He's living it up as America's most eligible bachelor, but Jon Gosselin says he would rather punch the ol' clock instead of appearing on a reality show.
"I wish I had a 9-to-5 job instead of the nightmare I'm living. This is 24/7," he said yesterday, outside the $1.1 million mansion that TLC built.
"I don't even want to do taping for the show anymore."
If TLC has its way, he may get his wish fairly soon.
For now, at least, poor Jon Gosselin is stuck filming Jon and Kate Plus 8 and making promotional appearances to make as much money as possible.
"I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work," he said, expecting us to feel sorry for his $75,000-per-episode salary.
He's also got to drop coin on Hailey Glassman and various other mediocre girls, don't forget. That amount just doesn't stretch as far as it used to.
Jon Gosselin wishes he could be a regular working stiff.
He's rumored to be in talks to star in his own reality show, but that's neither here nor there. Just feel sorry for him right now, dammit! He works so hard!
Later that day, Gosselin taped Jon & Kate Plus 8 with the kids at the Lower Heidelberg Fire Company in Berks County, Pa. The family threw a fund raising lemonade stand. Gosselin "smiled and posed with local young women."
In an apparent dig at celeb gossip reporters following him, he wore a t-shirt with the words "Lies, Lies, Lies." What is he trying to say, we wonder ...
Jon also wore his trademark douchebag earing and sunglasses.
