Kate Gosselin beats tabloids to her affair story by denying she’s cheating on Jon

After Jon & Kate Plus Eight‘s Jon Gosselin was accused of having an affair by the woman’s own brother, Kate Gosselin now is beating the tabloids to the story of her own affair, revealing that someone will claim she’s having an affair with her bodyguard but denying that it’s true.

“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,” Kate told People. Bodyguard Steve Neild and his family “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,” she said.

The effect of these scandals may affect her friendships, Kate thinks–because apparently after watching her on TV she still has 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,” she said.

Yes, it really is upsetting when someone voluntarily goes on television to exploit her unnaturally large family and then is forced to talk to celebrity magazines about her completely surprising and totally unexpected troubles. Unfathomable, indeed.
