Is Jon Gosselin's rebound romance with his "soul mate" hitting the skids?

Hailey Glassman says the father of eight, who she began dating earlier this year, is emotionally abusive – and she's sick and tired of putting up with it!

"He'll call me and take his anger out on me," the 22-year-old Glassman says in a two-part interview scheduled to air on The Insider starting Thursday.

"He has 'mantrums.' I shouldn't have to put up with Jon being emotionally abusive. All I can do is cry and say, 'Jon, why are you so mean to me?'"

She of all people should know better than to expect a straight answer.

"Sometimes he has trouble with the truth," Hailey Glassman says of Jon. "He will just dance and dance around his lies. He's like Jekyll and Hyde."

Yet, for whatever reason, she proclaims, "I still love him."

Jon Gosselin, Hailey Glassman

Ever since she started dating Jon Gosselin, the already-troubled Hailey Glassman laments that her life has changed rapidly – and not necessarily for the better.

"I met Jon in a bubble," says Glassman, whose dad performed a post-sextuplet tummy tuck on Kate in 2006. "I'd never seen the show. I had no idea."

After their trip to France in July, she's faced harsh criticism.

"People judge me before they meet me. I get threats. I get called a home wrecker and a fat whore. People will stare or point. It gets worse every day."

NOTE: For the record, np one has ever said she's fat.

Just the same, Hailey can't imagine life without Jon.

"I don't want to leave him alone," she says. "At the end of the day, I love him but dislike him at times. When I love someone I would never hurt them."

A source close to Jon tells People that he was "very supportive of her doing the interview with The Insider. He wants her to get paid clear her name."

As for Jon's rage issues and emotional instability, the source says, "He has a lot of on his plate and he gets frustrated but he's supportive of her."

She may not have been plastered like Holly Montag on last night's The Hills, but a .08 is a .08, period, so Stephanie Pratt was formally charged with DUI today.

After her arrest two Sundays ago in Hollywood, the sister of Spencer Pratt was given a breathalyzer and blew exactly the amount considered over the limit.

Reinstated

She was pulled over at 3:45 a.m. October 18 after leaving Holly Montag's birthday party. Man, one can only imagine what Holly would have blown: .15? .24?

Stephanie Pratt was actually given two breathalyzer tests, registering .08 and .09, so she was arrested for DUI and then taken into custody on $5,000 bail.

Stephanie Pratt with Holly Montag and that Stacie girl the night of her arrest. It was Holly's birthday. Where's Heidi, you ask? Apparently no one was willing to pay her.

She could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

In an attempt to save some plastic surgery-riddled face, Stephanie took to her Twitter earlier this week to address the situation. Here's what she said:

  • i was pulled over 4 tinted windows 3 blocks from where i was sleeping and blew a .08 which was 2 drinks. i made the wrong choice and i take responsibility.
  • i would never put other peoples lives at risk and want to be clear that i was not pulled over for unsafe driving. 2 drinks... call a taxi! learn from my mistake.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sure has a way with words.

Whether he's calling political opponents "girlie men" or nonchalantly musing on life while puffing on a stogie in the jacuzzi during the state's current fiscal catastrophe, Governator Ahhnold certainly has no shortage of critics in politics.

Ones he may have just given a cryptic slap in the legislative face.

His rep calls it a coincidence, but a recent letter Schwarzenegger sent Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano announcing his rejection of Assembly Bill 1176 may contain a not-so-well-hidden, obscene message.

Some believe this was the Guv's classy reaction to this particular lawmaker heckling him, Joe Wilson style, at a recent event in San Francisco.

Just read down the left-hand margin for the message ...

Ahnold

Coincidence? Careful word choice and alignment? You be the judge!

Alex Rodriguez is batting .438 with six home runs and 12 RBIs so far this postseason. Amazingly, he may be performing even better off the baseball field!

That's what girlfriend Kate Hudson has been telling pals.

"They love sex!" a friend of the couple dished recently. "They talk about it all day long. Kate gets graphic talking about his body, even to her parents."

Seriously? Is this for real? She probably talks about "PEDs" and the aging Goldie Hawn mishears it for something. Eh, eh? Hello? Is this thing on? No?

K-Hud apparently hasn't been deterred by the fact that A-Rod just divorced Cynthia Rodriguez following an affair with Joslyn Noel Morse (and others).

Another fling recalls portraits of the New York Yankees slugger as a centaur hanging over his bed. We can't decide if that's creepy, funny or just weird.

Blonde Kate Hudson Picture

Ever since Kate Hudson became a Yankee Stadium staple, the team has dominated. Sure, their payroll is like a billion dollars, but a pretty good luck charm never hurt.

In any case, Rodriguez has supposedly confided to Kate that she means more to him than Madonna, who he famously had an "affair of the heart with" last year, or even Cynthia, and that Kate is "changing him for the better."

How so?

"He's less of a jerk," jokes a pal. "He's also more free-spirited." How special.

In any case, Kate's does not seem worried, nor does she have any reason to be. That's because "she's with him every second," according to a source.

Whatever leash he's on, Yankee fans hope she keeps riding his ass one more week. The World Series begins tonight in New York, weather permitting.

Jason Mesnick couldn't bear the thought of guys fighting over Molly Malaney on ABC's The Bachelorette. Fortunately, she gave up that dream for him. And love.

In a new interview with Us, Jason says that a week after his ill-fated proposal to Melissa Rycroft on The Bachelor, show producers started inquiring about Molly.

Malaney-Mesnick Wedding

"They kept asking me if I thought Molly would make a good Bachelorette," he said. "I realized I was not willing to let Molly go and have 25 guys fight over her."

Fortunately, Molly turned down that possibility, and Jason got it right the second time, receiving a second chance and ultimately a "yes" to marriage proposal.

Molly and Jason just got engaged in New Zealand.

With Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney now engaged, the controversial ending of The Bachelor last season now looks like it was for the best. As for Rycroft?

"Melissa is a great girl, but there wasn't any chemistry," Jason says of why he dumped her. "I broke up with her after Christmas, a month after we wrapped."

Don't feel too bad for Melissa, though. She made the finals of Dancing with the Stars and is now engaged herself, to Dallas insurance agent Tye Strickland!

Jason also adds that he and Melissa had already split in private, despite the appearance on the "After the Final Rose" special. But Molly Malaney wasn't aware.

Mesnick was contractually prohibited from contacting her until The Bachelor aired. "At that point, she would have started filming The Bachelorette!" he recalls.

ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL: Jason Mesnick's post-Bachelor switcheroo landed him in hot water with the viewing public, but everyone came out of it for the better.

Thus, it was the "After the Final Rose" taping that provided the less than ideal, but first available opportunity to rekindle things with Molly and win her back.

"Obviously, I didn't want it on TV, but I had to take the chance if it meant getting her back," Jason said. "I would rather have picked up the phone, trust me!"

Of Melissa Rycroft, Jason says she was also offered a chance to be the next Bachelorette star (Jillian Harris was ultimately chosen) and he wishes her the best.

His attention is now fully on the future with Molly and his five-year-old son Ty, however. We hope he can expect some little brothers and sisters before long.

The lovely Kari Ann Peniche and other upstanding Z-listers be taking part in the latest spinoff of Celebrity Rehab, Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, beginning November 1.

The stimulating new VH1 series will tackle the widely unexamined and wildly uninhibited world of sex addiction. The pleasure begins building at 10 p.m. Sunday.

Kari Ann Peniche in Playboy

Kari Ann is definitely the biggest name among the cast, thanks to her participation in this year's Eric Dane nude tape and her troubled past as a possible pimp.

The disgraced former Miss Teen USA also posed in Playboy, was engaged to Aaron Carter for like a week, and started her own clothing line, Strung Out Girl.

How apropos.

Hi, my name is Kari Ann Peniche and I am a sex addict. I enjoy pina coladas, long walks on the beach and getting naked with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart.

The cast of the new series includes a number of people you possibly have heard of (if you follow the oft-colliding worlds of porn and celebrity sex tapes).

It also features some people you probably do not know. In addition to Kari Ann Peniche, here's a look at some of the upstanding characters joining her:

  • Jennifer Ketchum (porn "actress")
  • Jamie Lovett (surfer, wakeboarder)
  • Nicole Narain (model, sex tape star)
  • Kendra Jade (former porn star)
  • Duncan Roy (music producer)
  • Amber Smith (alleged model)
  • Phil Varone (musician)

Apparently Shauna Sand wasn't available.

This week on The Hills, Justin-Bobby continued to play mind games with Kristin, Holly got plastered again and Jayde Nicole went absolutely insane on Brody.

As always, The Hollywood Gossip editorial board looks back at back the previous night's The Hills (as we do for The City) awarding and taking away points  ...

Pratts Play with Guns

This week's episode title comes from a text Justin sent Kristin after ditching her beach party, referring to her three strike rule. Yes, he wrote that. Minus 7.

Later, he surprises "boo" by showing up anyway. Plus 6, because like the naked guy on How I Met Your Mother, J-B's unpredictability totally works on girls.

Kristin Cavallari sure overdoes the fake Valley Girl accent, over-pronouncing each syllable trying to sound ditzy. Liiiiiike, yaaaaaa, Bro-dayyyyyy. Minus 5.

HOT preview for New Moon during commercials! Plus 3.

Holly Montag says her true love is Jack. As in Daniel. Minus 4 for this dreadful cliche and being one of the sloppier drunks out there. We hope she's acting.

Despite being wrapped around Justin's finger, Kristin admits she has feelings for Bro-dayyyyyy. Ahh, there's nothing like a freshly contrived love triangle. Plus 2.

Speaking of Brody's love life, either MTV's editors want to sabotage Jayde Nicole, or she is rapidly becoming mentally unbalanced. Jealous much. Jayde? Minus 6.

Random dude off-camera: "What is up with Holly?" Great question. Plus 9.

Team Enzo! Plus 7, because even Spencer Pratt is warming to his adorable little neighbor. He tries, but can't even pretend to hate him anymore. It's kind of cute.

For the love of G*d, what the hell is Holly wearing at Speidi's!? Minus 4. Is The Hills secretly a cult where you have to drop 25 pounds and get plastic surgery?

Concerned Heidi Montag tells her troubled, drunk sis that she would, like, do anything for her (going to her b-party without a fee notwithstanding). Plus 6. B!tch.

Obligatory Minus 5 for Kristin not being Lauren Conrad. Are we really supposed to care about this girl and become invested in all her personal drama? Fail.

For the Love of Ray J preview during commercials! Plus 3.

TOTAL: +5! SEASON TOTAL: +43! We're still having a hard time caring about Kristin in any way, but at least Holly, Jayde and Justin are total loose cannons.

Last night's Hollywood premiere of This Is It, the much-touted documentary of Michael Jackson's final rehearsals, attracted celebrities from A-to-D-list.

Ian Ziering was also able to make it.

Who knew he was still alive? Considering he was like 35 when he starred on the first 90210, he must be like 50 now. And looks great! Note: Ian is 45.

Also on hand was Larry Birkhead. We can't remember the last time we saw him outside of a courtroom or OK! photo shoot he most likely got paid for!

Which of these two studs looked better at the premiere last night? Just vote in our survey below and decide who wins our latest style showdown ...

Our latest fashion face-off featuring stars at the premiere of Michael Jackson's This Is It documentary last night holds an interesting connection to the King of Pop.

Or at least his last director. Kenny Ortega directed This Is It, and is also known for heading the High School Musical franchise, which starred Ashley Tisdale (right).

He's also heading up the remake of Footloose, starring Julianne Hough (left) and Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford. Anyway, which cutie looked better last night?

Julianne, the two-time Dancing with the Stars champion, went with more of a (chic) rocker look, while Ashley honored the late King of Pop with a vintage T.

Who will win this battle of the blondes? Vote below!

  • Just Julianne
  • Awesome Ash
