Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Reunite at Yard Sale—and Yes, TLC's Kate Plus 8 Cameras Were Rolling!
Since calling it quits in the summer of 2009, the exes have, for the most part, kept their distance. On Saturday, however, Jon went to St. John's United Church of Christ in Wernersville, Pa., for a family yard sale. His ex-wife, 39, sold appliances, books, booster seats, car seats, clothing, furniture, toys and more.
Per a local radio station, Kate said, "No price tags! Let's wheel and deal!" A portion of the proceeds went towards the Animal Rescue League of Berks County. A source tells E! News that the yard sale will be featured in an upcoming Kate Plus 8 special, airing in December, but there are no plans to have the recently evicted father of eight, 37, appear in the episode.
"We had a memory filled X at r yardsale! Met hundreds of THE nicest ppl & saw many old friends 2! PLUS raised tons of $ for ARL Berks County," Kate tweeted. " Thank you ALL 4 coming out to meet us! My kids had fun w ur kids on playground! And thx 2 for your generous donations to ARL Berks County!" Earlier this year, Jon said he regrets letting Discovery Health and TLC film his family from 2005 to 2011. "I don't think being on TV is good for kids. A lot of them do not want to film and they come to me and tell me that," he told In Touch. "It's upsetting and I think it's embarrassing for them. They are enjoying having an ordinary childhood." At the time, he alleged that Kate used their children "as props" for TV.
The Gosselins have often argued about how to raise twins Cara and Mady, 14, and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah, 10. Over the summer, Kate explained why she's kept her kids in the spotlight. "If there was another way to singly support eight children, you would not know this name and I would be on an island, and so would they. You would never hear from us again," she told E! News. "Having said that, this is a pretty fantastic way to feed my children, keep them in an amazing house, at an amazing school, and make memories together. That's just my life and cameras are there," she said. "So I understand this situation because I landed on TV somehow. This is just part of that. I look at it as work and the kids are with me, they run in and out of the frame, and we go to cool places sometimes.
