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.

Wow,my hat is off to Kate for BEING THERE for the kids AND for safeguarding their money/future.

What a complete SLEAZEBAG John turned out to be. No wonder he gets on so well with Michael Blohard. And do John and Michael seriously think that ANYONE on the planet would want to watch their worthless arses on another reality tv show? Hahahahaa, hardly!

"138. Kate is the better parent? Well, I'll be damned! Kate is a crazy narcissistic bitch who sold her children's lives for money and fame. Those "tups" have had a camera shoved in their face and up their asses ALL of their life. All I can say about Jon is "Run Man..Run!" Kate does not want sole custody of her 8 money makers. She would never ask the court for that. You want Jon to disappear from his children's lives huh? Those kids are going to be some fu_d up teenagers without Jon! Cheer up Jon, 11 more days!

Could this be good ole Haily Glassman cheering Jon on? If not, someone with her emotional maturity, for sure.

"88. 72. JON IS COMMITTING ADULTERY AND SHOULD NOT HAVE A SHOW DUH!! KATE IS MAINLY TAKING CARE OF THE KIDS. HE SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO EVEN SEE THE KIDS AT ALL!!!

===

"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. :-)

Sure sounds like that Glassman chick has been a BUSY BEAVER here (oh, yeah, and with Jon too.)

Yah, let's reward Jon Slimeball for dumping his family, committing adultery and blowing the kids cash - by giving him another tv show!

And even if Kate needs to put aside college money for the twins alone, figure cheap colleges still cost about $10k a year (including books, fees and perhaps dorm living)...times four years, times 2 kids is $80k. So yes, she did need to stash a significant amount of cash away for them.

So pimping your completely broken down relationship and kids on TV is what white trash AMERICANS now do to support TOO many kids from invitro??? Please boycott this entire clan....just like we did herpes1/herpes2 aka Speidi aka losers from the Hills. These kids are being harmed by having to parade in front of cameras for a living. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These kids are no longer babies, they are not so cute anymore. Please stop posting on these two losers and make them go away. I could care less who Jon dates or what awful hairdo Kate sports. They are nobody creeps who refuse to work for a living. They want easy money, free trips, free plastic surgery, free hair plugs, free teeth whitening and on and on and on. What they are finding out is that sadly, there is no free lunch. Nothing is ever, ever "free".

and the fact that Ed Hardy is giving Jon a platform to pimp t-shirts over being a responsible adult and father is enough to make me boycott TLC forever. pimping and whoring is all these people know. I hate ED Hardy clothes.

Throw Jon off the show. Call it Just Kate Plus Eight. TLC will make a lot of money if they make it a show for single moms.

Who cares about Jon Gosselin anymore? he has shown his colors. I really thot it was Kate's fault he quit a job so she could have help at home, and i hated teh way she demeaned him by scolding him and yelling at him. I've watched teh show from inception and loved it so much. If they dont have any money left that is their own fault and they should have made smart investments from the getgo. We are talking millions of dollars. I knew he would get fed up and I dont blame him, and I hate her whining on tv and in magazines. Note taht she doesn't scream at the kids anymore? hmmm I hope she sees the old episodes and realizes what she has done and accepts the responsibility. HE HOWEVER is being a nut case with the way he is acting since the papers were filed....not a fine example of a christian man who should be a fine role model for his eight children. They may have to sell their big house and land and live in smaller quarters again. I had two aunts who had 11 and 12 kids respecively and they had 3 bedroom homes with lots of bunkbeds. Instead of promoting the show for the 'childrens sake' (kate) they should have saved their money. Its for money now..plain and simmple...it stinks and I haveno reason to watch kate or jon on any show they are on anymore I hope TLC cancels them and fast.
