"Jon and Kate Plus 8" star Kate Gosselin sat down with the "Today Show" for her first interview since she and husband Jon announced their split in June.
Gosselin confessed, "I wake up and I do feel a lot of failure." She began to tear-up when Meredith Vieira asked why the mom of eight was still wearing her wedding ring. Kate said she wears the ring for her children, "I don't want to upset them."
Jon Gosselin said the couple's 10-year marriage ended last October. Kate denied Jon's account, saying, "Clearly, we have totally different takes on what happened." In the months prior to the divorce filing, the reality TV mom revealed her husband was not often home, but she said the split was gradual.
Vieira asked Kate about Jon's alleged girlfriend Hailey Glassman. Kate said she was "shocked" when she first heard about the relationship, but she doesn't let it get her down. "That's his life and they don't affect me directly."
