Jon Gosselin Is "Hurt"

By Sassy Smith |


I’m not sure if we should get out the violins, but TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 daddy, Jon Gosselin, is “hurt” by his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kate Gosselin’s, statements regarding their split.

Kate had released a statement, saying:

“Over the course of this weekend, Jon’s activities have left me no choice but to file legal procedures in order to protect myself and our children.  While there are reasons why it was appropriate and necessary for me to initiate this proceeding, I do not wish to discuss those reasons at this time, in the hope that all issues will be resolved amicably between Jon and myself. As always, my first priority remains our children.”

She hasn’t, at least not yet, given her reasons as to why she filed immediately.  But she did say of Jon’s behavior, “It was event after event after event where I came to realize: This is not the same person I married.  I remember just looking at him and thinking, ‘I wouldn’t choose to marry that exact person right now…so why am I here?’”

Jon is apparently “hurt” by her statement.  He told Entertainment Tonight:

“Yesterday, Kate filed for divorce.  Our kids are still my No. 1 priority.  I love them and want to make sure they stay happy, healthy and safe.

“My job is being the best, most supportive and loving father that I can be to my kids, and not being married to Kate doesn’t change that. This will be a difficult transition for all of us, but Kate and I will work out a schedule that enables our kids to have plenty of quality time with both of us at home in Pennsylvania.

“I am deeply excited about openly dating my girlfriend saddened that we are divorcing, and also hurt by the statement Kate made last night about the divorce. I have always done everything I can to protect our family.

“The one thing I do agree with in Kate’s statement is her desire to resolve things amicably. Of course emotions are running high for both of us right now, but for the sake of our children and our family’s privacy, I hope that we can both limit our public comments about the legal proceedings going forward.”

Yes, when you’re on TV, it will be easy to limit your public junk.

I know, I know, I’m leaning towards Kate, and maybe that’s not fair.  Maybe she was horrible to live with/be married to.  I don’t know.  None of us will probably ever know.  But what I do know, is sometimes, people tend to blame the woman unfairly; oh she was such a shrew, such a b*tch, that he had no choice but to leave.  Maybe Jon is a total douche?  Maybe he is the one that broke their relationship?  Did we not see him on the couch on Monday’s show and he could barely contain his glee that he was free!  “I’m only 32!  I’m hurt BUT I’M EXCITED!”

Fine, sometimes relationships don’t work out for whatever reasons but honestly, did Jon have to display his happiness that it was over, on TV?  What happens when his kids see that episode?  Oh gee, daddy sure seemed glad he was leaving mommy.  Their divorce announcement should have NEVER been televised.  Stick another episode on instead, and put up a note on the screen that “due to recent events, the Gosselins are divorcing, and we (TLC) will not air the breakdown of this family,” or some such thing.

Oh well, what’s done is done.  Let’s hope Jon and Kate are true to their word, that they want to remain amicable and civil and put their kids first.

    Boo hoo, Jon. I don’t like the thought that I am taking sides here because they both have a bit of faults to them, but Jon seems to be the one who was ‘on the market’ again much earlier than Kate was. She just seems to be the one who is more sorry that their marriage has come to an end.

  2. yomama says:

    Truthfully, I didn’t see any glee, just someone making the best of sad circumstances. We’ll never know who cheated first, if anyone did, and fault for the marriage’s end should be distributed between Kate (for berating and belittling Jon constantly, even when he played Mr. Mom while she was rarely home) and Jon (for not standing up for himself earlier and communicating poorly.) Calling Kate out for being a shrew (at least in what we saw on the air) isn’t unfeminist, it’s just fact. They both need to grow up and pull the plug on their show for the sake of their kids.

  3. What? says:

    Wah Wah Wah! I am sure Jon is so hurt. Kate isn’t going around saying how hurt she is that he has been prancing around with some girl but that seems to be what has happened. From what we could se, she did rule the roost as he put it but someone had to with 8 kids to raise. I thought she was pretty organized honestly and even if she has help, my house does not run nearly as smoothly and I only have 2. I think he wanted separation so he could have a chance to run around with his girlfriend and Kate said sorry buddy, that’s grounds for divorce. I feel bad for both of them but he is bringing on himself. I think Kate would have tried to work it out.

  4. on the other hand says:

    If Kate really put her kids first, she wouldn’t be on the cover of People magazine giving details about the split. There’s blame on both sides, but she needs to be quiet, go away, and be comforted by her “bodyguard.” ‘Nuff said.

  5. Charlottw says:

    If you really carew about your children then take some of your “free” time and spend it with your kids. It’s sad to think that your kids are going to have to deal with your insecure….ridiculous …libido. You aren’t too bright, Jon, but even you know that your kids ARE the lones being hurt. Shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Michele says:

    I think he should be neutered like dogs should be. He needs a vasectomy.

  7. Karen Webb says:

    Don’t be so quick to blame Jon for causing the split and upcoming divorce…there is the matter of Kate and her “bodyguard”.
    TLC should cancel this horrible depiction of a family meltdown.
    It is not entertaining to see two greedy “parents” pimping their children for money and their own selfish wants.

  8. Mary says:

    All I can say is shame on you Jon Gosselin! Children do see those magazines at the grocery store,etc. Wonder what your children think about you and your girlfriends?

  9. Jack B. says:

    Jon is immature and selfish. He needs to grow up. Whether he likes it or not he has fathered 8 kids and they need a loving supportive father. Not one who is making plans to take a young girl to the prom! That is what he is regressing to. I would have had a lot more empathy for him if he would have bought a house close to Kate to take care of the kids and maintain what he said he would do and that is be there for his kids. Grow up Jon!

  10. Osceola Walters says:

    This sounds way too much like my best friend and his ex-wife. His ex-wife had been keeping him on a very short leash and seemed to be smothering him. Granted, he should be spending a lot of time with his wife and daughter. However, that smothering drove him to do some pretty stupid things (borderline cheating) which was the basis for her divorce claim. There was no violence or anythig. So, for the sake of the children, even when there is a separation, there should be SERIOUS counseling. If everyone airs their issues and is open to listening, there should be no reason for a divorce to be finalized and put the children through a life like that.

  11. Jean says:

    Noticed Kate is gassing her own car…and she never knew how to dress and now wears tight pants, low tops(boob job) and high heels. I can’t see why Jon stayed with her that long, she is a miserable person and got too involved in the spotlight and I think that caused problems also.

  12. Alice P. says:

    Jon signed up for something he was not big (mature) enough to handle.
    Who else is he going to blame but Kate. He needs to grow up and deal with grown up responsibilities. He’s doing the same thing all immature men do. Cheat…Lie…and cry. Go home to mommy!!!

  13. Kathy W. says:

    I think that the worst things that people do is find who to blame. Regardless of who did what, each person is responsible for their own decisions. Both Jon and Kate made a decision to be married and to have children(regardless of how many). Their vows include rich or poor(they have seen both), better or worse(they have seen both of these too), in sickness and health(I think this would include mental delusions of life being greener on the other side). These vows can be tainted or damanged but forever Jon and Kate will be married to each other (regardless of a piece of paper of divorce) because of the past that they have shared. You can not share 10 years together and pretend that that bond does not exist. Even though Kate is controlling and seems demanding(I am sure she was this way when Jon married her, it was probably one of those things he loved about her at the time), Jon should not give up on her. Communication is the key. I have to say that Kate seems to be the mature one in this situation. Regardless of what is going on she is keeping a low profile while Jon is basking in the lime light of tabloid reports of his many girls so far, and believe me there will be more. People thrive on the misery of others. We all like to see the horrible things that happen to others. I think it makes us feel better about our mistakes and failures. It lets us know that none of his are perfect. Maybe be on a reality show did not help the marriage, but it did let us know that Jon and Kate have problems just like the rest of us (with no kids or eight kids). I feel for both of them and think that they should both re-think their present life. There will never be another person who will meet the expectations that they have for each other except for each other. The family is the greatest gift here on this earth. They should realize the treasures they have with each other and their chidren, try to repair the damage and forgive and move forward. I personally would much rather see a fairy tale happy ending than to see either of them married or involved with someone else. I have always watched their show because it made me feel good about life seeing them deal with all the issues of raising eight kids but somehow they always made it work. I hope they can put this behind them and show America how a family can deal with anything(and this is certainly huge and sad) and still come out as a family, strong, loving and committed to each other and their children just as it should be. What God has joined together, let NO MAN put asunder.

    I can’t beleive that this a hole is getting so much sympathy from people. Yes any marriage that is dealing with raising 8 children is going to have its rough spots, probably more than one with a couple of kids, but he most definitley played off the fact that so many people were saying,”oh poor Jon, Kate is so hard on him” Well what do you think?!! He is obviously a wuss therefore forcing Kate to be the “man” in the relationship and she was getting tired of it. Jon is totally incapable of making any choices, or giving any direction to this family. All he does is sit in the background and let Kate do everything and it’s no wonder why she treated him like such. A woman wants a MAN!! A real man who takes charge and makes her feel like she can be the woman. It’s gets very old when the woman must play both roles in the marriage. Now he wants to see other women and teach his children this is how you play husband and wife, mother and father leaving the world with 8 more screwed up individuals. And the best part is he has to date a little girl 10 years his junior because he knows he can’t get a real woman his age because #1 real women want a real man and #2 no real woman would repectively date a guy who just up and walks out on his wife and 8 kids! This little girl he’s dating only wants the fading spotlight that’s on him. She’s looking to be the talk of the town and hoping to get her 15 minutes and for what?! To be known as the idiot sl*t who took a dumb@$$ out of his marriage and ultimately ruined the life of those 8 kids. Yes Kate has her issues that need to be addressed but she is the sole parent that is attending to thses kids while the other so called parent is out living like he’s a freakin teenager again. GROW UP!! YOU HAVE 8 LIVING BREATHING GROWING CHILDREN THAT NEED YOUR GUIDANCE!! Does ANYBODY understand the agreement they sign off on when they get married to someone? BETTER OR WORSE, SICKNESS AND HEALTH, GOOD TIMES AND BAD, blah blah blah. ANYBODY?! Why do these people get married if they know they don’t actually have those intentions? If you know you won’t feel that way when the bad time comes then you are obviously not with the person you are supposed to be. DON”T WASTE THEIR TIME AND YOURS!!!! Jon you need to man up and get your a$$ home and make it right with Kate and your kids!!!!! Kate you need to drop this show like a bad habit and make it right for the whole family!! Those kids will only be kids for a short while girl make it count!! thanks for listening to my rant I just had to get that out.
