(Newser) – Collecting phone numbers, drinking Veuve Clicquot in his cabana, starting a Twitter feed: It was all in a day's work for Jon Gosselin, who hosted a Las Vegas pool party at the MGM Grand on Saturday, People reports. “It looks like we'll have a good time,” the reality dad said upon arriving to the party, attended by 2,000 people—including a few who shouted, “We love Kate!” E! adds.

Jon didn’t seem fazed by the razzing, though he couldn’t have been happy that his mom—his date for the event—also overheard comments like, “Go sleep with that 18-year-old.” That didn’t stop him from taking photos and mixing drinks with the bikini-clad women who flocked to his private bungalow. He also hit Vegas hot spots Cirque du Soleil and Craftsteak during his visit, and plans to meet with Ed Hardy's Christian Audigier today to discuss their rumored line.
