Kate Gosselin says she’s ready for new love in her life, however she’s still hanging out with one of her former flings who supported the reality star during one of the most trying times in her life.
Gosselin was seen Monday in NYC while out promoting her new TLC show, “Kate Plus Date” with bodyguard Steve Neild.
Neild, along with scouting the crowd, was protecting the reality star from the rain and helped her hold an umbrella as she made her way to a waiting car.
Neild has a long history with Gosselin, and it has been rumored they had developed a romantic relationship after the security guard spent so much time around Gosselin and the family during the “Jon and Kate Plus 8” days.
He was also brought into the volatile custody dispute between Kate and Jon, as he had witnessed many of the fights between the two and also helped out with the children.
Gosselin has previously denied romantic involvement with Neild, and insisted that they are just longtime co-workers and good friends.
As we reported, Kate is back in the spotlight with her new dating show, “Kate Plus Date,” which will follow the reality star as she looks for a new relationship.
