Jon Gosselin complained to ABC News' Chris Cuomo how he's gone from "America's favorite dad to dirt-bag" in an interview on "Good Morning America."
"Whatever they want to write, let them write it," Gosselin told Cuomo in a discussion that aired Tuesday. "They're going to write it anyway. I've learned that lesson."
"We film it separately," Gosselin said of their TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” “She has her film crew. And I have my film crew. But I can't sit on the sofa with that woman. “
"I despise [her] because she's not speaking from the heart," he said. "Please — the stuff you tell me in private should be the stuff you tell me on TV."
Kate, in a statement to ABC, said she believed there is a line between the TV life and private life.
"While I certainly have a very different perception of how our marriage dissolved, for the sake of my children I maintain that I'm not going to go into details of aspects I believe should remain private."
