Jon & Kate's Fight -- Blame the Babysitter

8/14/2009 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can blame the babysitter for Jon and Kate Gosselin's blowup last night.

Play video

Sources close to Jon and Kate tell TMZ that Kate was upset because Jon wanted to leave the kids with Stephanie Santoro -- the babysitter who was handpicked by Jon.

We're told Kate has serious trust issues with Santoro, and doesn't want her playing nanny with her kids. Kate went to the house to watch the kids instead of Santoro -- and that sparked the fight that ended with Kate calling 911.

Jon pretty much confirmed all this -- in his words -- this morning at his house. When in doubt, blame the nanny.

Sooo.....anyone who is "PRO-KATE" is a "bitter housewife with a gazillion kids?"

I prefer to think that they are smart.

Following that same "logic", I guess that means anyone who is "PRO-JON" is a selfish, out-of-shape jackass in the midst of a mid-life crisis, who is actually stupid enough to think that 23-year-old skanks find them attractive?
If you say so!

JON IS AWESOME!! KATE IS GOING BALISTIC AND ACTING REALLY STUPID. KATE IS THE ONE WHO WANTED A DIVOICE, SHE IS THE ONE WHO WANTED TO BE ON HER OWN, SHE IS THE ONE WHO WANTED A CAREER. NOW SHE IS TRIPPING BECAUSE JON HAS A BABYSITTER SHE DOESNT LIKE. I HATE HER! SHE IS SUCH A BITCH. SHE IS STILL TRYING TO CONTROL EVERYTHING. JON IS STILL BEING COOL ABOUT THINGS AND JUST LETTING SLEEPING DOGS LAY.

YOU GO JON!!! WE LOVE YOU!

I think Jon had one of his "girlfriends" over and Kate found out. So in his words she is the "babysitter". Yeah right! lol

Attention whores. The more attention that these morons can generate the more money they make. The only innocent people in this whole mess are the children. This crap is all faked for the publicity.

Good for him!!!! I watched some of the earlier shows and have to say it's about time he took a stand to that control freak. She spends 3 weeks a month traveling for so called "work" and when she's in town leaves the kids with babysitters/nannies to run errands. So, why is it when Jon is with the kids there is a double standard. I watched her interviews this week and can sooooo see thru her little pity party act. She is so transparant. I don't feel any sympathy for her. My mother always told us "it's not just about getting the man you have to work at keeping the man". Seeing her on "Today" though she is obviously delusional cuz she doesn't she think she did ANYTHING to contribute to the demise of her marriage. Sad, very sad!

Why would he need a babysitter when it's his time with the kids? He's supposed to be spending this time with his children not out and about on the town while his kids spend time with a stranger. And why did he call the police for such a stupid reason? NIce way to provide a stable home life for the children.

For someone who could not handle all the media attention he surely gets to the fence enough to talk to them and have photo ops. This guy is not going through a mid-life crisis; he is more like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, total regression. I would like to see the court ordered custody settlement; I thought they just arranged their visits which would give him no legal right not to allow her on the property. Another issue is that one parent (either Jon or Kate) felt the children were not being supervised correctly or by a competent person it would over rule any custody order. So with all that said, it was GRANDSTANDING on Jon’s part, just another media intervention for him.

The so called babysitter was the same bartender/actress/model seen coming out of his garage apt at 4 am.
Would you want a woman like that who sells shooters in a bar babysitting your kid. I use the term loosely
as babysitting the kids more like sitting on something of dad's?
With the reputations of all the druggie trash he has been known to associate with I'd be upset too with
him brining them into the home and around the kids.... She hasn't even taken her wedding rings off yet ,
so as not to upset the kids and he is sleeping with his whores around them .

Kate shouldn't have shown up that's the agreement. But I love at the end of the video where jon says "if she'll approve mine I'll approve hers". Grow up you loser!!

In the beginning I felt sorry for this guy, then he has an affair and publically shoves it in not only his wifes face but his kids face too. I also believe that Kate got a call from one of the older kids telling her what was going on and this prompted her to show up. This guy says he wants time with his kids.. well maybe when he got a new place it should have included enough room to bring those kids to HIS home so they could begin getting used to being alone with him, He is not the stronger parent and his parenting skills lack. Why wasnt he court ordered to take parenting classes to learn to deal with 8 kids that he also helped bring into this world. I love the fact that he is so self absorbed in himself and has obviously put himself above his kids. His actions will speak in the outcome of this divorce. I think the only reason he is still around is for the money. This guy seems like the kind of dad that can and would walk away rather than deal with child support and being involved. Kate was a uber b**ch to him in the marriage but I am starting to think that it is because this guy has no idea of how to be a man and someone had to deal with things and she was it, as a result she became hateful and demeaning to him. This happens everyday in marriages all over.

The judge needs to ammend Jons visitation and have a court ordered person overseeing his parenting. Kate needs to get into counseling and deal with all the anger and find herself again. I see Jon walking away as soon as the show stops running and she will ultimately be a single parent raising the kids.
