She said she can speak freely on the situation because "no network owns what I can and cannot say."

She added, "People need to realize there's two sides to every story… TLC, they're telling something, but the truth is always in that fuzzy area. You can't touch it, but only the people contracted can see it, but no one can say it."

Glassman also claimed that Jon is not having a fling with nanny Stephanie Santoro – despite over-night sleepovers.

"Jon has a good heart, she has a child and he felt bad," she said. "He knows how it feels to have a child and not be able to afford, you know, so he hired her to give her a job."

As for her future with Jon, Glassman said, "I don't like to talk in the future. I like to live in the present. As of right now, I want to be happy. I want Jon to be happy. I want every side to be happy."
