Reality-show trainwreck Jon Gosselin, of "Jon & Kate Plus 8," bailed on a paid nightclub appearance at Foxwoods over the weekend. The tabloid regular had a deal with the MGM Grand club Shrine to show up on Saturday night, but Gosselin cancelled at the last minute, saying through his agent that he didn't want a paid nightclub visit to damage what's left of his image. As if he reputation could get any worse.

Gosselin apparently told the nightclub that his surprise appearance at Shrine and the Foxwoods nightclub Scorpion Bar earlier in the week should satisfy his contractual obligation. Staffers, who seem to have little loyalty to Gosselin after he skipped Saturday's gig, tell us that when he showed up unexpectedly at the clubs last Tuesday, confusing employees who expected him days later, Gosselin ended the night by taking a few women up to his hotel room. One staffer, a server at Shrine who says she was invited up to the room, claims that Gosselin made out with one of the women and then asked that any photos taken of the evening's events not be posted on Facebook. Classy, yes? No word on what Gosselin was supposed to be paid for the Saturday appearance or if he'll get his money.
