Kate Gosselin Defends Serena Williams

Hot topic: Kate Gosselin on The View.

On Monday, she began her first of two guest hosting gigs on the ABC show – and she didn't hold back.

Sherri Shepherd asked Gosselin what it was like to see her estranged husband Jon bringing his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, around their eight kids.

"This is all difficult – I'm not going to lie," she replied.

But she wouldn't answer the question. "For the sake of my children," she told the ladies, she is going to "take the high road."

She defended Serena Williams, who was fined $10,000 for her profane outburst at a line judge at the US Open on Saturday.

"I think the important thing here is that she's in the public eye," Gosselin, 34, said. "We're all human."

Gosselin even admitted, "In the privacy of my own home, this weekend, I melted down."

So why does she keep on filming her TLC show?

"So many people say, 'Stop … just pull out,'" Gosselin said. "I can stop, but I'd still have all the flack…"

"I’m a single mom, and now more than ever I need to be out there working hard to support my children," she added. "It comes with a price; every job that people do comes with a price."

She later said, "My focus is supporting my family and children and whatever way that comes, in a healthy way, I’m gonna do it.

"I'm essentially doing it by myself, and I’m going be responsible," she said.

When Whoopi Goldberg asked if she's paid enough, Kate replied, "Um… is anybody paid enough?"
