Kate Gosselin says she's not a celebrity and she's handling rumors of her husband's infidelity in private.
So, naturally, the mother of eight is appearing on every talk show she can!
Following a week where the rumor patrol was out in full force - reporting on an affair between Jon Gosselin and Deanna Hummel, running accusations about Deanna from her brother and even leaking news about a supposed sex tape of Jon's mistress - Kate appeared on Larry King Live last night.
She addressed a number of topics:
On a lack of privacy: "Everyone wants to know everything about us. And I feel like this is a situation where, you know, you can't believe everything that you read. You know that. I know that."
On her kids being exposed to the rumors: "They attend a very quiet, private school where, you know, people aren't paying attention to that. They're investing their time in their kids' education and activities. And, no, they are, at this point unaware. But they are very aware that we love them very much."
Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselln, seen here with their brood of children, are the latest couple to see their relationship tested by a reality TV show.
On Jon's poor judgment: "I am not a celebrity... I am a mom and a wife. And I feel that Jon is having difficult times realizing that, you know, you can't go to the grocery store without people whipping out their cell phones, calling everyone they know and taking pictures of you. He is dealing very poorly with it."
Kate then read the following statement from her husband on-air:
"These allegations are false and just plain hurtful," read the statement. "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'm associating with and where I'm spending my time. The bottom line is I did not cheat on Kate.
I'm sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgments I've made recently. I'm working through this difficult time with my family and my family is my top priority."
