Just a couple of days ago, we reported that Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman had broken up. It now seems the father of eight is trying to make amends with his ex-girlfriend, while also repairing his strained relationship with Kate.
Jon talked to a small crowd Sunday night in New York at an event sponsored by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s organization, This World. During the public dialogue with the celebrity Rabbi, the reality star, 32, said, “I think I’m just misunderstood. I’m not a fame seeker. Everyday I look in the mirror and I wonder [why I’m famous]. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC.”
Jon once again said he plans to ask estranged wife, Kate Gosselin, to forgive him. “I want to apologize to Kate in private,” he said. “I’ll apologize to her for openly having relationships in the public eye. That was a huge mistake, because if she would’ve done that to me, I would have been extremely pissed off. Not because our relationship is over, it’s almost like a stab in the back. And now that I think about it, it was a very wrong thing to do. I definitely regret it.”
When it came to Hailey, Jon said he was taking the advise of the Rabbi, who doesn’t think neither he nor Kate should be dating until their divorce is final. He however hopes to reconcile with Hailey in the future. “We decided not to take a break, just slow things down, until I get through my divorce and I know everything is settled and okay. I don’t want another failure in my relationships. I don’t want to make the same mistakes I made with Kate, with Hailey. I would just be repeating the pattern over again,” he said.
