An apologetic, introspective Jon Gosselin says he and Kate are getting along well now, and he can't believe how he acted after they broke up ... yes, seriously!

"I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me," he says.

Referring to the parade of women he dated right after they split, and to his preening for attention from celebrity news sites and TV stations, Jon is ashamed.

He accepts his share of responsibility and then some, saying: "I was passive-aggressive. Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating."

At least nowadays, he says he and Kate Gosselin are on good terms.

"I'll call [Kate] up and say, 'Mady's sick. What do I do?' And she'll tell me," he says. "She's a great Mom. We just have different parenting styles."

Jon Gosselin, 35, is back in Berks County, Pa., living close to Kate, who also opened up recently and said that after two years, she's made peace with Jon.

Having bounced around jobs, he recently took one as director of sales and promotions for Gameface Int. and started dating single mom Liz Jannetta, 27.

Time and counseling have helped him get a grip, he tells People.

"There are two things you can do with your fame – sell out or take it and use it for good ... I didn't grasp that at the time [of the divorce]," Jon notes. 

Who is this guy and what did he do with Jon Gosselin??

Are the years of public feuding between Jon and Kate Gosselin finally a thing of the past? She certainly hinted as much on the Today show yesterday.

Kate, who's still being stalked by some freak, told Ann Curry that she and her ex have made peace and are working together to raise their children.

"I can honestly say it's more peaceful than it's ever been," said the 37-year-old. "I feel that a really big weight has been lifted off my shoulders."

Despite all the bad blood - just last month, she hammered Jon for flaking on child support - Kate had nothing but praise for him this time around.

"He's really been positive and more available and it's just less stressful. I feel like he's been working with me more, and the kids notice," she said.

"And that's good. Because I've always just wanted that peace, not just for me, but for them and we're finally to a point where it's happening.”

To think, all the time and energy that Kate spent dragging Jon's name through the mud on TV and Twitter can now be saved for her huge brood.

“I can take that emotional energy that was so wasted in that area and put it back towards the kids and taking care of them," she told Curry.

A novel concept. Let's just hope it lasts more than a week.

Jon Gosselin is many things: a loser. A douchebag. An attention-starved idiot with bad taste in women.

But he's not a deadbeat dad, at least not according to the former reality star himself.

Following a report that claimed Gosselin owed his awful ex-wife $3,557.06 in child support, the father of eight has taken to Twitter and shot down this rumor, setting the record straight via some basic accounting.

Smiling Jon Gosselin

"There is no story, I pay CS," Jon wrote. "The state site is my recurring balance, so guess what, it will always be there. Every month. Paid in full... Great digging up a story about nothing. Find something else to write a story about. I pay my water bill too, why don't you make that a story. Morons."

Okay, fine. In this case, point Jon Gosselin. But have you seen the disaster this guy was married to for many years? And had sex with at least twice? Dude is still way behind on the scorecard.

Jon Gosselin has fallen behind on his child support payments to his ex-wife Kate Gosselin again, according to a tabloid report, to the tune of $3,557.06.

That's far less than the amount Levi Johnston is accused of owing for just one child, but it's enough to mean legal consequences for Jon just the same.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star has eight kids he is required to support by law, and the Pennsylvania Dept. of Child Welfare is calling him out.

Gosselin Style

Kate Gosselin seemed blindsided by the fact that Jon was going to go back to court for non-payment of child support after a Twitter follower alerted her.

“I don't know if he's going to court but wouldn't surprise me.... How do you know this stuff?!?” she wrote but quickly stopped engaging the follower:

“Woah....I'm not allowed to talk about orders from the court.…"

Probably smart. Since TLC canned their show, Kate has been working as a blogger for CouponCabin (dot) com while Jon has been working construction.

Their contentious relationship often involves slamming each other on Twitter, but if Jon really does owe back child support, a real battle could erupt.

Jon Gosselin says he is loving life these days as a single dad. That's good, we suppose. Better than hating it, since it's the current state of affairs either way!

Jon recently split from girlfriend Ellen Ross, but unlike sad, lonely Kate Gosselin, he’s moving forward with his held head high, embracing his single status.

“I am doing great, moving on with my life, focusing on my kids and work,” he told Star.

“I’m in a much better place in my life ... right now, I’m just hanging out with friends, meeting new people, working and trying to focus on my kids."

“Being a single dad with no interruptions has really brought me closer to my children: Truthfully, I feel it has improved my self-awareness and well-being.”

Jon Gosselin said his eight children are flourishing, too.

Jon Gosselin and Ellen Ross have split up after nearly two years together.

It's unclear exactly why the ex-husband of Kate Gosselin split with his lady friend, but reports say Ellen's distaste for the media was the final straw.

"Ellen didn't like the media attention and other things that came with the relationship," a source said. "That's one of the main reasons they broke up."

Wait ... we still pay attention to Jon Gosselin? Besides right now? Who knew!

According to an insider, the twosome broke up more than a week ago, but it wasn't until Friday that Jon Gosselin confirmed the breakup on Twitter:

"Recently, after much thought and discussion, Ellen and I have decided to end our relationship. It was a mutual decision and we are both happy."

"We will remain best friends. We both plan to move forward and focus on our separate lives. We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time."

So far, no word from Ellen Ross personally, except a denial earlier this week that was debunked when Jon spilled the beans on Twitter. Whoops.

William Blankinship, a TV editor who worked on TLC's Jon and Kate Plus 8 and other family-oriented reality TV, was arrested last week on child porn charges.

Blankinship, 56, has been charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor, meaning he possessed photos and/or video of a minor engaged in sexual activity.

A subcontractor for Figure 8 Films, Blankenship edited such TLC shows as Jon and Kate Plus 8, its spinoff Kate Plus 8, 17 Kids and Counting and Table for 12.

No bond has been set for the accused; he is likely "under the authority of the U.S. Marshals" until trial, a spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Prisons said.

His employer wasted no time taking action. "Upon learning of the shocking allegations his employment was terminated," Figure 8 films said in a statement.

Fortunately, Blankinship was never in contact with the famous eight Gosselin kids, the 17 Duggar offspring or any other of TLC's stars, according to reports.

"At no time was this man ever in the field or in direct contact with any of the talent for any of our productions," the network said in its own statement.

Jon Gosselin is speaking out in a (mercifully) rare interview, telling Rumor Fix exactly how he feels about ex-wife Kate and life in general nowadays.

His advice for his ex, who recently complained about life? “Reality TV is not a career. Get back to a normal life - a simple life. Provide for your family.”

Ouch, that's gotta hurt, Kate!

Jon, who gave up TV and is enjoying work as a computer support engineer, is responding to Kate Gosselin whining about the cancellation of her show.

“I’m really scared,” she said after Kate Plus 8 was axed. While Kate says she is “freaking out” about her financial future, Jon is more optimistic:

“Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids – people work normal jobs."

"Things work out," he adds. "Everything is possible. I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house.”

BLAM. As always, we gotta ask ...

Kate Gosselin is surely CRUSHED that Kate Plus 8 got canceled and her 15 minutes seem to be winding down, but there's one thing she does NOT miss.

That thing is Jon Gosselin.

"I know that I'm glad to be divorced and on my own," she says, addressing her ex in a clip from one of the show's final episodes, airing Monday.

"I wouldn't change my marriage. I have eight awesome kids that I would not change," Kate adds. "But people certainly can change and if they're not who you thought they were and if they're not for you, you move on. And I have."

She has no problem seeing Jon move on. Or not. Honey Badger Kate don't care!

"I don't care if his girlfriends change weekly, yearly, monthly," Gosselin says in the clip. "I don't give it a second thought ... more power to him."

"Unless I have to deal with him with the kids, I don't [deal with him], which is good because it keeps the peace," she says. "I've always emailed, I've called or texted, whatever – just about the kids, the best for the kids."

We gotta ask: Who sucks more?

Jon Gosselin is not exactly sad that TLC canceled Kate Plus 8.

On the contrary, he is "very relieved" that his kids will be finally away from cameras, he tells Radar Online. "I hope they can have more private family moments.

"I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children."

Jon Gosselin: What a Guy

Jon says he's long advocated for its cancellation and the kids getting "attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."

"I have no clue what her next move is," Jon said of Kate. "I hope she dedicates more time to the kids. I wish her the best as she goes forward."

"Contracts have to end at some point," he said of TLC's decision. "I think everything ran its course and it was time to come to an end anyways."
