Believe it or not, Jon and Kate Gosselin finalized their divorce all the way back in 2009. Yet the two, who became famous as a part of the TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 are still entrenched in each other’s lives as they work together to raise their eight children. So it comes as no surprise that Jon had a few things to say about his ex-wife Kate’s new show called Kate Plus Date, which is set to premiere this June.
“To each his own and whatever keeps the lights on,” Jon said in a new interview with HLN’s Morning Express with Robin Meade. “I don’t know. I just work a normal job, so I haven’t really been on reality TV in about 10 years.”
Indeed, Jon now works as a DJ, which generally keeps him out of most of the limelight.
Ultimately, regarding the new show, Jon says that “if (Kate) chooses to do that, she chooses to do it.”
Currently, two of their eight children, Hannah and Collin, live with Jon and his girlfriend, and therefore, will not be on Kate’s new show. Jon and Kate’s other children, including Joel, Aaden, Leah, Alexis, Madelyn, and Cara are primarily being raised by Kate in her own home.
