Hello Gosselin fans! Happy Columbus Day! So sorry this post is late, but today was all about the kids and getting some new sneakers & clothes for the little one..She had a blast with the pumpkins, but the kids are literally antsy at the stores today.. Never bring the kids when you are going clothes shopping! ;) I also read and saw thew video of Jon Gosselin at the twin's soccer game. He was on the phone the whole time. Cara asked for her mother, and both girls asked to go home with a neighbor than to go home with their own father. It was truly a sad moment. I was upset that people were filming it.
Gosselins Vow Not To Attack Each Other For 24 Hours: E! Online.com
Gosselins Vow to Shut Their Mouths...for Now .....We'll believe it when we see it—or rather, when we don't see it, hear it or read about it—but after what we can only imagine was a contentious weekend for anyone bearing the surname Gosselin, something of a détente has been called, at least temporarily, between Jon and Kate. "We have a truce," Jon's attorney, Mark Heller, told E! News.
"Neither side will be commenting until after the hearing." A noble if exceedingly tardy gesture, to be sure, but all won't be quiet on the Gosselin front for too long: The silence-breaking hearing of which Heller speaks is taking place tomorrow. The arbitrator's conference will be held in Pennsylvania at an as-yet undisclosed location (in other words, not the courthouse) most likely at an attorney's office.
Over the weekend, Kate's attorney, Mark Momjian, told E! News that the duo will attempt to hash out agreements on "economic issues"—all 235,000 of them, we're guessing—during the hearing. Last week, Kate filed for temporary spousal and child support from Jon.
But while the duo may be doing their best to keep a low profile today, the same can't be said for their hangers-on. Chief among them, Michael Lohan. While Jon spent the weekend on parental duty, getting tagged out by Kate last night, the reality dad isn't hurting for company thanks to the unexpected and no doubt unsolicited arrival of his fellow tabloid-baiting papa. "Jon didn't know he was coming into town and Michael already left to go home to Long Island," a source told E! News of Lohan's visit. "I think he came into town to discuss the single dads reality show they have been thinking about for some time."
While the outcome of tomorrow's hearing remains a mystery, either way, Jon is scheduled to be back on dad duty by Wednesday.
Jon & Kate Gosselin Head to Arbitration Over Money: MSNBC.com
Attorneys for Jon and Kate Gosselin will meet Tuesday with a court-appointed arbitrator to hammer out the economic issues in their contentious divorce. Kate, who is seeking child and spousal support, has accused Jon of taking $230,000 from the family account. Jon denies the withdrawals were inappropriate and wants Kate to account for more than $100,000 she withdrew. “There are two sides to every story,” Jon’s attorney Mark Heller tells PEOPLE in a statement.
If the reality TV pair with eight kids resolves the financial dispute privately, they could avoid a hearing before a Montgomery County, Pa., judge. Kate’s attorney, Mark Momjian, had requested the emergency hearing, seeking to force Jon to return the money.
The arbitration comes as heated relations between the Gosselins seem to have cooled slightly. Jon spent a quiet weekend at their Wernersville, Pa., home, carving pumpkins with the kids and hanging with his pal, Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay Lohan.
“We rode four-wheelers, we had lunch, I rode his motorcycle,” Lohan tells PEOPLE. “I now see how close the children are to him. They are the most adorable kids and so friendly. Regardless of their situation, Jon and Kate raised eight wonderful children and they deserve a lot of credit.”
Kate Gosselin In This Month's Good Housekeeping: Good Housekeeping.com
Exactly one year ago, Jon and Kate Gosselin, stars of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, appeared with their eight children on the cover of Good Housekeeping. The couple shared the secrets of staying close as they struggled to meet the demands of raising twins Mady and Cara, now 9, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel, now 5. Allowing cameras to catch their unscripted bickering — along with the tender moments — endeared them to millions of viewers over the show's first four seasons. Kate said at the time, "People see us arguing, and they say, 'When will Kate and Jon split up?' Well, never. He's the only one who's been by my side through all of this."
But by their 10th wedding anniversary last June — after months of tabloid reports about marital trouble — the Gosselins had filed divorce papers. Kate's only public explanation for the split: "Our goals are different." Kate knows her priorities: She's laser-focused on making the best life for her kids, and making sure she stays strong for them as the curveballs keep coming her way. She's also turbocharging her career, which seems only to be on the rise since the split; beyond planning the show's episodes and her speaking engagements, she's even guest-hosted The View.
During this tremendous time of transition, Kate sat down with GH for a frank talk about her new life.
Kate, you seem to be doing amazingly well under all this pressure.KG: I'm just doing what I have to do. I've learned to deal with stress. In fact, things that would make the next person go over a cliff don't even make my radar anymore.
Would they make the old Kate go over a cliff? You seem to go with the flow more these days.KG [laughing]: Oh, the old Kate would be long over the cliff! So it's a good thing that I've put things in perspective. I realize that life isn't perfect — it can't be perfect. I can drive myself nuts trying to make it perfect, or I can just have a lot of fun with the kids.
Since I tend to dramatize things, I have taught myself to take a deep breath and ask if it's really as bad as it seems. I realized that if I handled the issues that come my way the way I used to handle them, I would probably have a heart attack. I don't really freak out about everything anymore — I can't afford to. I shock myself a lot with how I just handle things. I'm focusing on my kids: I cannot fail them.
How does that attitude translate in terms of your relationship with Jon?KG: Our relationship is getting there. I had a peaceful conversation with him yesterday. That doesn't happen all the time, but my goal is peace. Honestly, when I speak to him on the phone or see him in person, if I'm able to just picture the old Jon, I'm all right. I'm just leaving aside the hurt and the pain and the yuckiness of it. Because I don't want to argue; I don't want war. I don't want it for the kids, and I don't want the exhaustion of it. I just want solutions and resolution, and so I have to conduct myself in a certain manner. READ MORE AT THE SITE!
