Passive-Aggressive Jon Is Now Playing Nice

Jon Gosselin has ingested a large slice of humble pie, and is not only admitting his wrongdoings, but apologizing to "great mom" Kate! The father of eight had that and more to say about his ex-wife.

Jon GosselinJon Gosselin is one sorry sack of man. The father of eight, once embroiled in a bitter divorce from Kate Gosselin has turned over a new leaf, apologized for his bad behavior and even gone so far as to compliment his former enemy!

On Wednesday, Jon Gosselin told People magazine he was "sorry" for being passive-aggressive with Kate, causing fans of the now defunct Jon and Kate Plus 8 to die of shock, prompting pigs to fly and hell to freeze over once and for all.

"I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn't want done to me," the 35-year-old divorcee said, referring to the not small number of women he dated after their split.

"I was passive-aggressive," Jon Gosselin went on to say of his past behavior. "Then I'd get mad, but I was the one who wasn't communicating."

Amazingly, attitudes and pleasantries between Jon and Kate Gosselin are now quickly on the mend. "I'll call [Kate] up and say, 'Mady's sick. What do I do?' And she'll tell me," he explained as an example of their current interactions. "She's a great mom. We just have different parenting styles."

What's brought Jon Gosselin to have such an epiphany about treating one another with kindness? Time, distance from the spotlight he's openly detested and guidance.

"I used to talk to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (Michael Jackson's rabbi) a lot when I lived in New York," Jon Gosselin shared. "He said, 'There are two things you can do with your fame -- sell out or take it and use it for good.' I didn't grasp that at the time."

"I've been offered a lot of stuff," Gosselin added when questioned about a return to the entertainment world. "Crazy stuff. It wasn't the right fit, then or now. I don't want [my kids] thinking I take every show just to make a buck."

Kate Gosselin has yet to share any reaction to Jon's latest interview.

I find this woman intolerable. If no one wtcehas her, she won't be on television; it's that simple. It was cute when they did a special once a year on them, but once it became a regular show, it got out of control quickly. All the celebrity had clearly affected Kate; I recall very early on an episode when Jon had to take Kate shopping because she didn't put much effort into her appearance. Many years later, I saw in a commercial where they were traveling up North to Alaska I believe (or maybe Canada? Somewhere cold), and Kate made a comment to the effect of not being comfortable being casual in boots because of always wearing heels . Um, really? What happened to that woman whose husband had to force her to buy clothing and look a little nicer? This woman could use a healthy dose of self-reflection and introspection.

I think Jon is a whimp and always was a whimp. Stop blaming Kate for the end of the marriage. It takes two to succeed and two to fail. If Jon just spoke up then things could have ended differently. When those kids were with Jon they never seemed happy. With Kate they were most of the time. Hope these kids are doing well now.

This family is a joke and we shouldn't be paying them any more attention! I agree, it is all just a ploy to get back into the limelight! They have done nothing to deserve it and just continue to use their kids as pawns and it is sick.

I can't believe these guys are still relevant. Parading your young children around on national TV for how long? A couple years? That wasn't enough? Now that the spotlight has moved on, you've got to pipe back up and make some statements, apologize, blah blah blah. It's all just a ploy to be back in the limelight.

Kate has been getting desperate to get the kids back on tv, so Jon, in typical Gosselin dysfunction, completely changes his story and beliefs, again, completely opposite from statements made earlier that having the kids on tv was bad for them. Which is it you dumb fool? Jon is just like Kate, both lying and emotionally exploitative parents that have ZERO CREDIBILITY OR ENTERTAINMENT TALENTS OTHER THAN CHILD EXPLOITATION!
