Kate Gosselin back on better terms with Jon, still hoping for TV future

The family's doing better than ever.

Mrs. Carter: Does time really heal all wounds? When it comes to Jon and Kate Gosselin, it plays some sort of a role.

For the first time in months, the former star of TLC’s “Kate Plus 8” made an appearance on “The Today Show” Monday morning to speak about the state of her family — and she said that she and her ex-husband are finally doing well and are communicating together after years of discord. They have each seemingly moved on with their lives — after all, Jon has another new girlfriend — but they are no longer looking to make things difficult on each other.

Of course, the real winners here are the kids — including the sextuplets, who all recently celebrated their eighth birthday. Kate claims that the children do still all miss filming, and now that her contract has run out with TLC she is looking for other potential ways that she and her family could be involved in the public eye. Of course, this is an issue that will probably cause some tension between her and Jon — mostly in that he has already expressed his distaste with the children being filmed in any shape or form.

We are personally hoping that if Kate makes a return to TV on her own, she does so with a show like “The Celebrity Apprentice” — one that shows off a business-savvy side of her, and potentially brings to her some new fans that would watch her on another show.

Are you happy that Jon and Kate seem to be finally getting along?
