Kate Gosselin: Jon Wanted the Divorce

"Jon & Kate Plus 8" matriarch Kate Gosselin was still wearing her wedding ring in June 2009 because she said taking it off would devastate her children.

Kate Gosselin explained to People magazine in an exclusive interview that it was her husband of 10 years, Jon Gosselin, who asked for the divorce.

"I curled up in a ball and I sobbed. I couldn't breathe; I was hyperventilating. I was scaring people who were calling to check on me because I couldn't even talk," she told the entertainment magazine.

In a confessional during "Jon & Kate Plus 8," she said she didn't want to raise her children as a single parent.

"I don't really want to be alone. I don't want to do this alone," she said.

Their divorce has since been finalized.

Warren Buffett Backs Second Stimulus

As debate grew about a possible second stimulus package for the flagging U.S. economy, at least one legendary investor gave the idea his guarded approval.

"I think that a second one may well be called for," Warren Buffett, the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, told "Good Morning America" in July in an exclusive interview. But, he added, "you hope it doesn't get watered down in many ways."

Buffett cautioned that a second stimulus package, like the first, won't be a panacea because stimulus packages take time to work. He criticized lawmakers' work on the first stimulus package, which contained $787 billion in spending.

"Our first stimulus bill ... was sort of like taking half a tablet of Viagra and having also a bunch of candy mixed in ... as if everybody was putting in enough for their own constituents," he said. "It doesn't have really quite the wall that might have been anticipated there."
