Jon Gosselin took "a lot of abuse" during his decade-long marriage to his soon-to-be ex-wife Kate, he tells Chris Cuomo on Good Morning America in his first interview since the infamous reality couple filed their divorce papers. Gosselin, 32, says he received little thanks from his wife for playing stay-at-home dad to the couple’s brood of eight while she did the publicity circuit.

"She'll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn't going anywhere," he says. "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.'" (More Jon Gosselin stories.)
