She’s embroiled in a public scandal involving her husband, Jon Gosselin, with another woman, and Kate Gosselin tells PEOPLE in its latest cover story that she and her spouse have been on the rocks for months.
“I don’t know that we’re in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing,” she says quietly. “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.”
Kate is referring to 23-year-old Deanna Hummel, whose brother later claimed she’d been having a months-long affair with Jon.
Kate, who once referred to Jon as “my balance, my strength and my stability” is now considering separation. “You can’t imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months. 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.”
On a positive note Kate adds, “I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again.”
What do you think? Will Jon & Kate split?

Oscar-winner and mom-of-two Kate Winslet graces the cover of the June issue of UK’s Marie Claire.
In the interview Kate recalls her childhood struggle with her weight and adds, “Even now I do not consider myself to be some kind of great, sexy beauty. I don’t mind the way I’m ageing. No reason to panic just yet. I think I look my age, and that’s fine.”
Kate, who is mom to kids Mia, 8, and Joe, 5, recently announced that she is suing London’s Daily Mail for libel, saying that a “very unpleasant and nasty” recent article “injured her personal and professional reputation.”
The piece was written in response to a recent interview Kate, 33, did with Elle magazine, in which she said, “I don’t go to the gym because I don’t have time, but I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home.”
The Daily Mail‘s response? “[Kate] has become, in my opinion, as drippy and as impossibly vain as the rest of them,” writes the author. “She caught a nasty dose of Hollywooditis. It happens to the best of them, of course it does. It is the duplicitousness that enrages me and most other women I have spoken to.”
Interestingly, Kate touches on media criticism in general in Marie Claire, saying, “They just go for the personal now in a way I think can be really crushing.”
