I know we've all been wondering whatever happened to Jon Gosselin. Haha. Yeah, I know no one really cares, but let's check in with him anyway, shall we? Jon is apparently living in Pennsylvania, dating a single mother, working at a gaming company, and co-parenting with ex-wife, Kate. And here's a shocker. Jon has actually gone ahead and apologized for his behavior during and after their marriage. I just love a man who apologizes, so let's investigate this further.
Jon has told People magazine that he is sorry that after his divorce from Kate, he was busy partying and dating heaps of younger women rather than helping take care of his eight children. He says:
I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me.
Woah, what kind of apology is that?! He's sorry because he wouldn't want someone treating HIM that way? What about the way he treated Kate and the kids? Anyway.
Some people will stick up for Jon because Kate wasn't exactly Miss Congeniality during their marriage. Millions of people watched her put him down on a regular basis on Jon & Kate Plus 8. But wait, what's this, everybody? Jon shares the blame for the marriage falling apart. He says:
I was passive-aggressive. Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating.
Wow. I have to say, few people -- male or female -- can 'fess up to being passive-aggressive, so points for Jon. Jon says he's gone to counseling and also had spiritual advice from the same guru who would advise Michael Jackson. Er, is that a good thing?
At any rate, an apology from an ex-spouse and an acknowledgement that he or she shares blame in the marriage falling apart, is always welcome, even if it's not the most spectacular apology in the world. I just hope Jon apologized to Kate as well, and not just to the press.
What do you think of Jon's apology?
