Jon Gosselin’s Ex-Girlfriend Fishing for Book Deal

jk8.jpg
Hailey Glassman, the ex-girlfriend of reality television star Jon Gosselin, fired off an informal book proposal during a guest post at Radar.com. In her piece, Glassman suggested that she had enough dirt on the former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 to float an entire book.

Here’s an excerpt: “I figured I’d save this torture I went through and life lessons and all the real juicy crazy stuff the media did not get a hold of for a BOOK. It will make everything make more sense — time lines, evidence of time lines. Just the whole nightmare of this annoying, traumatic, hurtful Soap Opera, which encumbers so many lives around us with the media and public hating and talking so much smack that it made ‘nobodies’ into ‘notorious.’ SUE ME if there’s not one true thing in the book it will be all 110% TRUE. I have kept all evidence and people, you would be SHOCKED!”

This seemed like the ideal topic to discuss a couple days before a long holiday weekend. What do you think? Can the ex-girlfriend of a minor reality television celebrity land a book deal in this economy?
