Because He Can't Help Himself, Jon Gosselin Comments On Kate's Show Canceling

| Filed under: The Gosselins

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.

    His comments are pretty short - I don't see him 'weaseling out of his hole'. Much more probable that reporters hounded him for a sound bite. ANd if you don't think the cameras disrupted the kids lives you need to talk to a psychologist and get a professional opinion on how being in the public eye affects the mental development of a child. It can be devastating. The majority of kids can survive a divorce, but the number of kids that survive fame is definitely a minority.

    I've been on Jon's side all along. Those kids should not have had a camera following them around for the past 6 years. I think his comments are fine. I am wondering what Kate's next step is going to be - I am sure she is looking for another gig already. Talk show host maybe?

    Perez remember that great little tv clip you had with Jennifer Anniston not to long ago? Like at all?! Why wouldn't he comment on a show that he USED to be on? Why wouldn't he agree to a 30 second statement when I'm sure EVERYONE is contacting him? This is nothing new, he went to court to try to get his kids out. Wanting your kids to have a normal life, not having your kids miss school because Mommy thinks it's okay to just pull out kids that already have issues adapting to the school environment for a tv special is okay.

    Maybe you need to go back into YOUR hole until you can act like a mature adult. Jon did exactly what everyone, including yourself, wanted him to do. He pulled out of the Hollywood life (he could still be doing a Michael Lohan), got a real job, a normal girlfriend and he is back to being a normal guy. Do not fault the guy for wanting what 99% of the parents out there want for their kids, a NORMAL life.

    I agree with you, rosebud……I imagine reporters went to him for comments. I watched K+8 last night, sorry to admit it. I haven't watched since the divorce debacle, but I watched last night after I heard it was cancelled. I really thought it was going to be the episode I kept seeing advertised, a bus trip or something. I wish I had a count of how many times Kate subtly or not-so-subtly threw Jon under the bus during her Q&A session. She is disgusting. At least TLC showed clips of past episodes, where it is plain for all to see what kind of person Kate really is. No regrets, Kate? You are truly beyond redemption.

    A media whore talking about a media whore talking about a media whore. Do I have it right?

    I am sure Jon was called to make a comment and his comments were well said and to the point. I am interested in hearing what the father of these kids have to say anyways… I watched the show and he was always so down to earth and nurturing towards the kids. He was the one teaching them to ride bikes, ski, and really just have fun. I hope he still teaching those skills to his kids. Best of luck to both Jon and Kate and hope they can work on fixing their relationships to co-parent these beautiful kids. It will be nice to be able to do all of that without the cameras.

    Blah Blah Blah….. So now that she's unemployed, Jon should get ready for higher child support payments. And of those who criticized this lady's method of earning money, get ready to have your taxes supplement for this family because her "future' salary as a nurse won't be enough.

    He doesn't give a damn about the kids being in the spotlight. He's just happy that Kate is not earning all that money without him and is now going to have to get a job. They're both losers.



  9. 9

    Hollywood — make and break families so you can all make a few bucks off of the drama. Disgusting. You who produce these shows ought to be ashamed. How soon the public ets sick of this crap. But that's OK, your pockets are already lined with the ridiculousness of it.



  10. 10

    Why are you bashing this guy? You're so lame.



  11. 11

    Okay, so maybe it's time the kids had a more private life, but, please, keep Kate in the spotlight. I like her–and they need the $. Protect the kids; let her go out and hunt!



  12. 12

    Why do you say "this is his last chance to be relevant" ?
    Are you saying only people in the spotlight are relevant?
    How obnoxious is that!!!



  13. 13

    Perez what did you expect? That he not say anything at all? He has done an amazing job getting his shit together and its a shame we cant say the same about Khatzilla. It's a shame that these kids will never get their childhood back.

    JON GOSSELIN'S PICTURE LOOKS LIKE A BROKE DOWN FUCKING BLOW FISH

    Mario, you don't have kids, so your comments about no disruption in the kids lives are irrelevant. You are an idiot, hopefully nobody ever adopts a child to your self centered ass.



  16. 16

    Look for Kate in the nearest WIC line.



  17. 17

    Of course he'd be asked about it. He's the father of 90% of the cast! He's done a pretty good job of laying low since he remarried - something I doubt Kate will ever do. I give him credit for making his comments short. It wasnt Creepy Kate's show - it was a show about THEIR children. As their father, Im sure he has an opinion about his children being relieved from duty as his ex-wife's puppets.

    Pressures on now for him to keep up the court ordered support, Kate unemployed and all.

    I have also always been on Jon's side. I use to watch the show back when it first was on, and he always came across as a good father, but seemed miserable with the way Kate treated him, and I also got the impression he didn't like the cameras. As the show progressed he became more broken, and shell like. He wasn't happy, it was obvious. The man isn't perfect, and his behavior after the divorce wasn't always ideal, but I think it is unfair to vilify him alone. I think he has maintained consistent in his stance that the tv show was an unhealthy environment for his children, and that he wanted the show to end. KATE is clearly the one who pushed for the show, who wanted the fame, and let it continue on even after all the damage to her personal life.

    Jon kept quiet long enough..it's about time the man has a voice. His ex wife belittled him on national TV every chance she got..If she thought it made her look good…Boy was she wrong ! That was her demize. The witch burried herself..GOOD-BYE Kate !!!GOOD RIDDENS!!

    I watched their show when they were still together & I liked it. There were relateable issues all families struggle with but when Kate would constantly berate Jon & bully him around constantly I could no longer relate to this control freak. Then came the surgeries & the sense of entitlement & the craving for paparazzi & the crocodile tears begging for sympathy so that viewers will be forgiving & throw her & her poor deprived children a bone. I hate everything that monster stands for. I'm happy her show is cancelled but beware bc she is not going to hive up that easy…my guess is that she will start a show about her dating. She will get a new opportunity to play a heartbroken victim…all for ratings of course. Please Kate give up your dream of owning a handprint in Hollywood and try to just be a mother to your kids. And I pray for their sake that their father carries good health insurance for their future psychiatrist visits. I'm team Jon & applaud him for saving himself. He's had way more class that Kate all along
