Jon Gosselin Waiting Tables

At least he’s got a job. The former patriarch of TLC’s reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 has a new job waiting tables at a Pennsylvania restaurant called Black Dog. The bad press from his stint on the show and high-profile divorce from Kate, he said, made it “impossible” to get a job. “Well, it's fun and I get to talk to people,” he said. “And they technically already know me … they're like, 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'" Gosselin has also relocated to a cabin in the woods, a far cry from the million-dollar mansion he once shared with Kate and the family. Bonus? The cabin has no Internet access so he can’t read negative stories on gossip sites.
