Kate Gosselin open to doing more TV

Make no mistake, Kate Gosselin wouldn't mind being back on TV. The reality star made that clear this morning on “Today."

Kate, whose TLC show “Kate Plus 8” ends tonight, assured Matt Lauer, "I'm sure you will see my kids again at some point.”

"If the right thing came along, I think we're still in [agreement] with it," the mom of eight said of going back on the air with her brood.

While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • We're going to guess that Kevin Hart is having a hearty laugh after his limited release film "Laugh at My Pain" opened this weekend - a hearty laugh all the way to the bank. The stand-up comedy special, with a budget of $750,000, did a rare feat for a comedy special by pulling in $2 million over the weekend after being released in 99 theaters. That's about $20,000 per theater. [L.A. Times]
  • Everyone: Maybe Madonna doesn't loathe hydrangeas as much as she said she did. We wager that you can even buy them for her now. Maybe toss their petals onto the red carpet of her next premiere. If you want to watch her stomp all over them in disgust, that is. [Madonna/YouTube]

  • Forget those dainty butterfly neck tattoos, or even those symbolic tramp stamps er, lower back decorations - Snooki has gone for the guns with a new tattoo, getting a sizeable gold crown atop a pink bow inked on her bicep. [Celebuzz]
  • George Clooney apparently doesn't mind being taken to the mat: His new girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, is a former pro wrestler. [People]
  • Lest Charlie Sheen steal all the shine with the preview of his Comedy Central roast, "Two and a Half Men" has released a new theme song, complete with Ashton Kutcher's vocal stylings. [E!]

Salma Hayek’s husband breaks his silence

Salma Hayek's husband François-Henri Pinault has spoken out regarding the financial dispute over his child with supermodel Linda Evangelista, reports People.

If you haven’t heard, Evangelista would like $46,000 a month in support for her 4-year-old son with Pinault. The French businessman also has a 3-year-old daughter with Salma Hayek.

Evangelista’s lawyer claims that Pinault has been "paying zero" toward raising little Augustin James.

'The Roast of Charlie Sheen': A preview

Comedy Central’s much-hyped “Roast of Charlie Sheen” was bound to get nasty, what with the actor's wild warlock hijinks of the past year as joke fodder.

The show was taped Saturday, but the full special won't air until next Monday. Luckily, outlets like Entertainment Weekly and The Los Angeles Times were there to cover the event. And so we present to you some of the top takedowns of the evening. Well, the more tame takedowns, anyway. We can’t repeat many of the insults from the show, but trust us, they’re bad.

Host Seth MacFarlane had more than a few zingers up his sleeve.

Meet two 'X Factor' contestants in 8 minute promo

It's 9 days and counting until "The X Factor" bows on this side of the Atlantic, and Fox has released an eight minute long promo so you don't forget that.

Over the swell of dramatic music, creator and judge Simon Cowell tells us that he "walked away from the No. 1 show in America to start a new show," and that the whole competition "is a gamble." (You don't say.)

Judge Nicole Scherzinger (aka she who replaced Cheryl Cole) interjects to add that she "actually started on a show like this over a decade ago. I went through the entire audition process...I live it and I still live it." The rest of the judges panel is unveiled in much the same way:

 Weekend reviews in 140 or less: 'Contagion'

Weekend reviews in 140 or less: 'Contagion' and 'Warrior'

The box office results and the bulk of your awesome Twitter reviews match up this week: Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" was the No. 1 movie in the country over the weekend (although Entertainment Weekly notes that's not a huge compliment, since it was also the lowest-grossing weekend of the year).

While "Warrior," an action/drama starring Tom Hardy centered around a feuding family in the world of mixed martial arts, had fair reviews, it seems not as many of you went to see it.

@MeganWrites1 did, and she seemed to agree with many of the critics: "Good movie! It was easy to relate to the characters. I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars." Time commends the film for having three "compelling" principal characters, but acknowledges that the film isn't without its flaws. The Chicago Tribune also finds the film heavy-handed and at times manipulative, but says the film's "punches" do land.

Moving on to "Contagion": Survey says a lot of you have a renewed interest and investment in washing your hands.
