Kate Gosselin is speaking out on the latest actions of her estranged husband, Jon Gosselin. Kate slams Jon in a new statement, saying her priorities lie with her children while Jon is more concerned about himself.

Kate reveals that Jon had never voiced any complaints to her about his concern for their children’s welfare. She goes on to say Jon was still taping with the kids just 6 days ago, before TLC decided to change the name of their hit show to Kate Plus 8.

TLC has suspended production of the show due to Jon’s actions and threats.

Her full statement is below –

“I’m saddened and confused by Jon’s public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids. I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have.

Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon’s priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well being.”

The Bachelor fans no longer have to wait for ABC’s official announcement on October 13th as multiple sources are now confirming Jake Pavelka to be the next Bachelor!

Brittany Gammell, a Tenessee native — who says she’s been cast to be on the upcoming season of The Bachelor tells Musiccitytv.com that indeed, Jake the Pilot is the new Bachelor.

“He’s pretty cute. I’ve seen he was on The Bachelorette. I’m not worried about that part,” said the 25-year-old Brittany, who adds that the taping of the show will begin Oct. 12 in L.A.

RealitySteve also believes Jake’s the new Bachelor, saying Kiptyn Locke was not a contender due to his non interest, leaving the final choice between Jake and Reid Rosenthal. He reveals that all signs point to Jake being the chosen one.

It’s a bit surprising to see Jake chosen as the new Bachelor, as I thought Reid was the favorite to win. ABC chose not to comment on this report, but one can’t help but wonder whether or not there will be any penalties levied against Brittany for revealing this information, if she is indeed a contestant. What she did is a huge no no, and she basically ruined ABC’s big surprise reveal on Dancing With The Stars’ Oct. 13th episode.
