NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Reality TV dad Jon Gosselin says he's returned $180,000 to a joint account he shares with his estranged wife Kate as the couple continues their bitter divorce battle.

Gosselin criticized his wife for not showing up Monday for a court hearing in the Philadelphia suburb of Norristown. He also says she still has not explained how she spent $33,000 in joint funds.

Kate Gosselin's lawyer says she supplied the information an arbitrator wanted and did not need to appear in court.

Two days of arbitration on pending divorce issues is scheduled for late November.

The TLC reality show "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" has chronicled the couple's lives while raising their eight children. The Gosselins filed for divorce in June.
