The TLC reality star tells Katie Couric about her past, some of the regrets she has had, and a new reality show she is working on about dating.
Kate Gosselin tells Couric that even though she ended up divorcing husband Jon, it was not because of their TLC reality show, “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” but does have other regrets.
“I have been through a lot… sorry,” she says as she begins to cry. “So when you’ve gone through a lot you realize what’s important,” the mother of 8 adds 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,” Gosselin adds.
As she gets emotional with Couric, the TLC reality star appears to break out in hives, as a red rash begins to appear on her neck. She goes onto explain however, that her marriage would have ended wether the two appeared in a reality show or not.
“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,” she added.
She then collects herself after talking about her divorce and moved onto giving details on a new reality show she has been working on about her dating life.
“It is true,” Gosselin said. “After a few years and realizing my barriers to dating and loving TV and the experiences … I feel like honestly, that was my idea! I would do it! But I think it would be fun and allow me to meet people and have fun. It will show my fun side. I think it would be really fun.”
