Jon told People he's "just friends" with tabloid reporter Kate Major, who joined him in the Hamptons over the last several days.
Of his trip away from home – and his eight kids — Jon said it was par for the course.
"If [Kate's] got to work, I go home. If I've got to work, she stays home. And that's the way it's always been," he said. "Kate and I are just showing how we are going to live."
