Jon Gosselin

Jon and Kate Gosselin, of the infamous series “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” still make headlines with their vicious legal battles. We rarely hear much, though, about the kid that got them on TV in the first place. Thirteen-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 9-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Alexis, Collin, Leah, Aaden and Joel grew up with camera crews in their home from 2007 to 2011. When Jon spoke with Oprah Winfrey Sunday night on her series “Where Are They Now,” he admitted to what viewers had long suspected — growing up as a pint-sized celebrities impacted his children’s sense of character.

“Yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationallyGreat. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people.” Keep reading »

Casual racism is really having a moment these days. The next pseudo-celeb to stick their foot in their mouth is Kate Gosselin, of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ fame. Take a gander at this picture. It’s confusing, I know, so let me break it down for you. Kate Gosselin, white woman, mother of eight lovely multi-racial children, is wearing a plastic geisha wig and pulling her eyes back in the manner of playground idiots since time immemorial. What gives, Kate? Maybe she felt her star slipping, and, seeing the “success” Paula Deen is having a of late, was inspired to attempt a curated controversy. Maybe she’s just not the brightest star in the sky. Naturally, the brouhaha she created necessitated a response, so Gosselin took to her personal blog with a response, writing:

Evidently, a fan sent [the wig] for me to wear so that I too could “be Asian” like the rest of my family. At that time, a common topic of our show was “everybody’s Asian” — except for mommy, so a thoughtful fan figured she’d help me look Asian too! It’s normal to talk about and even “exaggerate” the feature differences between family members of a biracial family as they are noticed by curious growing children within the family. These types of discoveries and at home discussions are a normal part of being a loving accepting biracial family and it does not make any of us prejudice!

Quotable: Jon And Kate Sign Off (For Good, We Hope)

Well, here’s a big reason to give thanks this week: Last night TLC aired the final episode of “Jon and Kate Plus 8.” Holla! In it, both Kate and Jon individually spoke directly into the camera about ife as a single parent and what they had to say was markedly different. For his part, Jon spoke about his bachelor pad in Manhattan, saying:

“Although I live there, it’s not like I’m at my house. Now it’s like I have a place to go. When I get sick of the city and all the press and the media, I cross the [George Washington Bridge], I go back to my country place and I can just chill. I’ve got the best of both worlds right now.”

Jon And Kate Continue Their Pity Party Tour


Kate Gosselin, whose hair keeps getting bigger and waistline continues to shrink, sat down with “Today”‘s Natalie Morales for a one-hour interview set to air tonight on TLC. The “Today” Show aired a few minutes of the interview this morning, during their daily dose of Gosselin. We learned that Kate is still sad and Jon, who spoke out in a New York City synagogue last night with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a spiritual adviser to the stars, “is sorry” for his bad-boy behavior in the months since he and Kate announced their divorce. He explains: “It’s hard for a man to stay home for two years and change diapers and make meals and deal with, like, doctors appointments and all the stuff you expect your wife to do.” So, naturally, when he got a taste of freedom, he had to, you know, do what a man has to do — neglect his kids and boink 22-year-olds!

The above clip aired on “Good Morning America” earlier, with Hailey crying that Jon is abusing her by taking out his frustrations on her:

“He’ll call me and take his anger out on me. He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused. I cry and say, ‘Why are you so mean to me?’ He takes it out on me.”

Quote Of The Day: Kate Gosselin Wants To Be In The Movies

“I’ve done enough years on TV that I feel like it’s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be. I’d love to be in a movie at some point, I’d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.”

— Kate Gosselin answered “any and all reasonable questions” on last night’s episode of “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” When a viewer asked if she wanted to ever marry again, Kate replied:

“To be honest, I don’t know. I really don’t want to be married again, but I don’t want to be alone. The alone-ness is really alone.”

TLC Looking To Sue The Ed Hardy Pants Off Jon Gosselin

How, how, have Jon and Kate Gosselin managed to milk a disintegrating marriage into months worth of drama that just won’t leave us alone? The latest in the debacle: TLC is suing Jon, saying that he’s used his concerns over his kidlets to wiggle out of his contract with the network. Their version of the story goes like this: They tried to contact Jon to let him know their intentions to change the show from “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ to simply “Kate Plus 8,” but were unable to reach him before making the public announcement. The day the news broke, the production company received a call from Jon’s lawyer, giving them an hour to release him from his contractual agreement. When they refused, he went public saying that he thought filming the show through the divorce was detrimental to his kids’ health and filed paperwork barring filming from continuing. Basically, he gave them the ultimate middle finger. Keep reading »

Happy birthday, girls! Last night Jon Gosselin appeared on yet another show, this time Entertainment Tonight, with some choice words for his estranged wife (clip above).

Nancy Grace Puts Jon Gosselin In His Place

Jon Gosselin just got served — and not by soon-to-be ex-wife Kate! The reality TV dad spent the weekend reportedly ransacking the couple’s joint bank account (he allegedly took $200,000, leaving Kate and the kids with a mere $1,000), and on Monday he brought his sideshow to “The Insider.” But he met his match in Nancy Grace because the “HLN” host would have none of it. Watch the video above as she rips him a new one, calling him out for his egotism and his dalliances with younger women. Keep reading »
