Jon Gosselin's New York apartment vandalized

Just when you thought you might get through the Christmas weekend without any more bizarre or disgusting Gosselin news, alsong comes this TMZ report that Jon Gosselin returned to his New York apartment Saturday to find his clothes slashed, a vase smashed and a note stuck to a dresser with a butcher knife.

I just put the saga of "Jon & Kate" on my list of the Top 10 TV stories of the year because of the sociology of seeing a family come unglued on TV before our eyes. I thought the ugly and unhappy ending to this TLC series had pushed reality TV across a new line that might lead to some blowback and public revulsion for the genre -- at least when it involves putting children on TV. But the real-life players in this sad story just keep acting crazier and crazier. One really does have to wonder where it will ever end.

Here's a bit of what TMZ is reporting (the quotes come from Jon's attorney Mark Heller): "...When Jon entered his Manhattan apartment this afternoon, he found his 'shoes, shirts, luggage, bed, curtain, rugs and other furnishings' had been slashed by a 'sick perpetrator.'"

"...Jon's 'television, CD player, coffee maker, a Nintendo Wii game, dishes, pots and pans were burglarized from his apartment.' Heller also says a 'Ming vase, believed to be over 100 years old ... was smashed to pieces.'

Several sites are reporting that the note "speared" to the dresser is signed by Hailey Glassman, Jon's ex-girlfriend. Why would she sign it? No New york City police official has confirmed that she did sign it. But in this screwy story, who knows why any of the players do the things they do?

But what do you think? Was Jon's apartment really trashed -- or is he making it up? Is he getting desperate now that TLC has cut off his ability to make a fast buck selling interviews and pictures to sleazy Web sites and syndicated TV programs?
