While selling lemonade to raise money for a local fire department, Jon Gosselin has said he wants out of Jon & Kate Plus 8, according to Us Magazine:
“I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I’m living. This is 24/7,” he told Usmagazine.com outside his $1.1 million Pennsylvania home Monday. “I don’t even want to do taping for the show anymore.”
But Gosselin says he’s stuck filming and doing promotional appearances to make as much money as possible. (A source also tells the current issue of Us Weekly that he’s “suspicious” Kate is hiding cash ahead of their divorce proceedings. They make an estimated $75,000 per episode.)
“I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work,” he told Us.
While Jon’s worried about Kate hiding money, she’s worried about him pissing it away on BMWs and 22-year-old vagina. RadarOnline reports:
Jon has taken girlfriend Hailey Glassman to France, spent a week in The Hamptons with Kate Major, bought a BMW, traded it back in, shopped for a Porsche for Hailey, rented an expensive apartment in New York and indulged in other cash-burning activities.
The big problem, according to Kate sources, is the soon to be ex wife thinks the cash is all going to fuel Jon’s Suddenly Single lifestyle and not being put away for the kids.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 is not the couple’s only source of income. They have books and speaking engagements but with divorce suddenly looming, that may not be as lucrative in the future.
Of course, if push comes to shove, it’s not like they couldn’t just open a sweatshop in the basement. And before everyone gets bent out of shape, those kids need to learn porcupine haircuts and ATVs don’t grow on trees. Now make Mommy some wallets, freeloaders.
