Meredith Vieira interviewed Kate Gosselin on "The Today Show," and she didn't give Kate, of "Jon and Kate Plus 8," a free pass either. Jon and Kate are going through a divorce, if you didn't know. According to a tabloid cover I saw last weekend, it appears the two are highly compensated for their reality show: $1.5 million annually apiece, it said, which makes it harder for me to feel sorry for the couple (though I still feel for the kids).
Vieira asked a question many wanted an answer to: why does Kate continue to wear her wedding ring. Her answer was that she wears the ring "for them," meaning her eight children. As Kate Gosselin explained on "The Today Show," she wants changes in the lives of her children to be gradual. "I don't want to upset them."
Kate may feel that way, but Jon isn't exactly going slow; he has a highly public relationship with Hailey Glassman, daughter of the surgeon who gave Kate her tummy tuck. Speaking of relationships, Kate Gosselin, when asked on "The Today Show," denied rumors of her own affair with her security guard, Steve Neild.
Interestingly, Jon will appear tonight on E! Considering the relative audience sizes, Kate Gosselin on "The Today Show" will probably score much higher ratings than Jon. Readers, What did you think of Kate's tearfest?
