While public rumors that Jon is cheating with a 23-year-old school teacher and Kate is cheating with the family's bodyguard, Kate admits that she and Jon have been privately struggling with their marriage for months."I don't know that we're in the same place anymore, that we want the same thing," she tells the 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."The name Kate is referring to is that of Deanna Hummel, with whom Jon is accused of having a torrid love affair. Jon was caught stumbling out of a nightclub with Hummel several weeks ago -- setting off a firestorm of controversy.Is a split imminent? It's certainly not out of the realm of possibility, Kate says."You can't imagine yourself in a certain position when all this first happens, but you can do it over some months," she adds."It's a lot like when I was first pregnant with the babies, and it was pure shock and denial.
