Jon Gosselin And TLC Could Reach A Settlement

More information is coming out about why Jon Gosselin is willing to allow TLC to film his kids again, although I think we all knew this day was coming, didn’t we? Apparently, Jon was deposed by TLC a couple of weeks ago, and things did not go well. Radar Online reports that Jon “knows” he can’t win a trial.

“Jon, and his family, has been hurt badly in terms of money he has had to spend,” another source told “A trial will be very, very expensive for him.”

TMZ put it more bluntly, saying Jon was “too broke” to fight TLC. Which is generally why it’s a good idea to think twice before taking a company in court: they have very deep pockets.

However, this doesn’t mean TLC plans on starting up a new version of ‘Kate Plus 8.’ They reportedly don’t trust Jon’s offer to allow them to start filming his kids again anyway.

“For TLC this lawsuit wasn’t about getting the show back on the air,” a source close to the situation told “And they don’t want it to appear that it was.”

According to TMZ, TLC is insisting that Jon abide by his contract. Translation: he can’t appear on TV without their permission.

I just can’t help but wonder: what in the world has Jon been THINKING all this time? What were his so-called advisors thinking? This stupidity has just been mind-boggling!

Kate Gosselin Celebrates Return To TV With A Night Out In NYC

Kate Gosselin was spotted enjoying a kids-free evening out in the city. I think a night with grown-ups only is in order when you take care of eight kids, don’t you? LOL

She had plenty to celebrate to: in addition to her own reality show, which she’s working on with TLC, she is returning to ‘The View’ as a co-host in March.

It looks like Kate also made some adjustments to her hair extensions while in the city, getting straighter hair. I’ve put a couple of pics with her wavy extensions in the thumbnails.

Which look do you prefer? I think she looks better with the straightened extensions. Maybe it’s just that these extensions look way healthier than the wavy ones, though.

‘Jersey Shore’s’ Pauly D Offered $50,000 To Give Bride Away

Now this is just insane. According to Radar Online, ‘Jersey Shore’ castmember Pauly D was offered $50,000 to give a bride away. This bride wanted a COMPLETE STRANGER to give her away at her wedding. However, Pauly D declined the offer.

“We rejected the offer, because Pauly is a serious DJ and all the other cast members are doing lots of personal appearances but Pauly D is not necessarily doing the personal appearances because he feels he has a lot to learn as a DJ. He does not want to be doing stuff that is unrelated to DJ-ing.”

What?! The reason for rejecting the offer is almost as crazy as the request itself!

I guess it’s great that Pauly D is so focused on the craft of DJ-ing (does anyone know what the craft involves? I honestly don’t know), but to turn down a $50,000 appearance fee for it?

But the request itself is crazy. I guess (hope) the bride’s father isn’t involved in her life.

Lauren Conrad Opens Up About ‘Sweet Little Lies’

Lauren Conrad sat down with Fox Five and opened up about living in Hollywood, promoting her new book and being a designer.

What’s this book about?

It’s a story that’s told over three books. So this picks up where the last one left off.

How much of the book is based on your life?

There are things that could happen. I think that after living it for the last two years I have a pretty good idea of what’s realistic. It was fun to write. There are things that happen in Hollywood.

Do you put pressure on yourself to reach the same level of success as your first book?

I do. You don’t want to put that on yourself. But we are trying to be positive.

What’s it like to do meet and greats with fans?

It’s amazing. You’re there for a couple of hours and it flies by. Everyone’s so excited to be there. It’s really good energy to be around.

Be sure to watch the rest of the video to hear Lauren’s full interview.

Heidi Montag’s Plastic Surgeon Speaks!

He’s “COMPLETELY SHOCKED” at all the bad press.

Dr. Frank Ryan said he actually did 30-40 procedures on Heidi Montag (but considers botox injections one procedure each, breast implants as 2 etc). The reality star also chose to pin back her ears. Did you think she had odd ears? We are our worst critics.

Doesn’t it seem that Heidi is in hiding lately? She’s been REALLY quiet.

Guess Who Is Willing To Let His Kids Back On TV… For A Price?

Well… what do we have here? A defeated Jon Gosselin? It’s not so fun when everyone stops caring about what you do, right Jon? Looks like the reality dad is willing to let his kids start filmingJon and Kate Plus 8‘ again. All of a sudden it isn’t toxic for their lives.

Oh wait. One small thing. It’s nothing really. Just a teeny tiny request.

TLC has to DROP the lawsuit they have against Jon in order for him to allow it.

So, it never was about protecting the children because if that was the case, NOTHING would make him put the kids back on air. It was and always will be about Jon and what he can gain from the deal.

TLC probably will probably agree. But don’t expect that Ed Hardy lover to be back on the show.

You can be sure that if the kids come back to TLC it will be only with Kate, not with Jon. And there’s no guarantee that will happen either.”

I’ve said it before. I miss Kate’s kids on TV. I only started watching it last season when all this drama started. But there is something about watching those children together experiencing life. You fall in love instantly with each and every one of them. Will you watch the show if it returns minus Jon?
