Kate Gosselin Debuts New Bikini Bod

After eight babies, a nasty divorce and a controversial turn on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Kate Gosselin is debuting a hot new bikini bod on this week’s cover of People magazine. The Kate Plus 8 mama says she toned up with “near-daily runs” near her Wernersville, Pa. home.

“I’ve worked really hard!” the 35-year-old mom tells People. “Haven’t I earned the right, at this point, to look good?”

Um, sure! Kate, who says she’s now in the best shape of her life, also reveals she’s ready to find love again.

“I’m waiting for Mr. Right,” she says. “It would be nice if somebody noticed me, sure!” Now that she’s flashing a bikini on the cover of a national magazine, that shouldn’t be too hard. Give Kate a call, guys!

As for persistent rumors romantically linking her to her bodyguard, Kate scoffs: “It’s just absurd.”
