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 ...

GO HARD (HAT) OR GO HOME: Hey, at least he's got a job in this economy and gave up on the whole reality star thing. Give Jon credit on both fronts.

Jon and Kate Gosselin are proud of troubled kids Alexis and Collin and hope that the duo can return to school later this year following their recent expulsion.

Kate is thrilled with the progress the pair have made while home schooled and Jon concedes that Kate has done a good job getting the two back on track.

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."

Jon Gosselin is just a regular working stiff nowadays.

Surprisingly, he couldn't be happier with that setup.

His ex-wife may make $250,000 per episode of Kate Plus 8, but Jon's regular job in sales marketing for Global Green Property Services suits him fine.

Jonny G: Regular Guy

GOOFBALL GOSSELIN: Jon's all smiles these days.

Jon has been trying to stop Kate, unsuccessfully, from putting his kids on TLC. He says they have behavior problems from his ex-wife's work demands.

As for his own work? He's doing the 9-to-5 thing.

"Jon's working for Global Green Property Services, which helps properties become more environmentally friendly," an insider tells Life & Style.

Jon Gosselin really doesn't want his kids on TV anymore.

Some have questioned his motives, but he seems intent on living a normal life these days and for his eight offspring to experience the same thing.

That said, he went to court to stop Kate Gosselin from dragging them to Australia, but was denied by a judge because the excursion is work related.

K to tha G

Once again, Jon and Kate don't see eye to eye.

The same judge allowed Kate Gosselin to film her spin-off reality TV show, Kate Plus 8, on TLC in the first place, despite vehement objections by Jon.

“This was yet another slap in the face for Jon because he did not want the kids to go to Australia," a source close to Jon Gosselin told Radar Online.

“But the judge ruled that because it was for work it was okay. Jon had plans with the kids. Now he won't see them until they return in mid-January."

Jon Gosselin is loving his newfound "normalcy," or whatever you'd call his version of it. As we reported last week, he just got a regular job - one he loves.

"On his first day of work, he just loved it. He felt weird that everyone knew who he was. But they didn't talk about it, it's a trust issue," a source said.

Tooling Around

His gig is in his pre-TLC field: "The job is IT-based online marketing. He solves problems, teaches people to solve their problems. He really enjoys it."

JOE SCHMOE: Jon Gosselin is relishing his new role.

A source says that while Jon is often recognized by clients, most folks are now accepting him for who he is as he's "trying to start his life again."

"He lost everything. There were so many things he had to face because not a lot of people in the world who could relate to what he was facing."

"He had eight kids at 27-years-old.  He was on a reality show, he was in the tabloids and he got divorced. It was a lot to deal with all at once."

"He did a lot of stupid things."

That he did. Amazingly, it looks like those days are - dare we say it - starting to fade, with a regular life and the right priorities in their place?

First the rage issues and now this. They're just six years old, but the Gosselin kids are accused of playing Grinch and spoiling Christmas at school.

"The kids don't believe in Santa Claus, and they're telling other kids at school that there is no Santa Claus," a close friend of the family said.

The Great Kate Gosselin

Children as young as six were told that "your parents are lying to you," causing Kate and Jon Gosselin to receive calls from stunned parents.

Just because Kate's hair is whack doesn't mean you have to out Santa.

"Jon has received angry phone calls from parents because the children actually told others that 'your parents are lying to you,'" the insider said.

Hey, at least the dude's got a job now ... cut him some slack.

Denying a report that two of her eight children were expelled from school, even though they were Kate this week admitted their anger issues.

Talk about an early Christmas miracle!

Apparently Jon Gosselin has a job. One that does not involve being a douche. Well, at least not on TLC. We know, we're as surprised as you are here.

What a Complete Tool

An IT guy before Jon & Kate Plus 8 took off, he's back in the tech field. The balding, Ed Hardy-wearing seducer of mediocre girls has come full circle.

A GREAT CATCH: How could any employer resist this man?

"Jon is back at work at a normal job not in media or entertainment," the source says. "He's working in technology, which he did before the show."

As for the ongoing shenanigans of Kate Gosselin, including her appearance on the Today show in which she said she was still awaiting an apology?

Dude just doesn't care!
