No Filming The Kids!

Jon Gosselin is trying to block TLC from filming Kate Plus Eight after they dumped him from the show.

Jon has his manties in a bunch after TLC effectively dropped him from the show, renaming it Kate Plus Eight. Since Jon can't make any cash shilling his fam, neither can anyone else, he says!

Jon hung a sign on the gate of the family home in PA reading, verbatim: "Notice: No film crew or production staff from TLC is permitted on this property under penelty of trespass - Johnathon Gosselin"

Kate should be divorcing him for his undeveloped intellect as demonstrated by his spelling errors alone.

Jon's lawyer sent a missive to TLC stating, "Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason. In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."

The same lawyer later told Entertainment Tonight, "Jon realized his family was like a trainwreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show... because if he didn't the family would be in a mortal accident... the victims of a trainwreck."

Interesting that Jon didn't care about this trainwreck when he was still being paid to cause it.

TLC responded by calling Jon out -- in the nicest, most family-friendly way possible, of course. They said in a statement, "We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents."

While all this was going down, Jon was seen caring deeply about his children's welfare while partying in LA without them.

Everyone is slamming Jon for his actions. Kate was and is a control freak. She treated him like crap and he is finally standing up for himself. Maybe not always in the right way but I say good for him. Now if rolls were reversed and it was Kate that was doing all the stuff Jon is people would be saying good for her because she is a woman. But since it is Jon (the man) he is getting the shame shame. I don't see why he should be shamed for all his actions. Kate isn't the victim here. She is most of the cause. She has gotten a big head with show and can't seem to walk away. The more that happens the more she is the limelight doing TV talkshows, pushing her book, etc. She is the one that doesn't seem to care how all this is effecting the kids. She see STARS and just wants to keep moving with it. Where I see Jon seeing this isn't right for the kids and all this could be hurthing them and trying to do what is right yet he is getting the beating for it. I say good for Jon and keep fighting the fight for the kids. The house is broken and shouldn't be aired for all to see. The show ok when the house was happy and they were able to show they could handle a happy home but now all is broken and it should be for public to see. It is only hurting the kids in one way or another and I am happy to see at least ONE ADULT is seeing that.

He cheated on his wife when they had 8 kids together. She is mad obviously. I bet the shows name change was something Kate pushed for. The show is interesting only with Jon in it. I do not condone his behavior in any means. Being on a show is a blessing, especially to a middle class mom who has 8 children to take care of. Jon's recent actions are a backlash for the name change and lesser roll unfortunately he's now wrecking his kids future, withholding them from the life most of us only can dream about.
