Last Saturday night, Jon Gosselin was spotted at a restaurant with a cute blonde. Turns out, she was Star magazine reporter Kate Major, who was writing a story on Jon. They claimed the relationship was strictly platonic. Until Wednesday, when Kate said, “I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did. I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.” Then came the rumors that the two were partying together in Hamptons, very oddly with Lindsay Lohan’s dad. Then this morning, a message appeared on Star‘s website saying that Major had resigned. So what’s going on here?Well, it depends on what you read. According to the New York Daily News, friends close to the 26-year-old blondie say she’s just using Jon to get her 15 minutes of fame. Hence why she quit her job—to kick back and enjoy the quasi-celebrity lifestyle.Wait a second. They think she up and dropped her entire life for a guy she barely knew? Doesn’t she remember Hailey Glassman, the gal Jon was taking on lavish vacations, like, a week ago?
But the New York Post says that Major was forced out. “Her relationship with Jon Gosselin…who is on our current cover, could raise questions about the objectivity of our reporting,” Star‘s editor-in-chief told Page Six. “We therefore believe it is in our mutual best interest to part company.” Well, that is Journalism 101. You can’t sleep with your sources or subjects.
But, wait, now Jon is saying he and Major were never involved in the first place? “Oh my God, I can’t believe she did this to me,” Jon has reportedly said?
What do you make of all this circus?
