TLC, have you no shame? Also look into the concept of attorney-client privilege

TLC, leave the father of the Gosselin children alone and let this family move on

Jon isn't the most ridiculous party in this divorce, nor is Kate. It's now TLC. If there was any doubt in anyone's mind that they don't care about the kids, this should confirm it.

TLC has deposed Jon's attorneys to try to elicit information for their breach of contract suit, as well as Jon's girlfriend/ex-girlfriend Hailey, and douche-pal Michael Lohen.

TLC has apparently never heard of the attorney-client privilege, which extends even AFTER you cease to represent a client, even after their death. It is, with few exceptions, forever, and with few exceptions, one of the most protected privileges in existence in the American legal system. The first thing any halfway decent attorney would do, and in fact is obligated to do by almost every state Bar and the Code of Ethics, is assert the attorney-client privilege and refuse to answer any questions that ask him or her to reveal confidential communications with Jon. A judge will then have to decide if it is in the interest of justice to require them to reveal information. No, you do not have to waive this, only in extreme criminal cases are you required to kiss and tell, such as disclosing information that you know someone is about to be killed (believe it or not, no law says a lawyer even has to disclose the location of a body if they are told).

While we certainly do not condone Jon's actions, it's simply not in the children's best interest for TLC to drag a messy lawsuit out against their father. Regardless of his behavior, he is still their father. They love him and it is incomprehensible to us TLC would drag a parent of those children through the mud, or anyone they love. What exactly are they seeking to accomplish? Justice? Against a nobody like Jon? Who cares! The only thing we can think of is money. But didn't they suck enough out of this family? They really need more?

This family made TLC more money than they could have ever dreamed of before. They brought more goodwill to a fledgling little cable network than their wildest imaginations. But this was not a drama or a comedy, it was a real family, and TLC was naive to think the gravy train would continue forever. Families evolve, circumstances change, and it was only a matter of time before someone stepped up and said "okay, cut. Enough." That someone happened to be Jon, and regardless of his motives, to get back at him for trying to get his own children, who are in his custody and control, away from the cameras, is really without any foresight and compassion. It does not matter how much in the wrong TLC believes Jon is. The bottom line is, to sue him is to sue the provider and protector of the children. To bring him down is to bring the children's father down. TLC refuses to realize or acknowledge how damaging this lawsuit is for the children. It directly affects them, because it is their father. If anyone has ever been involved in any kind of suit, without question the suit affects the entire family. Creates anxiety and tension for the entire family. The children are going through enough watching the parents they love split. Leave them in peace.

If anyone should be sued, it should be TLC. For contributing to the desecration and mutilation of eight innocent children's childhoods. Who will step up and counter-sue TLC? Unfortunately there are not a lot of laws in existence that would bring TLC to full justice for what they did to those kids. Not Earthly ones, anyway.

Hey there~

Could you comment on the Affidavit of TLC in the suit against Jon Gosselin and the JKIG - the "loan out" (what does that mean, exactly) that the Gosselin's own? It is up on Radar today.

If they are suing the Gosselin's corp which was made a party to their last contract and owned by the Gosselin's, does this mean that they are, in part, also suing Kate Gosselin?

Thanks so much!

Hello - I was "introduced" to your site through another poster. I love hearing what an attorney has to say about the G's divorce. Thanks!

Third party communications are a little more complicated than that. It's actually a pretty gray area...not ALL third parties in the room automatically waive attorney-client privilege. Work product or anyone else in your firm including secreteries don't automatically waive. Consulting with others like say a business manager may also be an exception. Moreover, it would not be the attorney who has to talk if there was a third party in the room. TLC would have to track down and subpoena the third party himself. The attorney can still claim the privilege no matter who was in the room. And the third party could always take the 5th amendment, and how would anyone prove what was said if they do that?

TLC wants to continue filming the kids. Kate was asked by Natalie Morales on her TLC special what Kate thought about the lawsuit and Kate agreed with this. TLC wants to continue to film the kids for the TV show "Kate Plus 8". This is no secret. But Jon said on Larry King Live a few weeks ago that no further filming of his kids.

I bet if Jon would change his mind and allow his kids to be filmed, TLC would drop the lawsuit.

Please write an article about this. I think Kate is hateful and so is TLC.

Thank so much for this information. I also confirmed the information before posting in regards to TLC. So much misinformation has been disseminated by posters from Imdb like dtharman, jjharpy (several socks & trolls), opieonetaylor, evening-frog,mort11, aurora and tvsnarky. Your blog will serve as a breath of fresh air. There are a few intelligent rational members of the Jon and Kate Plus 8 board like m-v,Alexis,MerseyDotes & Zephyranthes1 to name a few on Imdb. We want to bring unbias truthful and objective information about Jon, Kate and TLC. Thank you again!
