Kate Gosselin, Jon & Kate Plus 8
Jon & Kate mom Kate Gosselin says she is disgusted and "horrified" by insinuations that she may have had an affair with her bodyguard.
"The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family," she told People. "Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified."
Just days after Jon Gosselin, 32, denied an Us report that he was having an affair with 23-year-old school teacher Deanna Hummel, a Star magazine report questions whether Kate Gosselin cheated on her husband with bodyguard Steve Neild.
"It's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team," the mother of eight said.
Kate said she fears the new stories will drive her few remaining friends out of their lives. "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."
The 33-year-old said she doesn't know how to put a stop to the media madness surrounding her family and friends. "The scary thing for me is [the tabloids] are going to take information and create a story. It's a matter of, 'When will they stop?' They're going to keep going, and they'll make up stuff to connect the dots."
