Surprise, surprise: all is not well with the the eight Gosselin children. Says who? Kate Gosselin, who admits to Vanity Fair that her kids have been "acting out" in the wake of her nasty impending divorce, the shutdown of their reality TV behemoth, and continuing legal battles.

"I'm trying to give them the grace to see, if they're acting out of line, I'm trying to look deeper into why that is," Gosselin, 34, tells Vanity Fair. "[The kids] don't see it, but it's all interconnected," she says of their misbehaving.

Of Jon his future ex-wife says the kids "miss him."

"They say they miss him. I imagine they say the same thing when I'm away."

In the extended interview, Gosselin, 34, also talks excitedly about guest-hosting "The View" and her potential future in television. "It comes to me very easily when I'm doing TV . . . I laugh that people are like, 'Oh, that must be so hard.' To me it's so very easy!"

Not that Barbara Walters et al weren't initially intimidating.

"I felt like I was walking in on their turf," she says. "It took about 39 seconds for them to see I'm not there to take over or anything. I definitely bonded with Sherri [Shepherd]. She has gone through a divorce and she took me under her wing. Barbara was wonderful!"

"It was a huge honor," she continues. "I don't feel really worthy, but if they're asking me, hey man, I'm doin' it!"
