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.”

    Jon has royaly screwed up and the only apology is to be down on his knees to Kate and to all the kids and beg them all to agree to let him come back in to the family. He is has lost “THE ONCE IN A LIFETIME” The chance to have a marriage and family with one man and woman and all their kids. and that can never come along again. when he is old he will regret it.for what do we have when we =are old but family. and he has wreaked his for sure………

    Blah, blah, blah……. He is still a DOUCHE!!! Jon was Kate’s NINTH child. Watching his behavior these last few months …. without Kate around, just proves this. She deserves saint hood after putting up with this man-child for 10 years.

    the attention he got from their reality show brought him into the spotlight. it all went to his head. he now thinks he’s some big, famous, in great demand movie star. he needs to come back down to earth. he makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth.

    There is a big difference in Jon and Kate in what their future holds. I will start with Kate…. Kate has been the main care giver of the family who as we know can be bit of a control freak, but I give her a lot of credit because it has to be hard to raise 8 children and to be organized as much as she is. It seems as the kids are getting older she has to adjust the “system” that she uses. I really believe she does a wonderful job with the kids and knows what works and doesn’t work in her ability of raising these kids. I am not saying she is perfect, but the kids seem to be very healthy and well behaved. They are thriving young childen. As far as Jon, I really think he does whatever she asks him to do. I don’t really think it comes natural to him, but he does do the best he can when he is around. I think without Kate there to guide him will be a downfall for him. The kids are at the age where they are more independent and that is a plus for Jon and Kate. I really think Jon needs counceling, but I really don’t know how he can find the right person since everyone seems to want something from him. Maybe he could go visit the Dugger family. Just kidding,….. but Jon does need to get his head on straight and think about what his future goals are before it’s too late.

    After being married to that screaming control freak. . . .getting stuck with eight kids by the time he was something like 29 or 30 maybe younger. . .Man. . .when he finally broke loose he was like a wild monkey out of a cage . Just a crazy loone that finally was taking his long needed break away from Kate and those eight little ATM machines. He hated her nagging he hated those kids never ending crying and he just wanted to forget that whole life and just par-T.
    Nobody told him to marry her and have eight kids. . . .but. . . I sure wouldn’t want to be that poor maroon

    @jake: agree this guy has a lots of second chances! if his actions goes with his words then people will give him another chance. 1st let’s see the actions!

    @Perri: So i guess you don’t like Brad and Angelina either! Why can’t they learn to balance just like celebrity couples. Brangelina has gone through hard times you can look and see their body language. Yet they keep working through it for themselves and the children. Angelina left her twins at 6 months to film, guess that makes her a bad mother. NOT. Kate has kept her focus on the children and her career while Jon has partied. That is the difference. Jon actions need to back up his words and people will turn. I am happy for Kate for having the chance to fill her dreams. Wish everyone could have their dreams fulfilled.

    Jon-your getting horrible advice. Your agent/lawyer need to quit putting out these ridiculous statements and you need to quit talking to the media. You do not have a career in entertainment and that is your doing.

    Maritza Says:

    How come nobody talks about the other reality shows like the Duggars, Little People, etc. They aren’t the only ones that have their children in a show. The only difference is that they are getting divorced, newsflash! that’s a fact of life, many marriages break up and move on. They can too. Jon is like a lost puppy, without Kate telling him what to do and keep him in check. Hailey needs to go back to college and forget this guy.

    Lisa2 Says:


    No, there is no way they will ever get back together. I think what Jon refers to is that he wants to be civil with Kate in raising the kids and quit fighting so much. Their marriage is over for both of them, too much has happened. I still think Jon resents Kate for everything, and I think Kate realizes Jon is not the same person that she fell in love with years ago.

    With each passing day it becomes more obvious what that mom was dealing with. What you see now is what that family used to have to deal with daily before he left to go screw college girls. He is not now, nor has he ever been, stable.

    kate only thinks of herself and her skunk hair and will she look on TV despite all her ugliness in full glory.

    this witch should be jailed for abusing and using her kids for money!

    Susie Smith Says:

    This guy is a real piece of work. The only reason he is even making statements like this is because he is going to end up owing someone, something. Now that everyone is coming down on his stupid, selfish, lifestyle and everyone wants him to GET HIS, he feels he needs to re-claim himself. What a jack-hole. I can’t even imagine being in a relationship of any kind with this dumbo. What happened to his statement about getting a 9-5 job, etc. He is using this, not Kate. What a complete JERK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jan Says:

    Jon needs to be committed, but not to his LYING, to a MENTAL HOSPITAL!!!! This man has shown the only loyalty he has is to his cigs, drinking, and womanizing. This is another stunt. NOT buying it Jon.

    WhoCares Says:

    I’m guessing that most of the people on here dissing Jon are man-hating shrews who worship the shrew of a wife that he’s had to put up with all these years. It’s not uncommon for a guy in his position to go a little wild after getting away from an emasculating ****-ry girl like Kate. I don’t blame her for all their problems, because there are always two sides to every story. It is ridiculous as well to throw all the blame onto him, though not unexpected considering that their audience consists mostly of unintelligent women who sit on their **** eating bon-bons and drinking diet soda. Lemme give all you Jon-haters a little hint—it’s not the dress that makes you look fat, it’s the FAT that makes you look fat, Miss Piggy.

    WhoCares Says:

    BTW, just a little advice for people like Susie Smith and Jan—the only time you should open your mouth is when your man tells you to—and then you should swallow when you’re done.
