TLC Cobbles Together More "Jon & Kate Plus 8"
As Jon and Kate Gosselin take off their gloves and really start pounding on each other in the press, TLC cable network has had to adjust its plans on its hit series starring America's Most Dysfunctional Family.
A little while ago, TLC said "Jon & Kate Plus 8" would wrap at the end of October and that Jon, who is separated from Kate, would become a recurring character on a spinoff show called "Kate Plus 8" starting Nov.2.
Jon countered by filing papers to prevent his eight children from being filmed by the TLC camera operator, resulting in something of a stalemate.
TLC has stopped shooting any footage of the children but continues to shoot more footage, of -- gak -- Kate. TLC plans to use existing footage of the kids being adorable that it had lying around and the new footage of Kate to create additional episodes of "Jon & Kate Plus 8," which will now run well into November.
It's unclear when TLC will be able to unveil "Kate Plus 8" but we're guessing it will happen not long after TLC agrees -- if it does -- to let Jon out of his exclusive contract with TLC, so he can continue to shop himself around as America's Most Telegenic Ex-Husband and, he hopes, land a more lucrative reality gig.
Meanwhile, Jon has been ordered to return more than $100,000 dollars he apparently took out of a bank account that Kate said was set aside to pay household bills. And the kids' former baby-sitter-cum-Jon-girltoy, Stephanie Santoro, told RadarOnline that Jon, a former I.T. analyst, has been hacking into Kate's e-mail, phone and online bank accounts.
