Jon Gosselin loves his life away from the eye of reality TV cameras, a life now filled with working a traditional job and spending time with his eight kids.
"It just wasn't for me in the end," the former "Jon & Kate Plus 8" star told Access Hollywood at Svedka's Second Annual Night of a Billion Reality Stars bash in Los Angeles when asked about appearing on his former popular TLC series.
"I've been working 9 to 5, I'm a network engineer at a local IT company right by [my] kids' house," the 34-year-old dad told Access.
The former reality TV star has traded in lavish vacations, New York City bachelor pads and partying on Christian Audigier's yatch in St. Tropez for life at a slower pace.
"I have a house in the woods," he added "I do no normal things."
