Would you take advice from a woman who willingly hooked up with Jon Gosselin? Like not someone who just slept with him when she was blacked out drunk, although that would be damning (and disappointing) enough, but someone who was with him for months and plans to marry him? Jon Gosselin’s current girlfriend, 24 year-old Ellen Ross, wants you to do just that and has started a blog where she doles out life strategies to people who ask her for help. This story is in the Enquirer, and sounds straight from Jon and Ellen, who probably wants some publicity for her website.
Reality TV dad Jon Gosselin’s galpal Ellen Ross has started her own advice column, dishing out advice on everything from how to manage pets – she has three Chihuahuas, a rat and a fish – to getting over a breakup.
Despite the fact that her main claim to fame is she’s dating a jobless and divorced father of eight, Ellen, 24, believes she has what it takes to dole out pearls of wisdom on her blog, ellenross.blogspot.com. In October, the Enquirer reported exclusively that Jon and the 5-foot-5 brunette… are already making wedding plans.
“Jon says he’s more in love with Ellen than he ever was with Kate,” divulged the source.
The two share an apartment in Reading, PA and stay at his ex wife Kate’s home when Jon has custody of the children.
Sources say Jon, 33, expects to provide for his new bride with proceeds from the tell-all memoir he’s writing.
And that’s probably a good thing.
Ellen says: “I am not looking for any money, fame or profit from this at all.”

I checked Ellen’s blog and it’s well written and can actually be helpful. She doesn’t have a self righteous tone, and some of her advice is good and thoughtful. She loves dogs and seems to know quite a bit about pets, and she has useful ideas for people’s personal problems. There’s something to be said about someone who starts an advice column, though. I think Lainey summed it up best in a story on Katherine Heigl where she called her “one of those ‘You Should’ kind of friends. You should do this, you should do that, I would do this, I would do that, she knows everything.”
This just makes it seem like Jon loves bossy women who take over and do everything for him so he doesn’t have to think. Kate Gosselin bugs the crap out of me and she definitely henpecked Jon, but he needed some serious ass kicking to get anything done. It looks like he’s getting his ass kicked by someone who truly enjoys telling him what to do. If only she could figure out the best way to help his poor kids.
