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.

Since some of the posters do not want the
children to be supported, why is it? Like
Jon, you seem to want the children to do without as does Jon. Why? Don't you like
children?

they are both big time losers... they both need to get real jobs and be a parent! kate gosslin is just like octomom except she pulled it off and octomom didn't. it sickens me to see that any television station would let this go on and on. i think the kids should sue tlc, abc, and their own STUPID parents. CAN'T WAIT TIL STEVE THE BODYGUARDS WIFE SUES KATE FOR SLEEPING WITH HER HUBBY!!! thats where kate belongs, on the skank list!! kate gosslin i hope you rot for what your putting your kids through. their getting older and soon they'll HATE you if they don't already!!!

I don't care if Kate works outside of the home. But because she is gone over a week at a time, Jon SHOULD be allowed to visit his children. Kate is not letting him near them even though she is gone over a week at a time. She isnt the only one that helped produce those kids.

If the kids are in private school, why don't she use her nursing degree and become the school's nurse. Most private schools give discounts to the staff. Do like the rest of us, cut cost where ever you can. Why does she not want Jon to take care of the kids when she is out-of-town. I watched the show, those kids loved being with their dad.

Did any one of you ever watch Jon and Kate plus 8 ? are you totally deaf and blind. I watched for years and can't imagine why Jon stayed with Kate as long as he did. If he's guilty of anything it's not standing up and being a man. She is so caustic, for goodness sake she berated him in so many ways on that show. Her comments were always started or followed by the statement "my kids" not our kids! She harped and harpe4de on him for not helping enough when he did have a job and was telling him he need to be at home more. are you blind to the fact that nobody does anything right but "Kate" She has no friends she has family but she has turned them away by her behavior. Can everyone be wrong and "poor Kate" be right? Joh was the sane one who said "I don't want my kids my family on TV anymore" not Kate. Has he been smart about his choices since then NO but then his first mistake was marrying and following Katie in everything. TLC hs a lot of to do with this whole mess. They have chosen to continue supporting Kate and helping her further her dearms of being a "star"....for goodness sake these two are not the only people in the world who have succed in produceing 8 childern artifically. Many have done it with out tv cameras with the help of friends and family and very generous donations which they were greatful for. This has turned in to much more than I started out to say but my last comment is everyone dispises "OCTO MOM" in my mind she and Kate are cut from the same cloth....

The key words here being; full custody and child support. Looks like Jon can't even support himself, and he was kicked out of the Penn. guest house. Gee, what happened to his bachelor pad? http://newsy1.wordpress.com

What a whiner. It was fine for him to be out and about having affairs with other women (out of state!) while Kate was home with the kids. He didn't seem to be such a concerned parent then, now was he? He's just mad that she's making money and can multi-task pretty much w/the public's consent. His popularity is in the toilet. boo hoo
