A source claims the two split after arguing over Labor Day Weekend. Jeff reportedly got “cold feet” about filming for ‘Kate Plus 8.’ He’s a divorced father with three kids from his previous marriage and didn’t want the exposure of reality TV. Even before the holiday weekend, Kate was said to be “frustrated” with the amount of time he spent traveling apart from her.
Jeff is now said to be dating a 26-year-old woman from Belarus who is fluent in five languages and plans to launch her own cosmetics line this year. OUCH. Kate is said to be “devastated.”
I can’t help but feel sorry for Kate. Watching her on TV, she can come across as so incredibly abrasive that it’s hard to find her, well, likeable, but think about her situation. She is the single mom of EIGHT kids. Her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, can’t even offer financial support or take the kids for long stretches of time because his employment seems variable and he seems to have trouble maintaining stable housing. She is not in an easy situation: she seems to be struggling to survive.
I’m not sure I’d be all that nice either if I was in her shoes; I’d have to put all of my energy into making it through the day.
