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.”
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.”

DO YOU BELIEVE KATE IS LONELY OR JUST CRAVING THE SPOTLIGHT AGAIN? ARE YOU HAPPY KATE AND JON HAVE WORKED OUT THEIR DIFFERENCES AND ARE GETTING ALONG?
After pleading for television gigs and insisting that she will never be able to provide for her brood turned up nothing, it seems mom of many, Kate Gosselin is taking her ex-husband’s advice and returning to nursing.
Kate, 36, tried and tried some more to become a TV star in her own right, even pitching television show ideas, but no job offers apparently came in, so with no where else to turn she is eating humble pie and pulling on some scrubs!
I know! Poor patients! If you recall, free bitchJon Gosselinpublicly chastised Kate’s refusal to let go of a life as a C-List celebrity; reminding her “reality TV is not a career.” Encouraging the woman who was his former partner in fame grubbing to “Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”
After months and months of hanging onto the delusion that people want to see her mug on their TV screens screaming at her kids and throwing tantrums giving parenting advice or hosting talk shows, Kate has accepted it’s not going to happen. According to Life & Style the former terror of Kate Plus 8 has completed courses to renew her nursing Incense as a labor-and-delivery nurse. Pregnant women of Pennsylvania, you have been warned!
“She just completed more courses to renew her license,” a ‘friend’ reveals to Life & Style.”She has no clue how she’ll continue to pay for the kids’ private school and living expenses,” adds the pal of Kate’s decision to reconsider nursing ( though she has yet to find a job in that field either!).
Kate has laughed off claims that the family is rolling in the dough and became filthy rich through the series. “I read what we apparently make and it’s hysterical,” she told The Huffington Post. “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t.”
However previously released accounts of Kate’s monthly expenses don’t paint the portrait of a woman living on modest means! It’s been reported she spends as much as $500,000 per year on staff alone! She needs to employ that full-time bodyguard! For her safety…
“The bottom line is I have eight kids to provide for,” Kate recently admitted and I guess that is the bottom line. Although I find it very hard to believe Jon and Kate saved no money after several seasons on a very successful (at one point) reality show and several other accompanying endorsements, books, and media deals. I guess Kate’s GTH (Gym, Tan, Hair) regiment really costs a lot!

Do you believe Kate will actually return to nursing or is this just a last ditch effort to get networks interested in her plight? Is Kate desperate for attention or work?
UPDATE – So much for Kate Gosselin getting back to nursing and more importantly, getting off our TVs! Kate actually took to her twitter page to deny she is returning to nursing. “No truth,” tweeted Kate. “Renewed license when up for renewal. And that got it all going!”
Two weeks after TLC cancelled her reality show Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin is finally admitting what has been widely reported, which is that she is indeed petrified about her future and being able to take care of her family.
Despite having a nursing degree, the mother of eight graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine with the heading “Will Her Kids Be Ok?” Under that heading is a quote from Kate saying she is “really scared” about her future. Poor Kate, the horror of having to get a real J.O.B. to care for her kids!
In the interview with the mag, Kate reveals she wasn’t “ready” when TLC pulled the plug on her show. She also reveals she cries in bed when no one’s looking. Yes she went there.
“When [Collin] learned of the show’s cancellation he said ‘I feel like crying but I can’t,’” Kate says. “I said, ‘Because you don’t want anyone to see your tears?’ and he said yes. So I said ‘Cry when you’re in bed and nobody’s looking. That’s what I do.”
Kate goes on to admit the transition from a reality TV mom to a regular mom, you know, like other millions of mothers out there, isn’t going to be an easy one.
“I’m freaking out. Big time,” she tells PEOPLE, adding that her plus 8 “weren’t ready,” to leave the show, which has been airing since 2005. She continues, “Nobody was. I’ve never quit a job in my life without having something else lined up. I don’t know what’s next.”
But fret not as Kate, 36, vows to work hard in other to maintain the lifestyle she’s provided for her kids. “I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” she says. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”
“I don’t want to take anything away that [the kids] have been given,” Kate says. “[I've saved] for a little while. People think we made gazillions of dollars, and we didn’t. After the show was canceled, I said, ‘I’ll go back to my old nursing job.’ If nothing comes up, I’ll do it. But the scary reality is, 12-hour nursing shifts every day wouldn’t let me continue to provide well for me eight kids.”
It was reported days ago that Kate, who tweeted a petition to save her TLC show to her fans, has been offered a temporary co-hosting job at CBS’ talk show The Talk.
The Kate Plus 8 finale episode will air Sept. 12 on TLC.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KATE’S NEW INTERVIEW? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR HER?
In an all new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kate Gosselin finally opens up about the news of her two kids being expelled from private school.
In Touch magazine was the first media outlet to break the news two weeks ago, reporting that two of the Gosselin kids – Alexis and Collin Gosselin – both age 6, were kicked out of school for “rage issues” and bullying other kids.
Now the Kate Plus 8 mom is denying her kids were expelled, instead claiming she elected to pull them out of school for home tutoring. “Two of my children are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum,” Kate stated in the interview.
So why randomly pull two out of your eight children from school? “The pressure was getting to them,” she said. “You have the divorce anger mixed in with that. … The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.”
Right. PEOPLE magazine, which also reported the expulsion story, is however not retracting their story. In fact, they published another article yesterday following Kate’s interview, which reiterated the fact that the kids were indeed expelled from their private school.
