After Octomom and Kris Jenner, Kate Gosselin is quite possibly the most-hated mother on TV (or formerly on TV). Before the whole hitting-kids-with-a-spoon debacle arrived, Kate was already being accused of selling out her kids and her marriage in hopes of achieving fame and fortune. The former star of Kate Plus 8 and Dancing with the Stars is now speaking out, telling haters that their accusations are unfounded.
A little over a week after all the crazy rumors broke, Kate Gosselin is finally defending herself in public. The reality star made an appearance on Katie Couric’s show, during which she chatted about life after Kate Plus 8, as well as the reasoning behind her well-publicized divorce.
The naysayers may accuse Kate Gosselin of sabotaging her marriage by agreeing to star in a reality series, but the famous mother says that the relationship would have eventually fallen apart had we “never heard of Jon and Kate Gosselin.” But she understands why people might think otherwise. “A lot of people try to pin reality TV and say, ‘My gosh. It ended in divorce. Big surprise.’ We went through a lot. The signs were always there.”
Kate thinks that part of the pressure leading up to her divorce had to do with her quick introduction to motherhood en masse. “Obviously having eight kids in a short span of time didn’t help…I’m not at all blaming my kids, I’m just saying. The red flags were there.”
What do you think? Were Jon and Kate Gosselin doomed from the start? Or did the world of reality TV have something to do with their divorce? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
