I was drafted to write an update for Gosselin Chatter. I have to tell you – this wasn’t as easy as it looks. Things are basically zzzzz in Gosselin-land. It’s the day before Thanksgiving, the big finale has aired and nothing is apparently happening with the divorce or the TLC lawsuit. Hey, even Radar Online doesn’t have a Gosselin post up on their first page. When was the last time that happened?
That said, a bit of combing around did lead me to a few interesting Gosselin related items:
Jon Opens His Mouth Again – Not a Good Thing
“I mean, I put my kids out there to every pedophile on the planet, and they never got paid for it?” Gosselin said in the recording, spouting off about TLC allegedly profiting off his family. “It’s disgusting.” (Jon Gosselin in a recorded phone conversation with Michael Lohan).
I am giving Jon a break on this one because I think Michael Lohan is the sleaziest piece of you-know-what on the planet. What’s MiLo’s excuse now? Is he trying to force Jon into rehab? I guess screwing over your former BFF is nothing once you have done that to your own daughter.
I disagree with Jon’s assertions here, but I think I know what he was trying to say. Sigh.
Jon’s Going to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving
Best idea you have had in the last six months, Jon. I am glad to see there won’t be any drama. I was a little worried after you suggested on ET or The Insider (can’t keep those straight) that you might just show up on Thanksgiving even though it wasn’t your custody day. Glad to see cooler heads prevailed.
Gosselin Mania Ending?
Bill Zwecker of the Chicago Sun Times reports that Kate’s: “proposals to several toy manufacturers — for a line of eco-friendly playthings — have not been met with any enthusiasm. Ditto for her idea for a mom-friendly (whatever that means!) line of beauty products for busy mothers.” Further, Jon still has not landed a reality TV gig. Zwecker suggests that the Gosselin phenomenon may be coming to an end.
I personally think it’s too early to tell. I admire Kate for exploring different avenues to generate income. What’s the harm in trying? Some ventures may work out, others may not. I do think the bad publicity Jon has brought on the couple hasn’t helped her. We will see if she can remain a viable commodity once the divorce is final and she is seen as her own person separate from “Jon & Kate.”
Well, This Might Be a Good Sign
A few gossip websites are reporting that Kate will be interviewed by Barbara Walters for her 2009 Fascinating People special. Predictably, the Kate-haters are fit to be tied. Whatev….
