PREACH IT! Hey! Here's a something-or-other about the Gosselins!

September 1, 2010 |  2:50 pm

Jon Gosselin It’s a slow news day; may as well play into Hailey Glassman’s hands.

Never has there been quite a pack of fame addicts quite so egregious as the Gosselins and their various hangers-on and exes. When it comes to manipulating the media into continuous coverage, the whole crew rivals even Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.

Observe the latest exploits of Glassman, onetime paramour of Jon Gosselin. On Wednesday, she came forth with an allegation so bombshell-y that it could easily lead to some combination of the following: criminal charges for Gosselin, a serious defamation lawsuit against Glassman herself. No matter what, a third outcome is almost certain: at least one week of fresh headlines for all parties involved.

By way of Radar, Glassman has accused Gosselin of trying to extort his ex-wife, perennial reality barnacle Kate Gosselin. According to Glassman, Jon Gosselin threatened to report ...

...  his ex-wife to Child Protective Services unless Kate gave Jon money. Apparently, one of the Gosselins’ children, Mady, had recently hurt her arm, and Jon was prepared to use the injury as false evidence against Kate, Glassman has alleged.

Jon Gosselin has addressed the accusation via Twitter, saying, "RadarOnline has been duped again by Hailey Glassman, who is apparently without a job and desperate for money."

Glassman, who likes to keep it classy, responded only with, "Look, the documents and the evidence speak for itself."

As long as Lindsay Lohan continues to do nothing special, you can count on the Ministry to keep reporting the Glassman-Gosselin story as it unfolds.
