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.

TLC needs to drop this show NOW! The reality of this reality show is that it has fed into the destruction of a marriage and soon will lead into the destruction of healthy children. Both these parents need to grow up and get their priorities straight. By the way, all this is BOTH of their faults. 100% both their faults!

Let him do the show this way Kate can get child support from him once the divorce is final. Unfortunately now he is intitled to half of what they brought in together.What he probably does not know is that he is also responsible for half of the debt that occured during the marraige (1.1 mil home)
While she put a majority of her towards the childrens future, he spent his on a NYC apartment, BMW'S, Drinking, Girl Friends, Clothes, 4 wheel quads, etc..
So let him do a show and when he gets paid, he can shell out the rent for NYC, then child support, and after that he wont have enough money left to buy an Ed Hardy knockoff shirt.

WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED!! TLC needs the KILL this show now & put it & everybody else of our collective misery; especially those kids! I watched the show one time back before they split & thought Kate was a major b#@tch & Jon was an uninvolved wimp collecting a paycheck. He's proven to have hideous judgement getting involved with that new chick of his; she reminds me of someone I'd see in a profile from my 15 yr old daughters facebook. SCARY! But then again, Kate did her fair share to drive him away. I remember thinking even then, how long is this guy gonna last with this shrew of a woman? They all need to just GO AWAY & get some counseling!!

Kate didn't put the money into an account for the children's college, because the state of Pennsylvania guaranteed they would pay for their college upon their births. So in other words, there was no reason to even do this show. What a sham.

Jon is irresponsible and portrays all that is wrong with voyeuristic television. I like my TMZ, of course. But to actually SEE a parent ACTUALLY hurt his family (and prace off, proud of his conquests, money, and fame) is silly at best and horrific at least.

Jon and Kate are probably the only parents in the world that get paid for taking care of their own kids. When TLC is filming they are right there being the good mommy and daddy. When the cameras are not there they are" running errands". Dad is in NY; Mom is in Maryland or God knows where. The money the kids make even pays for the nannies and baby sitters.So Mom and Dad can live their own lives.
If you think I am wrong ask yourself ; would Jon and Kate have a show if it were not for the kids.
Sad sad sad for those kids.

#14 You hit the nail on the head. It's not okay for any parent to do what all these morons do but unfortunately there will always be a market for this crap. Women like Kate run off to fertility clinics when they already have two perfectly healthy children and next thing you know they have a multiple birth (Octomom anyone?) and they are rewarded with fame and fortune. We live on an overpopulated planet that is fast running out of resources but while people are screeching about the environment, no one is telling people to voluntarily limit the size of the their families. We need more birth control not fertility.
As for the Gosselins, control freaks like Kate lose it very easily when things don't go their way. It's no wonder those two older girls are so angry and ill-behaved, their only example is a hostile controlling mother who responds by spanking in a fit of temper when they act up. That is why spanking is illegal in so many places, because it is often done in anger which results in child abuse. We all see kids acting up and think they could use a good tap on the behind but that is not what generally happens. One look at that disaster that Kate calls a hair "do" tells you exactly who she is. All spikey and aggressive in the back and then falling down long in the front says: " I can be edgy and mean but soft and feminine at the same time." Sorry Kate, nobody buys it. Wouldn't you just love to take a pair of clippers to that mess?
