Kate Gosselin covers Life & Style as an 'Out of Control Monster' and Us Weekly as a 'Train Wreck' this week. Tuesday Jon Gosselin announced his plans to sue ex-wife and "absentee mom" Kate for custody of their eight children and reversal of the spousal support payment.
Us reports on Kate's diva behavior on the 'Dancing with the Stars' set. Apparently it has gotten so out of control that the show's staffers have to contact her through her bodyguard.
"When the show needs to contact Kate, they go through Steve," a source told the magazine. "She acts like a major celebrity. It's a joke with the cast, like, 'Oh, look out -- the bodyguard is watching!'"
Life & Style has excerpts from Kate's new tell-all book in which she publishes letters detailing her children's issues with the divorce:
Life & Style has exclusively obtained a copy of Kate Gosselin's new book, entitled 'I Just Want You to Know: Letters to my children on Love, Faith and Family.' In the tome, Kate pens a deeply personal letter to each of her eight children. Among the secrets, Life & Style can reveal Kate finally owns up to bullying her ex-husband. "Much of what I said to Jon was unwarranted," she admits. "I could have watched what I said better, I could have guarded my tongue better. I wanted to communicate better, but I often failed." Besides not asking for help and berating Jon, Kate writes that she didn't take enough responsibility for day-to-day planning for the family. "I also didn't focus on the fact that much of the responsibility for our children, the finances, the schedules and the decisions about the future was on me."
In her letter to son Aaden, she apologizes for taking away his dad. "I do not possess the skills to father you," she writes. "But I will do everything I can to show you the way." And she even apologizes for ruining her once perfect family. Writing to son Collin, Kate cruelly implies that the 6 -year-old has a fear of abandonment -- and that her split with Jon has hit him the hardest. "I will never leave you," she writes to him. "I know that all the recent events in our family structure have greatly upset you, maybe you most of all. When I leave for work, I will always come back."
On page after page, Kate recounts in vivid detail each child's suffering because of the divorce. However, Kate doesn't seem concerned about how her kids will react to the book. "She's back in diva mode," an insider confirms to Life & Style. "She's not the sweet, humble woman she's been pretending to be."
