Jon Gosselin wishes for normalcy

Despite his trips to Europe and dates with random women, Jon Gosselin wishes he had never become famous. The father of 8 stated in an interview (with an unknown source) that, "I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I'm living. ...I don't even want to do taping for the show anymore."**

Whether this truth or rumor is only known to Jon, but the newly single father is making promotional appearances, at various venues, to support his two homes and 8 children.

In summary, I believe the Gosselin family experienced fame too fast. They became a national frenzy overnight and were not aware of the stings that come with celebrity. Although both Kate and Jon can now provide for their children separately, their 10-year marriage has ended---an idea that their children have yet to comprehend.

All in all, I applaud Jon for moving on and Kate for protecting her children. A wise woman once told me a phrase that relates to life and stability: "Excessive fame should be lived by those that have nothing to lose." If the Gosselins had knew this, the only nightmare they would experience is cleaning the house after dinner.
