Kate Gosselin gives her first TV interview since her marriage ended seven weeks ago.

Kate Gosselin appeared on the "Today" show this morning and opened up about why she still wears her wedding ring. Kate began crying when she told Meredith Vieira that she still wears her ring because "I don't want to upset [the children]." She says her eight kids "know that it's my 'married to Daddy' ring."

Gosselin says that her top priority is "the health and well-being of my children," but admits that when she wakes up, she feels "failure." When asked if she is still in love with Jon, she says: "When I think back to the Jon I knew -- yes, suffice it to say."

She admits that there's more "peace" in the house since Jon left. When asked about Jon's alleged fling with Hailey Glassman, Kate says, "I was shocked. But, to be honest, that's his life."

Do you think Kate is more relatable now that Jon is out of the picture?

I think people wanted this marriage to fail, and that is truely sad.

I think the ended marriage because Kate was so controlling and belittled Jon. Nobody likes being put down by anyone, but when it’s your spouse doing it and the world is watching, something like this is going to happen. I do feel for Kate, only because now she wants back what she had. But she still has more than most of us will ever have. I do hope that after Jon stops living out some wild dream of his, he realizes that he is still a father and helps tend to his kids.

I’m SO behind Kate!!! Being a single Mom is a challenge with one child, but with 8?? Hang in there Kate, your a strong lady and yes… You’ll be fine. I’ve always adored Jon, but his actions are both embarrassing and ridiculous. He needs to quit “ho-ing” around and get a bit more focused on himself. Get a job, focus on your kids, eventually you’ll find another lady who will love you for who you are and now the tabloid coverage you can generate. Kate… you’re right, no one is perfect and you have a nation of people who support you. Never forget that~

Kate deserves to be lonely and miserable - it fits her character perfectly. She treated Jon with such disrespect, as if he was only there to be her slave. She markets her children for $$. What child would choose a life like this? What mother would choose a life like this? All the money & fame will go when TLC cancels the show. When the kids are old enough to pack their own bags, they’ll be gone too. Learning they have been separated for 2 years now is no shocker—but disappointing TLC would continue to show them as together all that time. The Hawaii marriage was such a farce! Boo to Kate - Kudos to Jon for standing up to her, finally.

Give me a break! How can you buy into any of this garbage? She is an awful wife/mother who will step on anyone for any reason to achieve her goal of fame and fortune! She is wearing her ring for the sake of the children? How about being a mom, and being HOME for them. How about giving all this “selling” of your life and misery to the tabloids up and live off of the millions you have already made on the show, and the advertisers, and all the freebee’s that came with it? You do NOTHING for your children! It is all about you Kate, you’re not fooling me!
