Kate Gosselin has Thanksgiving with bodyguard Steve Neild

Kate Gosselin Leaves CNN Building of “LARRY KING LIVE” with Steve by Her Side!

Jon Gosselin was not invited to Kate Gosselin’s Thanksgiving celebrations. Neither was her brother. Instead, Kate invited her bodyguard/rumored lover Steve Neild over. And he brought his wife and family. Which begs the question – are Kate and Steve really hittin’ it? They’ve both denied it in the past, but the rumors have persisted. It could totally be that they’re close friends, and that he’s one of the few people that she trusts, and his wife is okay with their relationship. Okay enough to go to Kate’s for Thanksgiving, at least.

Kate Gosselin spent Thanksgiving with her eight children, plus bodyguard/best friend Steve Neild, his wife Ginaand their kids.

This is Kate’s first Thanksgiving in a decade without soon-to-be-ex husband Jon, and she’s estranged from her brother Kevin Kreider who reconciled with Jon last month — follow that? — so who better to share turkey with than the Neilds? The festive dinner took place at the Gosselin’s Wernersville, PA home.

Although there were once rumors that Kate and Steve were more than bodyguard and bodyguardee — rumors Jon helped promote — Kate has spoken about how much she has relied on Steve and Gina for support through her divorce. “They’re my best friends,” Kate said.

Jon & Kate Plus 8, the TV show, is now cancelled and a part of TV history. Jon & Kate’s marriage should be history by the end of December.

Well, it’s nice that Kate got to spend time with her “best friends” during the holiday. Meanwhile, as I said, Jon was not welcome to celebrate with his kids. Jon told the New York Daily News that his Thanksgiving plans were to spend time with his grandmother, although Hailey Glassman tweeted: “LOL-U are in Utah snowboarding w/”friends”-lol-ur redic.” So… he didn’t spend time with his grandmother? Lord. And he did not spend any time with Hailey Glassman of her family, from what I can tell – even though a month ago he was talking about Thanksgiving at their house. Apparently, the split was for real and he’s no longer welcome anywhere near the Glassman family. Good stuff.

    Jon was said to have admitted in so many words that he was just trying to deflect attention from his own tabloid press when he made this stuff up about Kate and the bodyguard. Sorry, but I do not believe that Neild’s wife would be at the Gosselin compound for Thanksgiving unless she were sure there’s nothing going on between her husband and Kate. Maybe there’s an attraction, but they’ve decided to be grownups–whatever.

  2. Firestarter says:

    Well, I seriously doubt that if they were having an affair, the wife would have happily gone to Kate’s for Thanksgiving. No woman is THAT understanding and forgiving, even at Thanksgiving.

    I wasn’t aware Jon perpetuated those rumors, well now it all makes sense. Deflect attention off your own wrong doings by accusing someone else of doing things!

    Jon is still, IMO, the more disgusting of the two.

    Glad Hailey called him out on his snowboarding holiday. How is it he affords all these trips AND cigarettes?

  3. Kevin says:

    Man! Bitches be lovin nem sum bodyguards yo! Guarding people like this (pseudo stars) is a gravy gig. All you have to deal with is the scum paps. Dunno if I could get too worked up for a lady with 8 kids tho. Maybe that’s just me. Have to be one heck of a Christmas bonus involved.

  4. Madchen says:

    I dunno… I think your title might be a cheap shot. Why add fuel to Jon’s fire of lies? Looks like friends is friends.

  5. Tess says:

    Maybe I’m just a skeptic but I wonder about this “friendship.”
    …. the old Watergate meme comes to mind: Follow the money.

    It’s either real friendship or somehow the bodyguard (and wife) believe there’s something in it for them.
    Somehow, I just tend to believe money’s in the mix.

  6. Missy says:

    No family for the kids to share the holiday with? They have to celebrate with their moms bodyguard? I think Kate did have an affair with her bodyguard and the wife probably believes the ‘Jon started the rumors’ story too because it’s easier to live in denial when your husband is stepping out with someone younger and prettier.

  7. Beth says:

    The wife and Kate have spent time together before Thanksgiving and the rumors came out. I really doubt she and the bodyguard had an affair. I don’t know if Jon started the rumors but he publically said he thought something was going on with them.

  8. BT in SA says:

    Why would Gina be taking a laptop with her to a Thanksgiving dinner? She has both an ugly pocketbook AND her laptop in her left hand. Aren’t you supposed to show up with a pie, instead?

    Just curious…

  9. filthy cute says:

    What does this useless bitch need a bodyguard for??

  10. lin234 says:

    When Letterman was having an affair with Stephanie, she went on family vacations, looked after their son, came by the house, and befriended his wife. (from an old intouch magazine I was flipping through) So who knows?

  11. maddie says:

    People it’s called GASLIGHTING and I would be shocked if it wasn’t true.

    Do you know how many people engaged in affairs do this, invite the affair partner into their lives and have them meet and interact with the spouse, it’s sick but it does happen.

    It will be the “were only friends” bit and the “what can’t I have friends of the opposite sex” vent.

    Like Lin234 said Letterman did it too.

  12. Tazina says:

    It certainly does sound like an unwarranted cheap shot for you to say that Kate might be having an affair with her bodyguard….obviously she isn’t – how much more obvious does it need to be? Take it for what it is – one of those small group of friends Kate can count on.

  13. bros says:

    does anyone else find it pathetic that Kate has no friends? the family has no friends. she has systematically cut everyone out of her life-she cant even spend thanksgiving with her parents and let her parents see their grandchildren and has to spend the holidays with her hired help. this woman is truly toxic.

  14. maddie says:

    @bros: Yes it’s pathetic and sad to boot that is why I struggle to understand how so many people mainly women defend this woman I watched the earlier shows and I had to stopped watching on how she treated Jon (yes he is an azzhatz) the person who is suppose to be her partner in life.

    How she cut off her immediate family members when the show became popular.

    No seems to see the correlation of her not having any close friends or family members in her life with her toxic narcissist personality.

  15. AG says:

    She’s doin’ him.

  16. CB Rawks says:

    Gaslighting means trying to make someone think they’re going crazy. Like putting leftovers in the fridge of stuff they never ate.
    I learned that on Reno 911. 🙂

  17. lin234 says:

    It’s not obvious or impossible. I think the rumors were leaked because Jon suspected she had cheated on him with the bodyguard during their marriage but never had proof. The press leaped onto the idea and ran away with it.

    It’s wouldn’t be surprising. Kate falls for older, protective man while bodyguard falls for younger woman he’s with all day and frequently takes trips with. Men have cheated on their wives with their wives sisters, best friends…and vice versa. It’s not a savory prospect but it’s within the realm of possibility.

    I wouldn’t trust a woman who had a book spouting family love and values (teaching people how to pray before dinner from america’s most loving family) while planning a divorce to tell the truth.

  18. maddie says:

    Yeah Cb the wife probably asked him if the rumors are true and he is spinning it as to why would I accept this invite and bring you and the kids to the house of the woman I’m cheating with I would be crazy to do that.

    Gaslighting is also making the person doubt there gut feelings.

  19. Firestarter says:

    Yeah, cause we all know what exactly is going on behind closed doors with Kate and her bodyguard.

    Because rumors float around, started by Jon, that makes the whole thing credible. Not like he would ever have an agenda or anything, that is strictly the evil Kate who has one.

    I love how people crucify her yet find ways to overlook his douche baggery. It’s the same with Chris Brown and Rihanna. SHE had to be the one that made Chris beat her, because he isn’t a horrible person otherwise. Jon is only acting out because evil Kate made him that way. Please!

  20. *Lee* says:

    This is so ridiculous. Sooooo…If I have my friends and their boyfriends/husbands over, I’m secretly sleeping with them? Or wait, is it that if I invite a male friend to dinner, and he brings his girlfriend/wife, and kids, we’re sleeping together then? It’s all so confusing?

    What makes anybody think this is happening? Because Jon said so? Why can’t people invite over who they want to their home, without it being this serious?

    And Jon was most likely not welcome because nobody felt like putting up with his crap. My son’s father and I are no longer together, we don’t spend every holiday together either, why would they be expected to?

  21. Corina says:

    I really have no idea if they’re having an affair or not, but the wife showing up to dinner doesn’t prove that they aren’t. If I suspected my husband of having an affair and the potential other women invited us for dinner, I would be right there with him to observe them together and assert my position as his wife.

  22. Anastasia says:

    She doesn’t strike me as someone who even enjoys sex.

    However, I do think it’s pathetic that she and her kids spent Thanksgiving with her bodyguard and his wife. She’s alienated everyone else.

  23. Goddess711 says:

    I think the most intriguing part of this story is that anyone would WANT to have T-Day dinner with her. I can’t imagine anybody being up for Tofurkey and lima beans. Isn’t she supposed to be some nutrition-crazed freak in the kitchen? I don’t care WHO had T-Day dinner with her, it couldn’t have been worth it and they probably ended up at Denny’s when she left.

  24. GatsbyGal says:

    They’re totally knockin’ boots.

  25. Firestarter says:

    Who would enjoy sex if they were having it with Jon Gosselin?

  26. Joann says:

    I think people need to leave Kate alone. I believe her when she says that she is not having an affair with her bodyguard. Jon has made her out to be the one in the wrong because he wants to take the pressure off himself. He is the ass in the picture. I hope in the end she is able to have a realty show with her 8 children and continue to support them in that manner because it was not hurting them until Jon got pulled out off the show.

  27. Jazz says:

    So are the paparazzi right on their front door step because the property looks too big for them to be getting the shots from the street. Kate has estranged herself from her entire family so no wonder she’s spending Thanksgiving with the bodyguard.

  28. Missy says:

    Yes Jon did start the rumors of an affair- but maybe because he had some suspicions? We don’t know if Kate is or is not having an affair, but it’s always funny to hear people insist they know it must not be true (or true!). We only know what TLC or the tabloids have filtered to us.

  29. Firestarter says:

    @Missy- Well if I were married to an a-hole like Jon, who was more of a kid then their own children, I would have an affair too. Well, I would not have married the idiot in the first place, and if I had, I would have quickly divorced him before having 8 kids with him.

    It amazes me how people still defend this man. I can’t stand either of them, but he is the most reprehensible one of all.

    Also, seems to me it was rather easy for him to start these rumors, when he himself was stepping out on Kate.

  30. jaundicemachine says:

    I think the fact that Kate’s only guests for Thanksgiving are the “hired help” is the key issue in this article. That, to me, speaks volumes about her personality and character, more than any rumor of an affair. The woman is a toxic person, and her children will suffer for it.

    But for the record, I’m suspicious the relationship as well.

  31. Maritza says:

    Kate has said many times they are more then “hired help”, they are her friends so its perfectly normal that she invite them. Their kids must be great friends too.

  32. Paul Stanley says:

    Please, the only reason Kate invited the bodyguards wife is because someone has to clean up and do the dishes.

  33. boo says:

    She doesn’t seem to have a sexual bone in her body so I doubt she’s hittin’ that. What kind of self respecting dude would be her “body guard”? He’s an accessory at best.

    Also, if she really cared about her kids she would have had Jon over for the day so the kids had both their parents for the holiday.

  34. Firestarter says:

    I do believe he made a point of saying he was spending the Holiday with his former lady love Hailey, and then he said he was spending the holiday with his grandmother, oddly enough he spent the holiday snowboarding. Doesn’t sound like he cared that much about spending the day with his kids anymore than she wanted him there.

    Actually I am not aware of many divorced couples who spend the holidays together with their families. Most alternate holidays, so why is it Kate has to be the one to have him around? The idea of a divorce is not having to spend time around someone you no longer want to be around. The cruelest thing one can do is force themselves to be around a person they hate and make everyone uncomfortable in the process. Kids are always happier when they are not around tense parents fighting each other.

  35. la chica says:

    she’s his boss. it’s not uncommon for bosses to invite an employee and his/her family to dinner.

    but Thanksgiving is special and Kate should have spent it with her own kids. especially in light of the rumors, which i personally don’t believe. if he wanted to bone a matronly-looking woman, he could just pork his own wife.

  36. lin234 says:

    @ firestarter:

    I don’t think people overlook Jon’s current douche behavior. I think people still defend Jon because of his past behavior for the last ten years. When the kids were young, he basically washed, dressed, fed them while Kate was nitpicking on everything. Kate herself once compared Jon to Cara where she described them as the type to let their emotions fester until they blow up all the sudden.

    In a lot of earlier seasons, their interaction basically boils down to Kate ordering Jon around then complaining about something that wasn’t done right. I feel as though he was in a emotionally abusive relationship where she completely controlled him, berated him constantly, and gave him “love taps”. Nothing he ever did was good enough. There was no respect there. In one of the interviews between Kate and Jon, she basically yelled at him for breathing the wrong way and constantly corrected him when he tried to talk.

    THAT is the Kate that people still see. Not the polished, pr controlled Kate that has been making the rounds since her divorce announcement.

    I don’t support Jon’s current escapades especially since he is a father figure to 8 little ones. But before all this, he was a devoted father. I believe that after Kate told him it was over, he decided to start going out. Quite frankly, I don’t see him as having enough balls to cheat on Kate until she told him she wanted a divorce. He was the one that wanted off the show before the divorce and Kate was the one who wanted to keep going.

    I don’t understand why people are attributing Kate’s controlling and rude behavior as a result to being married to Jon. There is a reason why she is attracted to a man like Jon. I’ve never heard a story where she was kind, and gracious to people she meets. Instead, there are plenty of stories with her being ill-tempered. These are two reality stars who both have lost sight of everything for fame and fortune.

  37. Rosie says:

    SAD! Thanksgiving dinner with the hired help! Reaping what she has sowed. Poor children. Make it all go away!

  38. Judy says:

    @lin234: Agree w/ every word you wrote.

  39. Thhbbb! says:

    @lin234: Exactly spot on!

  40. Zeanna says:

    I think it is a shame that so many people want to believe the worst has to be the truth. As far as the brother goes, I would not invite him or his bitch of a wife to anything. Kate has worked very hard to be a better person and to provide for her family. She had to know the window was closing before it even opened. Why not make as much as she could while she could. Jon couldn’t stand to stay home with his own children while she was promoting her books, again making money for the family. I do not believe she ever intended to have 8 children but like her I do not believe in abortion so if you have 8 lives inside you then so be it, you do all you can to keep them alive and support them when they are born. Give her a break, she has shown a lot of class during all of this and I for one hope she and the 8 have a good life without Jon. She never needed him, soon she will realize that and her future can begin.

    Cheaters always accuse their spouse of cheating. It’s called projection.
