Jon Gosselin Pulls Gun On Paparazzi

Former TV dad Jon Gosselin, who gained fame on the reality TV show Jon + Kate Plus 8, admitted he pulled a gun and fired a warning shot in the air when a photographer got too close to his Pennsylvania home.

"I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew," Jon told gossip blog TMZ. He said he fired the shot into the air to scare the photographer into leaving his property, not to hurt her: "It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property," he said.

After butting heads with the show's producers over unauthorized endorsement placements, TLC has decided to take Jon Gosselin off Jon & Kate Plus 8.

The show will focus on Kate as a single mother of twins girls and quintuplets in Kate plus 8.

I've only seen one episode of the show (just to see what the hype was about) and Jon comes across as an overbearing jerk who would much rather be chasing skirts than minding his own kids.

Moments after TLC announced the news that the show was moving on without him, Jon's attorney submitted paperwork to a Pennsylvania court requesting a delay in his divorce proceedings. The reasons are obvious: 1. Jon loses any say so over his family's appearance on the show if the divorce goes through, and 2. Jon doesn't have a job.

According to USA Today, Jon's attorneys submitted this statement to a Pennsylvania court approved arbitrator asking for a delay:

“Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family — not destroy it.”

I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.”

Some of you are familiar with Kate Gosselin as the mother of 8 kids on the wildly popular reality TV show Jon & Kate Plus 8.

In case you weren't aware, the show is a runaway #1 hit and Kate is featured on the cover of just about every magazine on the newsstand. Not because she's a blonde with a hawt bod, but because her husband cheated on her with the babysitter.

To be honest, I'm not sure who he cheated with, and don't much care.

I'm more interested in how a woman over 30, who delivered 8 children has such a great shape with a flat tummy? It couldn't be crunches or pilates because after age 30, subcutaneous fat tends to settle around the midsection by default. And no amount of ab crunches will get rid of it.

So I'm guessing (since Kate is a RN) she had some sort of surgical intervention like Usher's wife Tameka Foster-Raymond tried to have done before that unfortunate accident in Brazil.

Some chicks (like Tameka) can afford to have liposuction performed to get rid of their fat rolls. But the rest of us have to make do by curtailing our diets (avoid white bread, white sugar, etc.), exercising and drinking plenty of water. Or drink Fennel tea to reduce the abdominal bloating that can add unwanted inches to our waistlines.

The fennel tea people aren't paying me to promote their products, so let Google be your friend.

UPDATE:

Loyal reader Crystal emailed to inform me that Kate had surgery a few years back:

...one of the viewers husband was a plastic surgeon and they offered do the procedure for free because they loved the show so much. They pretty much showed the whole procedure on one episode of the show and the before and after pics and she did have quite a bit of excess fat as her stomach was HUGE with the sextuplets
