Kate Gosselin Depressed Over Dancing With the Stars Criticism

Poor, pitiful Kate Gosselin. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality TV mom is apparently taking the criticism of the Dancing With the Stars judges quite hard. Gosselin was picked apart by the judges yet again Monday night after her lackluster dance performance and it seems all the negativity about her dancing skills is getting her down.

Kate Gosselin got creamed by the judges yet again after her fox trot Monday night, scoring a sad 15 for her routine with partner Tony Dovolani. We kind of love that judge Bruno Tonioli told Dovolani he would be better off dancing with “a coat hanger.” Harsh!

“I had fun, and they didn’t seem to notice,” Kate Gosselin told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s starting to creep in a little bit. Tonight, I was trying to hold back horrible emotions… probably not on live TV should I be standing there crying in front of the judges… It’s getting a little difficult. I’m depressed, sort of.”

Frankly we’d probably be a bit depressed if we were embarrassing ourselves on national television the same way Kate Gosselin is on Dancing With the Stars. Although we do have to give her a little bit of props for actually managing to smile while dancing at the same time this week! That has to be super hard!

Jon Gosselin Wants to Reunite with Kate Gosselin on TV

Jon Gosselin is apparently eager to get back with ex-wife Kate Gosselin – at least on TV. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality TV dad says he is “definitely open” to co-starring with his former wife on a new TV project.

Of course, since Jon Gosselin is reportedly preparing to sue Kate Gosselin for full custody of their kids, we’re thinking she’s probably not very open to that idea. Still, Jon Gosselin doesn’t seem to think a little thing like a nasty custody battle should interfere in his quest to get back on television.

Gosselin’s attorney told TMZ.com his client would certainly be happy to consider co-starring with his ex-wife on a new TV program “under the right circumstances.” One condition of such collaboration, Gosselin’s attorney said, would be a much “tighter” contract. Jon Gosselin got slammed by TLC not long ago for allegedly breaching his contract with the network by doing interviews and endorsements without their permission.

Last week, Jon Gosselin’s lawyer revealed the former reality TV dad was preparing to sue Kate Gosselin for full custody of their eight children because her quest for fame is “damaging his kids.” Gosselin claims his ex-wife is an “absentee mom” who cares more about her career than the welfare of her children, citing her gig on Dancing With the Stars as an example.

Then, naturally, Jon Gosselin turns right around and talks about how he wants to get some of that fame back for himself. Well, considering he’s unemployed and paying out huge loads of cash to Kate Gosselin in spousal support, we’re not surprised. We’re pretty sure Kate Gosselin will be telling him to stuff it all the way around. And a judge isn’t likely to award full custody of their kids to a man with pretty much no job and a shaky string of girlfriends rotating through his door.

Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin Custody Battle Over Dancing With the Stars?

Jon Gosselin apparently thinks his ex-wife Kate Gosselin is spending too much time on her Dancing With the Stars gig and not enough with their kids. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star is reportedly preparing to ask a judge to grant him primary custody of their children.

Jon Gosselin’s lawyer, Anthony F. List, told TMZ.com his client is ready to petition for primary custody of his eight children with ex-wife Kate Gosselin. List called her an “absentee mom” who does not spend enough “quality time with the 8 kids.” Gosselin allegedly plans to use his ex-wife’s gig on Dancing With the Stars as evidence that she is ignoring their children in favor of her career.

Jon Gosselin also may ask for spousal and child support from Kate Gosselin, a reverse of the judge’s previous ruling. List said it was “ridiculous” for Jon Gosselin to be paying his ex-wife $20,000 a month for child support when she is allegedly not spending any time with the kids.

Any way you slice it, it’s really the kids here that are getting screwed. It’s either “absentee” mom or girlfriend-hopping, unemployed dad. Neither seems all that fabulous of a choice in our opinion.

Kate Gosselin on Dancing With the Stars Diva Drama

There have been few things more painful to watch on television than Kate Gosselin on Dancing With the Stars Monday night. Even Buzz Aldrin, who looks like he’s going to break into pieces any moment, looked more graceful on the dance floor than the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 reality TV mom.

We still can’t figure out why on Earth Kate Gosselin would volunteer to be humiliated in such an extremely public manner. Oh, wait, money and fame… we forgot. Seriously though, the whole Dancing With the Stars gig is just showing off more and more how much of a self-involved, talentless diva she really is. Her whole ‘pity me cause my life is so hard’ crap is just about as fake as her hair – and yes, we are saying it – her boobs.

Did Kate Gosselin really think back-talking her professional dancing partner, Tony Dovolani, was going to make her look cool? Or throwing out that “I’ve had a lot of people quit on me in life” quip during her spat with Dovolani was going to make viewers feel any kind of sympathy for her? Please.

It might at least be entertaining to watch Kate Gosselin on Dancing With the Stars if she had any hint of acting or dancing ability. She doesn’t. If it were us, we wouldn’t have gone back and played nicey-nice with her after walking out on her BS, like Dovolani did – contracts and paychecks be damned. You couldn’t pay us enough to put up with that woman’s verbal abuse and nasty attitude for even as long as it would take us to tell her to shove her dancing shoes somewhere the sun don’t shine.

Kate Gosselin Dancing With the Stars?

Rumor has it former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star Kate Gosselin will be kicking up her heels on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. The official cast list for the new DWTS season hasn’t been announced yet, but various sources are reporting Kate Gosselin will be among the competitors.

Radio host Lisa Stanley reportedly said Kate Gosselin has been practicing for Dancing With the Stars “under a shroud of security,” according to BuddyTV.com. Gosselin previously told Jay Leno she’d like to do Dancing With the Stars, despite her admission that she “so cannot dance. It would be a sad sight.”

The official cast of Dancing With the Stars season 10 will be announced during The Bachelor finale on Monday. Other rumored contestants include diver Greg Louganis, John Stamos, Kevin Federline and Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek. As for the pros, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough will reportedly be returning this year, but Karina Smirnoff, Jonathan Roberts and Lacey Schwimmer will not.

Frankly, we’re not sure if we really believe Kate Gosselin would be lame enough to abandon her eight children for the grueling rehearsal schedule of Dancing With the Stars. On the other hand, it might be pretty damn amusing to watch her getting skewered by the DWTS judges — so we actually do kind of hope the rumor is true in that regard. But we’d still feel pretty lousy for the kids if mom decided to dump them on the nannies yet again for the sake of her ‘career’.

Kate Gosselin New Hair Praised by Homewrecker Hailey Glassman

Jon Gosselin‘s ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman has come out in support of Kate Gosselin‘s new hair choice. To us, this would be a really great reason to chop off those rather fake-looking blond locks immediately. Glassman told Entertainment Tonight she just ‘loves’ Kate Gosselin’s new hairstyle.

Talk about a fame-whore with absolutely no sense of decency! Hailey Glassman, who until recently was shacked up with former reality TV show dad Jon Gosselin, just had to comment about Kate Gosselin and her new hairdo. Like Kate Gosselin really, really wants to hear anything about her coming out of the mouth of the 20-something former pothead about her looks.

“I love it,” Glassman said of Gosselin’s new long hair. “I think she looks amazing. I’m not gonna lie, she looks really good.” Glassman did note, as many have in the gossip monger world, that the haircut does still have some subtle mullet resemblance. “It’s ’80s meets 2010 — she has the party in the back and short in the front.”

The debate continues on whether the Kate Gosselin new hair look is classy or trashy, but we think it would super nice if Jon Gosselin’s girlfriends could keep their damn mouths shut about anything having to do with the poor woman. No recently divorced gal wants to hear commentary on their looks from their ex’s famebangers.

Kate Gosselin New Hair – Classy or Trashy?

Kate Gosselin is diving into the new year with a brand new attitude and a new hairdo to match – and minus the baggage of former husband Jon Gosselin. Kate Gosselin has replaced her trademark short hairstyle with long, blonde locks, but honestly we’re not sure if this is a good thing.

Sure, Kate Gosselin does look younger on the cover of People with her new blond hair extensions. Of course, Photoshop probably has a lot to do with that. She also, however, looks kind of celebrity-whorish in our never humble opinion. Basically, she now looks like every other reality TV fame banger chick out there. Real (Ex) Housewives of Pennsylvania anyone? Next she’ll be getting breast implants – unless she’s already done that…  Somehow that blond weave makes Kate Gosselin look way more ‘cougar’ than MILF – which we think is a move in the wrong direction.

Kate Gosselin told People her new hairdo backs up her new attitude of having a “fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life.” The reality TV mom of eight said she felt good having hair again. “I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did.”

We kind of miss the spiky, weirdly lopsided hair. At least it made her unique. Now she just looks like every other Hollywood wannabee that ever stretched their 15 minutes of fame way too far.
