Most women would rather crawl and hide under Matthew McConaughey’s smelly armpit than have to discuss their husband’s infidelity with the world. But, thankfully, Kate Gosselin isn’t encumbered by pride and agreed to share her side of the story for People‘s latest cover story: “WE MIGHT SPLIT UP.”
In response to separation rumors and allegations that hubby Jon has been having an affair with 23-year-old teacher Deanna Hummel, Kate tells People:
“I don’t know that we’re in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing. I’ve been struggling with the question of ‘Who is this person?’ for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It’s one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there’s blaring, red flashing lights.”
She also likened the horror of finding out about her husband’s affair with a baby to, um, the horror of finding out she was pregnant with six babies:
“It’s a lot like when I was first pregnant with the babies, and it was pure shock and denial. But over time I imagined six cribs in my house, and six car seats. When your mind is ready to go there, you can accept any number of scenarios.”
And when you are ready to accept the truth, it also helps to be armed with a stick so you can beat your husband’s ass. Just ask any level-headed therapist.
Kate does have hope, however, that her marriage can be saved. “I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again,” she says.
And if everyone should want to tune in to their reality show to see how they deal with their “marriage in crisis,” the bump in their salaries will certainly jump-start that happiness!
