The 2010 Emmy Awards were packed full of star power–and then there was Kate Gosselin. Is anyone else wondering why, exactly, the reality TV mom and star of Kate Plus 8 was actually at the Emmy Awards, walking the red carpet as if she was on par with January Jones and Jimmy Fallon–and even participating in the Emmys opening number?
Apparently she had her reasons. “Kate has made her mind up that she’s going to be an actress and hopes her new profession will result in her finding a new man,” a friend of Gosselin’s told Popeater. And what better place to find a job and a man than the Emmys? Though she’s enjoyed a rather, uh, successful career in the reality tv world, the mom of eight is ready to take things to the next level: serious acting.
“The show she would really like to be cast in is Mad Men,” the source said. Christina Hendricks, January Jones, and…Kate Gosselin? Somehow we can’t quite picture her fitting in with the screen sirens on the Emmy-winning drama.
But it all seems to make perfect sense to her. “Kate looks at the happiness of couples who met on sets together–Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer and Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks come to mind–and believes that’s how she is going to find love again,” the source said. “She has it all planned out and won’t take no for an answer.”
There’s just one difference between Gosselin and those couples: They are actually actors. Perhaps Gosselin should focus on taking care of her plenty of children and then worry about things like fame and men.
