That whole mystery of Jon & Kate and that other lady just got a bit more (or less) interesting.
The supposed mistress of Jon Gosselin, the patriarch of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, has come forward…to deny any sort of questionable relations with the reality star.
"We're just friends," 23-year-old Deanna Hummel told People just days after photos of her and Gosselin leaving a bar at 2 a.m. landed on the cover of the tabloids. "It's absurd that anyone would think otherwise."
She claims she met the father of 8-year-old twins and 4-year-old sextuplets through a mutual friend several months ago and they've only spent time in groups with other pals. The only reason she was in his car that night, she says, is because she's "into cars" and wanted to see his new Nissan.
Hummel swears her innocence, telling the magazine, "We just talk and socialize, the normal things you do when you see friends."
Gosselin released a statement last week of a similar ilk.
"Like most people, I have male and female friends and I'm not going to end my friendships just because I'm on TV," he said.
