Kate Gosselin may go back to being a nurse, but her estranged husband's next career move is reportedly to date Octomom Nadya Suleman on television.
In Touch Weekly released the following statement:
According to former Cheaters producer Bobby Goldstein, Jon has agreed to star in a cheesy new reality show in which he'll date Octomom Nadya Suleman, who called Jon "hot" recently. "I heard that Nadya has an insatiable desire to spend time with Jon and to put their families together," Goldstein tells In Touch. "And I had the idea that this could be a very entertaining fiasco." The pilot, to be called Jon - Kate = Jon + Octomom and produced by Goldstein and a former producer of The Jerry Springer Show, will follow Jon "as he contemplates what hooking up with Octomom could really be like," a press release obtained by In Touch states. "He's totally creeped out by the idea that if they got married, they'd have 22 kids." Also creepy is the plotline for Nadya, 33. She will have such an obsession with Jon, 32, that "she's already talking openly about the two of them getting married," the press release explains. "It's so bad that when they finally meet, Octomom's brood may start calling Jon 'Daddy.' If this doesn't make Jon lose it, then Octomom modeling her bikini body for him will."
With Jon's life in a downward spiral, it's shocking that he would sign on for such a sensational project -- especially when he's locked in a nasty divorce with estranged wife Kate, 34, plus involved in a relationship with Hailey Glassman, 23. But Goldstein believes that Jon's quest for fame trumps all. "I think that he wants to remain in the limelight," he tells In Touch. "Notoriety is a component that some humans place a lot of value on." But reps for both Jon and Nadya deny that any show is in the works. Jon may also need money. A divorce court judge ordered him to return $155,000 he drained from a joint bank account he shares with Kate on October 14. With less cash in his pocket, and his bread and butter, Jon & Kate Plus 8, over, Jon is looking desperate and is willing to stoop to just about anything to feed his family. Even Goldstein knows the show is ridiculous -- but hopes it'll get great ratings. "It will be like watching a train wreck," Goldstein adds. "You know you shouldn't look, but you can't turn your head away."
