(Newser) – Divorce and family breakup aside, Jon Gosselin still wants Kate's friendship—at least according to his new pal Michael Lohan, People reports. "He would love to be friends with her," says Lindsay Lohan's estranged dad. "They had eight kids and he would like to work things out the right way." Lohan's bromance with Jon flourished today, as they walked on the beach and shopped in the Hamptons for a polo match.

"A lot of opportunities are opening up for him," Lohan says, meaning possible endorsements. "He's fantastic and upbeat and said that he just wanted to concentrate on his kids and his career and his life." Neither of Jon's recent gal pals, Hailey Glassman and Kate Major, are in the picture: "He's not concentrating on a relationship with any woman." At the polo match, Jon disagreed, Us reports: "My heart is always with Hailey."
