After a very rough year, it looks as though Jon Gosselin of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8 is getting his life together. He’s got a new girlfriend, a new job, and a new outlook on life, and according to a source, he’s also got a Real Housewife for a friend, who advised him to stay away from the cameras. Which Housewife is it?
“Jon is very close with Jill Zarin from ‘Real Housewives of New York,’” a source close to the former reality TV star told Popeater.com’s Rob Shuter. “It was Jill who told Jon to stay out of the spotlight and get himself a real job. Fame is fun but doesn’t pay the bills.”
No word has yet been released about how Jon and Jill met each other, or how long they’ve been friends.
Another thing that’s not clear is what Jon Gosselin is actually doing these days. Many sources have confirmed that he has a “real job,” but while one says that he’s working with an Information Technology company, another says that he’s working with a real estate developer.
Whatever he’s doing, everyone seems to agree that things are going much better for Jon Gosselin since his very public divorce.
“Jon is in a great place,” said a friend of the Gosselin. “He is happy and knows what a fool he made of himself after his split from Kate. He has been getting a lot of TV offers, including interest from ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and has turned them all down. If he never sees a TV camera again in his life it will be too soon.”
