Kate Gosselin Thinks Her Marriage Was Doomed With Or Without Reality TV

October 05, 2012 08:15 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

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!

    Yes the marriage was doomed. Unfortunately Kate disrespected her husband horribly. Jon didn’t rise to the occasion of leader because he just wanted to have fun and there was no motivation to lead when he received disrespect at every turn.

    Why is this even news. She stated the exact same thing on the final show of Kate Plus 8, over a year ago. It’s just old recycled news.

    It was doomed! She is rude and critical. She can’t even hide her disrespect. She not only disrespected her husband, she is disrespectful to everyone she comes in contact with. Her ‘marketing team’ has to tell her to cool it! She is an overt narcissist and will NEVER put those children first.

    It’s so easy to throw stones when you have never walked a step in Kate’s shoes. Jon was worthless….so clueless as to what to do with one kid let alone 8!!! I don’t agree with everything she did but COME ON people…..you have 8 kids to feed pretty much all at once, yes you are going to do a tv show to feed and educate them! Get real people. i’d take Kate over Kris Jenner and Octomom anyday!!!!

    Well, any marriage would be doomed when one is always disrespectful and had a narcissistic personality.

    If she knew then why the charade of the marriage renewal in Hawaii.

    Why leave your husband and children to go on a book tour about your family.

    Why leave your children continually to go on another reality show and more book tours when they suffered through the divorce (you were not the only person affected).

    Jon may have not had a clue at first but he was not the one who took his issues out on his partner and children. Kate continually took it out on other people including her husband, children, family and friends.

    I think it is telling when her own family NEVER came to her defense yet Jon’s did.

    Notice how Kate’s family that was around in the beginning of the show QUICKLY drifted away and how many of her so called friends drifted away.

    The only people she had near the end were mostly PAID staff. A security guard she just had to have for herself. If it was for the children then why have him on her book tours when it was only her. A paid baby sitter who obviously could not stand her. A friend who even seemed like she could not stand her and rolled her eyes.

    Yeah Kate is the saint and only she has ever had a bunch of kids in a short time and exploited them so well.

    Please keep coming to her defense to explain away or excuse her horrid behavior.

    She has always wanted to be famous, and her only way to do it way to has six kids all at once. She saw the couple in Iowa get famous,that was her way of getting famous. Is she every home? She has money for her clothes and shoes and Trips to New York and California. But no money for a vacation for her kids. So she wines she doesn’t have money for that, someone pays for the trip to the beach for she and her kids. She buys a new bathing suit for herself. But she has no money for trips for the kids. She needs to go away along with Chris Jenner and othamom. I’m tired of her and her worthess ex husband. I think he and his friend were doing the book for money. Since he can’t pay child support.

    Yes, when you scream at your husband in public in front of cameras…your marriage is going to be doomed. He took as much as he could.
    She would demand he help with the kids’ discipline, but when he did she overode him. What’s the point.
    That lady is going to be lonely, because when the kids get old enough, they’ll bail too.

    At first the show was adorable. Kate was the most organized lady I have even heard about. It was also obvious that she and Jon had some great times together….especially in the bed.
    Problems with camera’s around all the time, that in itself is stressful. Women that watched the show saw how awful Kate treated Jon in front of cameras-the grocery store, “HELLO” screaming across the store-I felt so sorry for John, and when they traveled the way she treated him. It probably was “Doomed” from the beginning. The more she pulled those stunts the more you could see her husband withdraw. Who would’n want all of the ladies that gave him attention and after he danced with a few Kate yelled, “You spent 40.00?
    Don’t think the rest was on tv. It was fun to watch until the other entered in. She surely wore the pants.

    Kate was a very structured Mom – but she had to be with so many children the same age. I get so tired of all the criticsm. Crabby sometimes, of course, who wouldn’t be.
