TLC: Jon Gosselin is Self-Destructive, Unprofessional and Opportunistic

Jon Gosselin‘s legal team has been telling TLC lawyers that he “unequivocally believes that his children’s continued participation in your client’s television production is ‘detrimental‘ to his children. Accordingly, Jon expects that your client will cease and desist from any and all further production which includes his eight children.”

TLC is firing back with their own lawyers in a statement obtained by “We are aware of Jon Gosselin‘s recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin‘s repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.”

And the claws are out, people!!

    Yes, for once he’s right. How can TLC think the filming of the show isn’t detrimental for the kids?

    Jon does realize that without the show someone is going to need to put food in those babies mouths? Does he plan on working again? Perhaps his attorney will help explain in terms he understands: No TLC show = less Ed Hardy shirts…

    Jon’s lawyers take an extreme position in order to get a more favorable outcome for him when they eventually meet in the middle with Kate’s representation. typical..

    GO JON! He finally has a smart lawyer. Don’t care what people’s opinions are now. most of the public is just mean to jon b/c of ignorance…they’ll believe anything written in the media. If jon is the bad guy, we’ll hate him. if jon is portrayed as good, he may be good. This guy may be slow, not the brightest bulb out there BUT he expressed how he wanted to end last season. Jon and kate were on the couch in “conflict” whether to continue the show – jon was done, kate wasn’t.

    the world is cruel. they can turn their backs on you and you’ll see the ugliest things. once everything clears out and things are turning right, the world will embrace you again….we live in a hypocritical world

    Put yourself in Jon’s shoes. Who wouldn’t be pissed to be thrown off the gravy train! I hope he gets what he wants. Why should Kate rake in all the money off the kids?!!! Either they both exploit them or none. That’s what is fair.

    LILLIBET Says:

    Jon has stepped up to the plate, Someone needs to take control and demand that the cameras are removed from the house so that the children can quit working. TLC and Kate seem to have no qualms about exploiting the children. No doubt they are already writing scripts for episodes that will take place away from the house. Except for the sheeples, it is difficult to understand why anyone would criticize Jon for finally doing the right thing.

    Angel Says:

    Kate was stupid enough to think SHE was the attraction of the show and they could just drop Jon…more money for her. I’m glad Jon is finally showing some balls and has stopped being her doormat and so passive. This show was never about the kids…it was about making money…period! Jon was always the more involved parent…Kate just sat back moaning and groaning about everything and shouting out orders.

    It is Kate Gosselin that put HER name on a scrap-book of her children (and loved having her children in the shower or having BMs) that any pedophile could pick up…$$$$…exploitative…..$$$ …..TLC. TLC encourages fertility drugs and makes millions off of the exploitation of children, obese, disabled, deformed, dwarfs, the weak.

    TLC is no longer the “The Learning Channel”. They script, lie, manipulate already narcissistic, neurotic greedy parents into pimping their children for their greedy profit. Shame on TLC’s sponsors for continuing to support them.

    Posts #9, 10 & 11…. Thank you!!! refreshing to see that there are logical people on here. Say what you want about how he is acting but place yourself in his shoes people. If your spouse cut you out of a project that involved your kids and monies coming in and a lot of it wouldn’t you want a piece of the pie and wouldn’t you also be screaming if you weren’t. It’s nor moral but it’s their reality right now. Afterall, the show is about the kids and he is apart of the kids. If Kate has been given the “gift of gab” she should also have no problem stopping the show and proceed with her OWN project, not involving the children and go from there. But, until that happens and the kids are needed for the income this is going to become a very bitter divorce. How sad though…. it’s bitter not because of how they were to each other over the years but because of a PRODUCTION COMPANY! who could give a rats a.. about them! Again, corporate America at its finest!

    @ava rose:

    Jon may have said he wanted to be done with filming but NOT because filming had a detrimental effect upon his children. His desire to be done with the show sprang from wanting to be seen as an individual and not as Jon of “Jon & Kate + 8.” In fact, prior to this, he has repeatedly stated filming was not harmful to the kids.

    Jon’s actions have, especially in the last several months, been completely self-motivated: he pursues his desires and damned with who he hurts or what his kids may see. Obviously his actions now are no different. Don’t give this guy credit for having values he most definitely lacks.

    lol I finally agree with this guy. Take the kids off the show—their lives will be screwed up if you dont.

    TLC needs to cancel this freak show.

    The People who continue to watch this show, are same people who drive slowly pass car accidents. They want to see all the damage. Take it all in for their personal enjoyment.

    I feel sorry for the kids. It is hard enough to deal with ones parents getting divorce. Now they have to deal with a Network, Mother, and a Father out to make money off of them.

    These kids will never know what life is with out a camera following them around. When the Lights and Camera men finally go away will these kids know what the real world is really like? No staged outings so they can have a show. No TV interviews. No free stuff given to them.

    Kate go back to nursing. A real job.
    Jon get another job in IT. A real job.
    TLC cancel this show ASAP. Get out of the Tabloid business.

    They both displayed erratic behavior but Jon was followed and photographed everywhere and Kate was seldom if ever intruded upon when she was on her own without the kids. I suspect TLC had something to do with this (as has been said on these threads before).
