Kate Gosselin spent this weekend taping the pilot of her new talk show follwing her 3-day appeareance as a guest host on The View last week. Radaronline reports the Gosselin kids spent several days in the care of their nannies with Kate in New York and Jon Gosselin off doing whatever it is he does.
The pilot for her new TV show was taped in NYC at the Chelsea studio. According to RadarOnline, the show received thumbs-up reviews from everyone in the studio including her bosses.
Southern cooking expert Paula Deen, Rene Syler and Lee Woodruff have major roles on the show, which does not feature Kate as the star, but integrates her into the ensemble.
A source familiar with the taping told RadarOnline.com: “It went extremely well. Everyone there loved it. And Kate did great. There’s no question that she was a hit.”
This week’s cover of InTouch magazine reveals an explosive report detailing Jon Gosselin’s affair with his 23 year old babysitter, Stephanie Santoro.
The former waitress and single mom sold gave an exclusive interview to InTouch, in which she claims that during the month she spent employed as Jon’s nanny, she had a passionate affair with theJon & Kate Plus 8 star in the family home. Stephanie reveals she saw a side of Jon that’s bound to shock even his most devoted fans.
It was reported a while back that Stephanie was sleeping with Jon. Jon however denied those reports, claiming he had been faithful to girlfriend Hailey Glassman.
Below are excerpts from Stephanie’s bombshell interview. She even goes as far as to rate Jon’s bedroom performance -
How did you first meet Jon?
I had met Jon and Kate a few years back at a twins convention when they had Cara and Mady [now 8]. Jon and I became friends when I was working at [Pennsylvania bar] Legends, and he came in sometimes. After they filed for divorce, he started hanging out there a lot, and we started talking more.
When did you get intimate?
We were talking on the phone one night, and the kids were all at home, and he was like, “What are you doing tonight?” and I didn’t have plans. So he goes, “Let’s hang out. We can go hang out in the hot tub and talk more about everything.” So I went over, and we were talking. He asked me if I could give a back massage, and I was like, “Okay, whatever.” So I gave him one and then he was like, “my turn.” While we were sitting there, he said, “Well, I guess we can kiss just once.” At one point he said, “Whatever you do, don’t fall in love with me, because it’s going to be impossible for me not to fall in love with you.”
During your relationship, how many times did you sleep together?
How would you rate the sex?
On the romantic end, it was a nine. I wasn’t looking for the pleasure part of it. If you care about someone, it’s not about how good they are in bed. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the best I ever had.
Jon had threatened to bring Hailey to the family home in Wernersville, PA but in the end he relented and Hailey met the kids elsewhere, sources familiar with the situation reveal exclusively to RadarOnline.
We reported earlier that Kate was in tears over Jon’s threats to bring Hailey around the kids.
This is the same Hailey with a very troubled past. One that involves heavy drug use, an arrest record, and sexual promiscuity all by the tender age of 22, according to the people who know her.
Hailey is also the same girlfriend Jon has only been dating for a few months, when he isn’t too busy dating other women such as tabloid reporter Kate Major, and his babysitter Stephanie Santoro. Something tells me Jon will not be winning a father of the year award anytime soon.
Radar also reports Jon and Kate’s divorce will become final by the end of this month. “Now that Jon has introduced Hailey to the kids it’s only a matter of time before he brings her to the house,” says a source.

Jon Gosselin and 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, want us to know those pesky break up rumors are false! And what better way to do that than to stage some kissing paparazzi photos!
Radaronline posted some exclusive photos of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad making out with Hailey. The photos were taken on Thursday during their recent road trip.
Reports surfaced that the couple had broken up over his trip to Las Vegas last week and other possible incidences of infidelity. These photos however tell a different story. Sighs – and they said it wouldn’t last.
Jon Gosselin’s fifteen minutes of fame doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. In his recent interview on ABC’s special Primetime: Family secrets, the father of eight, says estranged wife Kate, would only agree to therapy with Dr. Phil.
“I was very hesitant,” Jon says. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’”
According to Jon, the session with Dr. Phil was more about fixing the image of their hit TLC show rather than their broken marriage.
“We talked about the brand and corporate things and making the brand work,” he says. “I felt it was weird. I was like, ‘Why am I here? I could be snowboarding.’ It wasn’t helping.”
Dr. Phil released a statement to ABC News saying, “I respect the Gosselins’ privacy, I have no comment on their marriage.”
In more of his interview with ABC News, Jon continues to trash Kate, claiming she took his wedding ring, may have had an affair with her bodyguard, and saying he despises her.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad accuses Kate, 34, of “feeding into the frenzy” by appearing on magazine covers bashing him. “I despise [her] because she’s not speaking from the heart,” Jon tells ABC News. “Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”
Jon also slams Kate for claiming she still wears her wedding ring because she doesn’t want to “upset” their eight children. Says Jon, “I think she still wears the ring for public perception. I don’t wear my ring because she took my ring. I don’t have it. ” He continues. “I laid it down one night. It was gone. Who else would take it? I checked all the — underneath my kids’ pillows. That’s where everything ends up in the house anyway. So it wasn’t there.”
Jon goes on to speculate that Kate might have had an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild. “I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel. You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous,” he said. “Here, I’m Mr. Mom. And then there’s some other guy traveling with my wife. Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.” Kate has always denied the affair rumors.
In a statement to ABC News, Kate attempts to take the high road saying: “While I certainly have a very different perception of how our marriage dissolved, for the sake of my children I maintain that I’m not going to go into details of aspects I believe should remain private.”
