Jon Gosselin is the father of the twins and sextuplets featured on the TLC network show "Jon & Kate Plus 8." He is known primarily for being a jackass and wearing too much Ed Hardy merchandise.
After having twins with his now ex-wife, Kate, Jon Gosselin reportedly did not want to have another child. Kate persuaded him to have one more which ended up as sextuplets. This is not unlike when you told your roommate that it was cool if his friend crashed on your couch for the night but then the friend brought along five more drunken degenerates to join the party. Either way, you're spending a lot of time cleaning up the house after individuals who cannot control their gag reflex or bladder.
Discovery Health discovered the lucky couple and after doing a couple specials about surviving twins and sextuplets and signed them to a reality show format reminiscent of MTV's The Real World, complete with confessionals, screaming, crying, and vomiting. TLC then picked up the show from Discovery Health.
After two years and five seasons on television, Jon and Kate announced they were separating with plans to divorce in June of 2009.
Since divorcing his wife, Gosselin has proved to be unsuccessful at anything other than dating barely legal women and almost exclusively wearing Ed Hardy shirts, thereby ruining the brand for everyone except Dennis Rodman and frat boys. His first public romantic liason was Hailey Glassman, daughter of his ex-wife's plastic surgeon. Kate got a lift and, apparently, so did he. Jon's relationship with Glassman surprised many people due to the nine year age difference between the father of eight and the twenty-three year old. Their relationship was, unshockingly, short lived and the two split in December of 2009.
Following the demise of his relationship with the co-ed, Jon Gosselin went on to supposedly date Kate Major, "reporter" for The Star tabloid, although he denies they were ever involved. As of this writing, he is currently dating twenty-five year old Morgan Christie whom he met on a snowboarding trip in Park City, Utah. Christie is notable only in that she is a graduate of Emory University with plans to attend law school. The latter may come in handy as Jon Gosselin was dumped by his divorce lawyer in October of 2009. Although his divorce has since been finalized, Gosselin may need legal advice in the future if Ed Hardy ever decides to sue him for defamation of their brand because he never seems to wear anything else and really, who wants to be associated almost exclusively with Jon Gosselin?
The day after Christmas in 2009, Jon Gosselin returned home after spending Christmas with his kids to find that it had been burglarized. There was an estimated $100,000 worth of damage done to the New York apartment. A note signed by his ex, Hailey Glassman, was found alongside a note although the authorities doubt the validity of the note. Glassman, however, admits to having removed her old television from the apartment on the day of the burglary.
Luckily for Jon Gosselin, none of his kids have a pet bunny.
