Jon Gosselin wants to stall the divorce for 90 days, presumably because getting fired from TLC led to Jon looking in the mirror sober (for the first time in over a year) and seeing a giant Massengail brand toolbox staring back. There was a long enough time in between that incident and his next bong hit to call his lawyer. Jon told In Touch Weekly (via PopEater):

“I regret my conduct since Kate and I separated … I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon.

Even though we were heading for a divorce, it appeared that Kate had been suffering from this divorce as much as I had. That’s why I asked my attorney to put the brakes on this divorce so I could try to regain control over the future of our family. So Kate and I could join on a cooperative course that would benefit our family — not destroy it.”

Not only is Jon being ditched from the Plus Eight show, Kate has taped a pilot with Paula Deen for a Viewesque show, and is working with TLC for another show in 2010 starring her. Jon’s biggest prospect is a non-existent clothing line. Maybe he’s trying to stall the divorce because of money issues. It takes some cheddar to be a balla.
