Out with the old, in with the new.
While his war with estranged wife Kate and the TLC network is raging, Jon is determined to push ahead with his new reality TV project, The Divorced Dads’ Club.
The show, which would likely include Michael Lohan, is Jon’s new focus and RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that he intends to make girlfriend Hailey Glassman a regular.
“Jon wants the show to feature the guys’ girlfriends,” a source familiar with the project told RadarOnline.com. “He’s promised Hailey that she will be a big part of the show. The show will focus on each dad’s life and Jon’s life with Hailey will be a big part of it.”
Jon has said he doesn’t want TLC filming his children anymore and believes it is detrimental to them while he and Kate are divorcing. But the source familiar with the situation told RadarOnline.com that Jon wants to have his children on his new show!
Hailey, who just underwent breast surgery as reported by RadarOnline.com, has always wanted to be famous, sources tell RadarOnline.com. She tried out for MTV’s Real World and enjoys the notoriety of being with Jon, despite sometimes public protestations. (On Friday she tweeted: “Its time 2 move on<This drama has taken over my life,nevermind the entire like world<So beyond stressful.Like living in a state of paranoia!”)
But Hailey is actually enjoying her pseudo celebrity, the sources say, and very much wants to be on Jon’s new show. And while she certainly doesn’t have a weight problem, she’s even talked about losing a few pounds to look thinner on camera!
Of course, before any of this happens there’s the matter that Jon signed an exclusive deal with TLC and the network is not letting him out of it, even though they are changing the show name to Kate Plus 8.
