Jon Gosselin Feels "Horrible" for Kids After Today Show Debacle

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jon Gosselin hates to say he told us so, but...

For the past few weeks, the former reality star has been trashing his ex-wife, referring to Kate Gosselin as broke and greedy and expressing outrage that she still used the ex-couple's children for publicity.

Then, this morning, this happened:

Kate dragged twins Cara and Mady on The Today Show to dispel the notion that they've been ruined by all the attention... only for the kids to grow silent when the topic arose.

And for Kate to scold the on national television.

"I felt really bad for Mady and Cara because I love them and they're just put in this situation," Jon told TMZ this afternoon about watching the awkward interview. "It was like deer in the headlights."

Jon went on to say th debacle "just kind of proves my point of Kate bringing the kids out instead of her just sort of doing it herself. It all blew up in everyone's face and I feel horrible for my children because now they're going to have to deal with the public."

Jon has maintained for a long time now that the family is financially stable and the children should be away from the spotlight.

He believes Kate is using them to feed her bank account and her ego and that she manipulated them into making this television appearance.

"In my heart that's what I believe, that's how I feel," he said. "Can I prove it? I can't prove it, but you can't take my feelings away from me. I feel that way,"

This should now be an easy one to answer, but: Whose side are you on in this parental battle?

John is the jerk who got the whole family into a bad broke situation in the first place. Him always cutting Kate down in public still just shows his immaturity and that he needs counseling. Why doesnt Kate get a restraining order against him talking puclicly about her and the kids, to shut his abusive mouth up. He is the problem and her having to raise his 8 kids which is a morning to evening job without his sorry lazy running around abusive ass being good for nothing, hasnt helped any.

BOTH parents are losers. Jon let Kate emasculate him in public for years, on and off tv. Kate, however, is an egomaniac who will do anything to put herself before anyone else in the world, including their children. Were this not the truth, she'd let the children be interviewed WITHOUT HER AROUND. Instead, she has to be center screen, controlling their every word by intimidation. Time to take the children away from her. He's a loser, but at least he isn't insane like she is.

You are absolutely right! He needs to get an extra job and pay child support, instead of taking so much time to down his ex!!

SHE needs to get a job too. She's a trained educated RN whose turned into an egomaniacal attention whore, all at the expense of her children, using her children to try to keep HERSELF center stage.

Exactly!!! No one should be talked to the way Kate talked to Jon, on tv and off of it. No wonder he left her sorry behind. What's really tragic now though is that the children have become target of her vitriolic egomaniacal nature which is shameful.

Had Kate not taken them on tv and embarrassed them like that, Jon would have had nothing to bitch about.
