While Kate Gosselin is granting interviews to whichever outlets will help promote her “poor me, I’m just a working mom” tour, her ex husband Jon is up to his old tricks. Jon has reportedly hooked up with yet another gullible woman of means, except this one isn’t 23 like his last few hookups and is in her 40s. After getting kicked out of his last girlfriend’s house for spending all his time drinking beer and languishing on the couch, Jon has snared an older woman who he hopes will bankroll his “projects,” i.e. pay for him to sit on his ass and drink beer. If that fails, as it will eventually, he has a backup plan and is said to be begging TLC to give him his own reality show. Oh and there’s still that custody lawsuit he’s filed against his ex wife in a pitiful and transparent attempt to avoid paying child support and/or squeeze some cash out of her.
The dad of eight hasn’t had much luck finding work since he and TLC parted ways, and apparently his luck with women hasn’t been much better. The relationships he had when his divorce to Kate was being finalized have fallen apart.
Most recently, the girl he was living with in the L.A. area “threw him out,” according to a source close to Jon — “basically, at the same time that he filed the lawsuit against Kate” that requested an amendment to his alimony and child-support obligations.
Now, Jon is interested in another woman, one who can support him while he’s strapped for cash. “He has a new 40-something, Washington, D.C., love interest,” a Gosselin insider told Us Weekly. “She’s rich — and he’s hoping to have her back one of his projects.”
What that project is specifically is not certain. However, Us reports that Gosselin has been knocking on TLC’s door.
“He has been lobbying TLC to get a show of his own,” the insider said. “It’s killing him that Kate is having all of this success.”
Kate’s show, “Twist of Kate,” debuts on the network this summer.

I’m wondering how Jon keeps finding rich clueless victims. He seems to be scouting for women through the entire country so there have to be some wealthy needy fools left who don’t set foot in enough grocery stores to be sufficiently forewarned.
We’re focusing on Kate’s equally annoying do-nothing husband since he’s getting less coverage lately, but there’s plenty of news about her as usual. According to Life & Style, Kate hasn’t had sex since she was last with Jon in January, 2009. He was catting around at that time and rumors surfaced in May of a three month affair he’d had with a school teacher.
Kate has plans to fix her self-imposed celibacy, though. According to Popeater she hopes to hook up with a celebrity like Jeff Goldblum or David Hasselhoff. She might not be aiming as high as we think. Goldblum allegedly had a fling with John Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter and Hasselhoff might be game after a lot of vodka. She also should consider taking Taylor Hicks up on his offer.
