Anyone who has ever watched “Kate Plus 8” or “Jon and Kate Plus 8” could probably offer some advice to Kate Gosselin. With the end of “Kate Plus 8” approaching, advice is being offerred from an unexpected source: ex-husband and ex-reality star Jon Gosselin.
In a recent interview with RumorFix, Jon Gosselin said “Reality TV is not a career. Get back to a normal life, a simple life. Provide for your family.” He was speaking in response to the cover story in People magazine about Kate’s TLC show cancellation and subsequent loss of income. Kate was quoted as saying “I’m really scared.”
Jon viewed his ex-wife’s financial situation differently. He said “Things will work out the way they should work out…Obviously there are families out there that have several kids — people work normal jobs and things work out. Everything is possible.”
Jon appears to practice what he preaches. After a divorce from Kate in 2009 that was almost as painful for millions of viewers of the show as it was for, Jon found a career as a computer support engineer, which he still does today.
Jon also showed little sympathy towards Kate’s concerns that she may have to move from her Pennsylvania farm home to a smaller house. Kate told People, “I told them [her children] I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school.” Jon’s response? “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.”
Jon Gosselin told RumorFix, “I go to work every day and provide for my family…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.”
