The Gosselins are one of those families who were at the right place at the right time, with the right number of kids. At least, that's how we imagine Kate Gosselin landed a spot on TLC with Jon and Kate Plus 8 back in 2007, before her family affair devolved into a number of spinoffs — most recently, Kate Plus Date.
Although it's just begun, Kate Plus Date follows the blonde mother of eight as she tries to navigate the dating field, following her very messy and public divorce from ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
But did she find a boyfriend on the show or is the reality star still single in 2019? Keep reading to find out.
Does Kate Gosselin have a boyfriend? (SPOILERS!)
According to Radar Online, who's been covering every messy off-screen episode in the Gosselin saga, Kate does not find love on her Monday night TLC show, and today, is still single.
And we're guessing this development comes a) as a shock to no one, and b) exactly the way Kate wanted her show to go all along. "You have to remember," a source told podcaster Rob Shuter, "that the main reason Kate did this new show wasn't romance," adding what Kate's main reasons were: "money and getting back on TV."
In fact, it sounds like Kate would have taken a show about anything in order to pay her bills and get back in front of America's TV screens. "Had Kate been offered a travel show or a fashion show," the source continued, "we would be watching her traveling around the world or doing makeovers, but 'dating' was all that producers offered and that is why we are seeing Kate with a bunch of possible love interests."
But it wouldn't be the first time Kate lied about her dating life.
As far as we know, Kate is currently single and living her best life crossing her fingers that producers call her up for another season of a reality show that hopefully doesn't involve going on random awkward dates.
But this is also coming from the person who led us to believe that she hadn't been linked to anyone since her bitter 2009 divorce from Jon. She slammed claims that she had gone out with her married bodyguard, Steve Neild, and maintained that she "didn't date" millionaire Jeff Prescott, adding not to believe "people who sell stories" because "they are looking for publicity to benefit themselves/their business."
However, Jeff himself decided to face the media to add his side to the story that had, until then, only been told through Kate's lens. And according to him, the two dated for nearly two years and were serious enough about their relationship that Jeff even looked into buying a home close to hers in Pennsylvania.
"She can say she didn't date me, but how do you qualify that if I was supposed to be on her show as her boyfriend?" Jeff dished to Radar. The media outlet was able to corroborate Jeff's claims through emails that showed he was going to appear on her former reality show, Kate Plus 8, back in 2015.
"For her to imply I was selling stories — If I was about that, I would have signed up for the show!" he continued, adding that he broke up with Kate after living in the public eye became "too much for me."
Yikes! Could she actually be dating someone now and just saying she's single to keep throwing the public off? See for yourself when you tune into Kate Plus Date, Mondays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
