She's Fallen & She Can't Get Up! Is Jon's new Mercedes To Blame? (lol) Radar.com
You know the news week is slow when the rumor of the day is Jon's grandma falling after she saw the money he wasted on a new Mercedes!
"Jon Gosselin has officially joined the ranks of the rich - he already had the famous part down. The Jon & Kate star bought himself a Mercedes Benz which was delivered to his home Saturday. Jon chose the Mercedes ML350 SUV. At a base MSRP of $45,700, it comes with 24 valves and 268 HP. It seats five so we're guessing he'll have to leave a few kids behind when he gets behind the wheel. It was shortly after the car was brought to Jon's Wernersville, PA home by a saleswoman that Gosselin's grandmother

And - surprise! - he's not spending most the cash on his eight kids. "He uses his Jon & Kate Plus 8 connections to get free stuff for the children, and then he pays for big ticket items for [girlfriend] Hailey [Glassman]," the source continues. "While he was in Vegas this weekend flirting with many other women, he bought Hailey expensive jewelry. Then he got tons of free candy for the kids."
Better make room on your shelf for that Father of the Year award, Jon!
Compounding Big Papa Gos' financial woes is the fact that he moved to pricey New York City after splitting with wife Kate, and his desire to keep 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey in a lush lifestyle. "Jon is spending a lot of money to live in New York City and be close to Hailey," the source adds. "She spends most nights with him and they usually order food or go out to nice restaurants on the Upper West Side. They take cabs everywhere and he takes her shopping and to visit her family. Jon houses his car in a garage in the city as well for easy access for the shopping trips and drives home to Pennsylvania. The money is going fast!"
About the only source of extra revenue for Jon these days is making personal appearances, but with Jon & Kate network TLC putting the brakes on that, he could experience real money woes in the very near future.
Kate Gosselin Will Not Respond To Jon's "Claims" Radar.com
It looked like war when Jon Gosselin appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday and fired some pretty hard shots at wife Kate, saying he had taken a lot of abuse from her.
And the reason Jon got tough, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively, is because he wants to rehabilitate his image with the public. “Jon thinks he’s being portrayed as the bad guy and wants to put his side of the story out there,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
Well, attacking Kate may not have been the way to do it. Don’t expect Kate to respond immediately. She’s aware of Jon’s comments and won’t answer his charges, the source told RadarOnline.com.
Kate has done several national interviews about the breakup of the marriage and as Jon has stepped out with a series of young girlfriends, public sympathy has shifted toward Kate. When Jon tried to do an interview with a cable network, TLC jumped into action and squashed it, citing contractual violations. Now Jon hopes to get his side of the story out and the GMA interview is his first attempt. But people close to the couple don’t think it worked. “He looked whiney,” said one source.
