The problem is the networks don't like her solo. They like her with the kids. So, yesterday was her chance to get her two oldest kids in front of the camera and show production companies what they could do and it was a disaster. The teens obviously don't want to help their mother. Did they purposefully throw her under a bus? It sure looked that way when they didn't want to talk and makes me think Kneepads did one of their glorious jobs of reporting and let Kate do the talking for the kids when they did their "interview."
All along though Kate has wanted a Bachelorette type show focused on her. She wants guys to date her. Wine and dine her and fawn all over her while she is the star of the show. She wants to film in exotic destinations and will "sacrifice" time spent with her kids to film. She knows all the press for the show would be about her and that all the focus would be her and she sees the show running for many years because she doesn't actually want someone to be with because that would mean sharing more of the spotlight.
She wants classy for the show and wants a big budget and great guys and also wants about $1M a season for herself plus a bunch of other demands.
