Kate Gosselin: I'm Lonely
But the single mom and star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 says she's too busy to consider dating
While Jon Gosselin has been spotted out with more than one woman since splitting from his wife, Kate Gosselin is not ready for romance.
“I am not yet divorced officially,” she told Larry King on CNN’s Larry King Live Tuesday when asked if she feels single.
As for attracting potential suitors, Gosselin was clear that she’s “too busy” to date. “I’m lonely, but I’m very busy,” she said stoically.
Addressing how the couple’s children – 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah) – are handling the split, Gosselin said: “They understand the process [of divorce]. They’re working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They’re doing remarkably well.”
Gosselin says that like any kids whose parents have split, her children wish she and Jon could be together, but for now, “My goal is peace and we’ve achieved that.”
Still, Gosselin acknowledged that their life isn’t always peaceful. She explained an encounter that resulted in the police being called to their home in Wernersville, Pa. “It was not this huge fight,” she said. “It was just a thing where I wanted to be there with the kids as opposed to a babysitter. And he wasn’t fond of that idea.”
Gosselin said she did not call 911, but rather made a “local, routine police call,” and that there was no violence. “I have good days and bad days,” she said. “This day was a rough day.”
The Show Must Go On
“Everyone works. Everyone has a job,” Gosselin said when asked about why she signed up for a reality show about her family. “This is the most flexible, wonderful, wonderful job for myself … The kids are just playing in front of the cameras.”
So will the entire family continue the show? Kate would not speak for Jon, who, according to reports, would like to be done filming, but said she’ll plans to keep shooting .
“Myself and the kids will continue the show,” she said. “I signed my name to a contract and I am going to do my best to make that work as long as it is healthy and safe for myself and the kids.”
Does that mean there will be another season of Jon & Kate Plus 8? “Possibly,” Gosselin said. “There could be or there could not be.”
