Filming of 'Jon & Kate' kids halted

TLC network says it has shut down filming of the children on "Jon & Kate Plus 8" after receiving a cease-and-desist order from their father, Jon Gosselin.

In a statement, the network said production would remain suspended "pending further conversations" between both Gosselins, who are parents of young twins and sextuplets. Filming not involving the kids continues, TLC said.

The Insider Web site reported Thursday that Jon Gosselin demanded through lawyers that the TLC production crew vacate the property of the family home in Pennsylvania.

The Gosselins filed for divorce in June.

On Monday, TLC announced that the weekly series would be renamed "Kate Plus Eight," with a reduced involvement by Jon Gosselin, whom the network says remains under exclusive contract.
