Single Kate raising eight? It's a sad day for Gosselin supporters — in the latest issue of People, the normally outspoken mama of multiples got candid and quiet during her exclusive interview on the state of her marriage. Here is what Kate had to say:

On hearing reports about Jon and Deanna Hummel: "I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing. I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights."
On the possibility of splitting up: "You can't imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months. It's a lot like when I was first pregnant with the babies, and it was pure shock and denial. But over time I imagined six cribs in my house, and six car seats. When your mind is ready to go there, you can accept any number of scenarios."
On hoping to save her marriage: "I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again."

The fifth season of Jon and Kate Plus 8 premieres on May 25.
