TLC-Your Ass in Court: Jon Gosselin Sued For Breach of Contract By Network

Saturday, October 17, 2009

Jon Gosselin hasn't played by the rules as an exclusive employee of TLC, the network alleges, accusing the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad of appearing on other shows for pay and making unauthorized disclosures about the TLC show.

As a result, the King of Pimps is being sued for breach of contract.

The lawsuit, filed today in Maryland's Circuit Court of Montgomery County, says that in June, in recognition of "the Gosselins' difficult personal circumstances," TLC asked both to refrain from making public statements about each other.

A 'cooling off' period was negotiated and was supposed to have put a lid on Jon for at least 45 days. But he went on to appear regularly on ET, The Insider and other shows to discuss life, the show, Kate being an abusive monster, etc.

The suit also accuses Jon of selling photographic rights to various celebrity gossip magazines and other media outlets, also in violation of Jon's TLC contract.

Moreover, dude didn't show up for work September 24 as required, even given six days' notice. Hey, he's got things to see and mediocre girls to do, okay?

A Jon Gosselin Fashion Statement

Just when you think Jon Gosselin can't become even more of a mess ...

The suit is seeking from Gosselin unspecified compensatory damages and demanding he return income gained as a result of his breaches of the agreement.

TLC also wants him to shut the g*d d*mn h*ll up going forward. They didn't use that language, but believe us, that's the message they're trying to send.

"The network has been trying privately and patiently for months to get Jon to honor the contract he signed and to comply with obligations relating to public appearances and statements," TLC said. "Those efforts have been unsuccessful."

Team Jon had no immediate comment.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the show would be renamed Kate Plus 8 and feature little-to-no Jon. He responded by taking legal action to stop TLC from filming his eight kids for the show, citing an "epiphany" that it's bad for them.

Complete BS as that may be, TLC no choice but to comply and announced that the show will stop filming new episodes next month. Its future is up in the air.


Paul Wesley Didn't Go to the Prom

What's the deal with hot vampires striking out with women?!?

Earlier this week, Robert Pattinson complained that he can't get a date.

Now, in an interview with Teen Vogue, Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley tells the magazine he wasn't always the most popular kid in school.

"I definitely wasn't invited to any of the cool parties," he said. "Girls didn't like me that much. I didn't even go to my prom."

What else did Wesley have to say? A few excerpts from the article:

On the success of The Vampire Diaries: "I've had cameos on some cool shows. But it's nice to now be doing something that I'm involved in from the beginning."

On interacting with the Twilight Saga cast while shooting in Vancouver: "The cast was staying at our hotel. We saw them everywhere and hung out all the time. They're actually really nice people."

On comparisons to that film franchise: "They have vampires and high school romance in common, but that's about it."


Balloon Boy Throws Up on Today Show; PR Hoax May Make Colorado Taxpayers Do the Same

Falcon Heene, who gained instant notoriety and a misnomer of a nickname (Balloon Boy) yesterday, is thankfully safe and sound, having never drifted away in his father's homemade helium craft as was originally believed.

But the six-year-old Colorado boy does have the flu.

As his family did the morning show circuit on Friday, Today viewers saw Balloon Boy throw up on camera as his siblings and mother recoiled in abject terror.

Easily an 8.5 on the unintentional comedy scale.

What's considerably less funny is the increasing suspicion that the incident, which captivated the nation and resulted in millions of dollars prematurely spent trying to rescue Falcon Heene on the fly, may have all been a hoax.

Richard Heene cradles one ill Balloon Boy.

Father Richard Heene tried to deny this on Today, saying he has nothing to gain from it. But as the man spoke, offering no clear answers to why Falcon himself seemingly confimed the hoax on CNN last night, his son barfed.

The cost to Colorado taxpayers is that sickening.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Department will conduct an investigation into the getaway balloon caper. They have not decided if it's a criminal investigation.

One reason for suspicion? Falcon Heene and family were on ABC's Wife Swap last spring, and have pitched reality shows to multiple networks since. Fishy.

Here's Falcon Heene, a.k.a. Balloon Boy, and his family addressing the subject on the Today show. The vomiting takes place around the six-minute mark ...


Bethenny Frankel: Reality TV Revolves Around Me!

She's starred on The Real Housewives of New York City for two seasons, is signed up for a third, and will likely receive her own spin-off series.

But while it may seem as though Bethenny Frankel bows at the altar of reality TV, the socialite claims it's actually the other way around.

"I'm not really revolving my life around reality TV; reality TV is revolving its life around me," she told E! News, referencing the constant arguing on the aformentioned Bravo series:

"It's like high school. In high school, you had time to argue and that was your whole life: the drama, the mean girls and the cool girls and all that. I don't have the time for the girl trouble right now... catfighting is not what I can really spend my time doing."

Especially because she loves cats. And all animals. So much so, Frankel is set to go naked for PETA.

As for new Housewives Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert, Bethenny could only say the following about the former:

"We have a mutual friend, and I remember meeting her. So bring it on. I'm excited for new women if that's the case."


Jessica Biel: Joining the Twilight Saga Cast?!?

Jessica Biel co-stars in Valentine's Day with a number of A-listers, including Taylor Lautner.

In a recent interview with MTV, the beautiful actress made it sound like this won't be the last time she's paired with Lautner on the big screen.

Asked if she's consider joining the cast of the Twilight Saga, Biel didn't rule it out. She said:

"Well, I'm clearly familiar with the films... I know the idea of what it's about. I mean, maybe [I'd be in the next 'Twilight' film]. That would be lovely. I am not opposed to playing a vampire."

Of course, Biel hasn't been asked to play one, either. But is this a cast addition you'd want to see? Who would she play in the franchise?
