Reality TV star Kate Gosselin who is going through a divorce process with her husband and co-star of the show Jon Gosselin, spoke in the first interview since both announced the bad news on TLC's show Jon & Kate Plus 8.
Kate said she is focused on the well being of her eight children and though the separation is not the best for their them, she has no expectations to re-unite with Jon because their goals have taken different directions.
Speaking with Meredith Vieira from NBC's Today Show, Kate broke into tears when Vieira spotted her wedding ring on her finger. The ring is for them (the children), - she replied after Vieira expressed curiosity in the ring -. I don't want to upset them, she said. She also denied that she wears the ring in hopes of reuniting with her ex-husband.
I am as well as can be expected. Thank you. I'm determined to hang in there. What life hands me, I'm going to do, Kate said in the exclusive interview, admitting she feels a lot of failure.
Kate also said she still loves the Jon that she knew.
She adressed rumors about her marriage. She denied she had bought or even checked out a condo and said she never had an affair with her bodyguard Steve Neild, but was very good friends with him, his wife and family.
TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 will air tonight as usual but with a greater focus on the activities of the children.
