Kate Gosselin


Jon Gosselin’s fifteen minutes of fame doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. In his recent interview on ABC’s special Primetime: Family secrets, the father of eight, says estranged wife Kate, would only agree to therapy with Dr. Phil.

“I was very hesitant,” Jon says. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?'”

According to Jon, the session with Dr. Phil was more about fixing the image of their hit TLC show rather than their broken marriage.

“We talked about the brand and corporate things and making the brand work,” he says. “I felt it was weird. I was like, ‘Why am I here? I could be snowboarding.’ It wasn’t helping.”

Dr. Phil released a statement to ABC News saying, “I respect the Gosselins’ privacy, I have no comment on their marriage.”

During the interview, Jon previously admitted that Kate refused to go to any other kind of therapy to make their marriage work.

“I have a $22,000 therapy bill,” he says. “I mean, I tried to have marriage counseling. I did it myself. She refused to go.”


Jon Gosselin continues to drop some bombshells in his recent verbal lashing of his estranged wife, Kate Gosselin.

In more of his interview with ABC News, Jon continues to trash Kate, claiming she took his wedding ring, may have had an affair with her bodyguard, and saying he despises her.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad accuses Kate, 34, of “feeding into the frenzy” by appearing on magazine covers bashing him. “I despise [her] because she’s not speaking from the heart,” Jon tells ABC News. “Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”

Jon also slams Kate for claiming she still wears her wedding ring because she doesn’t want to “upset” their eight children. Says Jon, “I think she still wears the ring for public perception. I don’t wear my ring because she took my ring. I don’t have it. ” He continues. “I laid it down one night. It was gone. Who else would take it? I checked all the — underneath my kids’ pillows. That’s where everything ends up in the house anyway. So it wasn’t there.”

Jon goes on to speculate that Kate might have had an affair with her bodyguard, Steve Neild. “I speculate, but I don’t know — that’s a general feel. You know, almost like when they were traveling together, I felt jealous,” he said. “Here, I’m Mr. Mom. And then there’s some other guy traveling with my wife. Whether it’s protection or not, it’s all in — it’s in the back of my mind.” Kate has always denied the affair rumors.

In a statement to ABC News, Kate attempts to take the high road saying: “While I certainly have a very different perception of how our marriage dissolved, for the sake of my children I maintain that I’m not going to go into details of aspects I believe should remain private.”



In the second part of his interview with Good Morning America, Jon Gosselin continues to slam estranged wife Kate, claiming that her “constant verbal “abuse” caused friction in their 10-year-marriage.

“Our relationship will never be fixed,” he tells ABC News’ Chris Cuomo. “… I don’t trust her anymore. I was abused … I was beaten down … I’m not going back to that life style.”

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad also slams Kate for not being honest to the media about the collapse of their marriage.

“She knows the truth,” he says. “I wish to God, she would speak from emotions … She’s not speaking from the heart. Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV.”

Jon says their marriage reached a breaking point once he “stood up to Kate” for the first time, telling her that he wanted to go out with his friends.


Jon Gosselin appears in his first television interview following the divorce announcement from estranged wife, Kate Gosselin. In the interview, he talks about years of abuse during their 10-year marriage.

“I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down,” he says on ABC’s Good Morning America. “She’ll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn’t going anywhere.”

He also says that Kate was always travelling while he had to stay with the kids — 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah).

“Well, excuse me, I’m taking care of the kids. She’s on book tours, she’s doing all these things. You know, she’s gone a week. You know, comes back. Packs up and leaves again,” Gosselin, 32, says. “I’m standing there like, ‘Oh, OK. Your mom’s gone again.’

Since the split, things have been stressful for the couple, he says. An incident occurred last month, during which the police was called into their home, because Kate unexpectedly showed up while he was spending time with the kids.

“I wouldn’t let her in the gate,” says Jon, who is still dating Hailey Glassman, the 22 year old daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s 2006 tummy tuck. “I said I’m spending time with my kids … and she’s going to have to leave and she tried to cry it up with the cops and it didn’t work and they told her she had to leave.”

Following in the footsteps of his wife Kate, Jon Gosselin has also scored his first sit-down interview since Kate filed for divorce back in June.

Good Morning America scored the first post-split interview with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. On Friday, Jon sat down with GMA‘s Chris Cuomo and spoke out on Kate Gosselin, TLC, and his future in showbiz.

A source on set during the taping tells E! News that Jon was “very open and honest” about his feelings toward Kate and even delved into his thoughts on the future of Jon & Kate Plus Eight.

“TLC has had him on a gag order and he’s sick of it,” says the source.

“Jon says he doesn’t see himself as a celebrity, but because the public does, it will make it hard for him to go back to a normal life and a normal job,” spills the source. “He wants to stay in the TV industry and has a lot of ideas.”

Jon’s interview is scheduled to air on Good Morning America in the next week, as well as ABC’s other news staple 20/20.


Kate Gosselin made some interesting revelations as she appeared on Larry King Live Tuesday night.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom made is clear she is not yet ready for romance, despite the fact that husband Jon has been seen canoodling with many women. “I am not yet divorced officially,” she told Larry King when asked if she feels single.

As for attracting potential suitors, Kate made it clear that she’s “too busy” to date. “I’m lonely, but I’m very busy,” she said stoically.

When asked how her eight children are handling the split, Gosselin said: “They understand the process [of divorce]. They’re working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They’re doing remarkably well.”

Kate however acknowledged that their life isn’t always peaceful. She explained the recent encounter that resulted in cops coming to their PA home. “It was not this huge fight,” she said. “It was just a thing where I wanted to be there with the kids as opposed to a babysitter. And he wasn’t fond of that idea.”

In other news, it was announced today that Kate will be appearing as a guest host on ABC’s The View on Sept. 14 and 15.

She will be filling in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who will still be on maternity leave when The View returns from its summer-rerun schedule on Sept. 8.


It seems Jon Gosselin is tired of all the negative attention he’s been receiving recently. He now claims to want out of Jon & Kate Plus 8, the same show that made him famous.

“I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I’m living. This is 24/7,” he told Usmagazine outside his $1.1 million Pennsylvania home Monday. “I don’t even want to do taping for the show anymore.”

Jon goes on to say he’s stuck filming and doing promotional appearances to make as much money as possible. According to a source, Jon is also suspicious of Kate hiding money ahead of their divorce proceedings. The couple makes an estimated $75,000 per episode.

“I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work,” Jon told US.

Jon went on to tape Jon & Kate Plus 8 with the kids later on that day. The family threw a fundraising lemonade stand.

Interestingly, most of the negative attention was brought on by none other than Jon himself. His sudden desire to want to quit Jon & Kate Plus 8 might also have to do with the rumors of a new reality show. He allegedly has plans to appear on a reality show titled “Divorced Dad’s Club”


According to sources, TLC is very unhappy with Jon Gosselin due to his recent behavior, and plans to appear on a reality show called “Divorced Dad’s Club”. The show, which is said to be in the works, will follow the lives of five famous divorced dads. The show is being produced by Endomol, a major production company.

TLC allegedly fired off a letter to Jon because he was in violation of the morals clause of his contract. He is not supposed to be seen hoping from one woman bar to another, while publicly drinking .

While Kate Gosselin can be seen taking care of the kids most of the time, Jon can be found plastered on the front page of tabloid magazines.

Sources tell TMZ that Kate is truly concerned about the kids welfare emotionally and financially. Last season, the money made from the show was placed in a joint account. While Jon spent his on who knows what, Kate placed most of hers in a college fund for the kids. Sources say a judge has placed Kate over the family’s finances because she was seen as the more responsible of the two. Jon gets limited access to the account for basic stuff.

Kate’s rep say Jon has found another means of making money by selling pictures and stories of him and the kids to the tabloids.
