In 2009, Kate and Jon Gosselin's very public marriage crumbled, the pair victims of public scrutiny and tabloid rumors that grew alongside the success of their TLC reality TV series, Jon & Kate Plus 8.
The relationship's dissolution was still a shock to Kate, who tells PEOPLE in this week's issue that her ex-husband transformed suddenly.
"I really would have thought he'd have been here for the long haul," Kate says. "The weirdest thing is that overnight he became a different person."

Kate Gosselin is opening up about her son Collin.
In this week's issue of PEOPLE, the reality star reveals how she came to the hard decision of enrolling her 12-year-old son in a program away from home that can help him reach his full potential.
"Collin has special needs," Kate tells PEOPLE. "[There's] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time, and it's one I've dealt with on my own. I've felt very alone in this. By the same token, it's not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted."

Jon Gosselin revealed that he isn't on speaking terms with his eldest daughters, Madelyn and Cara.
Following his divorce from Kate Gosselin in December 2009, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star admitted that his relationship with several of his children is strained.
"Everybody used to come to my house," Gosselin, 39, told Entertainment Tonight. "You know, it was great, and then Madelyn and Cara just stopped coming, around 12 to 13 [years old]. I didn't question it. I was just like, 'Hey, do what you want, be with your friends,' and then it just became they're not coming."

Jon Gosselin is reaching out to his kids in their own language: with an all-powerful #TBT.
The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star wished twins Mady and Cara, his two oldest daughters with ex-wife Kate, a happy birthday Thursday by tweeting a sweet Christmastime throwback photo of a festive-sweater-clad Gosselin with the girls on his lap.
Kate also tweeted about the girls, saying in one of her two messages that she didn't join in the #TBT fun because the twins "wouldn't approve any pics for me to post so no pics lol!" (Hopefully Jon's throwback was adorable enough for Mady and Cara let that one slide.)

On last week's Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin marked her big 4-0, now she's turning her attention toward the sextuplets as they celebrate their 11th birthday. (Yes, you read that right: Alexis, Aaden, Leah, Colin, Hannah and Joel are 11 – and we're all very, very old.)
In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday's episode Kate says one of the benefits of age is that she doesn't sweat the small stuff anymore: "I am relaxing, chilling out. And I can tell that about myself. I kind of laugh at myself," she says.
"Things that used to really send me over the edge, now I'm just like, 'Hey, whatever.' I just can't be spending my energy on the meltdown of the century every time something little happens."
