First lets get to the stats: (From Radar) "There hadn’t been a new
episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 since June 22 when the pair announced they were divorcing and based on the ratings for Monday night’s return on TLC, there was a lot of pent-up interest in tumultuous life of Jon and Kate Gosselin. Four million viewers tuned in for the new 9 PM episode and 4.2 million for the new 9:30 PM show. Although the numbers don’t compare to the big divorce-reveal show, that was an hour-long episode. These new numbers represent a considerable jump over 30-minute episodes from last season.
Not seen on Monday nights shows, however, was Jon’s new babysitter Stephanie Santoro. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, she’s a 22-year-old former cocktail waitress who has sleep-over duty. "
Jon Has Kid's "BabySitter" Sleep Over! (Radar.com)
"While Kate Gosselin has been taking the kids camping, Jon Gosselin has been having his own version of sleepovers. Jon’s new nighttime pal is a woman he hired to babysit his kids, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively! Providing more drama off screen than in front of it, Jon spent the night with Stephanie Santoro, 23, a cocktail waitress, single mom and aspiring model whose online resume reveals she’s willing to pose nude! And while Stephanie has told people Jon hired her to babysit the kids, RadarOnline.com has all the details of their recent sleepover, including photos of the most recent night Jon and his new pal spent at his house.
Jon and Stephanie, who works part-time at Legends, Jon’s favorite night spot in Reading, Pa., spent Saturday night there, with Stephanie sitting at his table most of the time. They left together at a little before 3 a.m., an eyewitness told RadarOnline.com. (The club closed at 2 a.m. but they stayed inside.) They drove together in Jon’s car back to the family home in Wernersville where Stephanie spent the night in Jon’s apartment over the garage. Hmm…not exactly where you would expect the babysitter to sleep! Stephanie stuck her head out at approximately 7:15 a.m. Sunday, wearing the same outfit as the night before. Jon called her back in and soon they left in separate cars.
Jon, meanwhile, has gone dating-crazy since leaving his marriage. He has dated Hailey Glassman, 22, and Kate Major, 26. He has told both women he is still dating them.
Stephanie, meanwhile, wouldn’t confirm her romantic liason with Jon, despite being told of photographic proof. And, in fact, RadarOnline.com has confirmed that she had been babysitting Jon’s kids before their recent night out together! She’s even brought her 2-year-old child to the Gosselin residence, before the sleepover of course!"
Kate Major Spills The Beans About Short Affair: MyFoxPhilly.com
"The fired tabloid reporter who claims she hooked up with Jon Gosselin spills the beans tonight. (11:30 ET Wed.) Kate Major, the 26-year-old Allentown, Pa., native, will “tell all” in a three-part interview on E! this week. Since Major knew Jon Gosselin for about 10 days, it may be a short interview. Major publicly claimed she was dating Gosselin, the reality TV dad, on Star Magazine’s Web site and quit her job on the same day as making that statement.
After her public announcement, Major was vilified by a host of gossip sites about her past as a gossip reporter – and willingness to get close to her subjects. But now, Major will tell E! that people misunderstand her. "I would be lying if I said there wasn't instant chemistry between us," Major said of Gosselin in parts of the interview released by E!
"Do I regret anything? Not really," Major told E! One bombshell from the interview: Major did interview Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselin’s other rumored girlfriend, just before Major told the world she was dating Gosselin, and not Glassman. "Would I do it again? Probably not," she admits to E! Major did confirm to E! that she is not seeing Gosselin anymore.
Major took Jon Gosselin on a brief trip to Long Island to hang out with Michael Lohan, one of Major’s former interview subjects. Shortly after that, Gosselin returned to Pennsylvania to be with his family. Last week, Us Magazine joined fellow entertainment site Radar Online to paint a not-so-pleasant picture of Major. The connection between Major, who was described by sources in the Us Magazine article as a “stalker” and Gosselin goes back to March, when Major broke the story that Gosselin was seen partying with college volleyball players at a bar in Juniata University.
Months later, Major showed up at the gate of the Gosselin estate in Wernersville, Pa., seeking an interview with Jon Gosselin. That meeting led to a weekend dinner in Manhattan, and a getaway to Long Island at Michael Lohan’s house. Us reported that Jon Gosselin dumped Major before he headed back home to look after his children, while Kate Gosselin left the couple’s estate. He also reportedly dumped Hailey Glassman because of reports about Glassman’s hard-partying past. Ironically, Gosselin has signed a deal with agent Mike Heller at Talent Resources, who has business connections with Lindsay Lohan. Jon Gosselin is legally married to but separated from Kate Gosselin.
