Kate Gosselin wishes she could go back to being a regular mom.
At Ohio's second annual Cleveland Women's Show on Friday, the reality mom of eight, 34, told a crowd of mostly women, "I've lost a lot of control in my life."
She later went on, "At the beginning of all of this, you've heard me say before, I didn't want fans gawking, I didn't want people gawking, I just wanted to be myself, my family.
"I have learned, I appreciate your support, I need you, I love you, thank you."
Before exiting the stage, she also shared exercise and cooking tips with moms. But she stressed, "Moms don't just sit there cooking everyday and aren't always there to greet their kids at the school bus. Moms are as versatile as dads. If you're working you're also providing for your kids in a different way."
The evening's moment of comic relief came when a fan told Kate she wanted to offer babysitting services.
Kate shot back, "Get in line, honey!"
