Kate Gosselin Rejects Jon Gosselin Advice to Get a Normal Life

Despite advice from ex-husband Jon Gosselin to get “back to a normal life,” Kate Gosselin says the cancellation of her reality show, Kate Plus 8, won’t keep her off TV. In an interview with Matt Laeur on Today, Kate Gosselin said she plans on “continuing in TV as a way to provide for my kids.”

When Kate Gosselin learned that TLC had cancelled Kate Plus 8, she told People that she was “freaking out” about how she would support her eight kids. Ex-husband Jon Gosselin, speaking to RumorFix.com, suggested she focus on getting “back to a normal life — a simple life,” expressing his opinion that “reality TV is not a career.”

Kate Gosselin totally dismissed her ex-husband’s advice. “Jon may be acceptive of mediocre for his kids,” she told Matt Laeur. “I want the best for my kids.” So, well, apparently if you are not having cameras following around your children and surrounding them with nannies and ‘handlers’ while you jet off for publicity appearances, you are giving your children only a “mediocre” life.

According to Kate Gosselin, her fans are simply “devastated” that they won’t get to watch her whine about how difficult everything in the universe is while flipping around her chemically abused blond hair and yelling at her eight kids and endless assistant/nannies/children wranglers.

Kate Gosselin hinted big time that she would be quite willing to sign on to another reality TV show. “If the right thing came along, I think we all are still in agreeance with it. I’m sure you will see my kids again at some point,” she said.

Meanwhile, poor Kate is beside herself about how she’ll keep up the lavish lifestyle and crazed traveling to which she has become accustomed. “There’s also fear because this has been, although maybe not my career, has been the start essentially of my career and my job and the way I’ve been providing for my kids for six years. And so, you know, it is a little scary,” she said.

Jon Gosselin Glad Kate Plus 8 Cancelled – Kate Gosselin Scared

Jon Gosselin, ex-husband to Kate Gosselin and father of the Gosselin horde, is glad TLC has cancelled Kate Plus 8, the reality show featuring his ex-wife and children.  Jon Gosselin says he is “very relieved” that his eight kids will no longer be in front of the cameras.

“I hope they can have more private family moments,” Jon Gosselin told RadarOnline.com.  “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.” Gosselin said he learned of the Kate Plus 8 cancellation news from a press release.

Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, is not at all happy about having Kate Plus 8 cancelled. Not long ago, Kate Gosselin had been gushing about how it would be cool to see the show follow her eight children all the way through high school.

On her Twitter feed, Kate Gosselin expressed her concern about supporting her eight kids financially with the show cancelled. “One mom and 8 kids = scary!!!! But I’ll make it happen.. Lotsa prayer and hard work as always.” Gosselin told one follower: “I plan on staying on tv 🙂 but if I have to to provide for my 8 lovelies, of course!”

“I wish I didn’t have to say it was so, my faithful followers,” Kate Gosselin told her fans of the cancellation on Twitter. “Thx for adventuring with us for SIX years! We love you!”

Jon Gosselin, who shares joint custody with ex-wife Kate Gosselin of the couple’s eight children, told RadarOnline.com he hopes the show being cancelled will lead Kate to ‘dedicate more time to the kids.’ Gosselin is currently living in a Pennsyvania apartment near his ex-wife and children with his girlfriend, Ellen Ross.

Kate Gosselin has expressed that she is ready to start dating again too, but so far doesn’t seem to have any takers…

Jon Gosselin Fires Attorney, Working Things Out with Kate

Jon Gosselin claims his lawyer lied when he said the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was trying to wrangle custody of his eight children away from ex-wife Kate Gosselin. The former reality TV dad has reportedly fired attorney Anthony List Sr. and wants to work things out ‘amicably’ with Kate.

Jon Gosselin’s former attorney allegedly told TMZ.com recently that his client wanted primary custody of his kids because Kate Gosselin was an “absentee mom.” Gosselin says Anthony List Sr. went forward with legal filings for custody of the kids without his permission.

“I never wanted primary custody, he [List] filed for that,” Gosselin told TMZ.com on Thursday. “I only wanted a more flexible custody schedule so I could be with my kids.”

Gosselin posted a message to his Twitter account saying he had fired List on April 15. “He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf,” Gosselin Tweeted. Despite rumors of a heated custody battle between them, Jon Gosselin says he and Kate Gosselin are “moving to work out things privately and amicably.”

Gosselin’s former attorney, however, claims he had permission to file for primary custody. “Jon signed off on everything,” List told TMZ.com.

Jon and Kate Gosselin are due in court May 25 for a custody hearing. We hope these two really can put aside their differences for the sake of their kids and stop battling out their crap in the media.

Kate Gosselin Says Dancing With the Stars Not More Important than Kids

Appearing on NBC’s Today show on Tuesday, Kate Gosselin said being a single mom has left her with no choice but to take gigs like Dancing With the Stars. Gosselin said she is not choosing fame over her kids, but she “has to provide” somehow for her eight children.

“I’ve got to work harder now than ever because I am a single mom,” Kate Gosselin said on the Today show. “In my heart, I’m always in my kitchen, baking and cooking for my kids, and I’ll always be there,” Gosselin said. “It’s a struggle to be here [in New York], to be anywhere… The emotion that you see is because I would rather be at home with them.”

“It’s a struggle that every working mom, especially single moms, go through, and I’m really feeling it now, and it’s really hard,” Gosselin added.

In addition to appearing on Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin is also practicing constantly with partner Tony Dovolani at home in her basement and promoting her new book, I Just Want You to Know. Gosselin says that she does everything she can to make time for her kids when she is not working.

“I am on the first flight as soon as the show lets me out, and that’s my night of sleep. I get home, and I dance, and I am done by the time they get home from school, and I spend the rest of the week with them,” she said. “But I make the most of every minute I have with them… When I’m home, we make those little spots of time really big in our memories.”

Kate Gosselin and ex-husband Jon Gosselin are due in court May 25 for a custody hearing on the former couple’s eight children. Jon Gosselin has filed a motion seeking primary custody of the kids, calling his ex-wife an “absentee mom.”

Jon Gosselin Wants to Reunite with Kate Gosselin on TV

Jon Gosselin is apparently eager to get back with ex-wife Kate Gosselin – at least on TV. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality TV dad says he is “definitely open” to co-starring with his former wife on a new TV project.

Of course, since Jon Gosselin is reportedly preparing to sue Kate Gosselin for full custody of their kids, we’re thinking she’s probably not very open to that idea. Still, Jon Gosselin doesn’t seem to think a little thing like a nasty custody battle should interfere in his quest to get back on television.

Gosselin’s attorney told TMZ.com his client would certainly be happy to consider co-starring with his ex-wife on a new TV program “under the right circumstances.” One condition of such collaboration, Gosselin’s attorney said, would be a much “tighter” contract. Jon Gosselin got slammed by TLC not long ago for allegedly breaching his contract with the network by doing interviews and endorsements without their permission.

Last week, Jon Gosselin’s lawyer revealed the former reality TV dad was preparing to sue Kate Gosselin for full custody of their eight children because her quest for fame is “damaging his kids.” Gosselin claims his ex-wife is an “absentee mom” who cares more about her career than the welfare of her children, citing her gig on Dancing With the Stars as an example.

Then, naturally, Jon Gosselin turns right around and talks about how he wants to get some of that fame back for himself. Well, considering he’s unemployed and paying out huge loads of cash to Kate Gosselin in spousal support, we’re not surprised. We’re pretty sure Kate Gosselin will be telling him to stuff it all the way around. And a judge isn’t likely to award full custody of their kids to a man with pretty much no job and a shaky string of girlfriends rotating through his door.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Custody Battle Over Dancing With the Stars?

Jon Gosselin apparently thinks his ex-wife Kate Gosselin is spending too much time on her Dancing With the Stars gig and not enough with their kids. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is reportedly preparing to ask a judge to grant him primary custody of their children.

Jon Gosselin’s lawyer, Anthony F. List, told TMZ.com his client is ready to petition for primary custody of his eight children with ex-wife Kate Gosselin. List called her an “absentee mom” who does not spend enough “quality time with the 8 kids.” Gosselin allegedly plans to use his ex-wife’s gig on Dancing With the Stars as evidence that she is ignoring their children in favor of her career.

Jon Gosselin also may ask for spousal and child support from Kate Gosselin, a reverse of the judge’s previous ruling. List said it was “ridiculous” for Jon Gosselin to be paying his ex-wife $20,000 a month for child support when she is allegedly not spending any time with the kids.

Any way you slice it, it’s really the kids here that are getting screwed. It’s either “absentee” mom or girlfriend-hopping, unemployed dad. Neither seems all that fabulous of a choice in our opinion.

Ex-Girlfriend Hailey Glassman Denies Jon Gosselin Burglary

Hailey Glassman is denying she had anything to do with the burglary of former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin’s NYC apartment on Christmas. Gosselin’s lawyer, Mark Heller, is accusing Glassman of ransacking and vandalizing the former reality TV dad’s apartment.

Jon Gosselin’s New York apartment was allegedly burglarized over the Christmas holiday while he was spending time with ex-wife Kate Gosselin and their eight kids. His clothing and bedding were reportedly slashed and his plasma TV and other expensive items missing. Mark Heller released a statement to the press saying Gosselin’s ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman was caught on a security camera at the scene.

“Hailey Glassman is going to jail,” Heller said. “It’s as simple as that. The building security tape will not lie and the evidence will speak for itself.”

Hailey Glassman has declaimed the accusations she ransacked Jon Gosselin’s apartment. Glassman’s attorney, Anand Ahuja, says someone is trying to “frame” her client. “To me, it appears to be a huge publicity stunt,” Ahuja said in a press statement. “It appears that somebody is trying to frame my client… because she didn’t take anything from that apartment that she was not entitled to take with her.”

Gosselin’s attorney said a note signed by Glassman was left in his client’s apartment. Glassman has not addressed the alleged note, but posted on her Twitter feed on Friday that “the apartment everyone calls Jon’s apartment was my apartment as well… We split rent!”

So basically, Hailey Glassman says she was just moving out her stuff and Gosselin is an attention whore. Jon Gosselin says Glassman stole his stuff and trashed his apartment because she was pissed at him. The truth? Well, we’re betting it’s probably somewhere in between the lines. We just wonder how long it will take before that alleged video tape of Glassman ransacking Gosselin’s apartment will make its debut on the Net.
