We knew as soon as this story broke he would come weaseling out of his hole and make an encore appearance before fading into a distant memory.
Alright, Jon Gosselin. This is it - your last moment to be relevant. What do you have to say for yourself?
Jon admits that he is "very relieved" that his ex-wife's show, Kate Plus 8, was canceled yesterday, claiming he's glad his children will be kept away from the spotlight. He explained:
"I hope they can have more private family moments. I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."
Any personal issues they have the in future will have more to do with their parents behavior on television that actually being on television. We've said it before and we'll say it again - from what we've seen, the camera never really looked like they disrupt the kids lives. To them, it was just like having a pushy relative film your birthday parties and vacations. We never saw them put in situations where they felt violated by the cameras and say what you will about Kate Gosselin, we don't think she would allow that on her watch. She's too anal!
But we agree with Jon, as unlikely as that sounds. It is time for this family to rebuild a little bit and to do it in private. The kids are growing up fast and these formative years don't need to be on display. Audiences had their time with the Gosselins; now the Gosselins should have time with each other.
