[Edited to add: Jon Gosselin has issued a statement: “It is certainly hurtful for people to spread rumors and lies about us. It certainly makes me reluctant to live my life like the average person would. This has made it very clear that the simplest innocent gesture -— such as taking a picture with a fan, can be taken out of context. As you can see on the show, I am not perfect, but I am a part of a loving family and couple.”]
I was horrified to be the next-to-the last person (sorry, Kate) to learn, when the incident made it to the round table chat on Chelsea Lately tonight, about the recently broken story that Jon Gosselin of TLC's reality show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" has allegedly been seen canoodling with college coeds.
According to the story, Jon has appeared in bars sans Kate and behaved badly on consecutive weekend nights (including Valentine's Day) in the Huntingdon, Pennsylvania area near where the couple purchased a $1.3 million home. The new house and the couple's move into it has been featured in J&K+8's most recently aired episodes.
It's hard to tell, but I think the source for the story is Star Magazine. The story has also been featured on celebtv.com (video) and is spreading like wildfire online. My devotion to the show and fondness for all the Gosselins and their amazing story has been pretty well documented here. I actually got misty when these two renewed their vows on a recent trip to Hawaii. And I'm not one who mists easily. Let's hope it ain't so.
