TLC Files Breach of Contract Suit Against Jon

Just when we thought that TLC might just show a shred of decency, they go and do something like this.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in Maryland, alleges that Gosselin hasn't met the obligations of his contract as an exclusive employee, has appeared on other programs for pay and made unauthorized disclosures about the show.

one of many stories

Why no lawsuit against Kate? She's been on about 1000% more programs than Jon. I don't think any of us are going to believe she didn't get paid for all those Larry King or The View appearances. The reality of this lawsuit boils down to one thing. Jon spoke out and is telling the dirty little secrets TLC doesn't want the public to know, or rather, making "unauthorized disclosures."

Hopefully the other families on TLC are paying close attention to this debacle and remember it when it comes time to renew their own shows.
