Jon Gosselin - Jon Gosselin Tells Kate: I Was Passive Aggressive

Jon Gosselin has finally apologized to his former wife Kate Gosselin, three years after the pair made headlines with a messy and acrimonious divorce. Jon tells People magazine that he and Kate are getting along now, and that he's sorry for the way he behaved.
The couple rose to fame with reality show 'Jon and Kate Plus 8', which profiled the pair as they raised their family of sextuplets and twins. However, they divorced in June 2009, with Kate remaining in Pennsylvania with the children. After dating a "steady stream of women" following the split, Gosslin moved back to the state in 2011 and recently took a job as director of sales and promotions for Gameface Int. Reflecting on the couple's divorce, Jon admitted, "I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me.I was passive-aggressive.Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating". Nowadays, Jon says things are different, saying, "I'll call [Kate] up and say, 'Mady's sick. What do I do?' And she'll tell me.She's a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles". Gosselin says he would consider a return to the entertainment business, but only for the right deal. He added, "I used to talk to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Michael Jackson's rabbi) a lot when I lived in New York.He said, 'There are two things you can do with your fame - sell out or take it and use it for good.' I didn't grasp that at the time".
Last year, Tlc announced that 'Kate Plus 8' - the reality show without Jon - would not be returning. It aired its final episode on September 12, 2011.

Gosselin Twins Refuse to Answer How Their Lives Have Been Affected by Reality TV 4027337 News

Kate Gosselin may have been betrayed by her twin daughters Thursday morning (January 16), and they didn't say a word.

Kate GosselinKate Gosselin appears on 'Extra'

Gosselin, Cara and Mady appeared on The Today Show with Savannah Guthrie to talk about their lives growing up in the public eye on Jon & Kate Plus 8. They experienced their parents' divorce, growing up with six siblings, and both her parent's antics in the media.

They recently interviewed with People about their "normal" lives, and they were supposed to elaborate on that interview, according to CNN.

Guthrie asked the twins about how their family was doing since Kate Plus 8 wrapped, and she answered, "um"… and then nothing.

"Mady, your words," Kate Gosselin said. "It's your chance. Spit it out."

Guthrie tried Cara next, but she also refused to answer the question.

"This is their chance to talk, this is the most wordless I've heard them all morning," Kate told Guthrie. "I don't want to speak for them."

Mady finally said something, after more moments of very uncomfortable silence.

"A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us," she said. "But it's only really helped."

Jon and Kate Gosselin's sextuplets are now nine years old, and the twins seemed to be more forthcoming with People — although that's questionable now that they pretty much refused to answer those questions on live TV.

"People expect us to be damaged," Cara said in the interview.

Mady added, "think we're supposed to be so messed up, like, 'Ooh, the poor Gosselin kids, they're going to be scarred for life, waaaaah.' Here's the big news: We're not messed up."

"It's so false," Cara said. "We're fine. We're better than ever, actually."

Former Reality Star Jon Gosselin Tells Wendy Williams That He Had A Vasectomy 4024837 News

Jon Gosselin, former star of his own reality show 'Jon & Kate Plus 8', has admitted to having a vasectomy.

The 36 year-old made the revelation during an appearance on 'The Wendy Williams Show', meaning he will not be having any more children.

Thank god!

Gosselin opened up to the host about his personal life, his constant battle with ex-wife Kate Gosselin, and the going through the medical procedure.

When speaking about himself and current girlfriend, Liz Jannetta, he said, "We can't have more kids. Yeah, I'm fixed."

Jon and his ex-wife have been at each other's throats in the past several years, but the father of eight did say that Kate has dropped the lawsuit against him for allegedly hacking into her computer.

The allegations claimed that the hacking was in order to find out detailed information about Kate's tell-all autobiography 'Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World'.

"That lawsuit is over," Jon said to Wendy. "She dismissed the case. I guess I proved her wrong or she didn't want to continue down that road."

"But Wendy, if I could do those things, I wouldn't be sitting here now. I'd be working for the NSA."

Mr Gosselin, whose reality show ended in 2011 after airing on TLC for four years, does not want any of his children appearing on television again, and isn't afraid to get vocal about it.

"I'll fight it," he said. "I don't need the money, I'll just go to work. Because I fought so hard to get my kids off of television."

"It didn't work in civil court, it didn't work with TLC, it didn't work with anyone so I had to go to family court and try and stop it."

Adding, "My kids go to private school. They also have trusts. They have education trusts. They have other trusts. Kate and I put 80 percent of the gross of the income in a trust for three years for them. They're fine."

The pair share twin daughters Cara and Madelyn (13), and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel (9).

Jon Gosselin Wields Gun And Fires Shots At Paparazzi 3875876 News

When the news that former reality star Jon Gosselin had lost everything and was now living in a cabin in the woods, earning a living waiting on tables, there was obviously going to be renewed interest in him. This meant an influx of paparazzi reintroduced into his life, a reintroduction that Gosselin apparently wanted no part of whatsoever.

According to a report from TMZ - who have photos of Jon brandishing a gun at the alleged scene - the father of eight made sure that a trailing photographer wasn't going to carry on following him, as he apparently pulled out his gun and threatened the female pap. It all happened on Friday, 20 September, in Beckersville, Pennsylvania, when the freelance photographer decided to wait outside Gosselin's work until he finished, and then followed him home in a bid to catch some photos of the new dwellings. What she got was something much more exciting, and life-threatening.

The photographer confessed that she followed him all the way into a rural part of the town, leaving the main road and joining a dirt path, one that she assumed was a public road. It wasn't, and Gosselin exercised all his rights when he finally clocked on to the now-trespassing photographer. When the unnamed photographer began snapping away, Gosselin allegedly span his car around and drove aggressively towards her, exiting his vehicle and then pulling a gun from the back of his trousers.

She continued, saying that Jon started yelling at her for trespassing, and then fired a warning shot, at which point the paparazzo turned around and fled. Apparently, Jon then got back in his car and followed her until she re-entered the main road. The photographer now claims that she will file a report with local police. Jon has been unavailable to comment on the supposed incident.

What Went Wrong With Jon Gosselin? Ex-Reality Star Found Penniless & Living Alone In The Woods 3874091 News

Jon Gosselin once had it all, fame, fortune, a devoted wife, his own reality series on TLC and a co-writing credit on a New York Times bestseller. Life has changed drastically for the one-time star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, as the days of champagne popping are now only reserved for the customers he serves in his new surroundings. But just how did he get to this position in the first place?

Jon Gosselin
Jon Gosselin has fallen almightily.

Having found fame through his eight children on the hit TLC show - now, Kate Plus 8 - alongside his ex-wife, Kate, Jon has swapped red carpets for red wine pouring, being forced into working in the service industry in order to make ends meet. His ex-wife and their many children may still live in comfort at their $1.3 million Pennsylvania home, whilst Jon is living alone in a cabin in the woods.

Blaming his almighty fall from fortune on his arduous divorce from Kate in 2009, Jon was spoken to for an Entertainment Tonight special, in which he revealed that his fame ended up being a hindrance on him when it came to finding work. He went on to say that after initially accepting his job as a waiter at the Black Dog, he felt apprehensive, but soon came to terms with being recognised whilst he waiting on tables, admitting, he had to take the job to make ends meet, after hitting rock bottom "like 20 times."

Kate Gosselin
Kate is suing her ex-husband for hacking into her computer and phone.

"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" the 36-year-old admitted. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well, it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me … they're like, 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"

In spite of being where he is now, Gosselin was keen to point out that he isn't struggling with his finances. Despite living alone with no TV or internet, Gosselin consistently insisted that money is not an issue and he isn't struggling to meet ends meet. This is just as well, because he will be facing even further financial woes should his court case against his ex-wife go against him. Jon is being sued by the mother of his eight children for allegedly hacking into her computer and phone in order to steal material from her tell-all 2012 publication Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.

Whether he's telling the truth or living in denial, things have changed drastically for Jon Gosselin to say the least. But in spite of all this, he insists that he has no regrets. He said, "I don't regret anything. You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today."

Jon Gosselin In Denial About Financial Difficulties? 3873823 News

Jon Gosselin, the former star of reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8, has discussed his relationship with his ex-wife Kate Gosselin in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Jon Gosselin first rose to fame when his wife gave birth to sextuplets in 2004 (they already had twins) and their family life was covered in a series of reality programmes, including Jon & Kate Plus 8. The show focussed on Jon and his then wife, Kate, as they brought up their eight children.

Jon Gosselin
Jon Gosselin is now waiting tables & claims he is not struggling for money.

The couple announced they were divorcing in 2009 after appearing together on five seasons of their reality show together. Kate Gosselin continued with the reality show which altered its title to Kate Plus 8. Although her former husband made the occasional appearance on the show, it seems their relationship has further deteriorated and they have no physical contact. Jon provided details of their frosty contact which consists of "text and email." He also declared "I don't have a relationship with Kate", emphasising "There is no relationship." According to Jon, his ex-wife is not even present when he collects their eight kids; as a "nanny comes out and I exchange the kids at her [Kate's] gate or at the bus stop."

Kate has primary custody of their eight children, despite Jon's frequent attempts to alter this in court. His last attempt was in 2010, when TMZ reported Jon's plan to take his former wife to court. Other reports, also in TMZ, suggest Gosselin was paying around $22 000 in child support every month. In this latest interview with ET, it seems Gosselin is unable to provide this as he is currently in a low paying job. Specifically, Jon is waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pennsylvania. However, Jon felt he should mention his contribution, stating he and his ex-wife "both support [their children] financially because she takes care of school and all that stuff, but I take care of the exact same things she takes care of, I buy their groceries. They have their own groceries at my house, their own bedrooms, their own stuff. It's doubled." 

Kate Gosselin
Kate Gosselin does not see her husband & their contact is via "text & email."

Jon is evidently struggling to keep his story straight as the last anyone heard of his living situation was that he was residing in a cabin in the woods, without access to the internet or TV. In the interview, Gosselin suggests his life as a reality star was considerably less profitable than it would appear. He maintained that he was not struggling money wise, despite stating that it was "impossible" for him to find a job. He further attempted to seemingly bluff, saying those who worked in hospitality jobs are not capable of "making ends meet." 

Despite his current financial predicament, Gosselin seems content with his life, claiming "I've hit rock bottom like 20 times, and then I just bounce back and go somewhere else."

Reality Star Kate Gosselin Files Hacking Lawsuit Against Ex-Husband Jon 3837244 News

Kate Gosselin of reality TV series Jon & Kate Plus 8 has filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband. The 38-year-old is famous for appearing on the Discovery Health reality show where she and her husband - later just Gosselin when the couple divorced- raise her sextuplets and one set of twins. Gosselin has accused her husband of wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft and invasion of privacy, according to a report on RadarOnline

Kate Gosselin
Kate Gosselin at a marathon in Las Vegas, 2012.

The couple married in 1999 and after they had sextuplets in 2004 appeared together on 5 seasons of the reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8. In 2009 the couple announced they were divorcing, the announcement was made on the show. Jon Gosselin chose not to appear in the continuation of the show, Kate Plus 8, in a major capacity. Kate Plus 8's final episode aired in 2011 and the family have appeared sporadically on other reality shows. 

The suit claims "after the couple was separated, Jon illegally hacked into Kate's email account and her phone and bank accounts." It continues to allege that Jon stole a hard drive which contained a number of his ex-wife's personal details and contacts. It also appears to have contained entries from Kate's diary. These extracts, although not authenicated by Gosselin, include references to spanking the children.

It seems Gosselin believes her ex-husband provided information which contributed to Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World. The suit states on this matter "Hoffman used the illegally acquired data to publish a defamatory book about Kate." 

The suit includes a number of allegations against Jon Gosselin such as his attempt to hide his illegal activity by claiming to have found the information whilst searching through his ex-wife's trash. As you do...

This may be confirmed by a number of text messages obtained by Radar. These text messages are, apparently, between Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend in 2009. A text dating from 14th October of the same year reads "I'll be back soon grabbing Kate's computer before she gets home. I need that hard drive." 

The lawsuit was filed in Gosselin's home state of Pennsylvania. Kate Gosselin is seeking damages and costs to cover her attorney's fees.

The 38-year-old is famous for appearing on the Discovery Health reality show where she and her husband - later just Gosselin when the couple divorced- raise her sextuplets and one set of twins. Gosselin has accused her husband of wiretapping, computer hacking, identity theft and invasion of privacy, according to a report on RadarOnline

The couple married in 1999 and after they had sextuplets in 2004 appeared together on 5 seasons of the reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8. In 2009 the couple announced they were divorcing, the announcement was made on the show. Jon Gosselin chose not to appear in the continuation of the show, Kate Plus 8, in a major capacity. Kate Plus 8's final episode aired in 2011 and the family have appeared sporadically on other reality shows. 

The suit claims "after the couple was separated, Jon illegally hacked into Kate's email account and her phone and bank accounts." It continues to allege that Jon stole a hard drive which contained a number of his ex-wife's personal details and contacts. It also appears to have contained entries from Kate's diary. These extracts, although not authenicated by Gosselin, include references to spanking the children.

It seems Gosselin believes her ex-husband provided information which contributed to Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World. The suit states on this matter "Hoffman used the illegally acquired data to publish a defamatory book about Kate." 

The suit includes a number of allegations against Jon Gosselin such as his attempt to hide his illegal activity by claiming to have found the information whilst searching through his ex-wife's trash. As you do...

This may be confirmed by a number of text messages obtained by Radar. These text messages are, apparently, between Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend in 2009. A text dating from 14th October of the same year reads "I'll be back soon grabbing Kate's computer before she gets home. I need that hard drive." 

The lawsuit was filed in Gosselin's home state of Pennsylvania. Kate Gosselin is seeking damages and costs to cover her attorney's fees.

If the lawsuit moves forward, Gosselin could be in some deep legal trouble.

“Jon violated a federal anti-hacking statute in order to publish salacious, scandalous and defamatory information about Kate,” said her lawyer A. Jordan Rushie. “It’s damaged her reputation.”

The lawsuit, which actually taps into some high-profile topics of 2013, accuses the former IT professional of wiretapping, identity theft and invasion of privacy. This is only the latest in a series of legal clashes between the former spouses. So far, the amount of damages Kate Gosselin is claiming has not been announced.

The fourth season premiere was broadcast on Wednesday night (14th August) at 10pm. According to Entertainment Weekly, the episode 'Till Duck Do Us Part' attracted an audience of 11.8 million viewers.

The record-breaking episode has knocked the tabloid fuelled antics of MTV's Jersey Shore and TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 -who previously competed before for the most-watched - off the top spot. 

The A&E documentary show follows the lives of the owners of the Duck Commander. Owned by the Robertson family the Louisiana-based business provides duck hunters with supplies. Phil and Si Robertson are the two brothers who own the business are the focal point of the series. Their families are also involved in the running of the business, particularly Phil's wife, Christine, and his sons Willie, Jason, Jep and Alan.  Other relatives are also involved including uncles, daughter-in-laws and other in-laws. 

Speaking to E! of the show's success on Wednesday, A&E Executive Vice President David McKillop, said "thanks to its authentic and engaging characters Duck Dynasty has become more than just a reality show, it is a cultural phenomenon. We would like to thank the Robertsons for their incredible partnership. We are all happy, happy, happy."

Duck Dynasty made headlines in March when Smiths frontman Morrissey refused to appear on the Jimmy Kimmel show with the Robertson family, labelling them as "animal serial killers."

Episode 2 of Duck Dynasty "So You Think You Can Date?" is due to be aired on August 28th at 10pm on A&E.
