Jon Gosselin: New Girlfriend, New Design Gig

07/13/2009 at 10:10 AM ET


Just weeks after splitting from his wife of 10 years, Jon Gosselin is back in the spotlight with a new career and a new girlfriend. Gosselin, 32, turned up in St. Tropez hand-in-hand with Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s tummy tuck in 2006. The lovebirds spent the weekend along the French Riviera so Gosselin could finalize a deal to design his own line of children’s clothing with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier. Glassman will also have a hand in creating the kid-friendly fashions. “She’ll have a lot of input with Christian,” Gosselin told PEOPLE of Hailey’s involvement. “And I will, too.” And don’t forget the plus eight — Gosselin tells PEOPLE that his eight kids, who spent the weekend with Kate at the family’s Pennsylvania home, will model his designs in ads for the line. Audigier tells PEOPLE that he approached Gosselin with the idea after noticing that the reality show dad often wore his tattoo-inspired T-shirts on Jon and Kate Plus Eight. “He’s huge,” says the French designer, who may also collaborate with Gosselin on a specialty motorcycle collection. “Everyone knows this family. And everyone will know our clothes. They’ll be fun, easy clothes for kids.” But it wasn’t all work for Jon and Hailey. During the extended weekend aboard Audigier’s yacht, Gosselin and Glassman lunched at the Tahiti Club before cruising around the bay in a cigarette boat. The pair also went shopping at some of the high-end boutiques around St. Tropez, including Hermes and Prada. “They couldn’t take their eyes off each other,” a friend of Audigier’s tells PEOPLE. “They looked so happy to just be together.” “I feel very relaxed,” Gosselin told PEOPLE during his weekend escape. But, “every ten minutes I keep thinking about the kids and missing them.” A reunion will come soon enough: Gosselin is due back home on Tuesday where he will start filming new episodes of the family’s TLC series, which returns from hiatus on Aug. 3. — Michelle Tan; reporting by Jen Garcia and Dana Kennedy

I just can not believe how someone can be he don´t think in his children first


The clothes are really cool, much better than the boring clothes that are out there for kids now, all Gap look alike stuff. This will finally bring variety for my six kids, can’t wait to buy ’em!!!

So now we know why Kate had to keep this guy in check..when loose he is dumber than a box of nails.
I hope Kate finds a nice, stable and mature guy to take care of her, give her some emotional stabiltiy and be a role model father for the kids.

What a pig! Kate’s plastic surgeon’s daughter…hmm..I wonder how long this has been going on!! He is a true piece of work. Kate may be a b*%&h but at least she is at home.

You all make me sick you complained about Kate being a B**ch, and always putting him down, now that the are not together and he has moved on, you complain, so what is it. I think he should move on, He has the right to have a life. the kids will be taken care of by both parents. So it is time to let this all rest and the adults to get on with their lives. The kids will always know they are loved and that is what counts.
