The Gosselin Birthday Party Showdown

10/7/2009 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Jon & Kate battle never ends -- and a war is brewing over tomorrow's birthday festivities for twins Mady and Cara.

Jon Gosselin: Click to watch
We just got a pissed Papa Gosselin in NYC, where he actually whipped out his BlackBerry and read a new e-mail from Kate aloud -- one saying she refuses to see him and wants to limit his time with the kids on Thursday to only two hours.

Jon says the duo had originally planned to have a party together, but according to the e-mail, Kate now believes "Due to recent events, it'll be too stressful."

Jon called her demands "ridiculous," adding "I can stay as long as I want ... and I will."

The message came through on his phone at 5:50 a.m. (see photo at radar) so he, as usual, was just playing to the cameras and didn't reveal the entire message. He is a disgusting piece of crap; most families that are in the midst of a divorce don't spend the kids b'days together so why does he think in light of everything he should be there to ruin it? The day will just end up being about poor Jon, piece of crap.

response if Jon EVER spoke to Kate in the manner she speaks to him? The other really sad thing and was the “ah ha” moment for everyone was Kate’s final comment in the last interview… when Jon said he was uncomfortable with the attention this has brought and he is not sure he wants to continue, Kate’s immediate response not missing a beat … “I am happy and I love this… bring on Season 5” WOW, that was the saddest thing I ever saw knew the marriage was over right then and there, the marriage is not a union it has become Kate Inc, and Jon and the kids are simply employees watch out you can all be fired just like her brother and Jodie, and Beth and family. And as a breath of fresh air, Table for 12, guess what -the parents LAUGH, and the kids are share responsibilities living life, in unmatched clothes, and dinner is a team effort of love and compassion that is a pleasure to watch not Kate the victim who can’t stand anyone in her kitchen, and the kids sit terrified at the dinner table wa

This is just enough. For 2 people that said they wanted a great life for their kids, they really are doing a great job screwing these beautiful kids up!!I have friends that are divorced and they put all the issues aside and have a day. Have the party, put your pride away for the day.. It isnt Kate or Jon's day its the girls.. If they really want to be normal, shut the heck up and act like it! These kids have a nice nest egg, they live in a beautiful home, so let life go on, let the kids be normal remove the camera's & let the children grow up like the rest of us!!

I think all this speculation is ridiculous. I believe they at least have a temporary visitation agreement on file. If it says they share time on holidays and birthdays with the kids then it is NOT up to Kate to change that schedule or offer Jon a different make-up time on the weekend. Those of you who watch the show should recall them BOTH saying that during the septuplets birthday. If Kate wants to change the arrangement, then do it the right way. . . through your attorneys and a judge if necessary NOT a IM on a cell phone saying the way it is!

Kate: Come on honeslty regardless of whatever happened between you and John should never affect what you do with the kids. Now a days lets face it it's hard to find a father that is willing to give time to his kids. go with it and stop making it worse. You will hurt your kids in the end and as they get older they will hold it against you.

Wow, go back to school, you need to learn how to spell and get up-dated with the rest of the world!! You must have NO LIFE to post as many posts as you have on here!

After this last week, including but not limited to that Insider promo with him waving a sheaf of papers and shouting, "Where's the $2,000,000.00, Kate?" did he think that it would be in the interests of the children, especially Cara and Mady, for the two of them to be in the same room at the same time? Even if no arguments broke out, I suspect that there wouldn't be an ice shortage at the birthday celebration. All anyone would have to do is put a container of water between the two of them. Even the portion of Kate's e-mail that he chose to share with his paparazzi friends is phrased as a polite request, not a demand or an order. Even he's said that, in the past, they've agreed to make adjustments to the custody schedule as the need arose. He didn't have to share a private e-mail with the press. If he thought it was a lousy idea, all he had to do was hit reply, type in the word "no", and hit send but that might have interfered with the time he spent shopping for birthday presents on camera with Entertainment Tonight.

He told Mary Hart (in the little bit I heard before I stopped being stunned and appalled at what he was saying and changed channels) that he extended the olive branch to Kate and she set it on fire. His statement about extending the olive branch to Kate can only be said to be true if that includes sticking it in her eye. Of course, in a few days, he may be classifying this as another mistake (like telling Chris Cuomo that he despised Kate) and telling everyone that since he is saying that it was a mistake and he apologizes that should wipe the slate clean.

I hope some family member or long-time friend has the guts to tell him that the best thing he can do for himself and the children is to just stop giving these interviews. Go back into counseling if he needs to vent without it appearing in the tabloids.

Why do so many people assume that the parent with the vagina is the better parent and always the victim? My understanding is that they alternate weeks with the kids, so they are parenting 50:50. What Jon does during his time away is irrelevant unless he's a drug dealer or a serial killer. They have both for years said that the kids don't watch TV and they screen them from the media. So, the fact that he's dating a 21yr old or is partying in NYC is irrelevant - because they wouldn't know it unless 'someone' told them. Hmmm. . .lets think. . . who would that be? Trust me, they don't care and they don't know what dating is. They just want their normal life, their normal birthday party and the prize in the happy meal.

OH Goody, they don't have to hire a clown for the party. Ass Clown Jon will provide all of the fun and antics....Those lucky little tykes:).

Oh please, does he really expect people to believe out of all the time Kate could have messaged him telling him this that she happened to message him while he is outside in front of paparazzi. She probably messaged him earlier in the day and then he made some kind of little set up to make it look like she was messaging himat this moment.

With that said Jon has a right to be at his kids party and stay as long as he wants, neither of them have any type of custody arrangement and the house equally belongs to both of them . There has been no court hearing or court papers that say one gets the kids on these days and the other gets the kids on those days and no this person gets the house or this person gets the house on these days and that person gets the house on those days so legally Jon can come and go as he pleases and see the kids when he pleases.

It seems that all these two care about are themselves and this is a good example of it. Who cares if Kate will get stressed seeing him? This is there daughters birthday, don't you think they want to spend it with both parents? I am seriously afraid what these two will be like in a custody battle and lets face it, that is going to happen and when it does it is going to be very messy and ugly.

Wow. Jon just seems to open his mouth to change feet. What a shame The Insider and ET didn't reveal the court papers filed showing the withdrawls.

Oopps strike some of my last comment. The video was skipping before so I did not hear they had a custody arrangement. But he did say that holidays and birthdays the custody changes to where they both get them the whole day together so kate by law and not just up and change it and how is it going to be too stressful for the kids due to recent events? They should not even know what is going on.

All there kids should know are that mommy and daddy are separated. Anything else the kids should not know

Kate's email was very fair and rational. She gave him 2 hours 4-6 & she gets 2 hours 6-bedtime. Given the tension that there would be between them, it is absolutley better to stay apart. There is no need for the kids to feel be in the middle of that. Then he complains about driving from New York to Pennsylvania only for 2 yours. BUMMER! Jon is the stupid father that decided to move hours from his kids. And what idiot shares this type of thing with some random paparazzi??? This guy is so off track it is embarassing.

Comprehension problems??    

Chrissy - YES, they have this agreement.

But in light of the recent events that the children ABSOLUTELY KNOW ABOUT - the tv show ending because of him...and possibly the money too, at least the older girls - it would be HORRIBLE for the girls to have to spend their birthday that way!

This is on a SCHOOL DAY with another one the next day. Which means they won't be home until 4pm. She is asking him to pick them up and spend until 6pm with them...then she will get from 6 to bedtime - which is most likely somewhere about 8pm. TOTALLY FAIR as far as I am concerned. make it even BETTER FOR THE GIRLS...she offered him 5 hours on SATURDAY from 12 - 5 in the afternoon. HER TIME!

How is this not fully acceptable to him...and any other reasonable person?

Should the girls be subjected to them...knowing how awful things have gotten? They have not seen him since he ENDED THE SHOW! I am going to guess they are going to be upset with him.

This ALSO gives him the opportunity to speak to them PRIVATELY! He can fill their heads with whatever he wants...who KNOWS what this mentally unstable man will do!

I am seriously worried about his mental well-being...and I think he needs to get some serious medical intervention. This is getting VERY DISTURBING - much more than I could ever have imagined!

He is FLAT OUT LYING over things that are being PROVEN WRONG!

That email was sent at 5:50 AM this morning...NOT when he saw the PAPS IN NYC!!! Though that is how he made it appear. He ALSO neglected to tell those paps anything about the 5 hours on SATURDAY!

He then told ET that Kate was trying to PREVENT HIM from seeing them at all that day. THEN, to add to that, he complained that it was 2 hours from NYC and he wouldn't drive there just for 2 hours. Who chose to live in NYC? I believe that was JON!

How can anyone continue to defend him anymore? I really can't comprehend it!
