Jon and Kate Divorce Docs -- Not for Your Eyes

6/23/2009 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Every single aspect of Jon and Kate Gosselin's lives is on display for anyone with the two C's -- curiosity and cable -- but don't expect to feast your beady eyes on their divorce docs ... they're sealed.

Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce papers

The docs, which were filed in Montgomery County, PA, are under lock and key -- safely hidden away from the media hype that has fueled the show's massive ratings.

We're told all the court clerks were personally called by the head of the department, and told under no circumstances are the papers to be released -- and if they were, it means BIG trouble.

If you notice our screen grab from the court's website, the docs weren't scanned in for public viewing (circled).

What we do know: Kate filed the papers and the filing cost her $282.50.

Oh Please    

TLC put the show on hiatus today! TLC must have received some serious
complaints from sponsors. You know Kate didn't mention a thing about
hiatus. TLC went too far last night. Thank God for the children's
sake. Two of the most greedy selfish parents I have ever witnessed.

First of all , Jon and Kate knew they COULDN'T AFFORD CHILDREN , that's why , they signed up with TLC to do this reality show . THEY'RE USING THESE CHILDREN TO BENEFIT THERE BANK ACCTS , which is horrible on jon and kate's part.
TLC , JON AND KATE are all at FAULT . jon has no BACKBONE to get a REAL JOB . They both gotten to comfortable with TLC FLIPPING THE BILL , they didn't want a job . Why should they if they've some company paying for everything.
Kate and jon has mental issues , for using there own children . They arent raising these children , TLC IS . Why didnt TLC just adopt children and made there own show , it would of been cheaper . KATE DESERVES to be alone , she's self centered , nagging , low down person . TLC SHOULD PULL THE PLUG ON THIS SHOW . VIEWERS ARE TIRED OF THIS SHOW . ALL REALITY SHOWS ALL ABOUT MONEY , NOTHING ELSE , USES CHILDREN ........

There are three reasons why the show will not go into permanent hiatus; #1. TLC #2. Kate Gosselin #3. Jon Gosselin.

This past episode, yet another example of a reality show turned infomercial, this time for an obscenely expensive "playhouse" ($7,000.00 plus each), showed us why this poor excuse for television needs to end. The ONLY way this is going to end is if we all stop watching. I, for one, will do my part.

I really can't figure out why anyone gives a crap about these people or these types of shows. What kind of people actually watch this nonsense? It does nothing for me; there's nothing real about it. It's pathetic that these so-called reality shows are even being made. It exploits and ruins people. And people find this entertainment? I don't get it.

J & K live in BERKS county in Pennsylvania as the addresses for both in the court filing show - Sinking Spring, Pa is in BERKS county, not MONTGOMERY county. My question - how is it that they get to file in MONTGOMERY county? I always thought the law in Pa. was that you had to file where you lived.......?????

IF CHILDREN watch this show last night , they will ask there parents if they can have a play house like that .

NOT MANY PARENTS can nor will they buy a playhouse , because its not a NEED , but want. those playhouses

I live in Montgomery County in PA. How could they file in Montgomery County if they live in Berks County? Reading is in Berks County. Why is it many news stations and tabloid sites are saying it was filed in the wrong county? Yesterday a lot of media outlets claimed it was in Doylestown in Bucks County. Doylestown is in Bucks county but no where near Reading which is the area that Kate and Jon live in. Someone needs to get this straightened out. Everyone is so quick to jump on the John and Kate divorce bandwagon but none of you want to get certain specifics straight.

I for one really enjoyed their shows. I've been watching for quite some time now and in my opinion, Kate is a little bossy but they both love their children and wanted only the best from the experience. I think they loved each other as well. On one episode they even re-married.

I think the tabloids and media helped with the demise of this marriage. I also beleive that when people started to badger Jon about the way Kate treated him, he started taking notice and was embarrassed by the "wuss" persona. Think about it, after all, he's rich now and can get any skank he so desires. She's nice looking as well but I don't think she'll start to date anytime soon.

The kids are adorable and it's really too bad. It amazes me to read that so many people find comfort in the fact that they are splitting up. In my opinion, there is never anything funny or amuzing when two people decide to split who could otherwise stay together. There was no physical abuse, no drunken behavior no severe name calling .... etc....,

Also, each and every one of us who watched the show knows good and well that the kids "ARE NOT" being exploited. Now that's a bunch of bull. They have also benefited greatly by way of their parents because of the show. In my opinion, they get the best of everything. And, if you really want to call a spade a spade, the media brought the entire family into the lime light by advertising that she had given birth to 6 babies, thus they were t.v appearances, a show, a guest spot on Oprah and the likes. So Jon and Kate can't possibly be fully responsible for what has happened. I only wish they'd been strong enough not to allow haters to ruin their relationship.

Her brother and his wife should be ashamed for airing their opinions on national t.v. His wife was on a couple of shows where she gladly took the kids and pretended to adore them. Now all of a sudden, they are dis-pleased w/them. Again, bull. I think they were not getting a fair cut regarding their air time and hit the roof.

Octo mom does'nt have one up on the Gosselins. She decided to have a harem of kids w/o a husband. At least the Gosselins were married, both w/good jobs Kate, a nurse and Jon an IT technician. Octo mom had nothing and was skimming off of her parents first and now off of the sweat of taxpayers.

Lastly, I am just sad to see that it has come to this. However, I am happy because apparently they have made bank and will never be poor and if the show continues inspite of the divorce they will continue to make money, re-runs, books you name it .... just as the married twice, maybe they will find their way back to each other. In any event, I for one wish them nothing but happiness ..... the entire family !!!!!!!

From the way Jon acted last night, it seems that he was probably embarassed and mortified after watching himself and how kate treated him on television for the whole world to see. It was obvious at the end of last season that he didn't want to do the show anymore and she completely disregarded him and how he felt. Yea its all about the kids first...but your marriage should come in at a very close second and you should make sacrifices to make the marriage work. It seemed that kate wanted to continue filming even if it upset jon.

Texas HoldEm    

Kate is a "FRIGID" Bitch.....I hope her 15 minutes of fame are at the 14 minute mark!

They both are SICK playing their marriage out in the media....Kate is a media "HO".

Anyone viewing any episodes to line their pockets with money are sick puppies!

A disfunctional family at its BEST!

Playing the "I'm gonna make as much money" off my kids....laugh all the way to the bank......

Another couple as selective Christians.......I am Christian....& they are called DIVORCE courts before you play around...No self-respect on either side.....

most kids don't get expensive playhouses when their parebnts divorce. most kids going through this would have to 'give up' stuff cuz finances change, like camp or dance or a sport . . . .oh no not these kids, now everyone will feel sorry for these 8 moppets and send them all sorts of free stuff and trips and exclusive visits to zoo's amusement parks and ski trips! Kate will benefit now too, oh soo many people will feel sorry for this wretched excuse for a mom and send her consolation gifts of surgery jewelry applicances fancy trips and clothing as well, all new plots for new episodes of HER show. And jon oh poor poor emasculated jon, get's to live the big life not working, living in trump tower and farting around on atv's and choppers, poor poor jon will get his choice of fame hungry floozies to stick his wang at, TLC should pay for that mans vasectomy! people THIS is not the reality of divorce! I watched the show in the beginning with my 8 year old daughter when it was sweet but i bacame apparent to me that it was all about product placement and freebies. I stopped watching and disueded my daughter as well, but she was picking up on it too, one of those older twins has Kates genes and already has HUGE anger issues, my daughter said she was a spoiled brat! I did not watch last night but heard and read all the hype -Kate inbetween her 'it's all for the kids' crap, 'the show MUST go on' uuuhhh I think not sweetheart, it doesn't have to go on, it would be better for the kids for it not to go on, but she's become a money hungry monster at the expense of her children!
