I am soooooo over all the Gosselin drama. The only ones I care about are the precious children who neither picked their dumb ass parents nor asked to be exploited on TV. Both Jon & Kate should be ashamed, get their affairs in order and stay off the public radar, for the sake of their children. Not sure either of them have the balls to do what's right since they are both mis-guided and should apologize to their kids for being such mutual jerks. Sadly, they both have their share of problems but it is their 8 kids who will pay the ultimate price. Shame on you Kate! Shame, even more, on you, Jon! More selfish, narcissistic people I am not sure are out there seeking fame & more than that - fortune.

"As far as I'm concerned, no matter what his reasons if Jon is trying to get the kids off of TV, then he's the better parent. (Of course, anybody who has actually watched the show can see that too. His kids love and adore him...and he took better care of them than Kate or 99.9% of the fathers out there.) It amazes me that anybody would support Kate and TLC whose only goal is to exploit those kids--who've never had a choice in the matter.

Please explain to me; I am confused. How does emptying the bank account from which Kate pays the household bills help the children? It seems to me that now, as a result, Kate will be scrambling to pay the household bills. Since the kids live in the house, this is bound to affect them, both materially and mentally. Is that the action of a concerned father? I think not.

Oh, please, Kate has money stashed. She would never allow Jon to have control over or access to her real finances.

Jon needed that money so he could buy more of those ugly Gucci clown shoes.

Who said that the money was to pay household bills? Kates scheming ass has money put away that he does not know anything about. She probably put this story out. I'm sick of hearing about the two of them. This is not going to end until one of them kills the other

You guys are ripping him to threads when you don't even know for sure it' true. Just a few days ago TMZ claimed Khloe got a $4,500 hair style and found out later it's completely untrue. Don't jump to conclusions just because the almighty TMZ says it's so. They probably got this story from a friend that knows a person that works with a person who knows his neighbor!

It's legal people. Joint accounts, unless requiring the signatures of all parties prior to withdrawals are fair game. I used to work in banking, I ALWAYS pulled the woman aside and told them to set up their own account. You see it everyday, couple has a joint account, and the husband has his own on the side. When the drama starts, he usually, via Internet or telephone banking transfers all of the money out of the account. The female is the fool showing up the next business day standing in line trying to access the funds. He was kind enough to leave her $1000. Most guys don't.

Jon is such a fool. He's saying that he wants to be friends with Kate again, but then on the other hand he goes and drains this account. Kate is all the better off with out this moron. He is as childish as they come. He doesn't like that Kate is getting all the good tv offers and he is getting the shaft. Jon is a total tool and proves it every time he opens his mouth.

Don't believe anything TMZ reports.It's usually second hand and when they retract the story the damage has already been done. If by chance it is true, you can bet Kate has stashed a few hundred thousand away too. She loves those designer clothes and will kill to keep money to buy them them. When will the paps start follow her around to see what she get's up to.
See WWW.THEDAILYBEAST.COM "10 TOP ANGRY MOMENTS" PAGE 1 see some of Kate's abusive behavior. Type in "search" Kate Gosselin. Quite mild to what has been recorded on TLC.

TEAM JON.

Really shows no class for a gentleman. Cant believe these 2 confessed they loved one another. Too bad she didnt get to the accounts first. Thats usually the first thing one or the other will do is get a hold of the cash.

Who honestly cares Jon and Kate both lost their minds when they became famous with the reality show. Money was being thrown at them and they took the bait. Obviously before the show Jon was making anoth money to take care of Kate and the kids. Jon seems to have a problem with the fact that he feels like he missed out on his 20's by marrying Kate and having 8 kids. Now, he wants to live it up. He's all over the television talking about how bad a wife she was. Jon wanted his freedom he took some money and ran to go hang out with far as I'm concerned "teanaged girls". No, one is really going to want either one of them truly they have 8 kids and everyone knows their personal business. Not, to mention Jon is getting FAT and balding at a rapid rate. Maybe after the divorce Jon should be the new BACHELOR. LOL! I hear ABC calling (ring, ring).
