Some people never learn. Jon Gosselin has been very vocal about the fact that he thinks reality TV has been bad for his family, yet he's signed up for another show. He will appear on the new season of VH1's Couples Therapy. And the (un)lucky woman joining him?
Unfortunately, it's not Kate. That would be epic. Can you imagine the venom that would spew from their mouths during each session? Ratings gold! But no dice. Instead, Jon will take the couch with his girlfriend Liz Jannetta, a single mom of three.
I doubt any fans of the show care about his so-called relationship with this woman. In fact, I am impressed that he can still get a girlfriend at this point. The guy has basically been portrayed as a deadbeat dad and all-around loser in the press. Not many women would go for that. With any luck, he will talk about all his past relationships -- namely his doomed marriage to Kate. Though the entire situation can't make his ex happy. He's likely to embarrass her even more than he already has.
I am sure he will get a lot of flack for returning to reality TV. But honestly, what else is the guy supposed to do. This is the problem with these shows -- they don't prepare you for life in the real world. After having TLC foot the bill for years, then coasting on that fame (or infamy) for awhile, Jon most recently found work as a waiter at a restaurant. It's respectable work, of course. But just think about how much his life has changed for the worse. The bottom line is, it seems he only knows how to do one thing really well and that is to be a douche on TV. There is no doubt the show will paint him as some sort of jerk to make things interesting. Between him and Kate, I can’t help but feel sorry for those poor Gosselin kids.
What do you think of Jon's decision to return to reality TV?
