Speaking with People about the state of her relationship with her ex these days, Kate Gosselin definitely did not bash the hell out of Jon!

Hey, considering how things ended between them and the way their war of words and custody played out, neutral is a very positive step.

"It's gotten more peaceful, which is good," Kate said. "He's working now, which is great. He has somewhere else to put his attention."

Although Kate considers her parenting skills "very different" from those of Jon Gosselin, she believes whatever he's doing is getting it done.

"The kids enjoy spending time with him," she says.

"They wish he would see them more, but as long as they come home happy – and more or less they do – I'm okay with that, so that's good."

Of course, she's not exactly pining for Jon.

"I want somebody who is older, at least in their 40s," Kate says. "I can't be bothered with these little boys." Ohhh, couldn't resist, could you?!

Their rough patched turned into an all-out war and a divorce.

Until now, Kate had refused to pay the fee, instead doing the obvious - blaming Jon. The judge says that defense is no longer gonna cut it.

OLD TIMES: The love and hair seen here are long gone.

Happy birthday to the sextuplets of Jon and Kate Gosselin!

Naturally, one of the two birthday parties Kate Gosselin will throw for the kids will be for the benefit of the TLC cameras for airing on Kate Plus Eight.

The second will be at home. No word if she will invite Jon Gosselin to that one, but they've actually gotten along better lately, so here's hoping.

In any case, happy birthday to six adorable youngsters ...

Kids. They grow up so fast.

Needless to say, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel have not had your standard upbringing. Hopefully things mellow out in the coming years.

Jon Gosselin basically felt his marriage to Kate was a giant mind f--k. Now the duo's former marriage counselors say she's screwing with them as well.

Creative Energy Options of Pennsylvania claims she never forked over more than $10,000 she owes for services in 2009. Talk about commitment issues!

Right? Hello, is this thing on? Anyone out there?

Did Kate stiff Jon AND people who tried to help her work it with Jon?

A company called filed a lawsuit against Kate, claiming back in 2009, she requested one of their marriage counselors to "fly to Los Angeles, Ca., to perform marriage counseling, then refused to pay for services or travel fees."

Dr. Sylvia Lafair, the president of C.E.O., says she's reached out to Kate several times in hopes of receiving their payment but she never produced a check.

"There are commitments that people make," she says, "and they should be followed through." Well, ideally yes, but you know how these things work out ...

Despite reports that she still pines for Jon, Kate Gosselin says she's looking for someone new and is about ready to get back into the dating world.

"I'm kind of out-ish, sort of," the Kate Plus 8 star said. "You never really picture yourself back in that scene after you're done with it in your 20s."

"But I'm trying to be a little more open-minded now," Kate added. "If there's anybody out there that wants to deal with us, that would be good."

JON & KATE: On the same page, albeit not together.

It's not like the mother of eight, who has gone through personal and media hell and back over the last few years, hasn't come a long way, though.

"I'm encouraging the kids to enjoy their time with him," Kate says, referring to ex-hubby Jon, who she's a lot kinder to in public comments lately.

Kate, who just celebrated her 36th birthday last week, says that when it comes to her ex, she's "keeping communication as positive as possible."

Not exactly a convincing, heartwarming statement, but ... baby steps.

They fought and fought. They split and traded barbs in the press. He paraded around with a bunch of mediocre girls, then faded into relative obscurity.

After all that, Kate Gosselin misses her ex, Jon.

The demise of Jon and Kate's volatile and fertile marriage was one of the more epic celebrity splits of recent years ... but is there still a glimmer of hope?

Jon may not care. He's happily out of the limelight, working a 9/5 construction job and supposedly so in love with girlfriend Ellen Ross. But Kate still misses her ex.

OK Magazine says as much, so it must be true, right?

"Friends" say she’s lost without him, professionally and personally, struggling with her mass motherhood situation and a show floundering sans Jon Gosselin.

“He was her whipping boy,” says a pal, “but also her best friend. Yes, things were very toxic between them, but there was at least some sort of camaraderie.”

Every day, Jon Gosselin gets out of bed, shakes off the cobwebs, puts on a hard hat and heads to a job site, laying down solar panels with the crew.

His wage: $35 an hour.

Douche Personified

Assuming he logs 40-hour weeks, that amounts to $1,400/week and an annual salary of $72,800. Not too shabby for the Pennsylvania product.

Until you consider that he used to earn $75,000 per episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, or that he has EIGHT kids to support. Then it's less impressive.

Also not impressive these days? Jon's extra weight.

Despite the hard physical work, and toning down his party boy behavior, a source reports that he's put on pounds: "He has an inner tube again!"

Maybe that's because of his after-work habits with girlfriend Ellen Ross. A typical evening: Eating "cheap takeout and watching Jersey Shore."

Sounds like fun. Although a source says "her yappy dogs pee on his stuff."

That kind of sucks. But it can happen when you're Joe Schmoe.

In a recent interview, Kate Gosselin said she will never say a bad word publicly about her ex Jon, as he will always be the father of her children.

That doesn't mean she'll get back together with him, however.

A deluge of recent celebrity gossip reports have suggested Kate and Jon Gosselin, who have been on much better terms lately, might reconcile.

Not the case, says a source close to Kate.

  • Dancer with Stars

"There is absolutely no chance of a reconciliation. They remain civil for the sake of the kids, but that's it," said the insider. "It's frustrating for Kate that people keep making stories up. Things are better but they have both moved on."

Jon has been dating Ellen Ross for the better part of a year and seems quite content living a normal life, working 9-to-5 installing solar panels.

As for Kate, she's single and has no qualms about it.

"Kate wants nothing more than to be seen in a completely different light than Jon is viewed," says the source. "Obviously he is the father of her children and that won't change, but she is feeling very happy about her decisions and situation."

Jon Gosselin is just your average, blue-collar Joe these days.

These amazing pictures obtained by TMZ show the former reality slob on the job - installing solar panels on the roof of a storage building - earlier this week.

Guy was such a waste of space, it's nice to see him make the planet a nicer one with Green Pointe Energy, a Pennsylvania renewable energy company.

Guess that sales and marketing gig didn't pan out ...

Recalcitrant Collin and Alexis were expelled from their private Pennsylvania school last year after they were allegedly abusive to other children ate school.

Those were the days ...

Jon and Kate are still at odds over many things - namely Kate's global adventures with the kids - but both believe the home-schooling is ready to end.

“Kate is very proud of the way the home schooling has gone – both Alexis and Collin argue less and understand what they did wrong," says a source.

“Jon is also pleased with what Kate has done to get the kids back on track academically and would love them back to school with the rest of the kids."
