We reported Friday that 22-year-old party girl Hailey Glassman is dating Jon Gosselin, father of eight half-white babies and the estranged wife of Kate Gosselin.

While we were fairly confident this report was true, given our sources, we had not yet seen photo evidence of the sexy new couple to establish it 100 percent.

This should clear up any doubts that Jon and Hailey are an item ...

The pair was spotted in Saint Tropez, France, where they spent time on a boat owned by Christian Audigier - creator of Jon's unofficial douchebag fashion line, Ed Hardy - before heading to the Saint Tropez Polo Club to drink some champagne.

Guess Jon is making up for lost time now that he's free of the ball and chain known as Kate. Good thing she never cries, according to her Match.com profile.

Hailey Glassman is the daughter of the Nyack, N.Y., plastic surgeon who did Kate's tummy tuck operation following the birth of the sextuplets. The irony.

Deanna Hummel who? Apparently moving on from wife Kate and the mistress that wrecked his marriage, Jon Gosselin has been cozying up to Hailey Glassman, 22.

Radar Online quotes a source saying Jon and Hailey are "definitely in love."

Guess Jon's Match.com profile can be retired (in the dating Hall of Fame).

"They are planning a romantic trip to Paris in the next couple of weeks. And Hailey is going to start a shoe line. She is into fashion," the Radar source said.

Another friend of the young cutie says that Hailey Glassman has changed her status on Facebook to "in a relationship." Well, that's the clincher right there!

Glassman is the hard-partying spawn of plastic surgeon Lawrence Glassman, who performed Kate Gosselin's tummy-tuck surgery (seen on Jon & Kate Plus 8).

Hailey was busted by cops for possession of marijuana, hashish and hashish oil in 2005. A male friend called her "one of the most wild women I've ever met."

Here's a photo that will corroborate that assessment ...

On May 24, Jon Gosselin and Hailey Glassman were spotted at Bourbon Street bar in Nyack, N.Y., and were caught on surveillance video enjoying drinks.

As they left the watering hole, Jon was accosted by a photographer and fled through the back alley, cell phone in hand (and probably Bluetooth in ear).

But it's all good now. He and Kate Gosselin have officially separated, and he is now free to chase whatever tail he desires. Meanwhile, Kate made a whirlwind trip to Hollywood this week, presumably to pursue some sort of ... we have no idea.

Seriously, who wants to pay Kate Gosselin to do anything these days?

Nevertheless, she flew into L.A. Monday and checked herself at the posh Bel-Air hotel. She spent most of her time lounging by the pool and was spotted having lunch with a pair of women on Wednesday, then driving to Burbank for meetings.

The mulleted one flew back home to Wernersville, Pa. late Wednesday.

They may have filed for divorce, but Jon and Kate Gosselin have made good on their pledge to focus on their children, reuniting for a Fourth of July picnic.

At their home in Wernersville, Pa., the family played volleyball and picked blueberries for a cake Kate was baking, while Jon was seen lighting sparklers.

Fortunately, Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel were all seemingly able to escape injury ... and a Kate Gosselin spanking.

The event had been planned, as the stars of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 agreed a few weeks ago to fulfill their contractual obligations and act like they can tolerate each other set aside their differences for the national holiday.

How wonderful - and not shocking - to see them reunite. Since Kate's book and clothing line have recently been sacked, the show's all she's got left.

How sweet. All 10 Gosselins are back together ... if only because it's a national holiday, and TLC told them to be for the sake of their reality show. [Photo: Splash News]

"Jon pointed to the July 4 holiday and said, 'What are we going to do about that?'" Kate Gosselin recently told People. "I absolutely cannot imagine not spending every single holiday with my kids. I don't care what it takes. I will be there."

Apparently, so will Jon. Even if he is spending the rest of his time hunting for NYC apartments, giving it to Deanna Hummel and posting a profile on Match.com.

Attention, ladies. Jon Gosselin is single and ready to mingle.

Fresh off his divorce announcement, the estranged Mr. Kate Gosselin has already put up a new profile on Match.com! Get him while he's hot!

Okay, it's not actually his real profile. But it is really funny.

In his Match.com ad, a faux Jon Gosselin says his interests include Ed Hardy t-shirts, tractors, Bluetooths and "always sitting on this end of the couch."

Username JonMinus9 hopes prospective mates can accept that he "already has eight half-white babies." They, that hasn't turned off Deanna Hummel ...

Jon & Kate Plus Alimony. Jon & Kate Plus Deanna Hummel. Jon Minus 9. Jon Plus 8 Minus K8. Jon & Kate Separ8. Jon & Kate Plus Court D8 ...

Whatever you want to call the next phase of the popular TLC reality show in the wake of Jon and Kate Gosselin packing it in after 10 years of marriage, it's the remaining, adorable eight whom some experts worry about most.

"I'm sad to think their custody might be part of what we're observing on day-to-day basis," says Mary Cushing Doherty, a family law attorney in Norristown, Pa.

The question for a Pennsylvania court could be whether it's in the best interest of the children to have their lives broadcast as children of divorce - is that just too much emotional baggage for any minor to carry period, let alone on TV?

This means a court could order that the kids no longer can be on on TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, which returns from its hiatus with new episodes August 3.

The network suspended filming on its top-rated program Tuesday to gloss over the fact that Jon and Kate split up allow the Gosselin family to "regroup."

Even if Jon and Kate Gosselin reach a private custody agreement, there's still a chance "the law will reach in and say, 'I think these kids need a child advocate because people have not been looking out for their interests,'" Doherty says.

TLC has said it "continues to support the family and will work with them to determine the best way to tell their story as they navigate through a difficult time."

Another thorny issue could involve splitting the estate, which isn't just about who gets the $1.3 million house Kate and Jon Gosselin live in with their brood.

Any assets acquired between the marriage and separation are Jon and Kate's together, so it's not as if one party earned them. Also, the question remains as to the content of their contract with TLC. What if ratings dwindle and they are canceled?

Yet another interesting issue is who's more likely to be the celebrity moving forward. Is she more likely going to have a steady stream of income, or is he?

Atypically for divorce proceedings, Kate did not request child support or alimony. The interesting thing is going to be whether Jon asks for financial help.

Should Jon & Kate Plus 8 even come back?

After whining about tabloid coverage of their lives to tabloids, Kate and Jon Gosselin, whose unraveling marriage has dominated headlines lately, have released a joint statement to tabloids saying they no longer wish to speak to tabloids.

The phrase too little, too late comes to mind.

In their first joint statement since announcing their divorce to the surprise of no one last week, Jon and Kate Gosselin say they are done with celebrity news:

“During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. Our goal is to do the very best for our children."

The statement continues: "That will be done as privately as possible. We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many. Thank you.”

Wow guys, doing something with the kids in mind? A novel concept! One would think this thought process would occur before whoring them out on a reality show, then banging the random teacher and/or bodyguard, but good for you!

Tonight’s episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be a retrospective attempt to gloss over the ugliness of multiple affairs and keep viewers focused on the cute kids look at the Gosselins, who were married for 10 years until last Monday.

Some "new footage" is promised as well. What do you think that could be? Here's hoping for the long-awaited network debut of Deanna Hummel's sex tape.

As TLC scrambles to decide what the hell to do with a show that, ironically, is becoming a major hit and rapidly disintegrating at the same time, a very special retrospective episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8 will air this evening.

"Jon & Kate Plus 8: The First 10 Years" will look back at Jon and Kate Gosselin's decade of marriage (which ended last week after publicly unraveling for months), and provide "a look at what's up next" for the parents of eight.

A couple of things that could be "up next" ...

  • Lots of meetings with blood-sucking lawyers
  • Jon's mistress Deanna Hummel guest-starring
  • Kate in a bikini 24/7/365 to make Jon jealous
  • The kids discovering the Internet, learning about their parents' messed-up lives and being permanently scarred as a result

Here's the preview for tonight's episode ...

We've seen how it all came crumbling down after these terrific 10 years. Follow the jump for last week's tearful announcement of Jon and Kate's separation ...

Jon & Kate Plus 9. Jon & Kate & Deanna Hummel Plus 8. Jon & Deanna Plus an Ex-Wife and 8 Kids ... These titles don't seem to roll off the tongue, do they?

Perhaps for that reason, TLC is denying rumors that Jon Gosselin's mistress is joining the show when Jon & Kate Plus 8 it returns with new episodes in August.

Now that Jon and Kate Gosselin are separating, rumors swirled that teacher Deanna Hummel, 23, who has been seeing Jon this year, would come on board.

Not so much, says the network.

GIANT HOME WRECKER: Despite initial assertions that she and Jon are just friends, Deanna Hummel is widely believed to be the woman he was cheating on Kate with.

"There are no plans to use her," a rep for TLC said of the Deanna Hummel rumors. "We are in hiatus and all future episodes haven't even been planned."

The rumor was launched in today's New York Daily News, which said "Deanna's role isn't expected to be big, but because she's part of Jon's life, she'll be filmed."

Well, here's hoping they change their mind there. Imagine the kids asking their new stepmom whether that's really her getting pummeled on that sex video.

Following the divorce announcement of Jon and Kate Gosselin on Monday's episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8, the New York Daily News reports that his reported girlfriend, Deanna Hummel, is expected to join the show when it returns August 3.

TLC announced Tuesday that it was pulling the plug on new episodes of the series for now. But the show will resume with Deanna Hummel on board.

"Deanna's role isn't expected to be big, but because she's part of Jon's life, she'll be filmed," says an insider reportedly close to the embattled star.

Hummel's affair with Jon Gosselin was exposed in early May, when his marriage to Kate and her terrible hair began to unravel very publicly.

Here's a photo of the new woman in Jon's life ...

The source added that the show will focus on how Jon and Kate are raising their brood separately. The duo plans to flip-flop the days they reside in their $1.1 million Pennsylvania home so the children will not have to shuttle between parents.

A spokeswoman for TLC confirmed the show's hiatus and said, in lieu of the new episodes, a retrospective of the couple's 10 years of marriage will air.

"During this time, the family will take some time off to regroup," said the rep. Of Deanna Hummel joining the show, the spokeswoman would say only:

"We have no specific plans for future episodes."

No word on whether future episodes will involve Jon telling his kids about Deanna's alleged sex tape or the eBay sale of the bed on which it took place.

With Jon and Kate Gosselin having separated and announcing they are getting a divorce, varying accounts have surfaced regarding the legality of their separation.

There's a report floating out there that Kate Gosselin has been separated for two years from Jon. That is actually untrue, and the reason why is as follows.

Kate Dances

There are two grounds for a no-fault divorce in Pennsylvania:

  1. Waiting 90 days after the papers are filed. If the Gosselins agree that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" at that point, a divorce can proceed.
  2. That they have lived separately and apart for two years. That doesn't necessarily mean they've been separated for that long in reality. It means she must wait two years from the moment she considered the marriage over and began "living separately" (if only in different rooms).

In filing for divorce, Kate selected both of these options.

Sources say the real separation between Jon and Kate is very recent, but Kate checked off both to get the clock ticking on dissolving the couple's union.

Why would she check both boxes? Because Jon may not agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken. If that's the case she has to wait the two years.

So by checking both boxes, Kate is hedging her bets. Ultimately, she would have to prove to the judge when she considered herself separate from Jon.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 is on hiatus until at least August 3.
