Reality show single mom Kate Gosselin found herself in the headlines again after claims of using a nanny to spy on phone calls between her ex-husband Jon and her eight children.

Kate Gosselin, 39, demanded the eavesdropping from the nanny in what was described as a "secret babysitter rulebook" that also ordered the nanny to do landscaping, cleaning and looking after Gosselin's chickens, according to Radar Online.

"ALWAYS listen with one ear to hear what they are saying," Radar Online said Gosselin wrote in the rulebook. "You are always my eyes and ears and need to report everything you see and hear!!!"

Gosselin also ordered the nanny to curtail the number of calls each of her eight kids – a set of twins and sextuplets – received from their father.

"They may call their dad when they ask permission using the house phone only," Gosselin wrote in the book, according to Radar Online. "You do not have to grant permission if you are busy or the schedule doesn't allow it (example: dinner time, shower time, bed time, room cleaning time or homework time). Please keep a listening ear open and have them stand nearby."

Gosselin raised eyebrows in a recent return to reality television last month with an "Kate Plus 8" special as her sextuplets turned 10, saying she doesn't believe kids should get awards for just participating in games and sports, according to the International Business Times.

"Hate away, but I have a problem with parents who let their kids win, because nobody is going to let me win," Gosselin said on the special. "While I'm saying, 'do your best, work your hardest, try your hardest,' why I am then in a fun game, letting her win? The message carries over. Do your best, work your hardest, try your hardest and if I'm not trying my hardest, then I'm not being an example of what I'm saying."

She also admitted on the special that when the stress gets too great, she will go behind closed doors for a good cry.

"I'm one of many single moms out there. It's not ideal," she said.
