Jon Gosselin’s fifteen minutes of fame doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. In his recent interview on ABC’s special Primetime: Family secrets, the father of eight, says estranged wife Kate, would only agree to therapy with Dr. Phil.
“I was very hesitant,” Jon says. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’”
According to Jon, the session with Dr. Phil was more about fixing the image of their hit TLC show rather than their broken marriage.
“We talked about the brand and corporate things and making the brand work,” he says. “I felt it was weird. I was like, ‘Why am I here? I could be snowboarding.’ It wasn’t helping.”
Dr. Phil released a statement to ABC News saying, “I respect the Gosselins’ privacy, I have no comment on their marriage.”
Is this really going to be your last season on The Hills? Why?
You know, it’s just something that I felt inside. I’m an adult now, and I don’t need all the petty drama and drinking and fighting. I’ve done that, and I’m ready to move on.
Can you spill anything about The Audrina Show?
The producer is Mark Burnett, who executive-produced Survivor. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at my life in L.A.—the movies and shoots and parties. It’s not as glamorous as it appears, plus it’ll actually feature people I know. It’s, like, real.
Maksim, 29, posted on his Twitter Monday: “What was meant to be a ‘life long book’, turned into a ‘chapter’…….and now that ‘chapter’ is finished…… Se la vie…” The twitter status has been deleted as of Tuesday.
The professional dancing duo got engaged on New Year’s Eve 2008 — just six months after Karina, 31, split from Mario Lopez. They had planned on getting married in June 2010, but prolonged their engagement in July because of their busy Broadway schedules.
They will both be returning to DWTS when the new season returns to ABC Sept. 21. Maksim is paired with Entourage star Debi Mazar, and Karina with Aaron Carter.
This split seems rather sudden considering the couple was photographed holding hands a little over a week ago, on August 30th. The photo is below -
In more of his interview with ABC News, Jon continues to trash Kate, claiming she took his wedding ring, may have had an affair with her bodyguard, and saying he despises her.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad accuses Kate, 34, of “feeding into the frenzy” by appearing on magazine covers bashing him. “I despise [her] because she’s not speaking from the heart,” Jon tells ABC News. “Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”
Jon also slams Kate for claiming she still wears her wedding ring because she doesn’t want to “upset” their eight children. Says Jon, “I think she still wears the ring for public perception. I don’t wear my ring because she took my ring. I don’t have it. ” He continues. “I laid it down one night. It was gone. Who else would take it? I checked all the — underneath my kids’ pillows. That’s where everything ends up in the house anyway. So it wasn’t there.”
Jon goes on to speculate that Kate might have had an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild. “I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel. You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous,” he said. “Here, I’m Mr. Mom. And then there’s some other guy traveling with my wife. Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.” Kate has always denied the affair rumors.
In a statement to ABC News, Kate attempts to take the high road saying: “While I certainly have a very different perception of how our marriage dissolved, for the sake of my children I maintain that I’m not going to go into details of aspects I believe should remain private.”

We now have the photos of Lisa’s line, and let’s just say some of her pieces should have remained in the closet. The above photo is pretty much as “good” as it gets.
When asked to describe her clothing line, Lisa says, “I wanted very classical, elegant pieces, but still a little flirtatious. I think these days a lot of women overexpose themselves to get attention.” The good news is wearing Closet Freakwill definitely get you some attention, though likely not the type of attention you were looking for.
This clothing line is in addition to Lisa’s many businesses – which include a jewelry line, real estate company, children’s clothing line, and any other business she decides to come up with while this post is being written. A reader once asked a good question, saying – “Lisa has a lot of businesses, but do any of them make her any money?” Interesting question indeed.
Photos of Lisa’s Closet Freak line is below. The 18-piece collection includes skirts, tops, jumpsuits and dresses.

Jeff Schroeder is speaking out on his recent departure from Big Brother 11 in a new interview with People. The 30 year old advertising salesman from Chicago, who also happens to be one of the dreamiest most liked houseguests in Big Brother history, answers the questions BB fans have been wondering about, such as why did he put his trust in Natalie and Kevin?
Jeff also talks about his future with houseguest Jordan. Excerpts from his interview are below -
What happened to the kiss you promised to give Jordan?
There were a lot of emotions running through my head. Jordan was the first person that I grabbed and if she would have come with me to the door, I definitely would have [kissed her]. I didn’t leave the way that I wanted to. I wish I would have kissed Jordan and I wish I would have said more encouraging words to both Jordan and Michele.
Do you think you made the wrong choice by going after Russell and siding with Kevin and Natalie?
Everyone is confused about me “switching” sides from Russell to Kevin. There were no sides. It was me and Jordan in the end. I wanted to split Michele and Russell up because there was something cooking between them two, and I wanted to get the strongest player that was left in the house. I wouldn’t change anything that I did. I made the decisions and I put it all on my shoulders but if I had won the POV, I personally think that I would have won the game.
America gave you the coup d’etat, which you used to flip the game on its head. How shocked were you when they revealed it to you?
It was actually overwhelming and I don’t think I did a good enough job in thanking America for that because I was actually speechless. I was wishing for something the entire game and I felt like my back was to the wall and this was a gift from above. It was the best feeling in the world to know hat someone outside the game was on my side.
Who do you think has played the best game so far?
Hats off to Michele. She comes through in the clutch, she has big wins and proves herself time and time again. To this day I cannot figure her out, which is probably a really good quality to have in this game. The difference between Michele and Kevin is Michele bends the truth and Kevin is a straight out someone that cannot be trusted.
Is there a future for you and Jordan outside the BB house?
It’s hard to have a relationship on that show, in that house. I definitely want to maintain a close friendship with Jordan outside of the house and if something evolves from there, great. If it doesn’t, I don’t want to jeopardize the friendship that we have.
Who is going on your Hawaiian vacation with you?
Hawaii is still a question mark for me. Let’s just say that Jordan is on a very short list.
