Jon Gosselin

Kate Put Our Kids in 'Horrible' Situation

Jon Gosselin says he felt TERRIBLE for his daughters for having to appear on the "Today" show with Kate this morning ... telling TMZ the whole thing was "horrible" to watch.

Gosselin appeared on "TMZ Live" moments ago and said Kate's humiliating meltdown on live TV this morning shows exactly why the kids shouldn't be forced to participate in a lengthy publicity tour with their mother.

"I’m going to handle this as a family matter," Jon said ... adding, "I don’t want to affect the children anymore."

Omg, some comments. The mother has done nothing wrong but marry this jerk. Hey pays zero child support (in costs around 900 a month to raise each kid per the govt). She tried doing dancing with the stars to earn income he trashed her for that. He claims he doesn't want has kids on tv, if it's so bad then why is hhe on couples therapy. He's the one using the kids and they clearly miss the perks tv gave them like vacations they would never have had and less stress from their mom due to no money. I'm so sick of him and dumb people telling her to go back to nursing. That won't cover day care or their food bill. Get real. And look at all the skanks he gets to run around with having fun, seen the mom on many dates. Listen to people's actions not what they say. I applaud this mother, I can't imagine having that many kids, she should have sued that dr.

And....the girls seem to be sitting close to a mother some of you say they are scared of. Watch an episode of dr. Phil. Scared kids don't sit close to the bad parent, especially when. You have a couch that big.

well duhhh    

Kate gosselin is a trainwreck of a mother, comparable with Octomom. Some one tell her i said that. she got addicted to the limelight, and her family suffered because of it.

The kid was nervous & her pos mother couldn't wait a minute before she embarrassed her to get her to tell how wonderful her life is.

These 8 kids are going to need years of therapy when they are finally free of their attention seeking parents. The younger ones are probably even more damaged than these 2.

Clearly they do NOT want to be there. Why aren't they in school? Oh yeah, mom wants to be on TV and this is the only way to get there.....

I'm tired of his whining its enough already! Yes Kate is a mean horrible person yes she was mean condescending and rude to him but come on! Enough already . He's biting off his nose to spite his face. If they were doing a show he would be off the hook for child support and jail ! After this comment and the show he's doing she should require child support from him.

For someone who does not want to be in the "public eye" handling your "family matter" in such a PUBLIC WAY (talking on TMZ) makes you look like the 3rd shift waiter you are...

I'm NOT a fan of Kate's at all but Those girls were just being typical 13 year old BRATS...they were BRATS when they were little and on the show (especially MADDIE)... and they are BRATS now... Kate probably told them to "smile" as they were getting ready to be interviewed and in TRUE TEENAGE FASHION they acted bratty in order to embarrasss her...

You dont want to affect the children ANYMORE?.... How noble!! I am sure it has nothing to do with John being all washed up and not able to make money off his kids any longer! I am not a fan of Kate, but I do feel bad she is stuck with a DEADBEAT, money hungry jerk!!
