Jon Gosselin works quickly. In some situations that is a good thing, others, not so much. The reality TV dad, who will soon be divorced from wife Kate, has moved on to 22-year-old Hailey Glassman. Although they are not engaged as previously reported, he admits they enjoy spending time together. Is Hailey his “new Kate?”

Remember, not so long ago, Jon and Kate made an announcement about not commenting to the media to protect the privacy of their situation and for the sake of their children?
They said, “During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation.”
Said Jon, “Hailey and I have been family friends for several years and only very recently began dating. What began as friendship has grown into something more.” So, he’s known her since she was a teen? Younger? Sure, she’s 22 now, certainly of age, but still… it always creeps me out when guys start dating young women they have known since the girl was a kid (the ”family friend”) and they are much older.
Jon added, “I genuinely enjoy spending time with her. It’s nice to be with someone who I can confide in and trust and who accepts me for who I am.” A douchebag.
Jon wants it to be clear that his decision to go public with his relationship with Hailey is because he’s just a “regular guy” going through stuff. Where is my violin?
Gosselin said, “I know that my decision to appear publicly with Hailey this weekend will be scrutinized, but I hope that people can see I’m a inconsiderate jerk regular guy who is going through a very difficult time in [my] life and wants to move forward.” Glad it’s all about him.
Jon also wants everyone to know he thought of his eight kids every 10 minutes while he was away in France with Hailey. Of course he did.
Is it just me, or is there a slight resemblance between a young Kate and Hailey?
Watch video below of Jon arriving back in the US (sans Hailey)… no doubt to go see his children. Jon will begin filming for upcoming episodes of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Will anyone be able to stomach their show anymore? I was never a fan to begin with, but I certainly can’t watch now, all I see are eight children whose world will never be the same.
