March 27 (UPI) — Jon Gosselin says he plans to perform as a stripper in New Jersey.
The 39-year-old DJ and former “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that he will make his debut as a male entertainer at Dusk nightclub in Atlantic City in April.
“I work at Dusk nightclub in Atlantic City,” he said of the Caesars Atlantic City venue. “I’m a member of the Senate DJ group and I also help with promotion. I DJ at the club sometimes, but I find promotion is more rewarding, both financially and emotionally.”
Gosselin will perform as a stripper April 1 in the nightclub’s Men Untamed Revue show. He admitted there was previously “no way” he ever imagined himself stripping.
“I’m an integral part of the show,” the star said. “Being part of something is a blessing. Since I joined Senate DJ I’ve felt like I belong to something and I’m not just out there on my own — I feel as if I’m a part of a fraternity or brotherhood.”
Dusk co-owner Eric Millstein told People that Men Untamed Revue is an “R-rated, not X-rated” show. He compared the show to performances seen in the 2012 movie “Magic Mike,” and said it will feature choreography from a former Las Vegas showgirl.
“Jon has been rehearsing every week,” Millstein said.
Gosselin came to fame on the TLC series “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” which was renamed “Kate Plus 8” after his divorce from Kate Gosselin. The show follows Kate and her eight children with Gosselin, twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah.
