Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend Liz Janetta will join season 4 of VH1 Couples Therapy. The cast was announced on Monday and Jon and his girlfriend will enter therapy alongside Taylor Armstrong, John Bluher, rapper Ghostface, Killah and Kelsey Nykole, Whitney Mixter and Sada Bettencourt of "The Real L Word," and Farrah Abraham for the next season. Jon and his new girlfriend will be treated by Dr. Jenn Berman on the hit show to work through Jon and his girlfriend's complications.
Jon and his ex Kate Gosselin faced their share of difficulties in their marriage. Jon Gosselin has publicly said he felt 'worthless' around Kate and the Gosselin family broke up due to their 'Jon And Kate Plus 8' TLC reality show, so he could use the couples therapy to make sure his new relationship with girlfriend Liz is successful. Jon has publicly said he wants his privacy, but being on the new show will put him back in the limelight. We are excited to meet his girlfriend Liz and find out more about his turbulent relationship with his ex, Kate Gosselin and how it spills over into his current relationship.
Jon divorced his 'Kate Plus 8' wife, Kate Gosselin, after a very public tumultuous split. Jon Gosselin has found love again with girlfriend Liz who has added an additional 3 children to Jon's 8! The couple have been dating since 2012.
His eight small children plus an ex wife that he barely has contact with makes Jon Gosselin the perfect Couples Therapy cast member. His public statements and arguments with Kate have made these exes enemies and it is positively hurting his new relationship with Liz. Though Jon says 'the relationship has been great' he could use the therapy to make sure his new love, with all of the hardships, lasts.
Jon says even with the additional three kids, the daily grind hasn't changed much, "I got used to cooking for 9 and now I am cooking for 13, it's not bad, I just open one more jar!" Jon says about feeding the crew.
"Most of the time we do things with 11 children, and my kids are older and love her kids. They look so cute together, her three little blondes, with mine who are all dark haired, it's like these are mine and those are yours."
Jon says his new relationship feels right and despite the endless parenting challenges, 'it just works.'
Kate and Jon Gosselin had a popular TLC reality show showcasing their immense family and in hindsight Jon wishes the kids were never in the limelight. Jon Gosselin discussed on Opera Winfrey's OWN show about the downfall of his children starting a war with his ex wife Kate. Jon said:
"I saw my kids not growing up normally, like I grew up, and having community," he said about his eight children with his estranged ex-wife Kate Gosselin, 38. "Yes, they got to travel the world, and yes, they got these fabulous things, and yes, they have trust funds, and they're taken care of educationally. Great. But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what's right and what's wrong. I think more so than someone who grows up off TV."
"We're totally not on the same page at all about anything. ... At this point there is no cooperation, there is nothing. There's two totally different parenting styles -- two totally different everythings, which is a shame, because it affects me, but it really affects my children."
"I really have no relationship with Kate," he said. "I wish her the best in all that she does but [we're] just moving in two totally different directions. ... I really don't know what goes on in Kate's house, and she really doesn't know what goes on in my house."
Kate has publicly fired back in response of Jon Gosselin's unfair words about her kids, "I find it very heartbreaking that my children's father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the 'development' of our children."
"Each and every one of our children has met and continues to exceed all physical, mental and emotional developmental milestones throughout their lives," she wrote. "Their normal development is regularly monitored by myself, their pediatrician and school staff, as is usual within any family.
"It is also very normal in a family, especially a large family, to have a full range of personalities, abilities, talents, hobbies and struggles. Ours is no different. However, anyone who has personally met our children all have the same thing to say: they are the most normal, pleasant, polite, loving and well adjusted children they have ever met. Most even go on to say that they are a 'a delight' to be around."
Since Jon split up with Kate he's been living a secluded life in the outskirts of Pennsylvania, living as a waiter at a restaurant. Jon told "Entertainment Tonight" earlier this year about living the simpler life with his new girlfriend:
"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" Gosselin said. "But then I'm thinking 'Well it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me ... they're like 'Are you the guy?' I'm like 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"
"You learn from your mistakes," he said. "That's what builds you to who you are today."
"I've hit rock bottom about 20 times, and then I bounce back again," he told ET.
Jon also admitted that he doesn't "have a relationship with Kate," and that they primarily communicate through text and email saying 'I don't physically see her."
Taylor Armstrong also joins the cast with her new boyfriend, Jon Bluher. Taylor's ex husband was physically and emotionally abusive, and then ultimatly committed suicide. So Taylor is a prime candidate to be on Couples Therapy. She'll need to work through her prior dramatic past in order to have a successful relationship with Jon, who happened to be Taylor's divorce lawyer.
Taylor admitted she was hesitant to reveal her tale of abuse after her ex husband Russell was found hanged in a Los Angeles home August 15, 2012 after the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills second season had been taped. But now that she is open with the physical and emotional abuse, Couples Therapy could be a useful tool in getting over her ex's manipulations.
Taylor said her lowest moment in the marriage came when she was "on [her] knees over a toilet with my jaw not in the place it was supposed to be" after Russell injured her during one of her breakdowns.
"There was saliva running out of my mouth and I was thinking, 'How am I not going to call an ambulance? How do I protect him? I don't want him to go to jail.'"
Taylor said as she hovered over the toilet, injured, "The only thing I could think of was - forget my jaw, I want to protect him."
Taylor began seeing John shortly after her ex died because he was working for her on a lawsuit they were involved in, and they've been seeing each other ever since.
"I have met the love of my life. He's amazing, he's perfect, he's everything I've ever wanted in my life... He's diving in the pool right now, and he's the most beautiful man I've ever met in my life," Taylor said. Let;s hope the new therapy will help Taylor become stronger for her new love to succeed.
And then there's Farrah Abraham whose determination to be on the hit VH1 show has paid off because the Teen Mom turned sex tape star has gotten her way. Though Abraham is single, the VH1 show has given into Farrah and will let her have therapy detailing her other past failed relationships.
According to Radar Online, "Basically they are going to bring people from her past - family, friends, ex-boyfriends - to help her understand why she can't make any of her relationships work and they fail."
"Farrah is definitely appearing on the next season of VH1′s Couples Therapy. She was desperate to be on it last season, but since she couldn't get anyone to go on it with her, Catelynn and Tyler, from Teen Mom were cast instead," the RadarOnline source confirmed.
Farrah tweeted on November 8th about how she is shooting the show:
Filming is no joke 24/7

Couples Therapy has already began shooting and is set to air early in 2014. How do you feel about the new cast?
