Jon & Kate Minus 8?

TLC is pooh-poohing a story that "Jon & Kate Plus 8" will 86 the kiddies and send them off to Switzerland.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is running a story that the kids will be shipped off to boarding school and the show will be renamed "Jon & Kate Unleashed." According to the story, the Gosselin kids will make "occasional guest appearances" but the show will become "something sexy -- and perhaps even a little sinister."

Here's the deal. The story quotes Executive Producer Benny Temberton. But we contacted TLC and they say the story is bogus and they've never even heard of Benny. We checked -- B.T. is not in the credits.
