Despite reports that she still pines for Jon , Kate Gosselin says she’s looking for someone new and is about ready to get back into the dating world. “I’m kind of out-ish, sort of,” the Kate Plus 8 star said. “You never really picture yourself back in that scene after you’re done with it in your 20s.” “But I’m trying to be a little more open-minded now,” Kate added . “If there’s anybody out there that wants to deal with us, that would be good.” JON & KATE : On the same page, albeit not together . It’s not like the mother of eight, who has gone through personal and media hell and back over the last few years, hasn’t come a long way, though. “I’m encouraging the kids to enjoy their time with him,” Kate says, referring to ex-hubby Jon, who she’s a lot kinder to in public comments lately. Kate, who just celebrated her 36th birthday last week, says that when it comes to her ex, she’s “keeping communication as positive as possible.” Not exactly a convincing, heartwarming statement, but … baby steps. Speaking of Jon Gosselin, dude has probably has had a half dozen jobs in as many months, but like Kate, he’s gotta do what he’s gotta do to get by. He used to whore himself out to any mediocre girls that showed interest. Now he’s doing that for any entity that will pay him. The latest – Quiznos. Seriously, the working stiff is pushing Quiznos promos on Twitter to his (soon to be declining number of) 72,184 followers for around $500 a pop. How the mighty have fallen. Hope he also gets free subs, at least.

They fought and fought. They split and traded barbs in the press. He paraded around with a bunch of mediocre girls, then faded into relative obscurity. After all that, Kate Gosselin misses her ex, Jon. The demise of Jon and Kate’s volatile and fertile marriage was one of the more epic celebrity splits of recent years … but is there still a glimmer of hope? Jon may not care. He’s happily out of the limelight, working a 9/5 construction job and supposedly so in love with girlfriend Ellen Ross. But Kate still misses her ex. OK Magazine says as much , so it must be true, right? “Friends” say she’s lost without him, professionally and personally, struggling with her mass motherhood situation and a show floundering sans Jon Gosselin . “He was her whipping boy,” says a pal, “but also her best friend. Yes, things were very toxic between them, but there was at least some sort of camaraderie.” Maybe so. It was the kids – but also the Jon and Kate Gosselin fighting over the kids, chores, infidelities, you name it – that made Jon & Kate Plus 8 so fun. Team Kate saw Jon as a jackass. Team Jon saw Kate as a grating banshee. Team Neither wished they’d both go away but ate up the gossip just the same. Kate Plus 8 (Minus Jon) has posted disappointing numbers. The show debuted with 3.4 million viewers, which promptly declined by more than 50 percent. With a new season premiering this Sunday, April 4, the pressure’s really on. “His departure made the show less interesting to people and left a very real hole in her life,” adds the insider, noting that she misses him personally, too. “She pretends to be made of steel, but underneath, she is very sensitive.”
In a recent interview, Kate Gosselin said she will never say a bad word publicly about her ex Jon, as he will always be the father of her children. That doesn’t mean she’ll get back together with him, however. A deluge of recent celebrity gossip reports have suggested Kate and Jon Gosselin, who have been on much better terms lately, might reconcile. Not the case, says a source close to Kate. “There is absolutely no chance of a reconciliation. They remain civil for the sake of the kids, but that’s it,” said the insider. “It’s frustrating for Kate that people keep making stories up. Things are better but they have both moved on.” Jon has been dating Ellen Ross for the better part of a year and seems quite content living a normal life, working 9-to-5 installing solar panels. As for Kate, she’s single and has no qualms about it. “Kate wants nothing more than to be seen in a completely different light than Jon is viewed,” says the source. “Obviously he is the father of her children and that won’t change, but she is feeling very happy about her decisions and situation.”

Let’s be honest, Kate Gosselin is looking pretty good these days.

Kate Gosselin likes expensive haircuts . Camping? Nnnyeah not so much. On Sunday’s crossover episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC, Kate – no stranger to grating diatribes and being annoying in general – was in rare form. “I’m miserable,” Gosselin whined. “It’s killing me that people willingly do this. I just don’t get the concept. Why would you pretend to be homeless?” If she keeps up her diva-like spending , she may not have to pretend anymore. Watch her mini-meltdown on the moose-killer’s reality show here … Kate Gosselin Loses It
Kate Gosselin joined Sarah Palin on her show Temptation Yukon (AKA Sarah Palin’s Alaska ) last night, and the bleary-eyed TLC vet sent a message to the Palin family with a single stare: “This is what you want, Sarah? A reality show? I have a reality show, and I am downtrodden . I am a seething divorcee with a haircut like a circular saw. I am a sack of quilted vests. You don’t want to do this, Annie Oakley. Get out while you can. Use your optimism to fly away. Move quickly. Or I’ll crash this floatplane with all of us in it. Ahehe! Oh, let me .” Let’s review.

The angular, shag-style cut comes courtesy of celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson (who’s worked with Angelina Jolie and other stars) and colorist Jason Backe. On a side note, the tanning-salon devotee also sported a particular orange, non-seasonal skin tone. She is now the Snooki of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Gibson says of his famous client, “She loves her new look, and it’s so much fun to work with her!” With that kind of hourly rate, that’s not a huge shock.
