So, last week I posted about how Jon Gosselin was photographed with another woman who was driving his car and whom he called, "Babe." Well, the other woman has a name and it is Deanna Hummel. She is 23 years old and told People Magazine that everything was completely innocent. "We're just friends. It's absurd that anyone would think otherwise."
Well, I don't think it is absurd that people would think otherwise. I don't think we should assume otherwise, but I think it is perfectly plausible that if the photographer had not been there that something more innocent than driving his car may have occurred.
About that car thing?
"He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I'm into cars. We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way, and it's unfair to him and his family."
Uh huh. She also says Jon never called her babe and that no one calls her babe.
OK. Well let us assume her story is entirely true. She has no reason to lie or anything. Oh, well sure, money. Oh, and if she thinks Jon would leave Kate for her. Anyway, Jon released a statement after this happened last week saying he had "shown poor judgment."
Why was it poor judgment? If the two of you are just friends than it really shouldn't matter if you were riding in a car together or that you gave a really weird reason for that car ride. Just because your married with children (Have you ever noticed the title sequence in Married With Children has a scene from Vacation?) doesn't mean you have to stop riding in cars with other people. That is why I think there is more to this than either person is saying.
Think about it. If everything were completely innocent would you tell the world I used poor judgment? What is your significant other going to say when you say something like that? Was he referring to going out? Why can't he go out? They have nannies.
