She's changed diapers, snorkeled in Hawaii, danced the tango, gotten a tummy tuck -- is there anything Kate Gosselin won't do on camera? Turns out she draws the line at dating. Despite tantalizing reports that Gosselin, 35, is in talks to do a reality dating show, the famous mom's reps say it's not gonna happen. According to Gosselin's press people, the rumors about (take your pick) Kate Plus Mate...Kate Plus Date...Kate Plus Fate is just a big misunderstanding that began back in April.
"The rumors started when she was on Jimmy Kimmel Live after she was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars and the other guest was Ali (from The Bachelorette)," a rep told EOnline. "Jimmy jokingly said that Kate should be the next Bachelorette... then Kate appeared on Live with Regis & Kelly, and Kelly also said that Kate should be the next Bachelorette."
Kate's response, in case you don't recall, was no: "It's a little stronger than no. It's more like never."
Okay, so she'll "never" do The Bachelorette, and she's not developing her own dating show. But does that rule out other reality dating shows? Here's how she'd fare on some of TV's other lovefests:
Dating in the Dark -- This would be fun, since the suitors wouldn't actually know they were talking to Kate Gosselin. That is, until she tells them to stop talking with their mouths full. We bet the mother of eight can hear bad table manners.
Rock of Love...with Kate Gosselin -- Forget Bret Michaels, with his singing competitions and touch football games. We bet Kate could come up with some real challenges for the dating show contestants: like getting six first graders fed, dressed, and buckled into carseats before 9 a.m.
The Millionaire Matchmaker -- Could Patti Stanger find Kate the man of her dreams? Finding the right match for type-A overachiever Gosselin might be too much of a challenge, even for a professional. On the plus side, Stanger would probably make Kate get a new haircut.
