Entertainment Tonight is reporting Kate will be returning to The View for another guest hosting gig come Thursday, March 11th. This is nothing new for Kate as she previously guest hosted the show for three days back in September, 2009.
Still in the works is Kate’s new TLC show that will solely feature Kate minus her eight children. Instead, Kate will be featured “trying different jobs and tasks and showing how she performs in different environments.” The new TLC series is set to debut sometime during the spring or early summer.
In addition to Kate, ABC confirms other guest co-hosts will include Meghan McCain, Valerie Bertinelli and Victoria Beckham.
All talks of a truce have now ceased betweenJon Gosselin and former girlfriendHailey Glassman as RadarOnline is reporting the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad is moving forward with pursuing charges against Hailey.
Those charges would be for robbing and ransacking his NYC apartment. Both Jon and his lawyer believe Hailey is the responsible party. Hailey has also accused Jon of physically abusing her by pushing her up against a wall.
It was reported last week that both parties were going to meet and try to resolve their differences. But Jon has now decided he does not want to let Hailey off the hook.
In other news, things continue to get serious between Jon and his new 25 year old girlfriend Morgan Christie. PEOPLE magazine is now reporting that Jon met up with Morgan and her mother over the weekend in Utah.
“Based on the body language, it seemed like Jon and the mother have met before,” said an onlooker. “It was really quiet at their table, but the mom was doing most of the talking throughout the night.”
Kate Gosselin also stepped out this weekend, showing off her highly talked about new hair extensions. The 34 year old mother of eight was spotted in her PA hometown as she ran errands during the weekend.
As we previously reported, Kate’s hair stylist Ted Gibson revealed her hair took a total of 20 hours to create, and would cost close to $7,000 at his salons in New York and Washington.
The pimp known asJon Gosselinis at it again. The father of eight has yet once again gotten himself a new girlfriend. PEOPLE magazine is confirming the unlucky new lady in Jon’s life is 25-year-old Morgan Christie.
Morgan reportedly resides in California though she met Jon back in Utah during thanksgiving. Sources tell People, “She grew up very privileged, tons of money.” Morgan is a former Emory University student and met Jon while skiing in Utah, where her relatives live.
The National Enquirer posted the exclusive photo below of Jon and his new chick -
Sighs, young love. We give it 3 more weeks. In other news, Kate Gosselin continues to make headlines for her new makeover, you know the one that has her looking pretty much the same with the exception of a few hair extensions. Well the hair stylist responsible for her “makeover” is speaking out.
Ted Gibson says Kate’s entire makeover took an estimated 20 hours, and estimates the cost to be around $7,000. Yes you read that right. Apparently Ted used the best quality of human hair for Kate’s extensions, that added in with time spent on coloring and other things added up pretty quickly. It’s safe to guess PEOPLE magazine covered the costs for Kate’s new look.
And finally RadarOnline was able to get their hands of a photo of Jon’s NYC apartment after it was ransacked and robbed. The photo shows a large Japanese chef’s knife speared through a note and stuck into the top of his dresser. The note was apparently signed with Hailey Glassman’s name and Jon’s reps have publicly accused his ex GF of being responsible.
As of now, all parties involved are trying to settle their differences, since Hailey came out accusing Jon of being physically abusive to her.
Kate Gosselin is gracing the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine and she’s showing off her new look!
The mother of eight is moving on and putting her nasty divorce and old hairstyle behind her. “It’s good to have hair again,” she told People of her longer new look, aided by extensions. “I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did. I feel like this is a fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life.”
Kate also opens up about her very public divorce to Jon Gosselin- “I got phone calls from my friends congratulating me,” she told PEOPLE. “But I felt like, ‘You’re congratulating me on a failed marriage?’ I knew what they were getting at, because I am starting over and cutting ties from something that was really dragging me down, but it was a rough day. I wasn’t prepared for the intensity of the emotion involved.”
Kate is now moving on and even open to finding new love.“I’m not going to rule it out,” she said. “But right now it’s not my focus. Being alone at the end of every day, I’m not liking that – it’s been a long time, and I feel that loneliness. But I’m not going to go running in the direction of finding someone.”
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom however makes it clear that her kids remain her number one priority. “I’ve got to get my kids back on track, my career back on track and my family back on track,” she said making it clear that her kids are “really struggling” with their dad’s absence. “They start counseling in the next two weeks,” she said. “I’m definitely seeing signs that it’s a major need at this point.”
Kate also acknowledges that money is an issue for her family. It has been rumored that Jon was ordered to pay $10,000 a month in child support. “I have a lot of debt to crawl out of,” she claimed. “Debt that shouldn’t be there. I have a lot of anger about that. But it’s nothing that good, hard work won’t fix.”
As for what’s next for Kate? “Now I get to start over in a new year, with a new self and new goals,” she said. “Oh yeah – and new hair!”
TELL US – IS KATE’S MAKEOVER A YAH OR NAY??
Update – Another photo of Kate’s new look is below.
Kate Gosselin might be one step closer to having to work a regular 9 – 5, as RadarOnline is reporting she has been axed from a new TV show that she shot a pilot for because the executives thought she was too controversial.
Kate shot the pilot for the show back in September. She was to be one of the several hosts for the Momlogic TV pilot. She joined Food Network star Paula Deen, Lee Woodruff and former Early Show co-host Rene Syler. The show, which has been described as The View for working moms (umm isn’t The View for working moms as well?), is said to be on life support and will likely be canceled all together.
It is however still on schedule to be sold at the convention where TV shows are pitched, but an insider said there is little chance it will make it. A source close to the situation told Radar that the high-level executives believed Kate was too controversial for the show and didn’t think she was ready for a full-time hosting job, even as part of a panel.
This unfortunately does not mark the end of Kate on television. As we reported earlier, TLC is developing a show for her, that should debut sometime in the spring. The concept of the show has yet to be made public, but TLC is reportedly very committed to the new show.
Gag order be damned, Jon Gosselin is refusing to shut up. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad spoke to Hollywoodlife about his recent divorce settlement. Apparently he is worried he won’t get to see his children with the new custody rules in place.
In case you’re wondering, yes this does violate the court injunction issued against him by a judge, preventing him from talking to the media. “I don’t want to lose my children,” Jon told HollywoodLife.com. “Kate is taking the kids somewhere [this weekend]. I never know where she’s taking them, but I think I have an idea.”
The genius known as Jon goes on to acknowledge the fact that he is not allowed to speak out publicly during his phone interview. “TLC has a gag order against me,” says Jon.
Kate Gosselin’s lawyer, Mark Momjian, confirms Kate will get the house in Wernersville, Pa., as well as primary custody of their eight children. Jon gets visitation.
Things keep getting worse for Jon, as he was also ordered to start paying child support as part of the divorce settlement. “Yes, part of the arbitration award consisted of a decision on property division and child support,” Momjian told RadarOnline. “And the amount of the child support goes from him to her and not the other way around.”
TMZ confirms this as well saying Jon will be making “huge” child support payments. The amount has yet to be disclosed but TMZ confirms he will paying 5 figures a month. According to TMZ, Jon is in immediate financial trouble and has no way of making the child support payments, as TLC has shut down his ability to take outside jobs.
Jon was also ordered to return every penny of the $235,000 he withdrew from his joint account with Kate. The money was taken directly out of his portion of the divorce settlement. Kate on the other hand did not have to pay back any of the money she withdrew despite Jon’s claims. An arbitrator determined every penny she withdrew was for the benefit of the kids.
TMZ is reporting thatJon and Kate Gosselin are officially divorced as of today. A Pennsylvania Judge has signed the final papers, making Jon and Kate officially single, not that being married has stopped Jon from acting like a single man for the past couple of months.
The details of who got what are sealed, but Kate’s lawyer confirmed to TMZ that Kate will continue to reside at the family’s PA home with the eight children. As for Kate, she says, “I am very relieved that our divorce has been finalized, and I look forward to the New Year, focusing on our children.” She called the divorce “challenging,” and says she will now focus on “restructuring our lives.”
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad was also ordered not to bring any firearms onto their property. The Montgomery County, PA judge gave the order as Jon showed up in court to face off against his former lawyer who is now suing him for non-payment. The court order came about as photos of Jon firing a hand gun at their PA property surfaced. As we reported earlier, a decision was rendered regarding how Jon & Kate should divide their money and other property. Kate was said to be thrilled with the results while Jon reacted by shooting a few rounds from his gun near the fence of the family’s PA home.
In other news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Jon owes his former girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, $90,000. Yes you read that right. According to the Enquirer, Jon was in dire need of cash after a judge demanded he return the $180,000 he withdrew from his joint account with Kate – or face contempt charges.
Apparently Jon had spent a most of the $180,000 and a large portion of the repayment came from Hailey’s life savings . Jon begged Hailey for the loan, saying that he didn’t want his kids to see him in jail. “Prior to the court order, Hailey heard the rumors that Jon took money out of the account,” said a close pal. “But Jon told her that it was all lies.”
But once the judge made his ruling on Oct. 13th, Jon “came crying to Hailey, admitting that he did take money – but he said he believed he was entitled to it – as his paycheck,” said the pal. Jon insisted he no longer had the cash, saying he had used it to pay off the women who claimed to have had affairs with him because he was afraid the accusations would hurt him in his divorce battle.
Hailey was reluctant to lend Jon the $90,000 – money she’d saved up since childhood from relatives, past jobs and also from her Bat Mitzvah. She eventually relented and lent him the money. “Jon promised to pay her back in full by January, but now he’s pleading for more time,” continued the pal.
The pal reveals Hailey no longer trusts Jon and plans to take action against him if he doesn’t pay her back by January. This story seems to be a new low, even for Jon Gosselin standards.
The end is finally near for the marriage of Kate & Jon Gosselin, as an arbitrator dealing with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 couple has rendered a decision regarding how Jon, 32, and Kate, 34, should divide their money and other property.
Though the recommendation and its details will remain confidential, a source reveals to RadarOnline that Kate is “thrilled” with the settlement. The source continues, “She couldn’t be happier.” It seems Jon wasn’t too happy with the decision, as he reacted by taking to the fence near the family’s home in Pennsylvania to shoot a few rounds from his gun.
The decision is however binding and will be transmitted to divorce court. Kate’s lawyer, Mark Momjian, believes the divorce finalization will happen sometime between now and the end of the year.
In other news, Jon’s problems continue to mount as he is scheduled to appear in court today to defend himself against a former attorney who is suing him for non-payment. According to Radar, Jon has already arrived for his morning court appearance.
