Jon tries to make deal with TLC

Jon Gosselin is hoping to use his children to make a deal with former employers TLC. He has agreed to let TLC film his children again .... but only if the network drops the lawsuit it has against him, reports. In 2009, TLC had filed a breach of contract claim against him and won a preliminary injunction, keeping him from engaging in any media appearances. Don't get too excited though, because even if TLC lifts the Jon ban, don't think that he will make a 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' comeback. "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," a source said.
A judge ruled in December that Gosselin has been restricted from making money off his reality TV fame and is no longer receiving a TLC paycheck. His trial is scheduled to being in the Spring.

"Photos of Jon Gosselin with scores of bikini-clad women was inconsistent with our image brand of our show," TLC Chief Operating Office Edward Sabin said in court.

This statement was issued by TLC shortly after. "The Court has validated our view that Mr. Gosselin has a valid, binding contract and that he has breached it repeatedly. Step one – getting the court to order Mr. Gosselin to comply with his contractual obligations – has been accomplished. Any further breaches going forward will be violations of a court order. We look forward to the next phase of the litigation, which is to pursue our claim for damages resulting from Mr. Gosselin's numerous breaches."

Gosselin's attorney Mark Heller threatens us by saying, "You haven't seen the last of Jon Gosselin."

Just yesterday Kate Gosselin announced she would be co-hosting 'The View' again next month.  Seems like the race is back on.  Hope you enjoyed your Gosselin break because it is over!
