Jon Gosselin Plays While Kate Gosselin Shops

June 9th, 2009 // 19 Comments

Poor, poor Jon Gosselin. As if he doesn’t have enough to worry about, he now has animal rights activists on his tail. Not for anything he has done, but what his pesky brood does to his two dogs.

In a recent interview with People, Gosselin apparently intended to sing the praises of the German shepherds, Shoka and Nala, by saying that they put up with a lot from the eight Gosselin children (8-year-old twins and 5-year-old sextuplets). “Those kids beat them up, climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them, drag them around and everything you can imagine not to do to an animal, they’ve done.”

The Humane Society got wind of this after receiving complaints from concerned animal activists. So Jon issued a statement:

“I’d like to set the record straight,” he said. “We understand the responsibilities of being good dog owners. Whenever my kids are with Shoka and Nala, everyone is carefully supervised to ensure that no one — dog or child — is injured. Shoka and Nala are loyal companions who we consider members of our family. We would never do anything to hurt them, and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve.”

I bet Kate’s just loving this new little controversy.

    I can’t understand all the empathy for Jon when he clearly does no housework and doesn’t do much to take care of the kids. They have an army of nannies and other helpers to do all that.

    This guy DOESNT have a job, hasn’t had a job in years, and doesn’t qualify as a stay at home dad because he doesn’t do any housework.

    I find that really disgusting. His wife may not do any housework either but she is working it writing books, making appearances, trying to squeeze as much money out of this as possible. I think more highly of her.

    Hold on…you don’t get the empathy… he lives with the world’s most negative media whore and has 8 kids under the age of 6 – he’s the low rent brad pitt! what don’t you get!!

    Remy,

    Brad Pitt not only works but he is constantly on the move working on charitable causes. Although he does appear to be turning into an absentee father himself.

    My point is that Jon doesn’t deserve our empathy because he hasn’t held down a job for years and does next to nothing at home. He’s living off the gravy train that his children are providing to him. Which will eventually run out. This show will be gone by next year and so will the benefits.

    @American Dreamer

    Jon has had a job, his wife wanted him to quit to help around the house more. He isn’t a lowlife “stay at home father” who is too lazy to get a job, they decided together as a married couple (at the time) for him to quit his job. Maybe you should know what you are talking about before you say anything!

    Someone,

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!

    Kate begged someone to get Jon a job after the sextuplets were born and he ended up as an IT assistant working for the State of Pennyslvania and QUIT.

    THEN he got hired by a family friend who was a contractor and got FIRED by the contractor because he wasn’t doing the job.

    NOW he is is just staying at home where it has been clearly documented he does no house work or other practical work and pretty much just hangs out.

    Even if he does help out from time to time WHAT KIND OF EXAMPLE IS HE CREATING FOR HIS KIDS BY NOT WORKING?!?! I am the father of three young daughters and you can be damn well sure they would be demoralized if their mom and dad didn’t work like everyone else.

    Then of course this gravy train is going to come to an end sooner rather than later and then what? Jon is at the age where he should be developing a career. There are other people with quintuplets and sextuplets in america who all work.

    Grace,

    In response to your question, Kate’s outfit is appropriate for a woman who is looking to get her ass tapped.

    You sound like you haven’t had your ass tapped in a LONG time. We should exchange numbers. I might be of some assistance in that department.

  10. definitely not in the know.

    i think american dreamer must either be

    a. kate or jon, herself
    b. way to obsessed with these people’s lives.

  11. american dreamer

    Definitely not in the know,

    Interested in helping me tag team Grace? She really needs to unwind.

    @ american dreamer:

    Do your daughters/wife(?) know that you hang out on a gossip website offering to “tap” women?

    You don’t sound much better than Jon…

  13. Martiniman

    To Jon and Kate: Your “fame” minutes are ticking away – 15, 14, 13, 12…. so enjoy them!

    Kate’s outfit is just fine. Honestly, if a guy walked up in shorts and a tight t-shirt (or even no shirt), no one would say a word about it. If Kate were dressed like Bai Ling, that would be different. But a comfortable jean skirt and t-shirt is ok.

    As for Jon, hmmm….seems like a hen-pecked underachiever. I blame both of them — 50/50 — for the failure of this relationship. I feel for the kids, who are going to be the true victims of all this bad parenting and unhealthy media coverage.

    american dreamer is a guy?

    Reading it’s comments here, there, and everywhere, I was sure it was one of those angry, buttoned-up, knowitall hags with a boyfriend named B.O.B.
