Jezebel reports that Cher's been catching up on her reality television, and luckily for us, the icon tweeted her thoughts on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” “Bridezillas” and reruns of “Jon & Kate Plus Eight."
Cher follows “Dancing With the Stars” to support son Chaz, and calls fellow contestant Rob Kardashian a “nice guy.”
Cher asked, or perhaps stated, “Is true Kardashian did Porno!” A fan clarified that Kim’s leaked sex tape is what kick-started her career as a celebrity.

Make no mistake, Kate Gosselin wouldn't mind being back on TV. The reality star made that clear this morning on “Today."
Kate, whose TLC show “Kate Plus 8” ends tonight, assured Matt Lauer, "I'm sure you will see my kids again at some point.”
"If the right thing came along, I think we're still in [agreement] with it," the mom of eight said of going back on the air with her brood.

Despite reports that Jon and Kate Gosselin have come upon a settlement in their custody battle over their eight kids, it looks like that hopeful bit of news hasn’t happened just yet.
Back in April, Jon Gosselin filed paperwork for primary custody of the Gosselin brood, alleging that Kate “abuses” the terms of the custody agreement in place and was an “absentee parent" because of her “Dancing with the Stars” stint, according to People. The magazine also reports that Kate currently has primary custody, and Jon has to pay $21,000 a month in child support according to an agreement that was reached in arbitration.
While some have said that Jon and Kate have reached some sort of highly confidential agreement, Jon Gosselin’s attorney, Mary Vidas, tells CNN that a settlement in the custody battle has yet to be reached.

It’s official! Kate Gosselin (and her hair!) are getting their own show on TLC.
Steve Cheskin, head of programming for the network, announced during a panel at the Television Critics Association that a project is currently in the works. “I can tell you yes, we are developing a new show with Kate,” Cheskin said.
Rumors have abounded that the show will feature Kate trying her hand at different jobs, a la Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in “The Simple Life,” but Cheskin said that the details for the show have yet to be worked out. Last month Kate was spotted with a camera crew serving food at a North Carolina restaurant.

Can Jon and Kate be given a grown up time out? Is there such a thing? Can I create it with them in mind?
I know when I was little and I misbehaved I was sent to my room. If I shot my mouth off at my parents I was sent right upstairs into a time out. Why does that stop when we get older? Jon and Kate are shooting their mouths off and you know what? It’s time for them to stop!
Jon is seen in this new clip on TMZ.com reading an email from Kate to the paparazzi. Now you can see from the clip that he is clearly frustrated; he is worried that Kate won’t honor their custody agreement on their twins’ birthday. Here’s the thing though, I shouldn’t know anything about that. It is utterly reprehensible that Jon was standing on a New York City sidewalk and telling absolute strangers about his divorce.
You both seem determined to air every aspect of your dirty laundry to the public. Kate, you claim you don’t have enough money to feed your children—even though at the same time you want to buy a pearl ring with eight diamonds. Jon, you want your kids off TV during your divorce—the one thing I can support you on. But I digress. I have a suggestion for you Jon and Kate—and I think you will both really like it. It would allow you both to keep talking about your crumbling marriage, make money and get your kids off of TV all at the same time. I am pitching you a new reality TV show: “Jon and Kate minus 8”, all about your divorce and custody battle.
I am willing to bet that people would watch, giving you what you seem to so desperately desire—attention. That brings me back to my original point about time outs. Kids are usually put there when they are misbehaving; you know, yelling, screaming, acting out, etc. Sound familiar? It’s time to grow up; if you are going to act like children I am going to treat you that way. Jon and Kate- TIME OUT!

Jon Gosselin has had it, and he isn't going to take it anymore! Jon just sent a cease and desist order to TLC demanding it stop production of the show and leave his property. This comes just two days after TLC announced the show was being renamed “Kate Plus 8” and Jon filed papers halting his divorce proceedings.
Showbiz Tonight just received this statement from TLC:
“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. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents.”
Be sure to tune in to Showbiz Tonight for all the latest on "Jon & Kate"- 11 p.m. EST
