UPDATE-Jon and Kate take a break


In the wake of their announcement on Monday night’s show on cable channel TLC that they will split up, television reality couple Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children will take a break from the show centered on their life as a large family, the channel said on Tuesday.gosselins1

“TLC continues to support the Gosselin family and will work closely with them to determine the best way to continue to tell their story as they navigate through this difficult time,” the channel said in a statement.

The show will air a retrospective next Monday, and then return on Aug. 3, TLC said.

“During this time, the family will take some time off to regroup and then a modified schedule will be in place to support the family’s transition,” the channel said.
