Kate Finally Has Her Say

It was just yesterday that I was saying that I wanted to hear Kate Gosselin’s side of things in the whole scandal of her husband and father to her 8 children stepping out on her and having an affair with a 23 year old 3rd grade teacher, Deanna Hummel. The story goes so far that Jon has been photographed many times with the woman in suspicious circumstances and doing very suspicious things, such as sunbathing half-naked and not wearing his wedding ring but both of them deny that anything illicit is happening. Deanna’s brother has also come out and confirmed the alleged affair, statements which Deanna argued against just hours later. So what’s Kate’s take on all of this?

She’s talking to talk show hosts all over the country to ‘promote her book’ and ya know, touch on the subject of her cheating husband. Her reaction seems to be very robotic and I personally think this woman is in a great deal of denial. Add to that the fact that she really only seems to be concerned about the children, a big priority no doubt, but her marriage is falling apart and maybe she should tend to that for just a second. From US,

“One week after Us Weekly first broke the news that Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad Jon Gosselin was caught with another woman, his wife, Kate Gosselin, opens up about her husband.

“It’s one of those things that we’re just handling privately,” Kate said on Wednesday’s taping of The Rachael Ray Show. “We’re just taking it one step at a time and I’m trying to walk through it.”

She added: “The focus remains on our kids. It has always been there and will continue to be there. One day at a time, like we’ve always done. One hour at a time, one minute at a time, and my life’s been like that.”

“It’s definitely another learning experience,” Kate said about the recent media attention. “I look at life through the eyes of my kids in that I’ve always said life experiences… I feel like you can learn something from every situation and I am absolutely learning a lot from this.”

Kate said that when she first signed on to do a reality show with her family, she never thought it would come with such negative effects.

“Certainly none of this could have been predicted,” she said. “Now going into our fifth season, we have stepped back and realized that it is part of this process, and I always say there’s really never any going back. We just need to go forward. That is my new saying — just keep on marching through this. Just doing what we need to.”

Instead of focusing on the news — which includes Jon and Deanna spending time together while Kate was traveling in late April — of her husband’s three-month long affair, she said she is putting her attention on her eight children.”

The Daily Blabber has even more of Kate’s denial from her interview on The Today Show just this morning. Kate seems to think that people were paid to talk but I don’t think that anyone paid Jon to be seen sneaking out of his girlfriend’s house or being seen drunk without his wedding ring on. Strangely enough, Jon and the children didn’t appear on the show although they were scheduled to come. I guess Jon realized that no one would believe him anyway and that’s a great deal of shame and lies to carry around in front of everyone. From Daily Blabber,

“Meredith asked Kate about the allegations that her hubby is having an affair with teacher Deanna Hummel, to which Kate responded, “I’m very hesitant to believe any of it. It goes with the territory.”

Kate was on the show to promote her new book, Eight Little Faces, but talked a lot about all the drama going now in the news. She said she’s taking everything with “a grain of salt” since “people are being paid to talk.”

Us Weekly has an interview from the other woman’s brother, in which Jason Hummel says his sister is absolutely getting it on with Jon — and the mag claims they didn’t pay him a cent to say that.

“We’re dealing with it privately,” Kate said this morning. “It’s kind of ironic since we do have a reality show and people see the good, the bad and the ugly. But there are those things we keep to ourselves, and we’re working through it together, and that’s the important thing.”

Jon didn’t show, but sent a statement that read: “These allegations are false and just plain hurtful. As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I am associating with and where I am spending my time. But the bottom line is, I did not cheat on Kate. I am sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgment I’ve made recently. I am working through this difficult time with my family. My family is my top priority.”

I don’t buy Jon’s whole, “I didn’t know I had such an impact and that people cared so much about my life routine.” This show is going into their 5th season (well, scheduled to anyway) and I find it hard to believe that he’s still getting used to life in the public eye. My prediction is that if Kate really is in this much denial about it, it’s going to suck the air right out of her when the truth hits home and neither she, nor their marriage, will be able to work it out.
