iVillage Woman of the Week: Kate Gosselin

Each week we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're loving Kate Gosselin. And not because her new wavy do was so darn cute. (Okay, that's partly why!)

Kate rubbed elbows with ABC's chattiest ladies as a guest host on The View this week. The mom of eight opened up about her personal life and how she's struggling to keep it all together. When Joy Behar pointed out that tabloid rumors of ex-hubby Jon's affairs seemed to have tipped the public opinion to her favor, Kate kept it cordial. "I'm not out to win any awards," she said diplomatically. "I'm out to be the best mother that I can possibly be."

Besides remaining above the fray when it comes to her ex, she was able to hold her own when Whoopi Goldberg gave her the smackdown for infringing on Jon's custody rights – calmly admitting that she was in the wrong.

And when the focus shifted away from Kate and onto the show's guests, she fit right in with the rest of The View's hosts. We're not alone in thinking she has a future as a chatfest host: Radaronline.com reports that she'll be teaming up with Southern belle Paula Deen for a new show called Mom Logic, which will feature advice, health and beauty tips and celebrity gossip for moms.

Final score: Kate 3, Jon 0. (Can we give him negative points??)
