Kate Gosselin responds to Jon's attempts to halt production of "Kate Plus 8."

kate gosselin taping with TLC

This morning, we told you about Jon Gosselin demanding that his family's hit TLC show cease production immediately.

"Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason," a letter from his attorney to TLC said. "In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."

In response, Kate had this to say:

"I'm saddened and confused by Jon's public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children and was taping on Friday with the kids. I check in regularly with each of the kids to be sure they want to participate in and continue with the show and will continue to do so. I do the show for my family because I believe it provides us opportunities we wouldn't otherwise have. Jon used to share that belief until as recently as the day the network announced the name change of the show and indicated that Jon would have a lesser role in the show. It appears that Jon's priority is Jon and his interests. My priority remains our children and their well being."

What do you think of Kate's response?

Selfish little man.

Katie October 1, 2009, 1:55 PM

Does anyone care what she has to say? What kind of a mother of 8 is more concerned over her tv show than taking care of her kids? Please. This media ho is disgusting.

GO home KATE.

He was ok with it before, now that they booted him out he wants to stop it. Self cetered SOB

OMG. Can’t she ever shut up?? Mother of the year. What a joke.

i have 3 beautiful girls. they are my entire life and it sickens me to see another supposed mother abandon her children. this woman is just horrible. stop showing kate on tv.

You go girl!

It seemed very suspicious to everyone that he suddenly had issues with ‘privacy’ once he was removed from the show. Funny how lack of his funding turns into “I’m concerned about my kids”.

The more he speaks, the more of a fool he appears.

Why can’t Kate just say she WILL allow the cameras in when she’s there, despite his protests. Doesn’t she own the house too?

both parents need some headwork….the kids are just unwitting victims of two narcissistic freaks!see what reality tv is doing to our culture?

Holy cow. The Gosselins just can’t get off the tv. It’s going to take a major tragedy with those kids to get anyone to pay attention to their family. Why isn’t anyone doing anything to stop this? TLC - shame, shame, shame on you!!

No matter what his intentions are, I think he’s doing the right thing. It took longer than it should have for someone to point out how bad the show is for the kids, especially now when they are going through so much. Kate needs to realize that just because she asks her kids if they like doing it and they say yes, that doesn’t automatically mean they do. The show needs to be cancelled at least until after the divorce is final and the kids have time to heal.

I think Kate is riiculous in saying that the TV show is good for her kids. She claims to check in with the kids about being on the show. For crying out loud—wake up Kate! All the kids want to do is please you. Of course they are going to agree with you to stay on the show. Anyone can tell you that cameras in your face everyday all day is not healthy—no even for adults.

But in Kates defense…I think she has to do this show. Who the h.LL is going to pay to support these children? Jon is such a lame jerk who does not work. She can’t rely on his finanical support

I think they both need help mentally

nidia October 1, 2009, 2:09 PM

i think kate is a good mother she does everything for her children. john is a jerk who cant stand that his wife is way above him what a looser. someone tell him to get a job.

I don’t think anyone has the right to criticize Kate. Unless you have 8 kids and know what it is like, you have no idea.

justme October 1, 2009, 2:34 PM

I think both parents need to step back and take a deep breath. this is not healthy for the children. put your children first Jon and Kate.

you go girl. this is your life and your children life. I think you should keep that in mind about your children coming first. do’nt go off track becuse your husband off track. please sit down and listen to him,. Just the two of you , get some one to take care of the children . So you and Jon can talk. that is important. You can get back on track if you want too.

anonymous October 1, 2009, 2:44 PM

he should want his kids to have their privacy thats why he wants off the show. its time for these children to have a normal life. if Kate still wants to be in tv shows let her but leave the children out.
