Kate Gosselin broke into tears on the Today Show this week.
But did the reality star go into diva mode off camera?
That's what one source claims, though Today denies it.
"We get virtually all of the world's biggest egos coming through here, but Kate Gosselin was one of the most unpleasant I've seen in working here for many years," a supposed Today insider told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The source claims that Kate trashed Meredith Vieira for asking about her relationship with Steve Neild, her bodyguard, and was "swearing like a sailor."
If that were true, Kate certainly did a great job of holding it together on camera - and she's not the type to hold back. Her grating criticism of husband Jon was as central a part of Jon and Kate Plus 8 as their adorable children.
Did Kate Gosselin flip the f*%k out on Meredith Vieira?
It's likely there is nothing to this rumor in the end. A statement from the Today Show regarding these accusations suggests they are all made up.
The statement reads:
"These comments are completely and totally false and are certainly coming from bad sources. Kate Gosselin was a gracious guest on Today and anyone within a thousand feet of her at the show yesterday morning could tell you that."
Moreover, the statement says: "It is unfortunate that a newspaper (the Sun-Times) would run these lies, which couldn't be further from the truth."
So Kate is vindicated. Though we imagine she may swear like a sailor if she reads our story about Jon's apparent promotion of underage drinking.
