Jon Returns Home to See the Kids

Jon Gosselin has returned home to Pennsylvania to see his eight kids.

Jon, who was smoking a cigarette in most of the photos taken of him, was spotted Tuesday in Wernersville at a car wash, a UPS store and the bank.

Jon had been in New York City, where he recently snapped up a bachelor pad on the Upper West Side and where he found himself embroiled in more scandal.

He has been linked to two different women in two weeks: 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate's 2006 tummy tuck, and Star tabloid reporter Kate Major, who resigned over her relationship with Jon.

Jon now says he is single - and vowed to over the weekend that he wants to stay out of the headlines.

"It's crazy," he told Us. "I don't want [8-year-old twins] Mady and Cara Googling me, and I have to explain [a photo] and lose that trust between my children. No, it's dumb. Or explain it to my ex, Kate. Or explain to anybody what's going on."

Jill Zarin, the Bravo reality star who dined with Jon last week in the Hamptons, told Us Monday night that the 32-year-old father of eight is going through a lot.

Said Zarin, "He's got a lot of figuring out to do."
