Following on from my Snooki post, another former reality tv “star,” Jon Gosselin, of John and Kate Plus 8 fame, seems to be looking for
love advice in all the wrong places.
“I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me,” he says, referring to the steady stream of women he dated after their split.
Gosselin, 35, moved back to Berks County, Pa., in 2011 after two years of bouncing around the country. He recently took a new job as director of sales and promotions for Gameface Int. and started dating single mom Liz Jannetta, 27. Time – and therapy – has given him a different perspective on things, he says.
“I used to talk to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Michael Jackson’s rabbi) a lot when I lived in New York,” he says. “He said, ‘There are two things you can do with your fame – sell out or take it and use it for good.’ I didn’t grasp that at the time.”
Shmuley telling someone not to sell out is like Mel Gibson telling someone not to hate Jews.
