Kate Gosselin may claim to dedicate her life to her family as a single mom to eight children, but according to another family member, that’s where the love ends.

Kate’s sister, Kendra Wilber, tells the Mail Online (via RadarOnline.com) claims that Kate has completely cut ties with the rest of her family.

“Kate does not speak to her family at all,” says Kendra. “It is very painful… The last time we saw and spoke with her it was in our church parking lot. That was years ago.”

While Kate may be protective over her kids after spending so many years foisting them into the harsh reality TV spotlight, Kendra insists there was no bad blood between Kate and the rest of her family before the former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star decided to go radio silent.

“There was no conversation and no argument. I guess we have our own life and she wants a big life and we don’t fit in,” says her sister. “We are just normal everyday people and she doesn’t want us to be part of her life.”

Despite Kate’s coldness, Kendra says she’s still trying to get in touch with Kate for the sake of her children. “I send a Christmas card every year, but I never hear anything. It’s hard, it’s really, really hard. I don’t know why. It’s terrible because my children, their cousins, talk about them and wish they could see them. We have our memories from years ago, but we have no contact.”
