Kate Gosselin Denies Having Affair With Bodyguard

Kate Gosselin Speaks Out About Rumors She Cheated

Over Mother's Day weekend, it appeared that the Gosselin gossip that covered the tabloids and news feeds last week had died down. Kate was spotted at a supermarket picking up a cake, likely to celebrate her sextuplets' 5th birthday, and Jon was seen outside the family's abode playing with the kids and dogs.

But this morning People published a portion of its exclusive interview with the mom of eight dispelling the new claim that she had an affair with one of the family's bodyguards, Steve Neild. Here are the highlights:

On the rumor of her having an affair: "The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family. Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified. These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end. Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we've spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team . . . they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."

On her small circle of family and friends: "I'm totally panicking, and thinking, 'We are going to lose our last set of friends.' I keep calling them, begging, 'Seriously, I'm so sorry. Don't run away from us.' They keep saying, ‘We're fine, we're fine.' But they have paparazzi in front of their house. It's so upsetting."

To see what the mama of multiples had to say about putting her family in the public eye and the situation spinning out of control,

.

On how she and Jon made the decision to put their family in the public eye: "We opened our world to this. We willingly made a conscious decision to put this out there. Our friends and family did not. I had no idea we would potentially take down the people that we love around us."

On the tabloid situation being beyond her control: "The scary thing for me is [the tabloids] are going to take information and create a story. It's a matter of, 'When will they stop?' They're going to keep going, and they'll make up stuff to connect the dots."

The new season of our favorite brood's TLC show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, airs one week from Monday.

Did she think that having a reality show involving her children on a more family-friendly network was going to somehow "save" her family from this kind of attention?

i bought the new US which says that reality show stars like them would earn about 50-75K per episode!! so they're doing fiiiineyou also make money every time you appear on a talk show, every book you sign, every book you sell etc. and i'm sure TLC pays for stuff like bodyguards and lots of their childcare...plus the show pays for all their activities/vacations etc. which means all the profit is money in their pocket

Let's say I've watched the show a looot. And yes Kate is really mean to Jon. He choices of words is not that bad, but is disrespectful. To behave and talk in such a way to your husband, in front of camera is inconsiderate.

running, I didn't know much about this family (only watched 3 rerun episodes so far) and just start reading up on them these past few weeks. I'm just thinking that if she's as ambitious as other people perceived her to be (heck, I read many comments condemning her of that), she's going to aim to the point that they (all 10 of them or perhaps more if she includes some other relatives) will be able to possibly live 'forever' in comfort and possibly 'luxury' even after the kids leave the nest and adults. If she's like an Asian mom LOL, she'd want to buy each kid a house too (heck, that's how my Asian family does thing anyway). Oh I read that someone estimated they're being paid $50,000 to $80,000 per episode (but I don't know if it's true or not).I'm just saying, these days, with investments, etc, lifestyle cost more than ever. I know that my family spent quite a bit with a child around and he's not even in real school yet! (Pre-K isn't a real school..I think). And Kate (kind of like my mom) seems the type who will put her kids in private school too, and I've researched the tuition, dude, they're pricey :( My hub and I are aiming high too for our child and we have college funds set up for him, but we know that it's most likely that we're going to have to make much more money to break even with 1 kid and we're pretty thrifty family.

<i>Maybe it's time to end the show they must have more than enough money to live comfortably on for the rest of their lives. </I> I agree. ... I don't think Kate wants to though - she's loving being a "celeb"<i>With 8 kids, (and I assume that they want to put the kids through college) a big/expensive house they live in, Jon (and her) not working, and just basically expenses (bodyguards, publicists, some trips, food, children's, etc), I doubt that they have so much money saved up</I>From my understanding, the kids already have college trusts set up. And -- I don't know how much they make per show, but with the show itself, and all the book publishings (Kate says she doesn't care if no one but her kids reads her newest book... RIGHT.), and signings and tours, I am sure they have enough money to live on.

How can she put herself on national TV and not think everything would always be positive that's portrayed by filming or media? She can't really blame media when she set herself up for scrutiny by agreeing to be filmed does becomes famous then complains. It comes with the lifestyle she signed up for doing the show and anything else that would materialize for their family. It's a matter of being who you truly are and not worrying about media. Also holding interviews or using the media you complain about doesn't make things any better. Please just take a well deserved break you and Jon obviously need.

Crazy b*tch. They should cancel the show and make money in syndication, get divorced, and let the bodyguards take care of the kids for them. Oh and "I had no idea that we could take down our loved ones"... Sure, all the celebs say that. Sad.

I wish I could just say, hey end all this and live on your money you've earned for the rest of your lives. Actually I can say that, but hey, it's really up to them :pWith 8 kids, (and I assume that they want to put the kids through college) a big/expensive house they live in, Jon (and her) not working, and just basically expenses (bodyguards, publicists, some trips, food, children's, etc), I doubt that they have so much money saved up, although the amount saved up in their bank account probably surpassed any middle-class/middle-lower class family's bank account (including our own family). And seeing how 'ambitious' the parents seem, they may want to save up more and more until they're sure all of them (the whole family) won't need a day of work ever again before fading into normalcy.I caught the '4th of July' episode, and boy those kids are funny and cute, reminds me of my own son, he's turning 4 soon.

Another rumor? Whoa, it just goes on and on the cheating rumor.Thanks to this, I was actually trying to catch their show (rerun) LOL. I wanted to see if she's really THAT bad (since people are calling her names and since I only watched 2 episodes before, I couldn't understand why people hate her so).

"Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified."Is that supposed to be the denial? To me, this whole interview seems like she's avoiding addressing the affairs and just blaming everything on the paparazzi. Keep crying all the way to the bank, Kate.
