Although I am fairly tired of the entire Jon & Kate media parade, one thing I am not tired of is Kate Major. Oh, I don't have much use for her as a celebrity, but she is one of the biggest topics of conversation simply because everyone is curious to how far someone can take a weekend with Jon Gosselin. Kate Major was the Star Magazine reporter who managed to turn an interview with Jon Gosselin into a photo opportunity for herself, some headlines and some kind of freaky sex weekend in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan, his girlfriend, Jon and one of the Real Housewives.
Last night she was on E! and gave a really long interview and despite her protestations to the contrary you could tell she was loving the attention. The question is whether last night was the peak of her fame? Can she take it any further? She is not stupid and having been a tabloid reporter she knows some tricks. I know she was counting on Jon being more into her than Hailey Glassman, but that didn't happen.
To me, Kate is the epitome of someone becoming famous for absolutely nothing. She went to dinner with him in New York and got her face plastered all over the internet and tabloids. Can you make 15 minutes out of that? Can you make more than 15 minutes out of it? She has been the topic of conversation because the game is what move should she play next to keep the fame clock ticking? Does she go the Playboy route? Does she keep doing interviews? Does she try and get Jon back? Doe she have sex in public with Michael Lohan? One thing that is interesting is that she says she has proof that she and Jon were romantic. I don't know if that means Michael filmed them together or if there are just a couple of love notes, but maybe the proof will buy her some more time.
At this point she may be in a box and out of options, but it is fun to watch her try and cling to the 15 minutes.
