Does this mean Kate and TLC will be back to exploiting the Gosselin 8? Haven't these children been exploited enough? Let them find out what a normal life is all about for once, no cameras or WORKING CHILDHOOD TO MAKE MOMMY RICH OR FAMOUS!
PS... Did Jon agree to mind the children again while Kate promotes her new book for 2 years around the country with her bodyguard, Steve Neild? At least now, she won't have to hide her fine dining and partying.

This family was filmed going down hill for a long time. Kate was an abusive bully and if he treated her the same all hell would have broke loose. He whored himself around town probably to show Kate she can't rule him anymore.....WRONG...just as she didn't care how her actions affected their children, he also didn't care how his actions affected their children. He should have stopped production before they got their mansion and demanded they go to counseling, and if she refused, go without her. That I think would have earned him more respect. TLC wouldn't have liked it though, because more drama = higher ratings. Except for me, I stopped watching the show because I couldn't take Kate anymore. She could learn from 12 Around the Table and 19 kids and counting.I think both Jon and Kate should be ashamed. Hopefully they go to counseling now, for their children's sake,see a mediator and take care of what the most important business of all is...Their children.

Shame on TLC. This jack ass basically accused this network of abusing his children due to the conditions they were being placed under during the tapings of Jon and Kate Plus 8 and the minutes Jon says he will allow TLC to resume taping his kids if they back off TLC goes for it. If someone had eluded to the fact that I was abusing their kid/kids you had better believe I would have seen that suit all the way through and TLC should not have backed off on this. Jon is the only one responsible for his reputation being ruined. His actions and his actions alone did that not TLC. Jon is a spoiled brat. Never was that more clear then when he was when he was booted from the show, due to his childish/whorish behavior,and as if to say 'if I can't have my way I'll show you' he accused TLC of wrong doing when it came to the children and pulled them from the show. But instead of TLC standing up to this idiot the minute Jon basically says 'if you drop the suit you can tape the kids again' TLC settles. Is TLC that desperate? If someone has accused me of what he accused TLC of I would have said 'Sorry Jon you made your bed now lie in it' and I would have continued with the suit even if I knew he would never be able to pay a dime of it. I am disappointed in TLC.

Well I'm glad there was a settlement, but I certainly hope Jon didn't buckle under and allow the kids to be filmed. If he did he's a royal smuck.
I still think TLC sucks
