One Rough Camping Trip Later, Kate Thinks She Has Political Ambitions
By Rob Shuter Posted Dec 13th 2010 05:00PM
Following Kate Gosselin's televised (and rough) camping trip with Sarah Palin, the mom of eight is now telling friends she too has political ambitions and would some day like to run for office.
"Honestly, Kate is unbelievable," an insider tells me. "Her ego is out of control at this point. Ever since 'Dancing With the Stars,' and the fact that she appeared on more consecutive covers of US Weekly than any celebrity ever, she thinks that she has what it takes to run for office."
The unlikely duo of Kate and Sarah was the brainchild of TLC, the network home for both of their reality shows. Pairing them on the latest episode of 'Sarah Palin's Alaska,' which aired last night, helped bump ratings up 11 per cent. As Us put it, the two had "zero chemistry" and Kate has called the trip "the worst" of her life.
"After meeting and spending time with Sarah, Kate realized that if she could run for office then so could Kate," a friend of Gosslin's tells me. "Sarah does have a little bit more experience than Kate does in office but what they have in common is huge. They are both famous reality stars that you either love or hate. They both are beautiful and have a way of getting everyone's attention."
Oh yeah, and both have appeared on the biggest television show in America, 'Dancing With the Stars,' though Sarah was just a spectator. (A very, very, very influential spectator, of course.)
What do you think, should Kate run for office some day? Would you vote for her? You got to admit those would be fun ribbon-cutting ceremonies with all her kids running around!
