Beware, TV land, because tabloid favorite Jon Gosselin says he’s looking to land a job as a television host — just one of the latest moves the ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8‘ star has taken towards getting back on his feet after his split from wife Kate.
“I just can’t afford the $22,000 a month right now. That is why I’m trying to find a job,” Gosselin told TMZ while discussing the court order forcing him to pay Kate monthly child support.
Money appears to be so tight for Gosselin that he has sued Kate in hopes of stopping the child support payments, reports the Huffington Post.
Until Gosselin lands a gig hosting the next hit reality show, he is opting to sell off his recently purchased BMW and has allegedly taken on a wealthy love interest. “She’s rich — and he’s hoping to have her back one of his projects,” a source told Us Weekly.
One of those “projects” is aiming for TLC, the network that gave Gosselin his claim to fame. A source told Us that Kate’s success has been getting to Gosselin, leading him to lobby TLC for his own show.
