Kate In Talks For Her Own Talk Show, Nanny Affair Breaks, Saying Goodbye To Shoka & Nala

Hello Gosselin fans! Once again there are several new stories breaking now in Gosselin land. Kate was asked back on The View for Friday and it appears Kathy Griffin will be a guest. Who could hook me up for tickets to that one? (lol) But before I get into any of that, I want to say thanks for all the suggestions about the site. I am going to try a few different things in the next few days, but if I don't like it, the layout will stay the way it is. I went with colors I love and not what may be the best to clearly read. I guess the old blog was so boring, it was nice to have something different. So we will see what works out. The baby is FINALLY napping, and tonight is "Meet The Teacher" night, and my parents visiting! So on my day off I'm pretty much all over the place, so bear with me!

Jon Says Goodbye To Shoka & Nala:

Okay animal lovers, divorcing a spouse is one thing, but getting rid of your dogs is quite another. Jon Gosselin is sending his two German Shepherd's back to the breeder as part of the fallout of his divorce from Kate. While the eight Gosselin children are staying in the family's Wernersville, PA home, their parents are splitting time there, trying to avoid disrupting the kids lives but also not wanting to be around each other. Now, Shoka and Nala, the family dogs are being discarded and Jon has been telling pals it's Kate's fault because she won't take care of them when he's not at the house. "Jon blames Kate for having to give up the dogs," a source close to the situation told exclusively. "Of course these days, Jon blames Kate for just about everything."

Jon has given several interview recently and been brutal on Kate, saying he "despises" her and love girlfriend Hailey Glassman more than he ever loved his wife. He's also in the middle of another scandal, with his kids' babysitter, Stephanie Santoro now coming forward and confirming she had a sexual relationship with Jon. But Jon's attempts to blame Kate for getting rid of the dog simply isn't fair. The dogs have always been Jon's and while Kate was willing to do whatever she had to she simply can't handle them and Jon didn't make any other arrangements for them to be taken care of. He now lives in an apartment in New York City and never considered getting a place where he could keep his dogs, the source told "Kate's being gracious about the situation, she's not going to blame Jon," said the source.

Kate Gosselin's New Show, Plus The View Wants Her Back:

Can't get enough Kate Gosselin? Well lucky for you the rumors are true per Kate will be making an extra unscheduled guest hosting appearance on The View this week, taping another show to air Friday, with Kathy Griffin as a guest. And what makes this special, is that Griffin opened the Creative Arts Emmys in Ed Hardy-wear saying, "I just *** Jon Gosselin."

Meanwhile, Kate's guest stint on The View this week was just a warm up for a full-time gig. And while Jon & Kate Plus 8 is still going strong on TLC, Kate is trading in Jon for a much more genteel partner, Southern cooking belle Paula Deen. Industry insiders say that their new show has a working title of Mom Logic and is based on the popular Web site of the same name. Telepictures is behind the site and the new show.

E! Online's Mark Malkin broke the news of Kate's new show this week and now has learned that the proposed pilot will contain a mix of advice, health and beauty tips and celebrity gossip geared toward moms andmoms-to-be. Expect multiple hosts to accompany Kate and Paula. And guest hosting on The View has been good practice for Kate because the new show will be View-like in its approach and that a pilot will begin shooting later this month. Deen has been shopping shows around for the past 5 years, "with no takers," says a source at a competing production company. Meanwhile, Gosselin has been busy taking meetings all over town (which town? c'mon people, LA, of course!) trying to pitch a talk show of her own. Industry sources say she’s cancelled upcoming meetings, another signal that the deal for her new show is in the final stages of completion.

Jon Asked Babysitter To Lie About Relationship Per Mom:
Jon Gosselin sure knows how to juggle his women. Stephanie Santoro's mother Marci says Gosselin was unable to keep his relationship with babysitter Stephanie Santoro from Hailey Glassman, and when Glassman confronted him, Jon asked Stephanie to lie for him, denying they had ever been sexually involved.

“He asked her if she would call Hailey and calm Hailey down and tell her that they never had a relationship, that they never went to eat together, that they never did anything together; that all she was, was a friend and a sitter to the children,” Santoro told According to Santoro, Jon told Stephanie that while he liked Hailey, she was not the kind of woman he saw himself with long term. “He told Stephanie that he cared for Hailey, but he didn’t see her as the person he wanted to spend his life with,” Santoro said. “He didn’t see her as a stepmother figure for the children, but he said that he couldn’t end it now because there was too much stuff, like the clothing line, that Hailey was involved in. He had to be careful how he handled everything.”

Kate Gosselin is Fantastic & Winning Raves on The View, New Episode "Movie & A Catch"

Hello Gosselin fans! Kate was so poised, articulate, professional and overall fantastic on The View, people are already saying she should be a replacement! As soon as I am able to get video I will. And of course this will be updated during the night....

Hot topic: Kate Gosselin on The View

On Monday, she began her first of two guest hosting gigs on the ABC show - and she didn't hold back. Sherri Shepherd asked Gosselin what it was like to see her estranged husband Jon bringing his new girlfriend, 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, around their eight kids.
"This is all difficult - I'm not going to lie," she replied. But she wouldn't answer the question. "For the sake of my children," she told the ladies, she is going to "take the high road."She defended Serena Williams, who was fined $10,000 for her profane outburst at a line judge at the US Open on Saturday. "I think the important thing here is that she's in the public eye," Gosselin, 34, said. "We're all human." Gosselin even admitted, "In the privacy of my own home, this weekend, I melted down."

So why does she keep on filming her TLC show? "So many people say, 'Stop ... just pull out,'" Gosselin said. "I can stop, but I'd still have all the flack..." "I’m a single mom, and now more than ever I need to be out there working hard to support my children," she added. "It comes with a price; every job that people do comes with a price." She later said, "My focus is supporting my family and children and whatever way that comes, in a healthy way, I’m gonna do it. "I'm essentially doing it by myself, and I’m going be responsible," she said. When Whoopi Goldberg asked if she's paid enough, Kate replied, "Um... is anybody paid enough?"

Kate Gosselin's First Day On The View: "I will continue to take the high road".

The stress of a crumbling marriage and the fact that her estranged husband Jon has a new love appears to be finally getting to Kate Gosselin. Kate – guest hosting on The View Monday - said she had a meltdown this weekend in the privacy of her own home. Her revelation came as the ladies of The View were discussing Serena William’s on-court meltdown at the US Open on Saturday.

“She's in the public eye and she melted down," Gosselin finally chirped, fighting to get a word in edgewise. "She's in the public eye and melted down. don't we all? People in the public eye are held to a higher standard. and meltdowns happen.""We're all human," she said, interrupted three times. Joy Behar asked: How do you handle him bringing Hailey Glassman to the house?

"It's hard. This is definitely different. But I react to it the only way I can, and I will continue to react that way. For the sake of my children I will continue to take the high road, because it is the only road for me. But to be honest, I had a meltdown over the weekend in the privacy of my own home." On quitting the show, Kate said: "The show has really changed. People say just stop and pull out. But I can't. This is a job. I'm a single mom and I need to be out there working on my job. We didn't go into this wanting to be huge celebrities. But it happened. But essentially I'm doing this by myself. I'm responsible now."

New Episode: "Movie & A Catch" By Jackie McClellan:

As Jon and Kate continue to spend time separately with their kids, they both take time to reflect on their current family situation. On this week’s episode of “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” both Jon and Kate reflected on the upcoming divorce, while each spending time with their kids. The episode began with Kate and the kids preparing for an evening of fun at home. As Kate prepared dinner, Ashley (the nanny) watched the kids swim in the pool. While preparing dinner, Kate had some time to reflect on the upcoming divorce. She said she feels very overwhelmed, and she hopes that this feeling slows down. She also admitted to feeling lonely after the kids went to bed. After Kate and the kids finished dinner, they watched a movie outside on the lawn. As Kate said, “the kids were so excited about it.”

And even though the boys fell asleep, they all seemed to have a fun time. Kate’s part of the episode ended with her packing up to leave, and reflec
ting on having to leave her kids. “I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to the fact of packing up…I don’t like leaving…I don’t like having to wonder what they’re doing. I don’t like wondering if they’re having fun…You doubt yourself every day,” she concluded with tears in her eyes. The episode continues with Jon spending time with his kids. This time Jon takes the little kids and Mady fishing in the creek in their neighbor’s backyard. However, the event didn’t turn out as Jon had hoped. None of the kids had fun because it was too hot outside, and no one except Jon, caught any fish.

All the meanwhile, Kara opted to go over to Jon’s mom’s house instead. They spent quality time together, and also went
shopping. After fishing, they all made homemade pizzas on the grill back at home. Everyone enjoyed this activity much better. Even though the first day of fishing was unsuccessful, Jon didn’t give up. He said he “wanted them to enjoy the benefits of fishing.” Because of this, he brought the kids to a nearby pond the next day, for what hopefully would be, a more successful trip. And that is exactly what happened. As soon as they began fishing, they had a much better time. All the kids were having a lot more fun because they were all catching multiple fish. Jon concluded the episode by saying, “I’m trying to spend as much time with my kids as possible because my time is limited…. [this] time is stressful…no one said this was going be easy—it’s hard.”

As both Jon and Kate reflect on the current situation, they seem to have more in common than they may have thought.
