A photo of Jon Gosselin, father to oh-so-many squeaky little ones on TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8, was recently photographed with both an unfortunate puff-face and a couple of grim college chicks:
…igniting a firestorm of rumors claiming that the micromanaged husband and dad had snuck away to a bar and cheated on his intense, neurotic wife with a couple of co-eds.
When the photo surfaced, I myself was unconvinced of any wrongdoing as per the documentation, which looked about as tawdry as my photo with Bill O’Reailly (To clarify: not very). Some people, however, were convinced, angry at him for even leaving the house to throw down a few live ones. Such sentiments have been illustrated by web comments like, “Pfft, I’d leave her if I was him” and “He is married if he wants to leave his responsibilities (his children) to go party…… then he should get a divorse [sic].”
This is where I have to draw the line. There is nothing necessarily wrong with the fella hitting a local watering hole sans babies and mama. As Gosselin told People, Jon had gone to stay with his mother (the lovely lady responsible for his Asian side) and nurse her to health from a broken foot, taking a break to have some drinks and “blow off steam.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I was once holed up alone with my Hardass Asian Mom when she was sick, and that shit wasn’t pretty. I needed a break–a long, alcohol-filled one. And in such situasians, one drink sometimes isn’t enough. Heck, sometimes fourteen drinks aren’t enough.
Let’s try and throw this guy a bone, eh?
