Jon Gosselin is a Momma's Boy

Jon Gosselin is a Momma's Boy

A red-faced Jon Gosselin spends some quality time with his mom, Pam Gosselin, in Las Vegas on Monday (August 31).

On Saturday, the 34-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad invited his mom to Las Vegas to attend the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand Hotel. Yesterday, they dined at Stack in the Mirage Hotel and were spotted shopping at The Magic Marketplace Trade Show.

Jon chatted with E! about whether or not he feels his children are being exploited.

“I’m not saying TLC is exploiting my children,” said Jon. “But I do believe the media and tabloids covering my family and the show for their own financial gain are the ones exploiting them. I have said on numerous occasions TLC has afforded my kids a better life and has helped provide a better roof on their heads.”

    Like mother like son. Just look at the picture from ROL with all the great cocktails they are having. I now see that his own mother led him to the wrong path all these times. The loser is in it for himself and nobody else. My goodness, the tups and the twins need a FATHER in their lives, but unfortunately Jon is all they have and it’s not only sad but disgusting. If jon looks at himself in the mirror everyday, he knows what he does and have done within the last few months, which is smoking, drinking, drugs, womanizing in front of the whole world, but most importantly his OWN kids. The guy is a total LOSER, imo.

  • danielson

    If Jon and Kate think anybody is exploiting their children, or are so sick of the paparazzi that they constantly complain about, here is a wild idea… STOP THE SHOW. 5yr olds supporting their selfish parents’ lifestyles…welcome to America!

  • mike

    aww look, Jon is allowed to see his mother again. Sorry Kate, you must be fuming

  • Michelle

    He is totally lost. He cannot think for himself. He said it himself that he was spoiled. He has no idea how to take care of himself, let alone eight children because he is a child himself. I have a 10 year old that is more mature in in tune of this world. I think he was a wise as* always looking for a easy way out and he found it with the show and the popularity. I just feel so so sad for those children and so called “father” that has the same mental status as Cara and Mady.

  • mailey

    ew, he is so gross.

  • HJ

    @danielson: The show is not what exploits the children. And stopping the show? WHats that gonna do? Papparazzi follow them no matter what.

    In the past seasons there were none of this tabloid crap and they led good lives. All up until this whole Jon cheated on Kate thing, thats when it exploded. Before that it was fine……..

    So all the people saying they should quit the show..thats not going to change shittt

  • jasmine

    How nice that Jon’s mom was able to make it to Vegas – I wonder when she’s planning to spend some time with her grandkids?
    Kate isn’t able to control who Jon brings home to watch the kids when she isn’t there, so even IF she’s not willing to welcome this woman for some reason, surely Jon could get his mom to help when it’s his turn with the kids.
    Or maybe Mom is an opportunist like her son?

    “TLC has afforded my kids a better life and has helped provide a better roof on their heads.”
    .
    -hope the roof drops on Kate’s head.

  • Cindy

    The fans of this show will not tolerate Jon being on the show ever again. The majority of the fans of this show started watching as a feel good family show. Every since Jon has acted from February until now, has totally turned off by Jon’s behavior. TLC, it’s in your hands, but if Jon is on the show, the majority of the fans who tune in week out and week in will be turned off and tuned out. Please get Jon out of the show or else the ratings will not only drop but everyone that’s the fans of this show will be so put off that TLC will be soon be gone and forgotten also. It will happen, mark our words, as a mother and a fan.

  • betty davis

    mommy no good

  • Katie

    Jon is 32. And Bradley Cooper is 34, not 42 as previously reported.

  • CTMVD

    Kate is 100 times hotter than any of the women that Jon is chasing.

  • kitcatjasmine

    @Cindy:
    Hey, fan of the show…..speak for yourself alone! Jon is no worse than Kate and at least he has added an honest element to the travesty that has become their life. She is nothing short of a liar and ultimate user. The show should be pulled and the kids should be allowed to be kids… bottom line.

  • simon

    While I am not a fan of Jon’s I think that people who say rude things about his mother are totally disgusting. What kind of low life says things about someone Mother ; especially when they know nothing about her,

  • Wendy

    @Cindy:

    You think that Kate can carry the show by herself. You have got to be kidding, Kate is worse than Jon; she just knows how to fool people and he doesn’t.

  • Cindy

    @kitcajsamine
    Bottom line, why do you think this show is/was popular in the first place? People watch this show because it was such a family show with all the right elements. If you want to pull the show for the children’s sake, why not pull 17/18 and counting, toddlers and tiara, ABC family show with children half the ages of Kate’s children, I do not want to include Jon in this because he is not worth it? Why not go after them? The bottom line is, Jon always wanted the easy way out, so why not do that when the show is popular? Now he has some money which I believe will not last that long, but why not keep all the money wasting for his children’s welfare? Bottom line is, he is selfish, immature, and he always comes first. Say what you will about Kate, but at least she has some class to not expose the kids with foolish behavior as this imbecile has done for the last few months. If not for him, the negative publicity would never have happened. And yes, I’m sure your own kids would like if this idiot of a husband is smoking, drinking, doing drugs, shacking with at least 4 women and do put that loosely that we know of that has been plastered all over the dirt magazine with photos and stories of them drinking, smoking, putting a gun to a friend, being so gone that a picture of her throwing up by the toilet, and knocking over a tree outside her apartment, and I could go on and on, as your own husband. These are some but not all reasons that TLC have to do any steps to make sure that Jon is never on the show again. He is a loser, bottom line.

  • Logan

    Always was curious to see his mom. Thanks Jared.

  • VanM

    @kitcatjasmine…..Seriously your comment was so moronic I almost didn’t adress it but I decided to because it makes me feel bettr just to able to call you and IDIOT…….I agree with Cindy I will continue to watch the show but only if TLC removes Jon from it. Everything was fine until he decided to cheat on Kate. HE WAS THE ONE THAT RUINED EVERYTHING BY CHEATING AND GETTING CAUGHT SEVERAL TIMES. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT HE WAS DOING IT LONG BEFORE HE GOT CAUGHT AND KATE KNEW ABOUT IT. BUT SOMETIMES A WIFE CHOSES TO STAND BY HER MAN, WELL I’M GLAD SHE FINALLY DECIDED TO KICK HIS ASS TO THE CURB. HE IS DISGUSTING AND ANYONE THAT PRAISES OR MAKES EXCUSES FOR HIS BEHAVIOUR IS ALSO DISGUSTING. JONS ACTIONS WILL ALWAYS BE FAR MORE REMEMBERED THAN KATE BEING A BITCH, AND I DON’T BLAME HER FOR BEING A BITCH I WOULD BE TOO IF I HAD TO WORRY ABOUT WHERE MY HUSBAND WAS AND WHO HE IS SCREWING AROUND WITH NOW WHILE I AM HOME WITH THE EIGHT KIDS HE PROMISED TO HELP ME TAKE CARE OF…….

  • kitcatjasmine

    @Cindy:
    And Kate using the kids to support her lifestyle projects the right image and values? She is only with those kids with cameras rolling and people watching. She is is only interested in her own self glory and pampering care and it is only too evident by watching this show. tTe other shows mentioned DO NOT RELY on the money from filming their children for their sole support…big difference.

  • kitcatjasmine

    @VanM:
    Bigger idiot! Anyone who believes the lies told by TLC is the moron. Could care less what someone like you has to say to anyone. You must be one of those control freaks trying desperately to hold on to some man by the same means Kate did…..that worked out well, did’nt it?

  • jasmine

    kitkatjasmine (please don’t confuse me with her) is one of the losers who hangs out all day on the hate-Kate blog, GWOP. Go over there and see what they have to say about everything Gosselin if you want to be really disgusted by human nature at it’s saddest.

    They profess to care about the kids, but more than 50% of the posts are mocking Kate’s hair, clothes, shoes, laugh etc. What a mean-spirited, nasty bunch of bullies they are!

  • leah

    @cindy—

    There are some of us fans that would prefer to see Jon take his kids/sons on the ranch vacations vs. Kate. Speak for yourself but Jon is the more natural parent and the kids look happy when they are with him.
    The kids seem happier when their mother is gone….as one of the boys said last episode.

    IMHO, neither parent needs to be parading their children on the front lawn for the sake of the paps or exploiting their child for profit. BOTH DO IT. It is sad what fame #$!@$% both parents have become, they both seek attention…the children have no voice.

  • Cindy

    I don’t even want to comment on it kitcatjasmine cause there is no justifacations on your opinions and answers. This is the best hand that she has been dealt with, excluding Jon. How else is she going to provide for the children, when the father is a child himself? Yes, sure she could go back to nursing, but there are opportunites out there where she could get so much more. Sure the kids are being filmed, but I have never seen them unhappy whatsoever with the cameras around. Like Kate said they are like friends and family. As I have mentioned, how about the 1718 kids and counting, toddlers and tiaras, ABC family kids, etc., ? I’m sure the show is not going to last forever ever since Jon’s stupidity so I’m sure the bookings and tours are the next step for her to provide for the children because Jon is not going to do it, for sure.

  • kitcatjasmine

    @jasmine:
    Never been on the site….sorry to disappoint! Seems like YOU know an awful lot about trolling for Gosselin news??????????
    Thought maybe people were open to a discussion but I see as always the only response is that people who have a differing opinion other than the Goosselins (or Kate) are gods is that we are all jealous haters with no life…..I think the exact opposite is closer to the truth.

  • VanM

    Kitkatjasmine: I believe what I see and that is JON ACTING LIKE AN ASS trying to recapture his youth his comments are not something that are scripted by TLC…I don’t blame TLC they didn’t make him go out and cheat on his wife…. I BLAME JON HE IS THE LOSER..Talking to the paps outside his house, smoking, drinking and looking STONED OUT OF HIS MIND. I believe the pictures because honey ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS and PHOTOS DON’T LIE..SO PUT THAT IN YOUR CRACK PIPE AND SMOKE IT…..AND BY THE WAY I AM NOT LIKE KATE. I AM NOT A CONTROL FREAK AND I DON’T HAVE TO BABYSIT MY HUSBAND…. IT JUST AMAZES ME HOW SOME WOMEN CAN COME ON HERE AND DEFEND JONS ACTIONS, MAYBE YOU ARE THE ONE THAT IS MARRIED TO A MAN LIKE JON AND SEEING ANOTHER MAN DO WHAT HE DOES MAKES IT OK?????????

  • aREalmom

    I thought Jon’s family did not want to be filmed or on TV?

    All those times – from the very beginning of the show – and everyone was like — WHERE ARE THE GRANDPARENTS???!!!!!

    What NORMAL family doesn’t have grandparents — even with ONE — let alone EIGHT?!

    Not ONCE did the stupid show have the grandparents on!!
    Now — suddenly — there is Jon’s MOM —– in VEGAS no less — and NOT with the grandchildren!

    WHO’S EXPLOITING YOUR KIDS, JON??????

    YOU AND KATE — AND TLC/THE LYING CHANNEL — THAT’S WHO!

  • kitcatjasmine

    @VanM:
    Sorry, no such man in my life…….

  • staying put

    People upset with Jon and Kate should know right now — they are in it for the long haul.

    They have TWO MORE YEARS left on their contract with TLC – so that is 640 more days of this crap!

    I, for one, an done reading about, posting about or generally caring about these losers. Good luck to the kids — they will more than need it.

    Off to live MY life….all should do the same…and maybe these losers will GO AWAY! ;)

  • Excuse me?

    So this still-married father of 8 young, impressionable children is: flaunting his affair with a former coke head and with a tab reporter; lounging WITH the former cokehead in the South of France; hosting pool parties in Vegas, all while his young children are at home and while his MOTHER is apparently supporting his behavior? Someone please nominate this guy for Father of the Year.

  • Sharon miles

    Kate isn’t any better than Jon, she is just better at hiding it. It will all come out sooner or later. and then there will be no more Jon & Kate + 8.

    Katie,
    You’re a hoot!

    I did let the numb-cunt ride a bit on the rules of debate because it is clear to me she’s never been any closer to an actual debate forum than she’s been to a Rolls Royce with her name on the vanity plate. I can be kind to the less fortunate you know.

    I might be a snob but damn I have a good heart!

    im just wondering when they’re gonna cancel the show, i dont think there is any1 way to make ratings go up again, only if the put one of jon’s ho on for an episode but that’s gonna be the peak and then the show is gonna be on a decline to cancellation
    i can kinda see where jon got some of his douche influence from…

  • lISA

    Your all jealous of me because I have a blog. Come and look at how pretty I am. http://realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/2009/08/rabid-defenders-of-kate-without-pity_31.html#comments

    Nina the expert on EVERYTHING said…
    Clearly what we has here is an asshole with a major hard-on for Moon(Jealousy?) This person does NOT comprehend the terms of debate anymore than they comprehend creativity or have the credentials, skills or the capacity to judge it.

    People who lack creative skills are oft times the first to attempt to critique it when others venture into the arts.

    I here and now deem myself the winner of the NOT-A-DEBATE and close the floor. I also won the ALMOST-A-PISSING CONTEST!

    I recommend, that moron take a stroll over to Moon’s and try to sort some issues out.

    My PROFESIONAL opinion as well as my last and final words on Moon’s artistic persuits is that she is an accomplished and talented artist with a bright career ahead of her. THE END.

    My roast smells yummy and my salad need to be chopped!

    Ladies – how much are we betting that Loony doesn’t post anything more once they see Nina’s comments at 3:39 does indeed address directly her question? I believe she stated she has seen a number of her pieces, both completed and in progress, and that she utilizes a mixed medium.

    Furthermore, Loony, she also states that there is more than once piece to view on Moon’s site.

    So, what you have done, Loony, is proven that you are illiterate. Good work.

    Now, can we please go back to what this blog is for – which is snarking on celebs and their ridiculous antics.

    Nina – good work, but you do not need my endorsement. We are all one…. (lqtm)

    Brig,
    I may well be accused of being a, “Psycho-sock” today. I just went ballistic over on Lisa’s site about some idiot, over on JJ’s making insulting remarks about Moon and Dirty Disher. I don’t care what the morons say about me, but this went too far.
    I needed to go sip tea and listen to Enya to regain my usual easy-going nature. I don’t get that perturbed too often, I actually like being happy…

    AWW Brig,
    No worries, I snapped right back to giggles and good thoughts and I am indeed planning a spa day with my twin sister on Sat.!

    I went back to the site and ended up in a bull-puckey exchange with someone who doesn’t like Moon.

    That was actually a lot of fun and perked my day right up! Nothing like debating with a fool to make the sun shine brighter! rofl..I crack myself right up sometimes with my own nonsense.

    How are you doing with the pain. Migraines and the fibro?

  • emmy jay

    Wow, a couple of those little girls look just like their Gramma. People seem to get so upset if a comment is made about them “not being so cute”…well not all kids are naturally cute once they hit a certain age. And, I think they got the Granny look going and really don’t think they are all that cute any more. They are growing out of cute, and are turning into clingy, somewhat under developed kids.

    Line up the shrinks…..they are going to need them.

  • lisamarie

    Hannah and Alexis look alot like Jon’s mother.
    That being said, they’re BOTH pimping out their children. Jon got paid to appear in LV, Kate gets paid to do appearances also. They take turns being home with the kids–Kate is scheduled to be gone next. Their divorce is going to be final in Sept. They are and have been legally separated for some time now–who really cares who Jon or Kate dates?

    LisaK~ You have a HUGE amount of balls posting on my site after all the vicious lies and crap you write about me. I was just going to delete your post, but I figured since your on MY turf I was going to say my peace. You know who’s not a good person? YOU! For slandering not only Kate on a daily basis but myself on multiple forums like you know better.

    Kate was just being sarcastic as she always does and you of all people just take each comment and slant it any negative way you can. When are you going to realize that just because the comments here aren’t 50 deep doesn’t make this any less of a great fan site. Why do you and Loony Moon feel so threatened? Here I run this show, and I know you were smart enough not to go all out. But take the speech elsewhere. Here is Mama’s house and I’m putting your behind in a “time out”.

    It boggles the mind when I read the things that you say on other blogs. It only confirms that those that slam Kate for being rude and nasty are no better themselves. Be safe on your way home to the bridge….
