Kate Gosselin is opening up about husband Jon Gosselin, saying she feels a variety of different emotions when it comes to the father of her eight kids.
Somewhat surprisingly, those emotions aren't rooted in bitterness.
On Bethenny Frankel's talk show Bethenny, the 38-year-old says she sympathizes with Jon, who's now working as a waiter in a Pennsylvania restaurant.
"Somebody once told me that if you feel sadness, empathy and pity for someone the root of that is love," the former Kate Plus 8 star said of her feelings.
Jon made headlines last month with the revelation that he's waiting tables to pay the bills. Then, on his way home from work, he was followed by a photographer.
Jon fired a warning shot at the paparazzo, to Kate's dismay. But she struck a sympathetic, non-combative tone on Bethenny regarding her former spouse.
