Kate Gosselin on Today: “I feel a lot of failure”
As she choked up and found it hard to talk through her tears, Kate Gosselin appeared on the Today show this morning and spoke about her split from her husband, Jon.
“I’m determined to hang in there,” she said, while confessing, “I wake up and I feel a lot of failure… This does not feel like the best for [the children].”
She explained that she continues to wear her wedding ring for the kids, and teared up as she said, “I don’t want to upset them.”
Kate denied Jon’s claim that she had checked out of the marriage back in October, saying, “Clearly we both have completely different takes on what went on between us.” But when asked what role she might have played in their June split, she said, “Nobody’s perfect. I was not perfect. Obviously it takes two. What would I go back and change, it’s hard to say.”
Of Jon’s subsequent flings with women including Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s tummy tuck, she said, “Clearly his goals are not my goals… That’s his life. [His decisions] don’t affect me directly at this point. The most hurtful part is when his decisions directly affect our children.”
Kate admitted that there is more peace in the Gosselin household today but admitted that when she thinks back to the Jon she knew, that she still loves him.
