(Newser) – Jon Gosselin’s quest for fame hit a new low with Hailey Glassman’s Insider interview—the octodad apparently invented Glassman’s claims of emotional abuse. “Jon and Hailey get paid for their appearances on these shows and they need the money,” a source tells Fox News, adding that Jon “really wants a reality show of his own, and he is stretching out every moment of the drama for a dollar.”

Speaking of his very own reality show, the source also confirms Gosselin was considering the reality special with octomom Nadya Suleman. “He has to do something and this would have been funny, plus Hailey had no problem going along with the fake dates and pretending to be upset,” the source says. Meanwhile, Glassman tweeted that she is “semi-single,” Us adds—but, tragically, “not yet ready to mingle.”
