Jon Gosselin wouldn't mind punching the clock instead of appearing on a hit TLC reality show.

"I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I'm living. This is 24/7," he told outside his $1.1 million Pennsylvania home Monday. "I don't even want to do taping for the show anymore."

But Gosselin says he's stuck filming and doing promotional appearances to make as much money as possible. (A source also tells the current issue of Us Weekly that he's "suspicious" Kate is hiding cash ahead of their divorce proceedings. They make an estimated $75,000 per episode.)

"I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work," he told Us.

Later that day, Gosselin taped Jon & Kate Plus 8 with the kids at the Lower Heidelberg Fire Company in Berks County, Pa. The family threw a fundraising lemonade stand.

Gosselin smiled and posed with local young women while wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with "Lies, Lies, Lies, Lies" and big sunglasses.

A witness says the crew filmed the kids for about an hour playing with firemen, who showed off all their equipment.
