Kate Gosselin happily posed for photographers while on the red carpet at the Emmys on Aug. 29.
Out of all the people who walked the red carpet at the Emmy Awards Sunday night, one person in particular stood out in the crowd.
Posing among Emmy-nominated actors and actresses such as Jon Hamm and Edie Falco, reality TV star Kate Gosselin reportedly felt right at home at the star-studded event.
Gosselin, 35, who took part in host Jimmy Fallon's opening song-and-dance number, saw her invitation to the Emmys as the "perfect place" to network with casting directors and producers, according to PopEater.com.
"Kate has made her mind up that she's going to be an actress and hopes her new profession will result in her finding a new man," a Gosselin pal told the gossip website.
No folks, this is apparently not a joke.
Having enjoyed her time as a reality star – thanks to runs on TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" – the single mother of eight reportedly wants to shift gears and focus on scripted TV work.
"The show she would really like to be cast in is 'Mad Men" the source said in all seriousness.
And like many of today's Hollywood couples who fell in love on set, Gosselin is reportedly hoping her new break in show business will land her a new man.
"Kate looks at the happiness of couples who met on sets together – Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer and Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks come to mind – and believes that's how she is going to find love again," the insider said. "She has it all planned out and won't take no for an answer."
