Kate Gosselin had a messy split with her ex-husband Jon Gosselin, but after two years, she is ready to find someone new.

Gosselin stopped by the set of the "Today Show" on Monday where she talked about the premiere of the new season of "Kate Plus 8" and life as a single mother.

"I'm definitely ready to start dating," she told Ann Curry. "I think there's a lot of obstacles for me."

"The kids, on a daily basis, are begging me to get married again," she added. "They bring it up all the time. But I have to tell them 'I am not dating anyone.''

Gosselin, 36, rose to fame with the reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8," which featured her, former husband Jon, their sextuplets and twins. The show was canceled in 2009 following the pair's divorce the following December. Kate Gosselin landed back on television in the spin-off series, "Kate Plus 8," which stars Gosselin and her children: 10-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 6-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel.

In a clip from an upcoming episode of "Kate Plus 8," which can be seen below, Gosselin is seen talking about a man she finds attractive across the street from the bakery she's visiting and baking cupcakes in.

At one point she asks her body guard to bring the man over to the bakery where she gives him a free cupcake.

Back on the "Today Show," Gosselin also addressed rumors that her show was getting canceled. "There is a lot of talk about it and nobody's told me, so we're happy to continue on and will do so as long as people are watching," she said.

In December, Gosselin made headlines when she pulled her children Collin and Alexis out of school for behavioral problems. Now, she says, the kids are doing fine.

"The kids are doing fantastic. I don't think that they could doing any better. They are great, well mannered, awesome kids," she said. "We really have pulled together, the nine of us."

Gosselin said in June that things between her and Jon Gosselin were on the mend and that the relationship between the two had "just naturally gotten more peaceful."
