Jon Gosselin -- Overpay for Play

10/21/2009 1:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin UPDATE: The MJ Show just posted the email exchange they had with Gosselin's rep. Click here to read it.

Jon Gosselin
sincerely believes his time and energy is worth somewhere around $12,000-per hour -- because that's how much he's demanding to appear on a Florida radio show.

TMZ spoke with the host of Tampa's MJ Morning Show who told us he contacted Gosselin's rep in the hopes of booking the reality star to guest co-host the show for one morning.

The radio show offered two first class round trip plane tickets, limo service and a "first class" hotel room -- but that wasn't enough to seal the deal.

Gosselin's rep requested an "appearance fee ... in the 10-12K range."

Team Gosselin justified the amount by saying, "[Jon's] name and appearance on your show will instantly draw press ... and will be a high point for the show." The rep also describes Gosselin as "quite funny, sharp witted and interesting."

The radio host tells us he "fell out of his chair" when he read the demand. Looks like Jon will have to go back to "Entertainment Something" to lock down that kind of money.

Come on people you are all forgetting that it takes two to tango.Kate is just as much at fault as Jon is. Maybe if she showed a little love and concideration towards Jon before they separated and even afer they had the baby's they might have been able to maintain there relationship. Instead she got sponsorship to go and get her tummy done and etc. She was definatly trying to get her looks back but certainly didn't see Jon in the picture after she did all the cosmetic stuff. We have all seen the shows, her demeaner towards Jon was always mean and rude towards him (on Camera), I would hate to see what she was like to him off camera.

I believe Jon is a good dad and loves his kids very much, it is time for both party's to sit down and settle this and get all the arrangments made so that all party's (including the kids most of all) can get on with there lives. (Kids will go nowhere unless they see that both Mommy and Daddy are working together).
