Kate Gosselin Feels Like A Failure

Kate Gosselin Feels Like A Failure

Kate Gosselin once again takes the latest cover of People for an exclusive interview.

The 34-year-old reality mom shares why she filed for divorce and how she and Jon told the kids about the split.

In her first interview since the divorce papers were filed, Kate reveals that it was Jon who wanted out.

“He does not want to be married to me anymore,” Kate said. “No questions asked, he went and hired a lawyer and said you better get one. So I did. I never would have made that step; I never would have done it.”

When Kate and Jon told their kids about the news, they never used the words “separation” or “divorce.”

“I’m not naïve,” she said. “I know that my kids will come out of this, to a degree, with some sort of dysfunction. I’m not stupid.”

Speaking about how she feels about the whole situation, the mother-of-eight shared, “On a good day, I feel relief. On a bad day, I feel failure.”

    I think she might mean,. . .she feels she failed making a big money deposit this week. She is crying all the way to the bank.

    Why is she making this all about her? She says “Jon left me no choice”. WTH? It’s a two-way street. Don’t put all the blame on Jon. Didn’t he want to quit the show? Didn’t you want to stay on? You chose money over marriage….bottom line.

    Yeah its the divorce that will permenantly scar her children emotionally. Not the fact that they each have 7 brothers and sisters and their parents essentially sold them on tv. Nope, it will be the divorce.

    Why does she keep blaming Jon, come on Kate, you are to blame too. She is such a liar. She sold her kids and marriage out for fake boobs, tanning, Ann Taylor, cars and a house — now she is whining passing the blame. Get real!

    Has she seen any of the episodes? She must know what a nut she is… I’d probably want a lawyer too; even if she was trying to act amicable with Jon, I doubt he trusts her to stay that way throughout the divorce proceedings.

    Those two are both messed up beyond belief…. They are going to be so lucky if even just one of their kids doesn’t grow up to hate them.

    i woman who implants herself with 6 embryos is not an emptional stable person. kate is a control freak that truly believes she is superior to all the people around her. i’ve watched numerous episodes where she belittles, slaps and humilates the ones who love her. constantly second guessing her husband, she reduced him to nothing. she is a victim of herself and will be alone or become a mommie dearest.

    she was never looking for a partner in jon, just a sperm donor/ slave.

    I agree with Kate. John is pathetic. Then again, so is she.

    Any fool that watches the show and has for years would say Run Jon Run! I don’t blame him. I stopped watching the show because of Kate. I would never have taken what she dished out.

    As much as I want to move away from this story, it’s hard not to keep wanting to get the play by play especially since they announced the divorce. Interesting that Jon wanted the divorce but not surprising either. I don’t know how you tell your kids you’re getting a divorce without saying it.

    People Magazine got smart and toned down that wanky haircut for the cover.

    I could see all along that FAMILY was more important to Kate. Jon said it all Monday night, “I am only 32 yrs old and I am EXCITED about this next step”. He is ready to bolt. He has been behaving like a single teen for months now. His behavior this weekend at their home showed loser Jon playing like a kid more with his toys (ATV) than a father really playing with his children.. Kate had to be a leader to run the household. JON HAS NO LEADERSHIP SKILLS. He is destroying the REAL family and home that Kate built. If Jon really loved his children, he would move back into the house they moved out of. It is still up for sale. He would have room for his children to come visit him.No, Jon has to get a bachelor pad in NYC and come to the new house to PLAY on his ATV and flirt with girls outside the guard gate like a movie star with fan. Jon is a true JERK!!!

    Dear Kate…
    Your kids will ALREADY be dysfunctional because of the way you’ve been treating thier dad all these years…Not to mention how obsesive compulsive you are with them….Quit playing the victim..I’m so sick of this crab ass.

    Rhonda Says:

    It is always Jon’s fault. You can’t treat your husband like Kate treated Jon, berating him over every little thing (they move into a mansion and Kate gives him grief over a receipt and not using a coupon) and have a decent relationship. Like all of you, I have heard that Jon cheated on Kate (wouldn’t blame him) but Jon seems to be the angry and hurt party. Kate says she “melted down” for half a day and had to get back up. Don’t know the real story, but I’m sure its not being told. Kate is a cold hearted *****. Run Jon and take the kids with you!

    Well, the Kate is a victim campaign is off and running. Sometimes I am awed by the degree to which she thinks she can manipulate reality to continue exploiting her children for personal financial gain. Kate is not a victim, but, she is truly a delusional, disgusting, dangerous, decietful dingbat.

    Shame on People magazine for printing such a skewed presentation of what is going on within the Gosselin family…..there is just too much taped, written, verbal truth of events to justify the article. I will never purchase the magazine again.

    JAN #14 – I completely agree with you. Any douchebag who is ‘excited’ about leaving his family to party it up in New York, with his lame as ear piercings and Ed Hardy gear, deserves a swift kick in the junk. Sure, it was both Kate and Jon’s fault for the fall out, but it’s difficult to remedy the situation when one side refuses to communicate with the other. And that’s where Jon dropped the ball.

    anyone in a healthy happy relationship knows that you just don’t speak to your partner like schit, EVER.
    you let the petty stuff go cuz no one is perfect. kate lets nothing go and when people have called her out for being wrong she dismisses it.
    what can you expect from a woman who had never been on a plane until she was 24yr?

    for those people that keep calling jon a douche bag….you must not watch the show, and I mean the earlier years. Kate conformed jon into what she wanted him to be….a housekeeper, the breadwinner, the full time father, and the child….just like she likes it. It’s called obsesive compulsive disorder. She had made jon one of her children. She talked for him, made fun of him, belittled him and made sure she had control over every move he made.
    Jon is not a bad father. I think he came to his senses, and is now making choices on knee jerk reactions, his heart and instinct. I don’t think he’s had a chance to really think long term, and that’s why he’s looking like a frat boy rather than the married man he once was. People,when you are in an abusive relationship, yes, she was emotionally abusive to him, you tend to bolt when you see the light at the end of the tunnel. You tend not to want to endulge in therapy,because you feel you’ve been done wrong and can escape with all that is left of you.
    So for all those who hate Jon, wisen up. He’s man who lost his sole, and is finding out how to breathe again.

    She’s a real piece of work. All the lies her and Jon told (the “renewal of wedding vows”, the trips, the spas, the fake “look at us….we’re in this together” crap). Jon isn’t perfect, but she seems to be a manipulative control freak who only cares about herself. Her line of “doing this for the children” is so twisted. No she’s not. She’s doing it for the $$$. I’d have more respect (I doubt it, but anyway) for her if she said, “hey, we’re doing it for the $$$ and the freebies”…If TLC actually has any shred of dignity left, they will make sure this show doesn’t come back on in August. Their story was told — and it’s done. They are done.
