On Sunday, Jon Gosselin was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey for the special, Where Are They Now?, during which he opened up about his family, marriage and the reality show that started it all. He dispelled rumors that he cheated on Kate by saying, “My family knows the truth.”
Fifty Shades Of Grey is running behind schedule, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher seemed poised to finalize their split, and Avengers fans get to see how much they actually know about Quicksilver.
There are times when you wonder whatever happened to stars that were huge 15, 10, or even five years ago. Longevity in the fame game just isn’t in the cards for everyone, but that doesn’t stop some people from trying a tad bit too hard to keep themselves in the public eye.
Yesterday, The Gossip Table reported that North West was not making her runway debut in Paris. In fact, her parents have left her under the care of Kris Jenner. And Jenner has strict grand-parenting instructions: No photographs. So that means the tweet-happy family has to take it easy while around the youngest Kardashian member.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian continues to work on her post-pregnancy look. Not only is she blonde but she’s sporting a slimmer yet curvy body. While visiting Paris, she’s taking the time to showcase her new look and making sure that people take notice. Kim was spotted talking to Andre Leon Talley as she continues to find a way onto the cover of Vogue.
Speaking of parenting, Jon Gosselin calls in to offer some thoughts of his own…
Did Jon Gosselin fire a gun at a photographer? Is Chad Michael Murray a single man again? What can J. J. Abrams confirm about the new Star Wars movie?
Gisele Bundchen reveals how she learned English, Chris Hemsworth doesn’t see many nude scenes in his future, and Patrick Swayze‘s mother dies.
Bradley Cooper gets romantic in Paris, Alec Baldwin steps out with his baby daughter, and Shailene Woodley publicly debuts her new ‘do at the VMAs.
Some fathers know best, and other fathers know hookers. Some fathers play golf, and others play the field. Some dads mow the lawn, and others mow down mailboxes with their Mercedes while drinking and driving. Some fathers make plans to take their wives out for dinner, while others make plans to “take their wives out.” And then there are some dads who pretend they’re not dads at all! Think we’re kidding? We wish.
It’s safe to say that not all fathers know best. Just look at Michael Lohan, Jon Gosselin, Mel Gibson, and other guys we wouldn’t trust with a pair of scissors, not to mention a kid! So join us this Father’s Day while we count down the 15 worst pops of all, ranked by the standard unit of bad dads: the Michael Lohan. If your face is in the gallery below, you’re probably not getting a tie for Father’s Day this year.

Ding dong the witch is cancelled! After six years as the scariest reality matriarch this side of Kris Jenner, TLC has decided to pull the plug on Kate Gosselin and her army of cuteness. The network has issued a statement that they have decided not to renew Kate Plus 8, a series which follows the wacky antics of an exploited family disintegrating in front of a cold, unflinching camera lens. Kate took to her twitter to confirm the end of the show’s stretch after nearly 150 episodes. “TLC cancelled it. I’m sorry. We’ve had a great run! Six years of whirlwind fun-filled adventures.” Yet she’s looking ahead to the future, expressing a desire to do some “motivational speaking, book writing…and maybe even some dating!” She insists it’s not an end, but a new beginning. “Remember,” she wrote, “This is not a goodbye. I prefer to say, ‘See you around.’” We prefer “Goodbye.”
But she’s right, it isn’t totally over for Kate and the gang. TLC plans to “check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.” No word on whether daddy Jon, who bitterly split from Kate last year, will be invited back as well. But he did reveal to Radar Online that he was very relieved at the cancellation. “I hope that this will bring more privacy to my children and that they can get the proper attention they need for any personal issues they might have in the future.” Or they’ll just make it into a spin-off series, Reality Rehab.

Sure, Kate Gosselin still has her TV show and Jon’s smoking on someone’s roof, but who’s worrying about the innocent bystanders most affected by the reality TV couple’s legendary meltdown? Of course, we’re referring to their marriage counselors. White Haven, Pennsylvania’s Creative Energy Commons is suing Kate Gosselin for $10,476 after the mother of 8 asked one of their doctors to fly to LA twice in early 2009 (for “marriage counseling”), and then refused to pay for the services or travel expenses. Maybe she assumed TLC would pick up the tab?
Timing-wise, these visits would have been around the time Kate was on her book-promoting tour while Jon was partying with co-eds in Pennsylvania. Doesn’t that seem like eons ago? Even more interestingly, the same doctor, Sylvia Lafair, was described in June 2010 as Jon Gosselin’s “life coach.” How come the bill didn’t come up around then? Maybe they were waiting until the whole divorce ordeal was over…to remind us of it all over again.
