Kate Gosselin admits she and Jon may split up over alleged affair

Cover "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star  Kate Gosselin admits her marriage may be in the toilet.

But is she ready to flush?

"I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," Kate tells People magazine.  "I've been struggling with the question of 'Who is this person?' for a while. I remember where I was the first time I heard her name. It's one of those things where you can try to make it go away, but there's blaring, red flashing lights."

Kate's talking about Deanna Hummel, 23, whose own brother claims she's had a months-long affair with Kate's hubby, Jon.

Kate still hopes her marriage can be saved. "I will never give up hope that every member of our family can be absolutely happy again," she says.

She's talking about their EIGHT kids.

Someone needs to remind Jon how much child support times 8 is.

What do you think? Should Kate try to make her marriage work or dump Jon?
