Gosselin shows regret

Embattled reality star Jon Gosselin admits he got “carried away by thechallenges of fame”

Embattled reality star Jon Gosselin admits he got “carried away by the challenges of fame” and is consulting with a rabbi to “reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self,” usmagazine.com reports.

In a statement, the father of eight, 32, tells the website, “I am troubled to learn that the media has accepted as true the scurrilous rumour that I would appear in a reality television program with Nadya Suleman. This is utterly false.

“I do, however, accept that some of my previous actions have in some way lent credence to such outrageous stories.

“I further accept that I have allowed myself to become somewhat severed from my own moral anchor and be carried away by the challenges of fame.

“It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect.”

Gosselin says he has agreed to a forum at New York’s West Side Synagogue this Sunday where he intends to publicly apologize in a sacred space to those whom he has hurt.
