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 really don’t care what Jon and Kate do. I do however care about their children. I’ve been in education for 36 years and watched too many children come to school broken and hurt and then you expect the schools to fix them. The irresponsibility of parents never ceases to amaze me. Children carry their parents’ craziness with them their whole lives. Don’t tell me how resilient they are, because that is a lie. I just wish you could hear one fourth of the stories children have told me through the years and this includes SENIORS in high school who still are suffering from a divorce that took place when they were in elementary school. Parents must ALWAYS put their children FIRST!

As disgusted as I am by this whole thing, for the children’s sake, I really think the joke is on Jon… it just me or is his new gf similar in appearance to Kate, with long hair?! lol

Shame on Jon. Couldn’t he at least wait until the divorce was final? What a pig.

Congratulations Jon, at last you look happy. There is only so much humiliation you can stand.

What a loser. Just making money off his kids, not getting a real job. I feel so sorry for Kate, I hope she comes out of this mess smelling like a rose.


Man, what a loser. He thinks he’s awesome because he has money and a young girlfriend, but he also has 8 kids who will someday “google him”, I believe those were his words, and when they do, they will be sad and dissapointed. Not to mention embarassed. He disgusts me.

OMG!!!! She’s the daughter of the Surgeon that did Kate’s belly?!?!?!? What a slap in the face!! Like WHOA how did this “relationship” blossom?? Divorce is hard enough, but to prance around in the French Riviera with a “little girl” when he’s not even divorced, makes me ill, probably cause he feels empowered because he’s the older one and he’s using his newly developed SPINE/BACKBONE!! If Kate was/is having an affair with her body guard, at least it was done privately and not splashed all over the web and magazine covers. I can’t even think about watching this show again, it won’t be the same.

I guess he just wants to make sure Kate looks like the good one in marriage and as a mother!
Poor Kids!!!

She is a total rebound..This wont last and neither will their buisness. Can’t believe he’s out so soon with another women. Hmmmm Karma will get him.
