TLC Suspends Production on Jon & Kate Plus 8, Hates on Would-Be Hoodie Tycoon
Instead of taking back the fired Jon Gosselin and just calling the show Kids & Kate Plus Ingrate, TLC has suspended shooting on Jon & Kate Plus Eight and released a statement about Jon Gosselin's recent attempt to shut down the show's production in the wake of his firing. The network planned on filming the show without Gosselin as Kate Plus Eight and chronicling Kate Gosselin as a single mother, and there's no telling what this bad press will do to Gosselin's Ed Hardy hoodie line that was set to finally establish "vomit-print" at as unassailable fashion statement. TLC's statement after the jump.
Said TLC in a statement to People:
"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."
Is everyone too angry to talk about the surefire hit Gosselin has in Divorced Dads Club? I'm ready to storyboard.
