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

Catherine on

He totally makes me want to puke ! Poor Kate I know she isn’t perfect but her and the kids don’t deserve this . She will come out on top in the long run ! I bet it will be a long time before you ever see her running around town with a new guy because she puts her kids first and he will continue to be a jack ass but that’s okay time heals all. Kate continue to know that God is with you and knows what’s best for you .

Over it on

I am so sick of seeing every tool wear this clothing. These are the same people who turned their nose up at tattoo culture before every retard was wearing this stuff. How does jon know anything about fashion and design?? Shame of the designer for enlisting him b/c of a famous show. SELLOUT

Jen on

I hope he rots! It’s nice he has his newer, younger girlfriend now that he got tired of his responsibilities at home and his wife. So he gets to run off and play and go back home when it suits him? Yea, he cares about his kids!! Can you say immaturity?

Pam on

What a waste case. I feel sorry for Kate and those kids. I hope that loser ends up with nothing.

Shawna on

His mistress will be able to really help with the kids line, considering she’s practically still a kid herself…..way to make yourself look like a tool, Jon.

Seinna on

SO let me see, the guy lives under his wife’s tyranny for 10 years, gets b*tched at constantly, leaves (and we don’t know how long they have been seperated or what exactly transpired between Jon and Kate)and he is the bad guy. Kate is no fool, she is playing all of you for one. She knows how to manipulate the press and the public, she did it to Jon for years. Jon looks happy (can you name a show in the last 3 years where he has been?) How long would all of you pious people wait if you had a shot at being with someone who didn’t belittle you constantly?…Glass Houses people

Lorna Snow on

Ick! Can you say major not even mid life crisis? As new as his separation from his wife is, he should be trying just a little to fly under the radar. . .mayeb? Sorry to see Glassman’s daughter involved with the situation, too. Oh yeah, and lets continue to use our kids for a really good source of income!

Jon gosselin is a big fat cheat. I hope kate him to the cleaners.

Lucy on

I know that Kate has been somewhat overbearing and mean to Jon but this is too much. Kate doesn’t deserve this. I don’t know what he thinks he’s going to be able to do, he’s got 8 kids for cryin’ out loud. He made his bed and he’s got to sleep in it. Kate has stepped up and taken responsibility, Jon needs to do the same instead of frolicking with barely legal girls. It’s like he doesn’t care what he’s doing to his children and how they may feel about it. He could’ve given it more time before moving on to someone else.

Alicia on

I used to love J&K + 8, & towards the end I felt sorry for both of them. They’ve both made mistakes, & I think their marriage could have been saved with counseling. But now… Jon has gone way too far. I don’t feel sorry for him anymore. I agree with Chris… Jon disgusts me now.
