Rumors of an additional member-Jon’s former fling Deanna Hummel being featured on the TLC show “Jon & Kate plus 8” has been shot down by a TLC spokesperson.
The New York Daily News reports, “Deanna’s role isn’t expected to be big, but because she’s part of Jon’s life, she’ll be filmed,” an insider told the paper. The rep for the network informed Entertainment Tonight that there were no plans for such arrangements.
According to TLC president, Eileen O’Neill, the network will stop airing the show until Aug. 3 in light of the couple’s split so that viewers can adjust to the new circumstances. “It’s hard to walk away from a big number,” O’Neill said, referring to Monday’s record 10.6 million viewers. “Once we understood that they were going to make an announcement [regarding their split], we discussed various scenarios with them,” she said. “We really collaborated on what would make sense for the family.”
O’Neill doesn’t foresee the show being cancelled or postponed further than August. She is “very confident” in the August return date.
Regarding any changes on the show, TLC believes that the focus will remain on the parent-child relationship.

In a 30 second promo video on TLC, Jon and Kate Gosselin plan to make an announcement on the show that will air next week.
“Recently we’ve made some life-changing decisions,” Kate says in a voice over on a new TLC promo for a one-hour Jon & Kate Plus 8 episode to air Monday. “Decisions that will affect every member of our family…ones that we hope will bring each of us some peace.”
Phrases like “A relationship at a crossroads” and “Where do they go from here?” also flash across the screen during the promo.
Severalmagazines including Us Weekly have chronicled the couple’s collapsing marriage as Jon had an affair with 23-year-old DeannaHummel, and Kate may have had an “inseparable” relationship with her bodyguard, Steve Neild.
Their 10 year wedding anniversary was spent apart.
Kate and Jon need to get their life together and stop the show so they can focus on what’s best for the family. They have 8 kids to raise. What do you all think? Should they stay together for the kids? Should the show be cancelled?
Not certain as to whom Jon & Kate Gosselin might have pissed off at US Weekly, as the magazine continues to rag on them. The latest being the above new photo of Jon Gosselin with his alleged 23 year old girlfriend, Deanna Hummel.
According to US, the above photos were taken on March 28 at the Spring Gruv at The Canyons Ski Resort in Park City, Utah. Jon’s Utah visit was filmed for an episode of their show. The filming was to focus on how he helps handicapped kids (the vacations in Utah are among the freebies he receives from the show).
A witness who spotted Jon and Deanna claimed the two “were close and chatty” as they watched a pond skimming competition together. Deanna’s brother, Jason Hummel, confirmed last month that his sister did indeed have an affair with Jon.
Okay, so we now have some form of photographic “evidence” of this affair. Here’s to hoping we can now move on from this story.
Bringing you your daily dose of Jon and Kate (Are you as tired of hearing about these two as we are?)Well, the couple continues to spend time apart. Jon has been seen with different woman over the last few months but recently with two female companions during the Memorial Day weekend and a recent shopping spree at a New Jersey mall. The reality star says that both female companions are friends of both he and his wife.
“The two women with whom I’ve been photographed are family friends – Lauren Glassman andLauren’s daughter, Hailey,” he tells PEOPLE. “Lauren’s husband, Dr. Larry Glassman, performed Kate’s tummy tuck surgery, and since the surgery we’ve become friendly with the Glassmans.”
Jon and the Glassmans were photographed shopping at the Riverside Square Mall in New Jersey over the weekend, stopping in at Louis Vuitton, Cole Haan and Godiva stores, according to TMZ.com.
While Jon was photographed with his female companions, Kate was on a working vacation in North Carolina with her eight kids, body guards, a nanny and camera crews. Kate showed off her bikini body while on vacation, thanks to a free tummy tuck which is among the many perks of being the star of “Jon & Kate Plus 8”
The 2nd episode of the 5th season of Jon & Kate Plus Eight returns to TLC Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
In the never ending drama for the Jon & Kate Plus 8 family, comes a new report that Jon & Kate Gosselin are being investigated the Pennsylvania Department of Labor for possibly violating child labor laws by having their children on the show.
No we’re not kidding. The the Pennsylvania Department of Labor confirmed yesterday that an investigation is being done to determine if the hit TLC show is violating child labor laws after receiving a complaint against the show. So all it takes is one complaint to waste tax payers money on a ridiculous investigation such as this one?
Troy Thompson of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor says, “We’re not saying that they are not complying with child labor laws. We’re investigating a complaint. We’re not saying that there was or was not a violation, just that we’re conducting an investigation.”
The reality show – for which Jon and Kate earn $50,000-$75,000 an episode – features their eight children, including 8-year-old twins and sextuplets who just turned 5.
TLC has released a statement denying any wrong doing. This whole witch hunt on the couple has now gone a bit too far in my opinion. To say they are violating child labor laws seems to be a very big and rather unfair reach to me.
