Jon Gosselin's Final Interview: He Disses Ex-Wife Kate Gosselin & What She's Done To Their Kids!

If you thought Jon was rushing to DVR ‘Kate Plus 8′ to keep tabs on his ex-wife, think again! Jon never watches Kate on TV!

Jon Gosselin is taking the high road. Even though ex-wife Kate Gosselin made repeated jabs at him on Today by insinuating he’s a deadbeat dad, Jon doesn’t say one nasty thing about Kate in his last-ever interview with In Touch. Instead, he says he couldn’t care less what his ex-wife is up to and his main focus is leading a “normal life” with his girlfriend of over one year, Ellen Ross.

“That’s her life. I don’t really have anything to say about it,” he said. “As soon as I left TV, I stopped watching everything.” Ouch!

The world watched Jon and Kate’s marriage fall apart on their hit TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8, and it was followed by their bitter divorce in 2009. But despite being called a cheater and a fame-hungry dad, Jon says the divorce was the best thing that ever happened to him.

“It’s changed me for the better. I know who I am now,” Jon says. “I was very young when I got married, and then certain things happened, and I’m a much stronger person than I was. I’m much more independent.”

But Jon isn’t looking to win back Kate — he says his new girlfriend Ellen, 24, is nothing like her — and said it’s refreshing to be with someone who isn’t interested in becoming a celebrity.

“I think it’s reassuring to find someone who doesn’t want the spotlight and is able to ignore gossip and rumors,” Jon says. “I think we complement each other very well.”

Jon’s main focus right now is his 9-5 job installing solar farms and “building a normal life for [my kids] for them when they come off TV.”

We’re glad Jon has his priorities straight — maybe Kate will follow suit!

And if you are worried about the cameras in the children’s faces, then why do you keep watching the show? I believe she will stop the show as soon as the kids tell her they dnt want to do it anymore, but looks like they still enjoy the attention!

I think they are both good parents, they both just changed a lot and that can happen to any married couple, i really admire both of them and only wish love and happiness on them both..those kids are too cute for words and hopefully always will be!

Did anyone else notice that this article said the exact opposite of what the headline advertised? Sensational journalism at its best. “Hollywood Life,” I hope no one in your office considers herself to be a real writer, in any sense of the word.

OH COME ON JON!!!! (refreshing to be with someone who doesn’t like the spotlight or gossip..What do you think Ellen’s Advise Blog is about..Dah!!! As Dr Phil would say “Do you think people just fell off a turnip truck” You both endorse products on twitter..You are trying to save face because of all your stupid mistakes..Change is good but don’t try to fool others in thinking you don’t like the attention.

Peanut, having an advice blog, endorsing products on twitter, is not at all the same as having cameras stuck in your children’s faces for seven years! I am sure Jon does miss the entertainment money (as anyone would), but there is a very high price to pay for that money. If it is continiual exploitation of your children, then it is not worth the ultimate price for that new purse today, and ruined lives of tomorrow!

I totally agree with you peanut1957! If offered a realty or any kind of show, jon would immediately grab the opportunity. And that comment that Kate made “wishing jon would spend more time with the kids”. Notice how jon didn’t respond…because it’s true! Kate is bossy but she has been a dedicated parent to her children. Remember how jon abandoned them for his mistresses. How he spent money on himself/girls a lot…barhopping, drinking, using a gun around kids,etc.–how quickly a few choice words from jon & all forgiven. Animals like him don’t change & he is still waiting to be in the spotlight again. BTW, isn’t he pure korean? Not a criticism but he has no caucasian features (fake light eyes).

Jon may be very disliked as a parent from “past” behaviors, but Kate Gosselin has “haters” as a parent and apparently needs a high priced TLC bodyguard. She does not have the bodyguard (security) because she has any talent or because she is an A, or B lister celebrity!

I read this interview, no where does Jon “DISS” his ex. He simply says he doesn’t watch the show. When asked about his relationship with Kate, he refused to comment. That is a heck of lot better than what Kate does. Every chance she gets, she digs him. Even on her stupid twitter account, she continually digs Jon. Too bad SHE can’t move on. This headline is very misleading and not true. I am happy for Jon. People SHOULD be happy he has moved into a better place for the KIDS sake.

People sound ridiculous claiming that Jon wants a private. I guess everybody is forgetting his famewhoring after the split. He was doing interviews and public appearrances for anybody who would pay him. He was desperately trying to get his own show. He even attached himself to Michael Lohan of all people. The only reason he has a normal job is Hollywood stopped calling. If there was a market for him Jon wouldn’t be living annonymously. Come on, he’s talking to a tabloid.

Hey Beth, move on! Jon made mistakes IN THE PAST. Kate Gosselin continues to make public appearances for anyone who will pay her, is desperately trying to keep she and the children on TV, and has attached herself to grifters (alienated all family members), and continues to abuse her kiddies by relentless filming (not to mention her continual lies to the public from her talk show circuit). I respect Jon and loathe Kate Gosselin because she is simply deceitful. At least Jon put it all out there and has changed his ways.

I would love to see Jon. And, I applaud him for making difficult decisions in his life. He may not be getting lucrative amounts of money by selling his children’s privacy to the highest bidder like Kate Gosselin, but he is gainfully employed and doing the best he can like all the rest of us in the world. Hooray for Jon.

Yeah, right, Jon has his priorties right. No one wants him. He had to go outside his field to “work”. He is an idiot now and always. He is green with envy over Kate’s success and money. I laugh every time it is mentioned.

Kate’s so called “success” and “money” have come from birthing 8 children and relentless filming of those children. Kate is nothing without those children. She has no talent! She cannot even deliver a simple sentence on camera without an “um” “um” “oh” “ah” blah, blah. She has alienated almost everyone around her and the kids with her premadonna attitude (the star she thinks she is). She is a complete and hopeless case. Maybe lots of therapy may help, but I doubt it. The tanking ratings for her show prove she is a loser.

It is not FAKE KATE that is successful, it is the kids that are successful. She is such a creep, she seems like one of those spiteful types. Which probaly are the worst kind. Her days are numbered.

How do you know he hasn’t gotten offers? Yeah, he looks so ‘green with envy’ when he’s with Ellen and Kate’s with her paid escort.

Well, peanut1957, don’t know anything about Ellen except that with or without a degree she can spell. Advice is spelled with a ‘c’ and you spelled it not once but twice (count it, twice) with an ‘s’. So who needs some schooling now?

well Barbra….advice/advise is correct. It depends on if you are using it as a noun or a verb.Maybe you shouldn’t be attacking Peanut on a personal level just because you don’t agree with her opinion.
