Kate must be green with envy! I'm sure she has a trick or two up her sleeve to take the light off him.

Shi said...

Uh. This is... unexpected and weird. At least the kids won't be on it.

If he needs the money to support himself and the kids... and I guess get therapy for himself and his girlfriend... well, okay.

I hope it works out for them.

I'm annoyed with this. Jon, you've lost w/ me, esp. after I've felt like supporting you. Tired of TV/the spotlight?, but now this?
Was the recent interview w/ Oprah then just a planned lead in to a revival of Jon Gosselin interest/promo for this new show? My bad for being so utterly naiive. Ugh, fickle & fame strikes again.
And the kids are most definitely involved with this in my eyes as kids at school & people in general will know about and watch their dad on a public platform discussing relationship issues/problems with his girlfriend...why keep dragging the kids through all this embarrassment, humiliation and nonsense?

Had Enough said...

No one should be annoyed with Jon. It's his life, and whatever he wants to do with it, is his business. He obviously had his own reasons for doing it. At least he's not exploiting his 8 children, like Kate continues to do.

kate hasnt been on twitter in 4 days! lol she must be humiliated over everything. the bad book reviews the developmental delay comments the Robert hoffman posting old stuff and new stuff on his blog must be driving her complete bonkers and the icing on the cake is now jon is going to be on a reality show. LOL ... thats pretty amazing if you ask me

What about the debt he has to his attorneys? I would bet that until this is finished, he'll be shelling out more than a hundred grand for all of this. Wonder where that's coming from. Seems Jon was perfectly happy in his cabin, working two jobs, out of the limelight. I doubt if waiters' tips would cover his staggering legal debts. Kate brought on all of this with the lawsuit. Someone has to pay his attorneys, court costs, filings, briefs, time for depositions...hours and hours of work. I doubt if an attorney is going to absorb all of these costs out of the goodness of his heart.

sglily said...

It is true that Jon can do whatever he wants with his own life, and we've seen part of that has been him making darn sure everybody gets the picture that he's fed up with public persona, fame, TV & media...now all of a sudden he's the one (back) on TV.
I wonder if his "own" reasons for doing this show took into consideration the possibility, or shall I say probability, of embarrassing and/or humiliating his teenage daughters (as well as the other 6), which may contribute to chipping away at their emotional health. To me, that is still exploiting the kids, albeit indirectly. If I was 13 in 7th grade, I cannot imagine my friend's parents and friends tuning in to see what issues my dad is dealing with & how it's affecting his relationship with his girlfriend. God help them if sex becomes a topic of discussion.

Kate goes on twitter silence when she's away. In this case, she's not been tweeting because she's in California filming a three-day stunt on the Hallmark Channel home show. She obviously isn't sitting at home sulking because she has her face out there on national television again. She won't go away.

hannah said...

I think he does need to money for his lawyers. I hope if he has any left it goes into funds for his kids that only they(NOT KATE) can use.

zoey said...

what is she doing for the hallmark channel?

Ohio Buckeye said...

Disappointing. Unwise. This decision does nothing to maintain much less build his credibility. still, compared to Kate, the Queen of Narcissism, Jon Gosselin's behavior pales by comparison.,

Lynne said...

I hope John gets his own show after couples therapy.. God knows Kate has done nothing but put him down, drag him by his feet, embarrass the hell out of him. I pray every day that John will somehow make more money than that poor excuse of a human..ok well not EVERY day..actually once maybe twice.

Jon has a right to make money and is not pimping out his kids. Jon comes across as very honest. I think "what you see is what you get "

Tori said...

It's not surprising that Jon is going to be on a TV show. After all, he went along with the reality show for years, even though he apparently grew tired of it.

Jon and Kate are not that different; both of them are willing to do anything to further their bottom line, even if it means it might humiliate their children, either now or later in their lives.

We've seen Kate act terribly in the past, but let's remember that Jon is no angel either.

Barbara M. said...

If Jon is doing this show because he needs to pay his lawyer's bills, then why doesn't he say so, instead of "my girlfriend and I need therapy and it's free"? I have a sinking feeling that Jon isn't as happy with his simple life as he claims to be and, like his ex, misses the limelight and easy money of reality TV.

Sharla said...

Jon is supposed to be on Wendy Williams tomorrow (Tuesday).

jennine s said...

Jon was on Wendy Williams show today. Jon came across as a very caring parent with lots of legal bills thanks to his ex wife. He said he has only had 2 girlfriends in front of the children. I guess that is another Kate lie. He said he thinks there is a lot of bribing going on at Kate's house.

Liz said...

The kids' recollection about girlfriends could be very clouded. I can imagine, at the the time Jon was out at bars (after Kate kicked him out of THEIR home and told him it was over) that Kate relayed information to the girls about Jon's activities. Just because that's what they remember doesn't mean Jon was bringing girl after girl home to meet his kids.

I don't believe anything that comes from Kamp Kate. Her 15 minutes are long gone, and thrusting the girls to the front page of People: classless.

Gosselins At War: Jon Says Kids Are ‘Isolated’ & ‘Clingy’ And Kate’s Rules Are Too Strict

Kate Gosselin’s ex-husband Jon famously had his kids yanked off television because he feared their over-exposure.

Now, in a new interview, the father-of-eight is SLAMMING his ex for keeping the brood trapped on her secluded Pennsylvania compound!

“They live in such an isolated house,” the television dad told In Touch of the home he used to live in. “When they’re with me, I let them out into society. I don’t close the gate and make them live in a compound like Kate does.”

As Radar has previously reported, Jon rents a cabin on a private road in rural Pennsylvania — a location where he fired a shot at a paparazzo whom he claimed was on the property in 2013.

Today, he’s back on the box with a stint on VH1′s Couples Therapy, where he’s slammed Kate’s over-bearing method of parenting, declaring: “You can’t breathe the wrong way without upsetting her!”

He said, “The kids have to ask before they get a drink, before they get a snack, before they open the fridge, before they go to the bathroom. It’s ridiculous.”

He also slammed his children’s social skills.

Charged Jon: “They have problems adjusting with their peers. They are well-mannered, and that is great, but when we go into an environment with other children, they cling to me.”

Jon revealed that he sees the kids one day per week, plus every other weekend.

“I’m trying to teach them respect and love for other people. That’s the big thing… humanity,” he said. “They need to look inside other peoples’ hearts. By isolating them, they’ll never learn.”

HOW DOES SHE ALWAYS GET ON THE TODAY SHOW?

Kate Gosselin ✔@Kateplusmy8

Cara & Mady are SO honored to be on @TODAYshow tomorrow morning, talking all stuff 'teenager' (while I'm thinking stop growing up SO fast!)
Expand

jennine s said...

the twins were on the Today show this morning, and were tongue tied. Kate looked furious. It is obvious that Kate prodded them to go on the show. they would'nt
t even admit that they wanted to be on the show.

Heffner Road from Florida said...

Did anyone watch the today show this morning? well the kids did not speak (the smaller one did say a few words at the end of the interview)

Kate spoke said really nothing

I' m ready, Mr. DeMille said...

I did not see the Today show with the twins today but from the reports of those who did see the interview...doesn't this re-affirm what Jon said about the kids being somewhat uncomfortable in social situations? It will be interesting to hear Kate putting her spin on their "performance"

JenTru said...

Wow, the Today show interview sure was telling. Kate glaring at Mady when she wouldn't talk and reminding her to say what she said in the (People) magazine. Keep saying how regular they are Kate...maybe it will come true.

Elvira said...

Be careful what you wish for Kate - the twins refused to tell her BS.

jennine s said...

The twins were petrified of Kate. They refused to throw their father under the bus. I'll bet they will be grounded the rest of the weekend.

I' m ready, Mr. DeMille said...

After I wrote my previous post, I viewed the interview on 2 different sources and,,OMG! I feel sorry for the twins and what they will be going through now. Kate was not pleased on the kid's performances. Her fake smile was not a happy face. The twins were shy being before cameras? Yeh right! They have been subjected to cameras in their personal space since tehy were 4 years old. They just have more moral values in spite of her. Poor Cara froze and Maddy was over thinking the situation and questions.

Interesting that Maddy says that people were not wrong, they just didn't get the whole story. Now that should have been an opportunity for a follw-up question, but then again, it wasn't in the script provided by Kate.

Tori said...

I watched some of the interview with Jon and his girlfriend, and I was appalled.

His girlfriend looked like she just gotten out of bed, and was dressed for a trip to the supermarket rather than a television interview. The term "white trash" came to mind when I saw her and then listened to her talk.

She was tacky enough to bring up the topic of walking into a room where Jon looked like he was m........ing. Gross. She and Jon came across as sleazy.

I immediately thought of the Gosselin kids reading about this or seeing it online. It will be humiliating for them. I feel terribly sorry for those kids.

Jon is incredibly naive when you consider how he came across in this interview - like an idiotic fool.

jennine s said...

Jon on E news tonight was unleashed ! He was very honest.
