Jon Gosselin: Spiritual Journeyman

Jon Gosselin is using the oldest trick in the book to cover up his ATV-banging ways: Finding religion. He spent Sunday evening with Rabbi Schmuley of Oprah fame and opened up about his transgressions and his new found lease on life. Via People:

On his celebrity status:

“I think I’m just misunderstood. I’m not a fame seeker. Everyday I look in the mirror and I wonder [why I’m famous]. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC.”

On his antics in the press:
“Half the stuff I’ve done, if I look at my moral compass, I shouldn’t have done. I know that but I did it anyway. It’s like fame canceled out conviction.”

On mending his relationship with Kate:
“I want to apologize to Kate in private. I’ll apologize to her for openly having relationships in the public eye. That was a huge mistake, because if she would’ve done that to me, I would have been extremely pissed off. Not because our relationship is over, it’s almost like a stab in the back. And now that I think about it, it was a very wrong thing to do. I definitely regret it.”

On Hailey Glassman:
“We decided not to take a break, just slow things down, until I get through my divorce and I know everything is settled and okay. I don’t want another failure in my relationships. I don’t want to make the same mistakes I made with Kate, with Hailey. I would just be repeating the pattern over again.”

So basically this is Jon’s cover for eventually crawling back to TLC and letting them film his kids in exchange for enough money to buy a Lamborghini with his face airbrushed on the door. Or “for the healing,” as it’ll be called in the press release.
