Jon Gosselin Gets No Hardy Endorsement From TLC

By: Celebuzz / August 17, 2009

Things are getting blurrier for Jon Gosselin—and not just because of his increasingly complicated love life.

Radar Online reports that TLC, the network that carries Jon & Kate Plus 8, has decided to blur all brand logos that Gosselin wears on the show. And yes, that includes his precious Ed Hardy clothing.

Jon & Kate Plus 8 viewers might have noticed the blurring on last week’s episode, and now the execs have decided to make it permanent.

Why? 

Apparently, the bigwigs at TLC felt that Gosselin was exploiting his place on the show to pimp his favorite brand—which is particularly distasteful, in light of recent rumors that Gosselin has been trying to strike a designing deal with Ed Hardy.

“The relationship between Jon and the network has become very strained,” says a source. “TLC feels like they are being used by Jon.”

Used by Jon Gosselin? Join the club, kiddies.

Still, the guy has eight hungry mouths to feed, and could probably use the extra work that a clothing-designing gig would bring in.
