You'll rarely hear the THG staff take Kate Gosselin's side in anything, but when her own brother, Kevin Kreider, sells her out on CBS' Early Show, well ...

We're still not on Kate's side, per se. We're just saying what a d!ck move it is by Kevin Kreider and loser wife Jodi to procure 15 minutes at her expense.

The two have recently joined forces with Team Jon Gosselin (they officially are Team Jon Gosselin, as we can't imagine there are many other members).

Their mission: Free the Gosselin Eight!

Kevin and Jodi Kreider took to the morning show today to point out, as they have in the past, that they think the Jon and Kate Plus 8 should be canned.

No one asked for the their opinion on the matter, mind you, nor does Jon Gosselin give a $h!t about anyone but himself. But here we are, just the same.

They even brought Gloria Allred, famed lawyer and child welfare advocate who loves microphones and cameras even more than they do, along for fun.

The backstabbing Gosselin relatives promotly threw Kate under the bus pretending to care about their poor, exploited nieces and nephews. Mmm hmm.

Here's Kevin and Jodi on the Early Show ...

Don't ask us how someone like Kate Gosselin has fans. Hey, everyone, this really mean, grating woman has eight kids! Everyone gather 'round the tube!

Whatever the reason, though, people are apparently interested in what she has to say. That or TLC's interns are just making up "fan" questions for her.

The 34-year-old future divorcée took part in a very special Q&A session on Monday's episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 (soon to be renamed Kate Plus 8).

In response to the question, "Do you ever see yourself married again?" Kate Gosselin said "Seriously? You think now is a good time to answe that?"

Okay then.

"I struggle because I really don't want to be married again. Can you blame me? But I don't want to be alone. We shall see. Maybe when I'm 73 1/2."

Here's a question: Is that a dead porcupine on your head?

Other highlights from the "You Ask, Kate Answers" special:

  • Little kids hit each other a lot.
  • Kate wants to be in a movie someday.
  • She would like to move out of Pennsylvania.
  • She likes Patrick Dempsey and Tiger Woods.
  • Little boys Collin, Aaden and Joel are still talking about their recent trip to Wyoming and "they still want to be cowboys when they grow up."
  • "A healthy amount of money is put away for the kids, and it is safe," Kate promised fans. "It will not be touched other than for education."
  • "If you take care of yourself and try to look nice, it's reflective of how you feel about yourself," Gosselin says of her evolving fashion sense.

Jon Gosselin has complied with a court order to return $230,000 he withdrew over the past several months to a joint account he shares with estranged wife Kate.

Over the weekend, Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, claimed he had not fully replenished their shared account, which he raided, claiming he thought it was payday.

Momjian claimed Jon still owed $152,000. Well, he doesn't, and amazingly, the check he wrote to cover that amount cleared without bouncing. We lost that bet.

Gosselin appeared in Montgomery County court in Pennsylvania Monday. Jon and Mark Heller, his New York-based attorney, criticized his wife for not appearing.

"We have all the representation we need," Heller said outside the court.

"All we need is Kate's participation and for Kate to stop crying on TV."

BURN! Someone also needs to get her to ditch the mullet. Just saying.

Morons

We've gotta get these two out of court and into a cage.

In addition to calling out his wife for pulling a no-show, Jon said he is "optimistic" about the proceedings, and that Kate still has not explained how she spent $33,000 in recent cash withdrawals from their joint funds.

He's also accused the grating one of hiding book royalties and other assets.

Judge Arthur Tilson, however, said both are in compliance and left further arrangements to an arbitrator ... who was supposed to resolve this in the first place.

A two-day conference with the arbitrator is scheduled for November.

Whose side are you on?

Last week, Jon Gosselin wanted credit for returning the $180,000 he withdrew from a joint account with estranged wife Kate, even if he was never allowed to take it.

Well, on top of being a d-bag who expects praise for doing what he's supposed to (and any normal human being would), Jon is a liar who didn't actually return it.

Kate Gosselin says she is still waiting for Jon Gosselin to return the money he took from the account, but she herself has obeyed a court order, her attorney says.

She has itemized what she spent from the account, says her attorney Mark Momjian, adding the reverse-mulleted grating one "has complied with the court order."

Kate says she spends money from the account on their kids. Jon? Well, we know how he likes to whine and dine those mediocre girls. Sorry, Hailey Glassman.

Big Pimpin' J

Earlier Friday, Jon's attorney Mark Heller, said Jon was in "complete compliance" with a court order telling him to return $180,000 he took from the joint account.

Depends on your definition of complete, apparently.

So far only $28,500 has been returned, says Kate, who as of yesterday was waiting for Jon's Pennsylvania attorney to send back the remaining $152,000 he owes.

"We still haven't had that money wired to us," her lawyer said.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday in a Norristown, Pa. courtroom if the money issue is not resolved. Momjian said he is not sure yet if that hearing will happen.

Whomever gets the money, they should keep a whole team of shrinks on retainer. Those poor eight kids are going to take them to the poor house in a few years.

Kate Gosselin is ready to tell her side of the story. Unfiltered.

Check that, it's completely filtered. There are going to be more softballs lobbed over the plate here than the Angels pitchers threw at the Yankees last night.

Wicked Witch of PA

After bonding with Meredith Viera on Today and the ladies of The View, the grating, reverse-mulleted mother of eight scored an hour-long special on TLC.

The final episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 as we know it is set to air next Monday, the same day they're due in court to hash out their bank account drama.

Clearly, this is them sticking it to Jon Gosselin, who TLC is suing for breach of contract after he halted production on the newly-renamed Kate Plus 8.

In the hour-long special, she'll be answering your pressing "questions about life, the show and moving on," the network announced in a press release.

They're even calling the gig You Ask, Kate Answers.

Queries can be posted on TLC's main show site. Here are just a few we would like to see Kate answer on the air during the special no one watches:

  • Do you try to be so mean or is it just your nature?
  • At what point did all the fame go to your head?
  • Who do the kids hate more, you or Jon?
  • Is that a dead porcupine on your head?

As their parents continue to make celebrity gossip headlines, the eight children of Jon and Kate Gosselin are starting to feel the effects of all the stress.

Wow, there's a shocker. Thank goodness Jon had that epiphany and decided he would pull the plug on their reality show (completely selflessly, of course).

In a new article in Vanity Fair, Kate says the kids are "acting out" lately – but she is hopeful it's a phase that will pass as the kids adjust to the divorce.

"I'm trying to give them the grace to see, if they’re acting out of line, I'm trying to look deeper into why that is," the mulleted one tells the magazine.

"I am so emotionally spent. Why are the kids acting out? 'Cause it’s all inter-related. I mean, they don’t see it that way, but it’s all interconnected."

  • Jon Gosselin Engaged?
  • Jon and Kate 2.0

All this? Making eight small children upset? You're joking.

Referring to her estranged, douchebag ex, destitute Kate says, "They miss him. They say they miss him. I imagine they say the same thing when I'm away."

Not only are the kids hurting without their parents together, Kate said that the demise of their hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8 has caused nothing but heartache.

Jon objected to his kids being filmed ... conveniently after TLC announced plans to relaunch the show as simply Kate Plus 8, with little or no Jon featured.

TLC has turned around and sued Jon for breach of contract.

Kate's summation of the children's reaction to Jon's move:

"Over the weekend I told [the kids] that we're not filming. And actually, times eight, there was wailing and sobbing. They love our crew, they love the interaction."

"There is nothing harmful about it. They are angry."

The former babysitter for the Gosselin family that Jon is also rumored to have nailed is at it again, blabbing to celebrity gossip sites and causing a ruckus.

Today's claim? Jon has a history of hacking into Kate's life. Literally!

Stephanie Santoro tells Radar Online that Jon Gosselin has been snooping into his estranged wife's email, phone and online bank accounts. Well, obviously.

"Jon told me that he pretty much hacked into everything of Kate's that he had access to," Santoro says. "Her online banking, that he had a trace on every single one of her emails so anytime she would get an email he would get a copy of it."

And Stephanie, who said she had sex with Jon nine times while working with the family, says he doesn't even care who knows his snooping tactics.

"Jon threatens everyone that he will sue them if they tell what they know," she claimed, adding that he does not use a lot of discretion. Shocking.

Stephanie Santoro sheds new light on Jon and Kate's public battle over money.

On Tuesday, a judge ordered Jon to pay back $180,000, following Kate's claim a few weeks ago that he had taken $230,000 from their shared account.

Kate claimed he left her with only $1,000 to pay bills and take care of the couple's eight small children. He responded that she, too, was hiding cash.

"He told me that he had enough there that when the ball dropped he would have enough to completely screw her over," Stephanie Santoro said.

Kate Gosselin said in an interview with TMZ that she is "disturbed" by reports that Jon has hacked into her emails and other personal accounts.

Her rep says that the reverse-mulleted one "has heard the allegations made by Stephanie Santoro that Jon Gosselin 'hacked' into her emails, phone, and online accounts, and she is profoundly disturbed by them."

"Under the circumstances, Ms. Gosselin is carefully considering her legal options regarding this, and will pursue them if and when the time is right."

Does Jon Gosselin hack, snoop and monitor Kate's every move? That we cannot say with certainty. Is he a Grade A douchebag? That is 100 percent in the affirmative.

Jon Gosselin has been ordered to return a staggering $180,000 he took from a joint account he shares with estranged wife Kate in violation of a arbitrator's order.

Kate alleged that Jon cleaned out the account of more than $200,000 (her story kept changing, and the amount increasing, to $235,000), leaving her destitute.

Kate Gosselin Thin

Jon said he withdrew only $22,000, which was clearly a lie, and also accused his ex of fabricating that she can't pay bills when she herself is hiding $1 million.

According to Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, "The remaining sum of $55,000, which Ms. Gosselin used for household bills and expenses relating to the children, will be subject to further determination by the arbitrator at a later date."

Kate Gosselin said in a statement, "As difficult as this has been for me, I am pleased that the court has ruled fairly on behalf of myself and my children."

"Now that this matter has been ruled on, I look forward to returning to private arbitration, as Jon and I have agreed to do, to resolve any remaining issues."

This picture was taken in court today. Just kidding!

Speaking on behalf of Team Jon was his lawyer, Mark Heller.

"All of the attorneys on both sides worked very hard. We are all very pleased with the outcome of the court proceeding and the arbitration session," he said, putting on an act. "We are very hopeful that there will soon be a resolution."

Jon is thus required to give back that cash by October 26 - the next time they two are back in court - or appear before the judge for a contempt proceeding.

In response to Jon's allegations that Kate is hoarding massive sums, the judge also ordered Kate to provide accounting of past expenses by the same date.

Today's Jon and Kate circus at the Montgomery County courthouse featured an oddball cast that included the Kate Plus 8 principals, a small army of lawyers, an arbitrator, a judge, Kate's omnipresent bodyguard and others.

Michael Lohan was even there to show support for his new BFF.

Flanked by their respective lawyers, Jon Gosselin both arrived in court at 8:30 a.m. EST this morning and spent about an hour inside chambers before leaving.

They first met with an arbitrator but were unable to strike a deal about how  to divvy up their money, which has become quite the point of contention of late.

Then they went before a judge, who told the parents of eight to try again with an independent arbitrator (which they already tried, and landed them here).

Kate had said she wants alimony from Jon, who says she's the thief.

The Gosselins are due back in court October 26.

Jon and Kate's legal camps hoped to hash out various financial matters, including Kate's request for temporary spousal and child support and, not incidentally, her claims that Jon yoinked $235,000 from their joint account in one week.

Jon fired back with allegations that Kate took out $60,000 from their joint account this year without permission ... and that there's over $1 million that hasn't been properly accounted for, largely stemming from her book royalties.

A few weeks ago, after a round of tabloid accusations had him going to town on nanny Stephanie Santoro, Jon tried to put the brakes on divorce proceedings until after they actually had a chance to work together on things. But alas.

Jon then decided that having his kids star in a TV show, which now happens to be named Kate Plus 8, is no longer smart, and demanded TLC cease production.

Pick your side!

Kate Gosselin has filed for alimony from estranged husband Jon.

The Insider, which first reported the news, says the petition was filed in court sometime last week, around the same time when Jon tried to halt production on their TLC show and pretended his concern for their kids was the reason.

Whether Jon actually owes alimony will have to be determined.

The two are not officially divorced, and he has alleged that she receives and controls the bulk of their income. On the flip side, he's accused of cleaning her out.

Kate claims that his withdrawals of over $200,000 from their joint bank account - leaving her with only a grand - was not only a d!ck move, but an illegal one.

Meanwhile, Jon has filed papers claiming she did the same.

Both Jon and Kate say the other is stealing and/or hoarding cash.

According to legal documents, Jon claims Kate withdrew over $60,000 from their joint account between July-September 2009. He took only $22,000, he says.

He also claims she took out over $1 million from February 2008-2009 and that plenty of her funds, including book royalties, have not been fully accounted for.

Sources close to Kate Gosselin say that her withdrawals were legal, whereas Jon withdrew up to $230,000 without permission required by their court arbitrator.

Both idiots are due back in court this Tuesday for the latest installment in their long-running soap opera. Hopefully there are some bulletproof vests involved.
