While the world and TLC is still reeling from Jon Gosselin's recent announcement that he wants to shut down filming of Jon & Kate Plus 8, his friend Michael Lohan tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that the reality dad wants out of his TLC contract to pursue a new show.“All I can tell you from my conversation with him two days ago is that he does want to pursue the Divorced Dads Club,” Lohan said. “Michael Heller, he and I represent Jon on a business level, wants him to do the show. Mark is trying to get him out of the TLC contract so he can.”
Divorced Dads Club is a new reality show chronicling the lives of famous divorced fathers and would include Gosselin and Lohan as two of its stars.
Lohan also revealed that TLC has been trying to force out Gosselin for awhile while keeping him on contract while they focus on Kate. On Tuesday, the network announced the dad’s role on the show would be limited and the show’s name changed to simply “Kate Plus 8.”
“TLC has come out and basically cut him out of Jon & Kate Plus 8,” he added. “They’ve taken the step already to do so. But what they’re trying to do is cut him out, cut him out, but tie him up still so he can’t do something else, while they reinvent Kate.”Source
It's war! Just two days after he was fired by TLC, Jon Gosselin is banning the network's cameras from his home, claiming the show is "detrimental" to his eight kids.
This sign was posted Thursday morning on the front gate: "Notice: No film crew or production staff from TLC is permitted on this property under penalty [sic] of trespass. Johnathon [sic] Gosselin."
Check out the embarrassing mistakes...the word penalty and even his own name are misspelled!
Just hours after TLC announced they were removing his name from the show's title, Gosselin's attorney fired off a letter to the cable network, threatening to call the cops if anyone from TLC tries to enter.
"In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."
It's tough talk from the man who, just a few weeks ago, said the camera guys were like family: "They love the camera crews, they love those guys, they make nicknames for them."
Kate Gosselin says she's "saddened" and "confused" by Jon's statements. "It appears that Jon's priority is Jon and his interests."
TLC is hitting back hard, issuing a statement calling Gosselin's behavior "Erratic," "disappointing," "self destructive," and "unprofessional."
"His latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and clearly opportunistic."So where was Jon Gosselin as the drama was unfolding? He was partying at a Los Angeles nightclub with, of all people, Girls Gone Wild king of sleaze, Joe Francis!
The duo got into a stretch limo with two blondes following right behind them.Source
