Jon & Kate Minus 8?

5/30/2009 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon and KateTLC 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.

listen i have two kids and if you dont run with a tough hand - your life will be nuts - if kate didnt run her house and her oh so
dumb husband like she did then those kids would be wild and they are far from that - i give kate all the credit for having well mannered kids that know how to say thank you, i love you and can behave in public like they do - if it was up to oh so wimpy jon then those kids would surely be screwed up - i certainly would run my house like a military camp like she does - she has no choice - jon is such a wimp he is a joke - grow up jon and let kate raise those kids - she doinig a great job - for all of you doubting her try one day in her life with 8 kids - try it and you will se -

THE CHILDREN WOULD PROBABLY ENJOY THE PEACE AND QUIET OF NOT HAVING CAMERAS UP THEIR *SSES ALL DAY LONG, ALL THEIR LIFE, WHILE 'MOMMY DEAREST' IS GONE FOR WEEKS AT A TIME ANYWAY -- FLYING AROUND WITH HER 'BODYGUARD' -- AND THEIR DAD'S SPENDING HIS TIME AT BARS AND WITH 'BABE.'

The kids would be better off at a boarding school in Switzerland, as far away from their idiotic parents as possible.
But why is this newspaper printing completely unfounded retarded stuff?

wtf    

they should have a show called "Jon and Kate Free Again!", where they sell the 8 kids to a russian orphanage and they just lay around the house naked and doing a ton of coke and having orgies with hookers.

I would watch that show.

Those poor kids -- I don't watch this travesty any more -- I did twice, and that was enough.

I'd watch it if was "Jon and Kate Duke It Out While the Kids Are Safely Off in Switzerland -- Having Some Semblance of a Quiet, Sane Life," though.

Kate is the biggest rag ever. What a B. No wonder she has managed to chase Jon off. Kate is a total wreck. She needs to have her head shrinked!

ok, this is soooo crazy !!!!

I bet if we all gave it some "rational" thoughts, it only seems likely that it will be..."KATE"

it is pretty clear that jon doesn't want anypart of this. just let him go and spend his money. maybe he will go to Switzerland, with the kids.

I WISH this were true -- getting those children away from Crazed Kate and Lame Jon (both of whom seem to be around less and less anyway), and into SOME sort of stable environment, would be the best thing for them at this point.

Fan Since 2007!!!    

US Magazine is reporting that other mom with 8 plus 6 kids has absolutely signed on for a "quasi-reality" t.v. series. Described as a series of specials chronicling the events in her kids lives and told from her point of view . My expensive, brand new, high end HD T.V. is now absolute trash.
