(Newser) – Their divorce is splashed all over the tabloids, but Kate Gosselin was still shocked when Regis Philbin asked her about it during a taping yesterday, insiders tell the New York Daily News. The interview, which airs tomorrow, was supposed to be a fluff piece, but Philbin went rogue and asked if the Jon and Kate Plus 8 stars might reconnect. “I can’t and won’t answer that,” Gosselin said.

But Philbin didn’t stop there: “I think you will get back together and live happily ever after,” he said. “I think everything is going to work itself out—he’ll say he’s sorry, that he loves you and everything will be good.” A visibly shaken Kate had no response and the show cut to commercial.
