Kate Gosselin never wanted it to be this way. But it is. Thank goodness!
Jon & Kate Plus 8 came to an end Monday in an emotional series finale.
Having shut down the show thanks to Jon Gosselin's gripes about himself his children being mistreated, TLC made no secret that it's on Team Kate.
Via heavy Kate commentary, the door definitely hit Jon on the way out.
"They don't know about girlfriends at all," Kate said, referring pointedly to her kids' knowledge of Jon's on-off significant other, Hailey Glassman.
"That's just too warped for them, too unhealthy for them to know. They learn by watching us, and that's the last thing I want them to know."
"I just think that relationship is a situation that's just a symptom of the real issue, so ... I don't envision a future there involving my kids at all."
Oooh, snap. You got served, Jon.
Try not to weep openly at work.
"I do worry about his intentions and his motives for such things," she said. "Always wondering, is this a publicity stunt? What is the bottom line of it?"
Despite all the animosity, Kate Gosselin says that she never meant to become a single parent, and wishes it had never come to this earlier this year.
"When I'm driving to get school supplies with the kids or to try on shoes or anything that you've seen us do recently, it always crosses my mind that I should be in the passenger seat and Jon should be driving ... every single time."
"I never wanted that to change. Maybe I wanted roles to change, and people to step up, but I never wanted him absent from that driver's seat."
As for Jon, he's embracing this single parent douchebag thing.
"Those are precious times," he said, referring to the years they spent shooting Jon & Kate Plus 8, "and it is unfortunate our marriage failed, but our family should not fail. We're going to strive to do better and be the best parents we can."
"But we're definitely not going to be married ever again."
