TLC Responds to Jon Gosselin’s Temper Tantrum

By: Celebuzz / October 1, 2009

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?
