“I felt really bad. I mean, I didn’t care too much for Kate or whatever, but I felt really bad for [13-year-old twins] Mady and Cara because I love them and they’re just put in this situation. It was like deer in the headlights. It just kind of proves my point of Kate bringing the kids out instead of her just sort of doing it herself. It all blew up in everyone’s face and I feel horrible for my children because now they’re going to have to deal with the public. By body language they were probably like, ‘What’s the moral thing to do and what does my mom want me to do?’ They were torn and they just shutdown. It was just a classic case of being silent. You get to a point where you are like, ‘I don’t know who to please. Do I please myself or do I please my parents — or my mother? [When asked if the twins were manipulated] In my heart that’s what I believe, that’s how I feel. Can I prove it? I can’t prove it, but you can’t take my feelings away from me. I feel that way.”
It’s been a few years since anyone cared about “Jon & Kate Plus Eight,” despite Kate Gosselin’s impassioned effort to shove herself and her children in the spotlight. After Kate dragged the couple’s twin daughters on “The Today Show” yesterday [second item] to parrot how ‘normal’ they are and both girls, tellingly, clammed the fuck up, Kate’s ex Jon Gosselin has actually emerged as the saner parent. Jeez, these poor kids. Can’t they just have a truly normal life and get off our TVs? (I’m sure Jon thrilled to see his ex-wife humiliated on live TV, though.) [US Weekly] [Photo: WENN]
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 educationally. Great. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people.” Keep reading »
I’m sorry to burden you with bad news just a few hours after you return to the office from the three-day weekend, but alas … Jon Gosselin is writing a book. The tome will be called A Slice of Life: Jon Gosselin’s Story, and it’ll be co-written by Jon’s life coach, Sylvia Lafair. “The book is about having eight kids all at once when he was under the age of 30,” explains Lafair. “It includes some of the lessons that Jon has been learning with helpful hints on how he is working to reframe his relationship with his family including his two brothers and his mother. It also explores how the death of his father affected him.” Keep reading »
Maybe it’s just me, but I always thought the point of impersonating someone was because they are really, really cool. Yet a dentist from New York has allegedly chosen to imitate Jon Gosselin by wearing Ed Hardy t-shirts and smoking like a chimney. The dude has been hitting up clubs all over Atlantic City and is using his bogus celeb status to score with the ladies. I’m a little upset, not because the guy is rumored to be unbalanced, but because the only thing worse than one Jon Gosselin is two. [RadarOnline.com]
Oh, wait, this isn’t the first time a really lame celeb has been impersonated by a total creeper. After the jump, some other wannabes who made us run screaming. Keep reading »
