    Jon & Kate star Jon Gosselin's reported mistress said that she's not having an affair with the father of eight.

    Reality star Jon Gosselin's alleged "other woman" said Tuesday that she and the family man are just friends, denying reports that Gosselin is stepping out on wife Kate -- and his eight kids.

    "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" dad Gosselin was spotted at a bar last week with Deanna Hummel, 23, who told People that she and Gosselin are just buddies who kept their relationship strictly PG-rated.

    "We're just friends," said Hummel, who was caught on-camera driving Gosselin's car. "It's absurd that anyone would think otherwise."

    The cozy car time was misinterpreted by the media, said Hummel, who claimed she and the TLC star simply hang in the same circle of friends.

    "He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I'm into cars," she said. "We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way."

    Reports of Gosselin's infidelity are "unfair to him and his family," Hummel said. 

    "He's a very nice guy, don't get me wrong. But he's married with eight children," she said. 

    Gosselin released a statement last week saying getting caught with Hummel showed "poor judgment" and that his family is "the most important thing in his life." 

    He and wife Kate have sextuplets and a set of twins, who all star on their TLC show.
