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?
