'Jon & Kate' split 8? Is divorce imminent?

Jongosselin_kategosselin_29 The pressures have mounted on TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8" couple -- enough so that the previously unflappable Kate Gosselin has cracked and is expressing doubts about her marriage and negative feelings towards her husband Jon and his alleged mistress, Deanna Hummel, reports People.

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she tells the magazine. "I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights."

Although Kate isn't giving up hope on her marriage completely, she has considered a future without her husband: "You can't imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months."

Meanwhile, Usmagazine.com continues to claim that cheating is happening on both sides, following up on reports that Kate and her bodyguard Steve Neild have more than just a professional relationship.

An unnamed employee at one of TLC's promotional events for the show observes that they were "very physical, often touching each other ... She was gently poking him, giving him little love pats, totally unlike the slapping she does with Jon. She and Steve were joking around so much, I actually wondered if they were having an affair. There's a lot of open affection between them." Kate was reportedly not as affectionate with Jon at the event.

Add to that more reports of Jon and Hummel having a few more romantic dates, one at Ruby Tuesday, one during Spring Gruv and another at Paolo's Restaurant & Bar.

Is the end near? Will the Gosselin's relationship implode before this last season even finishes? What about the kids?
