I wasn’t sure we had enough news (using the term loosely) to justify a Gosselin Chatter update. I was thinking of just doing an Open Discussion. Then I thought of how sweet MaryNGG is whenever we publish an update, so I went digging and found a few morsels of gossip to hopefully keep our followers happy. When does Kate’s show start??? What about that lawsuit??? The Gosselin creek is running dry. Maybe that’s not a bad thing? I’ll have to ponder that. For now, here are those morsels I promised you.
Lauren Glassman, Hailey’s mom and the woman responsible for introducing Jon and Hailey, opened a Twitter account recently and it didn’t take long to see that the previous offer for Jon to spend Thanksgiving with the Glassman family will not be extended in 2010. A sampling:
–Gaining weight back and reading book titled, From Panic To Power” helping me figure out WTF happened.
–Never thought it would happen to me. “intruder” moved in and had so much anxiety from his shananigans lost 20 pounds from stress and lies.
—k8major Looking forward to it. 2010 the year us women unite!
–If I wrote a book about what happened you would not believe it nor would you be able to put it down.
–Today i sang in the car for the first time in months. I am coming out of this “intruder” induced depression.
–For the first time in many months i went to lunch with a friend. It will be a long time before i allow anyone into my home with my family.
I haven’t met the lovely Mrs. Glassman, but she seems like a nice enough person. It appears she genuinely wanted to help Kate when she asked her husband to perform the free tummy tuck. There’s no way she could have predicted what would come.
It should be noted that not all her tweets are subtle digs at Jon. I just didn’t think you guys would be interested in her tennis playing. She may come off a bit dramatic, but the story she tells is echoed by quite a few women. I don’t claim to know the whole story, but it certainly appears Jon treated Hailey poorly. Hailey probably made mistakes too. In any case, as a mom, I totally understand Lauren Glassman rising to her daughter’s defense.
Apparently, Jon is still in Park City hanging with girlfriend of the month, Morgan, and hitting the slopes (and gifting suites.) On a positive note, he did participate in the Blanket America campaign along with other celebrities (strangely, his name is missing from the celebrity page even though a few castmates from “The Real World” are listed. Burn!) As is typical with Jon, there are conflicting stories about what went down.. Apparently, some of the celebrities were asked to film a PSA (a public service announcement video). Jon declined citing contract obligations with TLC. Not so fast says TLC, they countered that Jon is welcome to do this type of media — he just needs to notify the network of his plans.
Who thinks Jon and TLC just need to hug it out?
If you are interested in reading about the first meeting of the ‘I Hate Jon Gosselin’ club, please be my guest and click on the link above. Apparently, Hailey Glassman, Kate Major and Michael Lohan (surprisingly out of jail very quickly after being arrested AGAIN), got together with a couple of the kids from that Jersey Shore show. In the interest of giving Michael Lohan no publicity, I am going to break into this post and share some more positive news:
Born at just 25 weeks, Josie Duggar is holding her own. While the People article posted online doesn’t address this, other reports have indicated the Duggars are hoping Josie might be home in the next month or so. Let’s hope she continues to make steady progress and is home with her family soon without lasting complications.
