Jon Gosselin ‘Sorry’ for What He Did to Kate

Bobby Bank/WireImage/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jon Gosselin says he’s partly to blame for the way his marriage to Kate Gosselin ended.

The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 couple went through a bitter divorce that was finalized in 2009. Reflecting on that experience in an interview with People magazine, Gosselin said he was “passive-aggressive,” adding, “Then I’d get mad, but I was the one who wasn’t communicating.”

Gosselin said the lines of communication between he and his ex-wife are open again. He called her a “great mom” who simply has a different parenting style than he does.

The 35-year-old dad also regrets that the mother of his kids had to watch him date several women after their divorce. He said, “I am sorry, because I did stuff I wouldn’t want done to me.” He’s now dating a 27-year-old single mom.

Will we ever see Gosselin on TV again? Probably not in the near future. He said, “I’ve been offered a lot of stuff. Crazy stuff. It wasn’t the right fit, then or now. I don’t want [my kids] thinking I take every show just to make a buck.”

Kate Gosselin's Slammed After Son Crawls Under Van

John M. Heller/Getty Images(READING, Pa.) -- A child- and auto-safety group criticized Kate Gosselin after one of her eight children crawled under the family van Thursday while she sat behind the wheel.

“A minivan is a 3,000-pound, lethal weapon and having children crawling around it is not prudent,” president and founder Janette Fennell told

The little boy was photographed crawling beneath the van to retrieve a paper after getting off the school bus in Reading, Pa.

Gosselin’s rep did not respond immediately to ABC News’ request for comment.

The mother of eight had been waiting at the bus stop to pick up her children. Radar reported that she stayed in the driver’s seat oblivious to what was happening underneath the van, as the other children piled in. The little boy, one of the sextuplets, got into the car safely before Gosselin drove away.

The criticism is another blow to the former darling of reality television. Her show, Kate Plus 8, was canceled in August after seven seasons and 150 episodes, and she's been weathering criticism for her attempts to keep her kids in the spotlight ever since.
