Jon and Kate Gosselin’s breakup has been chronicled through every sort of media. As their divorce nears, Jon is hoping the couple can soon start “working towards communicating better and being amicable” a friend tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Though Jon had some pretty strong words for his estranged wife during a recent TV interview (even saying he despises her), a friend explains that the father of eight didn’t necessarily mean what he said and wants to move on. “He was emotional, it doesn’t mean that was reality. Its been a tough situation. They’ve both said regrettable things and now he wants them to try and work together since that is what is best for their kids.”
Regardless of what happens in the future, Jon will “always respect Kate” says the friend. “She will always be the mother of his children.”
