Kate Gosselin Acts Like “Major Celebrity” on DWTS; Demands Bodyguard

Kate Gosselin is so standoffish on Dancing With the Stars, she has show staffers contact her through her bodyguard, reports the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands today.

“When the show needs to contact Kate, they go through Steve,” a production source tells Us, adding that having personal security is not the norm for any of the other star competitors. “She acts like a major celebrity. It’s a joke with the cast, like, ‘Oh, look out — the bodyguard is watching!'”

And it’s not just any bodyguard.

Gosselin, 35, travels between her $1.1 million home in Pennsylvania and DWTS’ Los Angeles set with Steve Neild — with whom she’s been accused of having an affair by her estranged husband Jon. (Both Kate and the married Neild have denied infidelity.)

In fact, an insider tells Us that Gosselin and Neild even stay in adjoining hotel rooms in L.A.

Gosselin — who was criticized as looking like a “super bitch from hell” during last Monday’s dance — hasn’t bothered getting to know any of the other contestants either.

“When she is getting her hair done, she is on her BlackBerry the whole time… [she] is not making herself likable,” another insider says, adding that the type-A mom of twins Mady and Cara, 9, and sextuplets Aaden, Alexis, Collin, Hannah, Joel and Leah, has not been invited out to any of the cast’s Monday postshow afterparties.

“If she tagged along, they wouldn’t ask her to leave, but they wouldn’t be overjoyed either. She’s not much fun,” a production source says.

Still, pro dancer Derek Hough defends Gosselin.

“If anyone is allowed to be stressed, it’s Kate,” he tells Us. “She is so out of her element. She can act any way she wants, in my book.”

Kate Gosselin was frightened watching herself on DWTS

Cue the scary music!

When Kate Gosselin sat down to watch herself on Dancing with the Stars‘ elimination night this week, she says she saw someone playing the victim in a slasher film rather than a ballroom dancer.

“I’ve been told by more than one person … that on the night of the first DWTS elimination, the expression on my face looked like something out of a horror movie,” Gosselin, 35, writes on her blog on TLC’s Web site. “I didn’t realize this, obviously, until I saw it for myself … and even I was a bit frightened.”

The reality star says she’s glad her eight little ones were already tucked in and didn’t see the terrified look on her face, or they would have been spooked.

“Thank goodness my kids were in bed that night,” she writes. “I didn’t want them to watch just in case I was eliminated, but I had no idea I was inadvertently saving them from nightmares. All joking aside, I WAS scared to death!”

As it turned out, Gosselin was spared, and Charmed actress Shannen Doherty and her partner Mark Ballas got a ticket home instead.

“I know that I am still a contestant on DWTS solely because of my fans,” Gosselin writes. “I have met many of you recently, while grocery shopping, at Target or in airports. I have a few words to my fans: Thank you all for your support, love, obsessive votes and verbal encouragement. I am seriously blown away by each and every one of you!!!!”

Kate Gosselin Halted Practice for 90-Minute Mani-Pedi

Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani may be trying to get along after their tense, disastrous first two weeks on Dancing with the Stars — but it’s not easy, an insider says in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“Tony wants to practice all day, but Kate takes too many breaks,” the source says. On March 26, for instance, Dovolani had to twiddle his thumbs while Gosselin, 35, spent 90 minutes getting a mani-pedi; the reality mom also takes frequent time-outs to hit the tanning salon.

Adds the source: “Tony is getting tired of her attitude.”

In this new video, Us Weekly’s Senior Editor Bradley Jacobs breaks down some of the top feature stories in the new issue. In addition to the DWTS drama, there’s an in-depth look at Kim Kardashian’s recent split with Reggie Bush. “Kim is not crying or sad,” a pal says, adding that things didn’t feel right when they reunited last fall. “It wasn’t the same. She knew it was over.”

And, of course, more on Sandra Bullock and Jesse James: her determination to file for divorce — and retain an active role in the life of Sunny, her 6-year-old stepdaughter.

How Kate Gosselin’s Latest DWTS Rehearsal Is Going

After a rocky rehearsal spat in which Tony Dolovani quit on Kate Gosselin, he says things are going much better this week.

“I just got done with our first practice,” he Twittered Wednesday. “The Paso is going great :-)”

Despite two terrible performances (one judge called Gosselin, 35, a “nightmare” on the dance floor), she and Dolovani, 36, managed to survive the first round.

To make it to finals, he recently told Access Hollywood that she needs to trust him more.

She is slowly coming around.

“She’s starting to understand regardless of how tough I may be … I’m on her side,” he said. “I’m actually trying to make her look good … I’m not actually going against her. I’m not trying to cause any problems for her. All I’m trying to do is make her look good.”

Gosselin said that despite Dolovani being a “great” teacher, they are bound to clash occasionally.

“He has as much pressure as a teacher as I have as a student,” she told Access. “It’s a hard, hard thing.”

Tell Us: Will Kate and Tony last another week?
