The estranged couple will discuss the recent events since their split earlier this year and how they went from reality TV family to being in the tabloids daily. In addition, they plan to address their future projects and plans for their children.
Besides showing the meeting between Jon and Kate, the last episode will also feature Kate’s trip with the kids to a dairy farm and firehouse. The show which started on TLC in 2004 will air its final episode November 23.
This is a rather interesting update considering TLC is currently suing Jon, and vice versa.
Tell Us: Do you plan to watch the last episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8?
More details are being revealed about the recent $5 million lawsuitJon Gosselin filed against the TLC network.
According to RadarOnline, Jon claims the reason he refuses to go out and get a regular job is simply because he is too famous. Yes you read that right. In an affidavit filed as part of the lawsuit, Jon states: “Now, I find myself unemployed and without the ability to secure non-entertainment related engagements because the enormous Media interest, cameras, reporters and public interest makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that has impeded by life.”
Other claims made by Jon in the lawsuit include his claims that TLC staged some of the scenes for Jon & Kate Plus 8. Staged scenes for a reality show? Shocking! Jon also claims TLC likes Kate more then they like him. He states the network enforced the contract, “strictly and harshly towards me, while leniently, if at all, applying them towards my wife.”
In other news, the National Enquirer also published a story claiming Jon has a sex tape floating around. Stephanie Santoro, Jon’s former babysitter with whom he slept with, said the following — “Tom told me that Jon was secretly videotaped having sex with a woman in Los Angeles in October, and he’s seen the tape!” The Tom she is referring to is Thomas Meinelt, Jon’s former bodyguard.
Jon’s reps have however denied the story about the sex tape.
In a new interview with PopEater, theJon & Kate Plus 8 dad says that everything will remain the same for his eight children despite his problems with Kate, so that “they have the sense of security with everything that’s going on.”
Jon, 32, says he doesn’t expect any showdowns with Kate, 34, adding that they both plan to stick to tradition. The kids “do the stockings early Christmas morning,” he says. “Kate makes sticky buns. We keep it all the same. Nothing has changed. That way they have the sense of security with everything that’s going on.”
He adds, “This year, there’s a lot of paparazzi, so who knows? Every year it’s different.”
In other news, Jon filmed a ‘funny’ video for the website – funnyordie.com. Jon spoofs himself by poking fun at his Ed Hardy, club-going ways, vowing to go back to his “righteous” roots. “For the past few months, I’ve been looking back and thinking, ‘Man, this is not me…'” Jon says in the video. “I just want to go back to the normal, simple life like I used to have.”
In what is a new low even for Jon Gosselin’s standards, comes news that he is set to appear on a panel with fellow attention whore famous for nothing star, Levi Johnston.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8dad, and Levi, 19, are set to appear together on a panel for the syndicated entertainment show The Insider. The above photo was taken as the two “accidentally” bumped into each other in NYC’s Times Square Sunday night.
Kate Gosselinhas slammed all of Jon’s recent antics, recently saying, “Our goals just very much changed. Our visions changed. My goals didn’t change as a mom. I just think somewhere along the line, his goals changed. They felt possibly detrimental to me, and possibly detrimental to me and the kids.”
For those not familiar with Levi, he is the father of Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s grandchild. Sarah Palin has also slammed Levi recently, saying Levi has a “desperate need for attention” due to his recent decision to pose in Playgirl (his shoot takes place next week).
UsWeekly is also reporting that Levi will be filing for joint custody of his 10-month-old son with former fiancee Brisol Palin. Levi has claimed in the past that the Palin family has prevented him from being alone with son Tripp. “Not working. I’m done,” he tells The Insider. “It’s going to have to go to court. They just finally pushed me over the edge.”
Sorry folks, but it’s a slow news day. It’s quite sad though that Jon has turned himself into a laughing stock. He seems to keep hitting new lows each day.
The drama in Jon Gosselin’s life doesn’t seem to be coming to an end any time soon, instead it worsens by the day. Several of Jon’s close associates including Hailey Glassman may be used as witnesses against Jon in TLC’s lawsuit against him, reports RadarOnline. Since these people will be under oath, there is no telling the type of information that will be revealed against Jon.
TLC alleges that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad breached his exclusive contract with them by giving paid interviews to other networks and selling photos of himself to tabloids. Their lawyers have gotten off to a fast start in determining Jon’s other sources of income. The law firm has a reputation for being fierce and has been very busy since TLC filed the suit in October.
According toRadarOnline, on November 4 the court granted several motions filed by the law firm, allowing them to depose Hailey, Jon’s bodyguard Thomas Meinelt, Michael Heller, Mark Heller, Michael Lohan and Matthew Kirschner.
Since TLC’s attorneys have been granted the right to depose the Hellers (Jon’s previous lawyers), they most likely will not be allowed to represent Jon in the case, as they are now witnesses. All parties involved will be asked to divulge information that could possibly hurt Jon in the suit. The Hellers will certainly be asked about every non-TLC pay that Jon has received and Hailey will also be forced to reveal what she knows.
Radar is also reporting that a date has been set for TLC’s case against Jon. He is required to appear December 14 in a Maryland courtroom when a judge will hear TLC’s motion for a preliminary injunction. It is likely he will be questioned under oath about his income on this date.
In other news, Jon has now decided to take on yoga to help reduce the self induced stress in his life. And paparazzi just happened to snap a photo of him practicing his yoga. Wondering how much he got paid to sell this photo of himself. The photo is below —
Jon Gosselin and his on/off/pseudo girlfriend Hailey Glassman, continue their attention whoring ways in their latest interview with Entertainment Tonight.
We reported yesterday that Jon stormed off the set of the interview during an argument between he and Hailey, well today comes news that the two also clashed over thanksgiving dinner during the interview. Hailey also reveals the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad will be spending Thanksgiving with she and her family, and not with his 8 kids.
“My family and I would never let him eat Thanksgiving dinner alone in an apartment,” says Hailey, even though it seems as though the two are breaking up on camera. “He’s coming to our house for Thanksgiving. I don’t care.” Jon adds, “I still planned on going to her house on Thanksgiving; that was on my schedule,” raising the eyebrows of Hailey.
Hailey isn’t thrilled with his answer. “On your schedule? What do you mean, ‘On my schedule?'” she asks. “Let’s see, Kate has the kids, and she’s having a nice huge meal with Steve and his family. Uh, let’s see, should I go to Hailey’s or should I sit in my apartment all alone?”
“Sorry, I used the wrong term,” says Jon. “I plan on going — I made a promise to her family I would go to her house.”
“Made a promise? You’re not doing my family any favors!” replies Hailey. “We know what the right thing to do is. We know what we both need,” she continues. “He needs to do his thing and I need to do my thing. We both know this.”
Pretty certain I just lost a few brain cells reading the above conversation between these two. It’s safe to say these two are being paid a nice amount to air out their dirty laundry.
TLC aired a new one hour special with Kate Gosselin Monday night, during which she revealed more details about her life and family.
When it came to estranged husband Jon Gosselin, Kate revealed, “A part of me always will [love Jon],” she says. “It’s hard to to be married to somebody for 10 years and try to say I, ‘No, I don’t love them anymore.’ It doesn’t work really well. I love the memories that we have together.” Kate reveals she has no alternative but to keep pursuing what has become the primary source of income for herself and her eight children. “At this point, I can’t go back,” she says.
As for the reason she chooses to keep the cameras involved in her kids’ lives, “We can’t turn life off,” she says. “You’re viewing our lives; yes, you can turn it off. I can’t turn life off. In the last nine, 10 months, it’s gotten real crazy, and I can’t seem to get away from it. I just want peace for my kids.”
Kate is also hoping she can continue filming her own reality show, Kate Plus Eight, along with her eight children. She adds: “I signed up for a reality show, I didn’t sign up to be a tabloid staple. If I said I was done and it was enough, it would just be five more covers of why it is that I’m done, and so I would be living that for a period of time essentially with no income, with no job.”
Kate also reveals she has little support from her friends and family, as most of them have been either driven away or corrupted by the media’s fascination with the family’s self-destruction. Kate’s own brother, Kevin Krieder, has sold her out on multiple occasions by giving paid interviews to the press. Back in May, Kevin toldRadarOnline that Kate shows more interest in her fame as a TV personality, speaker and author than she does as a mother, her brother and sister-in-law.
Just a couple of days ago, we reported that Jon Gosselinand Hailey Glassman had broken up. It now seems the father of eight is trying to make amends with his ex-girlfriend, while also repairing his strained relationship with Kate.
Jon talked to a small crowd Sunday night in New York at an event sponsored by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s organization, This World. During the public dialogue with the celebrity Rabbi, the reality star, 32, said, “I think I’m just misunderstood. I’m not a fame seeker. Everyday I look in the mirror and I wonder [why I’m famous]. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m not a Nobel Peace Prizewinner. I just had eight kids and I had a show on TLC.”
Jon once again said he plans to ask estranged wife, Kate Gosselin, to forgive him. “I want to apologize to Kate in private,” he said. “I’ll apologize to her for openly having relationships in the public eye. That was a huge mistake, because if she would’ve done that to me, I would have been extremely pissed off. Not because our relationship is over, it’s almost like a stab in the back. And now that I think about it, it was a very wrong thing to do. I definitely regret it.”
When it came to Hailey, Jon said he was taking the advise of the Rabbi, who doesn’t think neither he nor Kate should be dating until their divorce is final. He however hopes to reconcile with Hailey in the future. “We decided not to take a break, just slow things down, until I get through my divorce and I know everything is settled and okay. I don’t want another failure in my relationships. I don’t want to make the same mistakes I made with Kate, with Hailey. I would just be repeating the pattern over again,” he said.
