What happens when you subtract Jon from Jon & Kate Plus 8? Well the answer’s really simple, you get Kate Plus 8, and according to reports that is exactly what happened. Read more about it here.
Ever since the scandal surrounding the reality show became a main focus of newspapers, gossip columns, blogs, and tabloids everywhere, Jon has been wanting to get out of his contract with TLC, and it looks as if his wish may finally get granted soon.
The name has been reduced to 3/5 of what it once was, as it will now be known as simply “Kate Plus 8”. When it starts back up in November, the series will focus on Kate handling the stresses of being a single mother for the first time, and the former patriarch of the family will only be making appearances occasionally.
Network president Eileen O’Neill commented about the changes the program is facing, saying in a recent statement that:
“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.”
She then went on to explain that the “family has evolved” and that they are trying to “evolve with it”.
A tipster told E! News that Jon wants to distance himself as much as he possibly can from the network that he believes took advantage of him and his family. Still under contractual obligation, he is required to do interviews and such for TLC with his most recent being last weekend, but according to E’s inside source he hopes that it will be his last.
