Jon Gosselin Speaks Out Against Kate

Jon Gosselin Speaks Out Against Kate

Kate Gosselin picks up her kids at the bus stop before dropping by the bank and UPS store on Monday (August 31) in Reading, Penn.

The 34-year-old mother has been sharing her side of the story on various shows since announcing her divorce from Jon Gosselin.

For the first time since the announcement, Jon is finally speaking out. Talking with Good Morning America’s Chris Cuomo, the father of 8 shared his side of the story.

“I’m taking care of the kids,” Jon said. “She’s on book tours, she’s doing all these things. You know, she’s gone a week. You know, comes back. Unpacks, repacks, does laundry, packs up and leaves again. I’m standing there like, ‘Oh, okay. Your mom’s gone again.’”

Reflecting back on his marriage with Kate, Jon added, “I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down.”

The full interview will air on ABC’s Primetime: Family Secrets on Sept. 8.

*YAWN* This saga has become increasingly tiresome.

# 2

Pot calling the kettle black. Weren’t you just hosting a pool party? Honestly, no one cares about your pathetic lives. My heart goes out to these kids.

I know there’s so much that’s happened, but I so wish they could get some major counseling and make this work, especially for the kiddos! They looked in love in the beginning, and I’m sure they could get that spark back. Maybe now she’s learned you can’t treat your spouse that way, and maybe he can get over his wild phase and settle back down and make this work!! Everyone’s answer is just to leave nowdays, and it’s just sad.

what else does jon have to do while kate is out making money to support the family he should be watching the kids not hosting parties and whoring around i know jon why don’t u get a job……..LOOSER

# 7

For the sake of the kids Jon shut up.

# 8

I don’t condone Jon’s behavior over the past few months at all. But what I did watch over the past 3 years WAS a woman verbally abusive to her spouse. I believe he really did get in over his head in unhappiness. Once he broke free, he never looked back. I also think he will come back full circle and be a good father again, and act normal. Right now, he has tunnel vision, and it has nothing to do with his past. Kate is no angel, and for everyone that watched the show……were questioning why he stayed with such a brow beater.

# 9

He sure likes to Whine alot!!!! Has’nt he been galavanting around the world hosting parties, and hanging with his many girlfriends??? He just needs to disappear, and give it a rest!!!

@pukey:
Jon IS at home watching the kids when she is off with the bodyguard, that is where all the trouble started. She needs to do what she says is the most important thing to her and put her kids first for once.. Kate lost the plot when she put money and notariety before her family.
Rent the series and watch from season one

JON IS PATHETIC @ 09/03/2009 at 10:42 am

Hey Jon ….GROW UP and TAKE RESPONSIBILTY for your life and quit blaming everyone else. You have major issues in which you DON’T WANT TO GROW UP. Seek Counselling.

Blaming Kate at this point is just plain pathetic because you know what? We’ve seen your spots and know what you’re really like!

Go ahead blame Kate for making money for the family. Looks like you don’t really hate all the money for your partying, bimbo’s of the week, fancy cars, apartments or UGLY shirts. Do you?

Having watched the show from the beginning I believe the abuse was mutual. He was just as nasty to her and she was to him, he just did it with a quieter tone, but the words used were just as abusive. As she has stated before he plays the victim…and is continuing to do so. I use to be pro Jon, but I now cannot stand “Sir Whines Alot”. He needs to grow up and think about his children.

IMO Jon was equally abusive with Kate, he was simply more subtle. He was constantly rolling his eyes and mocking her behind her back. Point of interest – usually Kate made her cracks against Jon when the kids weren’t around – the kids often saw Jon mocking Kate. He would walk behind her and mimic her – all kinds of things like that. I remember a couple of episodes where he commented on how her looks were going downhill (mused about how he liked her better blonde etc.).
I’m not defending Kate, she had no call to talk to him the way she did, but from what I saw he was almost just as bad. And, who knows what went on between the two of them behind closed doors?
It’s just not our call to assume that only one party was guilty of abuse.

I CALL BULLSHIT @ 09/03/2009 at 10:45 am

@Team Kids: And I don’t believe the bodyguard thing for one second. SHOW US SOME PICTURES! Kate just had his whole family over to the house on Sunday for a barbeque. Would you go over to some woman’s house who was reportedly fooling around with your husband? NO Plus Kate’s good friends with his wife.

This rumor came from Jon’s camp to help him look better.

rightttt… isn’t he the one parading his twenty girlfriends around like he’s never gotten laid before? She does seem a bit psycho, but I seem to see her with the kids more often than I see him with them

Yawn….double yawn.
Who cares anymore.

Kate is abusive, and yes Jon mocked her at times. I”ll say they are even in the blame department. But he did take care of the kids while she was out on her tours. And he does show up on his days to take care of the kids. Kate does her thing (interviews and such) on her days off, and Jon does his thing (could make better choices here), but they do show up for the kids when it is there turn. I see Jon’s side clearly. He was abused and eventually he will come around to be a decent dad. Most of his mocking was done in defense. And I certainly do not blame him for firing back. As far as the job goes, I think he wanted to have one all along. Kate was the one who thought he would be better off at home doing their “family job.” Well, he stayed at home, being called a “lame fish” for doing what she asked him to do. At least he cared enough to stay home with the kids, Kate was hardly ever there due to her tours and interviews. Stay at home moms deal with this kind of stuff all the time. Why should he take crap from people for staying at home just because he is a man? Someone has to take of the kids, and if you are lucky enough to do it on one salary, then that is wonderful! Most people do not have that option. I think Jon will find a job, maybe not what is considered a normal job. I just want him to start looking at the whole picture before he dives into something.

Kate’s behavior was THE reason I stopped watching the show a long time ago and from reading many comments over time Im far from alone. TLC is under the Oprah Discovery Health Channel wing and she is also a good friend of Maria Shriver’s so for now the show, and Kate, are under the Big O’s powerful wing to protect profits. Jon may score a tell-all sit down with Ms Oprah where he could rec’v her blessing and therefore that of the mini-van moms and middle America again.

They’re both as…les . Money and fame made them lose their focus and made them sc…g parents. No wonder Maddy is acting out by the rate of this event they will be lucky if she’s the only one among the kids who will need a professional help.

This crap is really getting old. The Gosselins have worn out their welcome. They need to go away, far, far away.

@marla: Mady ALWAYS acts out. She just like Kate.

Ted is right. I saw many times he was not very nice to Kate. Like one time he told her to take the stick out of her butt. He said that in the kitchen right in front of the kids. He also said he was glad that she was a neat freak because he didn’t have to clean up things. He also told her in the beginning that he didn’t like brunettes (this was right after having the kids and her hair was it’s natural color) only blonds. She asked him if he would have married her if she hadn’t been blond and he say “probably not.” Now what kind of guy would say that to a wife who just had 6 kids. Isn’t the babysitter brunette? Most of the time when she was yelling at him he was doing something stupid and not watching the kids or doing anything to help. He wants to be a young kid again with no responsibilities and no kids. You can tell that by the way he acts. He gets no sympathy from me at all.

If Jon wasn’t man enough to stand up to this wife when she was verbally “abusing” him then he has no one to blame but himself. Going around blaming Kate only adds to his disgusting childish ways, he needs to suck it up and be more responsible for himself instead of playing the victim. If Jon really thought that Kate was away too uch then he should have taken over more of the responsabilities outside of the home in regards to work, and NO WAY can he say “well she wouldn’t let me do it” because he is not a d*mn kid, he could have stood his ground and said “NO, this time I am the one going”…. on the interview or whatever. He is a freakin wus and the only way he can stand on his own now is by putting Kate down and standing on top of her, he is not man enough to do it on his own.

it’s great to hear his perspective. everyone’s so quick to villify him without hearing his side. i have watched every season of the show and the abuse from kate’s side was constant. she’s one of those women that will yell at you for an hour and when you finally yell back she says ‘what did i do? why are you yelling at me?’
marriage is a partnership. you have to love your partner & let go of the small stuff. nobody’s perfect but kate can’t seem to let that go.

Jon and Kate plus 8 might as well be the world. Everyday someone gets divorced with or without kids. They are making lovely memories for the kids to relive all their lives. They both need to remember everyone is watching. The kids will end up repeating this mess if its not handled better. Great time to take “Children in the middle” class hopefully it’s required in Penn. Jon and Kate are both only thinking about the hurt they feel, not the hurt the kids are feeling and will be feeling from now on. Wake up and take care of your kids first, then yourselves.
