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.

7. 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 are as bad as the Gosselins. What kind of parent puts a t-shirt like that on their child??

This article is terribly written! Are there no editors at TMZ? Who cares about Jon and Kate, could you not think of any other ways to write "we're told", it's only in the small article 9 times!!

Please get both of these losers off the TV! They are both selfish and interested only in money- not those poor kids. And Kate being the more responsible one..? You have got to be kidding- UGH!

Kate is desperate to hang on to the gravy train... that is why she is appearing to be the doting mother. And TMZ seems to want to dish dirt about Jon, obviously because they favor Kate and want to affect public opinion. Don't forget what a bitch Kate was for all the years of the show. She is the one who decided to make a career of exploiting the kids... Of course, Jon is just as bad because he went along. - This show needs to be DONE. The kids are obviously not taken care of by either parent. Kate uses the cameras more to show her "devotion" because she needs to insure her future. LOSERS!

Good luck Kate! It is now understandable why you did some of the things that you did when the show first came on. Even back then maybe you knew that Jon was going to turn out to be irresponsible. Always remember that the kids are number one and all this other stuff doesn't matter.

Jon is an immature, selfish child. No wonder Kate left his ass. His actions are for himself only and not one bit for his kids as he said on the show that "I all for my kids". Kate is all the better off with one less child--her immature husband. The judge that gave Kate more control over the assets did a great thing, now Jon can't blow all the money on girls, smoking and booze. I would never watch a show about divorced deadbeat balding dads.

The bigger the bitch, the more the judges side with them. Married guys NEVER learn...stop marrying the bitches!!! By the way, the 6 year old that wrote this article needs to go to school now.

I knew I disliked him for some reason. Now I know why. He's still growing up and using his children to lure women, fame, and attention? I can understand also why Kate seemed to be always telling him what to do. He needs guidance? He hit his mid-like crisis and decided Kate was too bitchy and old and the children were actually talking back and not as easy to control. What an example of the manly species? Go to it Kate and take care of your children and don't look back. He isn't worth your thoughts. He may have fathered your children but it looks as if he was only the sperm donor. Let him keep doing this thing and finally all the young girls and advertisers will see him for what he really is. He'll be a lonely, poor, and pitiful excuse and still be blaming everybody else for his situation. He's due his own karma.

Too bad Kate didn't realize what a jerk Jon really is before she had all those kids with him.

I think the judge was right in giving her control of finances. Even if She is a controlling bitch who needs slapped back into the reality of how you should talk to and treat your kids!

Of course we all know what he's spending his money on....how sad. I hope he gets taken to the cleaners by the court system, and what a pathetic idea, "Divorced Dads Club" LMFAO!!!! Give it up John... Even though Kate is being made to look like a "meanie" atleast she is still being responsible and putting her children first...

There is no such thing as reality tv    

Jon was the one who said he hated the cameras, yet he is always in the public eye. He seems to have become a playboy, although God knows why!

I feel bad that this all had to play out on tv and think maybe the show should end for the sake of the children.
