She comes under fire on Twitter for telling Matt Lauer her estranged husband works a "mediocre… regular job."
Outgoing reality star Kate Gosselin is coming under fire for saying her ex husband Jon works a "mediocre… regular job" on the Today show Monday morning.
"So according to @Kateplusmy8 people that are not in tv are just mediocre!!!" wrote her fan, @macgal_74.
Gosselin immediately explained her comment on Twitter.
" not what I meant.. I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is and is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!" Jon reportedly works in solar-panel construction.
She then added, "2clarify re 'mediocre' - I meant this job is not a career acc 2 jon but tv is 4 me & is hard but will prov best opps 4 my kids vs nursing!"
The comment came up when Lauer asked her about estranged husband Jon saying he was "very relieved" the show was over.
Gosselin replied, "It' a situation where Jon may be accepting of mediocre for his kids and working a regular job. I want the best for my kids and the best opportunities not unlike every parent. To be a good parent is to work as hard as you can and give them the best opportunities in life, and this has provided that."
