Hold on to your chestnuts folks, Kate Gosselin is looking to add “holiday crooner” to her resume! I’ve learned that the multi-talented reality star is itching to deliver a Christmas album chocked full of religious-y tunes. Let’s go ahead and rule out Jon as her backup singer, but you better believe a certain octet will be front and center. More on Kate’s holly-jolly career move, plus a look at a tennis ace’s hair-raising dilemma after the jump!
Kate Plus Eight Plus Holiday Album?
Kate Gosselin wants to show America that it’s not just her dance skills that are a hidden talent. Now, the famous mom and her eight adorable tots want to release a holiday CD packed full of all her favorite religious classics.
“Kate is pitching a CD of holiday songs sung by herself and all her children,” a record executive tells me. “She sees herself as a modern day Maria from ‘The Sound of Music,’ except this time the family singers won’t be the Von Trap family, they would be the Gosselins.”
And it’s not like Kate is the first reality star to release a record. Three of the ladies from Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives’ franchise have put out singles (my ears!) and who can forget that Jessica Simpson, at the height of her reality show career, put out a Christmas CD where she sang ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ as a duet with lil’ sis Ashlee. I swear to you this actually exists.
“Don’t be fooled,” a friend of Kate’s tells me. “Kate sees herself as a brand. She knows her fifteen minutes are not going to last forever and wants to make the most of it. After all, it’s Kate that’s putting the food on the table for all those children.”
Remember my scoop on how the kids actually earn more than daddy?
I don’t know how Kate finds the time to be a reality star, author, dancer, mother of eight and now singer, but let’s all hope that her singing is a touch better than her dancing. Kate will have a little time to practice, as sources tell me that no major label has offered her a deal just yet. But just you wait until they hear those adorable little eight voices singing ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus’! How could anyone say no?
