Now that Kate has Jon out of her life, its about time to get him off her tv show! It a surprising yet hilarious announcement, Jon Gosselin has been dropped from “Jon and Kate Plus 8.” In other words, the womanizer has been fired from the show that made him a household name. The show will simply be renamed “Kate Plus 8.”
“Given Jon’s recent antics, there was no way the show could continue to portray him as a doting Dad, not while all this other crap was going on,” a source close to Jon Gosselin tells PEOPLE.
I guess TLC had enough of Jons’ bed hopping and media whoring! After an initial ratings spike last spring when rumors of marital problems came about, the ratings have since dropped steadily after the show started up again in August. Jon won’t be out completely – it is being said he will still continue to to appear on the show, just on a less than regular basis. The show will now focus on their children and Kates’ role as a single mother. Jon has been rumored to be shopping around a reality show about him being a divorced Dad, while Kate recently taped a pilot for a talk show co-starring Food Network star Paula Deen in addition to filling in for Elizabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” during her maternity leave. Jons made it clear in the media lately that he’s less than interested in continuing with the show. But could he be having a change of heart? Jon is currently trying to ‘slow down’ his life a little bit, going as far as to trying to halt the divorce proceedings for 90 days to ‘regain control over the future of our family.’
“I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated … I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon. Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family — not destroy it,” Jon tells In Touch Weekly. “…it will enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication. I hope that she will be as receptive and enthusiastic as I am to do what is best for our family.”
Yeah, right Jon. Since when do you care about being a father, as your actions as of late show otherwise? His divorce halting announcement just so happens to coincide with being dropped from the show. Don’t fall for it Kate. A lesser role on the show means less money for Jon. He is just trying to make nice to get his cut of the deal back. He’s worried about being separated from the money not the family.
