Jon Gosselin has previously stated he wants to "continue on television" -- however it apparently won't be in a new reality series with "octomom" Nadya Suleman.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 star's manager has denied a recent report that Gosselin and Suleman are working on a new reality series that would follow their attempts at a romantic relationship, E! News reported Wednesday.

"This is the first I've even heard of it," the manager told E! News. "This isn't happening."

Earlier this month, Suleman stated that she's attracted to Gosselin.

"I kind of have a crush on Jon Gosselin," she told RadarOnline in an October 19 report. "I think he's hot!"

Gosselin seemed to at least be intrigued by Suleman's affection for him the next day when he was told by a photographer that she thought he was "hot," but he quickly put the kibosh on any dating plans.

"No way!" Gosselin told RadarOnline.  "I want to get through this divorce and focus on my kids... its kind of weird though."

Former Cheaters producer Bobby Goldstein then told In Touch Weekly in a Wednesday report that he was developing a pilot titled Jon - Kate = Jon + Octomom that would document Suleman's romantic advances at Gosselin.

"I heard that Nadya has an insatiable desire to spend time with Jon and to put their families together," Goldstein told In Touch. "And I had the idea that this could be a very entertaining fiasco."

According to a press release about the project obtained by In Touch, Gosselin only "contemplates what hooking up with Octomom could really be like" while "she's already talking openly about the two of them getting married."

"It's so bad that when they finally meet, Octomom's brood may start calling Jon 'Daddy.' If this doesn't make Jon lose it, then Octomom modeling her bikini body for him will," the press release stated, In Touch reported.

"He's totally creeped out by the idea that if they got married, they'd have 22 kids."

While Gosselin's manager has denied a pilot is in the works, E! News reported that a representative for the project claims there are emails to prove that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was at one point interested in it.

The emails reportedly discuss Gosselin's potential profits, a possible filming location, and even a role for his girlfriend Hailey Glassman.

"We've been developing this show for months. We've just been talking to the people the last few days. We were tipped off by Octomom's ex-publicist that she had an obsession with Jon and that's when we started developing the show," the project's representative told E! News.

"After someone brings it to the media, it just freaks people out, but we're not BS-ing. This is going to end up on a network. We're talking to all four of them... Fox, ABC, NBC and CBS."

In addition, the representative added the project would start as a one-time special with series potential.

"We're even talking about scheduling it around the Superbowl," the project's representative told E! News.  "We think it could be that big. We think it could be American Idol-type [big]."
