Rumors of an impending dating show with Octomom Nadya Suleman have sent Jon Gosselin into his nuttiest shame spiral yet. “I am troubled to learn that the media has accepted as true the scurrilous rumor that I would appear in a reality television program with Nadya Suleman,” he told Us. “This is utterly false. I do, however, accept that some of my previous actions have in some way lent credence to such outrageous stories.” That’s true, JoGo—dating Octomom ain’t much worse than rolling with Michael Lohan. So how are you going to profit—sorry, so what are you going to do about it?
“It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect.” Uh oh… “I have always endeavored to be a loving father and a devoted parent who serves as a moral exemplar to his eight children…I have therefore agreed to a forum at New York’s West Side Synagogue this Sunday where I intend to publicly apologize in a sacred space to those whom I have hurt.” Wow. Even when JoGo’s sorry he’s selling tickets. Here’s a sneak preview of Sunday’s speech.
Despite his denials, the Octomom rumor mill rages on. “Jon’s camp got scared because they didn’t expect the story to come out so quickly,” some nutbar told the Daily News. “They figured they would issue a denial now while they still work out negotiations for the show…Jon definitely wants to do the show.” We can’t tell if JoGo is weaving the web, trapped in it, or both.
