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?

There are two sides to every story. Now Kate Major, Jon Gosselin's new love interest, is sitting down to tell hers. In an exclusive interview with E! tomorrow night, she will talk about where things stand between her and Gosselin.

She'll also describe how they met, what their relationship meant for Hailey Glassman, and the future Major is hoping for with the 32-year-old father of eight.

"I would be lying if I said there wasn't instant chemistry between us," says Kate Major of Jon Gosselin, whom she met earlier this year while she was working as a reporter for Star, covering the unraveling of his 10-year marriage.

The two of them went out to dinner the following night.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

Kate Major, a.k.a. Kate 2.0, is dishing on love at first sight.

"Do I regret anything? Not really," Major says, although, apparently she has had some second thoughts. "Would I do it again? Probably not," she admits.

Major also opens up about interviewing both Gosselin and his first postmarital lover, Hailey Glassman, whom Jon spent a weekend with in St.-Tropez and was rumored to have gotten engaged to two weeks before being spotted out with Major.

"Right now, there is no happily ever after," Kate Major reveals. However, "[I was] really, really impressed - and I still am - with the person that he is."

"It's a huge relief to finally talk," she says. "I haven't been speaking a lot in the past few days because of how crazy everything is, but I'm ready to talk."

Here's a little sneak preview of Kate Major's interview ...

With Jon and Kate Plus 8 set to return to TLC Monday, will some of the new people in the recently-separated Gosselins’ lives be featured on the show?

“As far as new people that may be cycling into Jon and Kate’s lives, we’re taking it on a case-by-case basis,” said TLC General Manager Eileen O’Neill.

But we will see Kate's bikini body (the best revenge) as well as the hilarity that is “Jon struggling in the kitchen trying to make pizza for his kids.”

Zzz. We want Hailey Glassman cat fights! Instead, it looks like we'll get:

“You’ll see what its like when Kate has to put a tent up for the first time for her kids, who love to camp in their backyard. Then Kate gets a little advice from her daughter, who doesn’t think she does it quite as well as dad,” O'Neill adds.

In the past two weeks alone, Jon Gosselin has said his "heart is with Hailey," that he is "in a relationship with Kate Major" and that he is “single - per se,” and that, “I don’t want to introduce anyone [I'm dating] to my kids.”

Sooner or later, these contradictory statements have to backfire. We just hope it's televised when that happens. Here's Jon back at home yesterday ...

Given that the show has basically become Jon and Kate Separ8, one wonders how long TLC can keep airing the show and pretending everything is normal. We'll find out!

Who sucks worse?

Before setting out for Pennsylvania to cover Jon and Kate Gosselin for Star Magazine, reporter Kate Major joked to friends, "I could be the next Kate!"

Turns out that's exactly what happened.

It was not long before the 26-year-old began a torrid fling with Jon - all while he was still hitting it with family-friend-turned-girlfriend Hailey Glassman.

When she met Jon at his $1.1 million home July 17, it was love at first sight for Kate Major. It began when Jon's bodyguard asked her to move her car.

“I introduced myself as a reporter and said, 'I’d like to meet Jon,'" Major recalls. The bodyguard’s response to her inquiry? “I bet he wants to meet you.”

At that point, the bodyguard snapped a cell phone photo of Kate and texted it to Jon Gosselin, who wrote back immediately, “Yes! I want to talk to her.”

So basically, Jon is being pimped out by his bodyguard. Soon enough, she was inside his house. Shortly after, he was inside her ... gossip magazine.

A whirlwind romance - and love triangle - followed immediately.

  • Jon and Kate 2.0
  • Jon Gosselin, Kate Major, Jill Zarin

Hailey Glassman, Jon's 22-year-old play thing, was completely clueless (which is par for the course for her) about Kate Major and her romance with Jon that she even gushed to Kate about Jon when the trio met for an interview at Starbucks.

"I felt conflicted about liking Jon when I realized how nice [Hailey] was - I felt so bad for her,” Kate Major said afterward. “But I didn’t plan anything.”

Jon Gosselin says he is single now, and focused only on his kids. But he and the former Star reporter (she resigned due to a conflict of interest, as if anyone takes Star seriously anyway) spent Friday in NYC and the weekend in the Hamptons.

"Jon had an appointment in New York City," a source said. "Jon had a meeting and Kate needed to pick up some clothes. Then they headed back to the Hamptons."

The reality TV dad and Kate 2.0 have been staying with Michael Lohan, and on their most recent trip out to Long Island, they dined at Red Bar Brasserie with The Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin and her husband Bobby (above).

Who should Jon Gosselin date?

Unlikely ladies man Jon Gosselin can't seem to make up his mind as to which rebound girlfriend he's sticking with, according to today's New York Daily News.

First, he brought 22-year-old party girl Hailey Glassman on a romantic trip to St. Tropez. They went public and gushed about their feelings for one another.

Then, despite reports that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was mad at rumors of him being romantically involved with Kate Major, the reality TV dad is all talk.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major, 26, who resigned from Star last week after "falling for Jon," returned from the Hamptons to Manhattan Friday because "Jon had a business meeting and Kate needed to pick up some clothes," according to a source.

Wonder who that "source was." And what that "business meeting" consisted of.

The new couple were said to have gone back to the Hamptons after that, where Jon was seen playing football on the beach with friends, including you know-who.

Despite Jon Gosselin's recent hiring of PR firm Rubenstein Communications, it appears his shady BFF Michael Lohan has taken on the role himself pro bono.

"He's fantastic, upbeat and said that he just wants to concentrate on his kids," Lohan said, completely contradicting what Jon has actually been doing.

"Jon is not with either one right now," Lindsay's father said of Hailey Glassman and Kate Major. "He's not concentrating on a relationship with any woman."

While Jon Gosselin says dating multiple women is not like his character, and he is focused on his kids, his words and actions in recent weeks beg to differ.

Just two nights ago, Jon confirmed that he is in fact dating Kate Major.

"I care about Kate Major, she resigned from her job for me," Gosselin told E!. "Right now, my focus is on my my kids. My personal relationship is private."

Gosselin may not know what "private" means, as he spends his days posing for the paparazzi, befriending attention-craving losers and dating a reporter.

Who knows what the true player will say or do next. Just another week in the life of a newly-single stud. All we can do is tune in and be entertained.

Who do you think Jon Gosselin should date?

Jon Gosselin sure keeps himself in the news - and people guessing.

Whether he's hanging out with Michael Lohan (great PR strategy) or dating two chicks at the same time, the guy keeps surprising the celebrity news world.

Yesterday, Jon said that he and Hailey Glassman are taking a break, despite their recent romantic trip to St. Tropez and mutual gushing about one another.

The latest revelation: Jon Gosselin and Kate Major are dating.

In an exclusive statement to E! News, Jon says he's in a relationship with Kate Major, the former Star Magazine reporter, but that relationship is "private."

Sure it is, Jon. Keep telling yourself that as you hang at NYC hot spots and issue cryptic, attention-grabbing comments to People magazine 2-3 times a day.

"I care about Kate Major, she resigned from her job for me. Right now, my focus is on my relationship with my kids. My personal life is private," he said.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major

Jon Gosselin can say he's focused on his kids all he wants. That doesn't change that every time we see him, he's squiring Hailey Glassman, Kate Major, or both.

Kate Major declined to comment on her relationship with Gosselin, which he supposedly denied last week while calling her a liar and saying he was "tricked."

We honestly cannot keep track anymore.

Over the weekend, Kate Major commented that while she understands the scrutiny that comes along with dating the reality TV dad, but "I want people to know I am a nice and genuine person and anyone who knows me knows that."

The same certainly cannot be said of Jon, who apparently two-timed the girl he cheated on his wife (who he is not even divorced from yet) with. Player.

So much for his heart being with Hailey. Though it's hilariously ironic that she went from the mistress to the scorned girlfriend in a matter of like 72 hours.

Jon Gosselin may have been seen with Kate Major lately, but he says he is a one-woman man. That one woman is Hailey Glassman, of course, not his wife Kate.

"My heart is always with Hailey," the d-bag father of eight told Us Weekly at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets field in Bridgehampton, N.Y.

Hello? Major Douchebag Here

Hailey Glassman, 22, is the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate Gosselin's free tummy tuck, as depicted on Jon & Kate Plus 8. The irony.

Jon and Hailey have been hitting it for a little while now, and went public on a romantic trip to St. Tropez. But then he sparked controversy with a couple of appearances with Kate Major in New York and in the Hamptons the following week.

She said they were dating. This was news to Hailey.

Gosselin says rumors of him being romantically involved with Major are lies and that dating multiple women is "not me." One woman while still married? All good.

Kate Major resigned from her job as a reporter at Star, citing a conflict of interest for "falling for him." Jon says they are just friends and Kate Major is a liar.

In any case, Jon Gosselin has been hanging out with Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael, in Southampton for the past week. Talk about good for your image.

Yesterday afternoon, the troubled tandem went shopping at J.Crew, where Gosselin spent a hefty $423.05 on T-shirts, flip flops and boxer shorts.

Kate Major was not present.

According to sources reportedly close to Jon Gosselin, he says that he never had a relationship with celebrity gossip reporter Kate Major and was "tricked" by her.

Hailey Glassman can breathe a huge cloud of marijuana smoke sigh of relief.

Major suddenly resigned from Star Thursday after announcing to the world a night earlier that she was romantically involved with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad.

Jon is reportedly distraught, however, over Kate Major's claims that they are an item, telling a close pal that despite her statements, this is not the case.

"Oh my God, I can't believe she did this to me," Gosselin told the source, quoted by Radar Online. "What do I do? She's totally (bleeping) me over?"

Whatever their relationship is, Jon and Kate Major had dinner with Michael Lohan and Jill Zarin in the Hamptons this week. Michael told Radar, the same source, that Jon and Kate slept at his house on Long Island that evening.

Jon also went to dinner with Kate Major last Saturday night, as she wanted to get details for a story she was writing. But her announcement that they were romantically involved and sudden resignation from her job caught him off guard.

"She just wanted to put herself in the spotlight," the source said.

The 26-year-old Major, who said she is "falling for Jon Gosselin" despite not intending for it to happen, is not exactly getting support from those who know her.

Her dad refused comment when asked about his daughter’s relationship with Jon Gosselin, saying, "No comment. I don't want to be involved in this whatsoever.”

Jon has been dating stoner party girl and family friend Hailey Glassman, 22, who said she had no knowledge of a romantic relationship between Jon and Major.

While he's out possibly giving it to every mediocre girl in sight, the other Kate in his life (his grating ex-wife) took two of her daughters, 8-year-old twins Cara and Mady, to see the Jonas Brothers last night at their concert in Philadelphia.

The trio and one of the twins' friends arrived at the show, which started shortly after 7 p.m., in a black stretch limo. Kate Gosselin had no comment on her Ed Hardy-loving, hair-plugged, douchebag estranged husband's sexual exploits.

Kate Major, the reporter who has allegedly started dating Jon Gosselin in the past week, has resigned from her position at Star Magazine, effective today.

"Star Magazine Senior Reporter Kate Major resigned this morning, Thursday, July 23, citing a conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin," reads a statement on Star's website.

Conflict of interest? That implies Star had credibility to begin with.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major were first spotted Saturday at NYC restaurant Accademia di Vino, then made headlines this week when they had dinner in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan and Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin.

"I think it's authentic," Zarin told Us Weekly of Gosselin's relationship with Kate Major. "I think it's fast. I think it happened very quickly."

Gosselin has yet to confirm a romance with Major, but the news comes less than a week after Gosselin admitted he was dating Hailey Glassman, the stoner daughter of the surgeon who performed soon-to-be-ex-wife Kate's tummy tuck.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

WHAT A PLAYER: Not only is Jon Gosselin apparently dating two chicks at the same time, he is still married to someone else! And has eight kids with her! Classy.

As if this story weren't hilarious and weird enough as it is, no one was more surprised to hear about Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend than Hailey Glassman herself.

"That's news to me," Glassman told People when she asked about the rumors that Kate Major, 26, is now an item with Jon Gosselin. Talk about awkward, People.

Us Weekly quotes Major as confirming the relationship, saying: "I didn't mean it to happen, it just did. I went to do a story on him and ended up falling for Jon."

Just a few days ago, Hailey Glassman, 22, was gushing about Jon: "This is perfect. It just fits," she said, possibly confusing him with her mouth and a bong.

Although Hailey knew that Jon and Kate Major were hanging out in the Hamptons together this week, she didn't realize the trip may have turned romantic.

"I still love Jon and Jon loves me," a teary Glassman said.

Kate Major, the Star magazine reporter who has seen twice with Jon Gosselin including last night in the Hamptons, claims to be dating the father of eight.

"I didn't mean for it to happen, it just did," said the 26-year-old, as quoted by Us Weekly. "I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him."

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major were first spotted together Saturday at NYC restaurant Accademia di Vino, where she was "flirting shamelessly with Jon."

On Tuesday, the two dined in the Hamptons with Lindsay Lohan's father Michael Lohan (who is pals with Major, apparently). This makes perfect sense. Jon and Michael probably did some serious bonding over the exploitation of their kids.

Also on hand? Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, whom Jon Gosselin asked "for media advice," says a source of the Southampton, N.Y. dinner.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Major

Jon Gosselin has not confirmed that he and Kate Major are an item. If they are, that gives Hailey Glassman another reason to cry in her beer. Like she needs one.

Last week, Jon announced he and Hailey Glassman - the daughter of the surgeon who performed Kate Gosselin's tummy tuck - were romantically involved.

The two went on a trip to St. Tropez together and party girl Hailey took time away from taking bong hits to praise Jon to People magazine earlier this week.

Could Jon G. be two-timing the woman with whom he was two-timing his painful wife (who he is still technically married to)? Is it even a lateral move?

Either way, sounds like (Kate) Major drama! Stay tuned!
