In an update to the story of a man so immature and self-centered he makes his five-year old kids look like adults, TLC has suspended shooting on Kate Plus 8.
The network has been forced to do so by Jon Gosselin, who had no problem exploiting his children and introducing them to young new play thing Hailey Glassman... as long as he received a paycheck in return.
But now that he's been let go from the series that made him famous, Gosselin has sent a letter threatening legal action if cameramen step foot on his property.
His pathetic wish has been granted, but at least the network got in a few shots at the overweight numbskull in the process. It released the following statement:
We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic.
Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.
Translation: if you see Jon Gosselin on the street, throw mud at him. This guy sucks.
