Gossip

With a new season of Jon & Kate Plus 8 set to start on Monday, May 25th, TLC is jumping in and taking advantage of the free publicity surrounding the series amidst rumors that Kate Gosselin is having an affair with the family’s bodyguard Steve Neild. Only 2 weeks after Jon Gosselin made headlines for a supposed affair with a 23 year old teacher from Pennsylvania, the accusations of more Gosselin infidelity arose. TLC is taking full advantage of the free publicity through their advertisements of the new season, and according to Good Morning America, haven’t even finished filming the first episode because they want to incorporate the latest tabloid headlines.

TLC’s preview of the first episode has Jon & Kate sitting together on their famous interview chair, with obvious tension in the environment, as Jon says, “I can’t just be Jon; I have to be Jon and Kate Plus 8” and a narrator promises that “Jon & Kate will face off for the first time” Jon & Kate Gosselin have done a pretty good job at staying out of the public eye and the tabloids during the filming of their first 4 seasons of the popular TLC show, so with infidelity in this relationship making headlines, could it be that TLC is requiring the couple to boost their ratings for the 5th season of the show to earn their rumored $60,000 an episode paycheque?

Kate Gosselin addressed the affair rumors recently stating that “The next story coming out from the animals that stalk us is about our security person and his family. Already the allegations they’re making about me are disgusting, unthinkable, unfathomable, and I am horrified.”

Tune into the new season of Jon & Kate Plus 8 to see how the plotline unfolds Monday, May 25th at 9pm.

With no new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy airing until April 23rd, the internet is full of speculation about what is next to come on Canada’s most popular television series!

Producers recently added two new guest stars to this season’s lineup, including Deborah Mooney of Everwood notoriety to play Owen Hunt who still seems to be struggling with the residual effects of practicing medicine in Iraq. With a Grey’s Anatomy wedding set to air on May 7th, perhaps the star is making a guest appearance on the show to make a motherly appearance at her son’s wedding to Cristina Yang. If it’s not Derek and Meredith tying the knot, this unlikely pair just might be the ones to say “I do”!

The rumor mill is also speculating that Grey’s Anatomy will keep Katherine Heigel on board for the next season by allowing her character Izzie’s cancer to enter remission. However, they can always pull the metasis card if the actress fails to stay in line!

Some of the Grey’s Anatomy gossipers still believe that we will see the last of TR Knight’s character George, at least as a full-time character on the show, after this season. The consensus seems to be that George will join the ranks of the military to practice medicine after another quick-thinking OR maneuver, only to return in a guest spot.

With no closure to any of the above questions until the next episode on April 23rd, make sure you tune into CTV in Canada for the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

Idol fans might already be aware of a favorite returning to the stage, with the rumor that Grammy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson has filmed a pre-taped performance for the show. A newest celebrity addition to the Idol stage will have big shoes, or rather, cowboy boots to fill (if she remains true to her country roots) when Miley Cyrus appears on an upcoming episode of American Idol.

While American Idol has yet to confirm if Hannah Montana’s alter-ego will be performing on the Idol stage, Miley Cyrus herself is the one responsible for the rumor that she’ll make an appearance on American Idol. After Tweeting that she was getting ready to pre-tape her stage performance on the American Idol stage, the starlet revealed that she would appear on the hit show during April 15th’s episode.

Fans of American Idol and Miley Cyrus will have to tune into American Idol, on CTV in Canada to confirm if the rumors are true, as producers of the show will neither confirm nor deny which celebrity guests will hit the stage in advance.

 

With rumors circulating that Jon and Kate Gosselin, of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8 are nearing divorce, fans of the show are still wondering if the buzz on the web is based on harsh rumors, or some semblance of truth.

According to reports, Jon Gosselin, father of 8-year old twins Cara and Madeline and 4-year old sextuplets, Aaden, Joel, Colin, Alexis, Hannah, and Leah has been out partying while out of town either to take care of an injured family member, or while at a public speaking engagement (dependent upon reports). According to a statement released by the Gosselin’s publicist, there are no truth to the rumors that he has been unfaithful to his wife.
“It is certainly hurtful for people to spread rumors and lies about us. It certainly makes me reluctant to live my life like the average person would. This has made it very clear that the simplest innocent gesture — such as taking a picture with a fan, can be taken out of context.
“As you can see on the show, I am not perfect, but I am a part of a loving family and couple.”
Even if this statement reveals truths about the photos popping up online, with Jon and younger female fans, TLC is fueling the rumor mill with more speculation. Advertisements for next Monday’s season finale of Jon & Kate Plus 8 shows the couple in their interview room, after introducing them with tense moments and arguments – Jon Gosselin states that “it’s really difficult”, while Kate ads “it’s a strange time for us, but we’re working on it”. The fact that both spouses are in the same room for the interview, may indicate that TLC’s doing nothing more than fueling rumors to boost ratings for the season’s final episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, but fans of the show are still holding their breath awaiting the possible announcement of the couple’s separation.

Tune into TLC on Monday, March 23, 2009 at 9pm EST for the season finale of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

As one of TLC’s most highly rated shows, Jon & Kate Plus 8 has captivated audiences looking to get a glimpse at the lives of America’s favorite family of multiples. While the eight Gosselin children sure are cute, it’s the witty banter between parents John & Kate that make the series most entertaining. However, the most recent buzz amongst the TV community says that the couple’s relationship just might be on the rocks, so the world’s most popular family may stop filming with Season 5.

InTouchWeekly.com recently reported that Jon Gosselin, 31 year old father of sextuplets and twins, has been stepping out on his wife of almost 10 years, Kate Gosselin. According to reports, Jon was recently bar and party hopping all around Pennsylvania with young college girls. The contemporary dad, who has been rarely filmed on the show with even a casual glass of wine, was reportedly drinking heavily and playing beer pong at a college party while dirty-dancing and making out with his new female college friends.

According to representatives for TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 TLC’s famous parents are not headed for divorce despite the vicious rumors circulating about Jon’s apparent infidelity. While Jon Gosselin admits that’s he is far from perfect, his rep assures viewers that there are no truth to the rumor; Jon remains a loving and committed husband and father to he and wife, Kate’s 8 children.

Fans of the show can only hope that Jon & Kate Plus 8 won’t stop with season 5; viewers have yet to see how Kate’s infamous compulsive habits unfold with the addition of 2 German Sheppard puppies (Shoka and Nala) to their busy household (which is now a sprawling $1.3 million estate).

Tune into TLC at 9pm EST Monday for an all new episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and find out how the drama unfolds!

The big rumor circulating about Grey’s Anatomy this week is that we’ve seen the last of Derek Sheppard on CTV’s hit primetime show. After a series of dramatic plotlines have surrounded Seattle Grace’s top neurosurgeon over the past few episodes, rumor has it McDreamy might be ready to step down.

CTV’s recent press release regarding the upcoming Grey’s Anatomy episode introduces this shocking new plotline with the following statement: “”After learning at a deposition that more of his patients have died than survived, Derek decides to quit, even as Meredith refuses to give up on him. Bailey and the Chief continue to bicker over her peds fellowship – until Adele steps in to mediate – and Izzie’s interns discover something unsettling on a ‘patient x,’ unaware that the charts they’re looking at are actually Izzie’s.”

Unfortunately, the show will be on hiatus until the next episode titled “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” airs on CTV on Thursday, March 12, 2009; so fans of Grey’s Anatomy will be left holding their breath until it is revealed if this is the end of the series favorite hunk, Derek Sheppard. Critics and Grey’s fans are saying already that there’s no way we’ve seen the last of Patrick Dempsey’s hit character, McDreamy in the halls of Seattle Grace; but will this push back his plans for a proposal to Meredith? Or will this be the final nail in the coffin to push away the insecure Resident?

The more obvious plotlines will continue on the next episode of Grey’s; while we’ve known for weeks something is up with Izzie’s health, we might finally find out before the plotline gets even older; and maybe there will be a conclusion into the anti-climactic battle over Bailey’s request to transfer to peds.

While I have my doubts we’ve seen the end of Patrick Dempsey, tell me; would the absence of McDreamy change your opinion of one of the most popular primetime series?

Tune into CTV on Thursday, March 12 at 9pm EST to see what’s in store!
