Though it very well should be a little too late to be seeking sympathy from the masses, Jon Gosselin of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus Eight— who has been TOOLing it up everywhere these days — wants it, wants it bad. And he’s not afraid to boo-hoo his way further into tool-dom to get it either.
He will be appearing on ABC’s Primetime September 8th where he too will detail the reasons for the demise of his 10 year relationship to Kate Gosselin. (Kate previously appeared on the Today Show with her side of things.)
He says that he was taking “a lot of abuse” from Kate and complains extensively that while she was out promoting her book and the show (that they both share the bill on mind you) poor little A+-for-no-effort father was at home taking care of the kids. Boo hoo.
He also talks about the manly man incident when the cops were called to their Pennsylvania home. Apparently, he wouldn’t let Kate in the gate because he wanted to ostensibly spend more time with his kids. The cops were called and Jon gloats that Kate’s waterworks didn’t well…work and she had to leave.
File under: Can this guy get any more annoying? Um, I guess. One more Ed Hardy ill-fitting shirt or psedu-celeb trip to Vegas or torrid story of him using his fame from a show about him and his 8 kids to get chicks and I think I will just barf. Why would any woman give this man the time of day!

I am so over the coverage of this train-wreck of a family but, here I go anyway: seems tough-as-nails Kate Gosselin breaks her silence on the Today Show with Meredith Vieira.
For the first time, Kate speaks candidly — including admitting that she still has love for her womanizing, pot-belly, media-whore of a soon-to-be-ex-husband Jon Gosselin (well, at least, the Jon she once knew!) She also confesses she still keeps her wedding ring on so that the kids won’t be upset when she didn’t have on the “married-to-daddy ring”.
The stars of Jon & Kate Plus Eight have been amid a media storm ever since the rumblings of there being “trouble in paradise”. Truth is, most viewers could see their foundation fraying from early into the first season.
Kate has been called everything from a ball-buster to a crazie but quickly Jon has become the person-to-hate, as he hangs out with the likes of Michael Lohan (the consummate father-opportunist); has trysts with numerous women; continues to subject the viewing public to his penchant for donning fashions by Ed Hardy. The latter I think is the biggest offense of them all!
This all conspires to be a hot I-want-to-call-child-services mess. There is not only one child amid all of this drama; there are EIGHT! Ugh. Come on, guys, get your selfish heads out your asses and think about the kids!
And if I see one more installment of Jon neglecting his children in the background while he panders to whatever media outlet is camped outside his door, I am going to throw up. At least, Kate is being a bit more subtle about it all!
File under: was it worth it, guys?!?!
