Kate is on the View. When ask to why continue the show, she again says it's for the kids. That's why she's traveling all over the place doing TV interviews and wanted to have her own Talk Show. All for the kids. And who's caring for the kids? Not Kate.
And for those who missed it, Kate was very awkward on the show. Looking like a nobody trying to fit in with the cool kids. Kate had nothing interesting to say when the topic was not about her. Dr. Phil was also on the show with Kate the next day. Kate asked Dr. Phil about the "gossip" between him and Oprah, but was interrupted by another hosts. The topic changed and Dr. Phil looked very uncomfortable and avoided any eye contact with Kate. When asked about the meeting between Dr. Phil and the Gosselins, Dr. Phil remained silent about the issue.
Which proved Jon was correct that the meeting was not about saving their relationship, but to "build the brand".
