If TLC really wants to make some good money, they'd sell a pay per view fight where Kimbo Slice just beats the snot out of Jon Gosselin for about 10 minutes. Kimbo doesn't win many of his MMA bouts these days, it seems, but he's still ratings gold, and I'm sure he could handle Jon easily enough.

I've never watched Jon & Kate Plus 8, 152 articles a day about these people relatively few are watching anymore has me annoyed enough where I'd consider springing $40 on a pay per view event where Jon is beaten senseless (or even more senseless than he already is).

The readers digest version of the update is that apparently Jon is a bit testy after TLC announced it was dropping  his name from the show which starting next month will be named Kate Plus 8, and that while Jon would still appear it would be in a limited role.

So a day later,  Gosselin had his lawyer fire off a letter to TLC:  "Effective immediately, no production crews are to enter Jon's family home for any reason.  In the event that anyone enters the marital property, Jon Gosselin will notify the local authorities to effectuate police action against any trespassers."

Additionally Jon is on the rampage about the show being basically ruining his life and with his lawyer as his mouthpiece said: "Jon realized his family was like a train wreck, so he decided to put the brakes on the divorce and on the show" ... because if he didn't the family would be in a mortal accident,"  Gosselin's attorney Mark Jay Heller said.

TLC said it has temporarily suspended direct filming of the children "pending further conversations between both parents."

The network also said "We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC."

Kate says she is "saddened and confused"  by Jon's behavior.
