Jon Gosselin has been under the radar ever since Jon & Kate Plus 8 went off the air, and Page Six dropped a surprising piece of news on Wednesday about where he’s ended up. He’s far from the spotlight — like, into the kitchen, far. According to the site, Gosselin is working as a chef and occasional DJ at the T.G.I. Friday’s in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
They chatted with the restaurant’s General Manager, Scott Trompeter, who I can only hope cleared this interview with Gosselin. “He works here because he likes to cook,” said Trompeter. “He cooks during the day for me and sometimes here and there. He’s done a great job the last couple of months. He’s part of my Friday’s family.” It seems like Gosselin is working full time at Friday’s which when you think about it, is pretty much equivalent to having a show on reality TV.
Trompeter maintained that Gosselin “donate[s] his check every week,” but couldn’t name any of the charitable organizations on the receiving end of this supposed generosity. He also said that Gosselin also plays the occasional DJ set at Friday’s.
I can’t even fathom having to support two cats, let alone eight children. Kudos to Gosselin for getting a job that allows him to provide for his family, play his music and eat mac and cheese bites.
