Kate Gosselin is already the star of TLC’s “Jon & Kate Plus 8” (soon to be just “Kate Plus 8”), but does the reality star and mother of eight have her sights set on the big screen?
During Monday’s episode of her hit reality series, Kate took “any and all reasonable questions” from viewers including one about her future in the entertainment spotlight.
“I’ve done enough years on TV that I feel like it’s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” she said. “I’d love to be in a movie at some point, I’d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.”
Kate addressed if the fame had affected her eight kids – something estranged husband Jon Gosselin has said is hurting them.
“They’re not suffering from this,” she explained. “The fact that they have these different experiences they need to handle is only going to help them in life.”
Later in the episode, she explained that her motivation to do the series is her children’s future.
“I signed up for the show for the memories,” she said. “I did this so each of [the kids] could go to college and get an education.”
Kate explained that money for the children’s education is locked away.
“There is a healthy amount of money put away for the kids, and it is safe,” Kate said. “It will not be touched other than for education. The money is there, come hell or high-water.”
As for plans to marry again once she settles her divorce proceedings with Jon – that remains to be seen.
“To be honest, I don’t know,” she said when asked if she might walk down the aisle. “I really don’t want to be married again, but I don’t want to be alone. The alone-ness is really alone.”
And as for where she sees herself in ten years, Kate said she’s comfortable not knowing where her life might take her – but that she hopes the future will bring happiness.
“I do not project anymore. Do you blame me? If I had my choice, myself and my kids in 10 years will be happy, healthy…I would love my TV career thing to be successful. I’ve found my niche,” she said. “I would love not to be alone…but nobody’s ever going to buy into my mess, so I probably will be. But it’s OK, I’ll just be working hard anyway.”
