Jon Reveals Gosselin Family Secrets

In his first sit-down interview since splitting from his wife, Jon Gosselin lets Kate have it.

"I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down," he tells Good Morning America. "She'll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn't going anywhere."

Jon also says that he was the one chasing after all eight kids, while Kate traveled on her book tour.

"Well, excuse me, I'm taking care of the kids. She's on book tours, she's doing all these things. You know, she's gone a week. You know, comes back. Packs up and leaves again. I'm standing there like, 'Oh, OK. Your mom's gone again.'"

As for the fight earlier this summer that had cops at their Pennsylvania home, Jon says it was all Kate's fault.

"I wouldn't let her in the gate," Jon admitted. "I said I'm spending time with my kids ... and she's going to have to leave and she tried to cry it up with the cops and it didn't work and they told her she had to leave."

The rest of the interview will air on ABC's Primetime: Family Secrets, Sept. 8 at 10 p.m.
