"Reality television is not a career,” Jon says on RumorFix.com. “Get back to normal life, simple life, provide for your family, and go from there.”

Jon, who’s working as a computer support engineer, says he does see the kids on weekends as part of his custody agreement with Kate and he pays child support.

As for whether he feels Kate may need to downsize from her current farmhouse on 24 acres in Pennsylvania, he says it’s up to her, but adds, "I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house."
