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."

I watched the interview on the Today Show and I felt really bad for the girls! I think Jon was right in the aspect that the girls looked like they didn't know what to do! Some people think that the interview was supposed to be scripted. Well, like 2mins in you can see Kate mouthing the same exact words that Mady is saying! Apparently, a lot of people (not involved in the "Gosselin Wars") are very upset with Kate due to this interview. I mean it truly looked as if the girls were only there because mommy made them. Random people are tweeting Kate to stop with the exploitation. But I am sure she will just say that all of those many, many, MANY random people are all haters and just don't understand. Well they understand what they see and that is 2 very torn girls not knowing what to do. Do I please mom or do I do my own thing?

It can't be a fun childhood for any of those kids. Can't imagine having to live with either of those self-centered, money-hungry narcissists.

Sorry, but kids this age act like that all the time. I don't think it's as big a deal as TMZ is making it out to be. Not everyone is a Kardashian Media Wh***re

Saw the interview, or lack thereof, and these girls were clearly coached by her and put up to it. I felt uncomfortable watching it. They were like a deer in the headlights.

Kate even slid in a dig at Jon by saying the girls are just speaking out against all the false information that is being spread and she included his name among all the tabloids and websites she lists. That is their father man. Cannot stand this woman.

This clown...if he wants to be a father to these kids, maybe he should support them since they are his kids as much as hers. Kate didn't create them all by herself. Last time I read, he pays absolutely nothing in child support for those kids. The mother is having to do it all by herself, without any assistance from him. What a gigantic douche...

The twins are typical teens they are not stars, they are kids. Moms get exasperated with their children when they behave like that and it's that simple. No big deal. Jon should simply crawl back into his weak "willied" self and stop talking about his children, his ex and himself.

Wow, that was brutal to watch. Maybe if Kate spent more time with her kids, developing their social skills on a real life level instead of spending so much time on herself and trying to look like some sort of "celebrity", they might be able to articulate a bit better..They are clearly tired of having to pretend and their confusion is obvious. It's hard to be fake and have everyone else around you play along when they know the truth.

Sorry but People Magazine also have egg on their faces...who they interview for their story? Just Kate? Looks like People got duped into thinking everything is fine instead of getting the real story.

Those poor girls look miserable and uncomfortable, especially the one on the left. Who can blame them, that family is a mess!

Why do people bash the dad. He moved away from everything, and got a real job. He isn't seeking out the spotlight. The media found him and asked him a question. He didn't call a press conference or schedule his own Today show appearance. The last time a reporter tried to find him he gave her a warning shot to get out. A lot of you people need to get your heads out of your asses.

I know he is no prize, but there is no doubt that Kate is an abusive piece of work!!!!! We all saw her verbally abuse, belittle and control her husband and the kids on tv knowing cameras were there! Can you IMAGINE her behavior in private? Even her former Dancing With The Stars partner said she is an impossible bitch. SO sad!!!!
