Jon and Kate Gosselin and Deanna Hummel All Deny Affair

Jon Gosselin Denies Cheating, Hummel Discredits Brother

In what appears to be an interview that took place prior to US Weekly's publication of the photo spread alleging an affair between Jon Gosselin and 23-year-old Deanna Hummel, the TLC star denied cheating on his wife, Kate, to Entertainment Weekly. Here are the highlights of EW's chat with The Gosselins:
On the photograph of Jon and Deanna taken outside Legends bar:
Kate: It's disturbing and unfortunate that these tabloids have gone as far as they have to try and bring us down. Jon's poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.
On being in the public eye and the fan response to tabloid reports:
Jon: Our fans and the majority of viewers have been overwhelmingly supportive, but when tabloids take photos and turn them into something they are not, yes it definitely makes us hesitant to take photos with fans and go about our daily lives. We still want to live normal lives. We want our kids to have opportunities that we didn't have growing up, which is why we participated in the show in the first place. But of course it makes us think twice about how we spend our time in public.
On whether they will address these issues during the fifth season of Jon and Kate Plus 8 which begins airing on May 25:
Kate: I think we will address the bigger picture, regarding the very public focus on our family and the stress it's caused in our relationship, but not necessarily any specific tabloid.

Additionally, People just published another adamant denial of the affair by Hummel who discredits her brother as a reliable source behind the US Weekly piece stating that he has a criminal past and is currently on probation. She said:

My brother is making this all up. He has no credibility ... I can't even stomach the lies he's saying about me."

Update: Latest US Weekly piece has a video of Jon allegedly leaving Hummel's house in the early morning and RadarOnline has a clip of a motel security guard stating that he saw Jon kiss a woman fitting Hummel's description at Legends.

Right . If you're going to have a tv show you're going to get publicity so you should think about that. I have no clue if Jon was cheating and it isn't really any of my business on that part but I can understand what he means about having friends of the opposite sex. When I was younger one of my very good friends was a guy and people used to tease us all the time playfully about how we would end up together and all this other stuff even though we never did date and he had other girlfriends all the time. You can have friends of the opposite sex. I know it's crazy right? ;)

We still want to live normal lives. Then perhaps, methinks, you shouldn't have a national television show. You cannot have the money and priviligies that come with this life, and not have the publicity and lack of privacy. If they are so hell bent on normal lives perhaps they should get the tv cameras out of their lives.
Any body listening to US weekly is silly. I don't believe he would cheat on Kate and Kate isn't a monster. Yes I watch the Soup but Jon wouldn't do that. No matter what Kate says or does.

I'm bad, I admit, I was all 'interested' in the beginning (to the point, I clicked the USWeekly's link (only to find that the 'evidence' is so...flimsy and not exactly a confirmation as they claim to be), but now it has gotten rather ridiculous, so I really should stop reading about this :). I think I should just let them mind their own business. They obviously need to do some work with whatever they're doing in their marriage. Hopefully they'll put their children first. Poor kids, having their family going through this tabloid gossip.

I agree with TeaCake! The fact that this so called confirmation of this alleged affair comes from a tabloid is so crass and not a reliable source of information at all. I love Lil and Baby and everything they post, but I would think they would have better judgment than to post something like that. If its not coming directly from Jon or Kate or their official reps then it has not been confirmed.

I think all the tabloid attention they are getting is just ridiculous. At the end of the day of the day the part that makes Jon and Kate plus 8 so much fun to watch is the kids and I highly doubt all these rumours are doing them much good. I wish Us Weekly would give it up and leave them alone.

Sounds like he cheated to me. At this point they should both shut up and raise those kids whether together or separate. But, they need to put them first.

So Kate says: "Jon's poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us." And Jon says: "...but when tabloids take photos and turn them into something they are not, yes it definitely makes us hesitant to take photos with fans and go about our daily lives" :ponder: It doesn't seem like they're quite on the same page here.
