Jon Gosselin Speaks Out About The Cancellation Of 'Kate Plus 8' — Says He Is 'Relieved' His Kids Will No Longer Be On TV!

Tue, August 16, 2011 9:18am EST by 3 Comments

The battle of words continues between the two famous exes, as Jon expresses his relief about his children finally being off the air– “I hope they can have more private moments.”

Though the pair may have once enjoyed  a happy marriage with eight kids and a reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, those days have long been gone since the couple endured a nasty divorce back in 2009. And now Jon Gosselin is smirking at his ex-wife Kate Gosselin about the cancellation of Kate Plus 8.

“I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future,” Jon told Radar Online,

He also says that he found out about the cancellation by a “press release,” but doesn’t seem too surprised. “Contracts have to end at some point. I think everything had run its course and it was time to come to an end anyways.”

As for his ex, Jon added in some snide remarks. “I have no clue what her next move is,” Jon said. “I hope she dedicates more time to the kids now and I wish her the best as she goes forward with whatever career she wants to pursue.”

It may not have been the classiest of all moves, but I don’t completely disagree with you, Jon!

What do YOU think Kate will do next, HollywoodLifers?

I had to read this again to see if I got it right.Jon is glad the kids no longer have to WORK…and wishes the beast{ my word…not Jons” kate the best in what she tries to grift next? Again…grift my word…he wishes her well on what ever career she seeks. HUM….how is Jon being snarky?
Jon says…I hope she gives the kids the time they deserve…and good luck in whatever she does from here…REALLY?? Snarky? Anything for a story huh?
This man can never get a break….someone is always looking for someone to blame.No matter what he says or does….he will be the most evil! I guess huh? Kate told him to get lost…do whatever JUST be back in time to film the show…The marriage was over ALTHO Jon begged for kate to get help…to save the marriage…Kate wasent after a marriage….she was after selling the kids to the highest bidder.Kate wanted fame and money more than a family.BUT yet…its Jon who messed it up when he gave up after 10 years….when kate told him BY BY” Kate all but said…money matters the most.
Please…get a grip and do some research!

Since you were NOT the one to give this interview to JON…How would you know what faces he made ? You took lines from others who spoke to Jon.I see nothing wrong with Jon saying he is glad that HIS kids can be just that…KIDS now.Not working everyday off from school…weekends…or even summer breaks.
The man wishes his kids well…he hopes they get the attention they need…which has been made so pubilicly by kate.Kids are out of control and have been kicked out of school…Kate said the kids were NOT phased by the divorce…so where are these problems coming form?HUM…its all up to kate.So i’m guessing kate is at fault.
Jon could do nothing…the court told him so…even tho JON tried to tell the court the kids needed him….It didnt matter…he was just the dad.So there we go…it was in kates hands and she chose fame over the well-being of the children.Now look how that has turned out!

Making up facts, as usual. HollywoodBaby, did you sit face-to-face to do the interview with Jon? Were you on the phone to judge the tone of his voice? No? So STFU! How did you know his comments were snide or if he was smirking?! All he cares about is the Gosselin 8 being OFF of TV & having some bit of privacy and getting the help their gonna need…because they will. As for her future, he wished her the best. How was that snide?! Dumb a#s journalist.
