If you were hoping for Jon Gosselin to return to TLC — or any network, for that matter — you’re about to be real disappointed. The father-of-eight, who gained fame on the hit show Jon and Kate Plus 8, is putting his reality TV days behind him. That’s right, you’ll never see him on the small screen again. (Boooo).
“No, it’s an easy no,” the 41-year-old told In Touch while attending We TV’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present, and Future panel discussion in Beverly Hills last night. “There were times probably five years ago where I thought, ‘I am young enough maybe I could.’ But I’m exhausted.”
He added that although his career as a DJ has taken off, he’s over the nightlife scene. “Even DJing, I’m just exhausted. I’m trying to wean my gigs out now. I’m like ‘Hey do you want my gigs?’ I’m like so tired. And I don’t care. Give me 10 percent, I’ll sell them to you.” He continued, “I DJ’d for five years straight, I was full time for a while and then went part-time — even doing IT. I’ve been working two full-time jobs for five years! Having Hannah. It’s insane.”
ICYMI, Jon’s daughter, Hannah, 14, has been living with him since the beginning of the year. He also recently gained custody of his son, Collin — who has been in a treatment facility for children with special needs — when Kate didn’t show up to court.
“Jon has been trying to do everything by the book in order to obtain custody of Collin and it’s finally paid off,” an insider told Life & Style magazine, on newsstands now. “He really feels blessed.”
Now, the source says his court victory is “just the beginning.” They added, “He’s very patient and will do whatever it takes to get custody of as many of his kids as he can. He’s really serious about it.”
Welp, if Kate keeps bailing on her court dates, that just might happen!
