There have been rumors that "Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin had an affair with her married bodyguard, Steve Neild, but the reality star has completely denied the accusation.
According to Radar Online, a source said that Gosselin and Neild "got careless" while they were on vacation in Mexico and that paparazzi got photos of the two of them. TLC allegedly bought the photos "so that the public can't see them." Another tabloid, In Touch Weekly, also said that that Gosselin and Neild were sharing a hotel room while the mother of eight was filming "Celebrity Apprentice" in New York earlier this year.
However, the network has denied the claims.
But apparently, the 40-year old is single again and is ready to date someone who could set a positive example for her children.
The reality star clarified to In Touch that her children are encouraging her to date, but that she hasn't found anyone yet.
"They are encouraging me more and more," she said. "I just don't have a lot of time to be out there to be searching for someone! I would love to date! And I would love for the kids to have that male role model."
As for the kind of man that she wants to date, Gosselin knows what she wants.
"He has to be comfortable with the publicity, my eight kids—and all the noise in my house!"
When asked how her relationship is with her ex-husband, Jon, Gosselin said, "I don't have one."
"I keep the peace. Some of the kids visit and some don't. That's for the best," she explained.
When asked if she thinks she'll get married again, she said, "I haven't even found anyone to date, so I'm not really qualified to answer that question."
