Jon Gosselin gets a real job – then quits!

That was fast!

Jon Gosselin has been preaching for quite some time that he wanted to quit the public life – for a more regular, normal life. Instead of being paid to appear on TV, he yearned for a 9-5 job. Life & Style reported yesterday that Jon had left the public eye for good – and had taken a regular 9-5 job in marketing.

But – he wasn’t a fan of “normal”, Jon has already handed in his resignation. reports that Gosselin has already left the office for good — in part because of the kids. “It involved too much travel for him,” says a source. “[Jon] needed to be near his eight kids, that’s why it didn’t work out.”

Whatever will he do?

Jon Gosselin unloads the kids

Ex-husband to the now famous Kate Gosselin and father of their 8 children, Jon Gosselin, unloads the kids out of his van in Reading, Pennsylvania on November 29th, 2010.

Reportedly, even though Jon and his girlfriend Ellen Ross are still going strong, Kate still has no intention on meeting her. I guess she just wants to wait to see if this one will last…hmm?

Hollywood News reports:

Despite the fact that Ross is definitely in Kate’s children’s lives, the two women have yet to meet face-to-face, states Kate is reportedly fine with the situation so long as Ross treats the children well.

Jon has reportedly straightened out his life a bit since Ross came into the picture, so maybe Kate is just happy to have an easier situation to deal with now.

Do you think she’s right in waiting?

Two of the Gosselin kids have been expelled from school!

Six-year-old Collin and Alexis Gosselin, two of the famous sextuplets of reality stars Kate and Jon Gosselin, were expelled from school in Pennsylvania, according to the New York Post.

The children “fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids,” a source close to the family told the magazine. “The things they are saying are not words they should know.”

Maybe that’s not surprising, given the acrimony that reportedly has existed between the children’s now-divorced parents.

And Collin and Alexis may not be the only members of the famous brood having a hard time. Other young Gosselins have experienced “rage issues” linked to filming of their reality series, the magazine reported. (more…)

Jon Gosselin’s (bitter) open letter

John Gosselin posted this open letter on his Twitter just a few minutes ago. In it, he goes on and on about wanting to get his kids off of TV, and how broke he is.

I’m not sure if I believe him, he has seemed like such a douche in the past. Has he turned over a new leaf? Does he really want what’s best for his kids? The impression I got from the letter was he’s a bit miffed that Kate Gosselin is making money off the kids – and he’s not. Kate is busy filming Kate Plus 8 for TLC, and Jon is busy with – nothing. Does he really want his kids off TV, or does he just want to make money off them like their mom does?

As you may or may not be aware, I have been working for some time to remove my children from television. I do not believe being on TV is beneficial to any of them. They are no longer toddlers that are oblivious to what is going on around them. They are now six and ten, in school and desperately in need of a normal life.

Each of them has experienced negative effects of having their lives so public. Some are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues. My goal for my children is for them to have a normal childhood, and gain back their much deserved privacy. This is not about money, this is about my children. No amount of money is worth the price my children are paying. You cannot put a price on childhood. Money comes and goes, but you only have one childhood.

For those questions about money and support, I can say I am supporting my children to the best of my ability. All parties involved know the truth about this. I am and have been actively seeking employment. I have been barred from accepting entertainment deals that would generate income for my family due to contractual obligations. I am also actively looking for a job outside of the entertainment industry and so far, have not secured a position. In the mean time, I have been focusing on spending time with my children and providing a safe, stable, normal and private environment for them!

On October 13, 2010, I went to court to act in the best interest of my children- to remove them from television. The judge respectfully denied my plea, and granted filming rights to their mother. I honor the judge’s decision, but I do not support it. I will not stop fighting to remove my children from television. It is not a child’s job to support themselves, or a lifestyle, they need to be kids. I would like to apologize to my friends, family, and especially my children for not taking a stand earlier in my life and not questioning my decisions to have our lives documented and displayed. I will have to answer to my children for the rest of my life. I will have to live with this guilt the rest of my life. I am truly sorry!

You read it – what do you think?
