On Friday's Today show, Kate Gosselin said she is in a better place today than she was a year ago.

"2009 was one that I prefer to erase if I could," she said while promoting her new TLC show Kate Plus Eight (premiering Sunday). "2010 was the marker for me that it was going to be a better year ... shambles, no more -- so far, we're in a good place."

"Generally speaking, things are good at this moment," she said of relations with her ex.

June 12 marks what would be her 11th wedding anniversary.


"To me, I feel like it's another day in this year of positivity and moving forward ..." she said. "I am going to plunge ahead ... and think good thoughts.":
