The mother of eight said she's not worried about a guy's bank account.

"Wealthy, eh, I don't mind working," she explained.

"I've never been the kind of person, like, if I can't meet you in and in five minutes and see that there's something, I'm not the kind that will go out on dates just to go out," she told Billy and Kit. "I have better things to do."

As for ex-husband Jon Gosselin, Kate said their relationship has improved recently.

"He's actually working now, he has a job, so he has a different focus, which is good…something with roof solar panels, I think," she said of Jon. "He's actually making an effort to, you know, the four days a month that he has the kids, they come home happy. He's making a better effort to have a better environment to have them visit, which is good.

"I do wish he would see them more, but that is what he has chosen," she added. "The kids would like to see him more. At least it's consistent. I can at least count on those four days… but anytime he wants them more, he can have them more and he knows that."

"Kate Plus 8" airs Mondays at 10 PM on TLC.
