Kate has always had her heart set on hosting her own talk show — and now those dreams are becoming a reality!

Kate Gosselin has landed herself a new gig! The reality TV star has been down in the dumps with the cancellation of her long running TLC show Kate Plus 8 but a source tells HollyBaby.com that Kate has been offered the chance to fill in on the CBS show The Talk.

“Kate has been getting a lot of offers but finally one has come through that is a viable option,” our source says. “The Talk reached out to Kate and they want her to co-host for a few weeks after Kris Jenner fills in!”

The show did not renew the contracts of Holly Robinson Peete or Leah Remini for the upcoming season two which premieres on Sept. 6. Existing host Sharon Osbourne asked for two weeks off to vacation with her family and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is filling in while she’s away.

Kate took to Twitter to address the possibility and she didn’t deny the gig: “@sarahjoyce1992 in general I’ll say that when (my dream) opportunity comes a-knockin’, I’m taking it! ;)”

We’re sure Kris will do great, but Kate will definitely have a tough act to follow if she agrees to host! We’ve reached out to The Talk for comment and we’re waiting to hear back!
