If you’ve been a regular reader of this blog then you know that over the past few months I’ve stood firmly in the “Team Jon” column in the battle between Jon and Kate Gosselin. He still seemed like the loving, caring dad that he had always been, and I believed him- hook, line and sinker when he looked into the camera and said he never cheated on his wife. I really thought that maybe he just wasn’t the brightest guy and got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Look, I live in Hollywood, I see the way the paparazzi work, and I see the way pictures can sometimes be taken out of context. I also thought that there was no way he would be stupid enough to cheat with camera crews following him around all the time. He really had me going; at least until I saw the pictures of him walking hand in hand with his new girlfriend in St. Tropez this weekend.
Really Jon-are you kidding me?! This isn’t even the woman you were being accused of cheating with to begin with- this is a new girl! And to add insult to what I am sure is a great injury to your entire family, she is the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon; seriously?!
Jon, you really let me down; I believed you. I am not saying that you can’t have a girlfriend; you are legally separated, you are allowed to date. Here’s the thing though. Like it or not you are a public figure now, you will never be a private citizen again. For better or worse you are a celebrity and have paparazzi following you everywhere. You have 8 children- remember them? They will grow up and use the Internet and see these pictures. It’s called tact, Jon. Use some.
For more on Jon's trip to St. Tropez with his new girlfriend and much more tune in to Showbiz Tonight – 11PM Eastern and Pacific on HLN- Don't miss it!
