Kate Gosselin does cry every now and then it seems, even if she only allows herself to do so off camera. The TV star recently opened up in a new interview about the hard times she goes through as a single mom with eight kids, and even though it may look like she has her life well handled, she does shed a few tears behind closed doors. People News shares the details on this sad confession from the “Kate Plus Eight” personality this Wednesday, June 25, 2014.

After recently being featured on a TV special focused on her sextuplets that is continuing this week, Kate Gosselin shared that she does cry on occasion about her life and her struggles. The mother of eight said that being a single mom is never “ideal,” and that it’s not easy to look so controlled like she does on the small screen and in front of the media.

“I’m one of many single moms out there. It’s not ideal. On a very busy day where the logistics aren’t lining up — I have to be here to pick this kid up and I have to be there to do whatever, that happens so often now I can’t even tell you.”

Gosselin went on to say that although she feels she has great reason to cry, one of the main reasons she feels the need to stay strong is for her children. News Oxy notes that the TV star noted that she tries to take each and every day in stride, despite life’s challenges and personal struggles. The 39-year-old divorced her husband Jon Gosselin back in 2009; the couple had been together for over a decade. She added that dating is also troublesome because it’s hard to find time to go out with men when her kids require her.

“It’s really easy to feel like just saying, ‘It’s too much. There’s me and there’s eight kids,’” Gosselin revealed in a statement. “I don’t think an hour goes by that I’m not reminded that those odds are completely unbalanced … It was never my intent to portray myself as superwoman. I mean, I cry behind closed doors, I struggle. But I have to remind myself, this is my one shot. You’re going to mess up. Just don’t give up.”

The same source also added that has also added the infamous mom of eight has another reason to cry. Apparently, Kate Gosselin is worried about a new book that’s coming out and allegedly concerns the TV star. In the upcoming book, the author (identified as Robert Hoffman) is claiming that she purposely prepared to try and have a pair of multiple births as part of a frantic desire to become rich and famous.

Do you feel sympathy for Kate Gosselin apparently crying a lot behind closed doors? What are your thoughts to the mom of eight wanting her family to be on a new TV special, and do you think there is any truth to the author's allegations that she is willing to do almost anything to get her name back in the spotlight?
