Jon Gosselin recently exploded on an episode of the VH1 reality TV show Couples Therapy following a conversation with ex-wife Kate. However, a source close to Kate, the mother of Gosselin’s eight children, reports that the entire phone call was a set-up to stir drama on the show.
According to the insider, Kate, 38, purposely avoided any conversations with Jon, 36, while he appeared on Couples Therapy. The source reveals that, “Kate never talked to Jon on the phone during his Couples Therapy tryst. In fact, Jon and Kate haven’t actually spoken on the phone in years; they just text. But either way, the entire scene with Jon exploding and going off on Kate was just something he orchestrated to make himself relevant on the show and make sure he got screen time.”
As previously reported, Jon engaged in an expletive-filled rant, bashing Kate and her recent lawsuit against him. “It’s narcissistic, bullsh--t behavior. And she can go out and talk about the kids anytime she wants! She can tweet and have a f--kin’ website dedicated to them, every f--kin’ book she’s ever put out because she wants to keep being on television which is never gonna f--kin’ happen, so she can f--kin’ die,” he ranted.
“There’s your honest depiction of Kate Gosselin. Piece of f--king sh-t. What a sh--ty human being.”
And although it’s no secret that the pair had an epic breakup, they continue to publicly argue over their finances and children.
According to the source, “The whole point of Jon being on the show is to work on his relationship with Liz Jannetta. But instead, he’s using it as a platform to trash Kate, which you almost can’t fault him since that’s basically what reality TV is these days.”
