Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin is not having a good week. First comes news TLC is considering suing Gosselin for appearing on Larry King Live in violation of his contract. Next comes the rumor 23-year-old Hailey Glassman has finally dumped him!
The shit really started hitting the fan when TLC made the announcement that Jon &Â Kate Plus 8 would be renamed as Kate Plus 8 and focus on Kate Gosselin’s role as a single mother of eight kids starting in November. Jon Gosselin responded by issuing legal threats to TLC and demanding all production on Jon & Kate Plus 8 be shut down immediately. Supposedly because he felt his kids were being treated badly by TLC, not because of that pesky loss of income.
“Jon is resolved not to allow the TLC corporate machine to devour his family and promote the monster’s best interests over those of his family,” Gosselin’s lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, said Thursday in a statement.
To vent his rage against the network he calls a “monster,” Jon Gosselin took his grievances to Larry King Live on Thursday night. However, Jon Gosselin is still under exclusive contract with TLC and did not have ‘permission’ to do the gig. So now TLC is considering suing his ass.
And if that isn’t enough drama in the Gosselins saga for one week,Â rumor hasÂ it Jon Gosselin’s girlfriend Hailey Glassman has dumped him! Gosselin hinted at the breakup on Larry King Live by saying Glassman would stand behind him “whether we’re together or not.” Glassman posted on her Twitter feed that “Its time 2 move on… No matter what I will always be there for Jon.Whether we are together or just friends,he will always have my family and my support.â€ Glassman’s rep told Access Hollywood the rumor is untrue and Gosselin and Glassman are still together. But frankly, we’re just not really buying it anymore.
Well, since Kate Gosselin is already in the works for a new talk show, if this spells the end of the TLC series, she’ll still be riding high – and milking her ‘struggle’ for every penny she can gleefully get. As for Jon Gosselin, he’s out a job and allegedly a girlfriend. Not all that surprising he is now trying to put the brakes on his divorcefrom Kate…
TLC has announced they have suspended filming of Jon & Kate Plus 8, or Kate Plus 8 as it will be known starting in November. The network announced the shut down after Jon Gosselin fired off a “cease and desist” letter to TLC demanding they vacate the family home and stop taping his kids.
TLC announced on Monday that Jon & Kate Plus 8 would be revamped as Kate Plus 8 starting in November. The new version of the show will focus on Kate Gosselin and her efforts to raise eight children as a single mother. Estranged husband Jon Gosselin was virtually removed entirely from the show.
Jon Gosselin apparently wasn’t too fond of losing his main source of income and demanded, through his lawyers, that production be shut down. TLC responded Wednesday with a statement saying they are “deeply disappointed at [Jon Gosselin’s] continued erratic behavior.”
“He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic,” the statement from TLC read. “Despite Jon Gosselin’s repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.”
The drama just continues to mount and we’re betting Jon Gosselin’s appearance on the Larry King Live show Wednesday night is only going to add more fuel to the already out-of-control fire.
Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin has slammed the brakes on both his divorce from estranged wife Kate Gosselin and production of the TLC reality show. The legal drama comes in the wake of an announcement from TLC earlier this week proclaiming Jon & Kate Plus 8 would be re-launching in November as just Kate Plus 8 – minus the Jon.
Apparently Jon Gosselin is seriously pissed at being dumped from the TLC reality show in favor of retooling the series to focus on Kate Gosselin and her ‘struggle’ as a rich, impeccably dressed single mom of eight kids. Jon Gosselin’s lawyer reportedly sent a nasty “cease and desist” letter to TLC stating: “Effective immediately no production crews are to enter Jon Gosselin’s family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authority to effectuate Police action against any trespassers.”
Not only has Jon Gosselin put a halt to production of the new Kate Plus 8 show, he’s also filed a delay in his divorce from Kate Gosselin. Lawyer Mark Jay Heller stated Jon “realized his family was like a train wreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show â€¦ because if he didn’t the family would be in a mortal accident â€¦ the victims of a train wreck.”
Even better, Jon Gosselin is allegedly claiming his children have been forced to work in violation of Pennsylvania Child Labor Law and have not been paid for their work for four years. Jon Gosselin’s attorney states his client has not given consent to allow his children to continue working for TLC and “is prepared to seek Court intervention to make sure his children’s best interests are protected.”
Hmmm. Sounds kind of noble on the surface, until you think about the fact that Jon Gosselin didn’t come out with any of this stuff about his kids needing protecting until after he was basically fired from TLC and likely found himself in a panic over how he’s going to support his swanky new expensive bachelor lifestyle.
Jon Gosselin is scheduled to appear on Larry King Live Wednesday night on CNN at 9pm. We’re sure he’ll have lots of awesome explanations and accusations to entertain viewers with.
It’s finally official. Starting in November, the TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be renamed and refocused as Kate Plus 8. TLC announced the change on Tuesday, saying the show will switch to focus on Kate Gosselin‘s role as a single mother to her 8 children.
Ratings for the TLC reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8 have continued to drop since Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their impending divorce and started whining endlessly about each other in the press ad nauseum. More and more on the show, Jon Gosselin has rapidly vanished from the picture.
But despite rumors Jon & Kate Plus 8 would soon be facing cancellation, the network announced on Tuesday it would instead be retooling the show to draw in the ‘single mom’ audience. “It’s not a huge shift, but it’s reflective of where the show was already going,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill said in a press statement. O’Neill also dismissed rumors Kate Gosselin had posted a message on her Facebook page speculating the series would soon go off the air. As we guessed earlier, the message was a fake.
Jon Gosselin will reportedly still be appearing occasionally on the show, but it will be less often. Less often would be pretty much almost never considering how little he’s been on it recently anyway.
Poor Jon Gosselin. Apparently all the media slamming over hisÂ endless alleged girlfriendsÂ is getting to him. Rumor has it Jon Gosselin is just a short step from being fired by TLC. Apparently, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star wouldn’t mind getting ditched by the network, calling his life a “nightmare”.
Yeah, we’re sure your life is oh so much worse than your children’s right now Jon. Amazing how he deftly manages to blame everyone else but himself for his troubles, no matter how many girls he’s sneaking in to snog while his kids are sleeping. And really, Jon is so sick of the paparazzi that he just can’t seem to STFU anytime they come anywhere near him. From magazine interviews to talk show appearances, Jon Gosselin just can’t seem to escape that spotlight he apparently detests so much.
Of course, Jon says it’s all about the money – naturally. So he’ll just have to keep whoring himself out – literally and metaphorically – even though he hates it so very much. Because heÂ apparently doesn’t abhor the limelight enough to give up his pricey new digs, or his sports car, or designer sunglasses, or… well, you get the picture.
If Jon Gosselin can’t manage to stop talking about how much he just can’t stand being the star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 anymore – it would be lovely for TLC to grant him his fondest desire and fire him AND Kate Gosselin already. It’s way past time for their 15 minutes of fame to be over.
Looks like Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin may have tangled with police again Thursday night. Police wereÂ allegedly called to the family home Thursday evening after yet another screaming argument.
Jon Gosselin and soon-to-be ex-wife Kate Gosselin were reportedly engaged in another nasty fight when police arrived on the scene around 7 p.m., according to PerezHilton.com.Â Details are sketchy about exactly what was going on or who decided to phone the police. Oddly it seems PerezHilton.com has taken down their original post about the second police-involved incident. So there is always the possibility the report is false, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s true.
Last Thursday night, police showed up at the family home to pry Jon and Kate Gosselin apart after a screaming fight over Jon’s alleged diddling with babysitter Stephanie Santaro. TMZ.com reported Kate Gosselin was the one who brought in the cops that time.
Seriously, for two supposed parents who are constantly swearing their kids are their top priority, Kate and Jon Gosselin sure don’t act like it. Mady and Cara are surely old enough to surf the internet by now. Which they probably do every time their parents aren’t hovering over them to quash every bit of freedom out of their lives.
If Kate Gosselin and Jon Gosselin truly gave a shit about their kids, they’d STFU, cancel their damn television show ASAP and give some vague attempt to be a normal divorced, dysfunctional family. Jon Gosselin might soon find himself fired from TLC soon anyway if the rumors have any substance, so it’s about time he got himself a real job.
Oh and Jon Gosselin, take those stupid earrings out of your ears, stop screwing the help and start taking some friggin’ responsibility for your actions. Nobody idiotic enough to saddle themselves with eight children has the right to act like an immature, mid-life crisis sucking asshat. Get over yourself. You lost the privilege to act like an overly horny, whiny teenager the minute you knocked up Kate the first time – much less being insane enough to do it the second time!
