Kate Gosselin Interview with Natalie Morales: A New Side of Kate

posted by dross

Kate GosselinLast night in between watching my beloved Yankees try to win the World Series, I tuned into TLC’s special “Kate: Her Story,” in which Kate Gosselin, star of “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” was interviewed by NBC’s Natalie Morales.
When allegations of her husband Jon’s infidelity was initially reported in the tabloids (apparently rumors had been floating around their town for months before anything was reported in the media), part of me was disgusted that a married man with so many children could do such a thing, while at the same time, I felt it was only a matter of time before Jon would get fed up with Kate emasculating him in almost every episode.
But throughout the past few months, Jon has done nothing to fix his reputation (um, unless you want to count his recent self-denunciation meeting with Rabbi Shmuley). Not only did he jump into another relationship right away, but he’s bad mouthed Kate to the press, something you just don’t do to the mother of your (8) children.
In last night’s interview, Kate was candid about her life and feelings. She discussed growing up in a strict Christian home and admitted that her relationship with her parents isn’t very good. She acknowledged that her brother Kevin and sister-in-law Jodi–whom she was very close with at one time–have sold her out to the press for money. She also admitted that there were times she didn’t treat Jon very well.
Morales did an excellent job of trying to get at the heart of how the “wholesome reality show” rapidly turned into a “soap opera” and didn’t let Kate get off easily, questioning how she could on one hand say that she “wants peace for her kids” and that they “deserve life served to them on a silver platter,” yet puts them and herself in a position to be hounded by paparazzi and featured on tabloid covers.
Kate countered that “we did four seasons without paparazzi.”
Kate revealed that she and Jon “mutually agreed” to end things and that it stemmed from the fact that “goals very much changed–his goals changed.” But does admit that she still has feelings for him.


At that point she broke down a bit and said, “I still think the phone will ring one day and it will be the old Jon.”
When asked if she still loves Jon she said, “Yes. A part of me always will. I love the memories we have together–of the good times.”
In spite of what looks to be a nasty divorce, she is trying to avoid being negative. “I am seeking to be positive, have integrity, and speak with grace.”
Kate also spoke about her faith life. When asked if she still goes to church she responded,” We do. We haven’t been for a while though to be honest. It’s something we all did together. I’m not quite ready to take them alone. That’s the one thing that would be…I don’t know…that there’s only 9 of us.”

Your Advice for Jon and Kate



  • Elliedee

    I too watched Kate’s heartache last night. All I can say, is that she is truly doing the best she can. She seems to have understood how harsh she at times was, with Jon. And has never once place any blame on him. She indeed spoke with grace. What I will never understand is, how quickly a man can move on, in search of someone new? Jon seems to have little feelings for her, while everyone can see Kates pain is still palpable…It makes me wonder, do men ever feel that kind of pain? And if not, why not? Jon is not the first man I have seen who go about thier lives, as if nothing ever happened. As if what they shared under the guise of “love” seems as if, it was never there?

    I’m sorry but I felt Kate was guilty of telling numerous untruths in this interview. She is a terrible representation of a Christian and took advantage of churches in which she spoke.
    She might want to read her Bible:
    An excellent wife is the crown of her husband but she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones. Proverbs 12:4

    I forgot to add my name before. The real reason I would love to win these DVD’s is because two angels live with me. My daughter and her fiance’ both have serious (terminal) illnesses and the shows are so inspirational. I believe “Touched By An Angel” has helped me so many times. I also took care of my Grandfather for the last 4 years of his life. His final wish was to die at home with dignity instead of going to a rest home. My Grandparents provided me with so much love and happy memories I was honored to grant him this final wish. I knew when the time was drawing near and as I stayed by his side I saw an angel in the corner of the room and I felt a strange peace come over me as his spirit left this world. It was an experience I will always cherish and I wrote him this poem.
    “Good Bye To Grandfather”
    (A farewell poem to my beloved Grandfather Nov. 10th 2003)
    We saw the shadows for a couple of days now
    I know they were angels preparing to take you home
    and they were waiting for me to let go
    I saw the light fading in your eyes
    and a glow appeared in the room
    so I sang softly to you and held your hand
    I spoke of Grandma and how long she had waited
    you looked at me as if to say “I understand”
    You seemed content then so with tears I got down on my knees
    and prayed you would no longer suffer
    then I leaned over and for a moment
    put my cheek against your forehead
    kissed you good bye
    and so quickly you slipped away
    Tonight I went in and sat by your empty bed
    and alone with a heavy heart I cried
    for my sweet beloved “Pa” has died
    but I try to hold on to the comfort
    knowing you are now with Grandma
    and the Lord is by your side
    Ann Smith

    You both need to go back to church and follow Gods word and he will lead you back to where you both will be blessed and Forgiveness is very important God forgave us all and we need to step up and ask for forgiveness. And You both need to work on getting the marriage back on track and forget the divorce, God wants you both to really think hard on this because one of the commandment will be broken and that is scary thought for sure God bless you both and please really think hard and do not jump to fast. Love you both Tina
