The divorce of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars was set to conclude in October, but Jon and Kate may just have to stay married a bit longer. Charles J. Meyer, Jon Gosselin’s divorce attorney, has filed a petition in Pennsylvania to be removed as counsel scandal-plagued father of eight.

You know you have to be a grade A loser when even your divorce attorney doesn’t want to have anything to do with you.

Jon and Kate Gosselin filed for divorce in Montgomery County, PA in June. In court papers, Kate Gosselin called her relationship with Jon Gosselin “irretrievably broken.”

The two have been battling it out in private and in public ever since. Kate Gosselin said during her guest host sting on The View this week that she recently had a “meltdown” over Jon’s philandering ways. Jon, meanwhile, said on Good Morning America last week that he has grown to “despise Kate” for how she’s portrayed him in the media.

Kate Gosselin may have been appearing on The View on Monday as a guest host, but it wasn’t long before the topic turned to her own personal drama with estranged husband Jon Gosselin. After dishing on Kanye West‘s rude behavior on the VMAs Sunday and Serena Williams‘ outburst at the US Open, Kate Gosselin admitted to her own loss of control over the weekend.

When asked by The View co-host Sherri Shepherd how she felt about Jon Gosselin’s relationship with 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman, Kate Gosselin said: “This is definitely, I’m not going to lie, difficult… The truth, for the sake of my children, I’m going to take the high road.” Gosselin refused to discuss her drama with her soon-to-be ex-husband further, but did admit she had “a meltdown” in the privacy of her own home over the weekend.

Regarding those who think the Gosselins should just ditch Jon & Kate Plus 8 and focus on trying to live normal lives, Kate Gosselin said the show must go on. “I’m a single mom and I need a paycheck,” Gosselin said on The View. “Let’s face it, I have to support my children.”

Meanwhile, Jon Gosselin was spotted out and about having a grand time hopping after parties following the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. Interestingly, Jon was partying it up all night without girlfriend Hailey Glassman.
