Words Of Reason From Jon Gosselin

| Filed under: The GosselinsReality TV

Jon Gosselin Kate Gosselin Reality TV Career

Well who woulda thunk it!

Jon Gosselin is actually saying something wise these days.

We guess his Christian Audigier crisis is over…

After his ex-wife, Kate Gosselin, expressed her concern for her family's future after her reality shows' cancellation, Jon basically said suck it up.

In an interview, Jon blatantly says:

Reality TV is not a career. [She should] get to back to a normal life, a simple life. Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously, there are families out there that have several kids – people work normal jobs, and things work out. I go to work every day and provide for my family. I spend time with my kids – spend time on the weekends and enjoy a normal lifestyle.

This is true, it's totally possible for Kate to get back to a normal life.

We're impressed to see him grow so much, but to be fair, he was a big reason why she threw herself into her own show in the first place.

But like he says, everything WILL work out now. Good luck!

    Everyone put Kate on a pedestal and put John down. No one must remember how she belittled him on national tv in front of millions and he just took it until one day he just said to hell with it. She is the fame whore. She loves the attention, the makeup and hair ppl, the stylists, housekeepers, drivers, etc. etc. Everyone at her beckon call. Oh I forgot about her "bodyguard". Poor thing can't afford any of that anymore. Oh well, most hard working Americans can't either. There is a family down the road from us that has 6 kids. Very well behaved and both parents work and both parents participate in everything together as a family. Why can't Kate get a job ? A real job ? Answer is cuz she doesn't want to. She wants the fame. Period. She is a disgusting person and mother.

    Isn't she a nurse? They make good coin, her concern isn't so much for their future, it's that she won't be rich and famous anymore. I'm using air quotes for famous.



  3. 3

    Damn he is starting to seem like the more sensible one out of the two.

    Re: buggadaboo

    Agreed.

    Yeah he fell off the edge when getting divorced - He is allowed to make mistakes, everyone is… Kate epitomizes the behavior that people who are the most internally out of control are the most controlling of others, glad he came out on the other slide of that dysfunctional mess. At least he and his children will have 50% of a normal life…

    Belittle Jon Gosselin? To late. Besides you try and descipline all those children including the large man child who coulndnt think past his donation to Kate. They couldn't do the research,to figure out parenting means you really have to actually think about someone other than yourself!



  7. 7

    Jon is the voice of reason who would have thunk it? Well ANYONE who watched the first few seasons and the HORRIBLE way she treated him. He is 100 percent right. Reality TV is NOT a career. She is so delusional that she cant even see straight. Good for you Jon you came out of this mess pretty good.



  8. 8

    Jon got a raw deal. He is a young guy who was manipulated by this insane control freak. Sure, he flipped for a while, got his head all twisted up with fame, but a true measure of character is the fact that he got his act together and is actually doing something genuine and solid for his kids. AWAY from the cameras. I saw this show from day one and could have predicted this would happen yet society sided with Kate. Really? She was horrid to him, to everyone around her. Now even TLC is turning on her and showing her actually being her true self! Those kids would fair so much better if he were the primary parent.

    My Grandma raised 8 kids while my grandfather worked but it was really hard for her. It was a full-time, constant job (she admits she would burst into tears randomly). It sounds like he would want Kate to have a full time job while also caring for the children. He doesn't have to deal with the day to day life he just plays with them on the weekends. I'm a little sick of some men thinking that all they have to do is work and nothing else but they expect their women to work full time and take care of the household full time. Lazy.



  10. 10

    This is the man who tried to get Divorced Dad's Club on the air. If he had his own reality show, he wouldn't say that.



  11. 11

    if Kate goes back to nursing then John better be prepared to take care of the kids when she works, as well as holding down a full time job and maybe getting a part time job as well because child support for 8 kids is a lot
    and when Kate isn't working - of course she'll be caring for the kids
    John got off easy with child care- mostly just enjoying his daddy time
    now he'll have to step it up big time at the sacrifice of his personal life, the way Kate has sacrificed her personal/dating etc. life



  12. 12

    What they need to do is sell that expensive mansion they bought and can't afford anymore, buy something sensible like a double wide trailer right down the block from Jon's double wide. Get back to a full time job, work opposite hours from her ex and share custody of the children that they chose to have. Sound stupid? No it is what most parents do to survive.

    Question. What happened to the kids money? Did she blow thru that yet? Didn't a judge force her to separate all the money into separate accounts so the kids have their $$$?



  13. 13

    I love people saying they would be abusive too if they had all those kids. Kate always has help that she belittles and doesn't pay until they quit. Her daughter Maddie was having behavior problems long before the litter came along. Jon is a scumbag but Kate is raising kids that got thrown out of kindergarten.



  14. 14

    Huh I never thought I would side with Jon.. but he's tottally right. He has gone back to work and is acting like a normal person, while she's over here bitching about losing her reality show and having to manage her money better instead of spending it on lavished trips and ridiculous weaves.



  15. 15

    Oh please Jon spare me the BS. Hopefully your job of installing solar panels on a roof can pay the new higher rate of child support coming your way. Yes..she can make a decent earning as a nurse..but shifts are a minimum 12 hours a day..so what happens with the kids in the meantime? Kate will still be criticized…she can't win.



  16. 16

    Re: buggadaboo – I am not a Kate fan…however, to attack her only when this scumbag was along for the $$$ ride as well is not right…He was just FINE with it all when he was getting the attention and $$$, but interesting how critical he has become since his lame-o 15 minutes of fame are over….Open your eyes.



  17. 17

    Re: tvmaven – Again, stop blaming kate….John asked her to marry him (we know he saw signs of how she treated him early on) and then chose to have children with her….HE made his choices….RAW DEAL? PLEASE!!! People need to take responsibility to their actions and choices in this world…there is waaaaay too much of not doing so and blaming others….HE went into this with his eyes wide open!!! He is an insecure, weak man…cannot blame that on Kate…he was that way before she met him.



  18. 18

    Kate doesnt want a "normal" life. she wants the attention. Kate wont go back to nursing. i wouldnt be shocked at all if her family hit rock bottom before she actually went back to a real job.



  19. 19

    Re: xoxo_anonymous
    Agreed :)
    I would HATE to have her as my or a family member's nurse…I shudder to think about it!



  20. 20

    I wonder how many people here would have a reality show if they could, and would take all the money and free trips that come along with it? I'm pretty suuuuuuure… everyone.



  21. 21

    I always said he was the sane one.

  22. @v@ says – reply to this

    She should go back to whatever kind of life she prefers. If HE wants a 'normal' life, a 'simple' life, then that's what HE needs to do. Then he should shut his mouth publicly and support whatever decision she comes up with for HER life.
