Jon Gosselin has some words of advice for ex-wife Kate Gosselin now that her reality TV show Kate Plus 8 has been cancelled. He thinks now would be a really good time for Kate Gosselin to realize that “reality TV is not a career.”
Jon and Kate Gosselin started out on their reality TV journey together, along with their eight kids, on Jon and Kate Plus 8. The stress of life on television, however, proved too much for the couple and they divorced in 2009.
Although Jon Gosselin briefly pursued more Hollywood gigs (and a handful of girlfriends), he has now settled down to a relatively quiet life as a computer support engineer. Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, has continued to try to keep her and her children in the public eye as much as possible. Now that TLC has cancelled Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin told People she’s “freaking out” about how she is going to support her eight kids.
“Things will work out the way they should work out,” Jon Gosselin told RumorFix.com about hearing the news of the cancellation. “Obviously, there are families out there that have several kids â€“ people work normal jobs, and things work out.”
Jon Gosselin, who pays child support on his eight kids and says he sees them “a lot,” thinks his ex-wife should focus on getting “back to a normal life — a simple life.” As for whether or not Kate Gosselin will be able to keep the farmhouse in Pennsylvania where she and the kids live (and Jon and Kate spent their final days as a couple), Jon Gosselin seemed unconcerned. “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house,” he said.”
“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” Kate Gosselin told People. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”
The final episode of Kate Plus 8 airs on September 12 on TLC.
