Alright, so a post I once wrote about how much Kate Gosselin of the disastrous Jon & Kate Plus 8 makes me wanna puke has gotten quite a few hits, with most people agreeing that this castrating nightmare deserves everything she gets, including the recent split of her marriage. (Of course, there are some sympathizers out there. Then again, there were Nazi sympathizers once, too.)
ANYway, this post is not so much about Kate (who, according to a new TLC sneak peek, is soldiering on, insisting that she will do all she can for the money ... I mean, her kids). No, the focus of this post is on the women who for some reason are attracted to Kate's ex, the tubby, remarkably bland Jon Gosselin, who is partying like it's 1999. (Seriously, he's 32, and lately he's been acting like he's 22.)
First, there was the 23-year-old school teacher, Deanna Hummel, whose loving brother charmingly tattled on his sis to the tabs. Apparently she was too boring for the even more boring Jon, because she was soon dumped for Hailey Glassman, a hard-partying chica who vacationed with Mr. Yawn in Saint-Tropez and who apparently likes to have her picture taken while druuuuuuunk. But Jon Gosselin hasn't stopped there. His latest flame is reported to be a woman named Kate Major, a Star reporter who has left her job over the tryst. She's the oldest of the fame whore triad at 26, so at least that's ... good? (Not sure on that.)
Now if this regular category were entitled Men Who Make Us Ask WTF?, trust me, Jon Gosselin would be its weekly topic. But it's not. It's about women, and it seriously strikes me as odd that any woman would want to attach herself to such a lump of slack. What is his appeal? His unemployed, reality star status or his eight children and nightmare ex-wife? Or could it possibly be ... the hair plugs?
