Speaking on “The Ralphie Radio Show” in her first media interview, Ellen Ross classified her relationship with boyfriend Jon Gosselin as “very serious”, and confirmed she’s the first of his post-marriage girlfriends to meet all of his children.

“He’s met everyone close to me, my friends and family,” Ross revealed, adding that the father of eight has been well received. “I told them ‘He’s just a regular guy and he treats me great and you’ll see that when you meet him.’”

Gosselin and Ross met at a mutual friend’s barbeque party in the Harrisburg, PA area. The couple has been together for three months, and there was an acclimation period to the attention received from fans, foes, and the paparazzi.

“It was kind of weird at first,” Ross admitted of the constant presence of photographers. “But I just try to ignore them and act like they’re not there.”

The rumors are certainly there – just Google News search “Jon Gosselin.” Radar Online reports that it was Ross that suggested and pushed Gosselin to obtain a tattoo of a dragon which spans most of his back. But his girlfriend denied that claim on “The RRS.”

“The tattoo artist is my very good friend, he’s done work on me before,” said Ross, who claimed Radar took the quotes out of context. “When Jon said he wanted to get a tattoo, I said, ‘I have a good idea of who you should go to.’”

Ross approves of the tattoo and was impressed with the detail, however she doesn’t see herself getting a matching one in the near future.

Gym Class Heroes front man Travie McCoy is a little salty that a rough mix of a demo track featuring Ke$ha found its way on to the Internet. He knows someone on the West Coast is responsible, although is unaware of who leaked it. Regardless, he’s upbeat, with a more positive outlook on the bigger picture.

“Luckily enough, none of the stuff on the album has been leaked, and hopefully it won’t before the album drops,” revealed McCoy, speaking on his tour bus to “The Ralphie Radio Show.” His solo debut, Lazarus, comes out June 8. The first single, “Billionaire” features triple-threat Bruno Mars – who sings, writes, and produces. Mars gained notoriety recently for his chops on the hook of B.o.B’s smash hit, “Nothin’ On You.”

“I hooked up with his production team… just the tracks they were coming up with; I was like, ‘Whoa… we definitely need to get together on this record,’” McCoy said of collaborating with Mars and The Smeezingtons – a production team also comprised of Phillip Lawrence and Ari Levine. The meeting occurred about a year and a half ago. “We were in the studio, and he played me ‘Billionaire’… it was just the track and him on the hook – and I was just like, ‘Wow, alright, we’re in a recession right now, how can I come out with this song talking about wanting to be a billionaire?’”

McCoy answered his own question by flipping the scenario and becoming selfless, instead of selfish. While he rhymes about spending money on the ones he loves and good causes – McCoy raps that he would have his own theme music wherever he walked. So, what would it be?

“Probably the theme song from Super Fly,” joked McCoy. “You know what I mean? I’d have a band behind me, as I walk everywhere.”

Speaking of bands – the one currently behind him isn’t going anywhere. McCoy reiterated that the Gym Class Heroes are not breaking up. The group is currently 12 demos in to a new LP, due out next year, titled PCC II. The GCH emcee alluded to the album being a sequel to the 2005 release The Papercut Chronicles. Gym Class drummer Matt McGinley is currently touring with McCoy.
