EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEAK: Jon & Kate Plus 8 on Ladies Home Journal via Popeater

Hello Gosselin Fans! Back in January I was the first to tell you about the adorable book Eight Little Faces:. Well its scheduled to be released April 14th, the same time as the beautiful Ladies Home Journal article. "The Truth About Their Marriage" will be THE magazine you will want to pick up...

1. Did he REALLY cheat on Kate?
2. What about season 5 and beyond??

Here are some excerpts from the interview -

Jon, on his life now: "I spend my whole life counting to eight."

Kate, on the popular series: "Our show is the realest reality show there is. You get the good, the bad and the ugly."

How Kate deals with it all: "Pressure is my middle name."

Kate, after having twins, Cara and Maddy: "I had everything I had ever hoped and prayed for."

Would she return to the quieter, pre-sextuplet and camera days? I wouldn't ... We think of the TV show as our family job, one that lets us stay home together."

Jon, on photos of him with several college girls, whom he calls fans: "I am not perfect. This struggle has definitely put some tension in our marriage. But I never cheated on Kate. Kate and I are together."

Their crazy lives now, according to Jon: "Kate and I have maybe 10 minutes together while we're cleaning up the kitchen, but other wise it’s the kids and the show and meetings and, well, see you next Christmas, Kate."

What Kate thinks of her success: "I don't get it. I'm just a mom who's doing her best -- not unlike moms every where. I just happen to have a few more kids than the average."

I can't wait to read the article in full! The Gosselins seem to be answering some tougher questions these days instead of the old constants! It only makes them more relatable to me!

Even though there were only snipits of the interview, their responses, actually Jon's response makes me hope that they are keeping their priorities straight. God, marriage, children, job. Every marriage has struggles and tension, theirs has a unique set of circumstances. However, if they let to much tension and distance form between them it is not good!

Praying for them!

Those new pictures are so stinkin cute!!!! Hannah's hair is getting so LONG!!! It's so cool watching these kids grow up. I'm praying Jon & Kate will get through this rough patch, but at least he is being straight about it and he admits he isn't perfect. No one is. Can't wait for the new book!!!!

Babymama AWESOME they look so adorable! Mady looks beautiful I think she is going to grow to be soooo pretty before our very eyes as she gets older! I think it's great that Jon & Kate are so down to earth with their fans, most celebs would let their "people" do everything and make statements I think it's is great they can come out and say whatever they need to say even when they don't have to go further into their personal lives. I'll be sure to pick up the mag. Can you believe I am JUST NOW reading Multiple Blessings?! I have been under the weather for the past few weeks and their book is so very inspiring even to me going through a completly different personal life experience, the words on the pages really speak of hope to me, I can't put it down, hopefully I'll be getting it autographed soon :)
I should be catching up to the Monday night repeats soon on my blog thank you for your kind words and I just love your blog on all things Gosselin!!

Baby Mama said...

Thank you girls for coming and supporting as usual. Its been fairly quiet recently and its nice that I can still come on and have some good info to share. I see many new followers and I'm happy that people can come here and read......

However, NOT happy that its taken to other hate sites and swiped knowing full well its without permission. The WAR IS ON! Sorry I'm not allowing the Moon Loonies to take my fan photos and snark at them on their hate blog. NOT HAPPENING. I work too hard on this site and I'm glad to say I'm no pushover! Thanks for listening and hope to have some more good stuff up soon! xoxoxo

Awesome article. It is amazing how much the kids have grown in one year!

Cathy said...

Kate made mention of their new helper. Do you think that the person is her mom?

dancnmommy said...

These are awesome pics!! Definitly pictured before the braces...unless they were airbrushed out :) But they are all getting so big. Cara is such a pretty little girl. And the boys all look so cute. Collin reminds me so much of my youngest.

But did anyone else see that in pic number 9 on the bottom it says Collin but I think that is Joel.? Could be just the angle but I the smile and hair look like Joel.. :)

Anyway...great job BabyMama!! Cant wait to buy the mag.

CBB said...

looks like a fun article! Thanks for keeping us in the loop, as usual :)

CBB said...

just noticed the green in the picture...did Collin break his finger?

Lisa said...

I look forward to getting the magazine. I tried to click where it says to see the photos and it did not work how do I get to see the photos.

M.M.S. said...

Cute pics! What's wrong with Collin's hand?! :-(

Shelly said...

OMG!! To darn cute. Poor little Collin and his hand. Wonder what he did. But, it is Joel who said "I fall down everyday". LOL :)

Anya said...

Thanks, Babymama.

I agree with the others, what a beautiful picture. I love the white and the way the photo is composed.

It is nice to hear them addressing the newer issues that have crept into their lives more recently with the move and Kate's speaking engagements, etc.

Also, I appreciate you are not a pushover. It must be the New Yorker in you, but don't waste too much energy tussling with that hate site. The proprietor is a sad person full of venom and is clearly looking to make a buck out of all her free time. She really isn't worth your time. Just my opinion.

Oh so excited to read the new article in full. I also am so glad for some new answers to new questions. Those of us who follow the show have heard the same thing rehashed many times so I reiterate the gladness over new q & a's for all of us. :) Pics were awesome and yes I like seeing them growing bigger as well. My wish for them is more time for Kate and Jon together. It's kind of sad to see Jon say their so busy that they rarely see each other. I mean I'm sure his "see you next Christmas, Kate" was joking but even still....

Lindsay said...

Those pictures of the kids are so cute! I can't believe how old they are getting- almost 5!

Jessica said...

Is it just me or does Maddy look a little photoshopped in there? and I think whoever captioned the photos mixed Collin and Joel up. Twice. But I guess not everyone is crazy obsessed about the Gosslins like some of us.

Baby Mama said...

I'm wondering too when these were taken, as something appears to have happened to poor Collin & Mady is sans braces. Her teeth looked good though! I wonder if this perhaps will be an episode for next season???

Anya,
Ohh don't worry about me! That nasty troll can spew as much hate as she wants. Jealousy can eat you alive and I know it does to alot of them. Why? Its sad when people go on trash sites like that just so they can spew tasteless profanity and outright lies about people. They start off going there to slam the show, then attempt to talk about this fan site like they know me or anything for that matter.....People who THINK they know everything are especially annoying to those of us who do (lol).

Cathy - I think the new helper is their new nanny/helper that has chosen to remain off camera. At Penn state Jon mentioned that she was Asian like most of the family. :-)

Teresa said...

The pictures are fabulous! Everyone looks great. I look forward to reading the full article.

Poor little Collin :(.

Baby Mama - You don't have to tell me that you are no push-over... I know first hand ;-).

Anya said...

"Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you respond to it."

I totally agree. Wise words.

nancy said...

Nice recap on the article in Ladies' Home Journal. It's nice to read an article without negative comments. The photos were great too, I wonder what happened to Collin...

Alisa George said...

Did this issue ever come out? I have been looking for it since last week....

Baby Mama said...

I just purchased it yesterday at my Supermarket and from why I have been told its been flying off the shelves. Its a great cover with alot of good articles and you should look for it.
