Dancing With The Stars: Evan Lysacek Remains Close With Kate Gosselin

June 14, 2010 09:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Despite tabloid reports that Kate Gosselin stirred up drama on the set of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, her former competitor, Evan Lysacek, has nothing but wonderful things to say about the single mother of eight. The Olympic gold medalist calls Gosselin the “sweetest woman in the world” and says the two have remained close since the DWTS finale. Keep reading for more detail on what Lysacek has to say about his former competition…

One person who was saddened by Kate Gosselin’s departure on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars is her former competitor, Evan Lysacek. “We were instantly friends and everyone really loved her on the show,” Lysacek says about Gosselin. “We missed her so much when she left. She’s hilarious and she’s always joking around. I don’t think she ever said a serious sentence.”

The Kate plus 8 star got a bad rap while competing on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars when reports continued to surface about her diva-like behavior on set. Lysacek certainly didn’t notice anything rude or unpleasant about Gosselin. “We are very close. She is the sweetest woman in the world,” Lysacek says.

Prior to filming ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin was already a tabloid staple, but Evan Lysacek didn’t know much about her. He also thinks her reputation is unfair. “I’m not a big tabloid reader and I was so focused on the Olympics and I never watched TV,” he says. “She’s got a lot to deal with. If I had eight kids, I can’t imagine. I’m sure it’s pretty tough and sometimes that’s misconstrued with Kate. But she’s an amazing mom and a tough lady. She was constantly showing pictures and videos of her kids and missing them.”
