On last night's Larry King Live, Jon Gosselin discussed his decision to halt production of Kate Plus 8. Essentially—after failed contract negotiations—he's taking his balls and going home. (Or resting them on some babysitter's chin somewhere.)
With his slimy lawyer in tow, Jon went on TV to publicize his crusade to stop the publicity! Even though he was filming for TLC as recently as last Friday, Jon said that he had an "epiphany" that he no longer wanted his family to be on TV, which conveniently came right after TLC dropped his name from the show, but refused to release him from his exclusive contract with them. (Making it impossible for him to get "Divorced Dads Club" off the ground, a project he'd been putting together with Michael Lohan and possibly Kevin Federline.)
Just last month, Jon refuted tabloid claims that the show was harmful to his children.
Even though he denies that this whole thing just boils down to contract negotiations, Jon does admit that he doesn't get along with the TLC brass, saying that they, at one point, put him on "house arrest." It's obvious that TLC has a particular disdain for Gosselin; they issued a rather scathing statement, something that networks pretty much never do.
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. - Laurie Goldberg, Senior VP, TLC
He also did a real shit job at denying affairs with any other women other than Hailey Glassman. However, he has issued an apology to his ex-wife…via an appearance on Entertainment Tonight, airing tonight.
