Self-Proclaimed Ex: Jon on "Bachelor Romp"

A month ago, Kate Major was the Star magazine reporter assigned to interview reality TV star Jon Gosselin, of the TLC show "Jon & Kate Plus 8." But suddenly, the 26-year-old found herself being part of her own story when, she says, she fell for him.

Major says she had a steamy, 12-day affair with Jon. On "The Early Show" Friday, she said she quit her job to pursue a personal assistant role and relationship with Jon that he offered.

Major said when Jon remarked publicly that he couldn't be with anyone, she thought he was breaking off the relationship for the show and his kids. But, Major said, she didn't bargain on Jon going back to his 22-year-old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman.

Gosselin has denied having had an affair with Major, and Glassman has said she believes Jon, and thinks Major is "cuckoo, cuckoo.".

Major responded to her statements on "The Early Show", saying, "I feel badly for (Glassman) that she doesn't know the truth, and that Jon hasn't told her the truth. ... Any guy that cheats says that the other woman is 'cuckoo' or crazy... I have nothing bad to say about her. This isn't about Hailey and I, this is about Jon and I."

Is the ex-Star reporter still in love with Jon?

"No," Major replied. "I don't have a lot of respect for him. I think he handled the situation very poorly. He did not act like an adult or a grown man or a father. And it's just sad. I think the fame has just gone to his head and he's on some bachelor romp."

She added, "You cannot treat people (that way). It's not fair to me, it's not fair to Hailey, it's not fair to his ex-wife, his kids or anyone else involved in the situation."
