'Jon & Kate Plus 8' Halts Production


Following Jon and Kate Gosselin‘s big divorce announcement, Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be going on production hiatus.

The LA Times reports that Monday will be a clip package with some new footage. The next all-new episode would be on Aug. 3. The decision for a hiatus reportedly came from the network, not the family.

Kate tearfully declared on Monday’s show, “The show must go on!”

    There is no way I’m ever supporting this train wreck of show again. They really blew it this time. I am no longer a fan of this show ever again. It’s just amazing what the damage they are doing to their kids.

    Frankly, they should have halted production before when all the cracks of their marriage became available for public scrutiny four or five months ago. They should have worked on their marriage more instead of falling prey to gossip and paparazzi. It’s just sad to watch the show now- yes Kate was always hard on Jon but you could see in the earlier seasons that they were parents together and that they loved each other. It’s painful knowing that those kids can now have a permanent reminder of their parent’s divorce in box DVD set form

    This is so backwards. You know that it has gotten incredibly, horribly, terribly bad when TLC is the one that has to stop the show. I mean, it’s so sad when the network that is making millions off of this family is the ones that have to pull the plugs. This really says something about the sickening greed in Kate Gosselin.

    That’s sad (the divorce). I think they should take time off sort out family matter.

    I am disappointed that they so hastily jumped into a divorce without counseling or an extended separation. I would love to know the facts behind kate’s statement that after jon’s actions, behaviour last weekend she felt it best for the kids and herself to immediately file for divorce.

    the show in my opinion is the reason their marriage is ruined, how can u possibly have a good relationship when not only are you taking care of 8 kids, but theres cameras filimg your life almost 24/7. to me they should stop the show and go to therapy

    they really need this hiatus…they need to figure out everything and the show is just intefering with all of this.

    Having that many kids at once could easily ruin a marriage, but it also doesn’t help that Kate is so verbally abusive of Jon.

    They need more than a break, they need to be gone. The kids are cute as can be , but this REAL drama isn’t helping them. They are on the hook (signed contract) for this year, but they should just fade away after they finish their legal obligations.

    Kate is playing her usual game of ‘blame Jon for everything’. I’m sure it pinches that Jon won’t talk to her; she can’t VENT if he won’t talk to her. I guess she’s about to blow up soon. But she is taking it out on him in what she says. She always make it sound like her concern for the kids is more than his. When she made the announcement about filing for divorce she said it was because of Jon’s actions of the past weekend that she is having to do this to protect herself and her children. What the h*ell was THAT. She talks like he is physically abusing her and the kids. She also made come comment about if she has to do this ALONE she will. Rejection is a b*itch Kate; he wants the kids, it’s just YOU he doesn’t want. She’s a seething pot of rage.

    Jon isn’t without blame. Whatever his marriage has become, he has LET it become. The other part of the equation is that these two never had TIME to be a couple. They immediately started trying to have kids after they married. So it’s no surprise that their marriage didn’t survive, even given the divorce rate of couples who are parents of multiples. Kate for her part, may be the planner and take charge person, but she does things with little concern for other people’s feelings. I’m sure she’s very unhappy that she won’t have Jon as a constant punching bag. Life goes on. For the kids sake I hope they can maintain some civility.

    What are you saying? Do you not speak or write English?

    Kate got fired!!! OMG will she be able to feed her kids and pay for her new SUV? Hopefully she’s already paid off her boob job and has put enough money aside to make sure she can shop/pay for her boyfriend/bodyguard, shop, go tanning, shop,write books, shop. I bet when TLC found out she filled for divorce they decided to pull the plug. Jon better get himself a good lawyer. You think shes mean and hateful when he gave into her all these years, think what she’ll be like know that she’s mad.

    Seriously, they should have done this earlier to stop the show. Jon and Kate need their privacy and I think all this publicity is just making the situation worse. The finale of the recent season, you can just see how Jon didn’t want to do this anymore. Then there is Kate who just wants to keep the show going, I’m just like, “WOMAN! Do you know what’s happening to you and the man you loved? Does this money and publicity matter more than the children God has blessed you with?” I wish that they wouldn’t divorce :( What about the children? I hope the children will be okay in the future.

    They need to get away from the cameras and spotlight and get their adult lives down to their children’s level. The parents need to have alone time with the children away from the damn cameras and papps! They need to try and explain to the children why Mommy and Daddy are not going to live in the same house. No matter what any of us think of either parent, they love their children and want the best for them. Wishing them all well, as divorce is such an ‘ugly’ thing for children — as well as adults.

    I think Kate is very self centered. All she cares about is the fame and money instead of thinking about all the RIGHT things. This show should be cancelled cause no one can stand her.

    This people is making my day really sad .. they need to keep the family drama for them self… please stop the show.

    rocky Says:


    You are so right. Jon wants his privacy, Kate wants to be out there. I hope when she’s alone with her thoughts she reevaluates what should be important in her life.

    Jon was alwas the timid one. The man has grown up and he’s not taking any crap from anyone. Good for him! It’s about time!

    shelby Says:

    I highly doubt the network pulled the plug. WHY would they when the ratings were so high? I think there’s more to the story. Don’t believe everything you read.

    I hope Jon grows up and understands that he has a responsibility to his wife and children. Bailing on them just because he’s unhappy is not the mature thing to do. It’s not all about you anymore. You are a husband and father. It’s called RESPONSIBILITY!

    To those that think she is controlling… someone has to be. With 8 kids, it’s a requirement. His laid back approach wasn’t doing anything to support 8 children.

    its good that they are taking a break from the show. maybe taking a break will help the family figure somethings out.

    Cheri Says:

    They are only going on “HIATUS” so that the Gosselins can work with their attorneys. Just another ploy to bring in viewers come August. I won’t believe any of this new BS until I hear a written statement from TLC themselves saying they fired Kate Gosselin and her greedy self.

    Enough already. Is destroying 8 innocent children’s lives worth the money you made? REALLY?
