Making the media rounds in the past month, Kate Gosselin has been quoted many times regarding the demise of her marriage and her ex’s “decision making.”

Now it’s Jon’s turn to go off on Good Morning America about the grating banshee who emascualted him weekly for the world to see on Jon and Kate Plus 8.

“I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down,” Jon tells ABC’s Chris Cuomo, defending himself rather passionately in an interview that will air next week.

“She’ll call me, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn’t going anywhere.”

We don’t really know what that means, but we know it’s not good.

In addition to being treated like $h!t, he says Kate’s the one who’s exploiting their kids by touring the world for business, neglecting everyone at home.

The father of eight bristles at Kate’s implication that she is the more responsible parent and that his decision making since their split has been suspect.

“Well, excuse me, I’m taking care of the kids. She’s on book tours, doing all these things. She’s gone a week, comes back. Packs up and leaves again.”

After 10 years of marriage, Gosselin laments that Kate so often abandoned the family, “I’m standing there like, “Oh, okay. Your mom’s gone again.”

Jon also talked about how fed up he was that Kate questioned his hiring of babysitter Stephanie Santoro, a waitress he was rumored to be nailing.

The entire interview with Gosselin will air on Good Morning America September 8 and 9 and on Primetime: Family Secrets, September 8 at 10 p.m.

Jon supposedly talks about girlfriend Hailey Glassman in a fashion that “surprised” the ABC News staff. Here’s a preview of Jon’s first big tell-all
