Judge to Jon & Kate -- Settle this Mess!

10/13/2009 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Jon and Kate Gosselin divorce clearly has had it up to here ... he didn't rule on any of the epic conflicts but ordered Jon and Kate to settle up and work it out with the arbitrator. The judge said he'll be down with anything the arbitrator decides ... with one provision -- it has to be in the best interests of the children.

The judge said any monies taken improperly from the joint account should be returned, but he didn't get specific. He also admonished Jon and Kate to keep things "private" and "amicable." Good luck with that.

Before the short open hearing, lawyers met with the judge in chambers for about an hour but no settlement was reached.

They're due back in court on October 26.

They both should go back to their regular jobs(she is a nurse, he an IT, )SHOULS MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO SUPPORT THE CHILDREN.Lots of people support their family on alot less. I bet, the bigger and better houses were not Jons Idea.Ah Kate no more Nip &Tuck for you, when you have to pay for it on your Nurses Salary.An an other word of advise, not smart to pay for 2mortages, should sell the first one first.Well maybe you have to move back to reality and to your old house when all is said and done.

They both took money. Kate is mad, because Jon had stopped TLC from filming the children. There is no way that Kate can be in control over the money and not know what has been taking out of that account. If Jon took $100,000 on August 10, 2009. Why did Kate wait to say something about it on October 2, 2009? If he took all the money she said he took in September, why did she wait to say something on October 2, 2009?

It's funny how Kate can't pay her bills in October, but was able to pay for them in August and September. She's lying.

I hope the judge order her to go work at McDonalds.

They both need to grow up. They are both immature. Kate is no better than Jon. She wants people to believe that.

Her secret is coming out.

I've read last night that Steve and his wife is divorced and that they filed for a divorce in 2008 and it was final in April 2009. I was wondering why a married man that's with his wife wasn't wearing his wedding ring.

Steve never denied the rumors about him and Kate. Only Kate and his wife did.

Funny, how I have never read anywhere, where Kate denied her ex-fiance's claim that she cheated on him and that's why they never gotten married.

I bet Jon won't be able to NOT talk about what he wore (name of designer). Being a celebrity and all. Maybe he was looking around for the red carpet when they approached the court house.

You have to love a useless judge. Maybe he should take some time off and morn his wife instead of wasting everyone's time with his useless dribble.

oh blow it out your azz RAE! kate is a total B*TCH and deserves to be alone, it must be tough being with the kids now without anyone to boss around and do everything with the kids so you don't have to. I don't get it, we've all seen the show, she was barely interactive and hands on with those kids. what's all this support for her for? is it because she's the "mother"(i use that term loosely)? a woman? a white woman?
