Was Kate the First to Cheat?

Well it seems that we have taken the low road with the whole Jon and Kate Gosselin scandal. When it was revealed weeks ago that Jon was caught having an affair with Deanna Hummel, he chose to deny it and hope that it all went away. Now that it hasn’t, he has turned the blame back on Kate, saying that she was actually the first to step out on the marriage. I have a general rule where I’m suspicious of cheaters so at first I was inclined not to believe this story and the fact that it comes from an anonymous source doesn’t help. But I don’t know. The relationship sounds much friendlier than just client/bodyguard and does seem to suggest that Kate may have found her happiness elsewhere. A long time ago, might I add. From US, 

“The new issue of Us Weekly reports that Jon & Kate mom Kate Gosselin grew so close to her bodyguard, Steve Neild, it caught the attention of her husband, Jon — and has become the talk of many locals in their Berks County, Pennsylvania, community. Since May 2008, Kate has made 50 public appearances, criss-crossing the country, often with Neild by her side, as Jon stayed home with the kids. Even when at home — whether at Starbucks or at restaurants — Neild has been a constant companion to Gosselin, who is estranged from her family and viewed in town as not having friends.

“He threatened to hire a private investigator,” a family source informed by Jon Gosselin tells Us.

The married Neild — who once worked for Bill Clinton, and is often photographed not wearing his wedding band — were “very physical, often touching each other,” says an employee at a recent promotional appearance for their TLC reality show. “She was gently poking him, giving him little love pats, totally unlike the slapping she does with Jon. She and Steve were joking around so much, I actually wondered if they were having an affair. There’s a lot of open affection between them.” The employee adds Kate showed no affection at all to Jon at the same event.

(Neild’s wife Gina, a one-time close friend of Kate’s, tells Us local and online talk of an affair is “ridiculous”; Kate has confessed she and Jon might split in the same interview she says she is “horrified” by any allegations suggesting she and Neild are romantically involved; TLC refused comment.)

Meanwhile, Us has learned that Jon has had more public trysts with 23-year-old third grade teacher Deanna Hummel than first reported.”

Maybe at this particular event where Kate was showing more affection to someone that was on her payroll than she was to her husband, it was just a bad day for the two. It’s not uncommon for people to overcompensate with people they’re not angry with when someone they’re pissed at is in the same room. It’s petty and stupid but that is Kate after all. And she does always treat Jon like trash, there’s also no denying that. However if this is true, it shows that the marriage was in trouble long before Jon ever made eyes towards Deanna. Not that Kate’s cheating gives Jon the right to nor does Kate treating Jon like trash. If he doesn’t like it, he should have left and that’s that.

But it seems now that things have gone too far and Jon and Kate just won’t be able to see it through this one. And when both people have already quit and walked out mentally, there’s really no going back. So…I wonder what this means for the show. Will there still be a show? Will it be Kate Plus Eight one week and then Jon Plus Eight the other? Who knows but this couple has bigger problems right now than their television show. Most importantly, what’s going to happen to those 8 kids who have already had nothing close to a normal life and now have to live through their parents’ marriage problems? Who could have foreseen that something that was once such an ‘opportunity’ has now become their downfall? It’s really very sad.

Wow. When I found out that they were or are going to split up I got really sad. It’s going to be hard to deal with 8 kids alone. I really would like for them to work everything out. They are a really adorable family.
