Oh, dear. Remember when Jon Gosselin was just a poor sap who schlepped after his domineering wife and crazy but cute kids on TLC? Those were the good ol’ days, huh? Well, fast forward through one epic divorce, a bunch of Ed Hardy shirts, two diamond studs, and one restaurant maitre d’ job later and Jon Gosselin has finally gone off the rails. For the record, I think both he and Kate are equally deplorable but lately it seems like Jon doesn’t understand that his kids probably know how to use the internet and could easily read the disturbing things he’s been saying about the broken Gosselin family. His latest rant, while initially amusing, is really just kinda pathetic:
“Everyone thinks I’m out to get Kate. I don’t give a fuck! What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she’s an asshole, you know what I mean? I don’t have to—she’s proven that! Kate wants to still be on television. She’s now digging into the past, because that’s what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a fuck, really.”
Whew. That’s a lot of “fucks” for someone who doesn’t give any! Do I think he has a point (albeit buried in hate and stupidity)? Yes. I definitely get the vibe that Kate is desperate to maintain her TV persona lifestyle, and I don’t necessarily agree with any parent posting photos and updates of their small children on social media. But good Lord, man, as an ACOD I can totally relate to the hours of therapy these poor kids are going to need as they enter their formative years. Their mom is a fame-hungry shrew and their dad is an emotionally/mentally/financially unstable guy who lives in the woods and fires guns. Great.
Also, Jon is about to star in the newest season of VH1′s Couples Therapy, which leads me to believe he doesn’t know the meaning of the word “hypocrisy”. Talk about “digging into the past”, eh? People in reality show houses can’t throw stones at…other… reality show houses. Or something.
Godspeed, Gosselin children.
