contract late last week, alleging that his "cease and desist" demand was the direct result of the network refusing to release him from a contractually-negotiated exclusivity provision that was preventing him from earning "substantial sums" from other unspecified "appearances."
