Hailey Glassman, former girlfriend of Jon Gosselin, will be starring on the new season CMT’s reality dating show Sweet Home Alabama. Yes, really.
Glassman, will be one of 22 female suitors vying for the heart of Tribble Reese, the runner up from the show’s first season. What a resume she has!
“I was never a homewrecker; everything that the media has portrayed me as is false, from the littlest to the biggest things," she tells the NY Post.
"I’ve been constantly judged in rag mags and tabloids. I’m a very kind, sweet, nice girl," says the former Jon Gosselin plaything (below, right).

The girls will be split into two groups, “city” and “country” (there is no "home wrecker" set) and were both aware of Glassman’s reputation coming into this.
“Going into this house I figured the city girls would know. Never did I think these girls from the deep south would know who I was," says the 24-year-old.
"I had no idea I would be verbally attacked at first."
Hailey Glassman came into the house wanting to clear her name, but the whole concept of the show - and Reese - led her down an entirely different road.“Ever since [the Gosselin incident] happened I have been tortured, and my name has been scarred from that. I came into the house wanting to clear the air."
"I figured it would be a great experience ... but if you think it’s hard to win over one guy’s heart, let me tell you, it’s a whole lot harder to win over 22 girls!”
Ultimately, Glassman says that she only shed her image within the house, but she also taught the others in there what she considers a valuable lesson.
“There was so much more going on in the house. There’s a lot that goes on in this show that people will learn. The girls learned so much, they learned not to judge someone by what you read about them,” Glassman says.
As for the viewers, Glassman seems excited they would get to see “the real Hailey,” not the one everyone remembers as Jon's 2009 booty call.
“This is who I am. In my head, two years ago the Kardashians weren’t married or had any kids, now you get to see the new Hailey Glassman, not the tabloid Hailey Glassman,” she says, aiming awfully high, even for a delusional d-lister.
