Jon Gosselin's New Baby: Another Reality Show!

Oh for God's sake. Have you heard this thing today about how big fat party-dad Jon Gosselin might be getting his own reality show? Yeah, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 Kids and 2 Divorce Lawyers star is supposedly mulling over an offer from a production company to appear on a show called Divorced Dads Club. The program is about, um, divorced dads. Who are famous! And Jon Gosselin is definitely divorced and a dad, what with his brood of 8 tiny ATM machines milling about somewhere in Pennsylvania.

It could come at an opportune time for Big Fun Jonny, who is rumored to have tried to get his bloated mitts on the family bank account, having blown all his own money from the show on gloriously bedazzled Ed Hardy tuxedo shirts and swanky Manhattan bachelor pads and beer and stuff. Plus TLC might be trying to release him from his contract, mad as they are about all of his little blonde skirt chasing and late night Jaeger bomb fiestas.

There's no word, yet, about what channel the show would be on, what Gosselin would be paid, or any of those other "detail" things. For now it's just the gross, smeary knowledge that Gosselin is entertaining offers to appear on terrible reality shows. And it's probably not, as he's previously lied, because he wants to support his kids. He wants to light cheap cigars with dollar bills to impress the lay-days, is what I think.

So there you have it. A guy who started off as the pretty even-keeled, modest co-star of a sunny and cute little cable show has turned into a puffy, greedy, fame-chasing wannabe. That's a pretty sad ending to the whole Gosselin saga, and it's not even over. It's also a pretty sad reminder that fame and cameras and reality shows and all that stuff can't help but change you. Jon got changed into an aging frat boy in need of a boom mic.

Let's hope for everyone's sake that this miserable divorce show doesn't actually happen.

This is sad... I hope beyond hope that it doesn't happen... When the rumers of their seperation first started circulating almost everyone (including myself) was thinking (if not saying) 'good for him, cuz shes insane!'... but now fastforward to the present the only thing I can think is sure Kates insane but she was insane in the beginning and is still insane now, where as Jon went from being the quite easy-going guy into a money-hungry over-grown frat boy.

Well, as much as the idea disgusts me, Jon is going to need money for child support as well as providing presents for all his bimbo girlfriends. If Jon boy does get his own reality show will the kids be subjected to appearing in it?

It should be against the law to get a divorce if you have more than 3 kids, unless somone's life is in danger, or you seek counciling for a YEAR, plus pay a steep fine, not either/or. ($2000 to $3000) Also, if you have ANY kids at all, you MUST attend at LEAST 6 months of weekly counciling before a divorce is granted. No exceptions. Divorce is too easy in this country, and we NEED more core stability so folks aren't so messed up. Also, a lot of divorces are VERY selfish by one or the other arty...some of the crap has got to be dampened or stopped, to avoid mental illnesses. In the case of Jon and Tate, the divorce should be held illegal and out of bounds...and ONLY a judge can decide, not the parties involved...even in cases of adultry...and especially out of bounds if it is determined to be over money. In those cases, only the judge can decide. No fault needs to become illegal in all 50 states, so the family is more intact. 'nough said. Family first...always.

Why do we need yet another reality show???? Too many good scripted shows are already getting canceled to make room for reality shows. I hate it.
