Jon Gosselin spoke to photographers as he arrived at JFK airport in NYC Tuesday -- armed with $702 in cash and slew of large Gucci bags -- following his trip to France with 22-year-old girlfriend Hailey Glassman. Asked how Glassman is doing, the 32-year-old father of eight shrugged his shoulders.
Asked what ex Kate thinks of party girl Glassman (the daughter of the surgeon who performed her 2006 tummy tuck), Jon said, "I guess you'd have to ask Kate." He then added that he's "not allowed" to discuss the relationship. "I don't want to get in trouble," he told photographers.
"I had to film," he said, noting that they still have 34 episodes left to shoot. (After a month-long hiatus, the TLC show returns Aug. 3.) Jon also briefly addressed his Ed Hardy gig. He previously said that he and Glassman had been offered a job to design a children's clothing line with Ed Hardy fashion designer Christian Audigier. But reps for the clothing company later denied his claim. Asked for a status update, Jon simply said he was "offered" a gig.
"I have to go through a lot of paper[work]," he told photographers, stressing that nothing was final. Was the offer good? "Yeah, I think so," he said, adding that the Ed Hardy brand is "pretty popular." Despite all the drama in his personal life, Jon seemed in good spirits. Photographers asked him if life was good. As he hopped in his chauffer-driven car, he replied, "Yeah."
