As previously reported, Collin and Alexis Gosselin, both 6, were removed from their Pennsylvania private school last month for "violence and bullying" as their behavior reportedly continued to spiral out of control  in wake of their parents’ troubles.

“That is false, they were not expelled from school," Kate, 35, said. "We have a situation where my kids are in an academic-excelling school, where academics are pushed," adding that the heightened expectations clashed with "kids that are going through a divorce.

"The two collided and they were just not doing well with the combinations," Kate said. "They were having anger issues, they were acting out behavior things ... I felt very alone."

It is typical for schools in this situation to ask parents to remove “problem” children and make it known that the children will be expelled if they are not voluntarily removed.

Kate said the two kids have been "functioning" under the tutelage of an a early education teacher and routine therapy sessions, and added that her other six children are doing "amazingly well.

"I knew going through a divorce to watch for stuff," she said.

Kate's problems don't end there, however: When host Meredith Vieira asked her about a Tweet her ex-husband Jon sent last month, apologizing for his actions in 2009, Kate said she found his words to ring false.

"I have never personally been apologized to," she said showing frustration and anger, adding that she doesn't consider "an interview on TV or a tabloid" the appropriate venue to discuss deep-seeded family issues.

While she admitted she's forgiven Jon "for the sake of my kids," she said she's still licking her wounds from their prickly split of yesteryear.

"I am angry -- I'm hurt and I'm angry," she said, adding she doesn't dwell on the bad stuff because she doesn't "have time to waste being upset."
