Sources close to Jon Gosselin’s new “Buss It Baby” Kate Major claim the former tabloid reporter is using the star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 to achieve the fame that she’s’ always dreamed of.
Major, who is reportedly dating the soon-to-be divorced father of eight, resigned from her position as a senior reporter at Star Magazine on Thursday, citing a conflict of interest between her duties as a gossipmonger and her budding romance with Jon.
It’s all a part of the crafty 26-year-old blonde’s elaborate scheme to “Get Rich Quick,” friends of “The Other Kate” tell The NY Daily News’ Gatecrasher Column.
“Kate always wanted to be a celebrity. Now she’s getting her 15 minutes.”
Adds a publicist pal, “Kate has always wanted to be on TV. She was a talking head at Star, and told me she wanted to work as ["Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member] Kim Zolciak’s personal assistant. It didn’t matter how she got there â€” she just wanted to be in the spotlight.”
