Kate Gosselin spent her birthday without her husband Jon who decided to go snowboarding instead on Jon and Kate Plus Eight Monday night. “I went out to Utah for like five days,” he said. "It just happened to fall on Kate’s birthday.” The kids and show producers threw Kate a party instead. The couple were apart again when Kate went to San Diego. Though not addressing their martial problems directly, there were some pointed hints. “We usually don’t call,” Jon says of how they deal with communication during their trips apart. “No news is good news,” Kate countered.
