Jon & Kate Plus Aggravation

8/19/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon & Kate Plus AggravationWe're told TLC is not happy with Jon Gosselin, but Jonnie boy may not care, because he has his sights set on a new show.

We're told Jon is in talks with a major production company -- Endemol -- to appear in a show called "Divorced Dad's Club." We're told the show chronicles the lives of famous divorced fathers. We're told producers talked to Jon, but he's concerned about his TLC contract.

But Jon may still have a shot at the new show, because we're told TLC is not happy with his conduct lately on "Jon & Kate Plus 8." We're told they fired off a letter to him, claiming he was in violation of the morals clause of his contract, partly because he's been seen going in and out of bars and drinking.

We're told Kate is actually pulling up the slack Jon has created. She now has the kids more than 60% of the time and is increasingly involved -- even when she doesn't have physical custody -- because she's concerned for the children's welfare, emotionally and financially.

We're told all the money they made last season from "Jon & Kate Plus 8" went into a joint account. Jon and Kate each took a cut, but Jon spent his share. Kate put a big chunk of the money into a college fund for the kids, so not much was left over.

As for this season, sources say a judge gave Kate control of the family finances because she was deemed the more responsible party. Jon gets limited access to the account for basic stuff, and we're told he's not happy about it. Kate's people say Jon is making money on the side by selling pictures and stories of him and the kids to the tabloids.

What a sad fate for those children. They're gonna need a STRONG mother to toughen them up. Those twins already had issues when the sextuplets were newborns. I stopped watching this show. It used to put a smile on my face. Now I find it unbearably sad.

so what. You kiss Brad Pitt's butt for pimping his family and smoking hash and drinking with his kids in the same house but Jon is bad because he drinks when he's away from the children?

8. I had my daughter wear a "I hate the Gosselins" shirt to school,
but the teacher sent her home to change it.

Spoil sport teacher had no sense of humor.

You're a terrible parent. If you're still picking out clothes for your kid, they must be in elementary school. Way to try an invoke hatred in that type of environment. You probably embarrassed him/her. Who spends money on that kind of stuff anyways? Those people's lives are ruined and you're poking fun at their demise... that's gross.

*Kate the better parent?*

Excuse me while I ROFLMAO. She's away form her kids 95 per cent of the time. Her affair with the bodyguard made the marriage explode. god, there is so many things wrong with her that saying she is the "better parent" is just WRONG, WRONG a thousand times wrong. She is desperatly trying to save the gravy train that is crashing.

She even wanted to buy a condo in Maryland near her bodyguard/b/f, but tanked the idea after a lot of blacklash. Read up on her, people! There is more to this devil than meets the eye!

I've always known Jon was a creep. He is probably a sociopath. Kate is lucky to be rid of this sicko. It's just bad she has all those kids with him because having a selfish narcissistic father like that would be a nightmare.

I am    

I'm sick of the lot of them. Do pity the poor children...they'll probably implode/explode in the near future. The Gosselin's have disintergrated before viewers eyes...can you say the Loud family? When will these folk EVER learn? She is a fake, shrewish, wannabe bitch from nowhere. He is an underachieving, balding, unattractive, loser, wannabe chump from nowhere. Your plans for fame and fortune have blown up in your faces as you still attempt to con,grift and pimp the masses...and f*** a few. Your 15 minutes are over...be gone.

Kate is a control freak and Jon is a spineless selfish man. The split between them should have nothing to do with their concern for the well being of the children.
He is having his mid life crisis and ignoring his children. He himself said in a recent show, he hadn't seen the kids in a long time. He is always seen on his cell phone, while the children are being ignored. I think whether you like or dislike her, he is looking out for himself and she is looking out for the kids.

Editor have the night off? It's Endemol, and in the Jacko story, you misspelled Costco. Maybe you should hire people over the age of 12.

Two narcissistic, sociopaths
falling for each other and then finding out they can't stand
each other

Kate was forced to take control a long time ago as it was obvious Jon didn't care about doing anything responsible. So then he gets resentful because she had to nag him to be a dad and husband? And now he is running around like he has no family at all, making himself look stupid and I am sure making his kids feel bad. I mean having a nanny when it is "his time" with them? WTF?
