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

Mr. Audigier should rethink this deal. Nobody is going to wear anything this idiot is pushing…..Love the kids, it’s to bad they have to have him.

Talk about a mid life crisis!!!! What a CREEP!

All of you have to remember that Kate is no innocent party here. Leave both Jon and Kate alone. Only they know whats going on and none of us are in a position to judge any one. This is the land of the divorce!!! Go judge your neighbor or your dad, or you own ex-husband or ex-wife. Jeez!!

Also, who in th eworld would want someone with 8 kids? I dont see longevity.

Anyone notice how Hailey resembles Kate?

The last I knew, the Gosselins were getting a divorce. We really don’t know how long Jon & Kate have been seperated. The kids will be better off without fighting parents!

He is making the biggest ass of himself. Hardy is making a big mistake. I think the majority of America has now turned on these dispicable parents who are selling their children out. My kids will never wear any clothes he, his 22 year old gf or his soon to be ex design. I hope that show is cancelled soon before those kids are too damaged!

What a complete a–. Maybe he didn’t technically cheat on Kate, but he cheated emotionally.

No more Ed Hardy for my family….Jon Gosselin has the morals of an Alley Cat.
