Kate Gosselin Confirms Talk Show Plans


Something to talk about: Kate Gosselin could land her own talk show.

At Thursday's Southern Women's Show in Charlotte, N.C., the mother of eight 34, confirmed online reports that she wants her own show.

"I've been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?" she said, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Usmagazine.com has confirmed that Gosselin joined Paula Deen at a pilot taping in NYC over the weekend. Comedian Julie Gold, former CBS talent Rene Syler and Lee Woodruff, wife of former ABC World News anchor Bob Woodruff, are among the other women being considered for the show.

Gosselin guest hosted three episodes of ABC's The View last week and said that it was "sort of like a career move, so I had to do it."

She also opened up to the crowd of 700 about her failed marriage.

She revealed that the last year before the breakup, she and estranged husband Jon had considered moving from Wernersville, Pa. — where they own a $1.1 million home — and building a new pad in North Carolina. But the timing was bad.

"Our kids' school and our church kept us there," she said. "It was scary to move so far away."

When a woman told Gosselin she identifies with her because she recently split with her boyfriend, Gosselin told her, "I don't think you want to talk to me about boyfriends or breaking up."

Asked what she misses about her estranged husband, she replied, "I miss Jon. The Jon that I used to know."
