The TV producers behind hits like Ellen and The Tyra Banks Show were reportedly so dazzled by Kate’s performance on The View this week, they’re working on a new View-esque morning show hosted by none other than the mother of all reality moms — Kate Gosselin.
Telepictures, the aforementioned TV hit makers, are reportedly laying the groundwork for a show hosted by Kate Gosselin and TV cooking guru Paula Deen. Says an insider:
“They’re looking around and casting for other women to be on the show with them,” one source said. “But they want all the women to be moms.”
Kate has already indicated that she’d be down with moving over into the talk show format:
“There are no mom-centered talk shows,” she told the magazine. “I think that would be a very comfortable thing for me.”
The big question is: what about her contract with TLC? If you remember, Jon tried to sign on with another reality show — Divorced Dads Club — and TLC said ‘no way.’
If TLC lets Kate have her own talk show, they’ll definitely be hearing from Jon’s legal team for having a double standard. Of course, I don’t think TLC cares, because they’ve already made it pretty clear that they’re on Kate’s side.
