Jon Gosselin’s fifteen minutes of fame doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. In his recent interview on ABC’s special Primetime: Family secrets, the father of eight, says estranged wife Kate, would only agree to therapy with Dr. Phil.

“I was very hesitant,” Jon says. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’”

According to Jon, the session with Dr. Phil was more about fixing the image of their hit TLC show rather than their broken marriage.

“We talked about the brand and corporate things and making the brand work,” he says. “I felt it was weird. I was like, ‘Why am I here? I could be snowboarding.’ It wasn’t helping.”

Dr. Phil released a statement to ABC News saying, “I respect the Gosselins’ privacy, I have no comment on their marriage.”

During the interview, Jon previously admitted that Kate refused to go to any other kind of therapy to make their marriage work.

“I have a $22,000 therapy bill,” he says. “I mean, I tried to have marriage counseling. I did it myself. She refused to go.”

Jon Gosselin appears in his first television interview following the divorce announcement from estranged wife, Kate Gosselin. In the interview, he talks about years of abuse during their 10-year marriage.

“I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down,” he says on ABC’s Good Morning America. “She’ll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn’t going anywhere.”

He also says that Kate was always travelling while he had to stay with the kids — 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah).

“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,” Gosselin, 32, says. “I’m standing there like, ‘Oh, OK. Your mom’s gone again.’

Since the split, things have been stressful for the couple, he says. An incident occurred last month, during which the police was called into their home, because Kate unexpectedly showed up while he was spending time with the kids.

“I wouldn’t let her in the gate,” says Jon, who is still dating Hailey Glassman, the 22 year old daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s 2006 tummy tuck. “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.”
