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're right, Kate wouldn't have been asked to do DWTS unless she had those kids AND been on a reality show. But she was and jumped at it FOR THE MONEY. She pays the house payment, utilities, buys groceries, clothes for the children, pays the children's PRIVATE TUITION and yes, spends some on herself. Don't most of you do that?



Kate gets her hair and nails done? So what? How many of you do that? And.....probably make a lot less than she does. She's gone three days from the kids. How many "waking" hours is that? And for a few weeks. That is much less time away than a 40 hour job would take her.

Totally amazed at the UNINFORMED people who post and vote and say Jon craves more attention than Twisted Kate. Anyone who has kept up or read ANYTHING knows what a lying, manipulative, self-promoting, self-involved, sanctimonious, narcissistic hypocrite Kate is.

JLS for your information i am not a male who just got out of a terrible marriage. I am female who is happily married and was only making a comment about someone else. And in my book being a reality start hound is not a real job.



I have had enough of this fame whore Kate and cant stand her. I just am very tired of reading and listening to show that are dogging out only Jon on this whole issue.



Grow up

First of all, this couple is a huge snoozefest. Everything in print is to rev up the excitement for whatever it is they are promoting. If Jon really was fighting for the kids, why wouldn't she call his bluff and let him have them? Then see how fast he changes his mind and stops trying to interfere with her new show. Let's see where he will live and how he will support them and care for them...that would be fun.

A FOOL AND THEIR MONEY ARE SOON PARTED!!!! JON SCREWED HIMSELF WHEN HE STOPPED THEIR REALITY SHOW. DID JON REALLY THINK IN THIS ECONOMY HE WAS GONNA BE ABLE TO GET A 9-5 JOB THAT WOULD BE ABLE TO KEEP HIS CHILDREN AS WELL AS HIMSELF LIVING THE LAVISH LIFESTYLE THEIR FAMILY HAD BECOME ACCUSTOMED TOO. KATE IS DOING WHAT SHE NEEDS TO KEEP THE ROOF OVER HER CHILDRENS HEADS AND FOOD IN THEIR MOUTHS. THE WAY HE ACTS CARRYING ON WITH THESE YOUNG GIRLS, SMOKING, DRINKING, ONLY GOES TO SHOW YOU WHY KATE WAS SUCH A B##%$% TO HIM ON THE SHOW HE'S OBVIOUSLY IMMATURE AND HAS ALOT OF GROWING UP TO DO. WHEN HIS 5 MINUTES OF FAME ARE UP HE'S GONNA END UP ON A NEW REALITY SHOW CALLED "PENNILESS, HOMELESS, AND FATHER OF EIGHT" !!!!!!!

I think TLC should allow Jon Gosselin to get work.They have tied his hands.How do they expect him to support his kids?He was not allowed to do shows while Kate was allowed to do T. V. shows, go on book tours, get hair extensions and so many perks too numerous to list here.I think it's about time that Kate realizes that he is her childrens Father,Those kids need him and he should have equal custody .She is the main reason that their marriage failed.She was nasty to him and things had to be her way.If she had any decency she would try to work things out with Jon.They both made mistakes, but kate got all the breaks.Now Jon should get a break!1!

oh hey jon, rememeber when you got jon&kate plus 8 cancelled cause "you didn't want your children being filmed"? now, all of a sudden cause kate is getting her own show, he is ok with them being filmed as long as hes there. this is all about money and him not wanting to pay for his kids. im not kates biggest fan, but jon is actually making her look good. and all that BS about her being an "absentee parent" while he was living with his gf in utah and was nowhere near his kids? ugh he is such a douchebag.

Timmsa, You sound like a bitter, jealous, hateful witch. For her to have that kind of major effect on you is almost scary. 'Real job' or not, she is supporting her children. Sounds like your income is from the state. Green turns you hateful. Get over your jealousy and be thankful you can sit on your couch eating ho hos while the government takes care of you. No wonder your kids bipolar.
