Jon Gosselin
Jon Gosselin has been trying to shut down production of "Kate Plus 8," formerly known as "Jon & Kate Plus 8," and TLC is firing back saying his legal move is purely in his own self-interest.

TLC said in a statement to People, "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.

Jon Gosselin wants TLC to "cease and desist" production of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and leave his property, according to The Insider.

The Largest Obstacle For Lamar Odom And Khloe Kardashian Is Their Reality TV Life

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
One would think that only dating a month before tying the knot could be a factor in the length of a marriage. How about the fact that the husband works away from home for eight months out of the year? Wrong. According to PopEater, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian's marriage is already doomed due to their Reality TV lifestyle.

PopEater's first mark against the Odom-Kardashian pairing? "Danger sign number one is that Khloe and Lamar have already let the whirlwind of reality romance take precedence over their relationship. The pair reportedly rushed to the altar in order to stay on the deman...

Reality TV Roundup: 'Hell's Kitchen,' 'Project Runway' & More

9/26/2009 7:09am EDT
Another week of reality TV in the books and this is what happened on our favorite shows...

Hell's Kitchen (FOX Tuesday 7 CST)

The show took last week off but this week they came back strong with back-to-back episodes. After watching HK and Top Chef I am beginning to think all these cooking shows are running thin on deserved cooks because there are very few consistent chefs.

Episode 1

This week Suzanne joined the blue team and the guys were not too happy about it but Kevin, Dave, and Van will have to deal with it. Frankly, Suzanne has been terrible and I am surprised she is sti...

The Rachel Zoe Project
This week in reality TV was fun as most shows are in the middle of their season or wrapping up and we are starting to get to the good stuff. With the fall season beginning, network TV is starting to show more fictional television but the cable networks are sticking to their reality schedule and that is why I rarely watch network television.

The Rachel Zoe Project (Bravo Monday 9 CST)

My new favorite reality show centers on Rachel Zoe, her assistants Brad and Taylor, and her loving husband Rodger. All four bring their own spice to the table and it makes for great reality TV.

Although Reality TV is supposed to be real it is actually intended to help people escape reality and laugh at other people's misadventures. The trashier the concept the better the show, except some of those VH1 shows are obnoxious.

I am more about shows like "The Real World," "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance," or my new favorite show "Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel."

If you missed any of your favorite reality shows last week, I am here to give a short synopsis of what went down:

Gunn tells, "In his case, everything is too big. It is what I refer to as the slobification of America. If you want to dress to feel as though you never got out of bed, then don't get out of bed."

How about Jon's estranged wife Kate? What does he think about her controversial hairstyle? Said Gunn, "If that's the way she wants to present herself, then she's doing a good job."
