TLC said on Tuesday that “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ will be renamed “Kate Plus 8″ due to recent changes in family dynamics.
On Thursday, octodad, Jon Gosselin told Larry King,”The reason I don’t think it’s healthy for them is that we’re going through a divorce right now, and I don’t think it should be televised and I think my kids should be taken off the show.”
“They’re 5 and 8 now; let them experience a normal childhood,” he said.
Gosselin’s lawyer predicts no judge would ever “subject the children to the show if the father believes it’s detrimental.”
It sounds like a legal maneuver to me. I think Gosselin and his lawyer will have to explain to a judge why it was ok for the children to be televised for the last four years and now it is not. And the show is the income source for the family.
