Kate Gosselin defends herself on Jay Leno: 'Single moms work!'



Kate Gosselin defends her single working mom status to Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show." First question: What does her ex Jon Gosselin, do for a living?

"I don't know," replies Kate. "Does he have a job?"Jay presses. "Not that I'm aware of," replies Kate.

Jay goes on: "And yet you're getting flack for working to support the family?

"I'm a single mom with eight kids... and moms work," adds Kate. "Single moms work, I travel and work and I'm very grateful and fortunate to have a job."

We'd be grateful to have that cool Farrah Fawcett flippy 'do. If Kate's not careful, she's gonna end up with a million dollar shampoo/hair care endorsement gig.

Jon will hate that.
