Jon Gosselin (along with his new lawyer) was on Larry King Live last night regarding the whole “cease and desist” action against TLC and the shooting of what WAS his show Jon & Kate Plus 8/Kate Plus 8.
Some highlights of the appearance:
- Jon told Larry regarding his “sudden change of heart” about the filming of his children for the show: “I had an epiphany one day. I made mistakes. I’m here to apologize to Kate … I apologize to Hailey.” “I didn’t want to be the person I was any more. I had to take back my life….This show is not healthy for my kids…And I want it to stop.”
- “It’s not healthy for my kids to to be on the show. It’s detrimental to them.” – umm…SINCE WHEN? Wasn’t it JUST on your ABC interview last month that you said that filming your kids was NOT hurting them? Maybe now since the show has “let you go”…It’s not really YOUR show anymore, so now you suddenly feel differently?
- On TLC: “Heller claimed TLC made $186 million dollars during the last quarter mainly on the backs of “Jon & Kate.” And Jon said that his family made only $1 million all year from the cable channel.”
- Jon’s lawyer regarding the continuation of the show: “I guarantee you, it’s a done deal [that the show will not get back on the air]. There’s no judge in the country that will let those children work if the father is against it,” Heller said. “I can assure you and your viewers that this show will not go forward with these eight children.”
