TLC issued a firm denial to a published report alleging that Jon Gosselin’s girlfriend, Deanne Hummel, will appear in future episodes of Jon & Kate Plus Eight. “There are no plans to use her,” says a network spokeswoman. “We are in hiatus and all future episodes haven’t even been planned.” Monday’s episode of the show, in which the Gosselins announced their plans to divorce, attracted a record 10.6 million viewers.
