ABC's Supernanny, Jo Frost, is folding up her umbrella, letting her chauffer go, and heading back to England to start a family of her own, but not before she offers her services one last time to the mother of all mothers, Kate Gosselin.
"That woman needs my help more than any other family I've worked with in the six years I've been doing the show, and by God, I'm gonna do what I can for her," said Frost last week while on holiday.
"She's an absolute mess the way she deals with those 8 hooligans of hers. I know I can straighten her around and get her back to making the big bucks she deserves on that reality show of hers."
Supernanny, of course, is talking about the show "Kate Plus Eight" which, aside from getting a big ratings hit when she visited the set of Sarah Palin's Alaska Show, has been seeing a decline in viewership. There is, after all, only so much bitchiness an audience can take before they turn off the television and run to hug their own kids and tell them how terribly sorry they are for anything they ever did to hurt them.
Said Frost, "at least the effect the Gosselin show is having on Americans is a positive one borne out of a confused mess of parenting on Kate's part."
There has been no word from Kate's camp whether or not Supernanny's offer will be accepted, but producers of both shows say they are on board if and when the deal is struck. Everyone agrees that it would be a ratings coup. That means only one thing for Kate Gosselin, extra money to get her kids the help they need and a chance to change her hairstyle again. After all, it has been a couple of years since she's gotten a new 'do' and those weaves are not getting any cheaper.
