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.

Kate, go on welfare like the rest of these people. That will make them happy. Roll over and die and let this pimp define who you are for the rest of your life. Give them what they want to justify their pathetic little lives.

Why can't the ones of you who continue to slam Jon open your eyes to how right he is about how Kate is addicted to the fame and money Hollywood and TV is bringing her and how she definitely cares alot more about that than she does her children. Don't you remember on the shows who did all the work and who was the most loving parent? It sure as hell wasn't Kate! She sat on her ass most of the time and ordered him around. Give the poor guy a break and realize that this bitch has a nursing lisence and could easily stay home and spend more time with her precious kids she really doesn't give two cents for.

Anthony List has a good track record has a criminal and liability attorney but not claim on his website that he is a divorce attorney. List is chewing gum on Nancy Grace show telling Nancy he would give her a copy of the divorce degree which the public knew had a confidentiality agreement. The next day Nancy announced List could not return to the show as promised the day before due to a confidentiality agreement. LOL. Jon broke the confidentiality agreement JON SIGNED by sending List, his new attorney, to the media telling the amount of child support he is SUPPOSE to pay before the attorney he filed the suit. The new attorney will soon learn that Jon Gosselin's middle is LIAR.

HELLO! Kate ALREADY signed on to do a new show! It was HER IDEA. She's now 'authored' two books, done book tours (away from the kids), staged a last-minute Easter egg hunt ON THE FRONT LAWN as a photo-op, and refused to let Jon take care of the kids while she was doing DWTS so they're stuck with nannies. And HE is the famewhore?! Please. He's an idiot for marrying her and thinking he's a celebrity, but has everyone gotten amnesia and forgotten what a controlling, manipulative btch she was during the whole JAKP8 show? Ugh!!!

They are both pathetic publicity whores. Sadly I suppose that makes me an accomplice by reading and responding to this tripe. Shame on me.

Maybe if "Jon" would get a job and pay his support she wouldn't have to work so much. Do you suppose that occurred to him?

wait until Jon meets another young gal from a money family who is impressed with his minor public notoriety and he'll soon decide that his 8 kids are not convenient to the lifestyle he really enjoys-like France/Aspen-wherever



say what you will about Kate-when she's away from the family for short periods of time, it's about earning money-not vacationing for extended times like Jon



she's not the one who stole from the family money-or took an apartment in New York or trashed her own place for publicity



she doesn't hang by the fence at home talking to the paparazzi, smoking, texting and posing while she is supposed to be caring for the kids



and she isn't the one who was shooting a loaded gun on the property when watching the kids



Jon's swinging single life didn't work out as well for him as he thought it would ( "Divorced Dads" reality show with Michael Lohan etc.) so now it looks like he's scrambling for a plan B in order to get by financially- a ridiculous/unfounded custody battle with his ex-wife who hasn't been near the fool that he has

Kate has no "REAL JOB" unless you really count constantly being on reality TV and making everyone sick who reads about her and watching that show. I wish she would just get voted off already. I also think $20,000 a month is a little to much for child support for 8 kids. Please Kate get off the fame wagon and be home with your children. And please show some love to them, instead of letting the nannies show the love and attention to them.



Jon deserves to be the custodial parent. Just in case any of your Kate supporters forgot, mmmmmmmmmm, did you forget who was there to take care of them when Kate was gone on her book signing tours, who was there to take care of them when she went on her talk show tours? It was Jon, Kate was only home long enough to wash her clothes then she was gone again.
Geee a real loving parent there.



As far as Jon quitting his job as a ITT tech, it was Kate that made him stay home and be with the kids because she didn't want to be with them. She wanted to be the fame chasing money making scant she is.



I am curious about 1 thing though, what would she be teaching parents during her new show that parents don't already know?



I mean I want to see her try and teach me something that I don't already know about my children.
i guarantee she could not handle my children. My kids are 18, 11, and 2. the 2 older ones are disabled. And from what I have seen of her on the show. When he kids would fight she would get irritated very fast. So I would give her maybe 30 minutes with my 2 older children. And that would be the end for her.
My children are mentally challenged, Bipolar disorder and ADHD, OCD, learning disabled, fine motor skilled disabled and there are a few other things as well.
And when my child has a bipolar outburst all hell breaks loose. It can last anywhere for 30 minutes to 2 hours sometimes. And I know she could not handle that.

Gee, the guy wasn't the least bit concerned about his kids when he was out having multiple affairs (some out of state!). He's just jealous because Kate can multi-task and is more popular than him. I don't like either of them much but his self-serving ways are much more obvious. Get a job, loser.
