The mother of eight shed a tear over her marriage and stood firm on her belief that the show, 'Jon and Kate Plus 8', does them good.
Almost two months after she announced her separation from Jon Gosselin, "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin said that she still loves him and wears her wedding band. Kate did an interview with Meredith Viera on "TODAY", spilling about her life after the turmoil and how it has changed the whole family.
Kate said what happened between her and Jon would happen eventually with or without the publicity, stating that their divorce is not the product of their reality show. When asked whether she still has feelings for Jon, Kate said, "When I think back to the Jon that I knew, yes."
At some point of the conversation, Kate broke down in tears. Viera asked her why she is still seen with her wedding ring. "For them," she said in reference to her eight children. "I don't want to upset them." Kate also addressed her statement that she still wakes up feeling like a failure. "This is not what any mother sets out for their children. It's necessary. It has to take place. I think I've turned the focus on myself," she explained.
The issue of her affair with her chief of security was also discussed with Kate denying any sort of cheating. "There is no affair. There never has been an affair," Kate stated firmly. "We are very, very good friends with him, his wife and his family. They are huge social support. It's just another crazy rumor. It sells tabloids."
"Jon & Kate Plus 8" still airs every Mondays on TLC. Kate believes the show has helped her kids to have a trust fund for college.
Jon Gosselin was also scheduled to have his first interview after the separation with E! but it was canceled. "The interview with Jon Gosselin originally scheduled for tonightâ��s (August 10) E! News has been canceled,â�� a spokesperson for E! said in a statement.
