Jon Gosselin may be strapped for cash, but he's got a plan: another new girlfriend.

"He has a new forty-something Washington, D.C., love interest," a Gosselin insider says in the new issue of Us Weekly, out now. "She's rich -- and he's hoping to have her back one of his projects."

But how attractive of an investment is a guy who can't even keep his car? "Jon is selling his BMW to raise cash until he gets a job," says another source close to the reality star, 33. "He's hoping to get $25,000 for it." (Jon bought the used M3 last year for $30,000.)

And while ex-wife Kate, 35, took a VIP-guided tour of Disneyland with their eight children April 17 -- and lounged poolside the day prior at the Luxe Beverly Wilshire hotel -- Jon was hatching money-making schemes.

"He has been lobbying TLC to get a show of his own," the insider says. (His ex's Twist of Kate debuts on the channel this summer.) "It's killing him that Kate is having all of this success."
