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.
Jon Gosselin’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, is speaking out on their new relationship. The pair appear to still be going strong a whole week after they were first photographed together.
Photos and stories of Hailey being a coke addict/bar hopping/part-time lesbian be damned. These two are in the it for the long haul. Hailey spoke out to People magazine in a new interview saying she is surprised to be dating Jon, “If you had told me a few months ago, I wouldn’t have believed you.”
Oh there’s more. Hailey says the feelings began to develop while Jon was nursing his broken heart at her parents’ New York City home in May. “He was so strong,” Glassman says. “I admired him.”
She goes on to deny engagement rumors, while claiming her parents “love” Jon.
Hailey also manages to get a shot in at Jon’s ex wife, Kate Gosselin, when asked about what she loves most about the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “I’m a huge believer in not controlling someone,” says Hailey. “I’ll give my opinion but tell him to do what he wants to do. He said, ‘I’m just not used to having an option.’ I told him life is about options.”
The days just aren’t complete without a new story about The Gosselins. The latest today is news that Jon reunited with Kate and the kids this afternoon for the first time since he took new girlfriend Hailey Glassman on a luxury getaway to France.
Yes the above photo was just taken this afternoon at Kate’s their Pennsylvania home. One can only imagine the degree of awkwardness in their conversations.
RadarOnline has also just reported that Kate has left the home, leaving Jon to have his share of time with the kids. According to their sources, Kate does not want Hailey anywhere around her children. Can you blame her?
Radar also reported some interesting things about Jon’s 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey. The first being their exclusive interview with Hailey’s ex lesbian lover, who painted a very bad picture of her. She basically described Hailey as being “heavily-involved in drugs” and only using Jon for fame.
Hailey’s past co-workers were able to paint an even more disturbing picture of her. She is described as being “really sexual and slutty” while being “hammered 90% of the time” when she’s not too busy having raunchy sex in public bathrooms.
Jon can pretty much expect to say goodbye to most of the sympathy the public had for him.
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JON’S DECISION TO DATE HAILEY GLASSMAN?
In probably what is one of their best moves in the past few months, TLC’sJon & Kate Gosselin have now decided they will no longer speak to the media about their family issues.
The couple states the following in a statement posted on TLC’s website – “During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation.”
They continue, “Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible…We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many. Thank you.”
TLC also announced last week that the show would be going on hiatus until Aug. 3 to give the family “some time off to regroup.”
This is definitely a smart choice on both parties. It’s time for them to shut up, and focus on strengthening their family during this divorce.
Admist the not so shocking news on last night’s episode revealing that Jon & Kate Gosselin are getting a divorce, comes news today that the show will be taking a break.
TLC announced today, that production has been halted on their hit show, Jon & Kate Plus 8. The reason being they do not have enough footage to put together new episodes because of the Gosselins’ marital turmoil. The decision is said to be solely that of TLC, and not of Jon & Kate.
It is also stated that next Monday’s episode will feature a clip package with some new footage, but the next all-new episode won’t air until August 3. The family, though divorcing, have no plans to quit the show. As Kate declared through tears on Monday’s episode, “the show must go on!”
