Jon Gosselin isn’t going to set the world on fire with his DJ talents – at least not yet. That’s the consensus as the father of eight with Kate Gosselin tried out his new career spinning records, reported E News.
Heading to the chic environment provided by the Laurel Lanes’s Brewser’s Pub in Maple Shade, N.J., Jon worked the DJ booth faithfully to a crowd of one. But she did dance in the empty house, and an inside source praised Gosselin for his trial by DJ.
But despite the empty room, Jon claims he’s profiting by spinning discs four to five times a week. It’s a contrast to his financial problems that resulted in an eviction from his home.
As for taking on the job of being a dad to eight children, Jon suggested that he and his ex-wife Kate participate in the Couples Therapy show.
“We’re divorced, but why can’t we co-parent?” demanded Gosselin.
“I was thinking Kate and I could do a televised sit-down with a doctor and work out our differences, because our kids are suffering.”
But Kate has a different view on Jon’s fathering potential. While he felt that the children suffered when forced to participate in their former TLC series, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, his ex-wife argues that they enjoyed it. As a result, Kate claims that the kids were thrilled when she decided to film several Kate Plus Eight specials with the network.
“They cheered like crazy,” insisted Kate of how her children reacted. “It was like I announced that it’s Christmas tomorrow. Our crew walked in and it was like they had never left.”
Terrible idea, insisted Jon.
“He thinks it is a really bad idea for his kids,” said an insider. “Jon feels he has his kids’ best interest at heart.”
However, based on the parenting agreement, it’s up to Kate to decide the fate of the eight.
“Jon didn’t have to give his consent for their kids to tape the TLC special,” added the insider. “Kate’s not obligated to tell him anything.”
And at this point, says Kate, she simply ignores Jon because she disagrees with his perception of good parenting.
“I don’t let it bother me or affect me that much. I’m led by my gut, my heart, and doing what I’ve always set out to do as a parent.”
As for Kate’s own earning power, she’s relying on reality TV shows – and there’s the possibility of a millionaire boyfriend as well, as the Inquisitr reported.
In addition to Kate Plus Eight specials on TLC, Kate recently appeared on Celebrity Apprentice. And, as shown below, being fired came as a shock.
