It’s good that potential new boyfriends don’t typically check with exes for relationship references, because Kate Gosselin doesn’t seem to have too many happy men in her past.
The romance began strongly enough, with Jeff publicly praising Kate, and Kate sparking engagement rumors…but reports he abruptly ended things earlier this month, days before he was scheduled to film for Kate’s TLC show.
Their source said Jeff “is protective of his three children from a previous marriage and didn’t want the increased exposure, so his team advised him against filming with Gosselin.” They also said he’s moved on with a 26-year-old woman, which left Kate broken-hearted.
“He’s very good looking,” Deanna reassured Kate of her potential new man.
“I told him you were a very hot blonde…with 8 kids.” Kate’s blind date was with Vann, an “interesting” man who shared Kate’s love of the “open waters,” but didn’t live in Pennsylvania, which forced Kate (and Deanna) to take a town car to New York City for the occasion. Before the night out, the so-called “monster” mom’s brood of eight expressed their opinions on her potential coupling.
Daughter Mady offered, “I think it’s good for her to find a husband so she doesn’t die alone.” Joel was a tad gentler, saying, “Finally little birdy has sprouted wings and flown the nest.” Meanwhile, challenges aside, pal Deanna was dead set on making Kate’s date a success, perhaps because she was looking for a potential spinoff show. Living in New York City, Vann resides where there is quite literally a man shortage.
Despite the plethora of single women to choose from in the Big Apple, Vann decided on none other than Kate Gosselin, mother-of-eight from Pennsylvania (that’s a red flag, ladies).
