Jon Gosselin Willing To Renegotiate His Children’s Emotional Health

Remember when Jon Gosselin said that his kids could no longer film their TLC reality show because he decided that it was bad for them? OK, well, he takes that back. It’s now being reported that Jon and Kate are in talks to bring the kids back in front of the cameras for Kate’s reality show, with Jon getting a cut for his kids’ labor.

From Fox News:

“Kate is taking advantage of every opportunity,” a source close to Gosselin tells Fox411. “She is working her butt off, making payments on the house and finding new jobs and new projects that will pay her enough to secure the life she wants to provide the children. She is in demand and she wants to sustain the demand without overdoing it.”

Meanwhile, Jon is struggling to slide out of the mess he created for himself when he forced filming of “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” to stop last year. Sources say he is in talks with TLC to reach an agreement to allow them to film the family again.

“Jon does not have money for the intense lawyer fees and ensuing battle with the media giant and Kate has asked him to reconsider his decision for the family,” the source said. “She is willing to negotiate with him and TLC so that everyone gets what they want.”

But while the former couple is working toward a professional relationship, don’t expect them to become the best of friends any time soon.

Don’t worry, Fox News. I didn’t expect the two of them to go all BFF on us just ’cause they’ve figured out how to make money off of their kids again.

I should add that I actually really respect what a shithead Jon Gosselin has turned in to. On the show he only had a tiny little bit of visible douchey-ness and after the show it got pretty apparent and now it’s just like “I’m here, I’m queer, gay used to it”, except with being an asshole and a horrible parent instead of being a homosexual. I mean, he’s flying that flag so hard right now. There’s definitely something respectable about that level of commitment.

  • All them can rocket to Mars for all I care.. They got their money and moment of fame.. now deal with real life and grow up.

  • Jon has a book-writing opportunity too – “How to squander goodwill, commonsense, morality, integrity and money in less than a year: Or, how for a few transient thrills, I created a legacy of shame that will cause my children suffering for the rest of their lives.”

    And last, but not least, “How I made my emotionally abusive, shrew of a wife look like a saint despite her best efforts to show the world her true, greedy, self-centered, mean spirited self.”

    Who knew he would become Michael Lohan’s biggest competition for lousiest father of the year (well, Michael has a long head start, but I imagine that Jon will catch up with him).

  • What i don’t understand is how does the law work? It seems to me that it works differently for celebrities than it does for normal people. Paris hilton didn’t have to stay in jail. That sick guy that raped a little girl in Jak Nicholson’s house (Poloski??? i can’t remember his name….) doesn’t have to go to jail. Lil’ Wayne can postpone going to jail to “fix his teeth” (i think what’s really happening is that he wants to take the 150K worth of diamonds off his horrible mouth before he gets killed for it in jail…) and Jon and Kate’s kids are still with them and not in a foster home with a normal family… So i just don’t understand this at all.. They are bad parents, they don’t give a shit about their kids, and if it’s clear to us, that only know maybe 10% of the story, shouldn’t it be completely clear for a judge? It doesn’t make any sense to me at all…

  • If he were a decent person he would let the kids be filmed on a limited basis and not take a dime of their money. It should go to their sole support, he’s just proven he’s nothing more than a sperm donor anyway. They will need psychological services later in life so they might as well earn the money for it now. Can you imagine when they are around 14 and find all of this stuff out about their Dad? My God! Naturally a guy who never made over 10 dollars an hour would want his cut of his children’s work effort. He’s a greedy, childish pig of a man.
