The Real Reason Jon Gosselin Wants His Own TV Show

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is worried he’s going to have to get a real job if he loses all his money in the divorce

Jon GosselinIt’s not bad being a reality TV star. You don’t have to have any discernable talent, yet you get paid more than most people make in a year to be followed around by a couple of TV cameras and a guy swinging a boom microphone. It beats having a real job, right Jon Gosselin?

The star of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 realizes that viewers might not be as interested in his family now that he and wife Kate are getting a divorce, so he’s trying hard to get a show of his own ASAP.

“Jon wants easy money now that he’s gotten a taste of celebrity. He doesn’t want to go back to an everyday job,” says an insider. “He’s out to cook up a new reality TV deal or even his own book deal. Now that they are divorcing, he has to start generating a new income that does not involve Kate.”

The 32-year-old, who’s been seen spending money like water in the wake of his split with frugal Kate, is concerned that he’s going to end up with nothing in the divorce settlement.

“He’s worried that Kate will end up with all of their money,” the insider says. “Plus, he also knows that he has eight children and his money will have to support them for the next 15-plus years. Jon knows how strong-willed Kate can be and he wants to make sure that he doesn’t ever have to rely on her again for his money.”

  1. “He feels as if Kate held him back and now he can enjoy his life.”

    Guess what, it wasn’t Kate holding him back — it was his EIGHT FREAKING CHILDREN!!! Jon, GROW UP! He’s going to miss out on so much of those kids’ lives because of his selfishness. I’m starting to like Kate more.

  2. I hope Jon gets buried in child support. It was just so easy for him to say “I quit” and walk away from his large family. Imagine if Kate did that? He would be lost and incompetent.

  3. It seems to me that fame hit these people with a hard blow.
    Jon? Well, look at him… Ed Hardy, big diamond ear rings, the spiked hair. He’s a total douche bag! Not to mention the TWO SEAT car he purchased and the TWO bedroom apartment! I mean what is he trying to be a teenager again?!
    And Kate isn’t any better Have you seen the show? She tries to be this perfect kid raiser and was TOTALLY rude controlling to Jon.
    God, these people make me so mad!!!

  4. What a douchebag!! When the marriage started to unravel, I was on Jon’s side because TLC did such a great job editing Kate & making her out to be the raving maniac we’ve seen for 4+ yrs. Personally, I will not be watching J & K + 8, nor any show that Jon may get. I just feel for those 8 adorable kids. KATE, CUT THE TLC CORD!! GIVE YOUR KIDS A NORMAL LIFE W/O CAMERAS!!

  5. I WAS FEELING SORRY FOR JON IN THE BEGINNING. I NOW FEEL I LIKE KATE MORE(DIDN’T USE TO0) I FELT SORRY FOR THE TWERT,THE WAY KATE BOSSED HIM AROUND.I SEE NOW HOW NECESSARY IT WAS FOR HER TO TAKE THE ROLE OF SOMEONE WHO TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER SHARE OF LIFE. HE IS SUCH A DOUCHE BAG!!!!!KEEP THE SHOW GOING KATE, I AM ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST SUPPORTERS.SO MUCH LOVE, RESPECT, AND GOOD LUCK FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU’S. SUCK A DUCK JON!!!

  6. BOYCOTT all websites, including this one, that feature Jon Gosselin, the nobody now and wasn’t much before. As long as he gets coverage, he’ll get money from someone who thinks anyone is interested in him. Let him sink into the obscurity he deserves!

    I C0MPLETLY AGREE WITH Y0U!
