From purchasing a beautiful million dollar home and yachting in the South of France to working as a waiter and living in a modest cabin (without Internet or TV) in the woods… welcome to the real world, Jon Gosselin.
So nice to have you!
That's right! Years after starring in a wildly popular TV show and enduring a nasty divorce, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is now serving food and drinks at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, PA.
You know how you totally forget some people even exist until they thrust themselves back into the news? Yeah, that's how I feel about Jon and Kate Gosselin. The reality stars with their brood of children are now more famous for their acrimonious divorce than their TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8.
While Kate has traded her role as America's Sweetheart (I couldn't even type that with a straight face) for that of couponing queen, I do kind of miss Jon's Ed Harvey antics when he was palling around with Michael Lohan. Thanks to a new lawsuit, we may be seeing more of the dreadful duo!
Rumor has it that the legally necessary edits to Robert Hoffman's tell-all book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, are almost complete. Kate doesn't like this, obviously, because she doesn't want the book to ever see the light of day again.
Now, according to RadarOnline, Kate wants ex-husband Jon Gosselin to go to jail (and lose the right to see their eight kids) for providingRobert Hoffman with the computer hard drive that contains Kate's own detailed accounts of her less-than-stellar parenting habits (to put it kindly).
To add a little humor to the situation, Kate Major, Jon's ex and now fiance to Michael Lohan, wants to testify as a character witness in Kate's favor.
Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World has been pulled by Amazon. The tell-all book was available for purchase for only two days before two legal teams, Lavely & Singer and Williams & Connolly, each demanded that Amazon pull the book due to infringement rights.
After the Kate Gosselin child abuse allegations took the internet by storm last week, Robert came under fire as well. Many readers question how the reporter just happened to "find" Kate's personal journals and why he wrote a book instead of contacting Child Protection Services.
Robert says he found Kate's computer hard drives in the trash. The former US Weekly reporter says, "I can tell you that all of my information regarding Kate Gosselin used in the book was obtained by me personally through completely legal means."
Furthermore, Robert claims that only about 10% of the information in the book was taken from Kate's hard drive. "There is so much more that hasn't been revealed," Robert says. "I also have photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book."
Shocking new child abuse claims surrounding Kate Gosselinsurfaced today. Reporter Robert Hoffman alleges the Gosselin kids have suffered extreme forms of discipline at the hands of their mother. And, he says, he has written proof.
Hoffman was an employee of the Reading Eagle, which is the local paper in Gosselin Land,until 2007. Hoffman later went on to write for US Weekly.
At some point, Hoffman and Jon Gosselin became friends, which allowed him access to their home. Now, Hoffman claims he found one of Kate's journals. With all this information in hand, Hoffman has written a tell-all book about Kate titledKate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, which Kate's lawyers are attempting to block from being published.
“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence,” Hoffman says. "She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers."
This just in, Jon Gosselin issues a public apology to Kate Gosselin. This happens just one month after Kate is on record saying they’re living peacefully. Either hell froze over or the Gosselins are in cahoots once again; these are the only two options I’ll believe. I mean, they could simply be acting like adults, but that would be so out of character.
Jon tells People that he and Kate are getting along now and he’s sorry for the way he acted after their vicious divorce. “I was passive-aggressive,” he says. “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.” Now, they’re communicating freely – and even openly giving each other compliments? “I’ll call [Kate] up and say, ‘Mady’s sick. What do I do?’ And she’ll tell me,” he says. “She’s a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles.”
It has been two years since Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin separated and roughly two months since their last Twitter feud. After many years of abuse, eight kids, a hit TV show come and gone, and a very nasty public divorce, are Kate and Jon finally going to act like adults and be civil to one another for the sake of their children? According to the insufferable self-involved star, yes, they are.
She tells Ann Curry of the Today show that her relationship with Jon is more peaceful than ever. In her signature spin to make herself look like the devoted parent picking up the pieces, she says, “He’s been really positive and more available and it’s just less stressful. I feel like he’s working with me and the kids notice it – and that’s good because I’ve always wanted peace for them.”
