Promptly Handled Kate Gosselin Cruise, Happiest 8th Birthday For The Sextuplets!

Jon Gosselin DJs Middle School Prom:

We don't want to say his career has gone to Pottsville....but Saturday night Jon Gosselin was the DJ for a middle school prom in Pottsville, PA. The father-of-eight and a former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star has a day job, working in construction, but last night Gosselin proved he also has a talent for spinning records. The 35-year-old was spotted at D.H.H Langel Middle School where he and his current squeeze – Liz Jannetta – kept the party going for the 13 and 14-year-olds.One of the kids exclusively tells that he gives JD Jon eight out of ten for his skills. “He played Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and Rihanna and he took requests. He was nice and I had a good time.” Our source even said he would go to another party with Jon as the DJ. Kate Gosselin's former spouse didn't just please the 100 teenage partygoers – a near impossible feat – he also charmed their moms. One mother was there when Jon and Liz arrived at 5:30 pm, an hour before the prom started. She says: “When they walked in, one of the moms went up to him and asked: ‘Are you Jon Gosselin?’ And he said: ‘Yes I am’. The next thing you know everyone started taking pictures. He was polite and smiling.”

As we previously reported
, Jon's new girlfriend has three kids of her own. “People might think it’s crazy to add her three kids to the mix, but it has been great," he said."Liz is a part time DJ and she got the gig for the prom," a source tells us exclusively. "Jon is very proud of her and was happy to be there to help her out."
And later, Jon himself tweeted about the event. "here with gf Liz. She is Djing for Prom. Company is HiTech. Just saying," Jon wrote to his followers. The theme of last night's prom was One Sweet Night – a farewell to the middle school years – and by all accounts Jon seemed to help the evening live up to its name Kate Gosselin's event on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship has been canceled because of poor turnout and low ticket sales. The mother of eight was supposed to set sail from August 12 to August 19 at a rate of $1,900-$3,175 per ticket, but it's no longer happening and all cruise-goers have been fully refunded.
"Yes, that event has been canceled. We just didn't get the turnout that we desired and mutually we agreed that if we didn't get it, we would cancel," President of Luxury Cruises, who merged with the company originally organizing the event, Alice Travel, exclusively told

"All ticket purchasers have been notified and everyone has been refunded. Some have chosen to continue on with the cruise, but everyone was given the choice."But don't be so quick to point the finger at the Kate Plus 8 star, as we're told she felt horrible about canceling the cruise and reached out to everyone who bought tickets!

"Kate asked for everybody's names, addresses and phone numbers and reached out to each one personally," the spokeswoman said. "It was nothing to do with her. We needed to hit certain numbers and they just weren't where they needed to be."It was not revealed how many tickets were actually purchased.

Kate Gosselin Shares Birthday Photos With Fans: Effie Orfanides at

Kate Gosselin and her brood celebrated the 8th birthday of her sextuplets on Thursday. The family had a low-key day at home, swimming and enjoying time together. The children opened presents and ate cake, and according to their mom, they had a great day.

Kate wrote a blog post on her website about this big birthday. It seems as though each year that passes, Kate realizes just how lucky she and her ex-husband, Jon, really are. They have eight happy, healthy, beautiful children. Not every parent is fortunate enough to have healthy multiples... nevermind two sets of healthy multiples. As Leah, Hannah, Alexis, Collin, Aaden, and Joel turn 8, fans of Kate Gosselin and her former reality show think back to where it all began—seeing the footage of Kate in the hospital and of the babies once they were born. However, those memories don't hit anyone harder than they do Kate and Jon. It was such an amazing yet difficult time for them, but they made it through. They now have eight (including twins, Cara and Mady) wonderful faces to be proud of each and every day.
