Gosselin's Gal Pal: Jon Throws 'Mantrums'
Hailey Glassman tells "The Insider" that reality star is like "Jekyl and Hyde."
Oct. 29, 2009 -- Jon Gosselin is the father of eight children under six years old. Yet, he's the one throwing temper fits, according to his girlfriend Hailey Glassman.
His 22-year-old girlfriend is going to tell "The Insider" that Gosselin throws "mantrums" and often takes his anger out on her.
"I shouldn't have to put up with being emotionally abused," Glassman says. " I cry and say, 'Why are you so mean to me?' "
In a two-part interview, she will talk about the trials of dating the father of the once picture-perfect family of multiples featured on TV's "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
"People judge me before they meet me. I get threats every day. I get called a home wrecker and a fat whore. People will stare or point. It gets worse every day."
She says that she's the first person to admit that their relationship is "not normal."
"I don't want to leave him all alone," she says. "At the end of the day, I love him but I dislike him at times. When I love someone I would never hurt them."
Although his financial and career situation appears to be in flux, Jon Gosselin's religious life is not, as he gets ready to celebrate a new "plus eight": the eight nights of Hanukkah.
Gosselin, who claims he's half Jewish, said he plans to rediscover his faith and toast "family values" with girlfriend Glassman this holiday season.
"This is the first year I will celebrate Hanukkah," he told ParentDish.com in an interview posted on the site Oct. 9. "Hailey is Jewish. Everyone in my life is Jewish now, my attorney. I love it. I'm now half Jewish and half Korean. The family values are great. On Christmas, I'll see my kids during the day for a couple of hours."
Gosselin also gabbed about his love for all things Jewish, including challah bread, keeping kosher and discovering the New York City grocery store Zabar's, founded by the gourmand Eli Zabar.
"I just went through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and learned about the New Year and every Friday is the Shabbat dinner," he said. "I love challah bread. I'm learning about Jewish food, going to Zabar's. I love that place. I'm learning about kosher and when not to order a bacon, egg and cheese and make an ass of myself. Hailey makes fun of me."
