Kate Gosselin Wants to Be in Movies, Says "Aloneness Is So Alone"
Kate Gosselin hopes to graduate from the small screen to the big screen.
Answering fan questions on Monday's You Ask, Kate Answers TLC special, Gosselin, who's previously said she wants to parlay her "gift of gab" into a talk show, made no qualms about her career ambitions.
"Somewhere in here I've discovered that I've done enough years of TV that I feel like it's a normal, natural, comfortable place to be. I'd love to be in a movie at some point," she said. "I would love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun."

During the one-hour special, the mother of eight also addressed her coupon-clipping habit ("Once you're a saver, you're always a saver"), the Kate-inspired Halloween wigs ("I laughed my head off"), saving up for her children's college education and remarrying.
"Really? Seriously? Do you really think now is a good time to be asking me that?" the 34-year-old said in response to the question "Do you ever see yourself married again?"
She does though — in about 40 years. "To be honest, I don't know. I struggle because I really don't want to be married again. Can you blame me?" she said. "But I don't want to be alone. The aloneness is so alone. It has to be someone with a lot of patience, character, strength and wisdom to take us on. I don't know if that is possible. Maybe when I'm 73-and-a-half!"
Kate Gosselin: Children have been "acting out"
Gosselin is only a year removed from her last wedding — her vow renewal ceremony with Jon in Hawaii. Denying that the event was staged, Gosselin said they both went into it with the best intentions and she doesn't have any regrets. The hardest part, though, she said is answering her children when they point out she and Jon promised to be married forever at the ceremony. "[Y]ou can't quite explain it to kids. I have trouble explaining it to myself," she said. "It's just hard to believe that was a year ago and we've gone so far from it."
Lashing out at the media, Gosselin said it's "disgusting" that tabloids make money "on falsities," but insisted her children are not "suffering" from the attention. Her children's futures are secure, she said. There is a "healthy amount of money" put away for their college educations, accrued over the past five seasons of the show.
TLC sues Jon Gosselin
Asked where she sees herself in 10 years, Gosselin said she doesn't "project" anymore. "If I had my choice, myself and my kids in 10 years will be happy, healthy ... I would love my TV career thing to be successful. I've found my niche. I would love not to be alone...but nobody's ever going to buy into my mess, so I probably will be. But it's OK, I'll just be working hard anyway."
You Ask, Kate Answers aired in place of a traditional Jon & Kate Plus 8 episode. Next Monday, TLC will air another Kate Gosselin special, Kate: Her Story, featuring Gosselin's sit-down with NBC's Natalie Morales.
