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.

Nice try John. Proof is in the photo’s. Kate is always with the kids and YOU are ALWAYS with your girlfriends. I don’t blame her for treating you like crap, cause that’s exactly what you are. Eat another donut.

Jon is a pathetic whiner. Kate was working all the time, so of course he should take care of the kids. But I guess he didn’t want the responsiblity, and wanted to party all the time, like he is doing now. He is a weak, lazy and pathetic being and I feel sorry for their kids. Kate might have made some major mistake, but this man proves everyday that he is irresponsible and whiny. Own up to your actions and responsibilities man!

Some people like to run their mouths.; they are the people that know everything there is to know about someone else s life. Unless you can walk in someone else s shoes and go through what that other person went through then you should just shut up. All the better than everyone else people should give the rest of us a break. You perfect people should realize that the rest of us are only human and we make MISTAKES.

oh Jon, please stop.
I know you can’t help it because you are an inferior dull-witted immature, inferior cheap beer guzzling, small genitaled slacker, but just try to think of your children’s future for a change.

@gokatego!:
Wow, somebody needs to get a life. A good doctor might be able to help.

Here is a list of questions to help men determine if they are being abused:

Did she embarrass or humiliate you in front of other people, including your friends or family?
Did she insist that anything you wanted for yourself was selfish and/or wrong?
Did she withhold affection to “punish” you for any violations of her rules?
Did she intimidate you in any way?
Did she threaten you, or threaten to harm herself or anyone else, if/when you left?
Did she force you to ask her for money, or take your money away from you? Did she have control of the family finances, so you didn’t even know what or when money was being spent?
Did she prevent you from taking a job you wanted, or going to school? Did she force you, either directly or through manipulation, to quit a job you had?
Did she make jokes about her treatment of you, insist that she never did anything to hurt you, or blame you for her behavior?
Did she treat you as if you were her servant?
Did she ever make you do things you felt were wrong or illegal?
Did she ever belittle your beliefs, or tell you that your faith is wrong?
Did she make you leave social gatherings, or restrict your contact with your friends or family?
Did she make you feel afraid, or like you needed to be “careful” around her?
Did she make you feel guilty or ashamed about yourself, your feelings, your beliefs, or anything else that makes you a unique individual?

Any one of these is a sign of abuse. Only you can decide how many it takes to add up to proof that you were abused.

Think back to some of the old shows. Jon was a classic abuse victim.

PLEASE fnas of thesepeole,don’t start a
“Who is the better parent thread?”

THEY are both equal. Neither one is better than the other.
They both are wrong.

Kate is winning the public support because of Jon acting like he is 22 yrs.old and just grad.from college.

Kate is keener.
Both are sorry excusses for parents.Both are making their own millions off their kids no matter who, what, where,when how or why.
The kids are the bread winners.

The parents expose the kids at all cost at anytime.The kids NEVER have and time off cameras.

Both parents USE the front yard of the house which sits on a few acres,so that the kids along with the parent du jour ,can get maxium paparazzi benefits.

Both are parents ain’t worth a sh i t!

I’m tired of seeing these rich famewhores on my laptop screen. They have enough money to cover therapy for 100 years–go away.


Check out my celebrity predictions and get a free 7 minute psychic reading at http://www.celebpsychic.com–no strings people!!!

He needs to grown up? It sounds like most of you think when you have kids you should be on lockdown 24/7 with the kids and your life is over. He hosts one event and he is the bad parent and Kate is gone 24/7 bad talking Jon and she is the good parent…. WTF! If you think Jon is a bad parent and Kate is the good one then I would bet that you have no clue about raising kids or have none. Anyways.. Some of you and Kate need to come back to real life and realize that she is famous for having 8 kids and getting free crap and now she is famous for talking crap and acting like a victim do you see the next step????

She doesn’t need money what the H are you talking about so don’t get it confused she wants the attention from the paps and if you can’t see she is using those kids for personal gain then I can’t help you. GO JON!!!!!!!!

stella

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.

that”s the same i think .
and she was the same mad way all the times with the kids to ,but now she is the victim ,and the abnegate mother ????$$$$.

Kate’s a fraud, everyone with a brain knows,and thanx to her mentally challenged fans she has made some loot.

@Katey:

No such word as genitaled.

It’s nothing new. She really verbally abused him. Whenever I stumbled upon the show I cringed at the way she trampled him at every corner. There were moments I wished he would stand up and abuse her back. He took a lot and has lot of repressed pain and anger.

I also think he would need some serious therapy to get over the damage to his self esteem. Until he does that he is going to act immature. Hope there are some wise old people in his life who would propel him toward therapy and get him back to his kids.

So why didn’t Jon write any books or offer to be a guest speaker???????? I’m sure there would have been a lot of people out there who would have been just as happy to hear what he had to say, they could have taken turns….Could it be that he just plain lazy???? And chose to quit his job to take care of the kids so Kate could go out and bring home the bacon…. From what i’ve seen everything was fine and there were no complaints until JON got caught cheating and even after he got caught the first time it seemed to have been swept under the rug without getting out of control but when he got caught the second time that was when EVERYONE turned on Kate…..But then he got caught again with Hailey and the tables turned…..I don’t feel sorry for him, he had a choice and unfortunately he did not use his head…well not the right one anyway and now he is grasping at anything including the I was abused by Kate card to try and gain sympathy….Sure Kate was nasty but so was he and he wanted to be free of having to be there with his kids everyday….He had a choice to stay with Kate and the kids and try to work things out or he could leave Kate and the kids and party, smoke cigarettes, pot and drink…obviously he chose the latter…..He did not want to have the responsibility of being a full time dad and even when it is his turn all I ever see is him talking to the paps signing autographs talking/texting on his phone and looking for the next opportunity to bash Kate…And for all those saying that Kate is having an affair with the bodyguard where are the pics of them leaving their lovenest, handholding during romantic dinner and her leaving out the back door…etc……?????

Next time Kate hits 90 on the highway let’s just hope she rolls that SUV so we all don’t have to look at that sour puss and rat’s nest hair any more.

karma will come soon to smack her down to the ground where her kind live; worms and assorted vermin , by god.

Furthermore, Kate is doing what is typical of abusive spouses/partners. She is using every means she knows…trashing John in the media, their kids, people they know, she even tried to use the cops….to get him back under her control.

i saw the clip…i hope to watch the entire interview when it’s on. i think jon was probably telling the truth. not that that is an excuse to cheat or go party like he did in jan/feb etc. but i can totally see kate, with her personality, doing what he said.

now maybe she needed to keep him grounded etc. but then again she knew the kind of guy he was when she met him. he was a *bad boy* with *no ambition* and i think at first it was fun for both of them. then when the 6 were born i think it was a have to survive mentality.

when the show picked up and they got more financially secure i think she took to it like a duck to water; she is witty and funny and pretty and was the natural one to be the speaker etc. i can also see her feeling self-important…but i think we could all have a great tenedency toward that given the scenario of the last 4 years.

with the book signings, speaking engagements i think it all got out of hand. i think they could have travelled together more often…even with the kids (with tutors) and eliminated a lot of what jon is talking about. i don’t know why that wasn’t something either of them thought of or if one did and the other didn’t want to or what but i think it could have been a solution for awhile.

i also don’t know, but my opinion is that kate wanted/wants a man to take charge and be the husband. i think she pushed and pushed wanting him to stop her and take charge. he’s so laid back that he let her make the decisions and rule the roost (so to speak). so i see both of them at fault on this one.

i also think if he had taken charge they wouldn’t be where they are. i think they would be doing the show as they used to but not have attained the monetary status they now enjoy. i think you have to have a lot of drive and ambition and he doesn’t…she definitely does.

the worst part is they let it get to the point he was talking about on gma. one has to take just as much blame for allowing oneself to take that kind of put down and allow her to go about as she wanted and make all the decisions.

i see them both as at fault…but i still don’t see them as evil and horrible parents etc. i think this same kind of thing goes on in non-famous families all the time. this family is just on tv and in the news so we see it more and form many opinions on their actions.

again, not saying either of them are bad and evil just they have both made poor decisions for their family…and for a lot longer time than just the last 5 – 8 months.

like my son would say…she got the big head. and to some degree i agree with that. she started out doing what she had to to survive and then had people fawning over her, wanting her autograph, booking her for speaking and then it just went to her head and fed her ego.

some people have great ambition (kate) some do not (jon) but i don’t think either way is good…it has to be a balance in anyone’s life. lol hard to achieve.

i haven’t seen or heard kate trash jon at all.

Kate is guilty of Domestic Violence. No jury needed. We all saw it live on every episode of their show. Kate has trashed Jon for years and continues to do so.

Soaplover @ 09/03/2009 at 4:39 pm

Jon, you shouldn’t be discussing Kate like that to the public. The only thing she said about you is that you’ve made some bad decisions (which is the nicest way to put it!!!!). Jon, you need to be at home focusing on your children!!!!

Red Spoon @ 09/03/2009 at 4:46 pm

- Can’t wait till Jon spills the beans on how Kate regularly beats her children and her dogs. It’s Kate who needs a sound beating..the wheelchair kind.

This just confirms what a weeney this guy is. Shut up!, do something constructive and take care of your kids.
