What reality television giveth, reality television cruelly taketh away. In honor of Kate Gosselin's 40th birthday on March 28, 2015, we're finding out what happened to the real-life TV villains you love (and love to hate) once their moment in the spotlight was over, starting with Kate herself. In 2004, the Pennsylvania nurse and her IT nerd husband welcomed sextuplets into their family, which already included twin girls, and "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was born. They pair divorced, and her show was canceled in 2011. But Kate never gave up, and fought to stay relevant and get her family back on TV. In 2014, she trotted out her two teenage daughters on the "Today" show, where she demanded that her suddenly sullen girls "Spit it out!" when they wouldn't speak. She then showed up on "Celebrity Apprentice." Finally, TLC made her dreams come true when the network greenlit a new incarnation of her show "Kate Plus 8" in early 2015.
