Execs: Kate too controversial for show

Kate Gosselin won't be on a TV show for which she shot a pilot because executives thought she was too controversial, radar Online reports.

On the pilot - taped in September - Gosselin joined Food Network star Paula Deen, author Lee Woodruff and former "Early Show" co-host Rene Syler. The show was described as "The View" for working mothers. With multiple hosts, the show was designed to tackle topics such as teen pregnancy as well as lighter fare.

High-level executives believed Gosselin was too controversial for the show and was not ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel, a source told Radar Online.

But Gosselin will be back on TLC in the spring with a new show, whose concept has not been made public. Radar previously reported that Gosselin was spotted in North Carolina taking orders and waiting on customers in a diner - presumably as part of this new show.
