TLC fires Jon Gosselin, Jon wants to stop the divorce

Ratings for Jon and Kate Plus Eight have dropped to a season low of 1.7 million (down by 8 million since the divorce episode) proving that people are tired of watching Kate’s possum head bitch and moan at an old dude in an Ed Hardy tee. So it’s time for restructuring. TLC announced today that they have dropped Jon Gosselin from Jon and Kate. They don’t straight out say it, but in a statement just released, TLC says the show will still focus on the kids but with a “deeper focus on Kate’s role as a single mother.”

“The program will continue to capture the incredible lives of the eight Gosselin children and their family but will now include a deeper focus on Kate’s role in the family and her journey as a single mother building the next chapter in her life. TLC will continue its exclusive relationship with Jon Gosselin and he will continue to appear on the show, but on a less regular basis.

Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family. The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers. Additionally the network is in development on a Kate project for 2010”

The show will be retitled Kate Plus Eight. Jon will be pushed into obscurity. Fame will leave him. Ed Hardy will fall out of love with him.

Shortly after the announcement, Jon’s attorney contacted In Touch to tell them Jon is having second thoughts about the divorce.

“He woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and didn’t like the reflection,” Jon’s attorney, Mark Jay Heller, tells In Touch. “He realized he’d made some bad choices.” Jon and Kate were due to be officially divorced by the end of November — but now he claims he’s had a serious change of heart. “I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated [on June 22],” Jon tells In Touch exclusively. “I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.”

Translation: I don’t want to be dropped from the show because then girls will realize I’m just a weird old guy who wears t-shirts people in their 20′s wouldn’t be caught dead in.

    These people need to go away. Maybe their ratings are so low b/c people finally came to their senses and realized these people are idiots.

    YOU KNOW IN A FUNNY WAY I WILL LOVE TO SEE THEM GET BACK TOGETHER !

    Good grief…he can’t possiably think that Kate would reconcile with him after his public chick cruising and his completely wild behavior plus the constant parade of nannies and other women coming out saying he bedded them. This whole thing is Jon trying to keep his income…without the money …there will be no honey.

    hopefully Kate is emotionally unattached to him (as a husband) and can see through this B.S.!

      like you can’t see through Kate’s BS? She tore the marriage up by running off to parade in front of the cameras, leaving him to care for the kids most of the time and crabbing about everything she didn’t like about him. One thing’s for sure…it’s the cameras that broke up the marriage, it’s the cameras that will mess up the lives of those kids. And what does Kate want? She wants to continue doing the same thing…be in front of the cameras with her kids. At least he’s trying to terminate that nonsense. He may not be perfect, but he’s more of a father than she is a mother…she’s just an actress now.

    They are just people. I don’t really care what they do with the show, I watch it sometimes.

    They lose the show they lose their income, and so the attorneys are trying to make it right.

    DONT FORGET ! it is TV, this might not even be REAL drama.

    Have a great day !

    I don’t care what Kate did. She didn’t deserve to be cheated on. No mother of eight does! If it were the other way around you all would be calling her worse names. Jon is outright wrong for what he did. Every mother becomes frustrated. I have six, I can relate. She’s a real woman, with real feelings, and genuine frustrations. Do you think it’s okay for someone to cheat on you whenever you become frustrated, irritated or a little upset?
