Dancing With The Stars: Kate Gosselin Has The Support Of Her Kids

April 20, 2010 11:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Despite being at the center of controversy during her stint on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin says she has the support of the eight people that matter most: her kids. The Kate plus 8 star insists that her kids love the show and are rooting for her to keep going in the competition. She also opens up about clashing with partner, Tony Dovolani, and why she agreed to do the show in the first place…

Kate Gosselin has earned more than her share of criticism during her run thus far on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, but the single mother of eight has the enthusiastic support of her kids. “This is the first and only thing I have ever done that my kids care about,” Gosselin says. “It pushes me on to do better, to stay on the show, to get voted through because, honestly, they count down the days until Monday.”

When producers of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars offered Gosselin a spot in the season 10 cast, she didn’t think twice before saying yes. “There were no cons,” she says about being on the show. “I figured they’ll whip my body into shape when I needed it. The pros were — I still don’t know how to dance, but I was hoping I would learn how to dance.” Since joining the cast however, she has discovered the downside of the competition. Especially when it comes to partner, Tony Dovolani, who she regularly clashes with on–and off–camera.

“That’s the law across the board with all dancers,” the Kate plus 8 star says of her and Dovolani’s arguments. “I asked for somebody who would push me really, really hard because I need that. I have a lot of distraction in my life … We can’t just dance we have to dance with all the drama.”

Despite the occasional spat with Dovolani and rumors of diva-like behavior, Kate Gosselin has managed to make some friends on the set of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars. One unlikely pal she’s discovered is fellow single mom, Pamela Anderson. “We sit in the hair and makeup chair next to each other and talk about our kids. She’s awesome,” Gosselin says. “I have gotten to know the Pam that is just a mom that drops her kids off at school. She’s given me advice about what it’s like to be a single mom.”
