Radar.com: TLC has settled its lawsuit against Jon Gosselin."TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation. All terms of the settlement are confidential. The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC,” TLC said in a statement released Wednesday.
The network had sued Jon for breach of contract and won a preliminary injunction against him late last year. Jon’s paid interviews and public appearances brought negative publicity to the network and violated his contract, TLC charged. A judge agreed. Trial was set for April but sources close to the situation said all TLC wanted was for Jon to abide by his contract. Sources also told RadarOnline.com that Jon couldn’t afford the expensive litigation.
He told TLC that he would allow them to once again film his children for a reality show. But the network has not committed to bringing back Jon & Kate Plus 8, or its retitled successor, Kate Plus 8. “The network says this is not about the kids. It’s about Jon breaching his contract,” a source told RadarOnline.com. Kate has a new show in development with TLC.
Jon Gosselin, TLC Call a Truce: Is He Coming Back to TV?: E! Online.com
Jon Gosselin and TLC shared a little, well, TLC today, announcing an amicable end to what had been acrimonious dueling lawsuits. And by the sound of it, the deal not only will allow Kate Gosselin to resume her reality antics with an in-the-works spinoff show, but it seems to pave the way for the octodad also to make a return to TV."Jon has expressed his desire to close the litigation chapter of Jon & Kate Plus 8...He's hoping that TLC will move forward with the best interest of the Gosselin family," Jon's attorney, Mark Heller, said."Sometimes litigants kiss and make-up, finding their relationship is much better the second time around. As Jon's attorney, I truly hope that this new adventure for TLC and the Gosselins is a much more joyful journey."
The network also confirmed the confidential settlement, stressing "the whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC." As the TV show fell apart, TLC launched the first salvo in October, suing the Jon & Kate Plus 8 patriarch for misrepresentation of the facts and breach of contract after he accepted paying gigs from the likes of Entertainment Tonight and The Insider and made several unauthorized disclosures about behind-the-scenes behavior on the Jon & Kate set. He fired back with a $5 million countersuit in November, accusing the cable net of violating child labor laws during filming of his brood and forcing him to sign a "one-sided contract" that kept him from capitalizing on his fame. Finally, he claimed TLC still owed him at least $175,000 from the show.
Things grew nasty, as TLC deposed several of Gosselin's former inner circle, including flings Kate Major and Hailey Glassman, and one-time potential partner Michael Lohan. Jon's stonewalling, meanwhile, kept the network from filming his children for Kate's new reality excursion.
Had the two sides failed to reach a resolution via mediation, the case was scheduled to go to a jury trial in April. But last week, Team Gosselin signaled that they were willing to make a deal and had softened their stance. Heller tells E! News that another show is under consideration but nothing is official: "I assume that time is money and TLC likes to enjoy the profits of good programming, so I assume that they won't wait too long to make some decisions.
"We'll just have to wait to see what unfolds."
Attacking Kate Gosselins 2.3 Seconds Of Windblown Hair
Recently several hate sites including the garbage that is GWOP printed an unflattering photo of Kates hair blowing in the wind when she went out to dinner recently. The comments were almost laughable.. "Ohh she looks like shes chewing gum. Her hair and her face look awful." I'm TRYING TO FIGURE OUT exactly how you are supposed to look when it's windy outside, and your trying to keep your mouth closed so the idiot photogs don't get a nasty shot of you with your mouth open. But leave it up to them to pick the most unflattering of the bunch to publish and attack. Her hair for the record is beautiful, and probably twice as fantastic as any of the women on that site trying to make themselves feel better by criticizing a split second of 5 seconds of video and photography. Its amazing to think about what they would do to a photo of us, taken in the cold wind...makes you wonder huh? UGH! Watch the video yourself below and decide whether Kate got a bad rap...
