Out With Jon, In With Paula?

Telepictures—the media heavyweight behind Ellen DeGeneres' and Tyra Banks' hit shows—is rumored to have tapped Kate Gosselin and cooking star Paula Deen to host a new talk show. "They're looking around and casting for other women to be on the show with them," one source said. "But they want all the women to be moms." Deen, 62, has two boys, Jamie and Bobby, (who have a show of their own) and hosts three shows already. And of course Gosselin has her famous eight, and an estranged husband, too. Telepictures would not confirm or deny the report: "We don't comment on any development activity," a rep said. But Gosselin told Entertainment Weekly several months ago she had her eye on a talk show. "There are no mom-centered talk shows," she told the magazine. "I think that would be a very comfortable thing for me."
