Jon and Kate Gosselin Will Date Other People On TV

Attention, Jon and Kate Plus 8 Fans!

The show will definitely be different when it returns on TLC this coming Monday night. TLC president Eileen O’Neill read a statement about the reality show at Television Critics Associated Panel in Pasadena, Calif. yesterday.

Among the changes in store for Jon and Kate Gosselin?

The couches: “The show comes back on Monday and most new episodes remain a work in progress. But I will tell you: the iconic couch is gone. Jon and Kate will now have separate chairs for their interview.”

Interaction with the kids: “You’re still going to see two parents that love their kids, but you’ll be seeing them parenting separately. You’ll see what it’s like when Kate has to put up a tent for a backyard camping experience by herself. Or, you’ll see Jon trying to cook up a pizza for the kids.”

Dating on the show: “As far as new people and places that may be cycling into Jon and Kate’s life, we are taking it on a case-by-case basis. This is real life. It’s important to remember that our cameras are only there for moments in time, and those moments have limits.”

We can’t wait to see what they have in store for us (please show Hailey Glassman, please show Hailey Glassman!)
