Jon & Kate Plus 9. Jon & Kate & Deanna Hummel Plus 8. Jon & Deanna Plus an Ex-Wife and 8 Kids ... These titles don't seem to roll off the tongue, do they?
Perhaps for that reason, TLC is denying rumors that Jon Gosselin's mistress is joining the show when Jon & Kate Plus 8 it returns with new episodes in August.
Now that Jon and Kate Gosselin are separating, rumors swirled that teacher Deanna Hummel, 23, who has been seeing Jon this year, would come on board.
Not so much, says the network.
GIANT HOME WRECKER: Despite initial assertions that she and Jon are just friends, Deanna Hummel is widely believed to be the woman he was cheating on Kate with.
"There are no plans to use her," a rep for TLC said of the Deanna Hummel rumors. "We are in hiatus and all future episodes haven't even been planned."
The rumor was launched in today's New York Daily News, which said "Deanna's role isn't expected to be big, but because she's part of Jon's life, she'll be filmed."
Well, here's hoping they change their mind there. Imagine the kids asking their new stepmom whether that's really her getting pummeled on that sex video.
