Here we go again.

Kate Gosselin

is fighting mad about rumors that she is having an inappropriate relationship with a bodyguard who travels with her and her family.

The '"Jon Kate Plus Eight" mom tells People magazine that "the next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family. Already the allegations they're making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified."

The Gosselin family, whose lives are chronicled in a popular TLC reality show, have been embroiled in drama that last few months as stories about husband


's alleged dalliance with a 23-year-old school teacher have surfaced. Now it's Kate's turn in the rumor mill.

"These are people who absolutely love us and want to see us through to the end," she tells People of bodyguard Steve Neild and his family.

"Of course, both of them travel with us at times, and we've spent holidays together, because, in this situation, your circle grows smaller and smaller, and it's very natural to become friends with your manager, your publicist, your security team ... they're the only people you have left. And now they're coming under fire."

And you thought this show was going to be about the eight cute kids.
