Kate Gosselin is speaking out against rumors that her kids were traumatized by their stint on Celebrity Wife Swap – or that she slammed Kendra Wilkinson.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star and Kendra star traded places Tuesday night, setting a ratings record but receiving considerable flak as well.

At least in Kate Gosselin‘s case. No surprise there.

Kate Gosselin Defends Celebrity Wife Swap, Praises Kendra

Certain comments she made appeared unnecessarily critical of K-Dubs, while rumors started flying that her kids hated the experience and were traumatized.

How does she respond to those allegations?


Kate tells celebrity news show Extra that they’re false, and in the clip above, has nothing but glowing praise for Kendra – and her husband Hank Baskett.

She said ABC’s editors probably tried to highlight the differences between them for effect, but there is no feud with the Playboy model, only respect.

As for the kiddos, she says they were on board with CWS and had a blast … which is not actually hard to believe considering they got Kendra for a week.

She may be the epitome of laid back.

Case closed? Seven million people watched, so the joke is on her critics. Good luck to Mark McGrath and Coolio next week, trying to top that figure.
