Since the announcement of Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce proceedings on their reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8, a lot has happened. Besides being on the cover of every tabloid magazine, the couple has moved in opposite directions. Their show, which was placed on hiatus, is set to return on Aug 3rd.
With the return of the show, viewers can expect to see Jon & Kate taking on new responsibilities.
“You’ll see Jon struggle in the kitchen trying to make pizza for his kids,” TLC General Manager and President Eileen O’Neill said at the Television Critics the panel in Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday. “You’ll see what it’s like when Kate has to put a tent up for the first time for her kids, who love to camp in their backyard. And she gets a little advice from her daughter who doesn’t think she does it quite as well as dad.”
Viewers will see Jon and Kate date, O’Neill said.
“The show comes back on Monday and most new episodes remain a work in progress,” she went on. “But I will tell you: the iconic couch is gone. Jon and Kate will now have separate chairs for their interview.
This will be Kate’s residence as she and Jon will be sharing their parenting duties, and custody of the kids at their Pennsylvania home. When one parent stays at the Pennsylvania house with the kids, the other will take off to their individual apartments. Jon is also renting a condo in New York.
Another interesting tidbit, Kate’s new condo will be located just a block away from bodyguard, Steve Neild‘s office in Rockville. For those not familiar with this story, Kate was rumored to be having an affair with Steve not too long ago.

UPDATE – According to RaderOnline, Kate has had a change of heart, and will no longer be moving to Maryland.
We reported 2 days ago that Kate Gosselin had finally taken off her weding ring, since filing for divorce from Jon over a month ago. Well evidently, things have since changed. Kate has apparently decided she needs some more smypathy from the general public, so the ring is back on.
UsWeeklyreports the Jon & Kate Plus 8 momwore her wedding ring again this Saturday while playing with her eight kids at her family’s $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa.
Not sure what Kate’s trying to sell, but I’m not buying. This seems like a transparent and pathetic attempt at garnering public sympathy. No woman with self respect would continue to wear their wedding ring in public after her husband’s whorish ways have been well documented and photographed. So please Kate, take off your wedding ring and get real.
After being photographed with 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and having tabloid reporter, Kate Major, publicly announce their new “relationship,” while quitting her job last week, Jon Gosselin is now publicly breaking his silence.
“At this point … I’m single – per se,” he told PEOPLE this Saturday. “I’m just a regular guy who just wants to have friendship and good times. And I like meeting people.” Translation – I am single and ready to screw anything moving.
It seems Jon and Girlfriend #1, Hailey, have decided to put the breaks on their new romance. Jon says, “She doesn’t like this [craziness]. She loves me for who I am and not for what I do. We are going to chill out for a while and see where it takes us. I’m not looking for anyone.”
And what about Girlfriend #2, Kate? “We are just friends” says Jon.
Jon however wants us to know he has his priorities in order saying, “I’m just trying to concentrate on my family first, second my career. That’s what I have to do.” And will the kids be meeting any of his multiple girlfriends? “I don’t want to introduce anyone to my kids,” he says. “We just have to play it by ear. I don’t know what it’s like to be divorced.”
So you mean to tell me the big idiot Kate Major quit her job and all but ruined her career for nothing? Fortunately for Kate, she can always take solace in the good news that she should have zero problem winning the biggest dumbass of the year award. Her only other major competition is Hailey.
Reality seems to have finally set in for Kate Gosselin, who eventually took off her wedding band as news about her estranged husband gallivanting with other women can be seen all over the tabloids. Unlike Jon, Kate has taken a more subtle step toward a new life. For the first time, the reality star was photographed without her ring during a coffee run near her Pennsylvania home.
Things seem to be getting very serious between Jon Gosselin and his new reporter girlfriend of 5 days. UsWeekly is now reporting that Kate Major has quit her job as a Star magazine reporter due to a “conflict of interest between her reporting duties for the magazine and her relationship with Jon Gosselin.”
Jill Zarin is also continuing her self appointed duty of being the unofficial spokesperson for the couple saying, “I think it’s authentic… I think it’s fast. I think it happened very quickly.”
Jon has yet to publicly comment on this new relationship.
Meanwhile Jon’s other girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, spoketo People this morning saying she had no idea Jon was seeing another woman. “That’s news to me” says Hailey. She then got teary eye according to People and said, “I still love Jon and Jon loves me.”
I’m literally at a lost for words. Are we being punked?
The latest in Jon’s Gosselin’s mid life crisis is news that he is now dating Star Magazine reporter – Kate Major. Seriously, we couldn’t make these stories up even if we had the best soap writers on staff.
“I didn’t mean it to happen, it just did,” Kate, 26, said Tuesday. “I went to do a story on Jon and ended up falling for him.” Kate was first photographed with Jon this Saturday at NYC restaurant, where according to an onlooker, she was described as ” flirting shamelessly with Jon.”
The “new couple” was also seen dining last night in the Hamptons with Michael Lohan (Lindsay Lohan’s father) and Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, whom Jon reportedly asked “for media advice.”
Jill also confirms to Peoplethat Jon and Kate are now dating saying, “He didn’t seem smitten. They weren’t all over each other. But they’re definitely dating. It came up in conversation. She had her hands on him. But she’s young. This is a girl who is going to want to have babies. Does he really want to go out with another young girl and have kids?”
