Kate Gosselin is back – and bursting with news about her new TLC reality series, ‘Twist of Kate,’ which will place the 35-year-old newly divorced mom in unusual and unique situations, including the back of a garbage truck.

“I look forward to being dropped into the lives of interesting and unique people and families,” she wrote on her blog June 1. “I am excited to take a peek into their lives and learn why they do what they do. I’ll help where I can and learn a lot, too, I am quite sure (Kate on the back of a trash truck, anyone … amongst other beyond-uncomfortable jobs?)”

Would you want Gosselin to drop in on your life?

Don’t worry…yet.

First Gosselin will reconnect with viewers in a more familiar setting, with her children, on the network’s two-hour special ‘Kate Plus 8,’ airing this weekend, June 6.

Catch up with Kate with these videos.

“The kids were thrilled to be reunited with our beloved crew, and I am glad to have our “family job” back,” added Gosselin. “It still makes me smile to be able to enjoy unique life experiences right alongside my eight favoritest people!”

The special follows Gosselin as she travels to Discovery Cove in Orlando to celebrate the sextuplets’ sixth birthday.

.“I’m down my helper, I’m here by myself…,” she says in the preview (watch below). “It was a little nerve-wracking.”

Gosselin, who blogged from her pink iPhone – her fifth – also reported feeling satisfied with her ‘Dancing with the Stars’ performance, especially her final appearance.

“I must say that the last week I spent with my dwts cohorts was THE BEST week of the entire experience!” she said on her blog.

.“Tony and I spent more time laughing and being somewhat disruptive to other couples’ practices than we did actually practicing … Which may be why our dance was so funny to us the entire one minute and twenty-five seconds it lasted.”

Now that it’s been a year since her split with Jon, Gosselin marks the milestone like any adjusting reality TV star: She appears with her brood on the cover of the latest issue of People magazine, talking about life as a single mom and how her brood is coping without their daddy.

“In general,” the magazine reported, “Kate says, her children – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel – have weathered the storm well: “They’re just amazing, resilient, loving kids.”
