Jon Gosselin wants to slow down divorce proceedings

jongosselin_290_001.jpgJon Gosselin may not be able to do anything about his removal from "Jon & Kate Plus Eight," but he's apparently had a change of heart about getting out of his marriage.

Gosselin has filed court papers in Pennsylvania that would suspend the divorce proceedings between he and his wife Kate for 90 days. He tells In Touch Weekly that he hopes the filing will "enable Kate and me to restore our relationship as cooperative parents and to open up our lines of communication."

"I hope that she will be as receptive and enthusiastic as I am to do what is best for our family," he adds.

The news comes only a couple hours after TLC announced Tuesday that it was relaunching its Gosselin family show as "Kate Plus Eight" and focusing more on Kate's life as a newly single mom to two sets of multiples. TLC did say Jon would make occasional appearances, but he won't be a regular part of the show anymore.

Jon Gosselin and his lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, tell In Touch that Jon has come to regret his actions over the past few months, with Heller saying "He ... looked in the mirror and didn't like the reflection." For his part, Jon says he regrets his conduct since the separation: "I used poor judgment in publicly socializing with other women so soon."
