If you miss Kate Gosselin's run on The View this week, not to worry. She's apparently gunning for her own ladies-only chatfest.
And I hear Gosselin may already be cooking something up with a well-seasoned television veteran.
Keep reading to find out what's going and who's involved…
Sources tell me that Telepictures—the media heavyweight behind Ellen DeGeneres' and Tyra Banks' hit shows—is looking to develop a View-like morning show with Gosselin and television cooking queen Paula Deen.
"They're looking around and casting for other women to be on the show with them," one source said. "But they want all the women to be moms."
For the one percent of the world's population who may not know this already, Gosselin, 34, has eight little ones with estranged husband Jon, 32.
Deen, 62, has two grown sons, Jamie and Bobby. She already hosts three shows, Paula's Home Cooking, Paula's Party and Paula's Best Dishes, for the Food Network. Although Deen signed a deal with Telepictures to host her own syndicated talk show, the project never took off.
A rep for Telepictures would not confirm or deny a Gosselin-Deen show was in the works. "We don't comment on any development activity," the rep said.
Gosselin told Entertainment Weekly about four months ago she has hopes of landing a talk show. "There are no mom-centered talk shows," she told the magazine. "I think that would be a very comfortable thing for me."
