Kate Gosselin has gotten a huge apology from her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, for the way he treated her when their marriage broke down. Tabloids printed comments he made about Kate being so focused on staying on TV that she sacrificed what was good for their eight kids. Now the 35-year-old father is sorry for how he handled everything with the mother of his children during such a volatile time. He went to People magazine and gave the best answers as to why he was so hostile towards his ex-wife.
“I married at 22 and for 10 years I never went out,” Jon said. “I reverted back to being 23. I didn’t realize how famous I was.”
In the apology he issued to Kate Gosselin, he admitted his conduct wasn’t something he would have liked if he were in her shoes.
“I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me.” he said.
When it came to how they communicated, Jon Gosselin puts the blame on himself for being distant and shutting down.
“I was passive-aggressive,” he continued. “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.”
It’s all behind them now and he and Kate get along well when it comes to their children.
Jon said, “Now Kate and I communicate great. It’s parenting together but in separate locations. She’s a great mother.”
He gave an example of how they handle a problem with one of the kids.
“I’ll call [Kate] up and say, ‘Mady’s sick. What do I do?’ And she’ll tell me. She’s a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles.”
Jon Gosselin isn’t ruling out doing reality TV again. While he was the one opposed to the idea when he and Kate divorce in 2009, he’s changed his view a lot on things. Looks like both Jon and Kate Gosselin are aiming to do more TV.
