The media has been following Jon Gosselin's every step in Park City, Utah, as he navigates an alien world. We didn't expect to see this Jon and Kate Plus 8 star at the Sundance Film Festival, but he's there, busy with blankets.
Supposedly hit with another bout of self-promotion, the father of eight was spotted at the Talent Resource's Sky Suite Lounge. He was, as usual, accompanied by his girlfriend Morgan Christie.
According to Msnbc.com, the reality TV star then worked his way to the Blanket America campaign that day. He helped out and gave blankets to poverty-stricken Americans, which is one of the organization's objectives.
While he did make an appearance for that, he refused to have photographs of himself taken. He wouldn't even do a PSA. Apparently, he was still hindered by "issues with TLC" for incidents such as those.
However, a source close to the network and familiar with Jon Gosselin's agreement with them revealed otherwise. "No one is trying to stop him from giving blankets to the poor. He just has to loop TLC into his plans. He wasn't doing that, which is why he ran into trouble with the network," the insider said.
Despite staying out of trouble with the network though, the Jon and Kate Plus 8 star managed to exasperate several onlookers. He and Morgan Christie were spotted exhibiting "inappropriate" displays of affection all throughout.
An eyewitness told Us Magazine what Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend were doing. "Tons of PDA, holding hands, kissing," the source revealed. "They kept walking around, it's not like they tried to be discreet and stay in a corner. Anyone who saw him remarked how inappropriate it was. Gosselin seemed to love the attention."
No one could stop the reality TV dad though. He was still in good spirits, and was even overheard saying: "This year I'm having fun. I just went snowboarding, I'm relaxing with my girlfriend."
