Kate is still working as a blogger at, but it’s not bringing in enough dough, a source tells In fact, her bodyguard Steve Neild works for free!

Kate Gosselin, 36, has big problems on her hands. A source tells that the only reason Kate decided to host a Royal Caribbean cruise for this upcoming summer is because she’s “strapped for cash.”

“The last thing Kate wants to do is hang out with complete strangers,” a source says. “She’s doing it for a free vacation and because she needs money desperately.”

Kate’s long-running TLC reality show, Kate Plus Eight, was cancelled a few months ago, and Kate has since taken a job as a blogger. Ironically, her new job is about giving money-saving tips.

“Kate wants her own show, a talk show, but it’s just not panning out,” the source continues. “Kate doesn’t know what’s next, but she’s doing whatever she can to make money for her and the kids.”

Kate is known to take her bodyguard Steve Neild with her on trips and appearances, which led us to question how she can afford him.

“Steve works for Kate for free,” our source says. “If she ever pays him, it’s the bare minimum.”
