TLC Responds to Jon Gosselin's Temper Tantrum

TLC Responds to Jon Gosselin's Temper Tantrum-photo

Hey, you know how Jon Gosselin threw a hissy-fit this morning and demanded that production on Kate Plus 8 be shut down since he's not a prominent part of the show anymore?

Yeah, well, Kate Plus 8 network TLC has something to say about that.

People magazine reports that TLC has responded to Gosselin's cease-and-desist order, essentially calling him a self-centered brat who's shooting himself in the foot.

A statement released by TLC on Thursday reads,

"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."

Oh, how we'd love to be a fly on the wall during those conversations!

Have your say in the comments section: Do you think Gosselin was right to demand a halt to production of the show, or is he just being a jerk?

    The only good thing that Jon did was make 8 beautiful children, and at that he just contributed the sperm. These kids are now the unfortunate casualties in this mess. Kate (as bitchy as she could be to Jon) is by far the better role modle here.

    Go Kate Plus 8....Jon your 15 minutes are over (or I hope they are) and you may have really messed up your kids' future. How many other big families are on TV and they aren't having problems and they are not being effected in a negative way. Only yours, because you don't want the kids and don't want the responsibility, so now you're having a hissy fit. Just my opinion but that's what you show us every time you turn around. Just leave and go away with your 23 year old girlfriend and let Kate be the responsible parent and raise your children. Kate don't get that good job until after your divorce because loser Jon will be after your $$$ for support for him and his globe-trotting ways. Let him get his own job.

    How disgusting as a women that you think he is a role model for good dads!! He would be near his kids and not a series of different women (1 in his house with his kids in it!!) and parties if he were a decent parent. I AGREE WITH YOU LORI!!!

    Leave Jon alone! You people do not know him just what is in the media and i am sure that most of it is a lie. He is a good father and any woman would be lucky to have him. If you do not know him and what is really going on keep you comments to yourself!! IS THAT U HAILEY? IT HAS TO BE-LOVE YOUR ALIAS-

    Jon is a big Pussy!! I agree he doesn't mind havng loud crazy parties in his house with all of the chick de-lous but b/c his money is running low he is going to use his caring about the kids as an excuse to stop Kate from making any money that would only help the kidds have a better life. He just pissed becaused they can do it just as good without him., Jon really was the nith child all along..Lets face it.

    OOOHH, Now he wants the kids off the show? The kids have said "They Don't Like The Cameras" in their face all the time, Neither Jon, or Kate cared to listen to them. The show should, and will be cancelled, the rating are dropping more every week. I cant remember the last time I watched the show. They both need to get real jobs, like everyone else has to do.

    Jon is such a buzz-kill. Suddenly the show "endangers" his kids?? Wow, he's actually gonna have to get a job. Poor guy. Isn't Hailey's hooker money gonna be enough to support his whiney asian ass? Get on with your sad life and let Kate and the kids get on with theirs. Stop blaming your problems on being a young father and Kate. Maybe take responsibility for your OWN stupid actions?? Go away, they DON'T need you. You were only a sperm donor. And you continue to prove that.

    they both suck.it's agood thing he pull the kids off that show, even if it was out of greed. that is the best thing for those kids.both him and his wife should have enough money already to live comfortably. if they didn't manage there money wisely that's because they are greedy and don't care about the kids well being. now they are fighting over having there kids on the show? they need to start acting like parent and not like a bunch of whining ***hole. kate if you care about your kids take them off the show.

    Jon,Hope you get your own talk show.The dad's of the world need you.And I'm a woman, mother and grandmom. I think that you are a pathetic woman to support a father that sleeps with everything that walks, and chase after college age girls. He is a horrible role model. Glad I grew up have REAL MEN in my life. Sadly it looks like you have not.

    No I don't think its right! They need to keep doing the show because most people watch for the Kids and its their way of making money to survive. 8 Kids to provide for and save for college and things like that!! It seems to me he is just thing of himself right now.

    They BOTH suck. Right now I think he sucks more because he's acting like a 20 year old with no responsibilities. Kate sucks too but at least she's with the kids and not out partying with someone half her age.
