Jon Gosselin gets nervous, wants to halt divorce, remains loathsome
Via InTouch Weekly:
"When Jon Gosselin heard that his estranged wife, Kate, had a breakdown during the taping of a TV pilot in September, he knew he was responsible for her suffering. In addition to flaunting his relationship with his new girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and partying at clubs all over the country surrounded by scantily clad women, Jon went on ABC's Primetime recently and said he "despised" the mother of his eight children. "He woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and didn't like the reflection," Jon's attorney, Mark Jay Heller, tells In Touch. "He realized he'd made some bad choices." Then he called Duh Magazine and pointed out water is wet and Clive Owen is hot and waffles are delicious. Jon and Kate were due to be officially divorced by the end of November -- but now he claims he's had a serious change of heart. And why would that be? Could it be because his ass was dropped from the show yesterday and he's seeing his one source of income dwindle? All those strippers and ugly t-shirts don't come cheap. "I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated [on June 22]," Jon tells In Touch exclusively. "I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon." Don't be so hard on yourself. Your kids are still young. They won't remember daddy pawing the babysitter. Shockingly, today, Jon submitted a document to a Pennsylvania court-approved arbitrator, which he hopes will suspend his split with Kate for 90 days. He explains, "This will enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication. I hope that she will be as receptive and enthusiastic as I am to do what is best for our family." Don't do it, Kate. Get yourself another ugly haircut or a hot boyfriend instead. He also pleaded with her to set aside their anger so they can start interacting amicably. "I would like to get back with Kate as a partner in parenting," Jon tells In Touch. "Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. Oh, perhaps just a tad more. That's why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family monetarily. And really, mainly, benefit me -- not destroy it." Jon claims he's done sowing his wild oats and grown disenchanted with his playboy lifestyle. Jon believes that his womanizing was a result of being dumped by Kate, who told him it was over in October 2008 before filing for divorce. "When Kate broke up with me, I begged her to go with me to counseling," he says. "She was totally against it. I think I was reacting to the pain I have been suffering as a result of Kate's rejection of me." And also, I had a distant father and sometimes other kids in the school yard wouldn't play with me and sometimes I didn't have new sneakers and then there was the time when I had to get a job after school and also ... Heller insists that Jon wants the document to be a sort of peace treaty: "He is hoping to inspire his wife to become less rigid, inflexible and controlling and open up. So, maybe, using those words publicly was not the best thing you could have done for your client. What do you think? In hindsight? Not a good idea, really. We're hoping Jon and Kate can sit down together and start exploring what to do about their situation. Once they do that, the rest will fall into place."
