What Jon Gosselin wants: $10,000 to $12,000 for a radio appearance.

What he doesn't want: Octomom Nadya Suleman.

Reps for the reality dad, 32, demanded "10-12K" to guest-host the MJ Morning Show, a radio show based in Tampa, Fl., TMZ reports.

Why such a hefty fee? The rep explained that Gosselin is "quite funny, sharp witted and interesting" and his appearance would be a "high point for the show." The station had already offered two first-class plane tickets and hotel room plus limo service for their would-be guest star, and turned down Gosselin's five-figure request.

(Update: Gosselin's rep told Access Hollywood that the radio station's claim is "Not true, radio looking for press off Jon. We turned them down.")

Meanwhile, the father of eight is drawing the line when it comes to his love life. After Nadya Suleman, 34, revealed her crush on Gosselin to RadarOnline ("I think he's hot!" she chirped) Monday, Gosselin didn't respond in kind.

"No way!" he told the website today. "I want to get through this divorce and focus on my kids. . . it's kind of weird though."

Gosselin is currently involved with Hailey Glassman, 22.
