Jon Gosselin: Unlikely voice of reason?

It’s hard to believe the idea that Gosselin, the former reality-star-in-the-throes-of-a-midlife crisis and unofficial Ed Hardy spokesman, could be someone we’d actually have to listen to again, let alone agree with, but here we are, PopWatchers. Gosselin recently sat down (in what appears to be the waiting room of a dentist or dermatology office) with to share his thoughts on his ex-wife’s determination to keep herself — and their kids — in the spotlight for financial reasons, as their recently-canceled show Kate Plus 8 draws to an end.

Now, brace yourselves, it all sounds entirely logical and seems kind of sincere. Michael Lohan, your former douchey protege hath betrayed you! Seriously this guy just said these things:

“Things will work out the way they should work out. Obviously there are families out there that have several kids. People work normal jobs. And things work out.”

“To rely on reality television… that’s a misnomer. Reality television is not a career. Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family.”

“I have my kids, I have my custody, I pay child support … I don’t have a farm on 24 acres… and the kids seem to have a good time at my house.” (Maybe he let them eat their pizza without guilt and berating? So there, Steve the Security Guard!)

Of course, there’s a bit of irony here considering Gosselin is using an entertainment outlet to speak out against using fame as a tool for something. But, hey, if it works and we never have to endure anything like this again, we’ll willing to let that detail slide.

Are you as surprised as we are by Jon Gosselin, PopWatchers? Do you believe a pod person took over this body and made him into a reasonable human, or did you get the impression that maybe he’s missing the spotlight a little bit?
