kate gosselin answer questions movie star

Lights, camera, Kate Gosselin!

The reality mom, 34, announced on Monday's "Kate Plus 8" that she's ready to move from the small screen to the silver screen.

"I would love to be in a movie at some point. I'd like to be the voice in a cartoon for my kids ... and I would love for my TV career to be successful," Kate told viewers during the "You Ask, Kate Answers" episode.

Of being in front of a camera, Kate said, "I feel like this is normal."

Viewers flooded Kate with questions about the well-being of her kids, who have seen their parents battle it out in an increasingly ugly divorce.

"They're not suffering from this," Kate insisted. "They're kids 99 percent of the time," she said. Earlier this month, Jon halted production on their TLC reality show, claiming the kids were suffering.

Kate also confirmed the couple -- which have been fighting in court over money -- have set aside funds for their eight children. "There is a healthy amount of money put away, and it is safe and will not be touched," she said.

Kate announced that she's sworn off marriage, but added, "I don't want to be alone."

The mother of eight also has no qualms discussing the staff that helps her "survive" in day-to-day life. Gosselin admitted to having "a full-time babysitter, a girl who cleans my house and people to do the yard work."

She went on, "Does that sound pampered? It's called survival."

With production halted on the show, TLC has announced it only has enough footage to air episodes through November.

Jon revealed on “Good Morning America” that their marriage “will never be fixed.”

Love Hurts
