Jon & Kate Gosselin: Divorce In The Works?

Jon & Kate Gosselin: Divorce In The Works?

Not to be outdone by Us Weekly‘s cover, People‘s lead story delves into Jon and Kate Gosselin‘s “marriage in crisis.”

The mag’s headlines declare that Jon and Kate “might split up” and she’ll “do it on her own if she has to.” Gasp!!!!!!

“I don’t know that we’re in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing,” Kate admits of her husband. “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.”

The 34-year-old mom from TLC’s hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8 adds, “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.”

But Mama Gosselin still thinks her marriage is salvageable: “I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again.”

    JARED PLEASE STOP THE INSANITY!

  • Claire

    I HATE HER HAIR.

  • Claire

    I’m sorry i screamed but i thought it was much needed.

  • ok

    Didn’t PEOPLE say last week their marriage was fine? WEIRD

  • dawne

    Should run her threads with Aniston’s………great pair. Fame humping, narcissitic control freaks. But the greatest likeness, both colossal whiners. Aniston has big azz $$$$ money publicists to control her ‘image’ so that noone will know who she really is…………the beech that she is, the sleaze, druggie that she is……….liar etc. Kate Gosselin sold her soul for the money and notoriety and now that it’s hot in the kitchen, she is ‘poor meing’ all over the media. Suck it up, this is a game for the big people…..if you want the $$$, take the underbelly with it like a big girl. Hire Aniston;s PR team if you want the drag to kill negative rag stories. You’ve got the bodyguard now so why not a publicist. This whole reality show thing has gone completely to your rooster head.

  • LolaSvelt

    I might as well not visit this site anymore if this is who you post about ALL. THE. TIME.

    I don’t care about this cheap slág. I didn’t even know who she was until you started posting her ALL. THE. TIME.

    I think I actually preferred seeing Katie Holmes coming in and out of the theatre every day when she was doing All My Sons because at least she’s actually famous for something.

  • mag sales

    How much is she paid for these magazine covers? She’ll do whatever it takes to keep her name in the news. Shrew!

  • Amber

    Haha, good.. I hope they get divorced. She’s a controlling bat who insults everyone around her. She doesn’t deserve happiness.

  • lol

    jared has a new crush. lol

    Amber @ 05/13/2009 at 10:55 am Haha, good.. I hope they get divorced. She’s a controlling bat who insults everyone around her. She doesn’t deserve happiness.
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    What about her kids? They deserve it. Maybe she could learn how to communicatte more lovingly.

  • dawne

    She sold her soul, Jon hated doing the show, but her wishes prevailed. If she wanted to save the marriage she would turn off the cameras and become a ‘wife’ again.

    She shows this guy no affection and treats him like the ninth kid. He really lost his identity and he is a smart young man. If you watch the other Table for Twelve TLC family show, you see a ‘real’ warm and loving couple ……..with the Gosselins all you see is her running the house like a drill sergeant……no warm and fuzzy interaction with her husband. They were a marriage before they were parents, she should remember that. They were normal before all the $$$$ and celebrity.

    She will let him go before she will turn off the cameras………..she has become quite fame hungry. Sad, really. They were once a sweet family. Jon gets it, she does not. She likes the fame, he hates it. She will undoubtedly opt for fame over him.

    Those kids brought her this notoriety and now she puts that before their needs as a family. The damage done to this brood of kids will be massive if they split. But she will have her $$$mil house and lots of cash, so, whatever. Her new partner is fame so she won’t be lonely.

    Jon just wants to be invisible again. He may have to forfeit his kids to get it. What a Catch 22 for him. If he had an affair, I certainly see why. She’s a machine.

  • olivia

    I think that she needs to re-evaluate her behavior towards her husband, she treats him like total horseshit. I couldn’t stand living with a woman who screams at me all the time without batting an eye. Kate needs counseling.

  • P!SSED at JJ

    dawne (post #5) you said pretty much what i was thinking. When i saw the first People story about how this woman was responding to the allegations against her husband, i was so embarrassed for HIM!
    .
    I thought, sheeeesh, does she really have to emasculate the father of her children like that in public? But then, she has been doing it on their…sorry, HER show for so long, and i guess also in their real life, that i guess she doesnt realize that it isnt normal or healthy for a relationship when one party is so abusive to the other, as she is to her husband.
    .
    So youre right, dawne, if she intends to stick with this ‘reality tv’ existence, (cos, lets face it, nothing else will bring in the benjamins like this and they DO have 8 kids to prepare for college) then she should have a talk with the #1 whiny woman’s publicict, aka the publicist from h3ll. He knows how to present an image of you to the world that does not exist in real life. (see jenANUSton.)
    .
    All these b!tches should ONCE AGAIN look to the great Angelina Joie for a tutorial on How To Make Your man Feel 10ft. Tall Every Day Of His Life.
    .
    And i also agree with you too, ebmo (post #10). youre right……….the bottomline is, adults MUST place their own ego on the back burner when it conlicts with their kids’ welfare.
    .
    So, as much as i despise this whiny, self-absorbed woman, i agree that someone ought to teach her how to communicate more lovingly, cos those 8 little babies deserve to have both their parents and a safe, nuturing environment in which to grow up.
    .
    Jon and Kate MUST give them that.

  • Halli

    This is very sad. I feel bad for them in a way, there are tons of anti-Kate anti-Gosselin websites made by bitter lonely housewives. I never understood how and why people would hate on a family. I don’t care, but splitting up is a sad prospect for this family because of the children.

    “I don’t know that we’re in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing” – Kate

    Yeah, Kate wants the spotlight, money and now a bodyguard? Jon wants his private life back. I feel sorry for him, he’s probably disgusted by the way they’ve exploited their children…I would be.

  • J

    Kate you dug your own grave on this one and you have no one to blame but yourself. Attention Whore!

    ONE MORE NEWS JARED FORGOT TO POST!!!

    Angelina Jolie reportedly threw Brad Pitt out of their home after learning of his renewed friendship with Jennifer Aniston.

    The rumour mill has been abuzz with reports that Pitt has turned to his ex-wife as his relationship with Angelina reaches breaking point.

    And now it’s claimed Angelina is far from happy with the latest developments.

    AdvertisementAfter hearing that the pair were back in contact, the Changeling actress is alleged to have had Brad’s belongings taken to a nearby hotel, where she had booked a suite in his name.

    “Angie went mad and told Brad not to bother coming back,” an insider tells Now magazine.

    “She told him he’d humiliated her for the last time and that if he wanted to go back to his boring shallow life with Jen, that was fine by her.”

    Angelina is also said to be angry about Brad’s meeting with Jen’s pal Courteney Cox at a recent Chris Cornell concert in Los Angeles.

    “She can’t stand any of Jen’s inner circle,” says a source

    WHEW! I was going to say it, but you said it all.

  • Renee

    She is HORRIBLE and deserves to lose ALL OF THIS! And these people (mags) just keep handing her money. She could give two sh1ts about him or those kids. Everything is $$$$$$$ to that witch. KARMA speaks again Kate!

  • yep

    @dawne: dawne, I know you’re a Brangie fan. speaking of control freaks… I wonder if People magazine will keep it REAL and reveal how Angelina has to ask for permission from Brad before she does stuff like give autographs to fans. quote from an article about sightings in long island below.
    -
    “She had to ask Brad Pitt if it was all right,” Jacobs says. Ultimately, Jolie and Pitt both signed. As the Jolie-Pitt family left, Jacobs snapped a photo with her iPhone. –Rebeca Jacobs, 21, Lawrence

  • Julie

    This cover is unbelievable. Why would she do it? Why would she say that? Her kids can read for god sake’s! This woman is insane and publicity hungry. Why is SHE doing all the talking and all the photo shoots? Where is Jon?…oh yes, again home with his wonderful children. Oh, she makes me sick.

  • hilary

    i think kate is a bit controlling on the show but alot of women would be like that if they had that many kids screaming all day long. this happens to alot of marriges. Either way there is no excuse for cheating on your spouse. None at all. especially when you know that everybody knows you and watches you. How embarassing for his children. They may be young now but when they grow up and see the pictures of him with the other woman who do you think they are going to resent, their mother for taking care of them and devoting herself to her family or their father for throwing it all away over some girl because “fame” was too much for him. I think it was completely irresponsible of him. if kate can overcome this and forgive him for this i think she is one of the strongest women i know of.

  • ice

    Erm…3 posts in one day? Wow. Kate must be so happy. She has hit big time

  • Rhonda

    I can’t believe she actually found another man to nag to death. That would be a lucky day for Jon getting away from that b—ch. The kids aren’t all that crazy about her either. Can’t wait for the “Mommy Dearest” books to come out when those kids grow up.

  • Delilah

    hahaaha i think its so ridiculous how she si e is trying to come off as a victim and in the process talkin Sh*t about Jon. Gah!! thats y ure in this situation kate, bc u dont STFU!!!!!!!!!!! if she really wanted to solve her family problems, then do it privately, no cameras, no publicity. Just work with your family and try to be less of a bitch (out of the public eye!)

  • Carly

    Now on the cover of people. OMG

    Kate posed for this and gave them a story? Talk about a Fame Whore.

    She should put more effect into her family and husband, then flying around from airports with her “bodyguard”.

  • LEE

    So Kate go travel the world with your new beaufriend the bodyguard..
    and leave Jon to go on his own holiday with his friends and the kids
    oh who gives a crap about them anyway she doesn’t she is the most
    self centred woman who wants her own fame…forget the reason why
    she is one… the 8 kids..!! So Jon leave her and have nannies take
    care of the kids while she is off with the bodyguard and who ever
    else in her short skirts and tight t shirts..is she a mom or a prostitute

  • edna

    If regular people decide to be on TV is because they want attention, fame or whatever so now that she has it she should deal ith with and take advantage, good/bad, but take it, later on people will stop talking about her and her large family.
    Fame sucks, I’ll rather be unknown but happy.

  • Hmmm

    Turn the cameras off and focus on the marriage, both of them should do this. They should ask is the $$$$ really worth what they are putting their children through? They should put their own selfisness aside and concentrate on the kids.
    I watched that show for the 1st time and I was like okay whats the big deal about these people? And the way she treated her son about a strawberry, I was thinking does she need to make a big issue out of everything? IDK, but they should realize that this will eventually take a toll on their marriage and children.

    You do realize youre projecting, right? Youre putting your business out there and projecting like h3ll. We see right through this post. Now we all know what happened to you! You should be lucky that we dont have a photo of you. cos next thing you know, youd be getting your own thread. Oh! My bad. Youre not famous, are you? Sorry?

  • Billie

    It’s all a publicity stunt! ..And it’s working isn’t it?

  • get over it

    jared, enough already.

  • Jon and kate + 8 + “friends”

    Jon looks like a monkey.
    He is a cheat.
    Kate can do better.
    She is still annoying and bit*hy though.

  • Jane

    Who gives a shit about either Jon or Kate’s feelings!? THEY HAVE EIGHT CHILDREN WHO NEED A MOTHER AND FATHER. Not celebrity. Not a TV show. None of that. They’re the reason for the Gosselin’s celebrity to begin with, so why is everyone so intent on talking about the mudslinging parents? It’s the children that are/ should continue to be the focus of this situation.

    And it’s tragic what they have to be put through. So very publicly.

  • go kate

    maybe the bodyguard acts like a grownup man instead of another kid Kate has to boss around like jon.

  • joss

    if she really wants this to work out, the last thing she should do is not get divorced…that’s just giving into what the media wants…

  • Jon and kate + 8 + “friends”

    JJ has the hots for Kate.
    That’s why he makes non-stop posts of her “story.”
    Now he’s all excited because they “might split up.”
    Good luck JJ – I think she will like you.
    I say get some and get out though.
    You don’t want to deal with the 8 kids.

  • Anakin

    Poor Jon, the child support will be insane if they divorce!

  • P!SSED at JJ

    You people dont seem to realize, this family has E. I. G. H. T. 8!!!!!!!!!!!! little ones to PUT THROUGH COLLEGE!!!!!! And to set them up for a great start to adulthood!!!! Thats a parents J.O.B.!!!!!!!!!!!
    .
    In these harsh economic times (who knows how long it will last) who has enough money to put ONE kid through college, much more 8!!!!!!!??????
    .
    Granted they dont all have to go or may not ant to go to college. But it is the parents’ DUTY not only to encourage them to go, but also to ensure that they have the wherewithal to go, and also not to end up in a mountain of college loan DEBTS if they dont have to.
    .
    Therefore, doing this little reality tv show was a good idea to get their family foundation started. Then there are all the spinoffs, like the book deal kate’s got going. Jon should also have a book deal, unless he has other ideas on how to parlay this experience theyre going through, afterall, he has a unique POV as the father to this large brood. then there are the merchandising i suppose they also can do.
    .
    I certainly dont blame this family for doing the show. i do blame them, however, for not hiring the proper counseling or other professional advice about how to handle the fame and public scrutiny.

  • Anakin

    @36 – Jon’s half korean you racist moronic pig!

  • LEE

    Why is he a cheat why can’t he have female friends he is not the cheat
    here SHE IS THE PROSTITUTE WHO CHANGED HER IMAGE TO LOOK LIKE A HOOKER …NOT HIM.. AT LEAST HE IS STILL WITH THE
    KIDS AND HAVE NOT GONE EVERYWHERE WITH THE BODYGUARD
    BY HER SIDE… SHE IS THE CHEATER NOT HIM.. SO WHAT THEY
    WERE IN A CAR AND SO WHAT JON WAS WITH 3 OTHER PEOPLE
    WHEN US MAGAZINE DECIDED IT WAS JUST THE TWO OF THEM
    SURE HE WAS TALKING TO A MALE FRIEND AND TWO OTHER
    PEOPLE AT A TABLE.. SO WHY IS THAT CHEATING..SHE IS A BIG
    PUBLICITY HOUND WHO WILL SAY ANYTHING TO BAD MOUTH HER
    HUSBAND…LET’S SEE HOW ANY OF THESE PEOPLE ON THE COMMENT PAGE WOULD LAST ..ALL MEN CHEAT DOESN’T MATTER
    OF THE RACE BUT NOT HIM..SHE IS A PIMP FOR HERSELF.

  • tori

    I hate to admit this, but I really feel these two need a separation. When i watch the show, I cringe at the relationship these two HAVE around the kids. She belittles, berates, yells and screams at JON all the time. From watching the show, she seems to have that mother/son control relationship with him. As a product of divorce, I know the kids will do fine with the parents on thier own. I’d rather see my father happy and independent than with my mother and belittled all the time.

    Just wait, in a week or two, Dr. Phil will jump in to “rescue this marriage” on his show. More publicity for Kate.

  • Cathey

    If her prioity is her children then why the hell isn’t she home with them?
    She like all the attention SHE is getting not her children!!

  • KATE AND JON FORGET THE KIDS

    WHY BE PISSED AT JUST JARED WHEN PEOPLE MAGAZINE AND
    INTOUCH AND ALL THE OTHER TABLOIDS GIVE HER WHAT SHE
    WANTS AND SHE NOT JUST JARED FAN THE FLAMES HERE..

    SHE PROBABLY STARTED THE WHOLE THING WHEN WAS THE
    LAST TIME ANYONE SAW HER WITH HER KIDS.. GET A NANNY
    KATE AND GO SOLO…WHO NEEDS YOU IT COULD BE CALLED

    “The Nanny and eight” who needs cheating parents and a TLC show
    that shows that it is o.k to cheat and exploit it on the show and tell
    all the intimate details of the problems because they believe that the
    fans have a right to know… HEY KATE WRITE ANOTHER BOOK ABOUT
    YOUR MARRIAGE AND YOU CAN GO ON ANOTHER BOOK TOUR..!!

    YOU ARE

  • URRight Anakin/#39

    Poor Jon, the child support will be insane if they divorce!
    ______________________________________________________

    He’s the one the children run to when they need love or comfort or attention because she’s too busy shrieking at everyone and playing to the camera! He’s the one who should get custody of those kids. And therefore the money and everything. Losing control of the money, and losing the attention, would make her head explode. That’s why she and her pr people are hitting at him first to try to gain control. That and their new season starts in a few days yea? Great lead in drama.

  • *******

    It seems to me Kate likes to be in control. I watched an episode when she was explaining about how she got inseminated. They already had the twins and Jon said he was happy with that and wanted her to wait, but Kate didn’t listen and decided to go ahead with it herself. Not only that she seems to be always slapping him. She has taken away any part of him being the man of the family. If she really wanted to make it work and she really loved him she would learn to ignore the media and work on her marriage. I almost got the feeling the reason she came forward about she and the body gaurd was out of guilt not out of trying to explain things. They need to listen more to one another.

  • to tori @ 1:24 pm

    I agree with you 100%. Oh yeah, she’d lap up the attention from Dr. Phil wouldn’t she?

    Youre obviously one and the same person. And you obviously hate Kae and love Jon.
    .
    The question is, why are so invested in this? Are you Jon? Are you the chick he is alleged to have cheated with? are you just another skank who thinks a man should be with you and not the woman he actually chose for himself? ya know………….inquiring minds want to know, since youve stuck your neck out there in such a rabid manner.
    .
    BTW, you really dont have to shout. We get it. You fel very strongly about these two people. And their life. And their family. Which is not yours.

  • Pattycake

    What’s with all the hate? Why do some people here “hope they get divorced”? These two are both to blame for the situation they find themselves in. All you female haters who want to blame her exclusively, you sicken me. These two made a pack with the devil (ie, the media) and quickly lost control of their lives and their perspective. The kids became a means to an end and not a priority. My wish for them is that they take the millions they have made and quietly go back to their million dollar home and all the freebies they have been given and take up raising their kids. I don’t wish them a life in hell or anything bad. But I do think they may have lost their audience and will soon loose their show.

  • pissed at jj

    Don’t you get it she wrote the book to get away from her kids..and no
    I am not the mistress I am tired of hearing about how Just Jared is
    responsible for her publicity when the other tabloid mags are doing
    it too.. IS THAT OK WITH YOU PISSED AT JJ FOR WHAT … THAT IS
    THE POINT WHY ARE YOU SO PISSED AT JJ FOR THIS GARBAGE..

    IF YOU ARE PISSED WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO SAY THAT
    AND IT IS NOT YOUR FAMILY EITHER.. I
