Kate Gosselin’s “irate Bath & BodyWorks customer” hair from the Jon & Kate Plus 8 days might be long gone, but the awkward awfulness between her and her ex-husband Jon Gosselin lives on. The latest real-life episode of Jon & Kate Still H8 Each Other happened earlier this week, and of course it’s a mess.
Jon responded to a recent People cover story about Kate and their 8 kids. Deadbeat Daddy Jon has opened his mouth many times in the past about his relationship with the family he barely sees, but he usually goes on about how much he hates his ex-wife. This time around, he’s talking about his 15-year-old twin daughters Cara and Mady.
It all started earlier this month after Jon gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight. Jon claimed he hadn’t seen all 8 of his kids in about 3 years, and that the first to start bailing on Daddy Days with him were the older twins Cara and Mady. They stopped visiting him when they were around 12 or 13. He added that they currently weren’t talking to him. People asked Cara and Mady about whether their father’s claim about them skipping visits is true. Mady has clearly been taking classes at the Jon Gosselin SUCKS Academy that Kate set up in the basement, because she went in hard. She called their relationship with their dad “toxic” and slapped at him for exploiting their problems on television. She also said that nobody was keeping them from seeing their dad and that it’s their choice to not hang out with him.
I guess Jon’s phone wasn’t working, because rather than call up Mady and Cara and talk to them about their busted relationship, he ran back to ET and spilled his feelings to them instead. Michael Lohan just shed a tear and whispered “That’s my boy.”
“I’m very upset. I love my children very much. I’ve always been there for them and I always will be. It’s shocking.”
From the way I see it, it’s not that shocking. Not only was Jon constantly racing against Kate for the World’s Crappiest Parent trophy, he also practically lived in head-to-toe Ed Hardy douchewear. That’s may be what Mady was referring to when she claimed things were “toxic” between the two of them. Breathing in the toxic stench of crystal glue and cheap screen printing ink every time she went in for a hug was too much.
