    UPDATE: Kate Gosselin's attorney, Mark Momjian, just released the following statement to E! News about today's hearing:

    "We are clearly pleased that the monies taken by Mr. Gosselin have been returned to the marital account, and we look forward to recouping additional monies taken by Mr. Gosselin at the time of the parties' private arbitration hearings...Despite his initial comments denying responsibility, we have established that Ms. Gosselin needed emergency relief to prevent her economic claims from being compromised.

    It was the Jon Minus Kate show this morning.

    Mr. Gosselin arrived sans his estranged missus in a Pennsylvania court to let the judge know he indeed paid back $180,000 he had improperly withdrawn from the couple's joint account.

    Jon sought to turn the tables, telling Judge Arthur Tilson that the MIA Kate needed to account for $33,000 in missing moola.

    Kate's attorney, however, said the amount was small enough that the arbitrator overseeing the couple's divorce did not require her to explain why she needed the funds and that Kate had been "fully compliant."

    The next arbitration session is set for next month. By then, Jon will have to find a new attorney. His last one, Charlie Meyer, called it quits today.

    Kate, meanwhile, skipped out on the fun to attend a women's conference. She'll be back on the airwaves tonight fielding viewers' questions on the latest episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8.
