“Jon & Kate Plus 8”: The week (thus far) in review

Can’t keep up with all of the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” news? Neither can I.


I suppose the biggest news of the week (as of this very second, at least) is that Jon spoke exclusively to People. And judging by what the magazine has posted online, he really didn’t have anything interesting to say. (Unlike Kate did just a few weeks ago. Which Gosselin will be next to have their very own People cover?)

But I digress. Forgive me, it’s hard not to when the only thing Jon has to talk about in this interview excerpt is how he doesn’t believe his children are being treated unfairly.

“Exploited?” Jon asks People (incredulously?). “I don’t even want to use that word, because I think it’s ridiculous.”

The mag adds that his children’s happiness is his top priority (is he suggesting that Kate’s isn’t?), even if that means the family must stop doing the show.

Just to spice things up, People features one of those Kate-in-a-bikini photos (taken this week in North Carolina) on the cover, too.

Meanwhile, Star features an interview with Adam Miller, who once upon a time was engaged to Kate. As you can assume, Adam doesn’t have very nice things to say about Kate. (I’ll eat my hat if I ever see any of these magazines actually quote people who say nice things about her! There’s got to be somebody somewhere, right?)

Anyway, Adam says Kate “pressured” him to marry her, but that he broke things off after she cheated on him at his 21st birthday party.

“She hooked up with some guy in a Corvette,” Adam, a factory worker, tells Star. “She was always chasing the money.”

These shenanigans evidently took place in Kutztown, Pa., in 1995. Adam was just out of high school and Kate was a year older. (Kate apparently has a thing for younger men. Kate, you cougar, you!)

“I spoiled Kate with gifts, like a diamond bracelet and a gold locket, and she loved that,” Adam dishes. “I think one of the main reasons she liked me is that I had so much money flowing.”

And lastly, not to be outdone is Us Weekly, which is sporting new photos of Jon with his alleged girlfriend/mistress, 23-year-old schoolteacher Deanna Hummel. The photos were reportedly taken during Jon’s skiing/snowboarding trip to Utah in March. (Which was documented in this week’s episode… and occurred during Kate’s birthday. Ahem.)

You can read more about what witnesses to that trip had to say here.

Us also has info on Kate’s time in North Carolina with the kids. Shockingly, the mag says Kate can’t seem to put down her Blackberry (we saw shades of that in this week’s episode, during Kate and Mady’s trip to San Diego) and that she spent a lot of time with her bodyguard, Steve Neild.

“She completely ignored her children the entire time,” Us quotes fellow vacationer Ann Michele Sweeney as saying.

“When Kate sat on the edge of the pool, she told one of  (the twins), ‘If you splash me, you’re dead meat,'” says Sweeney. “She was not joking at all.”

Sorry to say, but that definitely sounds like something Kate would say…

Determined to get the last word (and possibly knowing that other people were listening?), the kid (I bet this was Mady!) said, “Mommy, you are mean!” Sweeney says.

Us also dug up a slew of photos of Kate from high school – she attended Mount Calvary Christian School in Elizabethtown, Pa. – and they are hilarious! See for yourself here.

Do you think Kate is on the school’s famous graduates list?
