Jon & Kate Gosselin Mark One Year Since Split

by at . Comments

It has now been a year since the marriage of Kate and Jon Gosselin ended.

The weeks prior to the tearful, on-air confessionals confirming the split (and garnering record ratings) on Jon & Kate Plus 8 were a train wreck of epic proportions.

Rumors of Jon nailing his pal Deanna Hummel were the first to surface. Then Kate and Steve Neild. Then Jon and Hailey Glassman, Stephanie Santoro, and so on.

As their family crumbled under the microscope of celebrity gossip magazines and websites, Kate acknowledges there were difficult moments for their eight kids.

"[Nine-year-old daughter Cara] was upset with me because I forgot to sign them up for something at school," Kate tells People in its new cover story this week.

HAPPY DAZE: Jon and Kate Plus Eight, Minus Bitterness.

"I said, 'Cara, I had a really rough year. This is a new year. You've got to give me that. Let's start over.' So I've really worked to keep my word with them."

In general, Kate says, her children – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel – have weathered the storm well.

"They're just amazing, resilient, loving kids."

The reality TV mom and her children will return to TLC in a new, revamped Kate Plus 8, airing June 6. The family recently filmed the show in Orlando, Fla.

There, they also celebrated the sextuplets' sixth birthday. Back home, they also got to see dad ... and were introduced to Jon's new girlfriend Ellen Ross.

Poor kids. Hang in there, y'all.


I am so tired of everyone being down on Jon. Isn't it enough that Kate never gives him credit for anything and tears him down all the time still. The stupidest thing he ever did was marry that phony witch and put up with her crap for ten years. He hasn't done anything worse than any of these other idiots. I only wish my father had been half of the father he is. No, he isn't perfect, but he was there for her and the kids for alot of things. For gods sake, Kate never gives him a break, maybe everyone else can. Hailey Glassman is a lowlife scum bag. You don't go in front of millions of people on national tv and make fun of the size of someone's genitals. That's about as low as you can get. Her mother isn't any better when Hailey says they laughed about it. Give the poor guy some space. I miss seeing him. I would so much rather see him with the kids then HER!


The new show still has the retarded girl on...She should be kept in the closet when the film crew is there.., I am speaking of Maddy...The older she gets, the worse it is.. if thats possible


Absolutely will NOT be watching this show. Makes me sick to see her fake act on short bits of t.v. trash shows let alone a full segment of it. If she focused on the well-being of her children half as much as she does on her self-promotion, those kids would have one heck of a mom! Amazing how many people fall for her crocodile tears.


I think leaving john was the best idea for kate and the kids...i mea ni feel sorry for the kids because they probably miss their dad. But john and kate fought all the time and that not healthy for a relationship!!!
