Kate Gosselin: My Kids Were Not Expelled!

Two of the Gosselin sextuplets were taken out of their Pennsylvania private school last month for behavior problems, and multiple sources reported that they were expelled. Kate is making a semantic distinction.

"The school would never use that word," she told People. "[Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now."

Collin and Alexis are seeing a therapist while they are home-schooled, Kate said, and she blames their issues on ex-husband Jon.

"They've been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy," she told People. "I could see that they're the ones struggling the most."

For his part, Jon has slammed Kate for keeping the kids on television, claiming the filming schedule is causing them to suffer emotionally.

"Each of them has experienced negative effects of having their lives so public. Some are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues," he tweeted.

Kate visited 'Today' on Wednesday where she told Meredith Viera about her kids' "anger issues" that are keeping them out of school.
