Jon Gosselin may have halted production on Kate Plus 8, but that doesn't mean his TV career is over.

Jon -- who has been been approached by pal Michael Lohan to join the Celebrity Boxing Federation -- tells Entertainment Tonight he'll "continue on television" and that he's "not worried about future employment."

(Lohan told Usmagazine.com on Monday that his show with Jon, The Divorced Dad's Club, "looks good.")

The dad of eight, 32, also admits he made a mistake by withdrawing money from a shared bank account with estranged wife Kate.

"It was just after arbitration and we weren't supposed to take money out of the restrictive account and we both did," he says.

Adds Jon, "I was found in contempt for doing so. I didn't realize, I thought I was just taking my paycheck out."

Look back on Jon's scandalous past

Jon says he's been ordered to return $155,000 to the account, which originally held $231,000. (Kate said on the Today show that Jon left her with just $1,346, and she couldn't pay the family's bills as a result.)

Money that Kate took from the account is "unaccounted for," Jon alleges, adding that lawyers are reviewing their accounting paperwork and will know "what's going on" by Friday.

"I'm gonna be truthful and abide by the court and I'll put it back," Jon says. "And she has to do the same."

On Tuesday, a judge ordered the money returned before an Oct. 26 court date.

Jon also tells ET that he wishes he could have spoken to Kate at Tuesday's divorce hearing.

"I thought about doing that, but in a public setting as a public figure you have to watch what you say and do," he says.
