UPDATE: Okay, after denying on Tuesday that she had an affair with her family's bodyguard, Kate Gosselin, of the TLC reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, tells People magazine that her marriage is on the rocks. "I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," Kate tells the glossy celeb mag.

While she doesn't say specifically that they are breaking up, she does say that she could see a future that does not include her husband. "You can't imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months," she says.

The reality in this whole mess is that eight kids are in the spotlight, not because they wanted to be but because their parents put them there. And now they have to go along for this ugly ride. No matter what happens, the kids suffer.

UPDATE: Last week the tabs and celebrity mags were swirling with stories that Jon Gosselin was having an affair with a 23-year-old elementary school teacher. His loving wife said that you just can't believe everything you read and Jon himself vehemently denied the claims. Well, now it's Kate's turn to deny affair claims. Kate says that reports she is having an affair with her bodyguard are absolutely untrue.

"Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified," she said.

Now THIS is reality TV. What will the next revelation be? Stay tuned.

Our friend's at the Juice are reporting that reality show dad Jon Gosselin is indeed having an affair with a 23-year-old elementary school teacher. He was photographed outside a hotel with the woman while his wife was away pitching her new book. We wondered at the time how Kate was able to get Jon to stay at home with all the kids. Maybe getting her out of town was his plan all along.

Now, not to sound cynical, but could this be a ploy to get more viewers to tune into the "reality" show to see whether Jon & Kate can survive? After all, it has been picked up for another season. And since a series on single OctoMom is already in the works, Kate might not want to go that route. But who knows? Maybe those two can get together and raise all the kids under one roof.
