Kate Gosselin took a break from her busy dancing schedule on Thursday to promote her new shows at the TLC Upfront presentation in Los Angeles where she reflected on her year, dished on her dancing weight loss and even took at turn being a RadarOnline.com reporter!
“Can you tell me what it’s like to work for RadarOnline.com?” Kate joked as she commandeered the microphone.
Kate and Jon’s lawyers were been back in court this week battling over Jon’s claims that he should have full custody of their eight children and she spoke about her feelings over his attempted legal maneuvers. “I’m just sad that they have to go through the public wringers because of all things I felt like Jon and I worked that out very peacefully and I hate that it’s come to this really.”
One of the well known perks of being a contestant on Dancing With the Stars has always been the amazing weight loss the dancers have. But not poor Kate. She’s not losing any weight. “Cause I’m eating more, I’m hungry. It stinks. They said I would lose 15 pounds and I’m like sign me up -- hasn’t happened.”
Kate spoke about what she’s learned in the last year after going through her public divorce, ending her show Jon & Kate Plus 8 and becoming a single mom.
“Wow,” Kate said as she reflected on the year. “I would like to think that I’ve become stronger and maybe a little bit wiser. I’ve definitely learned to think before I speak and to change my tone of voice a little bit and be a little more sensitive to those around me. Remembering that I have a busy life and a busy schedule and I’m tired and stressed but people around me do too.”
What do her kids think about the new stronger and wiser mom? “They say I’m the best mommy in the whole world all the time,” Kate gushed.
Kate is excited for her new show to air on TLC and for the kids to return to television to. “Twist of Kate is in response basically to the letters we’ve gotten from moms, women, men whoever they are and I get to meet them, walk a little bit in their shoes see what they do for a living, see the struggles that they face, the hurdles they over come. Get to know them, put a face to the letters which is going to be really fun.”
