Is Kate Gosselin extending an olive branch? Perhaps she's sick of being on the fringe in the tabloids? Nah, that can't be it. Could it be that all the money she spends on styling, manicures, and tanning don't allow for a big legal battle against her ex-husband Jon and author Robert Hoffman.
As you recall, Kate waged a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Robert who authored Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World as well as the father of her eight children after the self-published book painted the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality star in a not so pretty light. Yeah, it was just the book that did that…
In today's shocking news, former spouses Jon and Kate Gosselin still aren't getting along. The one time laid back member of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 duo is decidedly more low key these days. Thankfully, Jon is no longer dating nannies, abusing Ed Hardy (that we know of), or hanging with Michael Lohan. As for Kate, she's basically the same, but tanner with a much more expensive lifestyle and sense of entitlement. It's a wonder these two didn't work…
While Jon and Kate struggle to get along, their eight children are the ones who suffer. Jon is quick to mention this to Oprah Winfrey. See how casually I mentioned that? Yes, Jon is going to be interviewed by the Big O for her series Where Are They Now?
The suit claims, "Jon violated the federal anti-hacking statue in order to publish salacious, scandalous, and defamatory information about Kate" because "if Hoffman was picking through trash on the street, he did not find this trove of personal information while engaging in his trash-picking endeavors."
Jon maintains his innocence, of course, and wants the case thrown out.
From purchasing a beautiful million dollar home and yachting in the South of France to working as a waiter and living in a modest cabin (without Internet or TV) in the woods… welcome to the real world, Jon Gosselin.
So nice to have you!
That's right! Years after starring in a wildly popular TV show and enduring a nasty divorce, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is now serving food and drinks at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, PA.
You know how you totally forget some people even exist until they thrust themselves back into the news? Yeah, that's how I feel about Jon and Kate Gosselin. The reality stars with their brood of children are now more famous for their acrimonious divorce than their TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8.
While Kate has traded her role as America's Sweetheart (I couldn't even type that with a straight face) for that of couponing queen, I do kind of miss Jon's Ed Harvey antics when he was palling around with Michael Lohan. Thanks to a new lawsuit, we may be seeing more of the dreadful duo!
Rumor has it that the legally necessary edits to Robert Hoffman's tell-all book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, are almost complete. Kate doesn't like this, obviously, because she doesn't want the book to ever see the light of day again.
Now, according to RadarOnline, Kate wants ex-husband Jon Gosselin to go to jail (and lose the right to see their eight kids) for providingRobert Hoffman with the computer hard drive that contains Kate's own detailed accounts of her less-than-stellar parenting habits (to put it kindly).
To add a little humor to the situation, Kate Major, Jon's ex and now fiance to Michael Lohan, wants to testify as a character witness in Kate's favor.
Robert Hoffman's book Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World has been pulled by Amazon. The tell-all book was available for purchase for only two days before two legal teams, Lavely & Singer and Williams & Connolly, each demanded that Amazon pull the book due to infringement rights.
After the Kate Gosselin child abuse allegations took the internet by storm last week, Robert came under fire as well. Many readers question how the reporter just happened to "find" Kate's personal journals and why he wrote a book instead of contacting Child Protection Services.
Robert says he found Kate's computer hard drives in the trash. The former US Weekly reporter says, "I can tell you that all of my information regarding Kate Gosselin used in the book was obtained by me personally through completely legal means."
Furthermore, Robert claims that only about 10% of the information in the book was taken from Kate's hard drive. "There is so much more that hasn't been revealed," Robert says. "I also have photographic evidence to back up my claims in the book."
