Jon Gosselin tries to stop 'Kate Plus 8'




Jon Gosselin didn't seem to care for the idea that TLC would carry on their reality show without him, just Kate and eight little future therapy patients, so he's done what any other deadbeat dad would do: he lawyered up. It's good to see he cared when the paychecks were down, isn't it?

Gosselin had his attorney, Mark J. Heller, send the network a pair of letters saying tehy were no longer allowed to go to his family's home in Wernersville, Pa., The Insider says: "Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers," Heller wrote.

This is all because he's afraid that the show is ruining his kids, the letter says. Um, that statement should require looking in a mirror before he says it to anyone.

"Jon Gosselin unequivocally believes that his children's continued participation in your client's television production is 'detrimental' to his children," the first letter says. "Accordingly, Jon expects that your client will cease and desist from any and all further production which includes his eight children."

TLC wasn't too happy about the letters, but has agreed to suspend production for now.

"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," TLC said in a statement to People. "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."

When will all parties involved realize the only reason anybody watched was because they were waiting to see the inevitable marital meltdown between an unemployed loafer and a type A control freak? Mission accomplished; time to move on, TLC.
