This is the estranged couple’s first thanksgiving apart since filing for a divorce. Since Kate is estranged from her brother Kevin Kreider who reconciled with Jon last month, who better to spend Thanksgiving with than the Neilds. Kate and her eight kids spent Thanksgiving at their Wernersville, PA home with her bodyguard’s family –SteveNeild, his wife Ginaand and their kids.
Kate was rumored to have had an affair with her bodyguard earlier this year, which she has denied. According to Kate, the Neild family has been very supportive through her divorce. “They’re my best friends,” Kate said.
Jon on the other hand tweeted he was going to be at his “grandma’s” to celebrate Thanksgiving but Hailey Glassmansaid otherwise via her twitter. Hailey accused Jon of lying, reports Radaronline.
“LOL-U are in Utah snowboarding w/”friends”-lol-ur redic,” Hailey shot back at Jon.
Not exactly sure what’s going with these douche bags people. According to Jon, he thinks they are on break, or is the relatioship really over? And perhaps Jon didn’t get the memo.
The final episode of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8will air tonight. During the final episode, fans can expect to see the estranged parents of eight go on outings with the kids separately. Jon Gosselintakes the kids to a fire station near the family home in Wernersville, Pa., while Kate Gosselin takes them to a local dairy farm.
Jon and Kate both reflect separately on the events of the past few months and what the future holds for them. The last few months have been a roller coaster ride for the separated couple. A couple months ago, TLC announced that the show will be renamed Kate Plus 8. This never happened as Jon refused to let his kids appear on the show saying it was detrimental to the kids.
“Kate Plus 8 is not in production,” TLC spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said Thursday. “We are focusing on the launch of Kate’s new series in early spring.” No other details were available.
In other news, RadarOnline is reporting that Jon & Kate’s divorce should be finalized before the year is over. The main issue holding up the divorce was the division of the couple’s assets. A divorce arbitrator will divide their assets by December 21.
The couple met face to face on Saturday for a divorce arbitration meeting, during which Jon decided to bring flowers for Kate. Jon, the classy guy that he is, made certain to tell the press he brought the flowers for Kate as a peace offering. Kate however did not accept the roses and a source familiar with the situation told Radar, “She was disgusted by Jon’s actions. She sees right through him.” Can’t say we blame her.
Tell Us: Will Jon & Kate finally go away now that the show ends?
Jon and Kate Gosselin will come face-to-face under the supervision of a court-appointed arbitrator, reports RaderOnline. The purpose of the meeting is to resolve the details of their highly publicized soap opera divorce.
TLC’s lawsuit against Jon is still in the works and they are being represented by one of the top legal firms in the country, William & Connolly. If Jon is unlucky and losses the battle against TLC, he will face large legal bills and may have to pay back a huge sum of money to the network. Sources say Jon is hoping that Kate will convince TLC not to proceed with the suit against him since it will take money away from her and the kids.
In addition, TLC wants to prevent Jon from getting paid for interviews and appearances so they are moving ahead with an attempt at a preliminary injunction against Jon. In the mean time, it seems Jon may have gotten smarter as he trying a different approach in dealing with the mother of his children. According to a source, instead of being inconsiderate to Kate, he’s now ready to try a more peace-making approach.
Mark Heller, Kate Major
In other news, Jon’s lawyer, Mark Heller considers Kate Major’spossible lawsuit against Jon to be a joke. We reported days ago that Jon signed a handwritten contract promising to hire Kate as his personal assistant. “Kate knows Jon Gosselin is like Obama’s stimulus package,” Heller told RadarOnline on Thursday. “Every time she needs money, she cashes in on the few days she knew Jon Gosselin.”
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 —
