Kate Gosselin is back? I thought she was cancelled!

I thought Kate Gosselin was history -- a cancelled has-been relegated to the junk heap of reality TV "stars" -- used, abused, exploited and trashed out by the TV industry after all the ad-dollar toothpaste was squeezed out of the the tube.

But no, I was wrong, and Kate Gosselin is starting what TLC describes as another season tonight at 9.

But she is starting it amid rumors of cancellation -- what a way to fly.
