Reality television is contrived and staged? We never would've believed it!
Jon Gosselin shocked the world last week when he went on an expletive laced rant against his ex Kate Gosselin.
The whole thing was recorded on VH1's Couples Therapy including one part where Jon apparently called up Kate and yelled at her before later saying:
“It’s narcissistic, bullsh*t behavior. And she can go out and talk about the kids anytime she wants! She can tweet and have a f**kin’ website dedicated to them, every f**kin’ book she’s ever put out because she wants to keep being on television which is never gonna f**kin’ happen, so she can f**kin’ die."
But one source insists that not only was the entire thing staged, but the phone call was also BS. Jon and Kate apparently haven't spoken on the phone in years!
Here's what the source said:
“Kate never talked to Jon on the phone during his Couples Therapy tryst. In fact, Jon and Kate haven’t actually spoken on the phone in years; they just text. But either way, the entire scene with Jon exploding and going off on Kate was just something he orchestrated to make himself relevant on the show and make sure he got screen time."
The source goes on to say how the reality show was supposed to feature Jon's relationship with Liz Jannetta, and yet Jon has instead been entirely focused on Kate. For whatever reason that is! The source said:
“The whole point of Jon being on the show is to work on his relationship with Liz Jannetta. But instead, he’s using it as a platform to trash Kate. Which you almost can’t fault him since that’s basically what reality TV is these days.”
Whatever the case may be - there's no doubt that Jon's rant garnered a lot of attention. Which we assume is definitely a win for VH1. Whether that's a win for Jon Gosselin, as well, remains to be seen!
