Forget about tear-filled TV interviews and dramatic walking-off-the-set moments. The most explosive and revealing interviews about Jon Gosselin's life are all about to happen - under oath! Not only will Jon's girlfriend Hailey Glassman be deposed by TLC's law firm Williams & Connolly, but so will Jon's bodyguard and four other witnesses.
The Washington, D.C. law firm with a reputation for fierce and effective tactics has been extremely busy since filing suit in a Maryland court on October 16 for breach of contract against Jon. The firm has filed motion after motion in the Montgomery County Circuit Court. On November 4 the court granted a slew of motions filed by the law firm, allowing them to depose Hailey Glassman, Jon's bodyguard Thomas Meinelt, Michael Heller, Mark Heller, Michael Lohan and Matthew Kirschner. The fact that Williams & Connolly has been granted the right to depose the Hellers should mean that they will not be allowed to represent Jon in the case, as they are now witnesses.
TLC alleges that Jon breached his exclusive contract with them and Williams & Connolly has gotten off to a fast start on a fact-finding mission to determine Jon's other sources of incomes. The Hellers will certainly be asked about every non-TLC payday Jon has received and Hailey will also be forced to reveal what she knows under oath. Michael Lohan has stated publicly that he and Jon were lining up a new reality TV show about divorced dads. Most interesting perhaps, is Meinelt, who went from paparazzi to Jon's bodyguard. His knowledge of Jon's financial and personal affairs should be extensive and he is certain to face intense questioning during deposition.
UPDATE: Jon is required to appear December 14 in a Maryland courtroom when a judge will hear TLC's motion for a preliminary injunction. And yes, it is likely that he will be questioned under oath about his outside income, statements about TLC and more.
Jon Gosselin to Spend Thanksgiving With Hailey, Not the Kids: UsWeekly.com
Jon Gosselin won't be spending Thanksgiving with his eight kids. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, his "semi-single" girlfriend Hailey Glassman says that Kate Gosselin will be with the kids on the big day (along with bodyguard Steve Neild).
So - even though she and Jon, 32, are slowing down their relationship - Hailey, 22, has invited him to have Thanksgiving with her family. "My family and I would never let him eat Thanksgiving dinner alone in an apartment," says Hailey. "He's coming to our house for Thanksgiving. I don't care."
Jon, 32, says that was the plan all along. "I still planned on going to her house on Thanksgiving; that was on my schedule," he says. But Hailey isn't thrilled with his answer.
"On your schedule? What do you mean, 'On my schedule?'" she asks. "Let's see, Kate has the kids, and she's having a nice huge meal with Steve and his family. Uh, let's see, should I go to Hailey's or should I sit in my apartment all alone?" "Sorry, I used the wrong term," says Jon. "I plan on going -- I made a promise to her family I would go to her house." "Made a promise? You're not doing my family any favors!" replies Hailey. "We know what the right thing to do is. We know what we both need," she continues. "He needs to do his thing and I need to do my thing. We both know this."
Kate Gets "Witchy" For Halloween: People.com
It's no surprise that tons of trick-or-treaters donned blond helmet wigs and Ed Hardy T-shirts to become reality TV's unavoidable couple, Kate and Jon Gosselin, this past Halloween. The surprising news is that the real Kate Gosselin managed to head out with her kids – without a single photographer in sight. "This year, she was able to go trick-or-treating without paparazzi, just like a normal mom," a friend of Kate's tells PEOPLE.
Two days before Kate expressed deep pain and remorse about her life in a revealing TLC interview, the reality star dressed up as a glamorous witch and joined her sextuplets when they hit the streets in their quiet Pennsylvania neighborhood. "Alexis was an adorable witch, Hannah a Spanish princess, Aaden a pirate, Collin was a Spider-Man, Leah was a kitty and Joel was Batman," says the friend. Meanwhile, 8-year-old twins Cara, a ghost, and Mady, the devil, went out with their friends instead of their sibs. The family's show – Jon & Kate Plus Eight – stopped filming earlier this month after Jon Gosselin sued TLC to stop production.
