Whatever has been Jon Gosselin up to these days, besides DJing at a nightspot bereft of paying customers?
Well, the deadbeat dad just opened up to an OK! magazine scribe about a whole host of exciting things, such as his latest lady friend ("she has a really important job and she is really well established and she is older than me"), his new crib (“In like a duplex. It’s like a house that is split"), and his relationship with batshit-crazy ex Kate ("I think she tends to throw me under the bus a little bit").
But the really big news is that Jon may hang up his turntable and beatbox for a new gig as a public servant.
OK!: What office are you thinking about running for?
Gosselin: “Like political office, so I have a meeting but I’m still hesitant on that because I’m more intimidated, even though politics is kind of like entertainment, it’s just a different kind of world.”
OK!: What position are you looking at doing?
Gosselin: “State representative. But I haven’t made a formal announcement yet, but I have to soon. Actually I have to make an official announcement by January of next year because they are two year terms. There’s a lot of stuff I have to put in place.”
It all makes so much sense, considering that Jon's grasp of public affairs is what sets him apart from all the other has-been celebrities scrounging for crumbs on reality teevee.
Sadly, the OK! reporter did not quiz the solon-in-waiting on the specific components of his platform.
A reform of child-support laws?
Perhaps he can form an alliance with Wally Scott and be our next mayor's go-to man in Harrisburg.
Not sure in what district Jon is laying his pillow these days, but Mark Rozzi, Jim Cox, and Mark Gillen should be afraid, be very afraid.
