Kate Gosselin Says Her Marriage Would've Ended Despite the Show

Kate Gosselin's marriage to Jon Gosselin would have crumbled even if cameras from TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 hadn't been there to document every fight and quarrel, Kate reveals.

"I know the red flags were always there. So looking back, had you never heard the names Jon and Kate Gosselin, I'm certain that I would be in that spot now," Kate said on the talk show Katie. "It's hard because like any mom I just want the best for my kids."

Kate, 37, and Jon, 35, finalized their divorce in December 2009 after a decade of marriage and eight children.

"A lot of people try to pin reality TV and say, 'My gosh. It ended in divorce. Big surprise.' We went through a lot. The signs were always there, and obviously having eight kids in a short span of time didn't help that," Kate added. "And I'm not at all blaming my kids, I'm just saying..."

In fact, Kate says another reality show -- featuring the divorced mother of eight -- might be what she needs to restart her love life.

"It is true. After a few years in realizing my barriers to dating and all of that and loving TV and the experiences... I just feel like honestly, yes, that was my idea. I would do it [so] it could be watched by families and my children," she revealed.

"But I think that it would be fun because that would allow me to sort of meet people, have fun, show my fun side -- I do have one. I'm not always barking orders! And so to sort of do that, I do, I think it would be really fun."
