TV Bites: Who Wants a Jon & Kate Remix?
This morning, there are two people rooting for a televised Jon Gosselin-Kate Gosselin reunion: Jon Gosselin and Jon Gosselin's lawyer. The lawyer, former assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, has been dropping hints to news outlets this weekend like, "under the right circumstances" Jon is "definitely open" to co-starring with his ex-wife on another television program. Meanwhile, Jon is still asking for legal custody of the children, claiming that his wife is "addicted to the paparazzi." Jon, you can't have it both ways -- you either ask your ex to throw you a pity project after she finishes shooting Dancing with the Stars or you screw her by taking custody of the children. Pick one.
