As rumors are circulating that Jon Gosselin, father of 8 from Jon & Kate Plus 8 is engaged to 22-year old party girl Hayley Glassman, another person has come out of the woodwork to publicly announce that she has been dating the recently seperated 32-year old father.

Last week Jon Gosselin, and Star Magazine reported Kate Major were filmed together leaving a New York restaurant. Since the reality star seems to complain about the publicity, while also encouraging it on himself withan openness to the press; it could be easily assumed that he was there to collaborate on an interview with. She claims that that’s how it all started, but then mentioned that she fell for Jon and they began dating from there. As they’re being snapped dining in East Hampton, and dining with Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael – it is very possible that the two are in fact dating. One thing for sure is the father of 8 is wasting no time playing the field, and he sure seems to have a thing for younger blonds.

The team endures a harrowing journey through time via several anomalies, encountering predators, raptors, and a life-changing meeting with Hominids along the way.

After much speculation, it’s finally been confirmed that Katie Holmes will be performing on tonight’s 100th episode of So You Think You Can Dance. Rumor has it, in her performance, she will be paying homage to Judy Garland, singing and dancing to “Get Happy” from the 1950’s musical Summer Stock.

According to reports, Katie Holmes will be dressed in full Judy Garland garb with a black velvet fedora, leather heels and some revealing and sexy clothing options (as seen on the preview for the 100th episode of the show). Apparently, she will be accompanied by 8 male dances, who will close out the performance by lifting her in the air, at which point she will sensually toss her fedora out over the audience.

It’s been reported that choreographer Tyce Diorio was responsible for developing the number, and that rehearsals took place on Monday, July 13th before the actress took off to Australia to begin filming her new movie.

Tune into So You Think You Can Dance later on tonight and see what else the show’s 100th episode will have in store!
