Recently, the world was blessed with the knowledge that Kate Gosselin will be returning to television for a one-hour TLC special with her adorable kids. One person who's not happy? (Besides you.) You guessed, her ex-husband, Jon. According to a source, "Jon thinks it is a really bad idea for his kids. Jon feels he has his kids' best interest at heart." And the sad thing? Kate didn't, and didn't have to, get any permission from Jon whatsoever about putting their eight children on TV again. "Jon didn't have to give his consent for their kids to tape the TLC special," a source said. "Kate's not obligated to tell him anything."
Kinda sad. As much as I don't like Jon either, a big decision like putting your young children on television kind of seems like it should be made between two parents, not just one.
Since he and Kate parted ways, Jon has been extremely vocal about not wanting his children on television. When he heard there was talk of another reality show for Kate and the kids he said, "I'll fight it. I don't need the money, I'll just go to work. Because I fought so hard to get my kids off of television."
