One can’t help but wonder exactly what Jon Gosselin ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman was thinking when she post a Tweet to the Kate Gosselin Twitter feed on Sunday asking for a recipe. Frankly, had I been Kate Gosselin, I think I would have had something not too polite to say in response to such audacity. The former Kate Plus 8 reality TV star, however, was just as sweet as pie when she Tweeted back.
“Hey @kateplysmy8 can you share the recipe for the Monkey Munch. It’s so yummy, my mom & I never seem to make it as tasty as you did,” Hailey Glassman posted on her Twitter feed Sunday.
Jon Gosselin has some words of advice for ex-wife Kate Gosselin now that her reality TV show Kate Plus 8 has been cancelled. He thinks now would be a really good time for Kate Gosselin to realize that “reality TV is not a career.”
Jon and Kate Gosselin started out on their reality TV journey together, along with their eight kids, on Jon and Kate Plus 8. The stress of life on television, however, proved too much for the couple and they divorced in 2009.
Although Jon Gosselin briefly pursued more Hollywood gigs (and a handful of girlfriends), he has now settled down to a relatively quiet life as a computer support engineer. Kate Gosselin, meanwhile, has continued to try to keep her and her children in the public eye as much as possible. Now that TLC has cancelled Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin told People she’s “freaking out” about how she is going to support her eight kids.
“Things will work out the way they should work out,” Jon Gosselin told RumorFix.com about hearing the news of the cancellation. “Obviously, there are families out there that have several kids â€“ people work normal jobs, and things work out.”
Jon Gosselin, who pays child support on his eight kids and says he sees them “a lot,” thinks his ex-wife should focus on getting “back to a normal life — a simple life.” As for whether or not Kate Gosselin will be able to keep the farmhouse in Pennsylvania where she and the kids live (and Jon and Kate spent their final days as a couple), Jon Gosselin seemed unconcerned. “I don’t have a farm on 24 acres and the kids seem to have a great time at my house,” he said.”
“I told them I will work my fingers to the bone to make sure that they can stay here and go to their school,” Kate Gosselin told People. “There are no guarantees in life for anyone, but they know that I’m giving it my best shot.”
The final episode of Kate Plus 8 airs on September 12 on TLC.
TLC is ready to give a smack down to former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin in court – and they’re dragging girlfriend Hailey Glassman into the fight. TLC has subpoenaed Glassman and Gosselin’s guy pal Michael Lohan into court as witnesses in the network’s breach of contract lawsuit against the reality TV dad.
TLC filed the lawsuit against Jon Gosselin last month, claiming the JonÂ & Kate Plus 8 star violated his contract agreements by making TV appearances without the network’s permission. Gosselin is scheduled to appear in court on December 14. TLC has filed subpoenas for his girlfriend, Hailey Glassman and friend Michael Lohan, as well as Gosselin’s lawyer, bodyguard and talent agent, to also appear in court as witnesses against him.
Michael Lohan, who has stirred up controversy himself in an ongoing battle with daughterLindsay Lohan, has been called in to testify about business dealings with Jon Gosselin. Lohan has publicly stated he was working on an idea for a reality show about divorced dads with Gosselin at one point.
As for Hailey Glassman, she could prove bad news for her on-again, off-again boyfriend. Obviously she has no problems talking about things that make Jon Gosselin look bad in the press. Just recently, Glassman appeared in a TV interviewand called Gosselin “emotionally abusive” and prone to “mantrums”.
Former nanny Stephanie Santoro, who claims she had an affair with the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star, says Jon Gosselin has had suicidal thoughts over the stress of his questionable fame and impending divorce from Kate Gosselin. Santoro, who alleges she slept with Jon Gosselin while he was involved with girlfriend Hailey Glassman, said she fears for the reality TV dad’s life.
“He said he was going to kill himself,” Stephanie Santoro told RadarOnline.com. The former Gosselin babysitter claims Jon Gosselin called her after he and girlfriend Hailey Glassman broke up and said he “was going to end it all… [Jon said] that he couldn’t handle it anymore. That his kids would be better taken care of by Kate if he wasn’t around.”
As for Hailey Glassman, Jon’s so-called girlfriend, she’s also spilling her guts about her relationship with the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star everywhere she gets a chance. In an interview on The Insider, Glassman said when Jon and Kate Gosselin first split, Jon would “just sit there and ask ‘Why? Why? Why?’ and just sat there and cried. And he didn’t understand… It’s like he can’t handle somebody leaving him.”
Perhaps all these woman dissing him in the media has finally gotten through to him. Jon Gosselin publicly apologized for his recent behavior this week and said he is “committed to making things right with Hailey as well as Kate and especially my children. I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself.”
Haven’t you been given enough opportunities already, Mr. Gosselin?
Jon Gosselin‘s party girl paramour Hailey Glassman says she is being “emotionally abused” by the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star. In an interview with The Insider, set to air Thursday, Glassman says Jon Gosselin is “frustrated and angry” and taking it out on her.
“He’ll call me and take his anger out on me,” Hailey Glassman says in the interview. “He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused. I cry and say, ‘Why are you so mean to me?'” However, despite Jon Gosselin’s treatment of her, Glassman did not confirm rumors the two have officially broken up. Although, after this interview, Jon Gosselin would be a total idiot not to dump Glassmanâ€™s fame-whoring ass if they are still an item.
“I don’t want to leave him all alone. I love him but I dislike him at times. When I love someone, I would never hurt them.” Hailey Glassman also claims Jon Gosselin has “trouble with the truth… he will dance and dance around his lies. He’s like Jekyll and Hyde.”
Even so, Glassman apparently can’t shake her feelings for Gosselin. “I love him, but as for my family and I, he needs to regain our trust.”
Most amusingly, Glassman says she wants her “name to be forgotten” by the media. The problem is, she is saying this while prostituting herself out for yet another media interview. Sorry, Hailey, it’s hard to believe you crave anonymity when you won’t shut the hell up whenever the media comes knocking at your door.
Despite rumors floating around on various tabloid sites, Jon Gosselin is NOT going to hook up with Octomom Nadya Suleman for a new dating reality show. Although we did laughingly suggest it might be a good career move for Jon Gosselin, we didn’t honestly think anyone would really claim such a thing was actually going to happen.
Apparently though, In Touch Weekly thought spreading the rumor Octomom and Jon Gosselin really were going to get it on for a new reality show would be a hot ratings grab. The tabloid reportedly went crazy with an obviously ridiculous (and alleged) quote from former Cheaters producer Bobby Goldstein, who said Octomom Nadya Suleman and Jon Gosselin had agreed to sign on for a reality dating show.
â€œI heard that Nadya has an insatiable desire to spend time with Jon and to put their families together,” Goldstein allegedly told the tabloid. “And I had the idea that this could be a very entertaining fiasco.â€
Just for the record, although Suleman has admitted to a crush on Jon Gosselin, reps for both the Octomom and Gosselin have denied any involvement in a dual reality show featuring the two hooking up. “This is the first I’ve even heard of it,” Gosselin’s manager said. “This isn’t happening.”
InÂ Monday night’sÂ episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin shared her dreams of becoming a TV and movie star. Because, apparently, she’s just so super good at it!
â€œIâ€™ve done enough years on TV that I feel like itâ€™s a normal, comfortable, natural place to be,” Kate Gosselin said onÂ the ‘question and answer’ episode ofÂ Jon & Kate Plus 8. “Iâ€™d love to be in a movie at some point, Iâ€™d love to be the voice of a cartoon character in a movie for my kids. I think that would be fun.â€
Fun for her, we’re sure. After all, without that Hollywood paycheck, how is she going to afford her full-time nanny? Her part-time nanny? Her house cleaner? Her landscapers? Her shoe habit and hair stylist? Fame and fortune is like crack, once you smoke it, you just can’t ever go back – even if it ruins your life, kills your marriage and corrupts your children.
The sad thing is, someone out there will probably give her what she wants – for a while. As long as Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin remain a tabloid headline, there will be sleazeballs willing to cash in on the free publicity. Kate Gosselin has already taped a pilot for one talk show already. TLC is still hoping to get Kate Plus 8 off the ground, despite Jon Gosselin’s injunction against any further taping of his children. Kate Gosselin has got her mouth on the fame bit and she’s not likely to let go anytime soon.
The saddest thing is that Kate Gosselin doesn’t seem to realize the only real reason why anyone wants her at this point is to exploit her and her family drama – not because she’s all that interesting herself. Hollywood will probably be happy to use and abuse her until the public loses interest – and then they’ll dump her off into obscurity again without a second thought.
