Kate Gosselin is reportedly displeased with the lack of interest TV producers have shown in offering her a new reality series following TLC's cancellation of Kate Plus 8.
"She has approached many different networks, including pitching a travel show idea to her old network, TLC, but so far no one has said yes," a source told the Huffington Post, according to RadarOnline.
"She assumed that given her fame, producers and networks would be knocking her over with job offers and is, to say the least, very surprised that she hasn't received a single one."
While former husband Jon Gosselintold RumorFix earlier this month that "reality TV is not a career" after Kate reportedly "freaked out big time" over the network's decision to cancel her show, Kate said at the time she would be interested in doing another reality series if the right opportunity presented itself.
"It would have to be the right one, but I think at this point, the best opportunity for all of us would be me continuing in TV as a way to provide for my kids. Something that's exciting and challenging for me has been TV. You know, I wouldn't be opposed to it," the 36-year-old single mom of eight said during an appearance on NBC's Today show.
"If the right thing came along, I think we all are still in agreeance with it. I'm sure you will see my kids again at some point."
According to the reality TV star, her eight children "weren't ready" for the series -- Kate Plus 8 began as Jon & Kate Plus 8 in 2007 before being relaunched as Kate Plus 8 last year following Gosselin's 2009 divorce from Jon -- to be over when TLC had announced in August the show would not be renewed for a third season.
