Jon and Kate plus eight children equals ratings gold for TLC.
Jon and Kate plus one rumored affair, meanwhile, equates to non-stop fodder for celebrity gossip outlets.
Earlier today, we reported on a source that swears Jon Gosselin is cheating on his wife with Deanna Hummel.
However, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, both halves of this reality TV couple responded to the allegations and appeared to stand by one another (with Kate unable to resist a jab at Jon's judgment, of course).
Here's what each had to say about the story and the photo of Jon and Deanna leaving a club together:
Jon Gosselin: It's really upsetting. I may be guilty of choosing the wrong time and place to hang out with my friends, but I am not guilty of cheating on my wife. It hurts me to see what it's done to my family, and it's scary to know that these tabloids are in town constantly following us and even paying locals large amounts of money to contribute to these negative stories. It's even gotten so bad that [one tabloid] has reached out to a youth pastor from our church, which in my eyes is completely unacceptable.
Kate Gosselin: It's disturbing and unfortunate that these tabloids have gone as far as they have to try and bring us down. Jon's poor judgment and irresponsible behavior has also without a doubt caused some added tension and stress between the two of us.
Jon and Kate Gosselin were a happy couple on the day they renewed their wedding vows. Eight children and one reality TV show later? Not as much.
