Kate Gosselin dating show? Not happening
Kate Gosselin may be single and open to mingling - she told People in January that she wasn't "ruling out" finding someone new after her divorce - but that doesn't mean she's getting her own dating show.
A report in Life & Style suggests that Gosselin has been "working on a deal to do a new reality dating series on ABC," and could possibly end up as the next "Bachelorette."
It's not the first time rumors of Gosselin heading to ABC to find herself a man have emerged - “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that people have asked him about the possibility of Gosselin becoming the next "Bachelorette" as well.
“[Gosselin] said she would never do [‘The Bachelorette’], and then somebody asked me about it, and I said I don’t remember ever asking her to do the show. But I followed that up by saying, ‘From all I hear she’s actually a lovely woman and as nice as can be and I think that would be a phenomenal show,' " Harrison said.
Seacrest agreed that the idea was “genius,” adding that if ABC isn’t trying to get Kate, they should start.
But, according to Gosselin’s rep, there’s not a stitch of truth in the dating show rumors. “She doesn’t want to do a dating show; she was never going to do a dating show,” the rep said. “She’s very busy at work on her ‘Kate Plus 8’ specials and ‘Twist of Kate.’ Plus, you know, being a mom to 8 kids.

The web offers showed a vast new world in relation to relationship, that permits people through all walks of life in order to meet and earn pals and acquire back into the actual relationship arena swiftly ...dating
This woman is completely out of touch with reality...she has no concept of what it's like to be a hands-on mother to her kids. She isn't a real Mom-she only plays on one TV. She always says she is doing things "alone" but she has a slew of nannies and housekeepers ...this woman spews lie after lie about how "busy" she is. Maybe busy trying to stay in the public eye and pimping her kids out for fake hair and fake boobs....those poor kids.
Her 15 minutes was up a long time ago. Nobody watched that crap anyway.
Please listen to the public- we don't care about this women. We didn't watch John and Kate. The only people who watched that are people amused by card tricks.
PLEASE MAKE KATE GO AWAY!
I pay good money for cable Tv and am so sick of these reality shows about a drama queen with too many offsprings she doesn't know what to do! Give her the "shoe"! Come on- this is NOT entertainment! This is money hungry networks that don't deliver what they are paid for!
Change the channel or cancel your cable..........Someone must be watching or they wouldn't have the shows they have on. Like you said, they are there to make money..........
If Kate Gosselin's show was on Mtv, it would be called "Flap of Love."
She has to be pretty blown out after that many kids. Who'd date her? Plus she looks like Catherine O'Hara's long-lost sister.
Kate should go straight to the big screen. I think she would make an awesome movie star!!!!!!!!!!
She's horrible. They've been pushing her along because they have no imagination or writers to come up with something new.
From one single mother to another..GO Kate! All these man shut up!!! You weren't l eft rasing kids because loser husband can keep in there pants..John I never has fun in my 20's I was having kids....Oh I feel so sorry for him...Kate was a Saint for putting up with the whimp and loser...were his he now?? Not working, NOt taking care of the kids and living off the kids and Kate....
i wholeheartedly agree with you. People are just jealous they aren't getting the breaks kate is.Jon's a slime.
Just read something that caught my eye......Yes where are Kates parents, uncles, brothers, sisters, etc? You have never heard of them through out the show of Kate & Jon plus 8. Basically you never heard the kids say gramp or gramma. What is this world coming too, No morels and no family backgrounds. I am glad I am old enough not to see what happens 20 years down the line when these 8 kids grow up. I beleive there are some hard times coming for Kate in the years to come that she will regret some on the things she has done with her children during their young lives.
I agree she will have regrets.........I would like to meet one person that doesn't when it's all said and done, but she is doing the best she can and I admire her for that. Jon is the one that will hopefully one day really regret leaving his family. I also agree that Kate treated him bad sometimes, but that is no excuse to leave your family. You work through the problems (that is what commitment means) that you are committed to seeing this through. I think Kate knows she treated him bad at times and she regrets that. Hind sight is 20/20, but he gave up and should have stayed and gone to counseling with his wife to try to save his marriage. I really feel sorry for the kids........they are the ones to pay for all the mistakes their parents make. But like I said, we all make them, and someday all 8 kids will be making mistakes with their kids.......and on and on and on.................
SIGN ME UP!!
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP REPORTING THIS CRAP
GO KATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a single Mother of two children and if I could have a show about my children and our life I do it in a Minute.... I have to worry about bills and if I can afford braces etc. Ya her kids are suffering so, living in a million dollar house, getting excellent health coverage, braces no problem, college funds, get to have there mom home, go on awesome vacations in VIP style!!! John is a loser maybe she would of nag him if he step up to the plate and help her!! NO he goes off dating women 1/2 his age , living the single life when Kate is left with raising the kids. It is America if she wants 8 more then she can have them she did not know her husband was going to cheat and leave her and the kids.
I love you Kate and I think you are a strong and independent woman and Man can stand that!! A woman who can make it on her own and doing the best she can for her children!!!! I am jealous I wish it was me!! Her kids are so luckly to have an Awesome MOM!!! There father is a Whimp.....i am only 33 and I had kids young...cry me a river suck it up and be a man, maybe Kate would of have to wear the pants if he did!! She lost respect for him and had to take over both roles because is a whimp and a loser!!!
When is she going to finally start put being a mom ahead of her shows. I thank GOD I have the mom I have. As soon as she found out she was pregnant with 6 she saw dollar signs. If she would have stayed true to herself that would have been one thing. But when you completely change who you are and put your life ahead of your kids there's a problem.
Also she had trouble conceiving in the begining with the twins. Why not be happy with the two you have? Selfish selfish selfish. For all those that say god blessed them with these children they are wrong. The medical precedure blessed them not god. This wasn't natural!
Julie, people don't talk about other stars that are Mom's because a) they are real stars, b) they have talent and c) they don't go on TV, cry and complain about their privacy, etc every day. Kate Gosselin is a no-talent hack who's only skill is having 8 kids and treating people like crap. She is part of the dumbing down of America.
Chris Harrison is FOS. He is basically will say anything to lie about things for ABC. The show he hosts is a complete fake and he has basically denied all the things that one blogger has predicted every year. The guy is an ABC puppet and pathetic. We don't need more Kate Gosselin. We need her out of our lives. She is a pathetic human being also.
Why do people complain about this, I don't see anyone complaining about all the Hollywood star mom's. They party and travel around the world with nanny's or even better don't even bring the kids with them, yet thats ok????? Also where are all the people complaining about Sport stars who spend months on the road and then cheat and ruin the family at home????? I say let the person who is the best parent in the world and does no wrong throw the first stone. She is raising 8 kids on her own and thats alot more then most parents asking for welfare and food stamps in this country that do nothing but sit on their butts. Good for you Kate. Oh, and for those of you that say she shouldn't have had that many kids, good idea, why don't you choose which kids should have never had a chance to live........not so easy huh!!!!!
Well said Julie.........she wanted 1 more child, she had no way of knowing there would be 6........and once you find out, what can you do......decide which one of your babies to kill........I don't think so!
People make mistakes. I think she learned from them after watching herself and how she treated Jon. After everything that has happened, I give her a great deal of credit to keep putting herself out there to support her 8 Children. THey will all go to great college's, and it's not like she is raising serial killers! If you ask me she is doing a great job!
TO ALL THE MEAN, NASTY PEOPLE OUT THERE; YOUR MOTHER'S REALLY SUCKED AND DIDN'T DO A GOOD JOB!!!
who cares if she gets a show on tv, all you have to do is go to another channel!
she just wants money. It is obvious. anyway she can get it. She has the perfect life syndrome. She will never be happy and the kids are spoiled.......and she is mean...... Wheres her family anyway? She wrote them off. SHe wouldnt even let her sister in law on the show John and Kate plus 8 because she didnt want her makng any money...... She is self centered, money driven, fame seeking ordinary woman who had a couple kids. Like Hugh Hefner said, he doesnt understand how she even got on DWTS. TIME FOR HER TO JUST GO GO AWAY.......
I would date her long enough to break it off in her anal.
I watched like 5 minutes of her new show. All I can say is boring!! I feel bad for those kids but it is horrible. She is constantly looking for the extra $$$. While in Sea world she is talking about how pretty her daughter looked with the sting rays and that she should be the poster child for them, Sorry but it was much better when it was real life, real family with real problems.
I like Kate! I think you haters are people who did not watch the show regularly. Hopefully, I would have been cross with Jon. He just did not get what it took to take care of those kids. At least, he is not embarrassing his children now with all his escapes with loose women.
I feel sorry for your husband if thats the way you feel. She should be cross with john. What the heck, he was her puppet and she didnt appreciate anything he did, it was never good enough, he could never please her no matter what he did for her. SHes a control freak who has to rule and oversee everything. ONe of the people who have to be perfect at life and cant accept others for her they are. She has a MENTAL PROBLEM....SOCIAL OUTCAST, CLUTZ, ETC...
She knows deep down that no one in their right minds would watch this.
I can 't stand her. She is a nobody with no talent and was married to that fat bald headed creep.
geez! why doesn't she just go away? what's her claim to fame? she squeezed out some kids, wow.
If this woman was taking proper care of her litter of children, she wouldn't have time to date. She needs to be sewn up to ensure she doesn't breed again. I'm sick of seeing irresponsible families having kids they can't afford to raise. Her exhusband has a trust set up so the 20k child support each month yet she whines avout being a single mom that is only working to support her children. In fact she loves the attention and does things that are unnecessary to put food on the table. She could write her book from home. How much more than 20k a month does she need? Perhaps a tighter budget than she's used to, but many thrive with much less than that. She does these stupid tv bits because she loves the camera and the free stuff she gets. I guess she doesn't care that the kids are more bonded to their nanny than to their mom.
I don't blame Jon for dumping Kate. She emotionally abused him daily in front of their children. Her kids are already damaged from witnessing that. Any man who would want to date and marry the hot mess that Kate has become would have to be one heck of a hot mess as well.
how about take a whack at kate show? this thing is simply a piece of caca.....and by thing i mean kate
Let's see "Kate on a Date"
If she gets on the show, that will be the last time I ever watch The Bachelorette. Yuck! Couldn't wait for her to get off Dancing with the Stars.
if we could just fast forward until her "home movies" come out, we would all be satisfied
Who didn't predict this?
Kate has a following with martyr-moms and that is it. No one else can stand her.
The funny thing is that I can thing of a dating-style show with her that I WOULD watch.
Every date is a blind date...the guy shows up and sees that it's Kate waiting for him...then she gets $1 for every minute that the guy spends with her before he flees in horror.
They could even put Jon to work, interviewing the rattled and shaken guys afterwards.
Damn. I was really hoping to see her get effed over again!
She needs to forget about trying to be a celebrity and raise her kids. Every corner I turn, there she is trying to strike up a new TV deal. She is SO insecure with her life, it's sad. I feel sorry for her children. She's not a celebrity and in my book, will never be one. She thrives on the media attention, because that's the only time people pay attention to her. I'm about as sick of hearing about her, as I am about Gary Coleman.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! TO THE POWERS THAT BE FOR FINALLY MAKING A WISE DECISION.
I have a show for you:
Celebrity Death Match – Kate vs. Octomom
I agree a celeb death match between octomom and kate would be a great watch the fact she uses her kids for money is sickining i see why her ex-husband got out though it wouldnt be a celebrity death match neither are celebritys
Seriously. She is an attention addict. She is painful to watch no matter what show she is on. She is completely talentless and totally self absorbed. She is a legend in her own mind. A complete narcissist. Please make her go away. I have no pity for her at all.
Oh well, one less source of brain damage... TV viewers are saved.
I'm being censored...
Either because I'm saying V@G!N@, or because I'm saying cl0wn c@r.
... just sayin'....
WHY WONT THIS LADY JUST GO AWAY?!! who watches this crap? she is a nobody that someone gave a tv show to. she is not extrodinary and does nothing extrodinary. infact, she is a whinney loser. i watched 5 minutes of her new show without her husband and was like wow, this lady is a biotch who thinks people should go out of their way for her cause she is single and has to many kids to handle. disgusting TV!
TO JACKT: She is NOT hot!!! Are you blind!!?? She is the biggest BIOTCH and has eight kids that she alone decided to have what is so attractive about her?? NOTHING NEXT...
Who would date a woman with a litter?
Eight kids. Hallway, meet hot dog. Hot dog, this is hallway. I'll leave and let you two get acquainted.....
I'd date her alright – and make sure her next show is called "oops – it'll be fine – but Kate now has 9"!
After months of reading the hateful comments concerning Kate, I think it's about time I sound off. Sounds like to me that bunches of you are extremely jealous of her to continue to bash her. I didn't know Kate from Eve when the news broke about her and Jon's split. I watched her on DWTS. She and many more before her didn't know the first thing about dancing. Good for her for trying. I hope her well on ANYTHING she does because she needs to help support eight kids...EIGHT KIDS! How many of you have that kind of responsiblity.Try raising that many and see if you are smiling and pleasant all of the time! We as humans have limits and the stress of all that responsiblity can take it's toll. I chose to give her a break while also supporting her ex. Personally I hope that Jon get's himself together long enough to REALLY help in the upbringing of HIS children. I watched the new show and found her to be a great example to others raising kids. She appeared to be loving and stern when needed. All of you who "claim" you don't watch her sure do have strong opinions about her...Maybe all of you non-ugly (?) people should consider going into show business! I'm thinking of the children and wishing bad things for either parent will only hurt the kids. Good luck Kate...I'm routing for you!
Kate is a horrible person. She is living off her kids, extorting her ex-husband, and leaching off her 'fame'. There is nothing wonderful, nor graceful about that person. Jealous of her? No. Wish I could actually bring myself to her level to make that kind of money? Sure. Sadly, I have morals!
She CHOSE to have her litter. She wasn't forced to. It would be different if she was.
Besides my mom raised 3 kids BY HERSELF. No roof. No shelter. No money from dad (who left). NOTHING. She dropped out of high school at age 16 to raise us. She always wondered when the next meal would be. She juggled 3-4 jobs at once. This woman needs to drop the pity party. I was 5 (the youngest), my brother was 6, and my oldest sister was 10 when she found my stepdad and finally got some of the burden off of her shoulders.
Amen-VERY well put....
Ace..you say you watched the NEW Kate show.
But did you ever watch "Jon and Kate plus 8"? I don't think so. If you had you wouldn't be defending this shrew masquerading as a mother.
Every episode was just her berating and belittling her husband while lamenting about how hard it was to have eight kids. Never mind the fact that they had nannies, bodyguards, helping hands, etc.
If you had watched THAT show you would also know that she IS not a great mother and what you are seeing in the new show is just ACTING. She is a horrible mother. Jon is the positive, supportive parent. He is the one who comforts the kids when they're crying, compliments them on their achievements, etc.
Kate was always too busy getting her hair cut, getting free boob jobs, wrangling more free stuff out of others, or just standing on camera and yelling at everyone, but mostly Jon, and complaining.....always, always complaining about her lot in life...a lot she chose when she opted to take fertility treatments.
The woman is the closest thing on earth to pure evil...except, of course, for Sarah Palin.
How about Kate vs. Octomom in a steel cage match? Now THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!
Well I'm sure the producers would love to give her a show, unfortunately they checked into it and it turns out her fifteen minutes of fame are almost up.
Did I hear you right............a normal life with their dad? If he is leading a normal life, I am glad mine is abnormal. Plus, he couldn't support 8 kids doing anything............and he doesn't want them! To busy with all the other little girls in his life.
A Dating Show ?? Please NOOOOOOO!!!!! - just be a mom,be yourself,forget the spotlight. Best wishes but enough already.
Apparently you do...You responded
Please do not place on the list of working mothers. There's a big differences between Kate and the real working mothers. She is just jet sit and leaving the kids with nannies. The kids would be better off with their father and having a normal life than having their face all over the TV every night. Kate doesn't need a body guard the kids do!
With all the people who hate her? She definately needs one.
Kate plus 8 plus date – when is the entertainment media going to stop realizing we don't want to see this moron
on our TV anymore?
Why are people so bothered by Kate. She is no different than any mom that is in show business. She has to work. Some people like her and some don't. Just because she works does not make her a bad mom, or what does that say about a lot of moms. If you don't like her, don't watch her just like you would any show you don't like. Let her work to support her kids since obviously she is not going to get much if any help from Jon. She takes the critisizm and just keeps going because that is what she has to do to make a living. There is not one person out there that would not do the same thing if put in her shoes....or at least I hope any mom would do what she had to do to support her family. She can't make enough money being a nurse to feed and care for 8 kids. I think her kids will look back someday and realize what a great mom they had that would do anything for her kids! I wish her only the best!
I agree with Kim....I don't understand all you people saying she's soaking off her kids...The show "Jon and Kate plus Eight" was just that. Their show. It's NOT the kids money. It's the "families" money. Jon and Kate have bothe provided VERY well for them. How many families of 8 do you know of that can go on vacation every other month? Or live in a wonderful home that the kids love? They hurt for nothing, except maybe a father that lives with them. None of you out there live in either of there shoes so shut up as to Kate was mean to Jon etc....How do you know? Idiots...
It is a fact that Jon has been paying Kate nearly $22,000 per month in child support. That is over $250,000 per year. So please get your facts straight. Is a quarter of a million in yearly support enough for you? He is not a dead beat Dad by any means. Also, Kate made a half million on DWTS. So know we know her yearly income is now 3/4 of a million. But wait, Kate has 2, yes 2, new TLC shows this year. So add at least another 1/2 million if not 3/4 a million. Then add the millions in the past few years that Jon and Kate earned on "Jon and Kate Plus 8" tv show that had over 120 episodes. Plus Kate has 3 books published (all about her kids) and a contract for a fourth book. All of them are with Zondervan. Then don't forget the NUMEROUS very expensive vacations, free kitchen make-over, free landscaping, etc. from TLC. Then Jon and Kate went to churches and spoke and passed the collection plate a few years ago. They made big money for speaking less than an hour. Then thet earned big money for all the product placements. In summary, Kate is a multi-millionaire. She has earned every penny off the back of her 8 small kids. Do your kids work for you? Do your kids have work-permits to film? I don't think so. Kate doesn't HAVE TO work. Again, Kate is a multi-millionaire and Jon is not a dead beat Dad. Kate needs to stay home, down-size her lifestyle and be a mother to her kids and STOP using them for fame and fortune.
Hey Margaret...I don't have to work either (but I do)..are you going to tell me I HAVE to stay home with my kids? I am a much better mom if I am NOT with my kids 24/7! These posts are pathetic!
I think she's funny... and I am totally fine she's making money off those kids.
Any chance that we can watch her self-immolate?
Now THAT would be must see tv!
Wow the media is working real hard to keep this moron in the spotlight. Kate loves negative attention. She loves when people hate her and comment because it keeps her in the spotlight. The best thing is to completely avoid commenting and avoid watching any program on t.v. with her in it. She well finally disappear. Enoiugh said, I.m outta here.
Can someone please tell me why this lady was ever given a television show??? She is HORRIBLE! Absolutely no talent whatsoever. Basically, if she can get a tv show, pretty much anything with a heartbeat can. It really scares me when wondering what the world has come to where we allow a waste of space like this lady to have a show. Someone please take her off the air, her 15 minutes have LONG LONG LONG gone!
That's right, I forgot she was a mother seeing how she's riding her media appearances like a wild bore through a glass store, I wouldn't be suprised if she has some kind of dating show in the works.... I feel bad for her children being in the media spotlight mainly while their mother thinks she's the center of attention for viewers. why doesn't she just go back to being a mother?
.......tick........tick..........tick............tick........ your time is up Kate! FINALLY-- BYE BYE! Hope the kids can be semi normal growing up!
GOOD! Now if we could just get her off the air! The show is not John and Kate plus 8 anymore. Now the way she globetrots and spends spends spends it is not about the 8 anymore either. It is all about KATE KATE KATE and from reading this blog and others and just talking here at work we all agree AWAY WITH KATE and seriously WHO would date this insane train wreck and to think she use to be a RN??????? WOW
What a relief. Another train wreck averted.
A shrew of a woman who is a single mother of 8 on the bachelorette??? Since when does a divorced person qualify as a bachelorette or bachelor? The definition of bachelor(ette) is "a man(woman) above the age of majority who has never been married".
Whoopee – that may be the best idea yet.
Seriously – we should all be breathing a collective sigh of relief that she's not doing a dating show. It would be the train wreck of the century.
How about Kate is a show called "let's watch the kids shoot Mommy out of a cannon." Maybe she can sop up some of the gulf oil with that tragic hair.
Kate is both a retard and a partisan stooge. The real reason she will not do a dating show is the lack of men who want anything to do with her, given the way she treated Jon.
I think it's the media who has a fascination with the woman – why I don't know. I will never, ever watch anything she is in. I refused to watch DWTS until she was booted off.
Same here, Karl. I gave up the show til she was gone. And if "The Bachelorette" franchise was dumb enough to feature her, I would swear that show off permanently. I won't watch ANY show she's on, and that includes "The View". Even they panned her when she was on DWTS.
Enough stories about this woman. What has she ever done? She has 8 children...so what, my Grandmother gave birth to 10 and they never did a show about her. And my Grandma raised them, not handed them over to a nanny while she was off pretending to be some sort of star.
Darn... I'm sooooo disappointed....
I have had enough of Kate. What she needs to do is dump the nanny, housekeeper,cook,driver and what every else she has and get back to real life. I bet she don't even make her own soup anymore or clip coupons. I'm sure the kids would love to have Mom back home
There is no show because there are no men dumb enough to date her.
Apparently JackT above, would.
I, for one, am glad that she's not getting another reality show to do. Enough is enough!!!
YAH – NO SHOW, THERE IS A GOD!!!!
What is the obsession with this woman? I could see maybe if she was smoking hot, but she's not. She's not really even cougar hot, I've seen much better looking older women at bars than her. What little I've seen of her on tv is enough for me, her personality seems poor. I also think that anyone who wants to date her should have to watch the first 20 seconds of that paparazzi dance she did on dancing with the stars before being allowed to continue. That part of television has literally haunted my dreams.
They can call the show, " No Snake for Kate".
Chris Brown should host it.
Thats too funny
I can't stop laughing! Awesome one......thanks for the amazing laugh Bigbill427!!!!
Well why would she want to find someone to date when she's banging her body guard?
Watch what you say Kate Gosselin has a cult following of blood thirsty moms. Once they see these bad comments they are going to neglect their home and children to talk about what an awesome mom she is. Be afraid I know I am.
Oh no you don't!
Kate is just like any other working parent she needs to work.
As far as what went on in her household-well they both did nasty things to each other. Kate was verbal and sometimes nasty-to Jon's passive aggressive eye rolling BS. . He was her 9th child.
I don't get how any of you women can tear down another based on bits and pieces of footage and online rumor mongering.
Anyone that has watched Jon & Kate Plus 8 will know how terribly she treated her husband. What man would take that kind of treatment from his woman? Jon finally had enough. That's why they are divorced.
I agree Gail (nice name by the way). Who in the world would want to date this washed up HAS BEEN who profits from her children. Jon took alot of Sh** from her, and not to mention, she has no rhythm at all to dance-or whatever she called that on DWTS
Amen to both of you. The way she treated Jon is nothing short of verbal and emotional abuse. If the roles were reversed Jon would probably be doing PSA's and sitting in front of a congressional hearing answering questions about spousal abuse.
Who would want to date this hag?
I would! AND I'd do her in a second!!!! She's a hottie....
Who would want to marry someone who lives off her children? Some sick guy who wants fame as much as she does without thinking of what it might do to the children. I just wish this woman would go away.
Who would want to marry someone who lives off her children? Pretty sick.
I dislike Kate G......I would never watch another show that had her on it-She wrecked DWTS this year-It is all about her all the time-She is a ugly inside person and I do not think a positive parent-She exploits her kids for money- She really does not have that many fans out there-Her last book numbers show her fan base-Was it under 13,ooo copies? I think people turn into her new show because they like watching her and people in general fail and she is a joke at the water cooler the next day-
Seriously ... thank gawd she won't get another show. Isn't her 15 minutes way up already? For someone that complains about her life being so complicated and no one understanding her challengers, perhaps we can give her some advice .... stay home and raise your kids. Your celeb-wanting ego ruined your marriage, don't let it ruin your children, too, while there is still time.
thank god.. had enough of her....
