“Law & Order” Rips Octomom And Jon And Kate Gosselin From The Headlines

There are few things on TV that I love more than a “ripped from the headlines” episode of “Law & Order,” and tonight’s episode, airing at 10 p.m., sounds like such a doozy that I’ll have to figure out how to see it and “Paranormal Activity.” The drama that is Jon and Kate Gosselin and OctoMom Nadya Suleman gets the L&O treatment as fictional versions of them battle for a reality show about their broods (there were almost 20 kids on set). And, of course, there’s a murder. If you’re an NBC watcher, I’m not spoiling anything for you by telling you the Kate character gets offed. As a result, the regular characters and my man Jack McCoy end up intertwined in the strange world of reality TV. And one has to be interviewed as part of the show to get some evidence. “[The episode is] kind [of] about the insidious nature of reality TV and kind of our fascination [with it],” said executive producer Rene Balcer to AccessHollywood.com. And that sounds almost as good as some of my favorite reality shows. [NBC New York] Keep reading »

Bad Celebrity Parents: Jon And Kate Gosselin Signal The End Of The Mel Gibson Daddy Fantasy

Jonand Kate Gosselinbrought this on. They won’t go away, and they’ve dragged their bad parenting blame game so far into the bright center of the media spotlight that it doesn’t even matter I never watched the show. I know who they are and occasionally find myself taking sides, which I shouldn’t. They both seem crazy. Poor kids are so “Truman Show”‘d, there’s probably no hope. But, they did get me thinking about all my old fantasies about having famous parents. The old “I’m really adopted, but one day my real parents will find me, and then everything’s gonna change around here … ” fantasy. You know what I’m talking about… Keep reading »

Kate Gosselin Plays Mama To The Paparazzi


Kate Gosselin apparently thinks the whole world is her spawn. Well, not really, but she pretended she does on Jay Leno’s “JMZ” last night. The infamous mommy scolded three photogs who were taking pictures of her while she was loading groceries into her car. She made them stop, saying, “Hey, what did Mommy say? I asked you to stop taking pictures.” One paparazzo got a time-out and another was forced into a car seat and given a stuffed animal. The vid’s funny, but we knew it was fake as soon as we saw that Kate only bought three bags of groceries. Dude, she has eight kids! Keep reading »

Jon Gosselin Takes Fam’s Money, Plans Grossest Reality Show Ever


Jon Gosselin is quickly becoming the guy I would most like to throw something at. After his “I want Kate back” and “The show is bad for my kids” revelations last week, in an interview with Meredith Viera on “Today” this morning, Kate revealed that Jon has cleaned out their joint bank account. “He took $230,000 of the $231,000 we had,” she said. “I have a stack of bills. The last thing I wanted was to do this show and end up not being able to pay our bills.” This isn’t the first time a huge withdrawal has been made from the couple’s account. Kate says she squirreled away $100K from the account earlier in the year, but put it back as required by the couple’s separation requirement. As we speak, Kate’s attorneys are in court, trying to force Jon to return the money. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

The Top 10 Most Shocking Celebrity Breakups!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly donezo. Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman. After three years of on-again, off-again for Jessica and Justin, all it took was some sightings with the feisty singer to launch a truckload of rumors. [Terra] Though they might not be over IRL, it reminded us of some other shocking celebrity breakups! Keep reading »

Newsflash: Jon Gosselin Desperately Trying To Stall Divorce From Kate

Stop the divorce presses! We’ve heard via Popeater that Jon Gosselin has had a change of heart and now no longer wants to divorce Kate, who just a few weeks ago he accused of verbally abusing him and said he “despised.” Jon’s lawyer has put in a request that the divorce be stalled for 90 days. “I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated…I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon,” he’s supposedly told In Touch magazine. “[This time will] enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication…Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family—not destroy it.”

I don’t know, buddy. The skeptic in me says that the media frenzy has died down and he got the word that TLC was changing the show’s name from “Jon & Kate Plus Eight” to “Kate Plus Eight,” and asked himself, “What can I do to stay in the spotlight? Begging for forgiveness could work.” [In Touch via Popeater] Keep reading »

Look Who’s Talking Now: Kate Gosselin’s New TV Show

Kate Gosselin came onto the television scene with her husband Jon when “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ began airing in 2008. Now, after a stint on “The View,” she’s ready to join a new panel talk show, aimed at working moms. “I’ve been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?” Gosselin told the audience at the Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, NC, where she was answering questions and signing copies of her books. According to TVGuide.com, the panel will also include Food Network host Paula Deen and morning show vets Rene Syler (“The Early Show”) and Lee Woodruff (“Good Morning America”).

In our opinion, Kate isn’t the (only) reality star who should be given a talk show. A few of our suggestions after the jump. Keep reading »
