Deep Analysis of Jon's ParentDish Manifesto: Question #18

Hopefully by now, someone with some basic legal expertise has explained to Jon that he's not being sued for talking his kids off the air. He is being sued for willfully breaching the terms of his TLC contract, which he everso wisely seems to admit in his answer to Question #18.

I also didn't think Jon used enough cliches in this answer. "Stepping up to the plate" and "God is on my side" is always good but there's nothing like "taking one for the Gipper", "come hell or high water", "Tomorrow is another day", or "Attica! Attica! Attica!" to really hammer home the point (or lack thereof).

And lemme just tell ya: when you're up against Williams & Connelly, you'll need God on your side. I've long wondered whether God has a special soft spot for pot-smoking, married daddies with multiple girlfriends (plural). Twill be a fun trial. I'm gonna pray it's televised.

Question #18:

PD: Some people would say you should've thought of that a long time ago.

JG: I always wanted to take the kids off the air but we would've been breaching the contract. I couldn't say that on the air because we would've been sued. They tried to fire me before I fired them. I'm stepping up to the plate. Whatever they want to do to me. Sue me. Send me to jail. I'm taking my kids off the air. What judge will say, 'Okay, your kids must be on film'? I know how it works. I'm not afraid of TLC now. God is on my side. TLC would say, 'You can't say this,' and now I'm just unleashing it.

INF DailyIs it real, or is it more spin?

Jon Gosselin is once again chastising his own behavior publicly and vowing to be a better person. And this time he says he’s going to do it with the help of a rabbi!

Jon, who just days ago stood on the steps of the Montgomery County, PA courthouse with his lawyer Mark Heller and attacked wife Kate while cameras rolled, says he is now in counseling to reconnect with his spirituality. He also pledges to make “things right” with Kate and their eight children.

He started his mea culpa by denying rumors he was going to appear in a reality show with Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman.

"I am troubled to learn that the media has accepted as true the scurrilous rumor that I would appear in a reality television program with Nadya Suleman. This is utterly false. I do however accept that some of my previous actions have in some way lent credence to such outrageous stories," Jon said in a statement.

Gosselin also admits that his behavior over the last few months have been less than exemplary and he’s turned to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

"I am well aware that my behavior over the past few months has not always reflected my personal and religious values,” he added. "I further accept that I have allowed myself to become somewhat severed from my own moral anchor and be carried away by the challenges of fame. It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling. with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect. "I have always endeavored to be a loving father and a devoted parent who serves as a moral exemplar to his eight children. That’s what my father, a children’s dentist who always extended himself to his poorest patients, was to me. “My father was my inspiration and moral compass. I intend to serve the same role for my own children by taking responsibility for my errors and making right any pain I have caused to those I love.”

On Monday he stood by – sometimes chiming in – as his lawyer called Kate Gosselin the “woman who lived in a shoe” and then went on a long, rambling, bitter anecdote about Kate living in a glass house and throwing stones that would bounce back. Heller and Jon were complaining that Kate was not at a court hearing, even though she wasn’t required to be.

Despite Jon’s new-found spirituality there’s no sign that he’s dumping Heller.

Jon’s path to atonement will begin on Sunday when he will participate in a forum at New York’s West Side Synagogue where he will publicly apologize to those he has hurt.

"I wish for the public to know my regret at having, at times, betrayed the moral principles that have always guided me. This forum will also allow me to illustrate the further steps I am determined to take to regain the trust and confidence of loved ones as well as the public who have watched me over the years, together with Kate, raise our eight beautiful children."

He also discussed the scrutiny he is under and says some of his behavior has been growing pains as he adjusts to the attention, which he admits he at times went after. As for his estranged wife Kate, he just wants to make “things right”: "I am committed to making things right with Kate and especially my children. I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself."

"I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself."

Step One:
STFU!!! Quit talking to the media and inviting more scrutiny in your family's life.

Step Two:
Dump the greasy lawyer, the loser friend, and the 22-year-old twit.

Step Three:
Move back to Penn. to be closer to your kids whom you "love."

Step Four:
Quit acting like a 19-year-old frat boy on spring break. Become that "moral compass" but showing more morals than a horny alley cat.

Step Five:
Get a job.

If you complete all of the above steps, you may be putting a dent in "making things right" with you family.


Make things right Jon and STFU said...

To Funnier...

Here! Here! And WELL SAID! But for some reason I doubt Jon will be able to get through even step one. I hope he proves me wrong.

Funnier, you should be Jon's PR agent. You just gave him the best advice and did not even charge him like the Heller's overcharge him for their douche direction.
