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.

IF BEING A STRONG PERSON MAKES KATE A B----, SO BE IT. SHE IS HOLDING THE FAMILY TOGETHER. HE IS RUNNING AROUND. YOU COULD AT LEAST TRY TO BE A LITTLE DISCREET. HE'S AN IDIOT. ABOUT THE POSSIBLE NEW SHOW, JON MAKES NO SENSE. HE WAS TIRED OF THE "FISH BOWL" ON HIS OWN SHOW, WELL, HOW WILL THE NEW SHOW BE ANY BETTER? HE IS NOT THINKING STRAIGHT. WHAT A SHAME, BUT JON IS NOT WORTH IT. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE KIDS. IF HE DID, HE WOULDN'T BE RUNNING AROUND WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER WOMEN. AND ACCORDING TO REPORTS, HE'S NOT EVEN HONEST TO THE WOMEN HE IS SEEING. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?? LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like who did not see this coming? Jon's now the party boy and spent all his money on big boy toys. It's sad to see someone who basically had nothing, came into money, then blew it all.A show called Divorced Dads, what a joke!! Jon & Michael Lohan sitting around bashing the people who had their children. Someone would have to pay me to watch it.

because she's concerned for the children's welfare, emotionally and financially.
Translation: I need to control EVERYTHING!!!!!! She is compulsive about this! She wants complete control of the kids and everything that affects them. Jon must be out of the picture because she cannot control him any longer. I'm amazed that TLC has fallen for her sob story and haven't seen the real picture. Everyone who has watched the show has seen her behavoir and most have sided with Jon. But Kate, dabbing her eyes with a hankie,wants everyone including TLC, to believe that she has been wronged. The truth of the matter is she's not being stuck with 60% of the time, she's GRABBING 10 more % of the time and will continue to do so until Jon is out of the picture.Stop her now and get her to a psy! Those kids NEED Jon to maintain some sence of normalcy in their lives!!!!

LOL You people actually take side in this debacle? Both Jon and Kate are freakin losers. No one is better then the other. She exploits her kids just as much as he does for her own self gain. Who the hell are you kidding?

WOW..Katezilla the better parent? That is FUNNY. She is by far the worst parent ever. She is the one who had an affair first with her bodyguard and she is the one who went to all the press outlets the FIRST time she talked, and the second and the third. She is the one who started the huge fight resulting in the cops being called to the home. ( nice for kids to see ) She is a freakin mess. Her kids will go back and watch the dvds of the show and realize SHE is the one who caused their daddy to leave. THEY WILL HATE HER EVEN MORE. NICE.

YIKES    

Why didn't TLC make sure almost all of the money automatically went into the childrens college fund, since they are the "SHOW". CANCEL the show so that Jon and Kate do not get another penny!! The house, all new furniture, expensive cars, etc. just shows how much of the kids money the parents have already spent.

You're a [f]ucking, [f]ucking, [F]UCKING moron and aren't fit for society. That [c]unt Kate probably cheated first w/ her paid -- but not by Kate (Discovery Communications) -- bodyguard "Mr. Gray" (later identified as Steve). Steve's married and has a young son.

Now what does your stupid [a]ss have to say about that? So a cheating spouse should be forever denied access to your kids? Please, just go swimming in the ocean w/ a cinder block chained to your ankle. You'd be doing the world a great service. :-)

It's funny how everyone thought Kate was the "bad guy" at first, but now the tables have turned. No wonder she had to be so bossy and controlling with this immature, lazy husband she had.
