It looked like war when Jon Gosselin appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday and fired some pretty hard shots at wife Kate, saying he had taken a lot of abuse from her.
And the reason Jon got tough, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively, is because he wants to rehabilitate his image with the public.
“Jon thinks he’s being portrayed as the bad guy and wants to put his side of the story out there,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
Well, attacking Kate may not have been the way to do it.
Don’t expect Kate to respond immediately. She’s aware of Jon’s comments and won’t answer his charges, the source told RadarOnline.com.
Kate has done several national interviews about the breakup of the marriage and as Jon has stepped out with a series of young girlfriends, public sympathy has shifted toward Kate. When Jon tried to do an interview with a cable network, TLC jumped into action and squashed it, citing contractual violations.

Now Jon hopes to get his side of the story out and the GMA interview is his first attempt. But people close to the couple don’t think it worked. “He looked whiney,” said one source.
