Kate Gosselin is getting ready to make a comeback to reality television with a new series. At the same time, she’s also preparing to get back into the dating game so, as they say, now’s the time for one final look back.
Kate was on Katie Couric’s new show, “Katie,” to talk about her failed marriage to Jon Gosselin, with whom she launched to fame on their TLC reality show “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” how the show didn’t end their marriage and which are her biggest regrets from that time.
Below, embedded at the end of this article, are two videos: a preview for the show and a fragment in which Kate talks about her much criticized “drill sergeant attitude” from back in the day, which is also the reason why people still say, to this day, that Jon was lucky to get out of the marriage when he did.
This is one of Kate’s regrets, that she let the small things bother her to such an extent that she made the lives of others a nightmare.
“I have been through a lot… Sorry [Tears up]. So when you’ve gone through a lot you realize what’s important,” Kate says of her strict attitude back in the day.
“I’m learning to let the little stuff go. Yeah. I feel, like everybody, as you get older... you mature. My heart was always in the right place,” she adds.
In the same interview, Kate talks about her doomed marriage to Jon and stresses that it would have ended either way, with or without a reality show.
In other words, their divorce was not a result of the so-called “reality show curse” but rather a consequence of their relationship running its course.
“A lot of people try to pin reality TV and say, ‘My gosh. It ended in divorce. Big surprise.’ We went through a lot. The signs were always there, and obviously having eight kids in a short span of time didn't help that. And I'm not at all blaming my kids, I'm just saying,” Kate says, as cited by Us Weekly.
“I know the red flags were always there. So looking back, had you never heard the names Jon and Kate Gosselin, I'm certain that I would be in that spot now. It's hard because like any mom I just want the best for my kids,” she adds.
Even though her first marriage didn’t turn out to be a fairytale, Kate is yet to lose hope in love. If anything, she believes she might be given a second go at it with her new dating reality series.
Why has she not gone away? She was mean to Jon on national TV, no wonder he cheated! (Why is she not seen for who she is?). She has made a lot of money when there are other women who have had twins, triplets, etc? Why is she considered more special than they are?
Oh no, PALEASE people, who is wasting their money on this show? Sad that even T.V. execs are too stupid to realize this is gonna be canceled before the first season is over. She is OVER. People are not going to waste their time watching her anymore. It was taking care of all of those babies, that was interesting to watch, NOT HER & not now that the kids are older. It's OVER. It's run it's course.
Here's the deal - it was a fun, wholesome, story to watch, when they were working hard, together, as a team, raising a family.
It all changed when Kate started thinking she was a celebrity & John started showing people that he wasn't just the nice, hard working father. He was just an idiotic shmoe & she, a money grubbing, selfish, mean, low class piece of trash. - When their personal lives showed the REAL THEM, that's when viewing audiences decided they weren't just a nice, young couple, trying to make it, which made everyone root for them. They changed when they started making money & thinking they were some kind of celebrities!
That's it. You can't change that image now, it's OVER. YOU'RE OVER.
All Kate's dirty laundry will finally get out completely, people keep giving this woman the golden egg and not understanding the damage she has caused with her children and the attitude she carried, using everyone, abusing everyone, extreme nastiness period and Kate gets rewarded for being nasty, GOD don't like ugly and Kate's time is coming when she least expect it, what goes around what you do and did in life, will come around a bite that * . Kate might be getting her cake and eat it too, but it will spoil and get stale when that reaping time comes and she want be able to take it. Bravo Network and its producers if this the network providing to evilness fell down and bumped its head.
If she wants to have fun by dating - she should just do it. Don't need cameras, people do it everyday without them. She's not looking for fun, looking for big bucks. This woman will abuse and exploit her children and husband for a dollar. What a loser! Please, Kate just go away.

I' m so shocked that Katie Couric would waist her time putting Kate Gosslin on her show. I hope the ratings sucked. Miss Gosslin, you deserve all the crap that comes your way. Be like octomom, and do porno if you like the cameras, because most of the main stream public don't want to see you in any shape or form.
