'Jon & Kate Plus 8's' mystery woman speaks up

Jongosselin_jonandkateplus8_290 Jon Gosselin's lady friend who set tongues a-wagging last week when her picture was snapped with the "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star outside a Pennsylvania club late at night wants to set the record straight: There's no cheating going on.

"We're just friends," says Deanna Hummel, 23, she tells People. "It's absurd that anyone would think otherwise. "We just talk and socialize, the normal things you do when you see friends"

In the interview, she explains how she wanted to drive his new car, which is when photographers snapped them together, how they did party at the Legends Bar in Reading, Pa., and how she was outraged that anyone would think she'd pursue a married man who has eight children.

There you have it. Both parties have spoken and claim everything was innocent (if unwise).

Can we lay this to rest already? Or do we need to talk to Kate Gosselin as well?
