Jon Gosselin: I don't give a f-ck about my ex-wife Kate Gosselin, she's an assh-le
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 12/30/2013
Jon Gosselin has summed up his thoughts on his ex-wife, the mother of his eight children and his former Jon & Kate Plus 8 co-star Kate Gosselin -- he just doesn't give a f-ck.
"Everyone thinks I'm out to get Kate. I don't give a f-ck!" Jon toldPhiladelphia magazine in a recent interview.
"What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she's an assh-le, you know what I mean? I don't have to [say it]. She's proven that! Kate wants to still be on television. She's now digging into the past, because that's what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f-ck, really."
While Jon has been living in a cabin in the woods and working as a waiter at two different restaurants to supposedly avoid paparazzi and fame, he -- and not Kate, ironically -- will be returning to TV this week when he co-stars in the fourth season of Couples Therapy with his girlfriend of two years Liz Jannetta. The new season premieres Thursday, January 2 at 9PM ET/PT.
However, Jon claims his appearance on the VH1 series doesn't mean he's changed his previously-cited insistence that he's no longer interested in doing reality TV.
"I didn't put out an open bid -- this is something that just popped up," Jon told the magazine, adding that his relationship with Liz, a single mom of three, was struggling.
"We needed the therapy for our relationship. We really couldn't afford therapy. And it's free therapy."
Jon also claimed VH1 only contacted him several days before Halloween and then flew himself and Liz out to Los Angeles for just two weeks of filming shortly thereafter. Despite the recent TV stint, Jon still continues to insist he loves his privacy and "normal" life.
"Yeah, Twitter, I deleted it last year. Best thing I ever did. I can disappear. Nobody knows where I am," Jon explained. "[But Kate], she tweets everything. To the world, all about my children. I think it's disgusting and awful. They can't even have a normal life."
Jon previously starred in Jon & Kate Plus 8, which began airing in 2007 before being relaunched as Kate Plus 8 in 2010 following the couple's 2009 divorce. TLC announced it was canceling Kate Plus 8 in August 2011.
