Kate Gosselin’srelationship with her married bodyguard Steve Neild continues to remain under scrutiny following the latest photos that show the two on vacation in Mexico.
The rumors of an affair between the Kate Plus 8 mom and her bodyguard started last year when Kate’s ex-husband,Jon Gosselin, voiced his suspicions. And despite multiple denials from both Kate and Steve, UsWeekly reported just last month that a witness observed the two taking long, nightly walks on the beach during an August vacation. “They looked at each other like they were an item,” the witness told US.
The magazine also reported that Kate, 35, was glued to Steve’s side during an Emmy awards after party two weeks ago. As for the official reason Kate is alone on vacation with her bodyguard, a TLC rep tells UsMagazine that “Kate is traveling on official business.” The kids were also photographed yesterday with Jon and his new girlfriend Ellen Ross.

With reports that the ratings of her TLC show, Kate Plus 8, is taking a plunge, it seems Kate Gosselin is desperate to be in the headlines once again.
During her Friday appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly, Kate, 35, told the show hosts that there was still some tension between she and ex-husband Jon Gosselin, 32.
“It’s…you know,” she said. “I do try to keep it as peaceful as possible.” The level of tension “depends on the day.” But Kate did not end things there, as she went on to proclaim on national television that their eight kids hate spending time at Jon’s nearby apartment.
“I basically wait for the phone call from how many of them want to come home,” she said. Further adding that his apartment “is not [their] home; it doesn’t feel like home to them… they want to be at home — in their house.”
Jon didn’t take too well with Kate’s comments, as he posted the following response on his twitter page: “As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on ‘Regis and Kelly,’ I will refrain. I have learned from the past that it’s a waste of my time and energy. I am ‘rising above’, and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children. My children and the people in my life know the truth, and that is what’s important.”
Must say it’s a sad day in the Gosselin household when Jon appears to be the one taking the high road.
A new report by TV Guide lists the earnings of television actors as well as some reality stars, but it’s the amount that Kate Gosselin reportedly earns from her TLC reality show that has people stunned.

In other Kate news, in a new interview with Extra TV, the mom of eight reveals she is tired of being single and ready to find her soulmate.“I don’t want to be alone,” she says. “I think I’m just scared to mess things up again.”
Kate, 35, who is recently divorced from ex-husband Jon Gosselin, 33, admits she wants someone more in charge than her ex. “[We] are two completely different people,” she says. “I don’t want to be in charge anymore. I didn’t like it when I was.”
As for what she’s looking for in a partner this go around, Kate makes it clear she knows what she wants. “I think older, wiser, patient, kind. I don’t want to be in charge anymore. Somebody to take care of me and my kids of course.”
Seems to be a lot going on in the life of Kate Gosselin these days.
First comes confirmation from the TLC network that Kate will be appearing on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s upcoming reality show, titled Sarah Palin’s Alaska. This is not surprising as the Kate Plus Eight mom was photographed visiting Alaska two weeks ago with her eight kids in tow.
“The Palins graciously shared their Alaska with the Gosselin family and that camping trip will be part of an upcoming episode,” TLC president and general manager Eileen O’Neill said.
The series, featuring the former Alaska Governor and various members of her family and an array of Alaskans all across the state, will premiere Sunday, Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. Kate will be appearing on the premiere episode. It is said that Sarah took Kate and her kids camping during their Alaska visit. No word yet on if Kate was able to see Russia during her time in Alaska.
In other Kate news, E! News broke the story yesterday that Kate will be attending the Emmy Awards on Aug. 29. E! reports Kate will appear at the start of the show in a comedic segment with host Jimmy Fallon as well as “some of today’s biggest and brightest television stars.”
Kate, who’s last book ‘I Just Want You to Know’ bombed after its April release, is set to pen an instructional manual for fellow single moms and dads, you know because with the eight kids, bodyguards, nannies, housekeepers, multiple TV appearances, she is just like any other normal single parent.
Moving right along, UsWeekly is reporting Kate is once again the target in a new child labor law probe for the second time in a year span. This time around, Pennyslyvania Rep. Thomas Murt is arguing that state law permits children under the age of 7 to work in movies, but not on television. This would make Kate’s co-stars sextuplets ineligible to appear on her show. However, the possibility of the kids not being allowed to film for TLC is very unlikely.
Kate’s former Dancing With The Stars professional partner Tony Dovolani is also speaking out about the TLC reality star. When asked if he still keeps in touch with Kate at Wednesday’s ESPY awards show red carpet, Tony said: “I’ll be honest. I actually haven’t stayed in touch with her, she hasn’t stayed in touch with me.”
“I needed a break,” continued Tony. “I got a break with my family, and she’s not someone I worry about. I am more concerned with my own family.” Ouch!
Tony was also asked his opinion on the Jake and Vienna split, being that Jake also appeared on DWTS this season. According to Tony, the split was no surprise to him. “In public, I think they were great,” he said of the twosome. “In public, they only showed that they were in love with each other. But you could tell it was fake.”
As for how he new it was just a showmance, Tony added – “You can tell because you can look at a person and tell if they’re in love or they’re not in love. Me being married for ten years, I knew it wasn’t going to last.”
Just weeks after rumors of being the next Bachelorette hit, comes news that reality Tv QueenKate Plus Eight star Kate Gosselin is actually in talks to appear on the next edition of the Celebrity Apprentice.
“The producers of Celebrity Apprentice are very interested in Kate,” a source close to the show tells HollywoodLife. “And she has expressed interest as well, but there are a lot of kinks to work out before anything concrete can happen.”
Those kinks include the fact that “It’s a six-week commitment and her kids are not allowed to be part of the show; the Apprentices work every day, Monday through Sunday,” the insider explains. “Many people get to the final stages and almost do the show, but it then turns out that they are unable to appear because of scheduling conflicts.”
Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that the above picture with Donald Trump and his wife was just taken outside of Lady Gaga’s July 7 concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.
“If they can make it work, they will,” the source finishes. “They both want it to happen.”
