An Update on Jon and Kate

I was really hoping that with the slow demise of their show, and many of their fans turning on them, that we would stop hearing about Jon and Kate Gosselin. But I guess with their show coming back from hiatus in just a few weeks, the two must be seen out and about and people must talk about every move they’re making.

Jon is certainly making big moves. They’re the same kind of moves he made when he was married, such as hooking up with any young thing that he can find only this time he’s not breaking any vows while doing so. Unfortunately for him, it seems as though he might be repeating history and making the same mistake twice. It was only a few days ago that Jon was seen out with Hailey Glassman, the daughter of the doctor who did some plastic surgery for Kate after she gave birth to their children. Even though they’ve just recently gone public, there are already stories floating around that Hailey is just with Jon for the fame. Hmm…does that sound familiar to anyone? From US,

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

Multiple sources confirm to the new issue of Us Weekly — on newsstands tomorrow — that 22-year-old Hailey Glassman is dating the newly-separated dad of eight, 32, “to get famous.”

Glassman — whose father performed Kate’s 2006 tummy tuck — has tried out for MTV’s Real World and Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club.

“I think after realizing she had a connection to Jon through her father and that Jon and Kate’s marriage was rocky, she saw an opportunity to get famous,” one of Glassman’s pals tells Us.

James Appleton, who describes himself as her “hookup friend,” tells Us Glassman dropped him abruptly just before news of the pair 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, who met her during a 2007 spring break trip to Acapulco, Mexico.

Before leaving for St. Tropez, Glassman (who was arrested in 2005 for marijuana possession) changed her Facebook status to “In a relationship.”

Even though he’s a little young for it, I’m pretty sure that Jon is having a mid-life crisis. Maybe those kids aged him more than we thought. But all of this running around with younger women and wearing t-shirts that should not make their way out of high school screams ‘I’m a pathetic old man!’ I’m not a big fan of Jon Gosselin’s and I think that if his newest fling is just trying to use his name to get famous, more power to her. If he’s stupid enough to buy it, after just dealing with a wife who only wanted the money without putting in any of the marital work, he has it coming in my eyes.

Kate Gosselin, on the other hand, seems to be having a tougher time with moving on. Not only is she not out screwing everything that she sees but she’s also still wearing her wedding ring. This actually speaks volumes to me. Is she hoping for a reconciliation? Or is she just in complete denial? I think the act of taking that ring off for one last time, and knowing that you will probably never put it back on, is probably a very hard thing to do. It makes me want to give her just a tiny bit of credit in that she might not be so happy about ending her 10-year marriage. And I actually don’t think that she’s doing it just for show. Also from US,

“As ex Jon Gosselin celebrates his single status in France with 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman, Kate Gosselin is sticking to her everyday routine in Wernersville, Pa.

On Tuesday, she left their eight kids at their $1.1 million home to run errands.

Wearing a floppy hat and sunglasses, Kate stopped by a UPS Store (she was spotted toting the children’s magazine Highlights) and later picked up gas. Tellingly, she also was wearing her wedding ring (Kate has said she was “not fond of” the idea of separating).

Kate has been looking after their eight kids ever since Jon took his trip to France with Hailey Glassman last week. Over the weekend – while Jon and Hailey smoked cigarettes and chilled on Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier’s yacht – Kate went grocery shopping and had a picnic with the kids.”

Lately I haven’t been a fan of Jon or Kate. But I must say that post-separation, I’m really starting to root for Kate. She may be a mom that got caught up in the glamour and financial benefits of having a television show but I think she’s also proven that she cares about her family, even if they can’t be together right now. At least she’s not flaunting her new single status and out smoking cigars and drinking wine while someone else raises her kids. That’s a lot more than scumbag Jon can say.
