Star Shamelessly Hyping Its Reporter's Fling with Jon Gosselin

Today's shameless press release of the day: Star Magazine issued a statement tonight merrily touting the fact that one of their reporters, Kate Major, is getting boned by douche-y octodad Jon Gosselin. Yeah.

Here's the text of an email we received tonight from a Star Magazine flack:

Breaking News! Star Reporter Dating Jon Gosselin

It's a stunning turn of events that even Star couldn't see coming, father-of-eight Jon Gosselin and one of our reporters have fallen for each other.

Kate Major confirmed tonight that she and the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad are an item, five days after they were first photographed together.

"I didn't mean it to happen, it just did," Kate, 26, says. "I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him."

The release included a link to a post on the Star website with a request for us to link back to their story if we happened to post anything on the subject, a request we're more than happy to oblige. Here you go Star:
