TLC: Who Needs J.Lo? We Got Jon & Kate!

5/27/2009 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources at TLC tell us the J.Lo reality show they wanted so badly a year ago is dead as a doornail, thanks in large part to the success of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

Jon and Kate

It was just a year ago that TMZ broke the story that J.Lo and TLC were trying to come to terms on a reality show but J.Lo was adamant that she would not put her kids on TV -- she wanted to focus on ... yawn ... behind the scenes on creating a new J.Lo fragrance. TLC, we're told, wanted to show the kiddies.

Fast forward to Monday night -- Jon & Kate scored an astonishing 9.8 million viewers. TLC sources tell us it's pretty clear the J.Lo ain't gonna sell tickets anymore, so they have shelved the show. As one TLC source put it, "It was on life support for awhile, and now we've just lost interest."

The moral -- even big stars have their 15 minutes, so they should make the most of it while they can.

"Jon & Kate Separate...and Head to Divorce Court!"

That could be the title of Jon and Kate Gosselin’s next reality TV show, as those close to the scandal-plagued pair say they’re heading for a nasty $10 million divorce.

Not only is the twosome tussling over their bank account, according to sources close to the couple, both of them have also consulted high-powered lawyers behind each other’s backs.

“Jon said their goal is to be legally separated by July 15 because Kate wants to move on quickly,” an insider told The ENQUIRER.

“Jon is going to push for half of their money, but Kate is determined to hang on to as much as she can — and they’re worth more than you think.”

Based on a reported paycheck of up to $75,000 for each episode, plus $20,000 per speaking engagement and additional income from book and autograph sales, the Gosselins are rolling in the dough.

“Needless to say, there’s a small fortune at stake here — easily $10 million,” said a family member. “And Jon and Kate will be fighting over it like cats and dogs!”

Does this woman EVER smile? I admit I have wateched the past 2 episodes trying to figure out what all the hoopla is about... I still don't know but that woman just looks pissed all the time.. She's also very sarcastic to everyone she comes in contact with. I don't blame him for not wanting to be around her on her birthday... what a beatch!

Maybe if J. Lo & Skelator file for divorce, TLC will think about giving them a show so America can watch.
