Chalk up another reason for Jon Gosselin to be on suicide watch.

He has few friends and no job, is on the hook for five-figure monthly child support payments, and now his ex says he owes her a small fortune in rent money.

Somebody better take away Jonny Boy's belt and shoelaces ASAP.

Hailey Glassman, Jon's post-Kate rebound piece, says the douchebag pocketed thousands in rent money she paid him. As in he never actually paid the rent.

She and Jon lived in a West Side apartment building in New York City, which she moved out of Wednesday (even though she says they broke up weeks ago).

Why'd she move out? Maybe because someone didn't pay rent.

On Christmas, Hails set the record straight on Twitter:

Jon is Smokin'

Hailey Glassman calls Jon Gosselin a liar and thief.

"FYI That apartment everyone calls 'Jon's Apartment' was MY apartment as well," Hailey Twittered. "We split rent! He's been living off my family and I."

"So ... get your facts right before you all assume. My family and I found out a week ago he's been pocketing our rent money 'n not paying the rent!"

Hailey Glassman, who also bashed Jon for his relationship with Kate Major, adds fuel to growing speculation over Jon's financial woes with these Tweets.

Jon and Kate Gosselin's divorce just became final, leaving him responsible for hefty child support payments. The biggest problem with that obligation?

Thanks to TLC's pending lawsuit against him, Jon can no longer earn money with public appearances or interviews that violate his non-compete clause.

So cross out those nightly visits to The Insider. On the plus side, he can probably still get a job in IT like the old days ... well, except for the recession.

Spencer Pratt may have a hot new single and a ridiculous house in Hollywood thanks to his success on The Hills, but the Jersey Shore cast is not impressed.

Asked about The Hills cast, Jersey's Ronnie Magro said of his fellow MTV reality stars: "I’m not crazy about them. We’re doing better than them right now."

"They’re really not that big of a deal," Ronnie adds, noting that the only thing the West Coasters can do better than the Shore guidos is "outspend" them.

The guidettes would welcome a throwdown as well.

"It would be awesome to do The Hills versus Jersey Shore, like Real World/Road Rules Challenge. We would torture them," Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley said.

"We’d ruin them,” she said. “I’d take on all six girls!"

Cast of Jersey Shore

The cast of Jersey Shore thinks it's already out of The Hills' league.

According to Mike Sorrentino, a.k.a. "The Situation," he and his fellow cast members already had a Hills run-in, and it was clear who was looking up at who.

“Somebody called our publicist in L.A. and said, 'The girls from The Hills want to sit next to you in a club,'" The Situation said. “As soon as we walked in, I saw some girl running at me. That happens a lot to us, so we didn’t know who."

"She almost tackled me. I went, ‘Oh, she’s kinda cute.’ Then I saw it was Kristin Cavallari. I like to think that I’ve always had it like this, but not to this extent!”

We can only hope for a crossover episode featuring Justin-Bobby and Kristin's fake relationship intertwined with ridiculous Jersey Shore quotes. Give it time.

Perhaps the biggest sign they’ve made it? Snooki and The Situation were parodied on Saturday Night Live. “I thought it was hilarious,” Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, said of Bobby Moynihan’s SNL Snooki parody of her. "He said what I would say."

Which MTV show's cast do you like better?

A private funeral was held on Christmas Eve for the late Brittany Murphy, who died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 32 less than a week ago.

A small group of close friends and family members gathered at the Church of the Hills at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in L.A. to pay their respects.

At the service, Simon Monjack called his wife his "soul mate."

He also said of Brittany: "Mystery is the nature of love and you never know when or where it will strike or how quickly it will be taken from you."

Murphy was interred at twilight; "Amazing Grace" was sung at graveside; The service concluded with a reading of The Little Prince, her favorite book.

Her estranged father, Angelo Bertolotti, did not attend the funeral. "If I wanted to go, I would go, but I don't want to see her that way," he told E! News Friday.

"She was flawless to me. She was a little bright child. I have only good memories. She's a memory to me now. To me she's off making a movie somewhere."

A larger memorial service for Murphy may be held early next year.

Murphy died at 10:04 a.m. December 20 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after she was found unresponsive in her bathroom by her mother.

Many have speculated that Brittany Murphy took an unhealthy amount of medication, but her husband denies the star had an overdose or eating disorder.

With 2009 drawing to a close, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on this wild year, naming finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

It's time for us to pay tribute to the special celebrities who made this year the most memorable for THG and for celebrity gossip fans across the nation and world.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and, in the case of today's finalist, probably the messiest reality TV divorce of all-time.

Recently, our kountdown kontinued with all those krazy, kurvy Kardashians in the #4 spot. Now, it's on to Celebrity of the Year Finalist #3: Jon Gosselin!

Jon Gosselin is #1

Jon thinks he should be higher, but he'll have to settle for #3.

It's hard to believe that it was only six months ago that Jon Gosselin was known as your run-of-the-mill reality show father of eight who loved ATVs, Ed Hardy t-shirts, Bluetooths, etc. His wife was painful but they made it work.

Until they didn't.

Jon was caught cheating with teacher pal Deanna Hummel, setting in motion an epic train wreck as his marriage and reality show simultaneously unraveled.

Free from the grating banshee that is Kate, Jon proceeded to get with Hailey Glassman ... and Kate Major, and Stephanie Santoro. Often at the same time.

He befriended Michael Lohan, hosted pool parties in Vegas, tried to start his own clothing line and earned a place in the upper echelon of global douchebags.

When his wild partying and nightly interviews on The Insider caused TLC to cut him out and rename their show Kate Plus 8, he proceeded to pull the plug on the show, citing child exploitation. They countersued for breach of contract.

What he'll try to pull next is anyone's guess, but a run like he had is worthy of top three status in 2009. Here's a little photo tribute to the infamous Jon ...

  • Feelin' Like a P-I-M-P
  • Hailey Glassman Photo
  • Jon Gosselin Ridin'
  • STFU Jon!
  • Jonny Boy
  • Class Act
  • Bad Dad
  • Grade A Douchebag
  • Jon Gosselin Shirtless
  • He Likes 'Em This Big

Most of us get into the Christmas spirit with egg nog, festive decorations around our homes, red and green sweaters and maybe the occasional Santa hat.

Lady Gaga, on the other hand ...

There's little else we really have to add to this photo. It's probably no surprise to her fans, who are well accustomed to the unique star's "fashion" sense.

After all, this is an artist who can and will pull off just about anything. Even those Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors seemed to increase her popularity.

So rather than paying tribute to the holiday season with Santa-themed attire, she opted for a reindeer look. We have to say, we kinda dig the antlers ...

A Very Gaga Christmas

Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole just split. But it's a bro he misses most.

According to reports, Brody is more upset about his "breakup" with former best friend Doug Reinhardt than his Playmate of the Year girlfriend of nearly 15 months.

Hills Gang

Last night, Brody was at Guys & Dolls in W. Hollywood with a new girl on his arm, but looked sad when he didn’t interact with his former pal, who was also there.

“Brody arrived at 11:15 with two guy friends,” a witness at Guys & Dolls said. “He was joined less than 30 minutes later by a blonde, very attractive woman.”

“She was with him most of the night. It was clear this wasn’t their first meeting,” the source said, but Brody, who endured a similar falling out with former BFF Spencer Pratt, had (platonic) eyes for someone else entirely: Doug Reinhardt.

Brody Jenner with Doug Reinhardt back in the good ol' days.

Doug, along with his notorious girlfriend Paris Hilton, had their own table and were joined by about 10 friends - none of whom was The Hills star - witnesses say.

“Doug did not speak to Brody, and you could see Brody was distracted by Doug being there," reports a spy. "He seemed very sad that they weren’t speaking.”

“Everyone stayed until close ... Brody left hand-in-hand with the blond.”

Well, that's good at least.

Brody Jenner recently said he hasn’t seen much of his baseball bud since Doug reconciled with the ho-tel heiress/socialite and insists their friendship is over.

“We used to be best friends, now I never see him. Some people just get so involved in relationships they lose their friends," he lamented. "Partners come and go, but friends are there for you always. I’m done. Paris has taken him away.”

In an ironic and tragic example of life imitating art, the late Brittany Murphy's character in the horror film Deadline appears lying lifeless in her bathtub.

The actress' sudden death on Sunday, when she was found in the bathroom and could not be revived, sent the DVD rental company Redbox scrambling.

For obvious reasons, efforts to remove this particularly disturbing image from the DVD cover and other promotional materials are underway nationwide ...

Brittany Murphy stars in the horror film Deadline.

Murphy collapsed in the bathroom Sunday morning and, after unsuccessful attempts by family and paramedics to revive her, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Suddenly, the DVD cover seemed a lot less appropriate.

"We are removing the box art images from our displays," Redbox spokeswoman Laura Dihel said. "We will continue to carry her film, but not featuring the box art."

A much funnier and less morbid example of promotional material pulled in light of current events? Tiger Woods Accenture ads. You wanna talk about irony ...
