Jon Gosselin: New Girlfriend, New Design Gig

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

WHY WOULD HE LEAVE KATE FOR SOMEONE THAT LOOKED LIKE THAT! SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE IS 60 YEARS OLD!!

Seriously, Jon? I love this family and used to believe that they had a fairy tale wedding. Him stepping out with a new girlfriend weeks after he filed for divorce is in poor taste. And, he’s dating the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon?!?!? Jon should be focusing on his children and attempting to lay low in order for his reputation to recover fully, not galavanting around with a younger model in France. I have lost a lot of respect for Jon, and I hope Kate is coping well.

He makes me sick..I can’t stand him! Not a care in the world, I will NEVER buy a Ed Hardy t-shirt now. This guy is a loser!

Can you say, “Mid-life crisis?”

I always felt sorry for John on the show but now I just think that he is the lowest of the low for showing off his new ‘GIRLFRIEND’ so soon after the split. Show some class!!

Melissa on

Good for him. She always put her traveling and career first.
