Kate Gosselin -- Jon Only Cares About Jon

10/1/2009 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TLC isn't the only one calling Jon Gosselin "opportunistic" -- now his estranged wife is joining in on the fun.

Jon & Kate

Kate just released the following statement:

"It appears that Jon's priority is Jon and his interests ... I'm saddened and confused by Jon's public media statements. Jon has never expressed any concerns to me about our children being involved in the show and, in fact, is on the record as saying he believes the show benefits our children."

As TMZ previously reported, production has been suspended on "Kate Plus 8" while Jon and the network hash out a deal.

GO Kate! I can't imagine having your life turned upside down. You must feel like it is all so surreal. I have three little ones and a supportive spouse and that's hard enough. Peace.

What's wrong with being in it for the $$$$ ??? That money can pay for all of the kids' college education and more ! They have a beautiful big home that the kids can enjoy because of the show. I see nothing wrong with it. The kids appear to be smart and well adjusted, and clearly Kate and Jon both love them, though Jon doesn't appear to be as interested in being a hands-on parent as Kate is.

What a ruse. She blasts him for making public statements as she makes a public statement. They are both exploitive parents, egotistical opportunistic wannabes ...and becoming (yawn) oh so boring. Get social services to round up those kids. In fact, get a school bus, make a pit stop at Octomom's and be done.

Why doesn't this fool just hold his breath and jump up and down. We need to bring in Super Nanny in to straighten this idiot up. It makes my blood boil when I read his name and after it is "reality star". Star----this person couldn't act or even talk his way out of a paper bag. I hope Kate gets a new show (without the kids) and makes MILLIONS. Yea John, MILLIONS. (None for you).

HAAAAAAAAAAA Kate you are no better every thing you do is in your interest. Some one should call Child Services and have them step in and take over the care of these kids.

Wow, pot meet kettle. She has made the rounds of all the talk shows, has filmed a pilot for her OWN show and is gone all the time doing so, and she says Jon is all about Jon and her interests lie with her children. If that was true, she'd go home and take care of them and stop playing the media game against her soon-to-be-ex husband.

#4 The only thing Kate has said about him in public is he is acting like a 15 year old and that's the truth. It's Jon whose been doing the bashing.

The only thing saddened regarding KATE GOSSELING IS HER POCKETBOOK. She manipulates jon to think hes doing the show for the good of the children when its all for her. TMZ reported that the kids have not made 1 PENNY IN 4 FREAKING YEARS.

TLC get these people off the air. Neither one of them is in it for the kids. It all boils down to MONEY MONEY MONEY!!! Jon the D-bag is a spoiled brat and Kate is a control freak. Please replace the show with normal people.

I'm glad he is fighting back against that belittling nag of a woman. She treated him like crap on that show, cutting him off during interviews, degrading him like a child..."Don't interrupt me." "Why do you always do that?" The guy took that abuse for years until the resentment reached a boiling point. You can see how much he can't stand her and for good reason.

She drove him away with her 'know it all' attitude and degrading him as her partner. She has no one to blame but herself.

But who views her (or the show) as something good is delusional.

Jon can live his life anyway he feels and NO ONE is in position to judge him. The only thing that truly matters is how the kids feel about their dad and I'm sure they are not reading tabloids or trolling TMZ.
