(Newser) In Touch is reporting that Jon Gosselin, beleaguered reality-show father of eight, is engaged to his latest 20-something galpal—and even Perez Hilton doesn’t believe it. After all, one of Hailey Glassman’s friends has called her a “fame whore,” Hilton points out. If it is true, the classy proposal included an $180,000 skull-shaped engagement ring and a suggestion they get hitched in Vegas.

How will the lovebirds make a living? E! insists Gosselin’s clothing line with Christian Audigier is still a go, though a rep denied the first report. Now Audigier says “it should be” happening, and his rep concedes, “If Christian told you directly, then that’s exactly what he’s doing.” The kids collection, designed by Gosselin and his lady friend, is due in stores next month.
