You've been watching Jon Minus 9 Plus 4 Mediocre Girls.

Now, get ready for Kate Plus 8 and 4 Loud Windbags!

Continuing her recent media tour, Kate Gosselin is going from celebrity gossip fodder to celebrity pundit, joining the growing list of surprisingly topical guest co-hosts for the upcoming season of popular current events gab-fest The View.

Kate will throw in her grating two cents September 14-15, when she sits in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is on maternity leave until October sometime.

TALK SHOW QUEEN: Kate Gosselin (with her bodyguard and rumored lover Steve Neild) departs CNN studios after a lonely appearance last night on Larry King Live.

The irony for Elisabeth Hasselbeck is that the conservative host offered this unsolicited (and typically riled-up) advice to Kate back in June: "get a job!"

Looks like she did. Hers. It's hard to tell which of them is more annoying.

While Jon Gosselin has become the most eligible bachelor around since his split from Kate Gosselin, the latter says she is not ready for romance.

"I am not yet divorced officially," she told Larry King on CNN's Larry King Live Tuesday when asked if she feels single. "I'm lonely, but very busy."

Asked if Jon is a good father, Kate paused a long time before saying: "Yes?"

Very convincing.

Pressed about why she paused, Kate elaborated that she knows Jon is a good father deep down, even if she disagrees with "some of his decisions."

Those would be Hailey Glassman, Kate Major, Stephanie Santoro, etc., etc.

Addressing how the couple's children are handling the split, Kate Gosselin said: "They are starting to understand the process [of divorce]. They are working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They're doing remarkably well."

Gosselin says that like any kids whose parents split, her children wish she and Jon were together, but for now, "My goal is peace and we've achieved that."

Still, Gosselin acknowledged that their life isn't always peaceful. She explained a recent encounter that resulted in the police being called to their home.

"It was not this huge fight," she said. "It was just a thing where I wanted to be there with the kids as opposed to a babysitter. He wasn't fond of that idea."

The babysitter in question? Stephanie Santoro, Jon's rumored play thing.

As for whether the show goes on, Kate would not speak for Jon, who would like to be done filming, but said she plans to keep shooting Jon and Kate Plus 8.

"Myself and the kids will continue the show," she said. "I signed my name to a contract and I am going to do my best to make that work as long as it is healthy for myself and the kids. There could be [another season] or there could not be."

TLC is really unhappy with Jon Gosselin.

But reports suggest that Jon could not care less that "The Lying Channel" is angling for a divorce, since he has his sights set on a new reality show.

Jon is in talks with a major production company to appear in a show called Divorced Dad's Club. Seriously, he is. We wish we could make up stuff that good.

According to TMZ, the show chronicles the lives of famous divorced dads. Producers have spoken to the father of eight, who's concerned about his TLC deal.

Jon Gosselin may have a shot at the new show, given how unhappy TLC is with some of his recent on and away from the cameras of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The network claims that Jon is in violation of the "morals clause" of his contract, partly because he's been seen going in and out of bars and drinking.

And nailing everything that moves, but they likely used nicer language.

  • Grade A Douchebag
  • Jon Gosselin and Kate Major
  • Jon Gosselin, Hailey Glassman
  • Jon Gosselin Ridin'

Drinking, motorcycling, hangin' with his shady friends, screwing anything that breathes and being a general d-bag, Jon Gosselin has fallen out of favor at TLC.

Worse yet, Kate Gosselin is actually picking up the slack. She now has the kids more than 60 percent of the time and is increasingly involved - even when she doesn't physically have the kids - because she's concerned for their welfare.

All the money they made last season from Jon & Kate Plus 8 went into a joint account. Jon and Kate each took a cut, but Jon spent his share. Kate put a big chunk of the money into a college fund for the kids, so not much was left over.

As for this season, sources say a judge gave Kate Gosselin control of the family finances because she was deemed the more responsible party.

Jon has only limited access to the account, and he's not happy. Kate says Jon Gosselin is making money on the side by selling pictures and stories about himself and the kids (like how he was quick to comment on the Stephanie Santoro fight).

No doubt Hailey Glassman is chipping in, as well. What will happen next in this saga? No one knows. Will it be good? No chance. Stay tuned!

Sources close to Jon and Kate Gosselin say their noisy argument last night, which ended with the cops showing up at their house, started after Kate learned that her ex wanted to leave the kids with Stephanie Santoro - a babysitter favored by Jon.

Kate apparently has serious trust issues with Santoro, and doesn't want her playing nanny to the kids. Perhaps because Jon is rumored to be nailing her.

She therefore went to the house to watch the kids instead of Stephanie, and Jon was unhappy to see her, sparking a fight that ended with Kate calling 911.

Jon pretty much confirmed the details this morning at the house.

No comment on whether he's been spending late nights at the bar in Reading, Pa., where Stephanie Santoro works when she's not doing him babysitting.

Kate Gosselin is reportedly not a huge fan of Stephanie Santoro, Jon's personal favorite babysitter and possible new bedpost notch. Hard to imagine why.

Sources close to Kate Gosselin also confirm that she was the one who dialed up the police last night after she and Jon got into a major blowout over this.

Police arrived at the Gosselins' expansive Pennsylvania home shortly after the call was made, but were only at the residence for around 10 minutes' time.

Basically, just long enough to make everyone simmer down. Kate eventually left the house and stayed at a nearby Days Inn, as it was Jon's turn with the kids.

Who sucks more?

Police were called to the home of Jon and Kate Gosselin last night after the soon-to-be divorced spouses got into a heated argument, according to new reports.

One source close to the situation described the situation as such: "Kate showed up at the house unexpectedly during Jon's scheduled time to be with the kids."

As the couple's marriage has unraveled, so has the civility between them in recent weeks. It was quite apparent that Jon Gosselin was not happy to see her.

"Kate couldn't get access to the house. She was upset," said the source.

Tensions between Jon and Kate Gosselin are heating up.

It's not clear who called the police (our money is on Mady and Cara), but witnesses say they heard Jon and Kate arguing audibly. The police arrived but no arrests were made, officials say. Kate Gosselin left and checked into a local hotel.

Perhaps Jon was angered by Kate's media tour this week, during which she's made increasingly scathing remarks about her ex and his post-split lifestyle.

Last night, Kate really gave it to Jon on CNN, primarily for him giving it to new play thing Hailey Glassman - under the same roof as the kids, she alleges!

If so, that's a pretty bold move, Jon. But then again, so is nailing Stephanie Santoro, who's employed as the kids' babysitter when she's not waitressing.

Who sucks more?

She's still wearing a ring, and Regis Philbin said he thinks her separation will end, but don't expect Kate Gosselin to ever get back together with Jon.

On today's Live With Regis and Kelly, Regis caught Kate off guard when he said he thinks Jon Gosselin will want her back and "live happily ever after."

Kate paused, sighed and paused again.

"You know, we definitely have different goals at this point," she said. "A lot has changed. It's not ideal and I can't say that I think you're right at all."

After Philbin continued and asked how she would respond if Jon told her to forget about the past and that he wanted to rebuild a future with her and the kids, she uttered the company line, "We can only go forward; we can't go back."

But the rumored diva said she does want to film more scenes with her ex.

"It's still going to be a lot of Jon and Kate, but it's going to be Jon and the kids and Kate and the kids, she said of the future of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

"I still hold out hope that it will be times where it will be Jon and Kate and the kids. My main goal is to do holidays and things together. I don't know. I'm really going into uncharted territory. I'm going to be with the kids every second I get."

She admitted that while some days are "better" than others, "most days are still difficult. At this point [the split] is starting to sink in."

Kate also said they don't have a "set schedule" for custody of their kids.

"It's based on what I'm doing versus what he's doing," she said, although she could have said who he's doing (Hailey Glassman, Kate Major, etc).

"Surprisingly that is the first peaceful part of it. We do work really well with the kids. I do live in the house with the kids and I disappear on my days off. This is certainly not what I envisioned, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Aww. Kelly Ripa was also very nice to pretend that she likes Kate's reverse-mullet, dead porcupine weave haircut, which made Kate happy.

Kate Gosselin broke into tears on the Today Show this week.

But did the reality star go into diva mode off camera?

Vintage Jon and Kate Plus 8

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.

It looks as if Jon Gosselin won't be speaking out after all.

At least not for the next 12 hours. Even that's something.

He and close pal Kate Major, a former celebrity gossip reporter for Star, were slated to speak with E! News' Ryan Seacrest following the Kate Gosselin Today show interview earlier Monday. But for reasons unknown, it's no longer happening.

On Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for E! said "the interview with Jon Gosselin originally scheduled for tonight’s E! News has been canceled."

Kate Major will still appear, however. Woo hoo.

No explanation was given for Jon bailing, but it may have had something to do with the drama that played out this morning on the Today Show:

  • In part one of Kate Gosselin's interview, she talked about how hurt she was that Jon moved on and started dating Hailey Glassman so fast.
  • In part two of her interview, Kate said she has no regrets about the reality show and vehemently denied having an affair with Steve Neild.

Who sucks worse?

Continuing her revealing interview on NBC's Today Show, this morning, Kate Gosselin says she has never slept with her bodyguard or had regrets about putting her eight children through the reality show that's unraveling before their eyes.

In a the first part of Kate's Today show interview, she talked briefly about how hurt she was by Jon Gosselin and his recent fling with Hailey Glassman.

In the second segment, she denied that her hit show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, contributed to the disintegration of her marriage, even though it totally did.

"It would've happened any way - cameras on, cameras off," she told Meredith Vieira, adding that she has no second thoughts about living her life on camera.

"It's given our kids many opportunities they never would have had," she said. "I don't live my life in regret. I tend to look forward, not backward. And I still feel like this is a good thing. It's healthy and the kids would agree."

We should poll them and find out.

"This is our life. It's the most real reality show you'll see,” she said.

"It is essentially a home video for them. It is their favorite show. They see Mommy and Daddy. I want them to see that each one of them was wanted, loved and cared for."

Not that anyone suggested that their kids weren't loved or cared for, but that's neither here nor there. Anything for a good sound bite, right Kate?

Kate Gosselin also said she is deeply hurt that her brother, Kevin Kreider, began dishing to celebrity gossip tabloids about her marriage and parenting skills and stating that her children are "unhappy" filming the reality show.

"That's probably one of the most hurtful things in all of this, when family turns on you and makes up lies and makes allegations and makes tens of thousands of dollars for doing it," she told Vieira. "This has become a business for them."

She also set the record straight on rumors that she bought a condo in Maryland. Reports surfaced after she visited bodyguard Steve Neild and his wife in Maryland. She did, but there is no condo. Kate also denied an affair with Steve Neild.

"There is no condo. There is no apartment. No one ever looked for one. Nobody ever bought one," she said. "I live at home with my kids. That's where I belong."

Asked by Vieira where she goes when Jon Gosselin stays with the kids at home in Wernersville, Pa., Kate replied, "To be honest, I'm in hiding from the paparazzi."

Appearing on the Today Show in her first TV interview since announcing her separation from Jon in June, Kate Gosselin says she ... is hurt by her ex.

Shocking revelation right there.

Asked about Jon's girlfriend Hailey Glassman, the daughter of Kate's plastic surgeon, the mulleted mother of eight said, "I was shocked, but those things... to be very honest, that's his life and they don't affect me directly at this point."

"It is hurtful. Very hurtful. To be very honest, the most hurtful part is when his decisions directly affect our children. That's the hardest part for me."

Asked if they ever would have split if it were up to her, Kate said "Gosh, who can go back and change? Ideally, parents stay married." Really? Thanks.

"I go back very often to our vow renewal in Hawaii. In that moment, I meant those vows. And there was no option for us other than to be together."

Okay then. The world's most grating human being was equally distant when asked what role she may have played in the disintegration of her marriage.

"Nobody's perfect. I was not perfect," Kate Gosselin said. "Obviously, it takes two. I don't know. What would I go back and change? It's hard to say."

These days, Kate Gosselin is doing "as well as can be expected."

"I am determined to hang in there. What life hands me, I am going to do and deal with. My focus still, as I've always said, is the health and well being of my children, as well as myself." Still, she said she wakes up and feels "a lot of failure."

Her eyes teared up when asked why she still wears her wedding ring.

"For them," she said. "I don't want to upset them. While I've been very real and as honest as I need to be, I don't want to shock them. I've walked slowly through this with them. As they've asked questions, I've answered them."

Kate said she didn't "remember" when Jon moved out, but that the split had been gradual, adding that their "hopes and dreams had become different."

In other words, he hoped and dreamed that one day, he would be freed from her evil clutches and able to go to town on anything else with a pulse. We're just glad Kate wasn't directly asked about last week's Stephanie Santoro rumors.

Jon's new interview, in which he will likely refute all of this, airs tonight on E! Follow the jump for a 10-minute video of Kate Gosselin on the Today Show ...
