Oh, everyone involved with the Gosselins is just so sad these days!
Except maybe Jon.
"Before all this, I was happy-go-lucky," the 22-year-old said.
"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."
Calling herself "the goldfish that was put in the piranha tank," Hailey is blaming a lot of her misery on Jon & Kate Plus 8's network, TLC.
"More like the lying channel," Hailey shot at The Learning Channel. "TLC didn't allow [Jon and Kate] to come out and say their marriage was done a year ago," she said. But "no network owns what I can and cannot say."
As for her future with Jon, Hailey has no plans right now to be the step-mom of eight -- she's just looking for some peace.
"I don't like to talk in the future," she said. "I like to live in the present. As of right now, I want to be happy. I want Jon to be happy. I want every side to be happy.
"People need to realize there's two sides to every story...TLC, they're telling something but the truth is always in that fuzzy area. You can't touch it, but only the people contracted can see it, but no one can say it.
"It's a dirty, dirty world. Bamboozling, this world. I didn't know any of this would happen," Hailey swore of the media tornado. "If I wanted fame, don't you think I would be out all the time? I stay in my house. I've been staying home with my parents because I feel safe there."
Do you feel bad for Hailey?
