What a messss.
Jon Gosselin has really been alienated during his divorce, which is not a bad thing because he seems to be a tremendous douche, but it also seems sad to me, because it does still seem like he wants more contact with his kids. During his split with Kate Gosselin, he had numerous girlfriends, including various babysitters to his children (UGH), the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon, a Star Magazine writer (who went to hookup and have children with Jon’s onetime buddy, the very abusive Michael Lohan), and coeds. In fact, it seems weird that he even got so many women to actually WANT to see him naked. But the heart want what the heart wants, and sometimes that’s sad sack Jon Gosselin.
So in an interview when Kate says that he changed overnight I believe her. That doesn’t mean I find her blameless though, seeing as I think around that time she was sleeping with the family’s married bodyguard? Didn’t she make Jon sleep above the garage, leading him to assume they were separated? Confusing. And, gross. But here’s Kate:
The relationship’s dissolution was still a shock to Kate, who tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that her ex-husband transformed suddenly.
“I really would have thought he’d have been here for the long haul,” Kate says. “The weirdest thing is that overnight he became a different person.”
Kate, 41, says Jon began buying motorcycles and cars, and staying out late – despite having eight young kids – including sextuplets – at home.
“People closest to me thought I was crazy and making it up,” Kate says now. “When they saw it for themselves, they were like, ‘Whoa.’ They saw the proof – and then I saw all the letters from women saying, ‘I’ve been there, too.’
I’m sure that was super traumatic. BUT- her kids only get one father and instead of realizing that she pushed him out, making sure that she could keep the children in the media against Jon’s wishes. And those are the real victims here- the kids. Who are trapped between their parents and their parents’ mistakes. Sad.
