Jon Gosselin Apologizes to Kate & It's Lame

Eye Roll 12

Kate GosselinI 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?

i think it's coming from a good place with good intentions. sometimes, immediately after a divorce, folks act out, as a rebellion against the institution they're leaving. i'm not excusing jon's behavior - he certainly brought his own bad publicity on himself - but it's not entirely unnatural, either.

at least he acknowledges where his faults were in the marriage and now has a better relationship with his ex-wife. they both had their share of faults that led to the marriage's demise, and we can sit and play armchair psychiatrist all day, but what matters is that he is there for his kids and that his words come from the heart.

It seems genuine, if inarticulate. At least its clear this isn't something his PR person wrote for him. He's taking ownership of his shortcomings in his marriage. What would you find to be more acceptable?

Ummm I'm pretty sure he made an apology to her in person.

I think it was heartfelt.  At least he step up and acknowledge his wrong doing.  When people go through difficult times sometimes they may act out or withdraw.  I think even if they didn't do the reality show the marriage was rocky, the show just accelerate it.

What gaming company does he work for?

I really could care less if he apologized..its the fact that he wanted to get away soo bad and act like a slut because he couldn't handle the stress that gets me. Relationships fall apart and I get that but when have kids, you go to the end of the earth to work through what you can and not just give up. Kate wasn't always easy but jon was a dick, taking care of 8 kids? Celebs get nannies to help them do that and this chick did as much as she could on her own. Those kids will all look back at the tabloids when they're old enough and see what a selfish man he was and HE will have to be the one to answer to all of them..I feel bad for him already.

Too little, too late.

So 2009... she was a rabid, star-struck bitch, who was more interested in flying around the US, than spending any length of time with her kids. He was sullen, childish, and tired of being publicly brow-beaten. I'd call it even. Looking forward to her apology in front of cameras she's so fond of.

Hey JackWood, YOU DON'T CHEAT ON YOUR SPOUSE, EVER!!!! If things are so bad, you get out of the situation. People who cheat on their spouse are selfish pieces of human debris! No matter what, there is no excuse for it! No respect for this idiot.
