Learn From Jon

Posted by Kero at Tuesday, August 04, 2009
Jon and Kate are the celebrities I am least interested. I think i will never forgive them for putting their kids through such trash publicity and for raking millions out of the 8 darlings. The sight of Jon's crinkled face and Kate's peroxide blonde strand on Socialite Life (my guilty pleasure.....oopps, there i said it) makes me turn to Gulf News online opinion.

But today, an interesting article was shared by AskMen.com and I am sharing it here because maybe we all have that male friend who can learn from these. Read on and feel free to share.

What Men Can Learn From Jon Gosselin
by Ryan McKee

1. Don't Wear Ed Hardy

Here's the thing that intelligent people have known for a while: Ed Hardy is a clothing brand that is shallow, dumb, and sported by d-bags. Just because their T-shirts are $75 does not mean they're cool. Stop trying to look like you're popular and go back to shopping at Hot Topic or the Gap. In fact, Ed Hardy has become so synonymous with d-bags, we can officially retire it and just call people "Ed Hardies." They don't even have to be wearing the clothes, they just fit the profile. Thank you, Jon, for being such an "Ed Hardy" while wearing Ed Hardy so people will finally get it.

2. Stand Up For Yourself

After getting bullied around by his wife on the show, this ramshackle playboy act is how Gosselin is trying to prove to everyone that he's a man. We're not buying it. Maybe if he wrestled a timber wolf while punching Bear Grylls. If he would have just been a man and stood up for himself in the first place, he wouldn't feel this need to overcompensate.

3. Don't Publicize Your Crises

On top of his premature midlife crisis, Gosselin played out a bad rebound choice -- a 22-year-old party girl -- and a second bad rebound choice -- a gossip writer -- in the public eye. If you're dealing with some issues, the best thing is not to make a highly publicized move to New York. We understand the need to nail anything that moves after a marriage to dictator octo-mom, but do that under the radar. Vacation in Austin or Portland or, better yet, Paris. Their paparazzi don't care about our deadbeat reality stars. While the majority of us don't need to worry about the press, don't publicize your breakdowns on Facebook or in your blog.

4. Keep Your Story Straight

Gosselin has been jumping back and forth between 22-year-old Hailey Glassman and former Star magazine reporter Kate Major. Playing the field is one thing, but you need to be honest about it. Gosselin told Usmagazine.com, "My heart is always with Hailey." Then less than a week later, he said, "I care about Kate Major, she resigned from her job for me." He needs to work on a lower profile.

5. Don't Hang Out With Other "Ed Hardies"

Like it or not, we're judged by the company we keep. Not only that, but if you hang out with idiots, eventually they'll find a way to screw your life up -- even if it's not intentional. Gosselin decided to take Kate Major up to Michael Lohan's place in Southampton. The estranged father of Lindsay (she's proof of what happens when you're a deadbeat dad), Lohan spent two years in prison on drunk-driving and other charges. Recently, his fiancee claimed he threatened to kill her and himself if she left him. Mr. Smooth. He is not the guy you want to buddy up with. Plus, after the weekend, Lohan freely spoke to the press. Even though Gosselin just hired top-notch public relations firm Rubenstein Communications, Lindsay's dad said Jon isn't with either Kate or Hailey. What happened to bros before press?

6. Don't Forget That You Have Children

You have children and you're no longer with the mother. Don't punish the kids by avoiding the situation. Jon says the divorce is because he just wants to focus on the kids, but he's busy gallivanting around to the French Riviera and Southampton while Kate is taking their kids to the doctor. He doesn't even have a job or a place where all eight kids can sleep comfortably. He opted for an apartment in New York rather than a ranch house to keep his kid farm. He has forgotten that he has responsibilities to them in the present, and that his current choices will be an embarrassment to them in the future. One of his daughters will definitely be a stripper now. Good ol' daddy issues.
