Kate Gosselin broke her post-divorce filing silence last month on the Today Show, and estranged husband Jon has crafted a response.
"I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down," he said in an interview set to air Sept. 8 and 9 on Good Morning America. "She'll call me, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn't going anywhere."
Jon, who has recently been seen chain-smoking at Vegas nightclubs and collecting a paycheck for hosting a pool party, claims Kate's career-related neglect of their brood leaves him with full time daddy duty.
"Well, excuse me, I'm taking care of the kids," he said. "She's on book tours, she's doing all these things. You know she's gone a week ... comes back. Packs up and leaves again...I'm standing there like, 'Oh, okay. Your mom's gone again.'"
