You’ll see a different side of Jon Gosselin on Monday night’s episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, and it’s not going to get him nominated for Father of the Year.
In this preview clip Jon is shown ignoring his kids, while texting, talking on the phone and doing what has come to be known as “working the fence.”
Monday night’s show definitely puts the reality in reality TV as Kate comments on Jon’s lack of interaction with the kids, and makes it clear it’s not a one-time thing.
Watch the video above.
After one clip of Jon blatantly ignoring one of his daughters, Kate says about her soon-to-be-ex: “He is on the phone a lot. I will come home and I’ll say, ‘Did daddy play with you?”
The kids answer her, “no.’ and when she asks them what was Jon doing they respond: “He was on the phone.”
Kate explains that she strongly believes Jon’s calls are personal and she limits her calls around the kids to work only.
Jon is also show “working the fence” which is when he goes over to talk to photographers and visitors at the fence on his property, often conducting impromptu sessions with the media.
Monday night’s show is the next to last of Jon & Kate Plus 8, but still breaks new ground in its depiction of Jon.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs Monday night at 9/8c on TLC.
