Considering he was once yachting in the south of France and starring on his own TV show, Jon Gosselin has resorted to a rather humble way to make some cash. The former Jon and KatePlus 8 star’s new full-time job is now waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.
Jon and Kate Gosselin were once a (sort of) happy couple with a top-rated TLC show, but things all went downhill after the pair’s divorce in 2009. While Kate lives with the eight kids in the couple’s $1.3 million home, Jon left the lap of luxury for a cabin in the woods with no internet or TV.
And while Jon admitted to Entertainment Tonight that it’s been “next to impossible to find work,” the former reality star might also be struggling to come up with some money after getting sued by his ex-wife. According to Kate, Jon illegally obtained her phone records and computer files to write a juicy tell-all book titled Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World. The reality dad is now facing charges for invasion of privacy, wiretapping and identity theft.
Nevertheless, Jon still manages to keep a good attitude about his current occupation.
“At first I was nervous because I was like, ‘How are people going to react?’ Jon told the show. “But I’m thinking, ‘Well, it’s fun and I get to talk to people.’ And they technically already know me… they’re like, ‘Are you the guy?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m the guy.’”
