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.

You CAN'T claim Kate is addicted to paparazzi, then try and get on HER show. You're just proving you're more childish than your children. Working to support your children doesn't make you an absentee parent. It makes you a RESPONSIBLE parent. You should try the work thing sometime. It'll be good for you.

If you like Kate Gosselin, then you are most likely an abusive white person.

I do not know which one of these two are the biggest loser and more obsessed with being a wannabe celeb.

They both have college educations and need to get it threw there thick skulls there 15 minutes is up...I do not want to hear any of Kates BS crying of "oh I can not support 8 kids on a nurse salary and blah blah blah". There are people out there with the same amount of kids she has and more and are doing just fine, look at the Duggars. They had like 15 kids before they got there show and were doing just fine.

My moms cousin is a single mom to 7 kids and has custody of her niece so that is 8 kids and she works as a RN and she is totally fine and yes she is single. Not only is Kate single and has a degree in nursing but she also gets like $20,000 from Jon a month. $20,000 alone is enough to support her kids her problem is that she does not want to give that big house that she can not afford up, the fact is she is going to end up losing it so she needs to sell it before losing it and having it foreclosed on because if it is foreclosed on I am sure she will probably end up owing money on it.

Jon has a mental problem, I would get a restraining order against him. He has done nothing but harrass her, he even said he hated her when they first broke up. Nothing good has come from this man except the kids.

What ridiculousness! Jon was looking at realestate on the West Coast less than one year ago. Jon has pap friends. Jon clearly LOVES the paparazzi attention; six months ago he was everywhere, including TV gossip shows. I hope that Kate refuses to settle. Take it to a judge Kate! Why would TLC ever want to work with lame fish Jon again? What a slug.

jealous of kate    

hey chrissy, jon is broke, he is NOT paying that 20K. just because a judge orders it, does not mean that someone pays it. don't you read? how many women DON"T get the child support they have been ordered to receive. Besides, Kate has a chance to make big money RIGHT NOW. She would be stupid not to take it. Later, and she has said she is keeping up her nursing license, when this all dies down and there are no shows, she can go back to nursing. With nursing though, she actually will be away from the kids more. She was an ICU nurse, working over a 12 shift on saturdays. Figure full time, that is 3 shifts, with a 4th shift once a month, having to be at work at 6, 6:30, home at 7:30 at night, exhausted. So, she would be gone before the kids were up, (babysitters) and home after dinner (babysitters) and see them for a few minutes before they go to bed. This, dancing with the stars, in 2 weeks, she was able to earn over 2 years of a nursing salary and she is on the west coast 2 out of 7 days. Kate is a miser. She has been stashing money away, away for college, away from jon. She knows what she is doing. Reasonable SANE people would chose the higher paying job that is offered, for their children's sake, as long as they are not doing anything illegal. I am a nurse, and I would do what she is doing in a new york minute, NOT FOR THE FAME SAKE, but for the financial reasons. No one here is in her shoes, a single mother, with a leach douche hypocrite husband, not knowing if she is going have to downgrade their housing, so until someone here can say THEY are in the same circumstances and ENJOY living paycheck to paycheck, don't yell at her.

I just read where someone else said that Jon has a mental problem and has been harassing Kate, and I agree. There's something wrong with him, he isn't acting like a normal, ration person. The divorce is over and done, and he is trying to replay it, recast it. However, he lost it, both from his own horrible behavior and that of his incompetent attorney, Heller. As for custody of the kids, that's a laugh - how do you award custody to someone with no known address? Or who lives with his girlfriend of the month until he's kicked out. He seriously thinks that's healthy for his kids? And that a judge will think so? The man is a douche. And is, no doubt, now spending his father's money in order to run this latest scam. Spend the help on a counselor, instead, Jon. And rehab. You seriously need it.

Is he for real??? It's ok for Kate to be involved with Hollywood if he's involved? Otherwise, it's not kosher? Is he joking??? And does the idiot actually think that TLC or Kate (or anyone else in the universe for that matter) would ever work with him again? Goodbye lawsuit, after that idiotic statement (which Jon is always making anyway.) Jon Gosselin is ONLY interested in money and Kate seems more interested in being a star than her children. Why did either of them have those children? I don't get it.

I wish these idiots would just go away. I used to like watching's crap tv now..has been for a few yrs.

It doesnt matter what Kate does, Jon will try to hone in on her. All the people saying she has a nurses degree and should go back to that, ask yourself if you were in her shoes would you? No you wouldn't, you would make as much money as possible until no more offers were coming in, then use that degree. Furthermore with her luck, if she went back into nursing he would probably file again saying she wasnt home enough (nurses work weird hours). Its a no win situation. I hope the judge laughs at Jon and Kate files on him for back child support if he is not paying it. Go Kate... make as much money as you can.
