Jon Gosselin is continuing to put himself in the hot seat, making the rounds in the media. Jon went on Larry King Live Thursday night to respond to the claims he made against TLC and the new Kate Plus 8 show. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight airing Friday, Jon reportedly apologizes to Kate Gosselin (or the camera).
Jon plans to tell Kate “sorry” in person, but for now he thinks the best way to handle things is by taking it to the media.
Jon tells ET‘s Mary Hart that he would like to say to Kate, “Kate, I just want to apologize, you know for my actions. You know, I’m sorry, you know, that I was an avoider and I didn’t communicate properly. And now I have to take initiative, let’s both go together, let’s both mediate this thing out.”
Jon also says that he has apologized to his kids and will continue to do so, adding, “I mean they’re [aged] 5 and 8, but they understand tabloids, they understand paparazzi, they understand all that stuff. They know things that are always printed are not truth. … They are media trained themselves, but when the time is right as a father I’ll decide what I’m going to do with my kids, apologizing whys and what’s right to say. I mean, that’s why I am getting counseling and that’s why I have a great team because I don’t really know what to say to them that won’t hurt them or harm them in any way.”
Last time Jon made the media rounds, Kate responded by doing the same thing by talking back to him through the cameras… we’ll see if that happens again!
