Jon Gosselin's Kids Won't Be Visiting His New Apartment


The night before he headed for France, Jon Gosselin moved into his new apartment in New York City. You would think that he would find a place which could accommodate his brood of children, but unless he stacks the place with bunk beds, I don't think they will be staying the night anytime soon. According to People, Jon has moved into a 2 bedroom, 1100 square foot apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan which rents for approximately $5,000 a month.

Presumably one of the bedrooms will be for Jon and his girlfriend which would leave the remaining bedroom for his 8 kids and all their toys, plus of course their nanny and Jon's vast Ed Hardy collection.

If he wants to purchase a unit, one could be had for about $1.4M.

Kate better get started on another book, cause it looks like Jon is gonna need the proceeds. I mean, I am sure he is going to need to decorate. Oh, maybe he can do a "top design" stint and get that paid for as well. Does Ed Hardy do duvet covers????

Quintessential Southerner said...

^^^heehee.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Jon is having a mid-life crisis. :)

Syko said...

I thought their plans were to leave the kiddies in their home, and they would move in and out on a regular basis while exercising joint custody?

Still - what possible qualifications does he have that make him able to afford or even need such an expensive place to live? Exactly what WAS he before he sired a litter of kids?

Pookie said...

wow...kate's actually looking less douchey. i can't believe it.

Quintessential Southerner said...

i thought he worked in the IT field?

if men have mid-life crises, what do we call it when women go through similar ordeals?

BigMama said...

the truly fascinating part is that it now is becoming apparent what HIS intrest in continuing the show is....as for going through his mid-life crisis, sheesh, can't he be a bit more original? I, for one, want to hear what his new girlfriends parents have to say about all of this.

Lisa (original) said...

Syko, he was an IT guy who had the rep of being lazy. He got fired from his second job because he spent hours and hours not working, but looking for freebies for his kids online. This despite that they don't actually NEED freebies since they haul in $75,000 per EPISODE! Oh, and Kate gets all her clothes free from Gymboree, Gap and Gap Kids.

BigMama said...

QS, most people call them bitches.

Isabel said...

Six months from now: "Jon Gosselin files for bankruptcy." He is really a stupid, greedy person and I can't wait until karma tears him a new a-hole.

Quintessential Southerner said...

^^^spot on, sister!

Lisa (original) said...

Oh, Enty, don't forget Jon doesn't have room at his new place for the organic chef they have at the 1.3 Million Dollar mansion. So that's another reason the kids and their entourage can't come over.

BigMama said...

I get wanting the best for your children. I do myself. However, at some point a person should recognize that enough truly is enough. Also, I thought they lived in Pennsylvania, what the heck is he doing all they way in New York? They don't have appartement in his home town?

chestnut-red said...

BigMama, I hear ya! He's got eight kids to feed, eventually clothe and send to college...maybe braces and more...and he's living in New York City, one of the highest rent areas in the world? So $60,000/year for rent, and probably that much or more for food and other expenses. Surely he could have found a less-expensive place to live NOT in New York City, nearer to his kids and saved a few bucks for his family's future!

Gayla said...

Don't forget Ent, if the girlfriend is pregnant they're going to have to find room for a crib in that second bedroom along with the 8 kids and the toys.

I'm not even going to talk about how stupid it is to rent an apt. in Manhattan for $5,000 a month when you could easily BUY a house in a more affordable area. But no, go on and move to the most expensive city in the nation to live in, Jon. That will make it all the quicker for you to run out of money before the end of this year.

catdirt said...

amazingly enough it's the ed hardy connection that is hardest for me to swallow... really dude? Ed Hardy? That clothing line is for trash and trash only.

Babs said...

You answered your own question, catdirt. "Trash" certainly seems to fit the bill. (LOVE your name, too!)

lutefisk said...

I am so glad I have never watched the show--I would hate to think that anything I did would have resulted into putting money in his pocket.

AnonMom said...

I guess pimping out your family pays better than I thought.

BigMama said...

yeah, Anonmom. Too bad no one wants to watch me and my brood. My teenage can do surly better than ANY of those kids on the hills

ardleigh said...

What a tool and a stupid one to boot!

Kat said...

I actually, physically hate him and everything he stands for.

I've always been unabashedly Team Kate, even though she used to make me cringe with how she spoke to him, but I always sort of felt like he was the ninth kid.

Frankly, I hope she and the bodyguard ARE getting it on. No more little boys for her. She needs a man to satisfy and put her in her place.

Syko said...

OK, Lisa (original), I get it. Jon Gosselin: Occupation, Slug.

Marisa said...

Shut up! That's a block away from me!

Never seen the show, but I'll, like, yell stuff at him when I see him if you want

BigMama said...

yeah, but it always seemed to me that he didn't do anything and after dealing with 8 kids all day, not getting any real help Would make you crazy

BigMama said...

oh, Marisa, will you???? I will take up a collection for cookies to be sent to you....

Marisa said...

BigMama-

Yeah sure. I accept payment of the cookie or Chipotle burrito variety.

There is a really crazy homeless lady that hands out in front of his building. He better be nice to her.

Marisa said...

*hangs

BigMama said...

What is Kate doing outside his appartment?? LOL

I'll contribute to the cookie fund. Could we add pelting with rotten vegetables? It might actually improve the wardrobe...

M said...

Unfortunately, the Ed Hardy clothing already looks like it was pelted with rotten vegetables.

Marisa said...

Hahaha. Wow.

BigMama said...

yeah, true. Personally, I vote for water balloons. They would be particularly effective in the winter time. :)

Marisa said...

Can you get arrested for water balloons?

BigMama said...

only if you put them in the freezer first. At least that is what the officer told my brother....

Karmen said...

You can get arrested for bottle rockets. Long story.

Marisa, I'm down for the Chiptole Burrito front.

He is despicable. I can't believe he's going to spend that much for a place when he needs to take care of his kids. What a selfish dick.

Karmen said...

Marisa, I'm down for the Chiptole Burrito front.


That sounds weird. I meant, yes, I'd pay you in Chipotle burritos if they could be shipped.

Marisa said...

or we could fill them with red wine. senior prank when i was in high school. it will stain his ed hardy...

jax said...

marissa, you can get charged with assualt for using anything as a weapon.

Marisa said...

jax, you're always the brains of these situations.

forget assault. i guess i'll just report to ent if i see him do anything douchey. still could use some burritos though.

ardleigh said...

Marisa, please tell him to grow up and stop dressing like an asshat.

Lisa (original) said...

Maris, use one of those huge water guns filled with cheapo red wine. I don't see how that can be construed as assault. More of a prank!

Wil said...

Oy Christ .. this guy. can;t he and his slag just go the hell away?? I mean .. am I asking too much??

Here a lot of us are unemployed or afraid of becoming that way, having issues paying our bills and mortgages - heading towards foreclosure in my case - and this dude who has NO identifiable income stream is in our faces daily.

HE NEEDS TO GO AWAY .. uh .. imho! ; )

shakey said...

Oh well - you get what you can afford, eh? LOL!

We all know once the gravy train starts to even slow down (which I think it has), he'll be joining the homeless woman in front of the building.

Tick tock, Jon.

GoddessNow said...

I am beginning to get annoyed at this excuse of a dad. He continues to get a pass (called mid life crisis). Renting a space that doesn't even allow room for your children to visit is a clear statement. Mid life my ass. Call it what it is.

abigail7881 said...

He's 32, isn't he? How can this be a mid life crisis? Average life span in late 70 to early 80s now. He's not due for a true mid life crisis for another 5-10 years!

FYI - The closest I have came to watching this show are the clips that are shown on "The Soup"!

Miss said...

dude I have two kids to feed and one fifth of his rent which I still feel I need to justify..sheesh.. this guy is killing me here.. thank god my city has affordable housing.
