Kate Gosselin Talks Family Failure on Today Show

Divorce after 10 years of marriage isn't what most mothers want for their growing children. and reality star Kate Gosselin is no different. In her first interview since she and Jon announced their separation, the mother of eight broke her silence and spoke candidly with Meredith Viera on the Today Show this morning. The soon-to-be divorcee talked about her love for the husband she knew and her disconnect from the man he has become. Kate also chatted about how she's putting her best foot forward for her children and moving toward the future.

To watch the clip of Kate addressing rumors, from her alleged affair with her bodyguard to how her parenting is affecting her twins and sextuplets,

If she truly cares about every member in her family then she would stop airing their family business immediately. And why all the tears on television when most know that they're fake. Oh that's right, Kate needs more ratings to keep the show on television. What a shame for those poor kids.

"Wow, women certainly love to be big b*tches to other women. Have a little compassion." I concur.

their marriage was created by their actions/non-actions. they gave up on it and now are dealing with unhappy kids. lets say kate is a total control freak and jon is a no help dad. YOU PICKED THIS PERSON. if you really wanted to do something for the kids you would have sucked it up and found a way to stay married. it got hard and you both decided that "till death do us part" didn't mean anything. that will teach your kids something. renew the vows WITH the kids in the ceremony and then a couple of months later you announce divorce; your words and promises lose their meaning. it seems like nothing is private for this family. which makes me worry for the kids when they hit those teen years. "hey mom and dad! you think YOU gor headlines?? look at this!" weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! the show must go on, right?

i haven't watched this yet but i'm sure it'll be all over the news feeds tonight. i REALLY think TLC should have stopped the show. their marriage is a mess and so is their family. i mean is it really fair to the kids to air all this? what will they think when they are older? if this blog is any representation of the media in general, a ton of us were jon and kate fans in the beginning. however, it's reached the point of ridiculous now with all their personal drama. it seems like people don't want to hear about it anymore ... it's no longer entertaining. how about the duggars? or, the little people family show? good values. there's enough crap on t.v. already about people doing bad things and not treating each other nicely. it's nice to see that someone people are still polite and nice - we need more of them on the screen.

I don't think anyone really knows what goes on behind closed doors and when the cameras are off except for Jon & Kate. What we know is what we've seen edited on the show... other than that - it's what you want to make up in your head. It's easy to get on your high horse and point fingers and call them names just because they are on a reality TV show, but in fact, they are real parents and real kids. I wish the family all the best and hope they can get through this.

Did everyone see the pics of Jon hooking up with his kids babysitter? EW! Kate can do better.

I feel for the children, mainly. Divorce is hard for small children to deal with. But I think Jon and Kate both had an equal part in destroying their marriage.

the mother of eight broke her silence .... Broke her silence? What was she doing on the cover(s) of People ? Give me an effing break. She is a fame whore, through and through. If she wanted what was best for her family she would get herself - and her children - out of the public eye.

I'm sorry, but I seriously believe Kate started this whole mess and is now facing the consequences. It's easier for Jon to be blamed because he's see out in public with the younger woman. Kate did her dirt behind closed doors.
