See Jon Shop a Script!!!

In case you had any doubt that Jon Gosselin was thinking of moving on to greener ($$$$) pastures, take a look at this photo of Jonnie boy with Lindsay Lohan's dad, Michael -- wheeling and dealing for a new reality show.

As we first reported, Jon was talking to producers about a new show featuring celebrity divorced dads. Look at the picture -- featuring Lohan's fiancee holding a paper with the title "Divorced Dads Club." Also in the pic -- Mike Heller (sunglasses -- he manages Lindsay). The guy in the black T-shirt behind Jon is Charlie Walk from Endemol -- the production company that is developing the project. We don't know who the dude on the right is.

A rep from Endemol tells us Jon came to them but it was established he couldn't do the show because of his commitment to TLC and "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Endemol says the show is still a go despite Jon's absence.

OMG! A tv show for all of the dead beat dads in the world! How sicking. Jon has really sunk to an all time low. First he humiliates his family and himself with low life women, now it is a tv show for dead beats. OMG!!!! Go home and help raise your children and stop getting your hoochies to do it for you. By the way, is that Lindsey Lohan's dad? OMG!!!!

This guy clearly wasn't ready to be a father. isn't he younger than her? It's hard taking care of NINE children, isn't it, Kate? Especially when one of them is such d-bag.

People you know loser ALWAYS ALWAYS follow losers. The sad part about all of this is when the kids get older he will have to explain why he is and was such a loser. You all have to say Kate ends up acting like a lady with class but not Jon.

I am pro Kate all the way. I hope she gets him where it will do the most damage--the wallet. What a tool. Will NOT watch any show with this idiot on it. Did think Kate was a raving bitch--but it couldn't have been easy raising 8 kids plus 1 infant.

I hope all you Kate haters are starting to understand why Kate treated Jon the way she did. Jon is immature and selfish. I was married to a man like him who I divorced when it became clear he was not interested in being a husband or a father to our then four year old daughter. My ex would rather spend money on going out with his friends drinking,buying expensive video games,playing golf,cycling,etc and letting me and/or my parents to foot the bill for things that were needed(rent,food,bills,). It is VERY difficult to be married to someone like my ex and like Jon. Grow up Jon,it is not about you anymore. Oh,and when it is YOUR time to be with your kids it means that it is YOUR time NOT THE BABYSITTER'S! It is time for TLC to tell Jon bye-bye.

I find Jon a hideous example of democratic, free-will society gone wrong. Let's follow the cycle of bad, stinking karma: Jon leaves family, feeling supported by 'fans' who see only that Kate was a strong woman organizing a family of eight young children rather than a strong woman getting the job done in spite of her wet noodle of a husband; the network encourages Jon's bachelor behavior, giving him contracts from those gaudy t-shirts to Divorced Dad's Club; and the hurt that those 8 kids will have to deal with, employing a cavalry of psychotherapists and psychiatrists. I can say the obvious: the children are the ones that lose here. But, darn it, why can't the people involved here DO THE RIGHT THING??? TLC needs to let this family heal by backing off. Ratings be damned. >>> It gets me in the heart that American fans elevated Jon's victim status to the point where he feels entirely frree to run amok with money that should be going to supporting the kids from education to healthcare to life enrichment activities. To see Jon take his kids money and run off like he even has the RIGHT to act like a carefree single man is erroneous. He is a father of a grand litter of children, and he has no right - NO RIGHT - to use this money in any way other than to support the kids and his basic, basic needs. >>> IT IS NOW OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS VIEWERS TO STOP WATCHING THE SHOW, STOP CLICKING ON INTERNET ARTICLES ABOUT JON, STOP BUYING MAGAZINES THAT FEATURE HIM, AND TO SUPPORT KATE, WHO IS THE ONLY ONE DEDICATED TO PUTTING THE CHILDRENS' WELFARE FIRST. No viewership --> bad ratings --> no money --> Jon loses his globetrotter lifestyle --> perhaps the kids get their dad back, divorced or not. Either way, we as viewers have the power to end this imbecile's barhopping lifestyle. He has eight children and a family that he left. WE CAN CREATE CHANGE HERE by VOTING WITH OUR CHOICE OF WHAT WE WILL PATRONIZE,PURCHASE, AND VIEW.

Jon is pathetic, as is Michael Lohan. However, there aren't many reality show for men, so it might get some ratings. There are worse reality shows for sure.

At the end of the day, we all know that, even though many are drawn to stories like this much like we're drawn to car wrecks, the only way to put a stop to this pathetic douchebaggery, is to CHANGE THE CHANNEL. I realize that many dollars are needed to raise 8 children, but with the backroom deals and sponsor provided merchandise and services together with the cash that has already been doled out to the Gosselin's, they should have plenty already.

Say it with me now...WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!
