Jon Gosselin: I Am Committed to Making Things Right

Jon Gosselin released a statement earlier today to speak out about the allegations that he and Nadya Suleman would be pursuing a reality show together.

“I am troubled to learn that the media has accepted as true the scurrilous rumor that I would appear in a reality television program with Nadya Suleman. This is utterly false. I do however accept that some of my previous actions have in some way lent credence to such outrageous stories,” Jon wrote.

“I am well aware that my behavior over the past few months has not always reflected my personal and religious values. I further accept that I have allowed myself to become somewhat severed from my own moral anchor and be carried away by the challenges of fame. It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect.”

“I have always endeavored to be a loving father and a devoted parent who serves as a moral exemplar to his eight children. That’s what my father, a children’s dentist who always extended himself to his poorest patients, was to me. My father was my inspiration and moral compass. I intend to serve the same role for my own children by taking responsibility for my errors and making right any pain I have caused to those I love.”

“I ask the public to please understand the challenges I face in living under constant public scrutiny, even as I am aware that I have at times courted that scrutiny.”

“I am committed to making things right with Kate and especially my children. I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself.”

    Your ok, Jon. This dirt is coming from Kate who is desperate to stay in the media eye and TLC, Eileen O’neill is a creep.

    Those of us who watched the show know the truth. If not for the kids you would have been done with that witch years ago.

    slow and steady wins the race, your children adore you so just try to keep calm about it all.

    @Catalina # 2 — LMAO!

    This guy needs encouragement, alright. Encouragement to see a shrink, not a spiritual advisor. He needs to invest whatever remains of the money he earned from TLC in some heavy duty psychiatric treatment to reverse his regression to childhood. He seems to be trying to reinvent himself because his “handlers” probably feel if he does so, he can keep himself in the public eye. Both he and Kate need to get real jobs if they want to be taken seriously and raise their kids “normally” (assuming it’s possible at this juncture). He sure seems p’d off that he’d be associated w/ the likes of OctoMom. LOL I think they’d make a great pair! They deserve each other.

    so now he has found god, ok. Firts he tried to act like a teenager, then he tries to be a player, then he acts like a concern father. When none of that worked he finds god. OK, whats gonna happen next? This isnt Jons’ second chance, is like the fifth. He doesnt care about those kids, he only cares about everyone forgiving him so he can do the show again. The show will go on, cause Jon just realized no one will pay not even a dollar to see him at parties, so he needs to squeeze his kids for more money.

    ew. what’s with his tie?

    Lisa2 Says:

    He has been “nuts” for a long time, not just the past couple of months. Every time he does something stupid he appologizes and says he is going to “change”, then afew weeks later after he calms down some, he does somthing stupid again. He keeps doing this month after month. When he was with Kate he seemed somewhat charming and learning how to handle his new found fame and watching him with the kids was so endearing. We all felt for him when Kate would give him such a hard time. Now that they have been apart, he just doesn’t know how to act like an adult and take care of himself! It scares me to think he is caring for the kids correctly when Kate isn’t around. Hopefully they are at the age where they don’t get into things that can be dangerous. What Jon needs to do, is get out of the limelight and find a real job to take care of his children. When he was house shopping, he should have got a small house near the house he shares with Kate and be in his childrens lives while finding a local job. America just really doesn’t like him now so he needs to have a second plan on how he is going to make a living to help raise his children.

    Everybody chill. Give the guy a break. My father divorced my mom when we were young and proceeded then go and get married and divorced 7 other times, that we know of. Some people are bad with relationships. Some people are bad with maturity. Jon, like my own father did, seems to think religion will be the answer for him, and I tend to agree. At least the religion aspect will help to keep somewhat in check all the other disasters he will create.

    I dont hate my dad for being a lost cause. He’s my dad. This guy’s kids will still love him in spite of how many times they will roll their eyes on behalf of him over the years. At least he has them so as to remember to not completely self-combust one day.

    wait im confused, is saying he wants to get back together with kate to fix things??

    Perri Says:

    He is disgusting, but so is Kate. Exploiting their children for financial gain and publicity. Those two don’t deserve to have any kids much less 8.

    Magan Says:

    Right, Jon. I am not stupid. I don’t buy it. You’re just trying to get in Kate’s good graces again. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! GO away Jon. No one cares!

    tara Says:

    The dude realizes financially he’s up crap creek without a paddle now that he’s put a stop to the kids filming on TLC. I feel the show will go on. He’ll relent and allow them to film. He’ll get a paycheck from it, they are his kids also. As far as what he says about making things right, time will tell. Don’t know that I really believe him at this point.

    @Margaret Thatcher: Well Jon is not my dad so I dont have to like him, dont hate him though I would be wasting my time

    Rose Says:

    @tara: yes the show will go on cause he never cared about those kids, he was just pissed off his names was being dropped from the tittle

    jello Says:

    @rhonda: I agree with rhonda. I think Jon went wild after being w/that witch all these yrs. I believe he is trying to change, alot of people go thru something & find help spiritually. Kate on the other hand doesn’t care about any of her mistakes, the kids welfare, how she has practically destroyed another human being Jon & only thinks about me, me, me. They say when you think you do no wrong & never at the end of a day look back & wonder if how you handled something that day was done right & normal then you need psych help because no one is perfect & should even think that! Kate had mentioned in some article that she will not admit she made any mistakes to of caused the problems in the marriage. Instead of her mani’s/pedi’s, suntans etc. she should use some of the money she has hidden in those 11 accts. and get some help.
