Jon & Kate Plus 8's Kate Gosselin showed up on The Today Show this morning -- without her husband and kids. Jon Gosselin and their eight children were supposed to join Kate for her interview with Meredith Vieira, but decided to back out at the last minute.
Meredith asked Kate about the allegations that her hubby is having an affair with teacher Deanna Hummel, to which Kate responded, "I'm very hesitant to believe any of it. It goes with the territory."
Kate was on the show to promote her new book, Eight Little Faces, but talked a lot about all the drama going now in the news. She said she's taking everything with "a grain of salt" since "people are being paid to talk."
Us Weekly has an interview from the other woman's brother, in which Jason Hummel says his sister is absolutely getting it on with Jon -- and the mag claims they didn't pay him a cent to say that.
"We're dealing with it privately," Kate said this morning. "It's kind of ironic since we do have a reality show and people see the good, the bad and the ugly. But there are those things we keep to ourselves, and we're working through it together, and that's the important thing."
Jon didn't show, but sent a statement that read: "These allegations are false and just plain hurtful. As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I am associating with and where I am spending my time. But the bottom line is, I did not cheat on Kate. I am sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgment I've made recently. I am working through this difficult time with my family. My family is my top priority."
Kate later said, "We're not perfect. I don't have all the answers... We're doing our best and learning how we go. We just need to weather this storm, just like all the other storms we've been through."
Do you think they will weather this storm together -- or in divorce court?
