Jon Gosselin opens up about new girlfriend

July 15th, 2009 // 114 Comments

Despite the Gosselins issuing a statement that they’d no longer be issuing statements, Jon decided to talk about his relationship with potential gold-digger Hailey Glassman in the latest issue of People and also shot down rumors of their engagement. Via E! News:

“Hailey and I have been family friends for several years and only very recently began dating,” Jon Gosselin explains. “What began as friendship has grown into something more.”
He goes on:
“I genuinely enjoy spending time with her. It’s nice to be with someone who I can confide in and trust and who accepts me for who I am.
Now, the TLC reality star understands that parading around the French Riviera with some new ladyfriend right after filing for divorce is kind of a douche move, but he just wants everyone to understand he’s a regular guy and that’s what regular guys do to move forward.
“I know that my decision to appear publicly with Hailey this weekend will be scrutinized, but I hope that people can see I’m a regular guy who is going through a very difficult time in [my] life and wants to move forward.”
However, Jon denies any engagement plans to the mag, “No. We’re just having a cool time and enjoying each other.”

While I, for one, am a firm believer in the healing power of banging college chicks, I’m also a firm believer in not riding a motorcycle dressed like a 15-year-old cocknozzle. Mostly because it tends to limit access to the aforementioned healing powers regardless of how quickly you can pull up your bank account on an Ed Hardy iPhone. (You know he has one.)

    I think Jon has finally wised up. Kate is the wife from hell. She treates him like a dog and thinks she is God’s gift to the world. GUESS WHAT KATE……..
    YOUR NOT. I watched this show when she acted like a decent person. But now it turns my stomach. Kare went from sweet to a pure witch.. Shi is so money hungry it broke her marriage up. It;s a pretty sorry person that takes money ober you husband nd lids. An I bet the kuds wish Jon was still there, now she can beat them when ever she wants. When Jon was there they were a lot safer.. PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE TAKE THE SHOW OFF TV. Because it really SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I disagree Terri, Jon went from Classy Kate, to Trashy who ever he decides to be seen with next. Jon said he only was there for his children, then do your kids justice by not being a specticle in public with your girlfriends, Grow up Jon and be a Real Man, you have too much time on your hands lately, do something constructive like get a job, visit the different missionaries, go to Irac!

    Kind of sucks that all you guys are hating on asians. I admit this guy is kind of a tool, but I can assure you that has very little to do with his asian decent. Asians are gorgeous and have great genes.. i think their mixed kids are soo cute!

    Yeah what kind of ignorant sons of b*tches are you? Kick back on the racial slurs please.. its only 2010

    I’ve watched the show from the beginning, enjoyed it. Let’s face it; for the most part we are judging this family based on what they let us see. In a marriage there always has to be one person more sensible or level headed than the other. If you have two free spirited or two people that don’t plan for the future or both so spontaneous how that work, plus id neither of you planned for the future you’d probably end up broke, then divorced because all you would do is argue over money.
    MY POINT>> although Kate was too hard on Jon PUBLICALLY (meaning for “us” all to see) she tried keeping the show as real as possible, and that meant being herself. Ok call that being a bitch; but someone has to keep order in a house full of kids. Someone needs to be in charge per say. You need organization, scheduling, trust me I ran a day care for many years you can get over ORGANIZAED, to detailed, too planned out. Maybe Kate wanted everything too perfect.
    Jon didn’t want to be in the PUBLIC eye any longer, yes he LOVED the money but (threw his own admittance) he was having a hard time with it. Also admitting; when he met Kate, he was “bumming around”. In his defense everything happened quickly, fatherhood. Women mature much faster than men, so when the children came Kate was able to GROW UP.; Jon got lost in the Jon & Kate plus 8.
    When he “got lonely” he should have talked to Kate about his “needs” his wondering eye. How he WANTED to go out parting INSTEAD of going out partying. Before it got out of hand.
    There is ALWAYS A TURNING POINT IN EVERY RELATIONSHIP OR MARRIAGE WHEN YOU HAVE CHOICES TO DO THE {right thing per say or not} is this relationship worth working on or not. When you go out and disregard what you have with the other person and involve another person, no matter if it’s asking another person if you can buy them a drink, or accepting a drink bought for you, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT LEADS TO LET’S NOT PLAY STUPID…, THAT’s HOW IT STARTS…so you’ve made your choice.
    At that point Jon kissed his 9 years good bye and the show. He was being totally selfish at that point. Was there so much wrong with his marriage he couldn’t talk to Kate about. I wonder if Jon EVER REALLY STOP AND thought about the choices he was making how eventually what a divorce would bring another woman, another man being a definite role model other than HIMSELF and KATE in their children’s life. I bet he didn’t give it a second thought what a BIG INFLUENCE ANOTHER ADULT WILL HAVE ON HIS CHILDRENS LIFE ALL BECAUSE OF HIS CHOICE NOT TO TRY TO WORK ON WHAT HE THOUGHT WERE PROBLEMS IN HIS MARRIAGE.
    I think he would have come out smelling like a rose if he had approached it like a man. Worked on their (so called problems) then laid low and in time if he was still UNHAPPY after a separation then announced their getting a divorce. NOPE, what does he do show up 2 hrs late for the taping of the ANNOUNCEMENT SHOW because he had to think about what he was going to say. HE DECIDES DIVORCE, Sounded like he had to check with his 22yr. old girlfriend. Then allowing her to talk to the media how in Love they are in the month of JULY and not even one month from the filing for divorce. HOW SICKNING JON. It’s obvious you want the show to end, and you don’t care about your children’s welfare or you don’t care Kate wanted the show to go on. ARE YOU THAT MUCH OF A VENDICTIVE ASS TO TRY TO HURT HER IN EVERYWAY POSSIBLE. YOU ARE SOME PIECE OF WORK. I guess when you decided to show you had balls you came out balls to the wall per say. Whatever.
    As far as the show, he didn’t think of course how long it can go on.NOW with what he’s brought down upon it. It was a wholesome family show, values people watched to see how the children grew etc. Now it’s all about WHAT DIRTY LOOK IS KATE GOING TO BE ABLE TO HOLD IN WHEN JON IS AROUND. (That’s sad Jon) Your kids deserved better, and frankly so did Kate, yes she was opinionated but TALK TO HER, I’M SURE IF YOU GOT THE BALLS ENOUGH TO SAY, I’m about ready to cheat on you I’m so frustrated with our marriage, WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING… I CAN’T TAKE THE WAY YOU TALK TO ME…OR SOMETHING ANYTHING…
    HEY JON I THINK YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN KATES ATTENTION, because have you noticed Kate still hasn’t taken off her ring. She’s hurt, probably devastated, she never expected you to cheat on her and even if you did, I can almost bet money on the fact she didn’t expect you to WALK AWAY FROM HER AND YOUR KIDS, SHE EXPECTED YOU TO WORK ON YOUR MARRIAGE AND NEVER LEAVE YOUR FAMILY.
    After all those vows you took if I can recall they were for better or worse and they were till death do you two part.
    I’m sorry Jon its NEVER TOO LATE YOUR NOT DIVORCED YET, STOP ALL THIS CRAP AND TALK TO KATE, SCREW THE CAMERAS, and SCREW EVERYONE ELSE. THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT SHOULD MATTER TO YOU ARE YOURSELF, KATE AND YOUR CHILDREN AND TOO BAD WHAT EVERYONE ELSE THINKS.
    I sincerely hope you wise up before it’s too late, meaning you wake up and you are divorced!

    SORRY FOR THE REPEAT. MY BUTTON STUCK…

    Ordinary men dont take off for france with there 22 year old “girl” friend and leave their 8 children behind. What ever Kate is or is not I am sick of hearing Jon use her as an excuse for his actions. Grow up! How is cheating on his marriage (he is still legally married), moving to New York, having a 22 year old beer drinking/ doop smoking girlfriend, taking of to France, hanging out with a ex-call girl and Michael Lohan, can anyone explain to me how this is putting his children first. He says he is only 32. So his children are only 8 and 5. Did he think about how old he was when he was bringing these children into this world. Jon Gosselin is the poster boy for the midlife crisis’. He said “what are my children going to think when they google me?” Jon has an excuse for everything. JACKASS!
