Echoing a sentiment many of us have had over the past month, Kate Major is wondering what she was thinking when she hooked up with Jon Gosselin.

"It's been a complete whirlwind these past two weeks now," the former Star reporter, who met the married-but-separated d-bag at his Pennsylvania home while on assignment, said. "I wake up some days and I think, 'What was I thinking?'"

Already Split!

It's easy to see how she got sucked in, though. What a catch!

"He's a great, great guy," Major told E! Online of Jon Gosselin. "I wish I could think of something wrong with the guy but there really isn't. But. it's kinda hard to be really romantic when you're being followed constantly."

As for Kate 1.0, Kate 2.0 says Jon has nothing but praise.

"People grow apart, people change - but as a mother he speaks very highly of Kate [Gosselin]," said Kate Major, the second of three reputed Jon play things.

Kate Major can only reflect on a whirlwind romance gone haywire.

Major admits to "overstepping [her] boundaries" by getting involved with Jon Gosselin, and the moment she left the celebrity gossip magazine that used to employ her is the one she considers to be the "low point" of this whole experience.

"It's been really hard. I've pretty much had to go into hiding. I just felt it was obviously a conflict of interest, to say the least. Yes, I made a mistake."

But Kate Major felt the pull of "instant chemistry" with Jon Gosselin, who confirmed on at least one occasion that he and Kate were in a relationship.

"It happened very quickly," she recalled. "I even said, 'I feel like I've known you my whole life.'" You may vomit on cue if you're reading this at home.

Meanwhile, Hailey Glassman, who was dating Jon when he met Major, said Thursday, "We've always been together," when they were spotted walking hand-in-hand in N.Y. State. Looks like Kate 2.0 might have just been played by a true player.

Who should Jon Gosselin date?

As rumors continue to circulate that Paula Abdul and American Idol may not be officially divorced just yet (or if they are, that a reconciliation is still on the table), new reports say that for $10 million a year, she'll still come back.

Well-connected American Idol sources say they haven't closed the door on her Season 9 return, even though they have not communicated with Abdul since her farewell Tweet earlier this week, and auditions start today, sans Paula.

Reports say Paula was not happy with the offer American Idol made to her but was willing to sign - just days before her supposedly deal-breaking Tweet of heart.

She felt "disrespected" by executives who had offered Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest a lot more than they offered her. That "disrespectful offer," TMZ says, was in the neighborhood of $4 million a year. Paula would re-up for $10 million.

So even if this isn't a publicity stunt, it does appear there's wiggle room for Paula to return at the right price. Or is there? Other reports tell a conflicting story ...

Here's where it gets fishy, though. An EW source says Abdul was offered a 30 percent raise, which she declined, that would have amounted to over $10 million.

That source says she was angling for $20 million.

“Everyone thinks she’s off her rocker to pass up money like that,” says one connected reality show agent to EW. “She’ll never get even $5-10 million on a start-up show. It’s never going happen. She may have overplayed her hand.”

Addressing rumors of an Abdul move to Idol's "sister" show, a Fox insider says it would be a boon to So You Think You Can Dance (which just crowned Jeanine Mason, 18, its winner last night), but there’s “no way” she'd earn nearly as much.

That’s why many Hollywood observers think she will swallow her pride and go back to the show that (re)made her a star. Even for a paltry $5-10 million.

Andrea McNulty, the woman accusing the Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, of sexual assault, says she's been receiving "hundreds of annoying phone calls" since filing her civil lawsuit - including threats on her life.

She filed a police report in Nevada at the end of June, claiming her phone has been ringing off the hook with people who can't wait to call her a "whore."

Andrea McNulty also claims that some people have been threatening her to drop the lawsuit against Ben Roethlisberger or "something's going to happen."

McNulty gave up a few of the numbers to police, who advised her it would be a good idea to acquire an unlisted number of her own. Might be a good idea.

Ben Roethlisberger adamantly denies sexually assaulting Andrea McNulty.

McNulty makes some serious allegations against Big Ben, but the case boils down, in many ways, to a he-said-she-said scenario with no other witnesses.

Roethlisberger's attorney notes that no criminal complaint was lodged over the incident which is said to have occurred a year ago now. McNulty says Ben forced himself on her and would not stop, he says everything was consensual.

There is also the issue of her mental state at the time.

Do you believe Andrea McNulty?

Jude Law's pregnant ex-lover Samantha Burke is doing a nice job carrying his love child, and that thing is really growing fast these days. Which we can tell by the photos she frequently takes of her baby bump and puts online, of course!

Here's Sam's latest progress report on baby Sophia ...

Jayden James and Bodyguard

Samantha Burke, 24, is a very cute pregnant person.

Not that the transformation has been immediate. Just a few months back, the former Hooters waitress and aspiring model was looking pretty darn thin.

A Jackson family source says that despite a recent collection of reports claiming that Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, is convinced of foul play in her son's June 25 death, "there is neither a plan nor a need for another autopsy."

But it's not that another autopsy is unplanned and unnecessary. It may also be impossible, thanks to the current state of the music star's remains.

Vintage Michael Jackson

All tissues and samples, including his brain, were already removed, making Jackson's body more or less "a shell" of little or no forensic value.

But whether or not Katherine's alleged paranoia is warranted, Los Angeles Deputy Medical Examiner Dr. Paul Gliniecki says a third autopsy is not.

Gliniecki says another autopsy "would be totally pointless," thanks to the detail that went into the first examination of the late icon's body.

The results of which are indefinitely delayed.

The legendary Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

"Especially in a high-profile case like this, [the first autopsy] was probably done very well. We can still run more tests, but the toxicology results are compromised because they replace blood with embalming fluids. It changes the chemistry."

"During an autopsy, everything is sliced and diced ... and everything mixes together. Even a second autopsy is significantly compromised."

Police and DEA agents continue to investigate Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael's personal physician, and his role in Jackson's untimely demise.

After a record-breaking 21.6 million votes, Jeanine Mason, at just 18 years old, took the win last night on So You Think You Can Dance, and the adorable Floridian could not be more surprised that she won title on the show's fifth season.

"It honestly feels like nothing right now. I just feel numb from head to toe. I know when it does hit me, I'll probably run around my apartment 5,000 times screaming at the top of my lungs. Other than that, I'm just so excited to be here," said Jeanine.

Caitlynn Lawson and Mitchell Kelly

"Someone asked me earlier if I ever had a feeling I would get eliminated and I said 'Every week!' Every week you think you're about to go home. I'm so happy that I didn't go home and that I got voted America's favorite dancer, which is ridiculous."

At 18, Jeanine Mason has a very bright, dancing future.

Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe was also pleasantly surprised: "I'm delighted, I love surprises, and I think it was a bit of a surprise tonight," he said.

Known for her versatile talent and bubbly personality, Jeanine Mason was chosen by fans as the So You Think You Can Dance winner over leggy talent Kayla Radomski, technical genius Brandon Bryant, and Broadway baby Evan Kasprzak.

As for her nearest competition, Brandon, Jeanine praised him, saying "He is amazing. Brandon [Bryant] is such a strong dancer. I grew so much because he took me up to a level that I never thought I could go to. He made me just live there."

"He was not willing to bring down his strengths for me," she said of Brandon, who she calls more talented. "He's like, 'Jeanine, you're going to meet me there.' He's my Miami buddy, and we went up thinking, either way, it's a win for Miami."

Next up for the So You Think You Can Dance competitors comes a 40-city tour. After that, the top four are packing their bags and heading for L.A., except for Evan, who thinks Broadway could be in his future. Congrats to Jeanine et al!

These candid, poignant images of weight loss pitchman Kevin Federline kissing Victoria Prince in the photo booth at First Food & Bar at the Palazzo Las Vegas back on July 31 come to us courtesy of celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style.

What a touching portrait they paint.

In the City of Sin filming their reality show (seriously), it's good to see K-Fed still head over heels for Victoria Prince. And the random dude in there with them ...

Dania Ramirez has just become the newest face of CoverGirl, putting the beauty in the company of Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rihanna and more.

Speaking to People about joining the illustrious brand, the 29-year-old best known for her role as Maya on Heroes, jokes that while her deal may have just come to fruition in 2009, in her mind “it’s been in the works my whole life."

Rihanna in Vogue

"I’ve always dreamed of being a CoverGirl.”

Not that it’s always been an easy path for the Dominican Repbulic native:

CoverGirl has an appropriate spokesmodel in Dania Ramirez.

“I’m bringing my story, a story of struggle and hard work. Not speaking the language [when I got to America] and trying to figure out my definition of beauty, you learn to recognize the beauty in all of us. It takes a strong person to get where I’ve got.”

But of course, that doesn’t mean that Dania doesn’t love the girlier things in life, like CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain: “If I could walk around telling people how great this is, I would!” she enthuses. “It adds color to your lips and lasts so long.”

Kate Major and Stephanie Santoro who? Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman want the world to know they are still together and loving life as a couple.

They said this, themselves. It's not just a rumor.

Radar Online caught up with the controversial couple in New York State and as they emerged from a local Starbucks (strong coffee helps mask the smell of bong water), both of them said, on video, that they are still together.

While Jon has been seen with other women, most notably Kate 2.0 (Kate Major) and Stephanie Santoro, a cocktail waitress and his kids' babysitter, it was clear on this afternoon that despite the rumors, he’s all about Hailey Glassman.

Asked if they are still together, the hand-holding couple says yes. So what about all those rumors out there, Hailey? “Oy vey,” Glassman said with a smile.

Both emphatically denied a breakup with Hailey Glassman instructing people to not “believe everything you read.” Which, lately, has been quite a lot.

Much of it involving Jon Gosselin giving it to any creature that registers a pulse.

A decade removed from playing lovable loser Screech Powers on Saturday mornings, Dustin Diamond is writing a tell-all memoir about his days at Bayside High.

The book, titled Behind the Bell, hits shelves September 29. On the cover, a goateed Screech poses above a dated pic of his former Saved by the Bell co-stars.

Diamond was recently shunned from a Saved By the Bell reunion, and cropped out of a cast picture by People magazine, as a result of penning the memoir.

Here's the dirty author on the cover of his text ...

When it was announced in July 2008 that Dustin Diamond, who could certainly use the royalties to pay off his IRS tax lien, would pen a tell-all, Gotham Books was hyping up "sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying."

But Gotham later dropped the 32-year-old shortly after he turned in his manuscript, possibly due to the gross Dustin Diamond sex tape that featured the shady actor defiling a pair of girls with one particularly nauseating maneuver.

Behind the Bell has since been picked up by a small Montreal-based operation called Transit Publishing. We know at least one guy who will be buying it, too:

"This book is freaking incredible!" Diamond's agent, Jarred Weisfeld, has said. "Everyone that reads it loves it. It is truly one of my favorites of all time."

We doubt Mark-Paul Gosselaar shares that assessment.
