Kate Gosselin still loves ‘the Jon I knew’

The Superficial / August 10, 2009

Kate Gosselin appeared on Today this morning where she naturally whipped out her trademark narrating skills to sell viewers a line of bullshit crafted by TLC publicists and her divorce attorney:

On if she still loves Jon:
“When I think back to the Jon that I knew, yes.”

On still wearing her wedding ring:
Gosselin broke down, brushing away tears with a tissue, when Vieira noted that she was still wearing her wedding ring. “Why?” Vieira asked. “For them,” Gosselin said with difficulty in reference to her eight children. “I don’t want to upset them.”

On feeling like a failure:
“I wake up and I do feel a lot of failure,” Gosselin replied. “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. I want my children to see a mother who’s committed to her children, who’s determined, who has integrity and perseverance and never gives up. Everything I’ve done for them is out of love.”

On the divorce:
“Clearly, we have totally different takes on what happened.” She said that the blame for the marriage’s failure should be shared by both herself and Jon. “Nobody’s perfect. I was not perfect. Obviously, it takes two,” she told Vieira. “I don’t know, to be honest, what would I go back and change. It’s hard to say.”

Kate also denies rumors that she had an affair with Steve Neild and accuses her brother and his wife of making “tens thousands of dollars” on the tabloid circuit “spreading lies” about the Gosselins. But probably the most disturbing item is that she reveals hers kids’ favorite show is — their own: Jon & Kate Plus 8. Wow. Really? No red flags there? “Hey, my five year old loves staring at himself on TV. In fact, the other day he fired a teamster then demanded we re-edit a scene because he had some lollipop in his hair. Ha ha. Kids.”
