Hi, My Name’s Jon Gosselin. (Hi, Jon!) And I’m a Fame-aholic.

1257170401_jon-gosselin-290.jpgHere are three reasons to suspect that you’re a fame-a-holic. One, your life is a disaster. Two, even when you come to terms with your mistakes and apologize to those you’ve hurt, you have a microphone clipped to your lapel. Three, you have turned your life over to your spiritual counselor, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.
Yesterday Jon Gosselin, erstwhile star of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ finally admitted he had a fame problem at a strange self-denunciation ceremony held at Boteach’s West Side synagogue. “I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel peace-prize winner,” he told the special gathering, hosted by Boteach. “I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC.”
But Gosselin has a way a to go before anyone would call him truly in recovery. Though he swore off dating his girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, until his divorce from Kate was final and recognized that he had embarrassed his wife publicly, it’s a bad sign that Gosselin can’t seem to get off-camera. Instead of being guided by what his celebrity rabbi calls “the moral obligations inherent in celebrity,” Gosselin might try a different sponsor to help him into anonimity. Paging Kevin Federline?

    And he did this in public because ? I like Rabbi Shmuley, but Jon I don’t trust an inch. HOwever, I do not have to. Jon doesn’t report to me, his after life doesn’t depend on my response to him and to his response to God, but it does depend on GOD, and hopefully he has confessed, in private, sincerely confessed to GOD!
    We will have an idea of his sincerity when we see how he behaves. There isn’t much he can do and have it be hidden or in private. Someone is always watching! The truth will out!

    Unfortunately, without someone who has their values in order(Kate)Jon is someone who truly doesnt know who he is. His actions, once he left the nest Kate built, tells us that. He’s a kid without a fully developed ego, who is now searching for who he really is. I suppose that was the reason Kate treated him like one of the other kids..he was one of the other kids.
    I loved this family as if they were part of my own. I would love Jon to see the pain he has caused both Kate and his family, and then take full responsibility for it. Maybe then he can become the man, his children need to see. As for Kate, I believe she learned her part in this play. And that she would take him back in a heartbeat, once he shows some reason and responsibility.

    Jon, I really would like to say that there is redeeming quality in you, but a man who will stand before God and promise to love a woman for all eternity and less than 5 months later walk away from her? You are a weekend dad by choice, you have a mistress by choice. She (Haley) can never live in total trust in you, you have already cheated on one wife. There again, what have you got in her? She cheated with a married man, what is to say she won’t do that again? You had a good woman, one who really needed you to be the head of the household. I ask God to have mercy on those kids you were entrusted to raise, the wife you promised to stand by until death do you part, and you-the one you have fooled the worst.
