Kate Gosselin’s kids are stoked about being back on TV

Kate Gosselin‘s Kate Plus 8 show tanked after her marriage to Jon fell apart and the twins Maddie and Cara got too old for their bratty ass attitudes to be cute anymore, and so we all said goodbye to the family and hoped the kids would grow up with some sense of normalcy.

That was not to be, of course, since Kate became obsessed with turning herself into a walking Barbie and trying to exploit every chance for fame she could get, and Jon went off the rails and became a gun-toting woodsman. It’s all very sad, but here’s what’s sadder: Kate is bringing the kids back to TV.

TLC has commissioned a one hour Kate Plus 8 special to air in June, which will apparently catch us all up on what the family has been doing since the last show got canceled. Maddie and Cara said during that extremely awkward interview in which they embarrassed Kate horribly that they do miss being on TV (of course they do – they’re kids!), so apparently they’re thrilled with the news… and so are the rest of the tribe, says Kate. Jon, of course, is not so thrilled.

“They cheered like crazy. It was like I announced that it’s Christmas tomorrow,” Kate, 38, tells Us. “Our crew walked in and it was like they had never left.”

Dad Jon Gosselin, however, is not cheering. “He thinks it is a really bad idea for his kids,” a source tells Us. “Jon feels he has his kids’ best interest at heart.”

Well, OF COURSE it’s a bad idea for his kids. As if they’re not damaged enough from growing up on TV and being the children of two INSANE PEOPLE. I mean, come on!

However, this shit is happening whether we like it or not, so how about no one watches and that’ll ensure that TLC never wastes broadcast money on them again?

Jon Gosselin: ‘Kate Gosselin Is Disgusting and Awful’

Jon and Kate Gosselin always had a bit of a weird marriage that was destined to explode, so no one was all that surprised when it did and they got divorced. The years following their split have been weird. Kate grew out her Sonic the Hedgehog haircut, got a ton of plastic surgery and tried to keep the fame machine going, which has ultimately failed. Meanwhile, Jon took on menial jobs like plumbing and… shooting guns at paparazzi.

Well, now Jon has spoken out against Kate, basically saying she’s awful for continuing to exploit their kids and spreading the family’s personal business on the likes of Twitter. Jon was never into all the weird fame-y stuff, but for Kate, it was all very exciting so it kinda makes sense that she’d be clinging to any amount of notoriety for dear life.

Here’s what Jon said about it in Philadelphia magazine:

We finish eating and head outside so Jon can have a smoke. We’re discussing the shooting-your-pistol-in-the-general-vicinity-of-a-tabloid-photographer incident when the issue of privacy comes up. “Yeah, Twitter,” he says in between drags. “I deleted it last year. Best thing I ever did. I can disappear. Nobody knows where I am.” @Kateplusmy8, meanwhile, is going strong at 174,000 followers. This enrages Jon. “She tweets everything. To the world, all about my children. I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life.”

I feel compelled to remind him he volunteered those same children for a five-season stint on prime-time television; Collin, Aaden, Joel, Hannah, Alexis, Leah, Mady and Cara’s formative moments are currently stacked in a pile of DVDs on my coffee table. He thinks this over for a few seconds. “Right. So I made a mistake.”

Ha. Yeah, you did, man. But even on the show, you could always tell it was Kate who was running things and that Jon kinda went along with it like a derpy derp derp until he got his shit together. I don’t know the reason why he walked out, but maybe because it was bullshit? Maybe because he realised it wasn’t going to be all that great for the kids in the long run? (Don’t forget, he recently claimed that the lifestyle forced upon them has given pretty much all the kids developmental issues!)

Either way, Jon has kinda gone off the deep end, living in the woods and shooting things all the time. They’re both not all that great, and I feel bad for the kids, to be honest.

FYI Ed Hardy Founder Hates Jon Gosselin Now

Ed Hardy was one of the worst fashion trends to ever happen. Thankfully, the company is pretty much dead now. And the founder, Christian Audigier, may blame Jon Gosselin, because apparently Ed Hardy does. When Jon Gosselin was super famous, he wore Ed Hardy all the time and became BFF with Audigier. Now Gosselin is a waiter in the middle of nowhere when he’s not shooting paparazzi off his property. Here’s more from TMZ:

Gosselin and Audigier were best buds during Jon’s reality show heyday … and even vacationed together while planning a children’s clothing line.

But that’s all changed according to Audigier … who had nothing but bad things to say about Jon while cruising out of Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood last night.

Christian doesn’t explain his sudden hate — but Ed Hardy himself recently spoke out saying he’s also not too fond of Gosselin … because after associating with Jon, the company’s sales TANKED.

I think we’re all thankful that Ed Hardy and Jon Gosselin are gone. Those were dark years.
