Kate Gosselin talks dating and filming the new season of her reality show.
Kate is out promoting the new season of her reality series “Kate Plus 8”, which premiered last night, and talks life post-divorce. The reality mom says that dating just isn’t at the top of her list right now: “It’s just strange. After this many years, to just be back out there in the world? If somebody arises, that’d be great. If not, it is what it is. It’s hard to find the time, it’s hard to go on a date, and hear somebody, blah, blah, blah-ing and you’re thinking, ‘I don’t care, I don’t care! What am I making for dinner tomorrow night?’’”
Despite the nasty divorce with ex-husband Jon, she’s trying to make the best of things: “He’s working now so he has something to focus on that’s more constructive. He sees the kids. I have remained the same throughout. I want it to be peaceful, but I can only control my side of it, so I just deal with whatever he hands me and try to be positive. Generally speaking, [it] depends on the day. I guess it’s a lot about my attitude and this is what I have to deal with for the rest of my life, so might as well make the best of it.”
Kate also said that her kids truly love filming their show and if they didn’t, she’d call it off immediately: “The kids love it and every weekend that they’re home we have something planned. Every vacation, they look forward to it, and we still love it. I certainly would not be needing to coerce them into this. If they didn’t love it, we wouldn’t do it anymore, but they’re loving it, we’re having the most amazing experiences.”
