Kate Gosselin Shops in New York City

Kate Gosselin Shops in New York City

Kate Gosselin was all smiles as she went shopping in New York City.

She walked along Central Park with her ever-present bodyguard Steve Neild as New Yorkers called out words of encouragement.

Gosselin looked great in a navy blue dress and a gray sweater, and she carried an Anne Taylor shopping bag. She told fans she was tired after flying back on the red eye from the West Coast.

The mother of eight was in New York to appear on Live with Regis and Kelly.

She and her dance partner, Tony Dovolani, danced the tango that got her booted off the show.

"I feel like they kicked me off of summer camp too soon," Gosselin said about leaving Dancing with the Stars.

Ex-husband Jon Gosselin was taking care of the kids back at the family home in Pennsylvania.

Gosselin says she already misses her Dancing with the Stars competitors and says reports that they didn't get along behind the scenes are untrue.
