Jon Gosselin: I Was Going to Quit Before TLC Fired Me
Jon Gosselin gave his side of the story to CNN interviewer Larry King on Thursday (October 1). Here’s what the 32-year-old reality TV dad shared:
On why he wants to pull the plug on Kate Plus 8:“It’s not healthy for my kids to be on the show… it’s detrimental to them. It’s my right as a parent and as a father of my kids to determine whether the show is good for my family. I don’t think it’s healthy for them because we’re going through a divorce right now. I don’t think it should be televised and I think my kids should be taken off the show.”
On why the change of heart: “I had an epiphany one day. I looked in the mirror and I said, ‘I don’t want to be this person anymore.’”
On if he regrets doing reality TV in the first place: “In the beginning, it was for financial purposes. I can’t tell you if I would have had a better life then or now. Would we have been better off? I don’t know.”
On learning from his past: “I’ve made mistakes, I’ve learned form my mistakes, I regret things. I have to move forward…I really didn’t mean despise. I regret saying that word. I was very emotional…sometimes you just say things you can’t really mean.”
