Kate has been on the market for two years and she claims her kiddies can’t wait for her to walk down the aisle again!

Kate Gosselin is on the prowl, but she needs help! The mom-of-eight appeared on the Today Show Aug. 8 to promote her new episode of Kate Plus 8 and she didn’t play coy about her dating life. Kate, 36, tells host Ann Curry that she’s “ready” to start dating but there are “obstacles” in her way.

“As far as love life, I’ve said it a lot of times … I’m definitely ready to start dating,” Kate reveals. “A lot of obstacles for me. I hope to just bump into somebody, but I talked to my best friend and if she could go around the country and collect suitable people … I have 8 kids, a crazy work schedule. I know there are a lot of obstacles and I am ready to start dating. It’s sort of daunting though.”

Kate and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin divorced in 2009 after 10 years of marriage. Since then Jon has had several girlfriends and now he’s in a committed relationship with Ellen Ross. Ironically, instead of the eight Gosselettes wanting their own parents to reconcile, Kate says they want her to find someone new!

“I don’t know where life will take me. I’m hoping there’s someone out there because the kids on a daily basis are just begging for me to get married again,” Kate laughs. “They bring it up all the time!”

Do you think Kate is ready to settle down again?

it’s not the “married before” thing, it’s the “psychotic-control freak-nag” thing that requires extensive counseling before inficting on another soul.

and truly, “the kids think I should” is a terrible reason to hook up with anyone. In spite of reality tv, this is NOT a disney show.

They cancelled her show because no one watched it. She is self absorbed and yes jon cheated on her ,,,but that dont make her any better of a person. I saw the show with both of them and she DID treat him like a child, she wore the PANTS in that marriage. She will stay single for the rest of her life, i dont think any man would want to deal with her.

I think Kate is to selfish and spoiled to be married again! Good luck to the man that does marry her-she is controlling and mean spirited towards her kids and would be just as so to a new man in her life! Stay single!

You (most of you ) all feel better about yourselves now that you got that little hate vent out ?

Take a deep breath kiddies , it’s over . And Kate still does not know who you are nor does she care .

Kate needs to learn to love herself a little bit first and recognize that marriage is a partnership, not a boss-subordinate relationship. She treated Jon as if he were one of the kids, and I don’t see her improving her behavior any time soon.

Go Kate! You deserve happiness as much as any of us.
I hope you have learned from your mistakes, and, I hope you will find happiness.

kate is a vile nasty woman…she’s only looking for a man so she dosent have to pay for nannys anymore.She had a great guy,,,that was JON…her husband.He did everything for her and the kids.She thanked him by treating him like a child and bossing him around,while she sat on her ass and did nothing.
This woman will never get a man who REALLY loves her like
he did.She’s a joke.
Kate will care less about this new man than she does the kids…and thats very sad.

Amen!!! Any man who has watched all her shows would be a nitwit to take on her and that bunch. She just has to introduce herself and it’s over.

im not knocking ur opinion, but regardless of what she did not did not do, who was the on that was caught cheating, surely wasnt her, yeah that shows how much he loved her..who is the one that has been in multiple relationships since the divorce, surely wasnt her… i believe that even if they hadnt had the show they would have ended up splitting up.. too much stress on that relationship from the get go with 8 kids

You obviously watched that show, that does not say much for you. However from what little I seen of it (I watched it aa couple of times for a short while) you are probably riht about her. He isn’t much either.

Kate deserves what she gets – a kick in the butt.

@chrissy did you even watch the show? Kate is a harping shrew who abused her husband. They easily could have saved their marriage if they ended the show and went into therapy. But Kate needs to be the center of attention, so the show went on the their marriage ended. In one of the early shows, Jon said “I could not be home all day with the kids”. Well, Kate made him quit his job and do the show full time and it all went downhill from there. Kate does not deserve another marriage, not until she gets loads of therapy and ends her show. Yes, lots of women have failed marriages, but not for the same reason Kate does.

And I totally agree with everyone saying Kate is lying. Her kids totally want her to get back with their dad. Unless she has completely poisoned them against him and I wouldn’t put it past her.

Honestly? It sounds like she is wanting a dating show featuring her. Proof:

A lot of obstacles for me. I hope to just bump into somebody, but I talked to my best friend and if she could go around the country and collect suitable people …

I’m surprised by how many people say Kate should not remarry because she’s already had one failed marriage! A LOT of mothers have had one failed marriage.
I think Kate has shown us that she’s stepped up to the plate and taken care of her kids since her divorce from Jon. SHE has been the responsible parent who has spent the past years being the primary caregiver AND breadwinner for her family.
I was never a Kate fan, but I can see where she’s really taken care of her children. I think she deserves a life with a partner.

tlc has stepped up to the plate..she doesn’t do a thing with those kids unless it is televised and she has massive help to take care of her kids…jon does his part, he took care of them more than she ever did ..EVER! and i highly doubt the kids ask her to get married..divorce kids always want there parents to get back together! she is full of b.s.

I don’t believe for one minute that her children are begging her to get married again! If they are begging for anything it’s probably for her to get back together with their father. I see a dating show with her in it being a MAJOR FAIL and an embarrasment to her children. She is so obnoxiuos. Listen to the publc and JUST GO AWAY!!

Excuse me but little kids have no knowledge of what marriage is about—so for a Mother to speak of bull sh@t about her kids is a very bad,stupid mother…If your kids ask you to jump off the grand canyon–Please do so…
