Jon Gosselin Owns Up to Douchebaggery, Claims to Care About Kids

by at . Comments

Hours after his lawyer painted him as a victim and helped shut down production on TLC's Kate Plus 8, Jon Gosselin sat with Larry King on CNN last night.

The attention-starved reality star claimed he was gonna quit the show before he was fired; and that his legal maneuvering to get it off the air has nothing at all to do with the fact he won't be receiving paychecks anymore from the program.

Anyone that believes these tales must also believe Robert Halderman was only looking out for David Letterman's best interests.

Here's a summary of what the douchebag known as Jon Gosselin had to say:

On the TLC series that made him famous: “It’s not healthy for my kids to be on the show. It’s my right as a parent and as a father of my kids to determine whether the show is good for my family. I don’t think it’s healthy for them because we’re going through a divorce right now. I don’t think it should be televised and I think my kids should be taken off the show.”

On changing who he is: “I had an epiphany one day. I looked in the mirror and I said, ‘I don’t want to be this person anymore.’”

On saying he despises Kate Gosselin: “I’ve made mistakes, I’ve learned form my mistakes, I regret things. I have to move forward... I really didn’t mean despise. I regret saying that word. I was very emotional... sometimes you just say things you can’t really mean.”
