Kate Gosselin Lashes Out at Jon!
Radar Online reports that the spiky-coiffed Kate Plus 8 matriarch has issued a stern statement, condemning her ex for forcing the show into hiatus.
“I’m saddened and confused by Jon’s public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids. I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have. Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon’s priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well being.”
Claiming that his eight children were complaining about having to film the show, Jon unleashed his lawyers on TLC on Wednesday, slapping a cease-and-desist order on the show. Whether or not this has anything to do with TLC’s decision this week to dramatically cut Jon’s role on the series is a matter of public speculation.
Despite his lightened workload, the Ed Hardy-lovin’ papa has been a busy boy this week. In addition to forcing the brakes on Kate Plus 8, he also filed papers to postpone his impending divorce from Kate, sparking rumors that he might be trying to reconcile with his estranged wifey.
Judging from Kate’s new statement, he might be waiting a while on that reunion.
