Much like his ex-wife before him , Jon Gosselin is getting into the book business.
Just in case the viewing public didn’t get a good enough look at Gosselin’s parenting magic on “Jon and Kate Plus 8” or during the his post-TV paparazzi phase, the former reality-TV star plans to write a book showcasing his skills.
According to PopEater, the father of multiples is still in the early stages of his upcoming tome and while he hasn’t found his hook yet, he feels his personal insight into the parent trap must be part of the project.
“Jon is still deciding what exactly the book will be about, but knows he wants to focus on his parenting skills,” a Gosselin pal revealed. “There is no deal yet or timeline, but the (interest) in Jon from publishers is huge right now, so he's going to strike while the iron is hot.”

Of course, Gosselin won’t strike alone. Helping the literary-minded dad is his life and leadership coach Sylvia Lafair, the same specialist who taught him how to “hone his skills to be a better leader in his family and with his kids” after his divorce.
When the first buzz about a possible Gosselin book began back in July, Lafair hinted that such a story would likely include most of the man’s life-changing moments. But an insider who spoke to PopEater explained that some of the most interesting moments won’t make the cut.
“What the book won't be focusing on is how quickly he moved on, after Kate, with two much younger girlfriends, his partying nights in Las Vegas or his new huge tattoo that covers his entire back,” the source said.
Rachel Uchitel address new Tiger Woods rumor
The rumor mill can’t seem to decide just who celebrity mistress-turned-“Celebrity Rehabber” Rachel Uchitel wants to romance next.
While some reports have Tiger Woods’ alleged ex-other woman in the arms of fellow “Rehab” star Jeremy London, the latest word from gossip website TMZ is that Uchitel is pining for her former forbidden flame.Slideshow: Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren in happier days
“I feel horrible for him,” Uchitel is said to have told a friend after learning Woods’ divorce was final. “He loved (his wife). But he was in love with me. I hope he remembers that was real, and reaches out to me ... I'd give up everything to be with him again.”
Or not — who knows? While Uchitel took time out to deny the London chatter in an interview with Gossip Cop, she remained vague and uncharacteristically punny when asked about of the golf champ, simply stating that such rumors were “par for the course.”
Dish on the fly
Jesse James is a jerk, or at least that’s the impression one of James’ three ex-wives currently has. Janine Lindemulder, aka the one before Sandra Bullock, is furious with the biker after yet another custody clash over their child. “I gave up time with my daughter so that Sunny could travel with her dad,” she told Radar Online. When she later learned her little girl was in town all the while, Lindemulder lost it. “I sat at home crying when I could have been with my daughter but Jesse just did not care; he was being cruel and selfish.” … Longtime Miley Cyrus pal and age-inappropriate “Hannah Montana” fan Stephen Baldwin has a problem with the racy new direction the teen queen’s career has taken. “I think, as a person of faith, she needs to calm down a little bit,” the born-again Baldwin brother told OK! magazine. “That pole-dancing and all that, I think that’s not very good. I’m sure it’s not in keeping with her faith.” Despite that criticism, the 45-year-old reality TV regular, who just happens to sport his very own “Hannah Montana” tattoo, insisted, “I still love her; always will.”
