Jon Gosselin, famous for being the husband of verbally acerbic wife Kate, is now waiting tables in a small Pennsylvania town. Jon, who was the ratings-drawing subject of his wife's tongue lashings on a hugely popular TLC reality TV series, now lives simply in a cabin in the woods, according to the Daily News on Sept. 19.
Typically, the game plan is to wait tables before becoming a famous television star. But that's been reversed for Jon, as he now finds himself working as a waiter at a Beckersville, Pa., restaurant named the "Black Dog".
Four years after TLC cancelled their hugely popular "Jon & Kate Plus 8" show, Jon admits it's tough to wait on tables and have people recognize him, according to ET.
One can only imagine though, that after a Letterman-type "brush with greatness", that he gets a hefty tip.
Gosselin said his notoriety from the high-profile reality show has made made it nearly impossible to land a new job. Kate and Jon's bitter 2009 divorce brought an abrupt end to their TLC series, which followed them as they struggled to bring up their sextuplets and twins.
Jon says that he no longer has any physical contact with his ex Kate. Texts and email are their only means of communication. He also fessed up that he does not pay any type of child support.
Apparently the two pay for whatever the kids need when they're in each others custody. The couple once shared a $1.3 million mansion during the height of the television show's popularity.
Currently, Jon doesn't even have Internet access to read the occasional gossip bits that pops up about him. Gosselin said he doesn't regret anything, saying, "You learn from your mistakes".
"I’ve hit rock bottom like 20 times, and then I bounce back again", he said.
