Jon and Kate Gosselin arrive together to the Pennsylvania Womens Show on May 2, 2009

Despite US Magazine confirming that Jon Gosselin cheated on his wife Kate by having a 3 month affair with grade school teacher, Deanna Hummel, Jon has come out denying all cheating allegations.

Jon released a statement to People saying, “These allegations are false and just plain hurtful.  As I adjust to the attention that comes from being in the public eye, I need to be more careful and aware of who I am associating with and where I am spending my time. But the bottom line is, I did not cheat on Kate. I am sorry for putting my family in this awkward position, given some poor decisions and bad judgments I’ve made recently.”

The “other” woman involved in this scandal, Deanna Hummel, also denies the allegations leveled against her by her own brother who claims she had an affair with Jon. Deanna said, “My brother is making this all up,” she says. “I can’t even stomach the lies he’s saying about me.”

Kate opened up for the first time on the Rachael Ray Show’s taping yesterday about how she’s dealing with this entire scandal, “It’s one of those things that we’re just handling privately.  We’re just taking it one step at a time and I’m trying to walk through it.” The episode will air on Tuesday.

Kate also admitted to Entertainment Weekly that Jon’s behavior has caused some problems for the couple, “Jon’s poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.”

Deanna’s brother, Jason Hummell, continues to stand by his story saying he has no reason to lie. Jason states, “I noticed that in both her and Jon’s recent comments, that neither of them addresses the fact that he was sleeping over at our house and was videotaped leaving our house at 7:30 in the morning.”

ABC has just released new details about the upcoming season of The Bachelorette starring Jillian Harris. The biggest change coming this season is that Jillian gets to pick from a pool of 30 men instead of the usual 25!

Jillian will have to eliminate 10 men the first night. The show is now set to premier on May 18th. Below are some details of what is to come this season –

Jillian will be the first person in the history of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” to have 30 suitors to select from. The original group of 25 men quietly seethes as the additional guests get their time with the Bachelorette. One bachelor reveals that he is secretly obsessed with Jillian’s feet, while a wealthy businessman impresses her with his laid-back confidence. In the end, Jillian presents her “first impression” rose to the man who managed to stand out in the crowd of eligible contenders.

Three of the bachelors will get to live in the mansion with Jillian, with the rest living together in an unspectacular bunkhouse down the hill.

In one of the episodes, the bachelors must vote for the man they’d most like to send home – much to one stunned and unhappy bachelor’s dismay.

Jillian will have some of the most romantic and adventurous dates ever with exciting surprises in store for her bachelors as they travel around the globe for intimate dates in California, Hawaii, Canada and Spain.

Jillian takes one lucky man on her ultimate dream date: a private concert by Grammy Award-winner and four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Martina McBride at the House of Blues in Hollywood.

The Bachelors will be announced soon with one of the 30 men being rumored to be a single dad from Dallas named Tanner. No word yet on how far he makes it.
