Half-Assed Father Hounded Out of Sundance

Jon Gosselin

Really, Jon Gosselin--aren't we through with you yet?

Jon Gosselin, looking like a whale out of water, took a very obvious and public stroll today in Park City, Utah, with his girlfriend of the moment, Morgan Christie.

The gruesome twosome is making sure no one misses their anticipated arrival at the Sundance Film Fest, and here's how:

"They just kept walking up and down Main Street," a poor onlooker describes. "They were holding hands, and it was pretty obvious they wanted everyone to see them. They kept walking up and down the same street over and over."

Granted, Main is where all the Sundance action goes down, but just because it's Gosselin, gotta say it's 10 times more annoying.

Jon, dressed in jeans, a black puffy coat (with puffy face to match) and signature sunglasses, pretended he didn't like the one cameraman eagerly snapping his picture a foot or so ahead of them.

"It was weird though, it looked like the guy was hired or something," our Sundance spy tells us. "It seemed like there were a few paparazzi on Main, none of whom could care less about Gosselin. But this one camera guy made sure to go wherever Jon and his girlfriend were. It looked pathetic."

I think the operative word here is "pathetic."

Gosselin has no business trying to do anything legitimate in the entertainment/infotainment/reality television world at this moment. The country burned out on him last year. Having him appear for money anywhere is simply not a viable option. I don't think his wife has much going on, either. The problem is, these people burned too hot, and no one wants to watch someone trying to be famous as they ignore their kids.

He can certainly go to Sundance just to watch the films and hobnob, but, at what level? Is he making a film? Or is he lost? Trying to find a shooting range? Looking for a job in a coffee shop?
