“I definitely strive to be me and when stories are made up and written about me that are totally untrue it is very hurtful,” Kate told us exclusively. “But I hope that people see in me that I’m a mom like everyone else, just working to provide for my kids — I mean if you have to work, isn’t this so fun?
