Kate Gosselin may have won yesterday’s battle with Jon, but her estranged husband is coming back with a vengence. Jon & Kate Plus 8 is no more, and it looks like Kate Plus 8 will never be.
The Gosselin family patriarch succeeded in his bid to shut down filming of the show that made his family famous. TLC has decided not to challenge Jon’s actions at the present time, according to a source close to the show. TLC has not yet made an official announcement.
The show will continue to run through mid to late November, when shooting of the show’s new incarnation Kate Plus 8, was set to begin.
“They will eek out what they can in terms of more shows,” an undisclosed source told RadarOnline.com. “Obviously they are not shooting anymore so they are taking what they have and seeing how many more episodes they can get out of it.”
If you’re thinking that Jon finally decided to pull out of the public eye for the sake of his family, think again. He told Entertainment Tonight that he plans to “continue on television.” Wonderful! We can’t wait to see more of class act Jon Gosselin!
The family’s money-making juggernaut has been canceled, so why are these two smiling? Because in the past 72 hours, each of them has managed to hit the other hard below the belt. Marriage! (RadarOnline, Us Magazine)
