Well well well, it seems there is good reason Jon Gosselin is wanting to settle his current lawsuit with TLC. As we reported this weekend, Jon is now willing to allow TLC to film his kids again as long as they drop their current suit against him.
TMZ is reporting the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad wants to settle because he is simply too broke to fight TLC over the breach of contract lawsuit the network filed against him.
According to sources, Jon is not doing well financially, especially after TLC won an injunction last December prohibiting him from violating the non-compete clause in his contract, meaning he can’t make money by doing things he normally does – such as selling photos to magazines, being paid to appear on other shows, etc.
RadarOnline is also reporting that Jon has actually been talking to TLC about a settlement for the past 2 weeks. Apparently the only way TLC will agree to settle and drop the lawsuit against him is if he agrees to abide by the terms of his contract, no questions asked. TLC is reportedly wary of agreeing to this as they do not trust Jon.
In other news, Jon’s ex wife, Kate Gosselin hit up New York city this weekend and showed off her new shorter cut (she visited a hair salon earlier in the day). According to RadarOnline, she had dinner with a mystery man. Kate will be back in NYC March 11, as she is scheduled to guest host The View again that day.
Most recently eliminated Bachelorcontestant Corrie Adamson had some strong words during her recent exit interview from the show.
Corrie, who said she wasn’t surprised at her elimination, reveals she doesn’t believe any of the remaining four women would be a great fit for Jake Pavelka. “I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Corrie told reporters.
However Corrie believes out of the four women remaining, Jake has a stronger connection with two of them. “But I think that him and Vienna and Ali all had a really strong connection and I think Tenley is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved Gia to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see her and Jake together at all.”
When asked about her thoughts on Jake’s rumored pick – Vienna, Corrie said, “They had a strong connection and I won’t be surprised to see that. [But] I will be surprised if they last.”
And on the Vienna topic, she has been taking a lot of heat in the press lately for a few reasons. One — she is Jake’s rumored final pick, and two — she seems to have a lot of skeletons in her closet. The 23 year old former Hooters waitress and Orlando native, has an ex husband and ex fiance all at the age of 23.
Her ex husband,Josh Riley, and former mother-in-law recently came out in the press accusing her of cheating on her ex-husband with his friend while he was deployed in Iraq. Her ex mother-in-law even accused her of draining her ex-husband’s bank account to pay for her breast implants.
Her friends are now coming to her defense (the women on the show aren’t allowed to do press until they are eliminated or done with the show). A close family friend spoke to RadarOnline denying all claims that Vienna cheated on her ex, and that she stole money from him.
According to this friend, “Vienna was a straight A student at school and got an academic scholarship to go to college.” Apparently, Vienna’s family was devasted when she decided to leave college and marry Josh. She would later complete her college degree after her divorce. Vienna’s father helped the couple financially, said the close family friend and Josh was the one who called her from Iraq to call off the marriage.
The account she took money from was a joint account for the couple and Vienna left $5,800 in the account for Josh according to the friend. The friend goes on to say Vienna is a “good” and a “really sweet person.”
According to our recent poll, most readers believe Tenley is the best match for Jake, with Vienna being the worst match.
“I just, either way, didn’t see him with anyone, long-term, in all honesty,” Adamson, whom Pavelka rejected during Monday night’s broadcast, told reporters during a Thursday conference call.
“But I think that him and [Vienna Girardi] and [Ali Fedotowsky] all had a really strong connection and I think [Tenley Molzahn] is a really great girl and he’d be lucky to have her. And I loved [Gia Allemand] to death, she was one of my good friends while I was there — but I don’t see he and Jake together at all.”
Things continue to get messy for Tamra Barney and soon to be ex husband Simon Barney. According to Simon, Tamra has now began dating a close friend of his, in what he calls the “ultimate betrayal.”
RadarOnline is reporting that the Real Housewives of Orange County star has began dating Eddie Judge (pictured above with her), and according to Simon, he had to find out about this by seeing them together. Simon tells Radar this was so difficult for him that he actually dropped to his knees.
It all started when Simon visited the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday night. According to Simon, he thought Tamra was back in Los Angles, and was shocked to see her at the club with his friend around midnight.
“I walked in and I saw Tamra with a friend of mine, Eddie Judge,” Simon told RadarOnline. “I saw them holding hands and acting like a couple.” Simon continues, “As soon as Tamra saw me she let go of his hand and walked away.
“I went up to Eddie and asked him if he’s (bleeping) my wife. He didn’t say a word. I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife. I started to feel weak and feel to my knees. The doorman helped me and by the time I had regained my composure they both left to the other side of the club. I left soon after.”
But that’s not all! Tamra confirms to RadarOnline that she is indeed dating Eddie, saying – “I started dating Eddie Judge last week. We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year.”
Tamra continues, “We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both we would dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.”
There’s even more as Simon took to his facebook page and posted the following along with the below picture of he, Tamra and their friend Eddie.
“Eddie was a family friend.He has been at my dinner table with my kids breaking bread.Went to my daughters 4th B-day dinner.He has given me presents for christmas. Hugs me everytime he sees me.My family and me are devistated that he would stoop so low.There are plenty of women he could have gone after.MY WIFE.WOW!That is the lowest anyone could be in the world.Who needs enemies when you have friends like Eddie Judge.”

The two ladies appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Friday to discuss their friendly rivalry. Sniped Kim, 29, to Kendra, 24: “Let’s meet up and I’ll poison your coffee and you can give it to Hank!”
The two however made it clear that they were just joking and even planned to do some lingerie shopping together for their men.
The E! reality stars also dished on their game-day outfits. Kendra plans to wear “a jersey made that says ‘Mrs. Baskett’.” Her 2 month old son, Hank Jr. “will be wearing [his father’s] jersey.”
Kim is however moving in a different direction, as she believes wearing a jersey on game day is “superstitious,” so she plans on sporting “Balmain jacket, T-shirt and jeans and some boots…I always wear something in [Saints team colors] black and gold.”
I’m a Titans fan, so it’s in my DNA to root against the Colts no matter what. So the question of the day is Which Team Are You Rooting For? Any Football Fans Out There?
Jon Gosselin has possibly hit a new low in his life regarding his public image and family. RadarOnline is now reporting that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad will be willing to allow TLC to film his children again under one condition — if they drop their lawsuit against him.
Jon is currently being sued by TLC for breaching the contract he signed with them. This all started when TLC decided they no longer wanted Jon on the hit reality show due to his deteriorating public image and publicity stunts. TLC decided they would still pay Jon though he would no longer be on the show. Even more importantly, Jon would be free to do whatever new show or business endeavors he wished.
For some strange reason, Jon decided the above wasn’t good enough and banned TLC from filming his kids just days after TLC announced it wanted to change the name of the show to Kate Plus Eight. Jon lied claimed back then that he had an epiphany that the show was damaging to his children.
TLC had no choice but to stop filming the children. They however in return decided to sue Jon for a breach of contract, and even hired one of the best law-firms in the country. They won a preliminary injunction against Jon last December, prohibiting him from engaging in behavior that violates the non-compete clause in his contract, meaning Jon was no longer allow to do any paid or non paid interviews, as well as sell photos of himself and his children.
His children’s well being be damned, Jon is now ready to make a deal according to Radar. And the deal is simple, he will allow TLC to begin filming his children again as long as they drop the lawsuit against him.
A source however tells RadarOnline, that no matter what TLC decides, Jon would never return to the hit show. “You can be sure that if the kids come back to TLC it will be only with Kate, not with Jon. And there’s no guarantee that will happen either.”
TLC has since moved on and have been working a new show for Kate Gosselin, one that does not involve the children. It is however possible that Kate Plus 8 could return as several specials, rather than a regular series.
As of now, TLC has yet to respond to Jon’s offer, and all the talk about a settlement is coming from Jon only, who is clearly getting the short end of the stick in the litigation. He’s been restricted from making money off his reality TV fame and is no longer receiving a TLC paycheck. His trial is scheduled to begin in the Spring.
There are also reports that Jon was ordered to pay $10,000 a month in child support to ex-wife Kate. This is addition to the $90,000 he allegedly owes his ex girlfriend Hailey Glassman. Jon’s attorney Mark Heller however threatens the public promises RadarOnline: “You haven’t seen the last of Jon Gosselin.”
The most recently eliminated lady from The Bachelor is now speaking out about her time on the show. In a new interview, Corrie Adamson reveals she was not surprised about her elimination and was actually expecting it.
“I knew going into that Rose Ceremony that — when we all lined up and stuff — I knew I was going home,” she said.
Corrie continued, “Because [of] some of my and Jake’s conversation on our [one-on-one] date. We talked about the [overnight] fantasy suite [that would have been coming up] and I wasn’t willing to do that and I know [it] was important for Jake to get that alone time. And because our relationship was underdeveloped compared to the other girls that would put me even farther behind and so I just knew that he knew that I wasn’t going to be where he needed me to be.”
The 23-year-old wardrobe consultant from Kissimmee, FL who shared she was a virgin and is saving herself for marriage on the show, revealed Jake Pavelka said her unwillingness to accept the overnight date with him was a possible “deal breaker.”
“When I told him I wasn’t going to — because that conversation came up after the conversation about me being a virgin — and he said ‘You know, fantasy suites are coming up, is that something you’re going to do?’ and I said, ‘No, it’s not’ and I said, ‘Is that a deal breaker for you?’ and he said, ‘It might be,'” she said.
Corrie however makes it clear Jake wanted the overnight date not to have sex with her. “And he said, ‘Not because I want to have sex with you but because I need that off-camera time to get to know you.”
She also admits not enough strong feelings had developed between she and Jake. “When I left I felt very much like me and Jake had just had one date. Our one-on-one date to me was very much a first date. So my feelings for him were not extremely developed and I was behind the other girls in that,” she said.
When asked if she would possibly consider being the next Bachelorette, Corrie had the following to say – “That would be a really big decision,” she said. “If I didn’t have time to think about it I’d have to say no, there’s just something really special about just normal dating. But you know, it’s always a possibility I guess.”
Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County seems to have set off some fireworks both on and off the show, as cast-member Vicki Gunvalson had some harsh words after seeing the things that were said about here after she abruptly left Lynne’s dinner party.
Vicki, who seems to have developed a close friendship with fellow cast-mate Tamra Barney both on and off the show seemed very hurt and shocked by some of Tamra’s comments in last night’s episode.
Calling Tamra’s comments both rude and disgusting, Vicki had the following to say in her latest Bravo blog -
“When Donn and I were invited to Lynn’s housewarming party, I thought it would be a nice casual Sunday night dinner party and was looking forward to it. I never intended for anything to go down the way it did. I wasn’t nervous about seeing Simon; I was actually hoping we would give each other a hug and put any harsh feelings away, but obviously that didn’t happen. Simon somehow wants to blame “someone” for his marriage problems and the only one he felt he could point his finger at was me. I know Tamra was torn between Simon and myself and that I’m sure was a difficult spot to be in. HOWEVER, once I saw the footage on what went down after Donn and I left was disgusting. I guess it teaches you even as an adult, to be careful when you walk out of a room what people are going to say about you. Never in a million years would I have guessed Tamra to be so rude and disrespectful to me and our friendship. When she says she has my back, I’d hate to see her when she doesn’t have it. Guess her idea and my idea of being friends are “two different ideas” … as Donn would say!
When Tamra tells the group at the table that “I’m lacking something and [I’m] a very jealous person” made me very sad. I think everyone can agree that we ALL are lacking something and no one is perfect so I don’t know what she is referring to. The fact that she said I am a very jealous person is farthest from the truth. I am grateful for my family, for my life, and for my career, and am not jealous of anyone or anything! I wouldn’t want to be in any of those people’s lives and am completely happy with mine. She claims she is my friend? I would NEVER speak about her the way that she did about me. It was really sad to hear that come from her mouth when all I have ever done is support her and be a good friend to her.”
Simon Barney, who has spent the last couple of weeks saying some negative things about his soon to be ex-wife Tamra, has now decided to quit blogging all together, citing negative comments as being one of the main reasons.
His final blog is below -
“This week’s blog will be completely different than my past ones. I wanted to start by thanking everyone for their support and making me feel welcome as a first-time blogger. Unfortunately after much thought, I feel it is time to bring it to a close. I always told myself as soon as it turns negative, I would stop. I would have to say my blog and the comments have both shifted a little on the negative side. So, now is the time for me to focus on my kids and the next chapter of my life, whatever it might be. I also wanted to thank Bravotv.com for graciously allowing me the ability to give my spin on the show events. A final note: please don’t judge only on what you see, or think you see. Realize that we are on a reality show designed to entertain. Be nice to the rest of the cast members; they know not what you see….
So with that, I will bid you a final farewell.”
For some strange reason, something tells me passive aggressive Simon will be back to blogging in no time.
