Kate Gosselin tells Andy Cohen about dating life, bodyguard rumors

Mrs. Carter: Kate Gosselin’s back in the limelight … at least for one night courtesy of some surprising questions.

Ever since wrapping her her time on the hit TLC show “Kate Plus 8,” the famed reality TV mom has mostly kept her TV appearances to just some occasional “check in” interviews on the likes of morning talk shows. With that in mind, her appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live!” was a little bit of an aberration. It was really Kate’s first major foray into late-night TV in the past several years, and it also led to some revealing questions that come as a bit of a staple as to what Cohen likes to do on his show in order to both grab headlines and create some shocking moments for his devoted fan following.

Just one subject that came up was whether or not Kate has been in some sort of relationship with her bodyguard Steve Neild, and this is a question that she has been asked probably a million times before over the years. As for her response, let’s just say that it really has not changed very much at all since she was asked this for the very first time as she insisted that he is around solely for trust and safety reasons:

“Because [in] my job as a single parent to provide for eight kids, my safety is imperative to them … I’m not going to give out [past horror] stories, but it’s warranted for sure. He keeps them safe.”

Kate has said over the years that she would be interested in appearing on some sort of dating show in order to really give her something that she has not really had time to do over the past few years: actually spend time with someone away from the children and figure out if they are really right for her.

Do you think it was right for Andy to press on this subject? We want to hear from you below!
