Kate Gosselin: Going Broke? On Verge of Losing Kids?

According to a new report, Kate Gosselin is not enjoying a very merry Christmas.

And she may have an even worse new year.

Kate Plus a Pair

The mother of eight (that's still so very hard to believe... she's a mother of EIGHT!) is allegedly suffering through some pretty severe financial hardships.

She somehow managed to convince TLC to air a new season of Kate Plus 8 this past year, but only three episodes aired over the summer.

Moreover, Gosselin does not have anywhere near the clout she once possessed.

Ratings haven't been strong for that program for years now, meaning she couldn't command a very high salary during recent negotiations.

Those three episodes didn't yield Gosselin much in the way of revenue - and there are no plans, as far as we know, for any more to hit the air.

Don't just take our word for these issues, however.

Gosselin Children

Their parents may suck, but these kids are adorable. We pray for their future.

This is what an insider recently told Life & Style:

"Kate no longer has the income she once had from the show. The money is running out fast .... Private school alone costs about $150,000 a year."

Seriously, simply raising eight kids is a very expensive endeavor.

Many fans of the reality star likely aren't even aware that Gosselin used to work as a nurse.

This has the potential to be a highly-paid occupation, but there's one problem:

"She's let her nursing license lapse," the aforementioned source explains. "And she hasn’t been a nurse in so long anyway.

Not having enough money to afford basic needs for her kids is one thing; but Gosselin also now fears that her monetary situation will open the door to her actually losing her kids.

"That’s Kate's biggest fear," the unnamed insider alleges. "She dreads Jon will have more say and possibly even more custody which she's fought nonstop to keep from him."

Annoying ex-husband Jon is reportedly ready to pounce.

Said someone with knowledge of the circumstances to Hollywood Life in November:

"Jon's one and only goal in life right now is getting more time with his kids. He's doing everything he can to win their next custody battle."

Indeed, things may soon get very explosive between the Gosselins.

It's not as though they're known for resolving disputes in an amicable and peaceful manner regardless of what's at stake.

So you can imagine how ugly it may get when the future of their sons and daughters are up for legal debate.

Earlier this year, Jon took an IT job. He now has a steady flow of income.

Combined with Kate going in the opposite financial direction, the estranged former spouses may find themselves standing across from a judge at some point in the near future.

And, as previously reported, Jon will stop at nothing to crush his ex in court.

Buckle up, celebrity gossip fans.

Jon and Kate Plus AWKWARD

Jon and Kate Gosselin Reunite; Things are Weird

Kate Gosselin may have heard about Jon's new girlfriend.

Returning from a romantic weekend jaunt to St. Tropez, France, with Hailey Glassman yesterday, Jon Gosselin was seen at the family's Wernersville, Pa., home.

Jon and Kate played with their eight kids outside, but barely spoke to each other. With people saying he's secretly engaged to someone else, it's kinda awkward.

Kate goofed around with her children, even riding a tricycle herself, and while Jon Gosselin joined in on the fun, he and Kate didn't interact very much at all.

Both Jon and Kate have pledged to focus on the needs of their eight children as they go forward with their divorce, which will end a tumultuous 10-year union.

"Our goal is to do the very best for our children," they said in a statement last month, echoing the theme of the last new episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

J. GosselinGrating

Jon and Kate Gosselin in happier times. Or at least previous times.

Recently, the couple put their differences aside while they celebrated the Fourth of July as a family. That appeared to be a civil, even pleasant affair.

But that was before Jon went public with Hailey Glassman, his 22-year-old ditzy, party animal, possibly-bisexual girlfriend and the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate's post-sextuplets tummy tuck operation. Pretty rough.

After their odd playtime, Kate packed her bags, hugged her kids and drove off, leaving Jon with the brood. No word on how many fist-pumps ensued.

A observer reports that after Kate left, Jon spent a lot of time on the phone outside and, from what they could tell, "looked very angry and frustrated."

Wonder if Hailey Glassman's already cheating on him ...

Jon and his new piece do St. Tropez, each other.

Former Lesbian Lover of Hailey Glassman to Jon Gosselin: Watch Your Back!

Joy Lawlor, who claims she was Hailey Glassman’s lesbian lover for three years, has a stern warning for Jon Gosselin: Hailey will wreck your life!

“You are wasting your time with Hailey. She’ll destroy you,” Joy said.

Hailey Glassman and Jon Gosselin went public after Jon and Kate Gosselin announced they were ending their marriage on an episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Jon, 32, took Hailey, 22, to France over the weekend. Meanwhile details of Hailey’s wild party girl past thrust her into the spotlight back home.

Now Joy Lawlor is warning Jon Gosselin that he has no idea what he’s stepped into and that Hailey Glassman is just using him to become famous.

“The last thing Jon needs to do is stick around that woman,” Lawlor said in an interview with Radar Online. “Hailey will use him to make herself famous and then she will leave him for someone else she can profit from."

“Anyone, be they male or female, is a target. She just wants to make people do whatever she wishes. That’s what she is going to do to Jon. The best thing he could do is get as far away as possible from her. She is just toxic.”

Joy Lawlor, 23, was at student at Indiana University.

There's where Hailey contacted her through MySpace.

“I was 18, studying biology and I put on my profile that I was a lesbian,” she said. “Hailey said she was interested in going to IU. She also said she was interested in lesbianism. When she finally joined IU she said it had mainly been because of me."

“We became close and began making out in my apartment. Soon she told me she loved me,” says Joy, but things started to go downhill. “It was Hailey who introduced me to cocaine. I did it with her in her dorm room. She was also smoking marijuana.”

This class act? We would never have guessed ...

Lawlor said of Hailey: “For a girl so young she was very wild, both for drugs and for sex. She kept saying that I was her first lesbian love but I didn’t believe her."

“I was having a great time with Hailey at IU and all my lesbian friends liked her. But having one girl clearly wasn’t enough for Hailey, she kept begging me to have threesomes with her and another girl." That's how it always unravels ...

Jon Gosselin Engaged to Hailey Glassman, Tabloid Reports

In the most hilarious wedding rumor we've heard in some time, In Touch Weekly is reporting in its new issue that Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman are engaged.

Wow. And we thought OK! Magazine's story about Debbie Rowe demanding $100 million in exchange for giving up custody of Michael Jackson's kids was absurd.

According to this reputable celebrity news source, Jon and his new party animal girlfriend decided to tie the knot after he proposed on their trip to St. Tropez.

Reportedly, the couple is already planning the wedding and entertaining the idea of getting hitched in Las Vegas. We're definitely holding our breath for that.

Jon Gosselin Engaged?

An "insider" told the magazine that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 papa gave Hailey a $180,000 engagement ring featuring four black diamonds surrounding a skull.

While that does sound like the sort of thing a d-bag such as Jon Gosselin might pick out, there is no way he is possibly engaged to Hailey Glassman, since:

  • His divorce proceedings with Kate Gosselin are barely underway, making it impossible to legally marry Hailey anytime soon even if he wanted to.
  • This would torpedo any chance of Jon & Kate Plus 8 coming back on the air, and face it, dude has eight mouths to feed and needs the money.
  • Appealing as it may be to date someone who is the complete opposite of grating wife Kate, no way Jon marries this complete ditz. No way.

Come on. Look at this piece of work. Does this look like a model stepmom to you? Click to enlarge more Hailey Glassman pictures below and see our point:

Jon Gosselin Returns to U.S., Hailey Glassman AWOL

The embattled, Ed Hardy-wearing Jon Gosselin returned to the United States after a weekend trip to France - sans his new girlfriend Hailey Glassman.

Although the two were nearly inseparable in St. Tropez and Cannes, Hailey Glassman was nowhere to be found as Jon arrived at JFK airport Tuesday evening and walked through baggage claim and the currency exchange solo.

Confronted by a TMZ cameraman as he smoked a cig outside, a remarkably calm and patient Jon Gosselin answered a number of impromptu questions:

  • On whether he is launching a children's clothing line with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audiger: "Maybe. I didn't sign anything yet."
  • On future episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 there are: "I think there are 34 left to film." On whether he will be in them: "Umm, yeah."
  • On where Hailey Glassman went: [silent, shrugs shoulders]
  • On how Kate Gosselin is taking all of this, with him being out with all these girlfriends and whatnot: "I guess you'd have to ask Kate."
  • On whether his new girlfriend a negative impact on his kids: "I'm not allowed to discuss it, I don't want to get in trouble with TLC."

Jon Gosselin at JFK

It turns out Hailey Glassman "stayed in France" because Jon "had to come home to work." Doing what, he didn't say. Mow the lawn? Model Bluetooth headsets? Get paid to spend time with his eight kids in their Crooked Houses? We may never know.

Jon Gosselin is not a clothing designer

Despite both Christian Audigier and Jon Gosselin telling media outlets the two were starting a children's clothing line together, Audigier's reps began denying the project today. Us Weekly reports: "Christian is absolutely not starting a kids' cloth ...read full story


Hailey Glassman: Dating Jon Gosselin to Get Famous, Always a Party Animal, Upset By Celebrity Gossip Coverage

Is Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend out to be a star herself?

Sources tell Us Weekly that Hailey Glassman, 22, whose father performed Kate Gosselin's 2006 tummy tuck operation, tried out for MTV's Real World and Oxygen's Bad Girls Club and is dating the newly-separated Jon "to get famous."

"I think after realizing she had a connection to Jon through her father and that Jon and Kate's marriage was rocky, [Hailey] saw an opportunity to get famous," a Hailey Glassman pal (hopefully one of the ones in these racy pictures) said.

James Appleton, who describes himself as a Glassman "hookup friend," says his f*%k buddy dumped him just as news she was dating Jon Gosselin broke.

"A couple days later a mutual friend was like, 'Oh hey, your girl Hailey is pretty famous. She's dating this older guy who has like eight kids,'" says Appleton.

But if she thought being Jon Gosselin's new girlfriend would be her ticket to fame, Hailey Glassman clearly didn't think about the bad press she'd receive.

She's reportedly unhappy with how she's portrayed in the celebrity gossip world.

Hailey Glassman: Smokin

"U.S. press is all over stories about her being some slutty party girl with a history of arrests," a source says of the pothead. "She was pretty upset tonight."

Hey, it's not our fault she posted a picture of herself doing a face plant into a wall on Facebook. Take those pics down, teens. No good comes of them.

However you want to look at it, Hailey Glassman, who is said to be working with Jon and Christian Audigier on a kids clothing line, is quite a night owl.

"She's one of those crazy party animals," a source tells People, adding that during her time at Indiana University, she never had a steady boyfriend, but instead "would probably be the girl who would get on top of the bar and start dancing."

Adds another source: "I've seen her dance with a stripper at a party."

Glassman's wild side is reflected by the fact that she has had a couple of encounters with the police, including a 2005 arrest for possession of marijuana.

Christian Audigier Denies Jon Gosselin Fashion Partnership

Despite reports - and quotes from Jon Gosselin himself - that he and Ed Hardy fashion designer Christian Audigier spent the weekend finalizing a deal to launch a children's clothing line, the designer's rep now says no such project is happening.

"Christian is absolutely not starting a kids' clothing line with Jon," the rep said. "As of right now, there is no clothing line in the works between them at all."

Hmm. Think Kate pulled the plug on this endeavor when she saw Jon Gosselin and his new girlfriend parading around France in the celeb gossip tabloids?

Gosselin - an Ed Hardy fan - and his 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman spent the weekend on board Audigier's yacht in St. Tropez in the French Riviera.

On Sunday, E! reported the father of eight and Audigier met up in France to go over a possible business partnership. There were pics of them together.

"We would like to do a line of children's clothing," Audigier told E! News.

Jon Gosselin Fashion

Jon Gosselin hearts his Ed Hardy t-shirts.

When asked about the collaboration with Audiger Sunday, Jon was all about it, and said his new girlfriend was supposedly going to be involved as well.

“She’ll have a lot of input with Christian,” Jon Gosselin told People about Hailey Glassman and her contributions to their new fashion foray. “And I will, too.”

So both Audiger and Jon Gosselin are on record with reputable sources about the deal, so it wasn't just a rumor. Yup. Kate had her lawyer squash this real fast.

Oh well. At least Jon can keep rocking his Ed Hardy t-shirts (with Bluetooth of course) back in Pennsylvania and give Audiger some free advertising that way.

Jon Gosselin, Hailey Glassman to Launch Kids Clothing Line

Just a few weeks after splitting from his wife of 10 years, Jon Gosselin is back in the spotlight with a new career and a new girlfriend, Hailey Glassman.

Hailey, the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate Gosselin’s tummy tuck in 2006, accompanied Jon to the French Riviera over the weekend.

The reason for the trip? So Jon Gosselin could finalize a deal to design his own clothing line for kids (really) with Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier.

The best part? Party girl Hailey Glassman, whose mug shot was leaked online earlier today, will also have a hand in creating the kid-friendly fashions.

“She’ll have a lot of input with Christian,” Jon Gosselin told People when asked about Hailey’s involvement in their new fashion foray. “And I will, too.”

Jon also said that his eight kids, who spent the weekend with Kate Gosselin at the family’s Pennsylvania home, will model his designs in ads for the line.

Nice to see that the tabloid frenzy, contentious separation and the hiatus of Jon and Kate Plus 8 haven't stopped them from pimping out their offspring.

Jon Gosselin, Hailey Glassman

Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman take in the St. Tropez scene.

Christian Audigier says he approached Gosselin with the idea after noticing that the TV dad often wore his tattoo-inspired T-shirts on Jon and Kate Plus 8.

“He’s huge,” says the French designer, “Everyone knows this family. And now everyone will know our clothes. They’ll be fun, easy clothes for kids.”

During the weekend aboard Audigier’s yacht, Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman lunched at the Tahiti Club before cruising around the bay in a boat.

The hot couple went shopping at some high-end boutiques around St. Tropez, including Hermes and Prada. “They couldn’t take their eyes off each other,” a friend of Audigier’s says of Jon and Hailey. “They looked so happy to just be together.”

According to E!, Jon later ditched jet-lagged Hailey at the hotel to party.

Jon partied with Audigier at the glitzy nightclub Les Caves du Roy, where he drank champagne and danced until 5 a.m.: "Their bill there could have been as much as $50,000," says a club source. "They looked like they were having a lot of fun."

After sleeping in Sunday, the couple did some shopping in St.-Tropez port. That night, Jon Gosselin left Hailey Glassman at the hotel again and went to a late, boozy dinner with Audigier at a friend's private villa.

"He looked drunk," says a source who saw Gosselin arrive.

Jon Gosselin Planted Kate Gosselin-Steve Neild Rumors

Having already gone public with new girlfriend Hailey Glassman just weeks after separating from his wife, Jon Gosselin is not the most popular guy right now.

This story is not likely to help his cause.

According to Radar Online, Jon intentionally started the rumors that his now-estranged wife Kate Gosselin was having an affair with her bodyguard Steve Neild.

“Jon wanted a divorce from Kate and he also wanted to throw attention away from himself, so he spread that rumor,” a source close to the couple said.

“Jon doesn’t like Steve Neild so he didn’t care about the repercussions.”

Kate Gosselin ended being the one who filed for divorce on June 22.

“She didn’t want to. In fact, on the day the papers went in, Kate was with her attorney crying and sobbing. She was very upset,” the source added. “Kate did not want the divorce. She did it because she felt she had to protect herself.”

Steve Neild, who is married, hasn’t been seen with Kate for several weeks, although Radar reports he is still a “consultant” on the family’s security issues.

Kate Gosselin has recently been travelling with another bodyguard, including during her business trip to California last week. Speculation is rampant that Kate is now pursuing several options to further her career as a TV personality and author.

New episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8 are scheduled to return August 3. Hopefully we'll see Kate and her backwards mullet in action on the dating scene.
