Will Jon Gosselin's gal pal Deanna Hummel appear on 'Jon & Kate Plus 8?'
Now there's a TLC ratings killer if ever we've heard one.
The Gosselins' divorce announcement Monday night was watched by a record 10.6 million viewers. How to top this? The New York Daily News is reporting that the next must-see TV will be when the show â€“ on hiatus until Aug. 3 â€“ begins to include Deanna Hummel, Jon's current squeeze, on camera.
Will they call the show "Jon & Kate & Deanna Plus 8?"
"Deanna's role isn't expected to be big, but because she's part of Jon's life, she'll be filmed," says the Daily News' insider. The source added that the show will focus on how Jon and Kate are raising their kids separately.
The kids will not have to go back and forth. The parents will do shifts in the house caring for the kids. Toss in a young girlfriend and these kids are gonna be one confused mess. For one thing, they will be able to look back at their childhood by reviewing tabloids, not family photos.
So far, a TLC spokesman has only responded. "We have no specific plans for future episodes."
What do you think? If this is true, is it the worst -- and sickest -- idea ever?
Would you watch a show with Jon's 23-year-old girlfriend on it?
