Jon Gone from Jon & Kate Plus 8

Jon Gosselin says he hated being on TV and wanted to return to a regular life. At least the TV part has come true.  TLC announced that Gosselin will no longer appear on the reality series and the show will be renamed Kate Plus 8. According to, sources say there was no way the show could continue to portray him as a doting dad when he was cavorting across Europe and partying with bikini clad women in Las Vegas. “Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill said in a statement. “The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers.” Kate Plus 8 will premiere on November 2.
