Remember when Jon Gosselin was a lovable dad of eight kids on the TLC reality show “Jon & Kate Plus Eight”? And then how he it all kind of went off the rails when he and Kate divorced and his ex Hailey Glassman came out of the woodwork to talk about his small penis?

Well, things have quieted down for Gosselin since then. He tells “Entertainment Tonight” that he’s had a hard time finding a job because of his notoriety, so he’s waiting tables at Black Dog restaurant and living in a cabin in the Pennsylvania wilderness without the luxury of internet or TV.

“At first I was nervous [about the job] because I was like, ‘How are people
going to react?’ 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.”

He adds that he doesn’t regret anything from his time on reality TV — “You learn from your mistakes. That’s what builds you to who you are today.”
