LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Fans looking to party with Jon Gosselin had their chance on Saturday.
The reality dad hosted a pool party at Wet Republic at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, attended by dozens of bikini- and swimsuit-clad partygoers.
While Jon’s girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, was nowhere to be seen, he had one special lady along with him – his mom, Pamela Gosselin Castello.
“I wanted to always take her to Vegas,” Jon told reporters on the red carpet.
The “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star is also set to meet with clothing designer Christian Audigier on Monday, who he linked up with weeks ago in France.
“Everything’s in the works,” Jon said of a possible business venture with the Ed Hardy designer.
And of his kids, six of whom started pre-school this week, he said the first day of school went well.
“They called me and they said it was good,” he said. “They were excited – first time on a bus.”
While Jon was taking a dip in Las Vegas, estranged wife Kate was hosting a pool party of her own for the former couple’s eight kids as well as her bodyguard, Steve Neild, and his family, E! Online reported.
Despite past rumors of an affair between Kate and her bodyguard, he reportedly arrived with his wife and two teenage sons to go swimming.
“The kids all went swimming,” a source on the scene told E! Online. “They were splashing around in the pool and having a really good time.”
