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.
And while "there is some relief," Kate admits of ending her six-year filming stint, “there is [also] sadness, because it's the end of an era."
In the wake of her show’s cancellation, the famous mom is also concerned for her "devastated" fans.
Kate, who rose to fame with husband Jon Gosselin on the series “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” quickly became a tabloid staple when the couple’s marriage unraveled in 2009.
And Jon Gosselin isn’t as enthusiastic as his ex about putting his kids in the limelight. “I don’t think it’s healthy for them,” he told Larry King during the divorce.
"Reality TV is not a career," Jon said in an interview with RumorFix.com. He implored Kate: "Get back to a normal life – a simple life."
Looks like Kate won’t be heeding that advice.
"Jon may [accept what's] mediocre for his kids," she said of his comments. "I want the best for my kids."
And reality TV, Kate believes, may provide “the best opportunities available" for her famous little ones.
Do you agree? Should Kate and her eight return to the small screen? And if not, what do you think she could do next?
