Jon & Kate Plus 8 - Part Deux?

4/12/2010 4:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Gosselin is "definitely open" to co-starring with ex-wife Kate Gosselin on a new TV project -- with one big string attached ... TMZ has learned.

Jon's lawyer, former assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, tells TMZ "under the right circumstances" Jon would do a show with Kate, but "the contract would have to be tighter."  He did not elaborate, but we're guessing it has something to do with the way TLC cleaned Jon's clock in court.

List did not say what type of show he'd like to do, but said having Jon and Kate around the kids more would be a definite plus.

List says Jon would "love to settle" the latest legal dispute he ignited. TMZ broke the story that Jon filed legal papers asking for primary custody and child support.  But Jon will press on with the case, unless Kate gives up her "global commitments."  According to List, Jon feels Kate can't have it both ways -- being both a star and an attentive parent.

List says he and Jon both feel Kate is "addicted to the paparazzi." He says even if Kate is booted from "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday, he won't drop his custody case because Kate is "caught up in the glamour of Hollywood" and will take other jobs. 

Now if Kate brings Jon along for the Hollywood tour, well apparently that's a whole other Oprah.

Maybe Jon can take the kids to local county fairs this summer. They can sing and play kazoos or something. Then Kate can come on, dance a little and put down Jon. I would pay a pretty penny to see that. Two pretty pennies would be too much.

#1 , That`s Blackmail! Its ok to do a show as long as I do it with you. (Show me the money!)
Jon wants the kids, because he wants child support, and he does`nt want to pay for child support.
I hope there is some way, Kate can use this in court against Jon.
He thinks he can have it both ways.

TLC already blackmailed Jon.
Kate gets paid 100k a month by TLC only if Jon doesn't do any media work. That's why Jon isn't on TV. TLC has a gag order and they pay him 5K a month to keep his mouth shut.



Jon is the better parent. It's all in the eyes of the children when the loving parent picks them up from the bus stop.

This is simple. If Kate is going to make money of the kids then Jon should get half. I'm not a supporter of either of these tired "parents" but I just find the whole situation a tad unfair. It's clear that Kate is an absentee parent as much as she says she's not. If she doesn't want to raise her children then Jon should be awarded custody.

Did anyone ever tell John "He is a douchbag"!
This man wants what he can't have now!
Kate is trying to feed her kids
and keep them in the lifestyle they have learned
to love! What are you doing? If you were to win
custody, you would take the kids and expect Kate
take care of you and the kids!! Get a JOB John!

That is because Jon cannot go out and talk to press without consent from TLC in his settlement of the lawsuit with TLC.
When you badmouth the boss they tend to get ticked off. Biting the hand that feeds you is never a good idea. Especially if you have no other JOB yet.



Then again never burn a bridge-you may need to cross it again someday.
