According to Kate Gosselin, 35, there is still a great deal of post-divorce stress between her and her ex-husband, Jon, 32. During an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday she spoke with Kelly Ripa and guest host Anderson Cooper about her concerns for their eight children.
It’s…you know,” she said. “I do try to keep it as peaceful as possible.” The level of tension “depends on the day.”
The greatest point of contention seems to involve the time the children spend at their father’s home. Kate claims, “I basically wait for the phone call from how many of them want to come home.” She then went on to say that Jon’s apartment “is not [their] home; it doesn’t feel like home to them … they want to be at home — in their house.” She lives nearby in Wernersville, Penn.
It may be that their difficulties arise from the newness of the situation. Kate pointed out that the latest visitation schedule (part of their custody arrangement) is still “new to us. It’s only been three months that he’s actually been spending time with them and taking them.”
After seeing his ex-wife’s appearance on television, Jon defended himself via Twitter.
As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly, I will refrain. I have learned from the past that it’s a waste of my time and energy. I am ‘rising above’, and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children. My children and the people in my life know the truth, and that is what’s important.”
