(Newser) – Chris Cuomo tears Jon Gosselin apart in an interview on tonight's ABC News Primetime, E! Online reports. Cuomo suggests Jon's soul-mate connection with Hailey Glassman, 22, is just a rebound effect, and laid into the possible new reality show Divorcing Dads, featuring Jon, K-Fed and Michael Lohan, asking what impression it gives his kids. "My kids don't know Michael Lohan," Gosselin retorts. "They're going to! They're going to know what you do," Cuomo insists.

Jon's claim that he and Kate aren't forcing the kids on camera "doesn't wash," Cuomo added. But Jon insisted he could win back America's affections: "It's just like the change from America's favorite dad to dirt-bag. Tomorrow I could be maybe America's favorite dad again. It could be after this interview. I don't know."
