Jon Gosselin Working as Waiter, Lives in Cabin (Video)

Jon Gosselin used to live in an $1.3 million home and star in a TLC reality series that 10 million people watched every week.

However, now the former henpecked-husband of Kate Gosselin works as a waiter and lives in a cabin in the woods with no Internet or television (video below).

Jon recently told Entertainment Tonight how radically his life has changed since the hit series "Jon & Kate Plus Eight."

He admitted having trouble finding work after his cheating scandal (which he still denies) and the pricey divorce from his ex-wife.

The 36-year-old father of eight kids said he lost his job as the director of sales and promotions for Gameface International and then was employed as a construction worker for a company that did solar panel installation.

These days, he works as a waiter at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.

"At first I was nervous 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,'" said Jon.

"I don't regret anything. You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today. I [party] now on a different level."

After separating from Kate in 2009, Jon was seen partying all over the world, but claims that was actually a job to pay his legal bills and $22,000 a month in child support.

However, it doesn't look like Kate is finished twisting the knife.

She is suing Jon for allegedly stealing her computer hard drive and hacking into her phone to get material for a 2012 book, "Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World."

The book, not written by Jon, claimed that Kate told TLC that she would only stay (for free) in one of New York City's finest hotels, Essex House, and had a very picky menu for herself and the kids, noted The Huffington Post.

The book also claims Kate made $687, 500 on the seventh and final season of the reality series, not including her endorsement deals or her gig on "Dancing With the Stars."
