Kate Gosselin has to be over the moon about last night's Couples Therapy. Has there ever been schadenfreude so sweet as to watch your ex-husband get caught masturbating on television and then ripped a new asshole about it by Jodie Foster?
It's almost impossible to imagine now, but when the decade began, reality stars were still a novelty of sorts. Over the next ten years, however, the line between "real" and "reality" stardom became increasingly blurred.
On last night's series finale, Jon Gosselin explained that when his marriage fell apart, he "felt like [he] was free," and talked about how cool it is living in NYC. In her interview, Kate Gosselin questioned her estranged husband's intentions.
On last night's penultimate episode of JKP8, TLC aired never-before-seen footage of "stories…interrupted by the events of this summer," i.e., the Gosselins' breakup and Jon's breach of contract with TLC. Obviously, this footage doesn't paint him in a good light.
In Jon Gosselin's $5 million countersuit against TLC, his lawyers argue that the network violated child labor laws, cast Jon as "David" fighting TLC's "Goliath," and recommend TLC's "infected hands be amputated." It gets even crazier:
In Kate: Her Story—an hour-long interview with NBC's Natalie Morales that aired last night on TLC—Kate Gosselin opened up about her estrangement from her parents, meeting Hailey Glassman, and why she chooses to remains in the spotlight.
Kate Gosselin appeared on Ellen today to push the final episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8, saying that the show has been a positive experience for her and the kids, and that it was taken from them "too soon."
To work around the production ban Jon Gosselin imposed, last night, TLC aired a special J&KP8, which featured Kate answering "any and all reasonable questions" from viewers about her kids, her hair, her divorce, money, and the show's shaky future.
On Friday, Jon Gosselin appeared on The Insider and said he intends on tapping into his kids' trust fund. This morning, Kate was on Today and The View to discuss how he emptied the family's bank account.
At this point, whenever I come across an article about Jon and Kate Gosselin, I feel like I'm reading the plot of a wacky Goldie Hawn comedy from 1987, wherein the main character runs around yelling, "I'll show you crazy!"
- Jon Gosselin is demanding TLC stop filming Jon and Kate. He posted a sign on his gate reading, "NOTICE: NO FILM CREW OR PRODUCTION STAFF FROM TLC IS PERMITTED ON THIS PROPERTY UNDER PENELTY [sic] OF TRESPASS. JOHNATHON [sic] GOSSELIN"
- At a concert on Sunday Marilyn Manson blew phlegm from his nose all over the stage (there's video). The next day he wrote on Facebook: "So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU..."
