Jon & Kate gag order

Jon and Kate are doing what do you do when you're going through a high profile divorce and you are stars of your own reality show. Jon and Kate are putting a lid on it and keeping quiet.

Jon & Kate gag orderIn a surprising move, Jon and Kate Gosselin have decided to keep their matters private at the moment and no longer talk to the press. The estranged couple has decided to live their lives separately and privately for a while beyond the confines of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

Their statement reads, "During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation."

Since they mention their goal is to do the very best for their eight children, in order to accomplish that goal they'll be doing things in private and not responding to speculation or reports about their lives. Since their show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 won't air new episodes until August, this will hopefully give them some breathing room to be out of the tabloids for at least a few weeks.

It will be interesting to see how this impacts their show and other ventures. For instance, Kate's new cookbook, Love Is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories, has been shelved for a while. Considering the Gosselins have marketed themselves based on love and family cohesiveness, it would be a difficult sell at the moment.

Their divorce was filed only a week ago so time will tell how the family heals and moves forward.
