In case you’re wondering whatever happened to Jon Gosselin after he fell off the face of the earth since he was no longer legally obligated to stick it into an entitled harpy: It turns out, a little obscurity helped him remember how to not be a terrible person. In an interview with RumorFix, Jon told Kate Gosselin to stop freaking out about having her show canceled and no longer having everything she wanted handed to her on a silver platter and to just get a real job so that she could provide for her kids like a normal, non-celebrity-bitch mom.
Jon, who doesn’t speak to the former star of Kate Plus 8, has some surprisingly stinging words for America’s most famous mom: “Reality TV is not a career. Get back to a normal life — a simple life. Provide for your family.”
And what if the Dancing with the Stars alum has to unload her huge farm home in Pennsylvania? Jon has absolutely no sympathy, “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.”
Jon adds that he likes his life now that he’s out of the limelight. “I go to work every day and provide for my family,” he tells us. “I spend time with my kids – spend time on the weekends. I spend time with the girlfriend I’ve had for over a year now. And enjoy a normal lifestyle.”
Well, I think this kind of proves a couple pet theories of mine: That #1, Jon Gosselin never wanted to be on TV in the first place and that the show was basically Kate’s idea and #2, that if you force normally sane people to be on reality TV, they will invariably become completely insane. Seriously, remember when Shelley first showed up on Big Brother as the moral center of the show and then slowly devolved to the point where she’d lie about how the sky was red? Exactly. Reality TV makes people crazy.
