Kate was rumored to have had an affair with her bodyguard earlier this year, which she has denied. According to Kate, the Neild family has been very supportive through her divorce. “They’re my best friends,” Kate said.
Jon on the other hand tweeted he was going to be at his “grandma’s” to celebrate Thanksgiving but Hailey Glassmansaid otherwise via her twitter. Hailey accused Jon of lying, reports Radaronline.
“LOL-U are in Utah snowboarding w/”friends”-lol-ur redic,” Hailey shot back at Jon.
Not exactly sure what’s going with these douche bags people. According to Jon, he thinks they are on break, or is the relatioship really over? And perhaps Jon didn’t get the memo.
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.”

When asked about the fact that Jon has admitted to starting a relationship with 22 year old Hailey Glassman in May, well before the reality show couple’s June 22 divorce announcement, Kate said, “I was shocked.” She added: “It’s very hurtful. To be very honest the most hurtful part is when his decisions directly affect the children.”
Kate also denied a rumored affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild, and attacked her brother who has criticized her publicly.
As for the reason she continues to wear her wedding ring, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom said she keeps the ring on to make the divorce transition easier for her children.
Kate said, “Sorry, I don’t want to upset them (the kids.) I don’t want to shock them.”
