In her first ever TV interview, Jon’s girlfriend Hailey Glassman revealed some of the juicy behind-the-scenes details about TLC’s control over Jon and Kate’s marriage.
According to Hailey, she just a “a normal 22-year-old girl” who’s caught in the middle of a tabloid feeding frenzy, and she’s not, in her own words, “some fame whore.”
“I was never a follower. I was never a gossiper. I did my own thing. To be honest, this whole thing, I have lost my happiness through this all. I don’t want to say the public and media stripped me of my self-esteem. But they really have. I’ve been the sacrificial lamb in this situation.”
OK, maybe she’s being a little melodramatic, but he spiel does evoke just the tiniest bit of sympathy from me. I mean, she’s 22 and the only crime she’s guilty of is falling for the wrong, rich, douchey, older guy wearing Ed Hardy shirts.
As I reported yesterday, Jon and TLC are reportedly butting heads, but according to Hailey the tension has been building for many months:
“More like the lying channel… TLC didn’t allow [Jon and Kate Gosselin] to come out and say their marriage was done a year ago,” she said. But “no network owns what I can and cannot say.”
Hmm. What do you think? Is Hailey’s interview changing your perspective on Jon Gosselin?
