Jon Gosselin

What’s a man to do when it seems the whole world is against him, including his own girlfriend? Well if you’re Jon Gosselin, you begin consulting with a Rabbi in an attempt to reconnect with your “deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self.”

The 32-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad released a statement addressing some of his recent behaviors. “I am well aware that my behavior over the past few months has not always reflected my personal and religious values. I further accept that I have allowed myself to become somewhat severed from my own moral anchor and be carried away by the challenges of fame.”

This statements comes right after his girlfriend, 22 year old Hailey Glassman, revealed in a nationally televised interview that Jon is emotionally abusive to her.

Jon continues, “It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect.”

He finishes his statement by trying to appeal to the public. “I wish for the public to know my regret at having, at times, betrayed the moral principles that have always guided me.  I am committed to making things right with Kate and especially my children. I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself.”

Jon with Hailey Glassman

Jon Gosselin’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is opening up about her life with Jon — and she paints a not so pretty picture.

In an exclusive interview with The Insider, Hailey drops a bombshell, accusing the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad of being emotionally abusive to her. “We’re at a point now where I don’t know why I love him,” she says in the interview set to air Thursday and Friday.

Hailey claims Jon, 32, has become increasingly “frustrated and angry.” She continues, “He’ll call me and take his anger out on me. He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused. I cry and say, ‘Why are you so mean to me?’ He takes it out on me.”

So what other qualities does Hailey dislike about Jon? He “has trouble with the truth… he will dance and dance around his lies. He’s like Jekyll and Hyde.”

She however makes it clear she still loves the alleged emotional abuser, she adds: “I don’t want to leave him all alone. I love him but I dislike him at times. When I love someone, I would never hurt them.”

So let’s see, he’s emotionally abusive, a cheater, and a lair. Sounds like a great catch to us!

Kate Gosselin

TLC aired a special episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 on Monday night, which showed Kate Gosselin answering questions from viewers.

Kate answered what she described as “any and all reasonable questions.” Kate made it clear that filming the TLC reality show hasn’t harmed her kids, a claim her estranged husband, Jon Gosselin, 32, made to try to get the show canceled. “They’re not suffering from this,” she said. “The fact that they have these different experiences they need to handle is only going to help them in life.”

Kate also revealed she wants to stay in the spotlight even after her show goes off the air. “I’ve done enough years on TV that I feel like it’s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” she said. “I’d love to be in a movie at some point, I’d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.”

When asked if she wanted to get married again, she answered, “I struggle because I really don’t want to be married,” she said. “Can you blame me?” She admits that single motherhood is tough — “the aloneness is so alone.” But ten years from now? “Nobody’s going to buy into my mess. I’ll probably be alone, but that’s OK.”

She also made it clear that despite her public financial feud with Jon, the kids do have funds set aside for their future. “There is a healthy amount of money put away for the kids, and it is safe,” Kate confirmed. “It will not be touched other than for education. The money is there, come hell or highwater.”

Jon-Gosselin-Kate-Gosselin

It seems the money feud that has been brewing between Jon & Kate Gosselin is finally settled, for now at least.

Attorneys for Jon Gosselin and Kate confirmed Monday morning that Jon has complied with a court order to return money missing from the couple’s joint bank account, a total of $180,000.

So this dispute is finally over and we can breathe a sigh of relief right? Well not exactly, as Jon is now accusing Kate of refusing to account for how she spent $33,000 in cash withdrawals. Kate has always maintained she used her withdrawals to pay bills.

Unfortunately for Jon, the judge found Kate to be in compliance, after her attorney provided receipts for nearly $60,000 that Jon claimed she had taken during the same time frame. As for the remaining $33,000 Jon said was unaccounted for, Kate’s lawyer said the court didn’t require such an accounting.

Jon showed up in court for Monday’s hearing; Kate, who has a book signing appearance in Long Beach, California Monday afternoon, did not attend the hearing. Her attorney was there on her behalf.

In other news, Jon is once again without a lawyer, as his Pennsylvania counsel, Charlie Meyer resigned as Jon’s attorney as of Monday. “I’ll just get another attorney,” Jon told PEOPLE. “I have to.”

Gosselin

A new report shows Jon Gosselin demanded $10,000 – $12,000 to make a radio show appearance.

According to TMZ, the host of Tampa’s MJ Morning Show said he contacted Jon’s rep in the hopes of booking him to guest co-host the show for one morning. The radio show offered two first class round trip plane tickets, limo service and a “first class” hotel room.

He however received a reply from Jon’s rep demanding 10 – 12k for his time.  When asked why Jon was worth so much, his rep replied saying, “[Jon's] name and appearance on your show will instantly draw press … and will be a high point for the show.”  The rep also describes Jon as “quite funny, sharp witted and interesting.”

In other news, a special episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will air next Monday on TLC.  It will show Kate Gosselin answering questions submitted by viewers.

Radaronline got a sneak peek at some of the questions Kate will be answering. They include, “Do you ever see yourself getting married

again?” and “Is there money put away for the kids’ education that neither parent can touch?”  Nearly 9000 questions were submitted.

We also reported that Nadya Suleman aka Octomom recently revealed her crush on Jon.  Unfortunately for Nadya, the feeling is not mutual.  When Jon was asked about Nadya’s comments, “No way” was his reply.

Jon and Kate’s life is full of drama and the Gosselins kids are beginning to feel the stress, thanks to their parents being in the tabloids constantly.

In a recent article in Vanity Fair, Kate reveals that the kids are beginning to “act out”. But like any mother, she is hoping this is a phase that will soon pass as they adjust to their parents’ divorce.

“I’m trying to give them the grace to see, if they’re acting out of line, I’m trying to look deeper into why that is,” she says in the article. “Why the kids are acting out. Cause it’s all inter-related. I mean, they don’t see it, but it’s all interconnected.”

According to Kate, the kids are heart broken about the termination of their hit show Jon and Kate Plus 8. The show’s cancellation occurred when Jon denied the network the rights to film the children once TLC announced plans to relaunch the show as Kate Plus 8.

In an interview last week with the Today show, Kate said, “Over the weekend I told [the kids] that we’re not filming at this point. And actually, times eight, there was wailing and sobbing. They love our crew, they love the interaction, they love the events. There is nothing harmful about it. They are angry.”

In other news, Nadya Suleman aka Octomom is speacking out on her crush on Jon Gosselin. Nadya revealed yesterday, “I kind of have a crush on Jon Gosselin,” the single mother of fourteen gushed to Radaronline. “I think he’s hot…he looks cute in purple!”

Not sure if the world is ready for Jon & Nadya Plus 22.

Jon Gosselin with Hailey Glassman

Despite being on the other end of a major lawsuit filed by TLC, Jon Gosselin enjoyed a PDA filled weekend with his 22 year old girlfriend Hailey Glassman in New York City.

Jon took Hailey on a carriage ride in New York City Saturday.  According to Radar, Jon was also joined by Hailey’s parents for their weekend getaway.

The happy foursome headed to the famed Plaza Hotel where they dined at The Oak Room.  On their way there, Jon posed for pictures with a group of girls who were out celebrating one of their birthdays.

Jon is accused by TLC of violating his contract by making paid and unpaid TV appearances without the network’s permission. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified compensatory damages, demands he return money he made off TV appearances.  It is reported that TLC hired one of the best law firms in the country.

Perhaps Jon should start saving some of his funds for a his legal defense team.

This may come as relief to some viewers who seem to have had enough of the Gosselin drama. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality show will officially end in November, reports RadarOnline.

Since Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce has turned into a soap opera and they both seem to love the spotlight, we can bet you haven’t seen the end of them. Although TLC hasn’t made any official announcements, RadarOnline was able to confirm the show’s termination next month.

Jon has denied the network the rights to film the children and TLC will not challenge that. As of now, the newly titled show — Kate Plus 8 is also done for, that is unless Jon changes his mind.

“TLC has no plans to film unless the situation is resolved,” said the source.

There’s something sentimental about seeing the old picture above of the Gosselin family. Fame is an awful drug. Perhaps getting off national television will be best for the family.
