Kate Gosselin is a changed woman.
In a special episode of her TLC show, Kate Plus 8, that aired last night, June 30, she and her brood were celebrating her sextuplets’ 11th birthday.
And the 40-year-old proved to be a whole new woman as she kept her cool — even as she dealt with preteen girls having a meltdown!

The mom-of-eight treated her kids — 14-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 11-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Leah, Hannah, Collin, Joel and Aaden — and their friends to a slumber party at a hotel.
And as you can imagine — things didn’t go so smoothly, as the drama of middle school-aged kids knows no bounds.

When the group needed more cots, the girls threw a fit, but Kate remained cool as a cucumber!
“I just can’t be spending my energy on [the] meltdown of the century every time something little happens,” she said in the episode.
And even more impressively — she remained true to her word! Check out the new (and dare we say improved?) Kate in the clip below!
