Kate Gosselin is so determined to return to reality TV that she might fund her own show, hoping that a cable network will like what it sees and eventually give her a new show.

"I know three different cable networks that have passed on making a pilot with Kate," one network insider told The Huffington Post. "Kate and her children are a known TV quantity - it's an easy yes or no."

According to The Post, the answer to Gosselin has so far been a universal "no," so she has been forced to pay to produce herself. 

"Many shows that have initially been denied funding and were self-produced went on to be major hits," one producer told The Post. "Jersey Shore and Oxygen's new reality show 'Girl Confidential' were all produced on spec. The difference is both of these shows involved unknowns that needed to prove themselves on camera."

"At this point, we know everything about Kate," the producer added.

The author of "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World," Robert Hoffman, said the former reality TV star even got in contact with another reality star mom, Kendra Wilkinson. Gosselin's idea to Wilkinson was to take on a new show about moms swapping kids.

According to Radar Online, Gosselin left her eight kids with Wilkinson for a week. They were filming their new show "Mom Swap," making Wilkinson their mom for the week. 

According to the Post, neither Gosselin nor Wilkinson's rep returned calls for comment.

In mid October, Gosselin was fired from her job as a blogger for CouponCabin. According to The Daily News, the website abruptly fired the reality TV star because she was too demanding.

CouponCabin CEO Scott Kluth said Gosselin brought in too much negative attention for the website to handle because of her book.

"A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago, and that Ms. Gosselin is simply not a good fit with the wonderful team and culture at CouponCabin," Kluth said.
