Get ready to see a whole lot more of Kate Gosselin! TLC has announced today that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom will not only be starring in one, but rather two reality shows this year.

Kate, who is currently tanking on Dancing With The Stars, will headline her own show, Twist of Kate, on TLC.

According to the network, Twist of Kate, set to debut this summer, will be a 12-episode series that will feature Kate responding to fan letters from those who are inspired by her story as a way to profile the personal challenges her fans face. Kate will then travel the country to meet her fans’ families and to try their jobs.

“I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate, 35, told USA Today about her new show. “I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don’t consider myself an expert on anything.”

On to reality show number two, thanks to the settlement TLC was able to reach with Jon Gosselin earlier this year, Kate Plus 8 will also be making it’s debut this year. If you recall, Jon & Kate Plus 8 was canceled last year after Jon declared he had an epiphany and no longer wanted his kids to be filmed anymore.

The Kate Plus 8 series will be in the form of specials focusing on her new life as a single mom to her eight children.

Jon has also made headlines as he filed a motion this week in an attempt to gain primary custody of his eight children. His lawyer revealed earlier this week that he is having to pay Kate $22,000 a month in child support. He is accusing Kate of being an absentee mother due to her DWTS gig. There are also rumblings that Jon is going broke, which might explain a motive for taking Kate to court.

TLC and Jon Gosselin have finally come to terms in their lawsuits against each other.

TLC released a statement today confirming it has reached a settled with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad. “TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation. All terms of the settlement are confidential. The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC,” TLC said in a statement released Wednesday.

This all started when Jon decided to ban TLC from filming his eight children last year citing an epiphany that she show was hurting them. Coincidentally this epiphany just happened to occur days after TLC announced it would no longer have Jon on the hit show, thus changing the name of the show to Kate Plus 8.

TLC alleged Jon had breached his contract and sued him. Jon in return filed a countersuit against TLC for millions. TLC won the first round as a Judge banned Jon from doing any interviews or paid appearances last December. We reported weeks ago that Jon was willing to allow TLC to film his kids again if they would drop their suit against him.

TLC’s Wednesday statement adds that “The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC.”

Jon’s ex-wife, Kate Gosselin’s untitled show is still set to debut sometime later this year on TLC. The program will not focus on the couple’s eight kids. No word yet on whether TLC will now continue with Kate Plus 8.

Jon’s attorney, Mark Heller, released the following statement -

“Jon has expressed his desire to close the litigation chapter of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and although all terms are confidential, he is hopeful that TLC will move forward with the best interests of the Gosselin family. Sometimes litigants that kiss and make up find their relationship is better the second time around. As Jon’s attorney I truly hope that this new adventure for TLC and the Gosselins is a much more joyful journey.”

According to court documents, several of TLC’s advertisers complained to the network about Jon Gosselin’s “erratic, widely publicized behavior,” reports RadarOnline.

These complaints coupled with Jon’s breach of his contract with TLC is what led to the network changing the show’s name from Jon & Kate Plus 8 to Kate Plus 8.

RadarOnline obtained information from the Montgomery County, MD which reveals TLC’s lawsuit against Jon. The court paper reveals many of the terms of Jon’s contract with the network, and details showing numerous breaches by Jon. And though Jon claims that he didn’t have adequate representation, the court reports clearly states that Jon signed the contract in June, 2008 “after extensive negotiations, during which the Gosselins were represented both by an attorney and their manager.”

Radar is also confirming that Michael Lohan has been subpoenaed and will testify against Jon. “He did deals with me,” Lohan told RadarOnline in an exclusive interview. “I was working on a deal with him for a Nutrisystem endorsement and a book deal. He got a paid a lot of money for different promotions, clubs, magazines, and by a TV network.”

What’s sad about this story is that it seems TLC was willing to look the other way regarding Jon’s deals with other companies, but that wasn’t good enough for Jon. It wasn’t until he decided to ban the network from filming his children, that TLC then decided to take action against him, hiring one of the best law firms in the country. It’s safe to say Jon has screwed himself with this situation.

This may come as relief to some viewers who seem to have had enough of the Gosselin drama. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality show will officially end in November, reports RadarOnline.

Since Jon and Kate Gosselin’s divorce has turned into a soap opera and they both seem to love the spotlight, we can bet you haven’t seen the end of them. Although TLC hasn’t made any official announcements, RadarOnline was able to confirm the show’s termination next month.

Jon has denied the network the rights to film the children and TLC will not challenge that. As of now, the newly titled show — Kate Plus 8 is also done for, that is unless Jon changes his mind.

“TLC has no plans to film unless the situation is resolved,” said the source.

There’s something sentimental about seeing the old picture above of the Gosselin family. Fame is an awful drug. Perhaps getting off national television will be best for the family.

Another day, another chapter. Kate Gosselin has filed paperwork asking for child support and temporary spousal support in response to Jon Gosselin taking $230,000 from the couple’s joint bank account, says Mark Momjian, one of her divorce attorneys.

Sources reveal that the petition was filed in court sometime last week — around the same time Jon, 32, tried to halt production on their newly titled TLC show, Kate Plus 8, claiming the show is hurting his kids.

“She needs relief in light of the draining of substantial marital assets in violation of the arbitrator’s decision that the money should be used only for specific purposes,” says Momjian, adding that the money issues between the Gosselins are being hammered out by a court-appointed arbitrator per an agreement on both sides. An arbitrator’s conference is scheduled for Tuesday, according to Momjian.

Jon’s divorce attorney, Mark Heller, has yet to comment on Kate’s request.

Jon Gosselin responds to Kate Gosselin’s accusation that he took $230,000 from the couple’s joint account, leaving only $1,000 for the family.

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad calls Kate’s accusation “A total fabrication.” Jon, 32, told The Insider Monday. “I withdrew $22,000 last Thursday. I have the paper trail to prove it.”

“I’ve never taken any money out because over 10 years, Kate handled all the banking,” he said. “Over the past four years of doing the show, we accrued $2,250,000. She says in the past week I took $230,000. I have withdrawn roughly $177,000 over the course of a year, which is less than 10 percent of what we made. That’s like my paycheck.”

In addition, Jon accuses Kate of hiding money and lying just to make him look bad. He insists that Kate should have no problems paying the bills. He also reveals that Kate made millions from her best seller book.

Kate appeared on the Today show yesterday morning, saying she didn’t have enough money to pay the bills. A few hours later, she called into the The View and said she’d take a job at McDonald’s in order to provide for her kids if it ever got to that point.

Despite appearing on National television to talk about their monetary issues, Jon insists, “I didn’t want these things to come public. I didn’t want this to be embarrassing for her.”

The battle between the Gosselins continues. In response to the recent news of Jon Gosselin ending Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin’s lawyer says her estranged husband Jon won’t have much luck terminating the show’s production.

“These parties entered into an agreement once the divorce action was filed that allowed each parent – who had physical custody of the children – to make the filming decisions when the children were with them,” Kate’s lawyer Mark Momjian said on the Today show Friday.

“When the children are with Kate, Jon agreed that Kate would make the filming decisions involving the kids,” he added.

Jon appeared on Larry King Live Thursday stating that an “epiphany” ” led him to want to end the show. Mark slams Jon because a week ago, Jon was involved in the shooting of the show. Also, he says Jon could have announced he didn’t want his kids to be on the show “a year ago, but he didn’t.”

“His active participation and encouragement of the show involved all the children and a decision by both parents to include the children and continue production,” he said.

Jon’s lawyer, Mark Heller told Larry King during the interview that the show will be halted and he is certain that no judge would ever “subject the children to the show if the father believes it’s detrimental.”

But Kate’s lawyer says that the eight children — 5-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Leah, Alexis, Joel, Aaden and Collin and 8-year-old twins, Cara and Mady — “are loved by both of their parents. Jon admits that his wife is a wonderful parent, they live in their family home. Kate is their primary caretaker. They’ve reached agreements about custody.”

Kate “is going to honor her contract,” Mark said. “She’d like to continue with the show. She loves doing the show.”
