Jon Gosselin: Fame Canceled Out Conviction

Jon Gosselin: Fame Canceled Out Conviction

Jon Gosselin meets with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a former adviser to Michael Jackson, at a West Side Synagogue on Sunday (November 1).

“I think I’m just misunderstood. I’m not a fame seeker. Everyday I look in the mirror and I wonder [why I'm famous]. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC,” Jon said at the event, according to People. “Half the stuff I’ve done, if I look at my moral compass, I shouldn’t have done,” explained Jon. “I know that but I did it anyway. It’s like fame canceled out conviction.”

“It’s hard for me because I can’t forgive myself for the things I’ve done,” Jon said. “So to ask for forgiveness from someone who may never forgive me is tough for me. I do apologize to Kate. I’m sorry for doing the things I did. I do ask for her forgiveness.”

    ah, that’s sweet but unfortunately totally staged.
    Why go through the media and not tell her directly? Once a one trick pony always a one trick pony I guess

    Holy Shmoly! Doesn’t this guy have a heart? Doesn’t he ever get real? For god’s sake, apologize to your wife, in private and straighten up and behave like a man. Stop being so silly and such a fame seeker.

    If you are ashamed and your “compass” is off, just shut up and walk away from fame. I can guarantee we will all leave you alone.

    For the sake of the entire humanity, STOP WRITING ABOUT THESE NOBODYS!!!!!!! I can’t believe one can get publicity for acting like complete douchebags. No one cares about these famewhores!

    Didn’t he say he was Protestant at one point? Why is he seeking advice from a rabbi?

    If he really wants to apologize to anyone it should be the viewers who watched this moron for 5 seasons. And another group due an apology might be his kid’s. But if he apologized to them it would be admitting he is a selfish low-life and he wouldn’t want anyone thinking that. Don’t put this jackass on!

    If he really wanted help he’d see a Psychiatrist in private practice. Doesn’t want to be in the public eye my ass! Is anyone naieve enough to buy this?

    Just another way to redeem and justify his actions. Don’t believe a word of it.

    Khate is the one who is addicted to fame and fortune! But nooooo, that isn’t one of the things she said on “the Khate show” last night, was it?

    I think Jon just was pulled along. He isn’t an attention-seeker half as much as she is. I think Jon would go back to being dad and only dad if the poor kids could have a different mommy.

    Sad to say, they are stuck with old possum head for a mother and I fear for them.

    I would believe this not for publicity if were not for the almost theatrical, drama setting using the large, obviously religuous toned chairs. Please. If he was sincere he would do it what he always says he’s going to do and not continue to make public announcements through the media for $$$$.

    Jan Says:

    Another HOAX by Jon Gosselin. He needs money$$$ so is playing out his fame by creating more FAKE statements. He & Hailey planned her tears about him abusing her on The Insider, too. Jon was standing off stage watching it all. Jon is like balloon boy. IT IS ALL FOR A SHOW!!!

    Jenny Says:

    During this speech Jon also stated how hard it was for him to stay home and change diapers and do the things that “you expect your wife to do.” He makes me sick. He is nothing but a sexist, self-absorbed pig.

    Say it like it is Says:

    Both ,Jon and Kate, need to go away and raise those 8,EIGHTLITTLEINNOCETFACES,8 kids.
    They each have had enough fame,face time,and fortune.
    The kids have had enough tvt ime.Both parents have made millions.ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!

    watch Says:

    Jon needs to STFU and stop talking to the media. Why does he feel like the public needs to forgive him. I don’t give a damn who he sleeps with. Why does it matter what the public thinks. He can talk until the cows come home and he still won’t get the publics sympathy. Jon just doesn’t get it……he will never be able to change public opinions. Yes, he made mistakes…the first one was marrying that lazy eyed *****. The second mistake was letting her ass talk him into more fertility treatments. The third and fatal mistake was selling his soul and his childrens souls to TLC!!!
