The mom-of-eight appeared on Dr. Drew’s self-help show on Feb. 22 and broke down while talking about her non-existent love life.
Kate Gosselin can’t fight the tears anymore. When the former reality star appeared on Dr. Drew Pinsky‘s Lifechangers, she broke down crying for the first time ever on national TV. But what did it? When Dr. Drew asked Kate about her dating life, she wept, “I’m completely alone.”
“I mean, I’m so lonely,” Kate cried. “I clean up the house, put the kids to bed and there I sit.”
Kate’s TLC show Kate Plus 8 was axed from the lineup in September and now Kate works as a blogger at Coupon Cabin.
“No. I’m too busy. I think a lot of my friends who are being constructive say ‘gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?'” Kate says. “My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation it probably will be the person. It will sort of prove it.”
But Kate isn’t looking for someone to take on her burden of eight children, she just wants companionship.
“I think a lot of people mistake that and think someone is going to come in and help you co-parent eight kids, how do you expect that?” Kate says. “I don’t. I mean, I don’t expect someone to come in and financially provide for my kids, I mean, they’re mine, that’s my job. So, just to have somebody there.”
