It's been 10 years since Jon & Kate Plus 8 first aired, and this week Kate Gosselin told People that if she could go back and do it all over, she'd try to have fewer "meltdowns." But other than that, she has no real regrets (not even that haircut? Come on). In an interview with the magazine, Gosselin admitted:
If I could go back, I wouldn't spend so much time worrying about the messes and the obsessive compulsiveness and needing to be so in control. I would spend more time nibbling little feet and cuddling up. I worried about so many things I just didn't need to be worrying about when they were still so young, and I came on way too strong. I should have just rolled around on the floor some. I wouldn't have melted down as much.
Viewers of the show (and readers of tabloid headlines) will remember just how harried Gosselin usually seemed, but hi, she had EIGHT children. That's like an octopus made of kids. Gosselin had twins, and then she and her then husband Jon decided to try for one more child, only because of artificial insemination, that one more ended up being six.
How does a person even deal with having six babies at once? And then having life with those six babies (and two other young children) televised? So yes, Gosselin did seem a little uptight at times, but again, EIGHT CHILDREN (nine if you count her ex-husband Jon).
