Jon and Kate Gosselin appear ready to declare a truce in their destructive relationship, at least for the holidays, for the sake of the kids, who have had their own emotional problems recently.
The Gosselins went through a bitter divorce last year that played out in public on their reality TV show “Jon & Kate Plus Eight.” But neither seems to have found happiness since.
Jon drew public scorn for hard partying and serial dating, while Kate found it hard to hide her bitterness and has bemoaned being a single mom and her inability to land a new man.
What’s more, her show “Kate Plus Eight” suffered from poor ratings. The show has been on hiatus.
After a controversial stint on “Dancing With The Stars,” which took her away from her kids, Kate has been pretty much out of the spotlight at home in Pennsylvania.
But her mothering skills were called into question recently after two of her children were expelled from their private school for bad behavior and rage issues.
At this point, it would seem like it’s in everyone’s best interest to renew family bonds.
They are no closer, however, to spending quality time together as a family, according to reports.
Kate will get the kids on Thanksgiving day and Jon and girlfriend Ellen Ross will have them the following day, according to gossip site radaronline.
“They have not got to the stage where they could spend the actual day together yet but they are putting their kids first,” a source told the site.
‘Nothing has been settled for Christmas yet but it could be a similar arrangement.”
