Appearing on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers Wednesday, the 36-year-old single mom opened up about her lackluster love life.
“I am lonely,” Gosselin told Dr Drew Pinsky. “I clean up the house, put kids to bed, and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person – I don’t know if I feel ready for that.”
When asked if love was on the horizon, Kate – who split with her womanizing husband Jon Gosselin in 2009 – said:
I think a lot of my friends who are being constructive say ‘Gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?’
“My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation, it probably will be the person. It will sort of prove it.”
Despite the occasional stress that (one could only imagine) parenting 8 children on your own would bring about, Gosselin (who now blogs for CouponCabin.com) said her relationship with Jon, 38, has slowly improved since their divorce.
“He basically lives his life and I live mine. It’s more peaceful,” she said. “Possibly he’s working now and so he feels like he’s living a regular life again and maybe a little happier with himself, so that boils down to peace between us. The kids are now okay going there.”
In addition to raising a brood of eight youngsters on her own and blogging for CouponCabin, Gosselin has written three books, including “Multiple Blessings” and “Eight Little Faces.”
Her latest publication, “I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family,” was released in April 2010.
