Dancing With The Stars: Derek Hough On Kate Gosselin’s Elimination

April 26, 2010 09:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Kate Gosselin received more than her share of criticism during her five-week run on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, but she did manage to make a good impression on a fellow DWTS star: dance pro Derek Hough. Hough, who is partnered with Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger, has nothing but love for the reality TV mother of eight. Keep reading for more on what he has to say about what Gosselin represented on the show…

The most controversial contestant on this season of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars was not the Baywatch babe or the recently stalked ESPN sportscaster. It was a Pennsylvania-based mother of eight. Kate Gosselin, best known for her reality shows Jon & Kate plus 8 and Kate plus 8, managed to stir up a lot of gossip and rumors during her five weeks on the dance competition. Although there were reports circulating of diva behavior on Gosselin’s part, the rest of the DWTS cast seems to have nothing but love for the competitor, who was eliminated on last week’s show.

Dance pro Derek Hough thinks that Gosselin was the perfect representation of what ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars is all about. “She represented all those mothers at home with their kids that watch the show that think ‘I would love to do that.’ She lived it and they lived through her experience,” Hough says.

Hough also says that Gosselin enjoyed her time on Dancing With the Stars and the entire cast genuinely liked getting to know her. “Given the current circumstances she’s in and the press that surrounds her, she had a lot of fun,” Hough says. “Even though it’s stressful and terrifying, it’s an absurd experience to learn a new skill and rehearse for hours every day and then perform on live television. This was a once-in-a-lifetime thing for her. It wasn’t just a dance show. You learn so much about yourself as a person, how far you can push yourself, your work ethic. She was fantastic.”
