(Newser) – Soon-to-be-ex-hubby Jon has been acting so strange that Kate Gosselin feels there's only one way to explain his behavior: He was abducted by aliens. In a People interview, Kate says she still hopes Jon will snap back to his old self one day and phone her to say, "OK, that was really weird; aliens overtook me, but now I'm back," the Examiner reports.

The reality TV star also worries it's too early for her kids to meet "the other woman"—Jon's new girlfriend—and says she doesn't want to hire a bodyguard to replace Steve, who is like a big brother to her. As for what was behind the police-involved fight Kate and Jon recently had? "I should not be sitting a mile from my house while my kids are with some girl, who, by the way, brings her own child with her. I'm sorry, your child and eight of mine? No way."
