Kate Gosselin said that every time her eight kids spend the night at their dad Jon's NYC bachelor pad, "I basically wait for the phone call from how many of them want to come home."

Igniting a new war of words between Kate and her ex-husband Jon, Kate explained to Regis and Kelly this morning that it "is not [their] home; it doesn't feel like home to them ... they want to be at home -- in their house," which is now Kate's house in Pennsylvania. She also insinuated that Jon hadn't been spending much time with his children until recently. "It's only been three months that he's actually been spending time with them and taking them."

Jon, who's been staying out of the spotlight as of late, lashed out as his ex via Twitter:

    As much as I want to respond to numerous LIES recently claimed on Regis and Kelly, I will refrain. I have learned from the past that it’s a waste of my time and energy. I am “rising above”, and refuse to engage in any sort of public argument that could potentially harm or upset my children. My children and the people in my life know the truth, and that is what’s important.
