Jon Gosselin’s girlfriend has an advice website

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.

jongosselin_ellenrossReality 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, 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.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, November 22, 2010]

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.

    With parents like Jon and Kate is it any wonder that two of their children were expelled from school and the rest are having behavioural issues?

  2. Po says:

    The title of the post made me laugh out loud. I’m going to take advice from the women who is dating Jon Gosselin?!

  3. teehee says:

    Thats a rough looking 24 year old… and Im just surprised at the ease with which he floats through girlfriends like someone thumbing thru a magazine.

  4. Scarlet Vixen says:

    Huh, this gf actually looks normal! Maybe his “I got married too young to a crazy controlling b*tch and need to rebel” phase is winding down…

  5. ziggy says:

    if he weren’t famous he wouldn’t be getting any girlfriends. fame-hos everyone, thinking by latching onto this loser they can get their 15 minutes. it seems to be working….

  6. waldemar says:

    Well, if anyone needs a life strategie it his him.

    He is a project for her, I guess.

  7. Stronzilla says:

    He’s jobless, divorced with 8 kids to support, living in her apartment with three Chihuahuas, a rat and a fish? And she buys into his plan to provide for everyone by writing his ‘tell-all’ memoirs?

    Oh honey, we gotta talk.

  8. Praise St. Angie! says:

    ugh. he makes my skin crawl.

    to teehee…I think the reason he goes through them so quickly is because they eventually realize (fairly quickly) that he’s a lazy SOB who has no intention of getting a real job, and he just plans to live off of whatever girl he’s banging at the moment. recall that he moved in with (the parents of) that REALLY young socialite he was dating.

    and that “more in love with INSERT CURRENT WOMAN’S NAME HERE than I ever was with Kate” has become a recurring theme. I think he leaks quotes like that to try to get back at his ex.

    Speechless. (cause I’m laughing too hard)

  10. Feebee says:

    Maybe he’s a work project for her?

  11. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Maybe the girlfriend should raise the kids. Sounds like she’s got all the answers.

  12. texasmom says:

    God, I feel so witless for admitting this. . . but I think she seems really nice and normal and a good influence on the poor shlub.

    I always thought Jon Gosselin was a nice guy who needs a lot of direction, unfortunately he fell in with the harridan, Kate. So this chick seems like a great step forward for him, and I believe they are getting married.

    Having said that, what’s in it for HER?????

  13. Ginny says:

    From all I’ve seen on other blogs, Ellen is very nice and mature and works hard to be kind and supportive to Jon’s kids, including chasing off paps and hiding them behind beach towels when they’re out with their dad.

    She also doesn’t seem to be being much of a famewhore. The Gosselin-specific blogs (Like Werny Girl’s) all think pretty highly of her.

    dear ellen,
    my boyfriend won’t get a job…what should i do? just call me –

    dear confused,
    sometimes men just need a little encouragement. take my boyfriend, jon, or as i like to call him, “drunken, bloated pufferfish” – he is unemployed, has 8 kids, a crazy beeyotch ex-wife and an animal menagerie in his teeny apartment. he has no plans or goals for his future, but i don’t let it get me down. he has many great qualities. like….erm, well…um…
    i need to rethink this.

  15. Kelley says:

    Ugh, he really goes for the homely ones, doesn’t he ? >:(

  16. Iggles says:

    That chick looks OLD!!!!

    She looks like she’s in her mid thirties!! She got wrinkles. WTH?

  17. elvisgrace says:

    If I had an advice website, the first piece of advice would be, “Don’t date Jon Gosselin”, followed by “Don’t take advice from someone who willingly, and w/o any compensation(including vicarious famewhoring) dates Jon Gosselin”

  18. Madisyn says:

    CB, you made a typo with her age: 24.

    Did you mean a hard 34 or a soft 44?

  19. melinda says:

    No way she is 24, possibly 42?

  20. DrM says:

    Her advice blog should be titled: “How To Hook Up With a Douche”

  21. Glo says:

    Investigating her blog, she sounds like a pleasant and friendly person with positive, creative interests. Not letting history color your thoughts, they look genuinely happy together and devoted to each other.

  22. Emily says:

    I’m 22, and there is no frickin’ way this chick is only two years older than me! She looks about 20 years older.

  23. Jazz says:

    Anything’s better than Kate.
