Kate Gosselin: 'I'm definitely ready to start dating.'

When future generations try to pinpoint the specific moment when the whole notion of “celebrity” entered an eerie post-modern period — a period in which people who were only famous for being famous managed to consistently become steadily more famous by consistently remaking themselves in their own famous image — they will probably look the summer of 2009, when Jon and Kate Gosselin suddenly transformed from a lovably harried pair of reality-show parents into a demonically everpresent pair of multimedia personalities, their messy divorce playing out in tabloids, on the internet, and on their own TV show. While Jon quickly opted to avoid the spotlight, a year of infamy followed for Kate, culminating in a performance of “Paparazzi” on Dancing With the Stars that would make Marshall McLuhan‘s head explode. But anyhow, the important thing is that, as Kate told Today this morning, she’s ready to start dating again, which is certainly good news for everyone, although representatives for the male race did not respond to EW’s calls for comment.

    • In other words…

      “my index finger is sore.”

    • Loyalty

      Oh Kate – really, you want a date?
      Some would think it’s great.
      Yet I would have to debate.

      Is to find true love – a mate?
      Or to find a way to media generate

      You can only imitate
      not like Franco’s movie about Primates

      Love yourself at any rate
      Just don’t find Jail Bait.

      • You don’t know “Jack”

        I hear the Bieber is breaking up from is squeeze – just think – date the Kate and your new fan base is included…

    • Ethan

      Ewwwww Yuk…

    • Sharlin

      Remember guys! She’s not doing this just to be a celebrity… she’s doing it because she has to “work” for her children….. uhhhhh ok.

      • KC

        I thought it was because she’s horny?

  • Tank Girl

    Quit covering her!

    • Karate Pants

      Second that!
      And to say that Jon Gosselin “quickly opted to avoid the spotlight” is just completely inaccurate. The chunky fake diamond studded db that Ed Hardy threw up on himself orchestrated a media blitz of his own shortly after their split.
      Conclusion: They’re both gross. Stop covering them.

  • Jay

    I remember how she treated Jon when they were still married. Her bitchery was highlighted on “The Soup” all the time.
    No man in his right mind would spend more than a night with her

  • KC

    She’ll never find a man who will put up with her spoiled attitude.

    • jj

      Anyone else think she’s trying to score a gig on the Bachelorette? Seriously who would want to go out with someone who is spoiled AND has a million kids? Maybe she and the Octomom can both compete for guys on the show?

  • Peggy J

    Enough already with Kate news! She’s old news! Who cares about this stubborn spoiled cry baby!

  • Summer

    A couple of years ago, E! Online put a moratorium on discussing the MTV-created media monstrosity known as Speidi. Can you guys please do the same on Kate Gosselin?

    • jj

      If only…. Meanwhile, note that E! may not talk about Speidi anymore, but no matter how we plea they refuse to stop whoring out the Kardashians. They should change the name to K!

  • Winnie50

    I used to think that she was just an overzealous Mother while watching her show, but she quickly turned into a mental case after the divorce. All I can say is that I feel sorry for those kids, because coming from those parents who are both pretty self-centered does not bode well for them in future relationships. Good luck to those kids!

  • anonymous

    Ha ! Good luck with that.

  • Edna

    Show pictures of her when pregnant or after delivery but before her surgery. If so, not only would representatives for the male race not respond, the male whale race would decline too.

  • The Dolt

    Oh, Sweet Kate, please choose me!

  • Karate Pants

    OCD Mommy Dearest seeks Sugar Daddy with Hollywood connections. Will fulfill your desires in exchange for Clorox wipes, organic beef, and a fresh new hair weave.

    • jj

      and don’t forget a camera crew!

  • theresa

    It is to bad everyone of her litter, did not get her looks, unfortunaly they look like that half breed chihuaaa john, I hope they did not get his lazy jean.

    • Alex

      “Gene.” You mentioned his pants.

  • Esox

    WOW! Kate’s ready to date!
    I think I speak for all heterosexual males when I say: “Run Away!”

    • jj

      i think you meant to say “no thank you!”

  • Elbyem

    Okay, she’s not the nicest person, but if I had that many kids swirling around me 24/7, I might be a bit crabby, too! Her problem will be finding a man who can tolerate, or better yet appreciate, her home situation. As a single parent – I wish her luck. It’s really hard.

    • You don’t know “Jack”

      swirling kids – what is this is Hurricane Kate ready to find a new mate – if you don’t want the swirling kids – it’s called birth control

  • Rockatansky

    Yeah Kate, YOU may be ready to start dating, but no real men are ready to date you. Pardon me if it sounds crude, but when would she have time to “get it on?” The minute multiple kids started popping out, any wanted sexual desire from men declined rapidly. Now, if there’s a guy out there who has eight or so kids, well, have a great Brady-Bunch life. But if she’s looking to land a Clooney-like gent, oh, poor delusional lass …!
