Jon Gosselin Orders TLC to Stop Filming His Children, Apologizes to Kate, and Wants to Delay Divorce

Jon Gosselin's Epiphany: Believable or Not?

Apparently a light went off in Jon Gosselin's head but the timing is a bit questionable. He appeared on Larry King Live last night saying that he had an epiphany and is demanding a cease-and-desist order upon TLC to stop filming the children for Jon & Kate Plus 8 — this after TLC announced that they were dropping the father of eight from the hit show. Jon, who recently claimed that he despises his soon-to-be ex-wife Kate, admitted to making a few mistakes including saying that the children are having fun while taping episodes. King asked Gosselin if he made a lot of money from the series and Jon said, "No", but when King asked how much Gosselin made, the papa replied, "Maybe a million dollars, $500,000 after taxes."

Jon's television appearances do not seem to be helping his case in the courts or with loyal viewers who are having a hard time believing that he is speaking from the heart and not the wallet. We can only hope that Jon is truly putting his children first, but his actions are suspect. What do you think of Jon's epiphany — believe it or not?

His wallet is about to get much lighter And that's the only epiphany this tool is ever going to have.

While I would like to believe he has realized it not such a good idea to have your family on weekly TV, I don't believe him at all. This guy seems like he has a really inflated ego. It is kind of sad that an almost middle-aged, kind of pudgy, balding father of 8 kids is running around like he is 18 again.

I'm not sure which Gosslin parent I dislike more. They both need to stop appearing on tv (he on Larry King, her lawyer on the Today Show -- last night and this morning, respectievly), and work on their family.

He is an a**, I agree. It is not a coincidence that he wants to stop production now that he is not a part of it. It is an adult temper tantrum that he is having. (IF YOU WON'T PLAY WITH ME THEN YOU CAN'T PLAY WITH ANYONE!!!) What a baby.

This guy has become such an a** I can't stand it. He has no regard for his kids. I actually think it may be detrimental to the kids to stop filing all of a sudden because they have grown up with the production crew and love them like family. It's a bit of stability and predictability during the divorce. Now they don't even have that.

I don't think his concern is for his children. In this situation, he is only worried about himself and the money and fame he will lose out on. He wants to stop the show because he doesn't want kate to get the limelight or more money that he won't have access to.

I believe that Jon wants money, and not to be cut off from the TLC family. I also believe that he wants to end the show, and protect his kids. I think this guy is teetering on the wrong thing vs the right thing to do. Cmon Jon, be a man and do the right thing, I believe in you!
