Kate Gosselin -- Jon Only Cares About Jon

10/1/2009 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TLC isn't the only one calling Jon Gosselin "opportunistic" -- now his estranged wife is joining in on the fun.

Jon & Kate

Kate just released the following statement:

"It appears that Jon's priority is Jon and his interests ... I'm saddened and confused by Jon's public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children."

As TMZ previously reported, production has been suspended on "Kate Plus 8" while Jon and the network hash out a deal.

Now he cares about his children when TLC banned him from the show. Hmmmmm so weird. He is a stupid, idiot, SOB. He cares about himself and no one else. You are a F***G SOB. Mr. Trump said "YOU ARE FIRE"; it was about time TLC took him out of the show. KATE plus 8, GOOD for KATE. GO KATE, GO KATE. I admire you, not matter what the news said I admire you.

Well Kate should have thought twice before setting out on her successful effort to convince the network to dump Jon and make it all about her and the kids. When you choose to go to war, there are no winners, only survivors.

I, for one, am glad the show was brought to a hault. Good parents would have ended the program a LONG time ago. But money hungry parents like the Gosselin's would keep it going. TLC - END THE SHOW....for the children's sake....find other means to get ratings!

I used to watch the show prior to all of their problems coming out- since then I have not watched one single episode nor will I ever again. I feel too bad for the kids.

There is no such thing as reality tv    

These could be trying to trump up publicity for the show. Either way, they have very poor advisors or "people" surrounding them.

I think for the sake of the kids, it is time to retire this show. It is a circus!

I kinda feel bad for the guy even though he had it coming. They are essentially cutting him out of his own life. He sold his soul to the Devil!

I saw nothing on the any of the shows I've seen that displayed Jon in any bad light. He seemed like a nice guy and good dad.

But I saw plenty in the show where Kate was a bitch and nag.

I'm sorry...why can't a single guy (once you separate and file for divorce - you're single) be allowed to date and see other people. If was obvious she displayed no love or respect for him and everyone deserves that.

If women would understand that men value RESPECT above anything else, there would be a lot happier marriages.

Kate you are lying.Jon HAS said in the past that the show is annoying the kids ( but he has too said the show is beneficial).

Just give it up. all the kids are in school. Each of you should get a job. The $ that is left invest it wisely so that way you will still be able to pay your property taxes, electric bill, water bill, etc.

LET'S ALL EMAIL TLC AND TELL THEM IF THEY DON'T CANCEL THE SHOW THAT WE WILL NOT WATCH THEIR NETWORK OR BUY FROM THEIR SPONSORS! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! PUT AN END TO THIS B.S.

Of course he is looking after his own interests, Kate. Who else is going to? You? No. TLC? No. They are both sad idiots blinded by fame and money. Now they are being consumed by it. It is the old "be careful what you wish for" adage come to life.

Kates's just as opportunistic as Jon. With as much time as she spends on her PR events, book signings, etc. she can go out and get a 'real' job like other mothers. At some point the TV show will get cancelled, so why not sooner rather than later? Find some real news to report on.

1st thing Jon needs to shut his mouth and so does she. 2nd If the show quits then Jon has to get a real job to pay for child support and for his sake it better be a good one because child support could be $1600 or more a month. But as I see it coming he will be a worthless father and not pay for anything. They both want to cash in thier kids and we let them do it, by watching their show.

OK, maybe John has exhibited some questionable behavior over the past few months that raises eyebrows, I for one am applauding this latest move (and yes, I’m a married and responsible father of three wonderful children). Kate truly is the opportunistic one, and has exploited fame at every corner. Adding insult to injury is the way that she treated John while married. Although maybe he is overcompensating a bit, his actions are understandable. If he plays his cards right, he should be able to parlay this into a few million dollars from the network in exchange for backing off. And he pisses Kate off at the same time, which is only icing on the cake for how she’s treated him throughout the years. Public sentiment has already swung in Kate’s favor, so he probably figures he’s got nothing to lose at this point, because women already loathe him. But frankly, we underestimate just how effective this move could be to secure his financial future. And it sure is fun to watch the continuing saga. Downtrodden men of the world unite! Go John!!!
