Kate Gosselin: I Did Not Cheat With Steve Neild

Kate Gosselin: I Did Not Cheat With Steve Neild

Kate Gosselin, of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus Eight fame, is trying to stay one step ahead and shooting down rumors that she had an affair with bodyguard Steve Neild.

The 34-year-old mom-of-eight tells People, “The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family. Already the allegations they’re making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified.

“[Neild and his family] 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.

“I’m totally panicking, and thinking, ‘We are going to lose our last set of friends.’ I keep calling them, begging, ‘Seriously, I’m so sorry. Don’t run away from us.’ They keep saying, ‘We’re fine, we’re fine.’ But they have paparazzi in front of their house. It’s so upsetting.

“We opened our world to this but we willingly made a conscious decision to put this out there. Our friends and family did not. I had no idea we would potentially take down the people that we love around us. It’s like saying, ‘Thanks for your support, let me sic the paparazzi on you.’ It’s very very difficult. It leaves us, essentially, alone and friendless. It’s terrible.

“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.”

    This is a lovely family who does not deserve this ugly attention. Haters be damned, do away. We all have to do our part and stop buying these tabloids when we know they cover stories aren’t true. We are guilty, too. I admit I buy junk mags that I know are lying rags, just because I love to read. No more for me. Will make myself be more selective.

  • Kiley

    This is ridiculous. The media can never focus on anything positive. This family is awesome and they are tearing them down. It’s not fair to Jon and Kate or their children. Even IF either are cheating it should be between them not the entire world, which I HIGHLY doubt is happening.

  • lorenawoods

    well what in the hell do you expect kate??? for God’s sake, you have pimped out your entire family, to the point where they want nothing to do with you. and you wonder why you don’t have any friends??? good grief woman, look in the mirror. you’re the most egotistical, self-centered, anal retentive person ever seen on ANY reality show. too bad your children are suffering from this, because its not going to stop anytime soon.

    WHO THE F#UCK CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LolaSvelt

    ^I know. WHO CARES?!

    And 34? Please! She looks like she’s pushing 45.

  • snarkypants

    Already the allegations they’re making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified.

    And Kate, I am disgusted and horrified at the way you’ve exploited your children and treated your husband.

  • Pattycake

    These two are really a piece of work. Lovely people? They’ve pimped out their children so that they can be famous, live large and not work another day in their lives. They travel, they have guest appearance, are interviewed and photographed for magazines all the live long day. They are living the ultimate reality show. And now their real life is getting in the way of their reality. Just how long did they think they could continue to keep all the balls in the air? And keep it private? Wha? Since when have they kept ANYthing private? Oh, that’s right, that’s only if someone else picks up the bill. Since this is on their tab, it’s private. I do feel sorry….for the kids.

  • joss

    the consequences of being in the media and having a reality tv show..

  • lorenawoods

    snarky and patty, you are both correct!!!!!!!!!! and when their kids become victims of the “reality tv syndrome”, they will blame everyone else. what a shame.a real shame.

  • Jon and kate + 8 + “friends”

    Kate got some.
    How fug does Jon look in this pic?
    I am surprised anyone could get excited over him.

  • Lillianne

    We’ll see the kids show up on Intervention someday.

  • get out

    so here’s what she needs to do. Stop the reality show. That’s the only way people will lose interest in her family and that means the tabloids will also lose interest.

  • get out

    LoL @ his hair in that picture. he look retarded

  • sachet

    This weird woman would anything for attention. I bet she planted the story.

  • jo

    It’s a common strategy used by many semi-famous and highly famous – the best defence is a good offence. In other words play the victim and own very little responsibility for what is happening in your life based on the consequences of your own choices and behaviour. It’s tried and true at saving many a career and image. Now they just have to do a well planned out appreance on Oprah again and all will be good….until the next issue. Kate you chose this life willingly and freely it’s too bad you didnt see some of this coming or you didnt get better advice going into it but now your know so know better, do better but please be a good role for your kids and dont play the victim.

  • Cathey

    I can hardly wait to see these children as teenagers! They should be a real nice group. After a childhood that they have and those two as parents. Just what the world needs more mentally messed up people!

  • Had enough

    Oh Lordy Be! The show should be named “All About Kate”. Give the world a break and go home and tend to your kids and family.

  • Sally

    Can you believe it…another story about Kate Gosselin. I hope she is happy because it seems no one else in that family is. Careful for what you wish for because it might come true. Family & love is traded for Money & celebrity what a pity. I really can go on with my life without seeing anything else about her. And by the way…has anyone seen the new ad for their new summer season? Emeril is in “her” kitchen and she hits him with a spatula?!!! That has to be the most absurd thing I have ever seen. I only wish he would have hit her back….that would be worth watching!

  • bethj

    I remember when this show first came out. Kate was not nearly as bitchy as she is now. And WTF are they whining about how they are going to pay for college for all their kids when they live in a house worth over a million dollars? It’s sad that this family seems to have lost it’s priorities as they got more and more “famous.”

  • Laura

    Why can’t everyone just leave the two of them alone!!! they are just a regular family that happens to have twins and sextuplets and their own show!! why does everyone have to make a big deal about them cheating on each other!! i actually enjoy the show and yea kate might not be the nicest person at times but you try have 8 kids and camera people around all the time and i don’t think that you would be all happy and joyful either!

  • Lillianne

    They are the ones who chose this lifestyle for themselves and their children. This is just a part of their reality.

  • snarkypants

    @Laura: Did we force the cameras in their face? If they want privacy, get off my TV, out of my magazines and off my websites. Basically, stop whoring out your children and get an actual job or skill.

  • Layoff

    Just stop already saying she is pimping out her children. They found a way to be able to spend as much time as possible with all 8 kids while still providing a good life for them. If they were off working constantly you would all be complaining about that as well. Lay off.

  • sharah

    I know one way to get the Paps off your doorstop and your limited friends doorstep. . .Stop filming your kids and getting paid for it!! It is a classic story Kate, you made a deal with the devil and yet you are surprised about the outcome. I for one am being completely entertained by your life, so the premise of the reality show is working. Now sit back Kate and enjoy the ride, or punch the clock the rest of America and get your friends back.

  • angel

    All I have to say is that they better not file for divorce. Imagine the damage to the kids when you try to explain to them that mommy and daddy will not be married for ever like they promised their kids they would be on that lavish trip to Hawaii.

  • Lillianne

    She IS pimping out her kids. She’s making money on them, using them and do you seriously believe she has the money put back for them? NO. It’s all in a house they can’t otherwise afford and will have to maintain once this show is off the air, which looks like it’s going to be sooner than later.

  • Heatherlynn


  • Weeeeeeee

    Lesson learned for all those who want to be reality show stars.

  • Cathey

    If truly the children are first priority. Then turn off the cameras and see to your family. PRIORITIES!!!!!!!!!

  • Hello jello

    i truly feel sorry for them…all of a sudden they are being harassed…they don’t deserve it!!!

  • zoe

    Well you know what kate get out!! if you can’t take it just cancel the show it’s killing your family. you said you have no friends left well maybe because you are so mean and full of yourself people are so sick of seeing you treat Jon like crap.

  • laurie

    Kate you can’t blame the paparazzi for having no friends…..

  • laurie

    Kate you can’t blame the paparazzi for having no friends…..

  • lol

    It’s all about the money nothing more she could care less about anyone else

  • omg

    This is why you should not do any kind of reality show. I do not want to judge them, but they have eight friggin kids!!!! These two parents need to grow up!

  • Caroline

    Kate, friendless? You booted all your former helpful neighbors, friends and family away.

    Beth Carlson was the REAL author of your first best seller. SHE IS NEVER MENTIONED.

    You’ve dumped all the people who helped you, just like you will all the people helping you now when you’re done with them, too.

  • Jaye

    Something is wrong with these people. I haven’t put my finger on it, but I think it’s probably going to come out in the next 6 months. I don’t understand why almost as soon as they got married, they started having children. What was the rush? Oh, yeah KATE wanted them. Married in June 1999, had twins in October 2000. Oh, and Kate wanted to have ANOTHER child, Jon didn’t, but guess who won THAT argument. Boom! Six more kids in 2004. If anyone think these people have had a sex life in recent years, I have a 100 carat diamond I’d like to sell you. Wouldn’t surprised me if Jon felt resentment at Kate and trapped by all those kids. He certainly lost whatever identity he had when they decided to do the Reality Show.

    Now they’re whining about the paparazzi. You’d think they’ve never heard of a Reality Show and what it does to peoples lives. I do think they thought they could rise above it. How? A relationship needs to be sustained, it doesn’t survive on it’s own. It’s hard enough to make a marriage work without the celebrity tag that they now have. They didn’t think about that. Do you think you could keep a marriage together if you had 8 kids with 6 being the same age, a Reality show, book signings, lectures and virtually NO time alone with your mate over an 8 year period? You’d be lucky to still remember each others’ name.

    I do tend to feel sorry for them despite errors in judgment. But they KNOW how they can get off this roller coaster. Stop doing the show. They are committed for the upcoming season. Let’s see if the money and fame outweighs the need to save their marriage and family. Kate can say all she wants that she doesn’t like the fame, but she could have just stuck with the Reality Show, now it seems every opportunity she has to get out of the house to sell something, lecture or appear on a talk show, she’s there.

    BTW the cameras are not in her house 24/7. They are only there 3 days a week for a few months while they tape the episodes.

  • get out

    wow I just read that the US weekly cover sold 1 million copies. I don’t think this will be ending any time soon. shoulda got out a year ago.

  • Tarah

    Part of me feels bad for this family but another part of me just thinks that they brought this on themselves. They have gone on with this show too long. They are addicted to the “royalities” that are provided to them now so much that they cannot walk away from it. It’s like one of us winining the lottery and then just deciding that “No, it’s okay, I don’t want it anymore, I’ll just go back to work, thanks anyway”. They are in over their heads and they have lost touch with reality IMO. IIn the beginning, thei show was realistic. It was about a family’s financial and physical struggles with raising that many kids on a modest income. It was relatable to people and a lot of people found it interesting. Now, the show has lost that. It’s not about their struggles, it’s about them going on trips and buying houses etc. While I am happy that they have been able to better their live financially, they are making a huge sacrifice that I think will not be worth the $$ in the end. The show has become bigger than themselves and that is never a good thing. I hope they have the sense to just get out ASAP!

  • lakers fan in boston

    im honestly surprised that any1 would want this bitchy woman
    u must be a weird guy 2 like being bitched at

    all these rumors r consequences for wanting to have a show so deal with it, it’s obvious u like the fame

  • Sun shine

    WHO THE F#CK CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY CAN DEAL WITH IT

  • VICTORIA # 1

    I agree with ” SHARAH “. If Kate really wants to protect the last few friends she has, then end the show. It has become a little boring anyway, and Kate is a little self-absorbed. Her attitude towards her husband is shameful and it puts her in a bad light. Their daughters can only pick up this bad behavior and use it towards any future boyfriends or husbands. Not exactly a role model, Kate, in THAT department.
    If YOUR rumors are false, then I feel sorry for the security/bodyguard invovled. Tabloids can be harsh and unforgiving.
    Kate is not my favorite person, but I don’t wish her any ill will.
    Get out of the business, Kate, and save your marriage and what friends and family you have left. You are NOT a celebrity or an actress.

  • g!na

    I heard the producers are going to find a way to put the aleged affair in the show! WTF! Kate loves the cameras & the money !!!!!!!!!!

  • dawne

    This control freak of a woman has many issues. Firstly, her husband hates the show and she wants it to continue; I doubt he wins any round with her, She has forgotten she had a marriage before this slew of kids, and its time she prioritzed that instead of writing books and running around like some starlet p*mping a B movie.

    When I watch the other large family show about the ten kids, I get a real warm and fuzzy about these people…….they are the real deal.

    Kate is cold as a fish and treats everyone like she is the ultimate everything. She really needs to get over herself in a big way. Stop the books and interviews, they no longer need the $$$, rediscover the real meaning of family other than total organization and pefectly coifed kids.

    This woman does not know how to just kick back and be simple………her whole life is one big show. Check out the competing show same channel and see and feel the tremendous difference.

    And by the way, Kate, Angelina has been trashed three thousand times fold for five years and has not said a word. If you want to play in the big fame and money leagues, toughen up and accept the downside like every other celebrity. This is what you created, quit whining.

  • nope

    well, it sound to me like the man needs to grow a pair of balls and stop acting like a child. No strong adult MAN lets anybody control them. She can’t force his sissy ass to be on a show if he doesn’t really want it. I think they both play into the “roles” fof the camera, her as the control freak and him as the little sissy husband acting like he’s still a teen.

  • Linda

    I think it’s all about publicity for her book and the show. Same as Leann Rhymes story before that movie (highest rating movie of Lifetime channel).

    Their show has stalled: they are just doing this and that project s on and on and on. So scripted now. and has been for a while. I don’t want to watch it anymore.

    Timing is everything.

  • cosi

    Jon needs to grow a pair and show this harpie who’s the man. Cannot fathom that she’s now complaining about the very thing she brought onto herself and her family by agreeing to become a cog in the reality circus machine!

  • LEavethemalone

    Leave them alone. The show is a great way for them to support this large family, and spend time with their kids. Think about it, with 8 kids, even if they were both working, daycare would cost a ton of money, not to mention saving for college for 8 kids. People just need to back off and stop hating them. Like any other show on TV, if you don’t like it, change the channel. Don’t be so hateful. You try having 8 kids to feed and save for.

  • Bella

    I have to agree with Linda. I wonder how much of these rumors are planted to boost ratings for the upcoming season. Everyone is getting pretty tired of watching an OCD shrew, a man with no balls, and children who are now old enough to know how to behave, but don’t. No friends? Please! Kate doesn’t even allow family to get close to their family. Even Aunt Jodi (who was truly a role model for mothers of multiples) got the axe. What better way to ensure the free luxuries will keep coming to fund resort trips and a mult-million dollar estate than to boost ratings with allegations of affairs? If they are truly sincere about wanting it to stop it’s as easy as saying “no more”. The sad part of this is that for years they have been allowed to exploit these children who will NEVER know what it is like growing up with privacy.

  • Freakyfreak

    OH COME ON KATE HAVING AN AFFAIR…WITH WHO? “Faster, faster. Not there – there. You’re doing it wrong! Here…RIGHT HERE! Go, go, faster, faster. Yeah, yeah, there it is. OOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I’m done – now get off me a**hole and go feed the kids and clean the house and fix your comb over.”

    I mean really – no wonder they had “clinical” sex. It’s the only kind she couldn’t bitch-bite. An affair? Talk about UN-REALITY TV!! She’s ten foot pole material.
