Kate Gosselin being filmed for new show; her kids are “sobbing” without cameras

With the Salahis and Tiger Woods to distract us, Jon and Kate Gosselin haven’t done anything newsworthy in two whole weeks. Crazy! But that ends today, as TLC was filming Kate Gosselin Tuesday in Raleigh, North Carolina, as part of the development process for her new reality series, the network confirmed to Access Hollywood.

Tonight, Kate will be one of Barbara Walters’ “10 Most Fascinating People of 2009″–along with American Idol 8 runner-up Adam Lambert–and in the pre-taped interview, told Barbara that her eight kids “cried in the van on the way home from school the other day. They kept asking, ‘Where’s the camera crew? Where’s the camera crew? We miss them.’ And I said, ‘Our show is over.’ … Eight sobbing kids driving home from school.”

If there was ever an argument for stopping production, there it is.
