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."

Maybe if Kate had treated Jon like a human being should be treated she would not find herself in this predicament. I believe animals are treated much nicer than how Kate treated Jon. The children are the most important right now, but I do believe Jon is finally taking a stand. Maybe he should have done that a long time ago, and possibly they could have worked things out. Kate needs to lighten up and treat other people like human beings and not animals.

Comprehension problems??    

Right Too Much...I post for the very first time today on this site. And I post LOGIC and it's "obsessive" and "creepy". Right...that's always the best defense of facts and logic! Not "too much"...it's "too funny!"

This is unfolding like most of us has been saying. These 2 media whores could care less about their children.....the love the attention and friction. I am the 42 year old daughter of celebrity parents...i was a tennis ball, my Parents used my Brother & I in their ugly divorce....and we are screwed up because of it. Now they are both old has beens and none of their kids want anything to do with them.....nobody ever thinks about the kids it's always about ratings in the world of television.

Kate Gosselin's sis-in-law says show is fake, stop watching!

Kate Gosselin's sister-in-law Julie Gosselin writes on her blog that everything that happens on "Jon and Kate Plus 8" is totally fake and that we should all STOP watching!

She even lists some fake takes in the show's history:

"When the show first started, Kate made a wishlist of things that she wanted, and that became the theme of each episode – the carpet, twins' room, bunk beds, cow, hair plugs, teeth whitening, trips, etc. EVERYTHING that you see them do or buy is completely paid for out of the budget for the show or traded for free advertising. Kate went on and on about saving up for special days, you saw her paying for things, she talked about budgeting, etc. It is all for the appearance that they are a struggling family with 8 children. They needed to be relatable. They didn't pay for any of it.

"The episodes are also staged. Here's how it works…there is a staff of people reading these blogs and they base the shows around what people are talking about. I haven't watched many episodes, but I do know some of the behind the scenes events.

Keep reading for the behind-the-scenes scoop.


"The Christmas episode from 2007. Producers told Kate that the viewers wanted to see her show appreciation to their helpers. They told her what the episode was going to be. I think they baked cookies and then went caroling (of course this was probably one of their many 'traditions" – those are all fake too). Kate threw a fit. She didn't want to do it, but she did … because they were trying to pacify the viewers."

Kids can be trained like seals:

"Don't believe everything you see. The children are also being prompted to say or do certain things. They signed their lives away to TLC and they will continue to spin the show to keep the viewer's interest. I don't believe this show will go away until the viewers decide that they don't want to be played anymore."

The cookbook promo:

"Of course, you've all figured out that they are showing Kate cook/bake to promote her upcoming cookbook. The show has now turned into a show about a family with a reality show – move to a mansion, cross-over shows, book tour, talk shows…"

Season finale:

"Please don't watch on Monday. You're not going to learn anything new by watching. They will only show what they think people want to see and it isn't real anyway. They will probably drag this out (J&K's 'relationship') for the entire season. They just string the viewers along hoping that they will come back for more."

Jon just keeps hitting new levels of douche-bag. He needs to go to Tool Academy.

I smell a restrainig order. If Kate wee smart she'd be working on that right now. This douche wouldn't come near me ever again. There is seriously something wrong with this guy. He needs to man up and act like a parent and stop whining to anyone who will listen. Are you kidding me? Those poor kids. They must be so ashamed of that guy! I would be.

Well looks like Jon just got caught in his own lie...he said earlier that this money was withdrawn over a period of time since March of this year...but of course per the bank statements it since August...what a liar and a attention whore...i hope he does go to jail...

Isn't it time the show stopped and Kate stays home and acts like a mother? Then Jon can get a regular job like other Dads. They produced all these children, now it's time to stop using them to make money and start having the parents support them.

Grow up Jon. Stop talking about your personal life in public. Get the divorce, and move on. You're a bitter, cynical jerk and you're only hurting your kids. Act like a grown up and get a life.
