Kate Gosselin‘s appearance on “Live with Regis and Kelly” Thursday started off pleasantly enough. There was a little bit of back-and-forth about “Jon & Kate Plus 8” and some polite talk about Kate’s separation from husband Jon.
And then Regis Philbin decided it was high time that these two crazy kids got back together, and that led to a couple of excruciatingly awkward minutes of morning TV. (I would’ve given a good amount of money to see how fellow guest Jon Hamm, who’d been on the previous segment, reacted.)
“I just have a feeling like, I think the separation is going to come to an end, I think he’s going to come back and he’s gonna say ‘Please, marry me again,’ and I think you’re going to live happily ever after,” Philbin said. “What do you think of that?”
“Wow,” Gosselin replied with an uncomfortable laugh. “He’s an optimist.”
It only got more squirmy from there. Take a look:
