The Gosselins The Gosselins

Kate Gosselin denies that two of her children, Collin and Alexis Gosselin, were expelled from school earlier this year, saying that she chose to have them home-schooled.

"Two of my children, no, are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum, " the 35-year-old mother of eight tells Entertainment Tonight. "The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible."

Gosselin said she decided to pull the two 6-year-olds out of school when it was clear her December 2009 divorce from their father, Jon Gosselin, was affecting them.

"The pressure was getting to them," she said. "You have the divorce anger mixed in with that."
