Is playboy bachelorJon Gosselin actually trying to repair what's left of his rep?
The star of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 canceled a club appearance at the last minute because of concerns about his image.
Jon wasn't scheduled to host an event at the Foxwoods Resort in Connecticut until this Saturday, but he made an early, surprise visit to the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, hitting up the Scorpion bar and Shrine nightclub Tuesday night.
According to a waitress at the club, Jon kept the party going in his room after leaving the club—bringing along a few special ladies who were not his supposed girlfriend Hailey Glassman...
"He was kissing and being intimate on the bed with one of the young women," the waitress tells E! News. "He limited the number of photos taken in the room and asked that those taken not end up on Facebook."
Despite his efforts to keep a lid on the liaisons, Jon was apparently displeased that media got wind of his whereabouts and decided to cancel his paid club appearance.
"Gosselin was not happy that the media was alerted of his visit," a hotel rep tells E! News. "In a cancellation email to Shrine management, Gosselin's agent stated 'Jon is furious that it was leaked' and 'that was really what did it in for him.' He alluded to the fact that he did not want his image to be tarnished with paid nightclub appearances."
As if having multiple twentysomething girlfriends and wearing head-to-toe Ed Hardy gear doesn't tarnish his image already.
Word to the wise, Jon: You're lucky nightclubs are still willing to pay you for appearances. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
Maybe he'll be a little smarter when he hosts a pool party at Wet Republic in Sin City on Saturday.
Then again, probably not.
