Jon and Kate Gosselin of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" are on the covers of People AND Us Weekly this week as their marriage comes under fire. The pair and their eight kids are the stars of the TLC reality show chronicling their Pennsylvania home life.

People has an exclusive interview with Kate Gosselin who admitted her marriage is struggling.

"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."

The name to which Kate refers belongs to 23-year-old Deanna Hummel, whose brother later claimed she'd been having a months-long affair with Jon.

The affair was reported on LAST week's Us Weekly's cover as well as the issue a week before that.

Also on Tuesday Kate denied reports that she was having an affair with her bodyguard, and it appears to have been a preemptive strike against Us Weekly, which again has her on the cover this week.

From their cover story:

Kate Gosselin grew so close to her bodyguard, Steve Neild, it caught the attention of her husband, Jon -- and has become the talk of many locals in their Berks County, Pennsylvania, community. Since May 2008, Kate has made 50 public appearances, criss-crossing the country, often with Neild by her side, as Jon stayed home with the kids. Even when at home -- whether at Starbucks or at restaurants -- Neild has been a constant companion to Gosselin, who is estranged from her family and viewed in town as not having friends.

"He threatened to hire a private investigator," a family source informed by Jon Gosselin tells Us.
