Fifteen minutes of fame wasn’t quite enough for Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, Jon Gosselin who is actively seeking another job in television. The father of eight tells TMZ that he would like to find a job in TV, preferably hosting, in order to help him pay his monthly child support fees of $22,000. Keep reading for more details on Jon’s job hunt and his change of heart about custody of his kids…

Jon Gosselin is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his ex-wife (and former Jon & Kate Plus 8 co-star), Kate Gosselin, to find more work in television. Since the couple’s divorce ended their long-running TLC reality show, Kate has gone on to land gigs starring in her own TLC show, Kate plus 8, as well as ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars and a new upcoming reality show (also with TLC), Twist of Kate. Her ex-husband on the other hand has not received any offers, but he’s hoping to change that.

“I would like a job in some aspect of TV, probably as a host,” Jon told TMZ. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star says his desire to find a new job has to do with his costly required child support payments. “I just can’t afford the $22,000 a month right now. That is why I’m trying to find a job.”

Jon’s former lawyer, Anthony List recently spoke to TMZ about Kate Gosselin’s self-promotion saying she is “always promoting something…and most of the time it’s herself. Dancing With the Stars is just the tip of the iceberg for Kate, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place soon.” His statement enraged Jon who took to Twitter to respond, saying, “He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf. Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.”

Jon also insists that it was List who pressured him to file for primary custody of his eight children in the first place. “I never wanted primary custody, he [List] filed for that.  I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids,” Jon says.

    Jon must find a job similar to the kind he had before. If he cannot find one,probbably best for him to try find one in Hawaii nearer to his clans who can help him look after the children, Since he is part Asian and Asian are well known for large and close knitted family ties, i am sure they have no problem helping him.

    If Jon is smart enough he need to stay away from the media spotlight.

    If people from poor background can earn a living,support his latge family on a meagre income.able to put food on the table and raise successful children..why can’t Jon??.

    The on;y grounded and sane member of this family are the children.The parents need to go for check up.

    Since he is part Asian and Asian are well known for large and close knitted family ties, i am sure they have no problem helping him. Since Kate is more dominant and crazy to work, probably best to let her work full time. The kids go live with Jon in Hawaii.

    If Jon is smart enough he must to stay away from the media spotlight.

    If people from poor background can earn a living,support his large family on a meager income,able to put food on the table and raise successful children..why can’t Jon??.

    The only grounded and sane member of this family are the children.

    The parents need to go for check up before what horrible gift next they give their children… besides that gift of broken home.
