"It is hard for me to ask to be forgiven from someone who might never forgive me. I am saying this now to Kate, 'I am sorry for doing the things that I did'," Jon said.

Gosselin spoke to only about 50 paying customers and another 75 media at an event sponsored by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's organization, This World.

Held at the West Side Jewish Center in Manhattan, Jon's confessional began 30 minutes late but he and the Rabbi then spoke for almost two hours.

Fame, Jon said, had been his downfall. ""I didn't grow up this way. It is hard for me," he said. "But I have to keep on going, keep on working and providing."

Knowing that his children could one day Google him and read about his recent behavior is an embarrassing thought, he added. "I know I'll have to explain my actions."
