It seems Jon and Kate Gosselin just can't agree on anything.
After Jon told Oprah Winfrey on the Nov. 3 episode of Where Are They Now that his children have "development" problems as a result of the family's former reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8, his ex-wife took to her blog to defend her kids.
"I find it very heart breaking that my children's father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the 'development' of our children," she wrote on Monday. "These opinions are, in reality, value judgments and they are based on his limited visits (albeit mutually agreed upon)."

Things aren't getting better between Jon and Kate Gosselin.
"I wish her the best in all that she does, but [we're] just moving in totally two different directions, just totally not on the same page at all about anything," the former reality dad says of his ex-wife in an interview with Oprah Winfrey airing Sunday.
They are technically co-parenting their eight kids, but communication is minimal, Jon says, and it's not healthy for the children.

Former reality TV star turned waiter Jon Gosselin reportedly pulled a gun on a photographer in Pennsylvania on Friday.
According to TMZ, the erstwhile Jon & Kate Plus 8 star got upset when a shutterbug followed him home from his new job waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.
She allegedly trailed him off the main roads and onto a dirt road as he headed to his isolated country cabin (where he has no Internet or TV), and when she whipped out her camera and started taking pics, Gosselin, 36, angrily approached her and allegedly pulled a gun out of the back of his pants.

Jon Gosselin admits he was "nervous" when he began waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.
Just a few years ago, he'd been on top of the world, starring in the top-rated TLC reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 and co-writing a New York Times bestseller, but a messy divorce in 2009 ended all that.
While his ex-wife Kate and their eight kids remained in the couple's $1.3 million Pennsylvania home, he moved out, and admits in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight that it's been "next to near impossible to find work."

Reality TV star Kate Gosselin has filed a lawsuit accusing her ex-husband Jon of stealing her hard drive and hacking into her phone and computer to get material for a tell-all book.
The federal lawsuit says he took the material for a book called Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.
The suit, filed Monday in Philadelphia, says the book was written by her ex-husband's friend, writer Robert Hoffman, but has since been pulled from Amazon because the material was obtained illegally.

While Kate Gosselin is still adjusting to life away from the TV cameras, her former costar – and former husband – Jon Gosselin is quite happy outside the spotlight. Living in a small cabin roughly 30-minutes away from the house Kate shares with the kids, Jon is still miles away from the kind of adventure-packed life he used to have.
"It's more rural, more of a farm community," he says of his home now. As for his activities with his kids, whom he sees once during the week and every other weekend, he says, "We have backyard barbecues, we go to Walmart."

It's been more than two years since Kate Gosselin and her brood of eight – twins Mady and Cara, 12, and sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel, Leah and Aaden, 9 – appeared on their own TV series, and the single mom is decidedly humble about her circumstances.
"I'm living very carefully these days," Gosselin tells PEOPLE in its latest issue, on newsstands Friday.
Now that her TLC reality show is a thing of the past, the matriarch is making ends meet "piecing and patching together" an income from a variety of projects, she says.

After a photo was leaked online showing Kate Gosselin making what many are calling an apparent racist gesture – slanting her eyes – the former reality TV star is defending her actions.
Gosselin, 38, writes on her blog that she's "the last person [who] could be called a racist." In fact, the photo (which she says was private and never intended to be shared online) reminds her of happier times with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, with whom she was "goofing off" in the picture years ago.
