Kate Gosselin claims that only some of her eight children visit their father, Jon Gosselin.

According to a report from E! News, the former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star spoke about her ex-husband recently, and what kind of relationship she and the kids have with him.

"I don't have one," the former Celebrity Apprentice star said of her relationship status with Jon Gosselin. "I keep the peace. Some of the kids visit and some don't. That's for the best."

Kate Gosselin claims her children are encouraging her to find love again, however.

"They are encouraging me more and more. I just don't have a lot of time to be out there to be searching for someone! I would love to date! And I would love for the kids to have that male role model," she says. What kind of man is the former nurse interested in dating? "He has to be comfortable with the publicity, my eight kids—and all the noise in my house!" she says in an upcoming issue of In Touch.

Kate has been linked in the past to bodyguard Steve Neild as well as wealthy businessman Jeff Prescott. She insists she never dated either man, however.

Kate Gosselin does admit to having a crush on actor Patrick Dempsey, who is single these days.

How do you suppose her eight kids would feel about having another celebrity in the house?

It's actually rather sad that Kate Gosselin's kids don't all visit their father. Do you think she plays a role in that decision? Even though Kate claims she allows the kids to visit Jon when they want, she has never had much positive to say about him ever since their split.

Do you think as the Gosselin children grow a bit older and even more independent they will spend more time with their dad? Sometimes kids feel like they're supposed to pacify one parent or the other when they live in a family of divorce. Hopefully Kate Gosselin isn't making any of her children feel they shouldn't be spending time with their father.
