So who would have ever thought that Jon Gosselin would be reconciling with ex-wife Kate? It's crazy, right? I'm kidding, of course! The former Jon & Kate Plus Eight stars still despise one another, but I needed a good teaser. The pair is once again at odds in the media (because being pissed at each other in private doesn't garner any attention).
Lashing out about his wife's decision to feature their twins and sextuplets on a TLC update special, Jon is expressing his disgust and disappointment
with the fact he wasn't asked to be included at the lengths Kate will go to in exploiting their children. You know, I was truly on Jon's side until I watched him on Couples Therapy. Geez. Cue the violins!

Speaking to E! News, Jon admits, "I was heartbroken to learn my children are participating in yet another TV project, especially an 'update' special. Even without a current television show, they still live a very public life. They're still constantly in and out of the media; updates are given practically daily via social media," adding that he is frustrated with the network as TLC "didn't feel the situation warranted even a simple phone call to me."
Jon continues, "The special is to update people about their lives. Well, there are other people in their life besides their mother. They could have easily incorporated my children's grandparents, aunts, or uncles somehow, even without them appearing on camera, yet chose to exclude them. What message does this send to my children?"
Saying that he hopes "no one watches the show," Jon explains, "I'm not being spiteful, I'm worried for them. What if they're unhappy or embarrassed about how they're portrayed in the special? Growing up is hard enough; they don't needed the added pressure of being in the public eye. I still continue to desperately hope Kate will realize our children deserve a chance to be free to live a normal life, away from the cameras." Um, yeah. That's never going to happen, buddy!
Kate, not surprisingly, has a different take on the special. She recently told Us Weekly that her brood can't wait to be back on television, gushing, "They cheered like crazy. It was like I announced that it's Christmas tomorrow. Our crew walked in and it was like they had never left."
I'm still holding out hope for these two crazy kids!
