Hailey Glassman Speaks Out JON’S MY ‘FIRST LOVE!’
Jon Gosselin just can’t seem to have a single drama-free week. First, former tabloid reporter Kate Major said in an interview that he should “man up and say the truth” about their alleged fling. Then, his estranged wife, Kate Gosselin, called the cops over a fight between her and Jon outside their Pennsylvania home on Aug. 13. According to Jon, Kate tried to come home early because she didn’t approve of Stephanie Santoro—a 23-year-old woman whom Jon asked to babysit. At least he still has Hailey Glassman (right), the daughter of Kate’s plastic surgeon, on his side. She told E! News, “People are painting Jon to be this cheater when he’s really not.” So are Glassman, 22, and the man she calls her “first love” in it for the long haul? Says Glassman: “I say let’s not make future goals, ’cause when you write things in stone it kind of leads to disappointment if it doesn’t work out.”
MINKA VS. KATE
Don’t expect Kate Hudson and Minka Kelly to become best buddies anytime soon. Kelly, 29, the Friday Night Lights star dating New York Yankee Derek Jeter, “stays under the radar, doesn’t sit with the wives or drag Derek to events,” says a source. Meanwhile, Hudson, 30, who’s romancing teammate Alex Rodriguez, brought parents Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell to a game, kissed A-Rod on the sidelines and sat in the family section, all of which is at odds with Kelly’s MO. So, the stars, like their beaus, “give each other the cold shoulder.”
Renée & Bradley
‘THEY JUST KINDA CLICK’
Following their PDA-filled trip to Barcelona, sources tell Scoop that Bradley Cooper and Renée Zellweger’s blossoming romance has the staying power his past flings lacked. “They get along really well and just kinda click,” a source says of the couple, who costar in the upcoming thriller Case 39. “Bradley likes the speed of everything. He likes that Renée is low-key. He likes to fly under the radar. Being with her is not as crazy as it was being with some of the previous women, like Jen [Aniston].” And just as important to the happy-go-lucky actor is Zellweger’s sense of humor. “She makes him laugh, which is big.”
Does Jessica Want to Replace Paula?
A recent newspaper report claims that Jessica Simpson‘s manager-dad, Joe, is pitching his daughter to American Idol producers as the “perfect replacement” for judge Paula Abdul. Not so, a rep for the singer, 29, tells Scoop: “There’s no truth [to the story]. No one reached out to the show.”

With his tour winding down and a clothing line about to debut, the crooner reveals his most bizarre fan encounter—and what he does in the shower!

I plug in my Mac to be sure I can get wireless. But I hardly ever stay in a hotel. I’ve got the most comfortable bed in the world on my bus!
