Jon Gosselin on Kate Plus 8 Cancellation: So Relieved!

by at . Comments

Jon Gosselin is not exactly sad that TLC canceled Kate Plus 8.

On the contrary, he is "very relieved" that his kids will be finally away from cameras, he tells Radar Online. "I hope they can have more private family moments.

"I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children."

Jon Gosselin: What a Guy

Jon says he's long advocated for its cancellation and the kids getting "attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future."

"I have no clue what her next move is," Jon said of Kate. "I hope she dedicates more time to the kids. I wish her the best as she goes forward."

"Contracts have to end at some point," he said of TLC's decision. "I think everything ran its course and it was time to come to an end anyways."

Jon and Kate Plus 8 premiered in April 2007. It became a ratings smash, but nothing like what followed in 2009 when the marriage imploded.

The couple, now on more amicable terms, share custody of their eight kids. Kate is single, though she says she is ready to start dating again.

Jon Gosselin has a girlfriend, Ellen Ross, works a regular 9-to-5 job and lives in a Pennsylvania apartment not far from his ex-wife's house.



Whatever will Kate do when she has no earnings from her children's working to sponge off to pay for her expensive hairdos, fake nails, boob jobs and personal trainer? In what world does one get paid for taking care of their own children? Why, ours of course. sigh Those poor kids.


Thank goodness this show is going off the air. I could never stand Kate...she a stuck up B****. She was always hateful to Jon. You could tell he was the one always highly involved with the children...she could only be bothered by the children IF she was on camera and you could see right through her attempt at acting that she hated taking care of those darling children. Jon I wish you the best and hope things go great for you...Kate I don't wish you the best and I never wish bad luck for anyone but you are very close to it.


Jon isn't in the "spotlight" because he made a personal choice not to be, and that is his business, he isn't bad at it, and he is not on drugs either, probably he was understandably depressed after the hell Kate puts him through.I agree with Jmo. He is a nice person you can tell he is not the monster Kate has made him out to be. He doesn't have to be a "saint" he is a good dad and that's what is important. His relationships both past and present are his business.


Jon isn't in the spotlight because he was so bad at it. Remember the year of his running around and numerous girlfriends, he was on all the entertainment shows but he always came off sounding like he was on cocaine. If he was good at showbiz he would be doing it in a heartbeat. He takes care of the kids 4 days a month, big deal, he's still no saint.


jons diffrent from kate, kate dogged jon hundreds of time on t.v. shows and jon was nice and said he wished kate the best! despite what people have said about jon I think he's a nice guy. kate always blamed jon for everything so people would say bad things about him! kates next step is to snatch steve neild (body gauard) from his wife. I just can't believe kate keeped her kids in the spotlight for her glory!


Well, all I can say is that Jon didn't appear to be complaining when TLC was giving him a paycheck. He and Kate both chose to put those kids in the spotlight from the beginning and it wasn't until they began having marital problems did he go public saying he didn't want to do the show. I have watched Kate plus 8 and the kids seem to love the TLC crew. The show has fed their family for years and I think it is so disrespectful for Jon to bash on Kate because she continued with her own show.


im a 56yr old truck driver from kansas raising my grandkids i love country music but iv been turned on 2 lady gaga and think shes the bomb how creative every performance is and she is so full of talent cant wait 2 c more of her


Good for him Kate has let all this go to her head and her kids dont need the spotlight for her own glory


I totally agree with Jon! I'd love to be a mouse in the corner when you have your adorable crew! Hopefully you get to have a nice normal Family time once they regain what it should be like! I was always on your side! Yes you made some poor choice's right after Kate rejected you but I didn't blame You! I still believe Kate will wind up with her body Gaurd Steve? Good Luck Jon!
