You might want to sit down for this one, because it’s a pretty big shocker: Apparently, not everything you see on reality TV is “real.” We know, we know. RELATED: Kate Gosselin Accused of Throwing Away Presents Gifted By Her Ex, Jon, To Their Children! A new report claims that TLC tried to censor Kate Gosselin’s relationship with her long-rumored boyfriend/bodyguard, Steve Neild by allegedly purchasing photos of the pair before anyone else could get their hands on 'em! While TLC denies the claims, the insider adds that the photos in question were “incriminating” and reportedly cost the network a pretty penny. (Photo Credit: Splash) “The TLC network bought the photos so the public couldn’t see them,” a source close to the mother-of-eight tells ‘Radar Online,’ explaining the network felt the steamy photos of their alleged romance could have harmed Kate’s reputation.

The reality TV star attended the gig at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia earlier this month with twins Mady and Cara, 13 and fellow concertgoers have alleged they noticed her and Steve, who has also denied a romantic relationship with Kate, holding hands.

Radar reports the insider said: 'We were at the Demi Lovato concert on Sunday night and had just entered the building and were browsing the merchandise table.

I turned and saw a girl who looked familiar but turned away and didn't think much of it.

'I turned around and lo and behold, it was Kate Gosselin b****ing out the twins.

Last April, ‘In Touch Weekly’ revealed the couple were sharing a hotel room while filming ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ in New York.

But apparently, the 40-year-old is back on the market — and looking for someone who will not only keep her out of trouble, but also set a positive example for her children.

“I would love to date,” the ‘Jon and Kate Plus Eight’ star told ‘In Touch Weekly’ earlier this month.

Suggesting that Neild's wife Gina Downie Neild had posted the photo following rumours Kate was getting close with Neild, Radar claim the photo was taken in the family's home in New Zealand in January this year.

The girls seemed embarrassed and their faces were pleading, "Please don’t know my mother." They looked deflated.
