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.

I just don't understand why you all are bashing on Jon, it just makes no sense. He is not the one who is always searching for the next freebie, or the next one who is wanting Hollywood fame and lights.
One of Kate's new show is to show her traveling around the country which means more time away from her children. Wow that is really no surprise about her. She doesn't really love her children as much as she says she does. She is only using those kids to game the fame and limelight that she really wants.
Once again you all are making Jon out to be the bad guy here and he is not just a bad guy. He is only looking out for his children.



Kate never spends any time with her children. She has I don't know how many nannies raising her children. When her new show starts, once again she will have those nannies with her children and she will not be there, where she needs to be.




Just remember it takes 2 to tango, Jon is not the only one who destroyed this marriage. Yes he did get caught up the freedom from Kate and her controlling ways, but he has finally settled down.



you all need to really take a step back and really look at Kate, and really see what she is all about. She is so money hungry and wants nothing but the $$$ and the fame, and the B.S. that comes with it.
Those kids are the ones that are going to suffer in the end. And those kids once fully grown, will be on TV as well but there will be a new show called "KIDS OF REALITY TV STUPID PARENTS WHO ONLY WANTED FAME AND FORTUNE AND DIDN'T CARE ABOUT ME". Or "MY MOMMY THOUGHT OF ME AS JUST A MEAL TICKET AND THERE IS A PRICE OF MY HEAD". These kids are being traumatized by Kate.

I think Children's Services should investigate and remove the children from BOTH Kate and Jon. Neither of them are fit, IMHO

These two talentless nobodies are a very sad indication of what our society has become. They both need to go away, stat. And they can take with them the Snookis and Speidies of the world, too.

I think the only one addicted to the limelight was Jon. He's the one who abandoned his family to trapes around IN THE OPEN with his sluts. He's a big baby he's all for the attention as long as it makes him look good as soon as people think he's a loser he starts these legal battles.

Did I read that the John team thinks Kate is addicted to the paps?
I never read about her doing outlandish things to get that attention. I think she is just trying to support her family. Is John going to support them so she can be a stay at home mom? If she went back to working as a nurse she would probably see less of them, couldn't afford child care and the things they need. Whatever people think of her she is hustling to provide for her family. Side note: To any woman out there, imagine having 8 young children, being married to the idiot John is, and not feeling overwhelmed, angry and having the urge to verbally rip his head occaisionally. His only relationship hope is to hook up with a Saint.

What a horrible little man. His lawyer is a scum bag too. Are they kidding. Can a judge throw this suit out and fine Jon and his lawyer for even filing it? He is attacking her for working and threatening her if she pursues further employment. What the heck was going on in that house before his affairs hit the fan? I believe there was darn good reason for Kate's behavior during that show. He had to have been hell to live with if this convoluted thinking is the norm.

When HateKate does her new show traveling around, her 3 nanny's will be raising her kids. Haven't we all seen how celebrity kids turned out with absentee celeb parents had nanny's raising the kids? I'll bet she doesn't do housework, cook, and spends very little time with her kids. Now she will spend less time roaming the country without them, she hasn't shown that she has any experience at giving good advice on parenting, she has nanny's raising her kids, no doubt getting them ready for school, all the things a mother does. She dances like a manniqin(sp?)

Ironic that Jon says Kate is "addicted to the paparazzi." He was the glory hound, he was the one staging fake break ins for publicity.



Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Kate fan, but Jon is just a low life money digging glory hound scum.

Jon doesn't want a regular job. He wants to earn a living by being a celebrity.
