'Jon & Kate Plus 8' mom Kate Gosselin blames Jon for 'tension'

Kategosselin_jonandkateplus8_290 Kate Gosselin of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" fame believes in her man, but that doesn't mean she's letting him off the hook for causing this hoopla in the first place.

In an interview with EW, Jon Gosselin declares, "I am not guilty of cheating on my wife," and reiterates that he was just hanging out with his friend Deanna Hummel.

Finally, Kate gets her say:

"It's disturbing and unfortunate that these tabloids have gone as far as they have to try and bring us down. Jon's poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us."

Fans of the show know that Kate has often been painted as the villain, nagging and hounding Jon for various slights. If this is everyday marital behavior, then the Gosselin home must be a very chilly, chilly tundra right now.

"Jon & Kate Plus 8" returns to TLC with its fifth season on Monday, May 25. The tabloid stories won't be addressed specifically, but may get an overall mention on how the public focus has affected their lives.
