By Sassy Smith |

Kate Gosselin is telling her side of the divorce story, giving many interviews, but she’s been very careful not to bash Jon for the sake of their children.  The reality TV mom-of-eight is dishing on her soon-to-be ex’s public displays of foolishness with other women, and how he is emotionally unavailable.


A few highlights from PEOPLE mag via

Said Kate on Jon’s public antics:

“Things may knock me down for a minute, but I get over it and I move on. But I’m horrified for my kids. I’m just very disappointed. It has caused so much stress. I am so emotionally spent, and he is so emotionally unavailable. And I worry: How in the world are my kids going to turn out?”  She added it would be “too soon” for Jon to bring Hailey Glassman around their kids.  Kate said if he did, she’d be “mortified.”

Kate reiterated that Jon has changed and is not the man she married, but gives some insight as to what may have changed.  Namely, aliens.

“Call me crazy, but down deep I still have this hope that one morning the phone will ring and it will be him, back to normal, just saying, ‘Hey, how are you,’ or even, ‘Okay, that was really weird; aliens overtook me, but now I’m back.’” She lets out a guffaw. “I didn’t know how to describe it for a long time, but that explanation seems to work: Aliens have taken him away.”

As for rumors of Kate and her bodyguard, Steve Neild?  They are just that.

“There is not going to be a romance anytime soon for me… I could be alone for the rest of my life, let’s be honest. Where am I going to find someone who wants to enter this weird world?”

Kate has a few regrets about marrying at age 24.

“If I could go back and talk to that young girl, I would say, ‘Don’t do it.’ Of course I wouldn’t change things, because then I wouldn’t have my kids. But that doesn’t mean that other things weren’t regrettable.”

    The last statement is very sad – to wish you could tell your younger self “don’t do it”.

    She sounds so down to earth these days. Maybe the public split and subsequent divorce has humanized her again. This Kate is a much more likable person.

    theres so many websites bashing Kate but i feel bad for her. Sure she put herself in this position by doing a reality show but up until 6 months ago the paps were not followign her around and stalking her house. Only when the tabloids exploded about Jon, did things change for her, and it wasnt her choice. I like her and if i had 8 kids i would act the same way.

  5. [...] Jon Gosselin has eight kids to raise, so he’ll take whatever gig he can get, is that it?  The reality TV father partied it up in Vegas as he hosted a pool party at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic. [...]
