Hailey Glassman is just "a normal 22-year-old girl." So how did she turn into "the goldfish that was put in the piranha tank"?
Aka the naive, home-wrecking pothead who's merely a member of Jon Gosselin's post-marital harem.
The admitted college-era weed smoker (it happens) exclusively tells E! News that, about five years ago, the only thing she had to say about the Jon & Kate Plus 8 star was, "Wow, you've got a lot of kids."
But now, she is really, truly in love with her family friend turned boyfriend, and she thinks there is plenty of blame to go around for her 15-plus minutes of infamy.
"Before all this, I was happy-go-lucky," Glassman said in a recent sit-down with E!
"I was never a follower, I was never a gossiper, I did my own thing. To be honest, this whole thing, I have lost my happiness through this all. I don't want to say the public and media stripped me of my self-esteem.
"But they really have. I've been the sacrificial lamb in this situation."
And don't even get her started on TLC's role in this fiasco.
