In what may just be the least shocking news ever, it seems that there are still fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8 who walk among us. Well fan. Singular. And it’s Kate Gosselin herself. Color me surprised!
The former reality mom turned fifteen minutes of fame diva recently tweeted, “Wow. We all agreed: we miss our show&the adventures and huge opportunities to help and entertain :)others! Why am I watching and crying??!:)” My guess is she’s crying because she’s no longer on television, but I could be totally wrong about that!
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.”
Because reality stars (past and present) thrive on attention of any kind, they’re always in the press. Good or bad! Here’s a round-up of what’s been happening as of late.
The formerReal Housewives of DC stars have had an eventful week. Perhaps they’re coordinating press releases for maximum exposure!
Up first, Mary Amons filed for divorce from husband Rich Amons. She announced her split from her husband of 26 years on Facebook! “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my twenty-six year marriage. While I have the deepest respect for my husband and wish him the very best, we have grown apart,” Mary wrote.
She then added that she wants privacy during this difficult time – which is why she publicized it on Facebook, right? What this means is that every single member of the former RHODC cast is now a single lady. Perhaps Bravo can do a former Real Housewives dating show?

It appears that reality television has become synonymous with deadbeat parents. In the latest, Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin continue to battle it out over their eight children and this time Twitter got involved!
Last week, Kate received a suspicious tweet from a follower who apparently joined twitter for the sole purpose of asking Kate about her custody issues with Jon. “is it true Jon going to court next week for nonpayment of child support?;” the user inquired. Kate was completely shocked and seemingly had no idea Jon had plans to head to court! “I don’t know if he’s going to court but wouldn’t surprise me…. How do you know this stuff?!?;” Kate asked in reply.
The user went on to accuse Jon of being a deadbeat dad, saying he was months behind on child support; revealing that Jon owes $40 per day for all eight of his children and his monthly payment is a mere $1200.
As for how the user was privy to this very private information – she claims that her niece works in the PA court system and she saw the file. Well, um… seriously I think this spells firing for a certain niece. Aunt of the year, right here!
To her credit, the formerKate Plus 8 star refused to discuss the situation, telling the user: “Woah….I’m not allowed to talk about orders from the court.…”
The user, who has no identifying information, seemingly created the account for the sole purpose of revealing this information.
Jon did not address the accusations, but did take to twitter to advise others not to ask him about the situation. “stop posting about stupid court sh*t. Consider your sources people. Dont need drama during the holiday. Thx,” he wrote.

Serve up some free drinks and watch a billion fifteen reality stars flock to the red carpet!
Gretchen Rossi, Teresa Giudice, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Jon Gosselin, Aubrey O’Day, Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik, Renee Graziano, Ali Fedotowsky, DeAnna Pappas, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Anita Gohari, and Ashley Hebert attended the ‘Night of a Billion Reality Stars’, hosted by Svedka Vodka at the Supperclub in Hollywood.
Courtney and Ben made sure to tacky up the place with heavy PDA. No doubt it was an attempt to make sure we know they’re for real. Nothing says ‘we found love on a reality show’ like massive amounts of making out on a red carpet for the world to see.
In other interesting nauseating news from that night: ‘Reformed’ famewhorer Jon Gosselin gave several interviews, sharing how much he loves living in the middle of the woods and leading a simple life.
He told Access Hollywood: “It just wasn’t for me in the end. I’ve been working 9 to 5, I’m a network engineer at a local IT company right by [my] kids’ house. I have a house in the woods. I do no normal things.”
Normal things, like attending red carpet Hollywood events. Simple, indeed.
Jon says that he and ex-wife, Kate Gosselin (who I would’ve expected to see at this event before Jon), are co-parenting the best way two fame-obsessed parents can. “We’re doing our best to co-parent. Sometimes we argue, obviously, so we have our differences in parenting and in life in general, but we only do what we can handle.”
And word to the ladies, this dad-of-the-year is single and ready to mingle: “I’m dating and just taking things slow. I’m a country boy from Pennsylvania.”

The drama between the reality tv exes reignited on Friday, March 23 when Kate decided to slam a local company she and Jon used to do business with on Twitter, accusing them of using her name for a product without her permission. Jon, then apparently, called the company to apologize, according to a posting by the company on their Facebook page, which appeared to make Kate even more irate!
A fan then tweeted to Kate: “I am a divorced mom and try not to diss my ex for sake of my daughter. Why do you diss Jon so often. not sure how that helps.”
Kate responded with: “If u knew what I know, u’d b AMAZED at my restraint! I don’t say neg stuff oft, but wrong is wrong & It should not b rewarded!” Yikes. Kate has since deleted the tweet, which was caught by Radar Online.
Jon, then got in on the action, tweeting: “Awesome day today, looking forward to the weekend. Long & interesting week, haha. so fortunate to live a simple life now! drama free.”
But, Jon got a bit nasty when a fan asked him if he and Kate missed each other. Jon responded: “Hahahahaha, best joke of the night, r u kidding me, really?” Ouch. Jon has also deleted his later tweet. Doesn’t appear the bitter feelings between these exes will be ending anytime soon!
Meanwhile, the National Enquirer is reporting that Kate, whose TLC show Kate Plus 8 got cancelled last year due to low ratings, continues to desperately try to pimp get her plus 8 back on our TVs!
The latest alleged attempt by Kate, is trying to get some of her kids on Lifetime’s hit Dance Moms, which just happens to film in her state of Pennsylvania. In fact, the Dance Moms studios are within driving distance of Kate’s home.
“Kate is obsessed with keeping her family in the limelight, and she’s been in serious talks with the Lifetime series’ producers to incorporate her daughters into the show,” a source told The Enquirer. “She thinks ‘Dance Moms’ is the perfect vehicle for getting her girls back in front of the TV cameras, and hopefully will lead to bigger opportunities for all the Gosselins.”
Kate is of course denying the report, recently tweeting, “Anything you read in the natl enquirer is lies..Especially one with my name and dance moms together! Seriously? You had to ask?”
If Dance Moms were even interested in having Kate’s kids on the show, she would have a hard time with that since Jon has stated in the past, he no longer wants his kids on television.

Did anyone else totally forget about Kate Gosselin? Cause I know I did! Not to worry, she’s back and she’s reminding us that she’s here and she really isn’t getting enough attention!
Appearing on Dr. Drew‘s Lifechangers (exactly how many shows does this man have?), despite the rumors that she is dating bodyguard Steve Neild, Kate opened up about being single and ready to mingle! I hear Match.com is working for people, Kate! “I am lonely,” says the former Kate Plus 8 star. “I clean up the house, put kids to bed, and there I sit. Ideally I would find that person – I don’t know if I feel ready for that.”
Kate admits it’s really difficult to have a love life in between raising eight kids and talking about couponing. “The odds are so against me, one mom and eight kids,” Kate admits. “I think a lot of my friends, who are being constructive, say, ‘Gosh, who are you going to meet that is going to be able to deal with eight kids?’ My answer is always if they can deal with eight kids in our situation, it probably will be the person.”
While Kate’s love tank may be empty, she says things have improved with ex-husband and former nemesis, Jon Gosselin. The two are actually getting along! “He basically lives his life and I live mine. It’s more peaceful,” Kate revealed. “Possibly he’s working now and so he feels like he’s living a regular life again and maybe a little happier with himself, so that boils down to peace between us. The kids are now okay going there.”
“I feel like he’s trying again. That’s good. The bottom line is the kids come home basically happy and that’s all that matters,” Kate says of Jon’s recently improved parenting skills.
Why do I feel like a stint on Relationship Rehab is next for Kate?
Meanwhile, Jon, who recently split from his long-term girlfriend Ellen Ross, reveals he’s enjoying being a single dad! “Being a single dad with no interruptions has really brought me closer to my children: I really feel being a single dad has improved my self-awareness and well-being,” Jon tells Star Magazine.
And when it comes to possible trying the knot again in the future, Jon admits he’s nowhere ready for that. “I still have a lot of work to do on myself, and I am an extremely busy person, between work and the children,” he told Star. “My family is the most important thing in my life. I will strive to make it better for them every day.”
