Jon Gosselin wanted $12,000 to be on the MJ Morning Show
We know, we keep saying no more Jon Gosselin, but this one has a Tampa angle: Apparently 93.3 WFLZ's MJ Morning Show tried to get the Gozz on the air, but the deadbeat dad balked unless he got $12,000 for an hour of their time. Hey buddy, you need to pay us to listen to that crap.
MJ host Todd Schnitt and TMZ said Wednesday morning that Gosselin was offered two first-class round-trip plane tickets, limo service and decent hotel room, but Jon asked for an "appearance fee ... in the 10-12k range." Gosselin's talent rep, Matt Kirschner, defended the request by saying his "name and appearance on your show will instantly draw press ... and will be a high point for the show." Well, his not appearing has drawn the press, if only to ridicule the reality show staple.
On his show, Schnitt proffered that perhaps Gosselin needed the fee to help pay back the $180,000 he owes Kate. We say it's so he can buy more Ed Hardy t-shirts. Either way, it's certainly not to buy his kids ice cream. Can he even name all of them?
