When Jon Gosselin was accused of cheating on his wife, the reality star issued a simple, relatively calm statement that denied all charges.
The same can't be said for Kate Gosselin.
A day after reports linked her to her bodyguard and/or personal trainer, the mother of eight went off on paparazzi and irresponsible gossip tabloids everywhere.
"The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family," Kate told People. "Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified."
Referring to Steve Neild, the couple's bodyguard, and his family, Gosselin added:
"These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end. Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we've spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team ... they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."
Overall, Kate says she has no idea how to stop the supposedly erroneous reporting.
"The scary thing for me is [the tabloids] are going to take information and create a story. It's a matter of, 'When will they stop?' They're going to keep going, and they'll make up stuff to connect the dots."
