When I was young and naive, I always assumed that someone being on television meant they were rich for life. Of course, I now realize how stupid that assumption is, but geez! It takes a special kind of fiscally stupid and wildly irresponsible person to blow through reality show paychecks, yet these idiots never seem to learn from their destitute counterparts’ mistakes.
Case in point? Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Kate and Jon Gosselin are now (separately) scraping the bottom of the barrel after a contentious and drawn-out divorce coupled with a love of rooster haircuts, spray tans, and Ed Hardy. Haven’t they heard of trust funds and financial planners and, oh, I don’t know…saving the copious amounts of money made on a now defunct reality show? It’s quite appalling to think about, really.
The tale of woe continues… Jon Gosselin has been evicted from his home.
In May, Jon was fired from his job as a waiter for coming in late and blowing off shifts. Jon’s next attempt at employment – credit card sales – did not work out either. Now the broke and unemployed father of eight has been evicted.
“The eviction happened last week,” an insider confirmed. “Jon could no longer afford the rent. The job at the credit card company he was working for didn’t pan out. The anticipated income wasn’t there and the situation deteriorated.”
Yesterday, TLC announced Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 will air as a two-part special and focus on how the kids – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel - have grown and what's new in Kate's life and career.
TLCshared, "The special also looks back at some of the most memorable and poignant family moments from the past several years and highlights what the day-to-day routine has been like for Kate and the kids since we last saw them." Viewers will also see spring break activities, family outings, and the sextuplets' carnival-themed 10th birthday party.
The Kate Plus 8 special premieres June 19 and concludes June 26 – and the fun begins at 10/9c both nights. Check out a short video clip of Kate Plus 8: Sextuplets Turn 10 below. Aww Kate is just as warm as I remember her to be.
Rumor has it, no one's favorite father of eight, Jon Gosselin, lost his job as a waiter. Raise your hand if you're shocked.
Last year, Jon started waiting and bussing tables in PA. At the time, he said he couldn't find an IT job that was flexible enough for a father of eight. Let's play along, shall we, and pretend he actually parents eight children on a daily basis. No judgment here. Waiting tables is an honest day's work – and it's more "real world" work thanKate Gosselin has done since Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired.
That said, Radar reported, Jon was fired from this job a few months ago. "Jon was fired for blowing off shifts and coming in late," claimed the source. "He had no work ethic and felt he could come and go as he pleased."
So who would have ever thought that Jon Gosselin would be reconciling with ex-wife Kate? It's crazy, right? I'm kidding, of course! The former Jon & Kate Plus Eight stars still despise one another, but I needed a good teaser. The pair is once again at odds in the media (because being pissed at each other in private doesn't garner any attention).
Lashing out about his wife's decision to feature their twins and sextuplets on a TLC update special, Jon is expressing his disgust and disappointment with the fact he wasn't asked to be included at the lengths Kate will go to in exploiting their children. You know, I was truly on Jon's side until I watched him on Couples Therapy. Geez. Cue the violins!
TMZ is reporting that Jon Gosselin‘s apartment in New York was apparently ransacked and vandalized. According to Jon’s lawyer, a “butcher knife” wielding maniac sliced and diced the entire place into a million pieces.
His attorney tells TMZ that when Jon entered his Manhattan apartment Saturday afternoon, he found his “shoes, shirts, luggage, bed, curtain, rugs and other furnishings” had been slashed by a “sick perpetrator.” The perpetrator also stole the following items – Jon’s television, CD player, coffee maker, a Nintendo Wii game, dishes, pots and pans. His attorney also says a Ming vase, believed to be over 100 years old … was “smashed to pieces.”
So who is this sick perpetrator?Hailey Glassman seems to be a suspect. According to TMZ, a note signed with Hailey’s first and last name was left behind, “speared” to Jon’s bedroom dresser with a butcher knife. Law enforcement confirms Hailey’s name was signed at the bottom of the note, but explain that doesn’t mean she had anything to do with it. TMZ also confirmed that whoever wrote the note called Jon a cheater.
Jon’s lawyer says the NYPD fingerprinted and photographed the scene yesterday and Jon wants felony charges brought against whoever is responsible.
Radaronline is reporting that Hailey has lawyered up and will only talk to cops with her lawyer present.
We reported yesterday that Hailey was none too happy with Jon, as she claimed Jon pocketed the rent money she was giving him for their NY apartment, all while not paying the rent.
This week’s cover of InTouch magazine reveals an explosive report detailing Jon Gosselin’s affair with his 23 year old babysitter, Stephanie Santoro.
The former waitress and single mom sold gave an exclusive interview to InTouch, in which she claims that during the month she spent employed as Jon’s nanny, she had a passionate affair with theJon & Kate Plus 8 star in the family home. Stephanie reveals she saw a side of Jon that’s bound to shock even his most devoted fans.
It was reported a while back that Stephanie was sleeping with Jon. Jon however denied those reports, claiming he had been faithful to girlfriend Hailey Glassman.
Below are excerpts from Stephanie’s bombshell interview. She even goes as far as to rate Jon’s bedroom performance -
How did you first meet Jon?
I had met Jon and Kate a few years back at a twins convention when they had Cara and Mady [now 8]. Jon and I became friends when I was working at [Pennsylvania bar] Legends, and he came in sometimes. After they filed for divorce, he started hanging out there a lot, and we started talking more.
When did you get intimate?
We were talking on the phone one night, and the kids were all at home, and he was like, “What are you doing tonight?” and I didn’t have plans. So he goes, “Let’s hang out. We can go hang out in the hot tub and talk more about everything.” So I went over, and we were talking. He asked me if I could give a back massage, and I was like, “Okay, whatever.” So I gave him one and then he was like, “my turn.” While we were sitting there, he said, “Well, I guess we can kiss just once.” At one point he said, “Whatever you do, don’t fall in love with me, because it’s going to be impossible for me not to fall in love with you.”
During your relationship, how many times did you sleep together?
How would you rate the sex?
On the romantic end, it was a nine. I wasn’t looking for the pleasure part of it. If you care about someone, it’s not about how good they are in bed. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the best I ever had.
Jon Gosselin’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is speaking out on their new relationship. The pair appear to still be going strong a whole week after they were first photographed together.
Photos and stories of Hailey being a coke addict/bar hopping/part-time lesbian be damned. These two are in the it for the long haul. Hailey spoke out to People magazine in a new interview saying she is surprised to be dating Jon, “If you had told me a few months ago, I wouldn’t have believed you.”
Oh there’s more. Hailey says the feelings began to develop while Jon was nursing his broken heart at her parents’ New York City home in May. “He was so strong,” Glassman says. “I admired him.”
She goes on to deny engagement rumors, while claiming her parents “love” Jon.
Hailey also manages to get a shot in at Jon’s ex wife, Kate Gosselin, when asked about what she loves most about the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “I’m a huge believer in not controlling someone,” says Hailey. “I’ll give my opinion but tell him to do what he wants to do. He said, ‘I’m just not used to having an option.’ I told him life is about options.”
