Kate Gosselin has fielded countless interview questions in her career as a reality star – but perhaps the toughest have come from viewers, who submitted nearly 9,000 inquiries about her family life and plans.

In a one-hour special Monday on TLC, Gosselin, 34, will relive memories of Jon & Kate Plus Eight and answer questions about whether she’ll get married again, where she envisions her family in 10 years, and how fame has affected her children.

The special comes as Gosselin’s TV career is in question. Locked in a contentious divorce, Kate was to continue with Kate Plus Eight focusing on her life as a single mom. After protests by Jon, the network announced it would stop airing new episodes of the show next month.
