Believe it or not, Kate Gosselin may not be as outspoken as you might think.

I hear the famous mother of eight was surprisingly reserved when she shot the pilot this weekend for an in-the-works syndicated talk show with cooking queen Paula Deen.

"She was very shy," a source reports. "She was a lot shier than I thought she would be."

How did she jive with Deen and the other potential cohosts, comedian Judy Gold, former Early Show coanchor Rene Syler and newsman Bob Woodruff's wife, Lee Woodruff?

"She's a quiet lady," the source said. "She was very low-key. But all of the women got along great."

The show, being developed by media powerhouse Telepictures, is said to be focusing on issues particular to motherhood. Reports claiming Christie Brinkley and Mel B would be guests on the pilot turned out to be false, according to the source.

"There were no guests," the source said. "It was just the ladies getting to know each other. They talked about everything from what's in the news and anything else you could imagine moms would chat about."

The pilot was shot over two 12-hour days in a New York City studio.

"They're all smart and witty," the source said. "Everyone brings a different dynamic."

As for the next step, the source said everyone is waiting to hear back from executives at Telepictures.
