While it’s being reported that Jon Gosselin is still probably seeing Kate Major, the now ex-employee of Star Magazine, Jon is still totally in denial. While attending the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets Field on Saturday, Jon told People Magazine that “At this point … I’m single – per se.” Per se. Nice. Like he’s not with her right now, per se, so they’re technically not dating. Jon also told People, “I’m just a regular guy who just wants to have friendship and good times. And I like meeting people.” People like Michael Lohan. Gah! Get the garlic and the wooden stake. Jon also gave some respect to Hailey Glassman and her family:
Of 22-year-old Glassman, Gosselin says, “She’s always a good friend of mine. Her family is so good. They took me in and I lived there for a while. I love them to death.”
But for now, they’re on a bit of a break. “She doesn’t like this [craziness]. She loves me for who I am and not for what I do,” he says. “We are going to chill out for a while and see where it takes us. I’m not looking for anyone.”
As for Major, the former Star magazine reporter he’s been spotted with, Gosselin says, “We are just friends.”
Despite all the questions about his life as a new bachelor, Gosselin still has the same priorities. “I’m just trying to concentrate on my family first, second my career. That’s what I have to do,” says Gosselin, who will be heading home to see his family in the days ahead. “I’m really looking forward to it – to turning my phone off, playing with my kids in the pool and being the dad.”
He’ll also be shooting scenes for Jon & Kate Plus Eight, which returns to TLC on Aug. 3. “Kate and I are just showing how we are going to live,” he says of the show, which will follow him and Kate Gosselin as they raise their children in the wake of their decision to divorce. “If she’s got to work, I go home. If I’ve got to work, she stays home. And that’s the way it’s always been.”
Don’t expect to see the Gosselin children meeting dad’s new girlfriend anytime soon. “I don’t want to introduce anyone to my kids,” he says. “We just have to play it by ear. I don’t know what it’s like to be divorced.”
It really seems like Jon really wants to back away from this Kate Major woman. Truth be told, she seems a bit psycho. The whole thing with Hailey Glassman was that her crazy was mostly because she was young and dumb. I think Kate Major’s got real issues, though. Rush & Malloy have some sources who claim that when Kate first came to New York from Los Angeles, she admitted she was a call back in LA, and was looking to make some “money on the side” there in New York. Of course, Kate Major denies the whole thing:
Reality show star Jon Gosselin’s latest love interest is a hardworking reporter, but was she ever a working girl? Fetching tabloid scribe Kate Major is vigorously denying claims that she once admitted to being a call girl.
Back in January, Major, who until this week worked at Star magazine, went out for drinks at the Thompson Hotel with Steppin’ Out magazine columnist Chaunce Hayden.
According to Hayden, Major, 26, at one point asked if he had “contacts with money who … how can I say this? … want the company of an attractive blond for the evening and have the cash to afford it?”
“I’ve been working as an escort in L.A. and now that I’m here in New York, I thought I could get some clients on the side,” Hayden recalls Major saying. He also remembers her saying that she charged $1,500 an hour – and her asking if he could introduce her to former madam Kristin Davis.
Davis, whose client list allegedly included former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, Bernie Madoff and Alex Rodriguez, says she and Major exchanged several e-mails on Jan. 28, which we’ve seen. Since Davis was too busy to meet, Davis says, she agreed to talk with Major on the phone.
“She wanted to pick my brain about the New York market,” Davis says. “She said she had a few of her own clients in New York. She asked if I had clients I could refer. I said I’m not in the business anymore.”
Major calls the account “pathetic, sick and all lies. By no means would I ever have “escort” in my vocabulary.”
“The only Kristin Davis I know is the actress from ‘Sex and the City,’” Major insists. Despite the e-mails apparently sent from her BlackBerry, she maintained, “I don’t know who Kristin Davis the madam is.”
Could Major have been putting Hayden on? Could the intrepid reporter have been trying to unmask Davis’ celebrity clients by pretending she was an escort? Major would only say, “I have never been an escort!” So whatever affection she’s giving Gosselin must be free.

Meh. I could see either side of that one. It’s perfectly possible that a mildly attractive blonde in LA would get work as an escort. But I seriously doubt she was some $1500 a night hooker. Let’s get real. Of course, that’s what I thought about Ashley DuPre too, and she was a four-diamond hooker or whatever. And I definitely doubt Kate Major is charging Jon anything… maybe she’s taking her fee in John Hardy shirts?
Note by Celebitchy: Jon has issued a statement to E! Online in which he admits that he “cares for” Kate Major. It sounds like he’s trying to make sure she’s going to stick around despite his statement that they’re “just friends.”
“I care about Kate Major, she resigned from her job for me. Right now, my focus is on my relationship with my kids. My personal relationship is private,” he says in an exclusive statement to E! News.
