TLC officially announced last week that Kate Plus 8, former known as Jon & Kate Plus 8, will go on without Jon. However, Jon’s lawyer revealed to TMZ this week that the 32 year-old broke reality star is “definitely open” to co-starring with ex-wife Kate on a new TV project.
Jon’s lawyer Anthony F. List, tells TMZ that “under the right circumstances” Jon would do a show with Kate, but “the contract would have to be tighter.” He failed to elaborate on what he meant on the having a “tighter” contract.
As expected, TLC is not interested in having Jon back on the network. A source tells RadarOnline that Jon is not welcome at TLC or the Discovery network. “The show will go on – without Jon,” the source added. “Nobody wants him back on the air.”
In other Kate news, her own brother Kevin Kreider, whom she is estranged from, testified at a Philadelphia hearing on child labor laws and reality shows today, and he did not have nice things to say about Kate or the TLC show.
Kevin said he believes the 8 Gosselin children suffered psychological damage while filming Jon & Kate Plus 8. According to Kevin,the kids had no privacy during the taping — even their potty training was captured on video. Kevin also claims the kids were manipulated by producers who wanted drama.
TLC however denies Kevin’s claims, telling TMZ, the allegations are “either completely inaccurate or a distorted representation for maximum attention.”
