After really disliking her for four years on Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin has become one of my favorite people. She said with the Today show’s Meredith Vieira this morning to talk about her life now, how she feels about estranged husband Jon Gosselin, and what’s true and false.
“I feel like every morning I wake up and there’s a new rumor,” she said this morning. “First of all, there is no condo [in Maryland]…I live at home with my kids. That’s where I belong, that’s where I will stay.” And about the rumored romance with head of security Steve Neild? Just another random rumor according to Kate. “There is no affair, there never has been an affair,” she says. “He’s one of our rotating security people. It’s just another crazy rumor. It sells tabloids.”
With Jon claiming that Kate was the one who gave up on the marriage first, Kate took a second to address that saying that she wasn’t the one who gave up, it was something mutual. “Clearly, his goals are not my goals,” was her main reason behind the split. And what about his new girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and his life in New York? “They’re his decisions,” she said. “They might not be the ones that I would make.”
Definitely the most upsetting part of the interview was when Kate was asked why she still wears her wedding ring. “For them,” she admitted, referring to her eight kids. “I don’t want to upset them. While I’ve been very real and as honest as I need to be, I don’t want to shock them. I’ve walked slowly through this with them. When they’ve asked questions, I’ve answered them.” But come on Kate, is that the only reason? “I’m wearing the ring because, well, it’s been there for 10 years,” she says. “When the time is right, I will take it off. I’ve done a try of a day here or there.”
Alright Kate, I’m officially on your side in the divorce. All I’m asking is that you change the hair. Please? Thank you. Make sure to check out the video of the Today interview after the jump. Kate crying about her wedding ring is seriously priceless.
