Jon and Kate plus 8 on trial: Jon Gosselin is SUING for Custody of the children, PLUS Kate is a crappy dancer on DWTS

April 8, 2010

That is a lot of humans to have running around in your gut...where do they park the clown car?

My first thought is good for him.  He is their dad, even though he was tricked into having all of the kids.  He is trying to step up and hopefully follow the advice of Ed O.G. and the Bulldogs.

But, in the back of my mind, I hope that he is not using them as a paycheck, since I really do not see what other discernible skills he has.

Jon Gosselin sues Kate for custody of 8 children

READING, Pa. — Jon Gosselin has sued ex-wife Kate for primary custody of their eight children.

The former reality TV star also asked the Berks County Court today to review his child support obligation.

Gosselin’s attorney, Anthony List, has previously accused Kate Gosselin of neglecting the children because she appears on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” a charge her attorney rejected as “patently false.”

In court papers, Jon Gosselin says his ex-wife “abuses” her authority when it comes to scheduling visits with the kids. He also claims an arbitrator failed to require Kate to provide documentation of the children’s expenses.

The Gosselins appeared on the TLC reality show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” until their marriage fell apart last year. They divorced in December.

It gets better.  Jon is potentially rigging the votes, so she can stay on longer and strengthen his case for getting custody back, since nannies are taking care of the children.

Kate Gosselin somehow is still competing on “Dancing With the Stars.” Just not for the Miss Congeniality title.

Us Weekly reports Gosselin hasn’t become chummy with any fellow competitors, doesn’t attend the Monday taping afterparties and even has show staffers talk to her only through her bodyguard.

Bodyguard, yes. And remember, Gosselin is not the female contestant facing death threats.

“When the show needs to contact Kate, they go through Steve (Neild),” says a production source per Us. “She acts like a major celebrity.”

Gosselin, with partner Tony Dolovani, performed a grim-faced paso doble Monday after which judge Bruno Tonioli said she looked like a “super (rhymes with glitch) from hell.” Nevertheless, 80-year-old astronaut Buzz Aldrin was sent packing on Tuesday’s show.

According to Perez Hilton, Gosselin shrugs off the vitriol. He quotes her as saying, “I don’t really worry about what other people say because I know it’s me who has to feed my kids and take care of them, so that’s where my focus is all the time.”

Ha ha ha, snorts her ex.

TMZ reports Jon Gosselin voted for her — possibly to regain full custody of their twins and sextuplets.

U.S. Attorney Anthony F. List, representing Papa G, was expected to file legal papers Wednesday in Pennsylvania to change the custody arrangement because Mama G is using three nannies to watch the brood while she and Neild share adjoining hotel rooms in Hollywood.

“You can’t be a coast-to-coast primary parent,” says List, who also reportedly voted for her.

There is some humor in it all.  Her dance partner was driven to quit working with her!  Poor chap must have been forced back, because they danced (so I am told, since I am not watching the show)

Kate Gosselin to Tony on ‘Dancing With The Stars’: ‘A lot of people quit on me in life’

Yikes. Dancing With The Stars “shopping cart” Kate Gosselin reduced her partner Tony Dovolani first to quivering rage and then to quivering apology before their jive-in-every-sense dance on Monday night.

In the taped rehearsal segment before their performance, Kate was shown asking Tony for more detailed instructions, and after a while, Dovolani expressed his frustration to the camera by saying, “Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate.” Getting hot under the collar, he chafed, “I’ve never been questioned in my teaching,” and finally: “I quit.” He walked out, while Kate looked at her camera and said, over and over, “I don’t get it.”

Wait a minute: This was a Monday night, on TV, and Kate Gosselin was making a male partner feel frustration and rage at her constant hectoring? For a second there, I thought ABC had unearthed unseen footage from TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8.

After a commercial, more tape rolled and we saw Tony come back and apologize. Kate “forgave” him by saying, “A lot of people quit on me in life.”

Then they danced to the Elton John hit, “I’m Still Standing.”

Follow, I am not Jon, so you actually have to listen to won't be standing for long...

Here is what one of the judges thought about Kate as a dancer…

Dancing With the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli didn’t hold back when discussing Kate Gosselin’s less-than-graceful moves on Wednesday’s Lopez Tonight: “Kate is pretty dreadful. She’s crap,” he told host George Lopez.

Tough reviews aside, the outspoken Italian admitted the mom of eight is “a tough cookie” for facing all the criticism. “She gets it in the face, she comes back and she tries to get better,” he said. “[But] it doesn’t really work.”

Tonioli also said Gosselin, who has squabbled with partner Tony Dovolani, turns the show into “our own disaster movie” on a daily basis. “2012 is nothing compared to the catastrophe she produces,” he said.

Damn, disaster show?  I might have to tune in to see that…

    Jon Gosselin ought to be out looking for a damn job and Kate Gosselin’s ass ought to be at home when her kids need her the most.

    These kids are grow up to be screwed up and somehow impaired in a number of areas.

    Love MTV’s take on it though for the young adolescent female . 16 & Pregnant what more can one say ?

    This is the real message that the US wants to foster across the world to show what paragons of moralists they are .
