Jon Gosselin was on fire with ABC’s Chris Cuomo last night during the Primetime special, “Family Secrets,” and half the time I didn’t know whose side to believe. No, I am not talking about being on Jon or Kate’s side- I am talking about which side of Jon!
Was it me or did anyone else feel like they were watching two completely different people last night? They had two very distinct personalities- I am going to call them JBK and JAK. You will see why below.
JBK- or Jon before Kate launched her media offensive against him: I saw JBK as a loving, caring father. I wanted to cry when he talked about looking at old pictures of his twins and wondering if maybe he should have hugged and kissed them more. His face actually lit up when speaking about each of his kids; describing their personalities for Chris. I believe that his love for them is genuine. We all watched him care for those children while Kate was away on her book tours and making public appearances- there is no question that he is a devoted father that is worried about how this is affecting them.
Which brings us to the second Jon- because for a guy who is so concerned about his children’s well being, how in the world could he go on television and say some of the things that he said?
JAK- or Jon after Kate's years of verbal abuse. Look, Jon, I get it, you had it rough. She cut you off from your family; she lambasted you in public; she emasculated you in front of America. Enough is enough, it was time for the marriage to be over, clearly it was for the best. Obviously, judging by the vitriol you exhibited in that interview, being married to Kate would NOT HAVE BEEN in the best interest of the children so good for you for getting out. But Jon, Jon, Jon… she is the mother of your EIGHT children. Be careful what you say. I would not go on national television and say things like “I despise that woman” and “I love Hailey more than I ever loved Kate”; that just isn’t right in my book.
I am a little confused over who to cheer for. I have lost sight of who the real Jon Gosselin is- I am not sure that even he knows anymore. So please, will the real Jon please stand up?
