Jon Gosselin Fashions Himself a Designer

7/13/2009 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

His reality show may have ended his marriage, but it's also giving Jon Gosselin a douchey clothing line for kids.

Jon -- with his new 22-year-old GF Hailey Glassman by his side -- has been partying up in St. Tropez with bedazzler extraordinaire Christian Audigier and are going into the children's fashion biz together -- with a line that might even be featured at Kmart. The best part, Jon's eight rugrats will be used as models for the clothing line.

Those poor kids need more fame about as much as they do a tacky, rhinestoned dragon and skeleton t-shirt.

It's funny how many people are dissing on this guy. How many months ago were people dissing on Kate for being mean to Jon? If I was a man being verbally abused by my spouse I'd probably go find a 22 year old who gave a damn too! WTG Jon for being true to who you are and taking care of yourself. The 1st thing a GOOD parent does is takes care of themselves first because if they don't then they don't parent accurately. He did what he had to do so him and Kate can be the parents that those children need.

And as for pimping out the kids...they will love this! Granted the shirts are dog ugly but they are kids and probably won't care. This will be a fun gig.

OMG KATE PLEASE GET A JUDGE TO DENY HIM TO USE YOUR CHILDREN TO MODEL THESE CLOTHES. THEY HAVE HAD ENOUGH ALREADY. YOU TWO NEED TO STOP ALL THIS BULL CRAP, AND BE PARENTS, NOT BLOOD SUCKERS OF YOUR KIDS, AND LET THEM LIVE A NORMAL LIFE ALREADY. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU FOR PUTTING THESE PRECIOUS CHILDREN THROUGH ALL OF THIS. I DEFINATELY WILL NOT ALLOW MY KIDS TO BUY ANY OF THESE CLOTHES. THEY ARE HORRIBLE ANY WAY, AND NOT SOMETHING A 5 YR. OR 8 YR. OLDS SHOULD BE MODELING. PLEASE DENY THIS FOR GOD'S SAKE. NO FOR YOUR CHILDREN SAKE. IF YOU ALLOW THIS, THEN YOU BOTH SHOULD LOSE THESE KIDS ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Umm, if she's only 22 then she's had a really hard life. She's what we call "rode hard and put up wet." She looks great if she's really 45.

Everyone need's to keep in mind here that John HAS been in contact with Kate, she knew of his plan's of going to France.
She had to agree to the contract of letting the kid's model the clothes. It also requires her signature. People who are all for Kate need to WAKE UP !!! John just can't sign the kid's on without her signature.

This is all getting to be so barf sickening. PA need's to step in and get these kid's away from John & Kate !! They have been exploitied since they were born. This is just bad, bad, BAD !!

This whole clothing line deal was discussed between John & Kate before he even flew over to France. She is in on it just as much as John. She is more to blame, ALL men are so immature, he has allot of growing up to do, he doesn't know any better. And with Kate it's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$ !

You people act as thou John & Kate never talk. Get real !! While in France they have talked a number of times a day about this new adventure. They may be getting a divorce, but Kate is still involved in what is important to her $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Someone need's to put a stop to it soon !!

Those kid's already are going to me a mess !!

Team John

As if Kate would let her kids take any part in modeling these clothes. You would think Jon would know Kate by now.

What an idiot. I don't think it's wrong to move on with your life after a relationship has ended but I do object to having 8 children and not even allowing the divorce to be final before you're opening stepping out on your wife with someone whom you've claimed was just a friend in the very recent past... it does make it look like he was cheating and all he is doing is helping Kate get what she wants out of the situation and makes the public who already didn't love Jon hate his arse!

Gotta love how Jon was so down and upset because he didn't want to continue the show and be in the public eye, but it's totally OK for him to put his children further in the public eye and making them work more by modeling, photoshoots etc.... It' no extra effort for him, he probably doesn't dress them anyway--I can't imagine that forcing little girls or boys to wear ugly clothes they hate would be asny picnic for the kids or for their nannies.. All he has to do is nod his head every once in a while at certain designs. Real designers will actually be working on the clothes.

They both agreed to do the show and signed a contract. At least Kate's activities beyone the show (book, speaking) don't further interfere with the childhoods of the kids.

It may be that Jon's finding someone else did a bug favor for Kate. But not for the kids.

I think Jon is a slug and about as smart as a rock, he has about as much ambition as a worm. Go smoke some dope, cigs and stumble around in your stupid shirts/ear rings and your 23 year old skanky girlfriend, your so f'n cool!
By the way, why in the world would a 23 girl want to get involved with s 32 year old guy with 8 kids?

Doesn't their mother get a say in this? Jon needs a reality check. Dating the daughter of a friend of the family? Gross. She may be an "adult" but her mother should have stepped in and told her to not date her friend's husband. Is this 22 yo going to be the step-mother of 8 kids? Kate is at home being a mom and this guy is living it up around the world. He needs to come off this mid-life crisis and be a father already.

Oooooh Jon. How quickly you forget that you have 8 children.
Wait, how could you forget THAT? Do yourself and them a favor and stay out of the spotlight. You're a father, not a frat boy.
Wise up.

JON IS A NASTY, UGLY MAN WHO DATES YOUNG GIRLS WITH EVERY OPPORTUNITY AND LIES ABOUT IT. WOULD YOU LET YOU KIDS WEAR CLOTHES DESIGNED BY THIS GUY? I THINK NOT! WHAT CRAZY STUPID IS HE IS IN THE PUBLIC EYE AND SO HIS EVERY MOVE IS WATCHED BY PHOTOGRAPHERS. WHY WOULD HE BOOP THE GIRL IN PUBLIC. HIS KIDS WILL SUFFER. DO YOU NOT THINK THEY WILL EVENTUALLY UNDERSTAND THAT THEIR DEAR OLD DAD LEFT THEM BECAUSE HE WAS TIRED OF DEALING WITH THEM. GET IT NEUTERED JON FIRST AND THEN GET A REAL JOB WITHOUT YOU CHILDREN DOING THE WORK. ITS SUPPOSE TO BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND! NOW THE KIDS ARE WORKING 2 JOBS TO KEEP YOU WITH YOUR GIRLY FRIEND AND YOUR HIGH LIVING! KATE WAS LUCKY TO LOSE THE LOSER. DEAD BEAT DADDY LIVIN OFF HIS KIDS! WHAT COULD BE WORSE!

Those kids are his lottery ticket and this 23 year old will own half in a year or so.
