Jon Gosselin Quits Showbiz, Gets A Real Job!

| Filed under: The GosselinsReality TV


Well, we're glad to hear that he finally had enough sense to give up the limelight.

Sources close to Jon Gosselin have revealed that the former reality star has opted to take a more traditional 9-5 career, and will now be working in sales marketing for the eco-friendly company Global Green Property Services!

The insider explains:

“He's much more content blending in and being able to live his life without the world watching. Jon doesn’t long for fame at all.”

Well, we doubt that to a degree, but this is definitely a more responsible move on his part than for what we'd normally give him credit.

It will be good for the kids to have a parent that is trying to stay out of the media.

Best of luck with the transition, bb!

    Perhaps that narcissistic cun*t Kate will also have the "good sense to give up the limelight".

  2. 2

    Jon never wanted the tv career, Perez. He said that on camera, while he was on the show, more than once over the last two years the show was on.

  3. 3

    So true to that Rubber Rat LOL :) @ least it seems like one parent is getting their commen sense back……..

  4. 4

    I thought his background was in IT. What took him so long to get a job to support his family?

  5. 5

    He really hasn't been in the spotlight for awhile now. Seems that he got caught up in it, had his fun, learned his lesson and then came back to reality. Good for him, too bad his ex-wife can't do the same instead of dragging her kids all over the place.

    Jon is a good man and great father.

    Re: *Purple Angel*

    Agreed! :)

    I ALWAYS liked Jon, and always disliked Kate. She seemed like a crazy and controlling bitch.
    Good going, Jon. Hopefully those kids can find some stability from you, now, since their mother certainly isn't providing it.

  9. 9

    It's about time! The guy has 8 kids, and trying to use his 'celeb' status to make money for all those kids was so disgusting. Now maybe his kids will grow up to respect him since he now has a grown up job again.

    Re: twistedwords – but it's okay if Kate uses the kids, right?

  11. 11

    Tough to say but perhaps Jon did not want to be a fame whore - just trying to keep up with Kate who is good at manipulating press?

  12. 12

    I read about this over a week ago. Seriously Perez!!! Get with it!

  13. 13

    Too bad that fame whore bitch Kate doesn't have the good sense to do the same thing.

  14. 14

    good for him. finally realized that its better for him to get a normal job to support his children, and try to provide a semi-stable upbringing for them. cause they sure arent getting that from their attention-whore mother kate.

  15. 15

    Its about time. He was never a star to me anyways! just a ratzi chaser.

  16. 16

    I don't know: Do you have to be smart in order to succeed at sales marketing? Because if you do, then this dumb pathetic idiot is going to immediately fail. Holy shit, have you read the stories about this guy? He is intensely stupid, in addition to being skeezy, pudgy and highly confused. And everybody knows about his small thing ha ha!

  17. 17

    Re: twistedwords

    They won't grow up to respect that nasty slug of a "mother".

  18. 18

    Re: gayhoe

    But Kate is a "star" to you?

  19. 19

    He's only joining folks in the real world because he hasn't been given a better opportunity.

  20. 20

    Guess the hoochies won't have anything to do with him now that they realize he's a deadbeat dad, and the woman everyone is calling a fame-ho was only fame-ho'ing to get money to pay for the expenses for the kids. What's she supposed to do? Go on welfare? She's got way too many kids to afford daycare if she got a "regular" job, so she has no choice but to prostitute herself on TV to get the dough to feed those malajusted pathetic creatures. Neither parent is a prize, but at least MOM got her butt out there and EARNED, while Daddy spent money like a drunk and ran around with young hoochies.

  21. 21

    He's doing cold calls which means he only gets paid if he sells some insrance or something. Hardly a "real job". Probably a scam to get out of paying child support as always (and this is really old news.

    The cow Ellen keeps selling these stories and Jon is now being held in contempt of court lol

  22. 22

    He still rules as world's douchiest dad! His kids ruined his youth remember? LOL

  23. 23

    Let's be honest. He gave up fame AFTER SEVERAL failed attempts at using his little fame for solo projects. And this AMAZING father/man was the one who had the affair with a 23 year old and a family friend. Remember Halley? Kate may be controlling, but you would be too if you had 8 kids and a lazy husband.

  24. 24

    I was a huge fan of Jon & Kate but he was just irresposible and inconsiderate to his family. I'm sure he didn't want the limelight…my ass!!! He loved the fact that desperate young bimbos came as a reward from his show! Please. I'm sure he'll miss getting his d*** sucked know that he gonna try to blend in!!!

  25. 25

    i don't understand why you're saying you doubt he doesn't want to be in the spotlight. he's always said that he didn't like doing the show and he was the one that tried to stop kate from continuing to put those kids on television. yeah, he did some stupid shit for awhile there, but he's stayed out of the spotlight for awhile now. good for him for realizing that his 15 minutes were up and getting back to his real life. i wish kate would do the same thing.

    Re: Fartso – actually, kate is not struggling for money at all. she and jon both got paid quite a large sum of money per episode for that show and they get a cut from dvd sales. she also gets paid for the appearances she continues to do. she is not sticking around in the spotlight for the sake of her children. she's not hard up for cash to take care of them and i would imagine that each child has a large sum of money waiting for them from the show as well, so it's not like they'll ever be lacking in that area. kate is the one that craves the spotlight and is willing to leave her children in the care of nannies for days on end while she continues to seek attention from the media. nothing that woman does is for the sake of her children. if she was doing anything for the sake of her children, she would stop exploiting them on television.

    so this sleazebag gets a shady job and suddenly he's a good dad? amnesia much?

  29. 29

    Well it is about time. Maybe his x will follow in his footsteps….

  30. 30

    um… what happened to his FACE. he used to be not so bad looking. now he looks like an on the rag woman who ate herself a couple shots of salt.

  31. 31

    The man is so hot!!!

  32. 32

    I don't think he is as bad as everyone makes out :/ at least he is working and not whoring himself and his kids like some people we could mention *cough* kate gosselin *cough*
