The story behind the fall of Jon Gosselin from fame and wealth followed by crash into poverty helps convey the other side of a USA which many people mistakenly insist is made up of gold lined streets of unlimited opportunity and generosity. Radar Online reported on Sept. 12, 2013, "Jon Gosselin Hits Rock Bottom: He’s Now Waiting Tables At Pennsylvania Pub."
Gosselin, the former TLC reality show star of “Jon and Kate Plus 8,″ who is a father of eight kids, has taken a job waiting on tables at Emily’s pub in Beckersville, Pennsylvania. One source has said, “Jon has really hit rock bottom." The former reality star was spending time relaxing in St. Tropez with champagne and yachts as part of his lifestyle not too long ago. Now he's working a weekend shift at a pub which probably pays him no more than $40 or $50.
Hollywood News Daily has reported, "Jon Gosselin: Former ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8′ star working as a waiter." Gosselin has now been forced to take a job as a waiter and bus boy in order to help himself survive. Gosselin lives in a cabin in the woods where the rent is cheap. He was divorced from Kate Gosselin in 2009. There's an old saying that you never know who your friends are until the chips are down, and so if Gosselin has any real friends now, he would probably appreciate their help.
