Kate Gosselin’s “business trip” to far off Australia couldn’t have been better timed. She escaped the cold and snow gripping her Pennsylvania hometown and got in some MILF bikini time, with her brood at a posh luxury hotel.
Kate, ever the diva, flaunted her tan in a tiny white bikini poolside and appeared visibly annoyed when some of her kids disturbed her.
The Gosselin clan, along with Kate’s bodyguard Steve Neild., were staying in Brisbane, Queensland, which is in the middle of its hot summer.
Kate has become a workout fanatic since her divorce from husband Jon Gosselin of “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”

The reality show about a struggling young couple trying to raise eight children launched them into the hot glare of celebrity and their marriage imploded in 2009.
Kate has continued to star in her own show, “Kate Plus 8.” while Jon has struggled to find his place in the world, post his reality career.
While some critics have questioned the fate of her cable show, given its plunge in the ratings, Kate and her eight children are in Australia to shoot scenes for upcoming episodes of her TLC series.
She took the kids to Alaska last year in what became a controversial visit with Sarah Palin, who also has a TLC cable reality show called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”
Kate seemed annoyed when the kids interrupted her poolside lounging and she was later seen scolding them as the played near the pool.
Kate and the kids landed in Australia after Christmas and spent the New Year in Sydney Harbor, much to the ire of Jon, who wanted the kids home with him for the holiday.
He asked a Pennsylvania court to block the trip, but was denied by the judge, who ruled that the trip was work related.
“It was another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia,” a source told gossip site Radaronline.
The family is expected to visit New Zealand, Steve’s home country, before returning to Pennsylvania in mid January, according to reports.
TLC has paid for the entire trip.
