(Newser) – The Octomom TV special was shocking even to the Octomom herself, Nadya Suleman’s lawyer tells Radar. Suleman “was shocked to see some of the chaos of the scenes in the show, but she understands the show has its own production agenda.” Elsewhere:

  • Mark Lester was on Today this morning, speaking vaguely about his maybe-maybe-not status as the biological father of Michael Jackson’s children. “It’s just something that happened. It’s a possibility that one or all—very unlikely all, but—one of those kids may be mine.”

  • Guess who else is still talking? That’s right, former tabloid reporter Kate Major, who broke down in tears during an Inside Edition interview, Radar reports. She called ex-fling Jon Gosselin a liar and denied Hailey Glassman’s claim that she is “cuckoo.”
  • Also from Radar: Despite denials of earlier rumors, Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler do appear to be dating. “We saw him give her a little kiss” between takes on the Bounty set, a source says. “They were very lovey-dovey.”
  • Another new couple: Cameron Diaz and Keanu Reeves, who were recently spotted on a date, the Sun reports.
