Kate Gosselin & TLC want to keep milking the kids

October 1st, 2009 // 64 Comments

Jon Gosselin is dropping nuclear publicity bombs all over Kate today. According to TMZ, he’s been actively trying to shut down the show for months for the sake of the kids while TLC and Kate want to keep them in front of the cameras. But, however, Jon’s also been haggling with getting out of his contract to pursue other projects:

Sources on both sides tell us Jon Gosselin has been asking for his exit papers from the show for several months. Production sources say they were willing to continue giving Jon a full paycheck and not put him on the show, but there was one string attached — that he couldn’t do any other show without the permission of TLC. BTW, that’s a standard condition in TV-land.
Production sources say Jon’s lawyer was demanding that TLC let Jon do any show he wanted but TLC wouldn’t budge. Production sources say Jon’s lawyer then threatened to shut down production by claiming the show wasn’t good for the kids, and that’s just what happened.
But sources connected with Jon tell us Jon had been complaining for months about his kids being on the show and that the kids themselves were complaining. These sources say Jon was blindsided when TLC released a statement that the show would be called “Kate Plus 8″ and that the result would be that the kids would have to be on camera a lot more.

Okay, so Jon’s simply looking out for his kids and, admittedly, his love of wearing Ed Hardy clothes to pick up borderline cat-women. Meanwhile Kate just wants to suck on the teat of fame and force her children to essentially work in a sweatshop for mommy. Glad that’s cleared up.

    Penelty? Oh dear.

  3. Pita

    Jon only did this bc TLC kicked him off the show. If he can’t wh0re his kids out, no one can!




    they didn’t even spell his name right.

    What’s with the sign? Johnathon??? Hopefully Jon knows how to spell his own name.

  7. wikipedia

    nigga didn’t even spell my favorite word right.

  8. Tunacrab

    Penelty? lol.

  9. Duh

    The text on the sign is obviously faked. Wake up, doofuses.

  10. anjee

    Penalty: P E N A L T Y. Penalty.

  11. The all caps shows that he MEANS BUSINESS!

    This is a very bold move Jon. It shows what an amazing player you are in the game of life. I wish you well but my heart belongs to Spencer Pratt. Perhaps you could do me a favor and use your persuasive ways with Heidi and seduce her. That would make more quality alone time for me and my man.


  13. Lisa

    Looks to me like someone flunked spelling!

  14. Right… who wouldn’t want to get paid to act like a family… sucks being rich.

    @6. Marissa

    Johnathon is his full legal name; Jon is just his nick name.

  16. JoMama

    Think he had the kids make the sign? Isn’t one of the kids doing the new Microsoft commercials?

  17. Dude of Dudes

    I didnt see a disclaimer:

    “** – unless you are the magic fairy of homely poondom….then by all means, come on in”

    I call fake.

  18. JESTE

    Pay me for letting you exploit my kids and let me make money doing other shows at the same time bitches!

  19. Ing

    What I want to know is why ‘Jonathans’ shorten their names to John, but ‘Johnathans’ shorten their names to Jon………???

  20. EuroNeckPain

    As a foreigner, I don’t know who this Gosselin guy is, and why he takes up half the space on this blog. He is not good looking at all, not interesting, and he can’t spell. I don’t want to read about this boring dude and I don’t feel like looking at him either.

  21. Fruity

    Jon’s got his little rice dick in one hand and this cardboard sign in another.

    “YEAH! Who’s fucking who now Kate! Who’s getting bent over now Kate? Who’s getting the business end of the strap-on this time?……not me….sniff..”

    “oh, by the way, it’s all for the kids!”

  22. KG


    Oh and Kate is just her nickname, too. Her real name is K8.

  23. Bad Bad MAN



    TLC and that cunt Kate tried to shut down Jon, but he took a big fat shit on Kate plus 8.

  24. Delgo

    I printed that for him at Popcopy.

  25. Go to bed with dogs you wake up with fleas.

    @ 20 – Right on!

  26. really

    guys – it’s NOT a real sign. -very gullible and naive this crowd…

  27. Andrea

    Good for him, its about time! Kate would never have stopped it herself, Someone had to step in. I can’t stand either of them, but atleast Jon’s making an attempt to protect his kids from the glaring camera’s. I’m sure the kids have had enough. They both need to find other means to make money, out of the public eye. That means no more tv circuits for you Kate. TLC is just as bad as these two. Boycott TLC, Jon and Kate. Their time is up.

    Too bad the douche bag cannot spell

    Gonna go out, gonna run a Johnathon.

  32. Alex

    JOHNATHON can’t spell Jonathan or PENALTY…haha I hope they cancel this stupid show, and they both get real jobs to pay for the 8 things they created

  33. Jenna

    Given that we’re talking about Jon Gosselin – we aren’t really that gullible in believing that he made that sign. :-D

  34. Shnockums

    Penelty? Yeah way to go you fat ass, go re-grease your fat bulgy eyeballs with another can of Crisco. Dork.

  35. Jenna

    The sign is real. The sign was actually put on the Gosselin property. They just don’t know if it was put up by them: http://news.lalate.com/2009/10/01/jon-gosselin-tlc/

    Don’t hold your breath. You have some nerve to think your getting the first post Heidi Skin-toned mustache ride. Now, I know there’s plenty of Skin-toned Beard but you better get in line and wait…or threesome. There’s nothing hotter than a Randals sandwich with some Spencer meat. MMM-MMM


  37. ediegirl

    Maybe he needs to find a new sponsor…one that will offer him free spelling lessons! A little lesson in integrity and being a decent human being wouldn’t hurt either. He’s SO over.

  38. Yeah, those penelty-ies can be pretty rough. And yes, Jon is doing this because he was minimized in the show…the timing is too obvious.

  39. Helen Lovejoy

    Won’t someone PLEASE think of the children?

  40. Phil McCracken

    Who the fuck is Jon Gosselin and why the fuck is he always on this site? Also, why are you people watching TLC?

  41. Gilbert Grape

    @6: a “Johnathon” is when a trick needs to drum up customers/cash pretty fast.

  42. alibi

    They both had jobs before. They chose to quit those jobs. Now, they need to go back to normal jobs and support their kids, instead of the kids supporting them. Way to go, Jon! Shut ‘er down!

    PENELTY!!! Ha! Jackass…. Try P-E-N-A-L-T-Y!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should spend his pocket change on some spelling lessons :).

  45. LPB

    Doe she still have to sit down to pee, like his wife forced him to do when he was married?

  46. PsyKo

    TLC = The Learning Channel… I think he pretty much deserves to get banned for life after writing so poorly…

    Dear SW,

    Please stop posting pieces on Jon FUCKING Gosselin. He looks like 8 lbs of shit in a 6 lbs bag. I will lose my mind if I see another post about this fat bastard. I do not give a shit about this z-list “celeb” nobody. I have NO IDEA why he is always on this site. I cant even read what you say about him anymore cause it pisses me off – hes a boring, greasy little cunt and no person in their right mind should give a damn what hes up2.. basically hes a cunt and i dont wanna see his fat fucking head on my computer anymore.

    Should I ever see him walking around (ireland.. so unlikely), I will throw, at his face, whatever I happen to have in my hands or in my pockets. Hopefully Im in the pub so we all get to see a big bottle of Bulmers impact his cranium at an obscene rate of knots.

    Penelty [sic] of Trespass?! So, if they go on his property, he’ll trespass on theirs? I guess that is a serious penalty.


    #19….JONATHAN is abbreviated JON….JOHNATHON is a stupid spelling and JOHN should be the abbreviated version. JOHN is a name that shouldn’t be a shortened version of anything.
