DWTS Judge: Kate Gosselin Is “Crap”

Dancing With the Stars judge Bruno Tonioli has even harsher words for Kate Gosselin.

“Kate is pretty dreadful,” he said Wednesday on Lopez Tonight. “She’s crap — but in a nice way. She is entertaining. People like disaster movies. We’ve got our own disaster movie there everyday. 2012 is nothing compared to the catastrophe she produces.”

But he praised Gosselin, 35, for being “a tough cookie. She gets it in the face, she comes back and she tries to get better.”

Sadly, he added, “it doesn’t really work.”

(He isn’t hard on all the contestants, however. Though he initially thought Pamela Anderson was “going to be terrible,” he said she “actually comes out and delivers a performance full of content and she works very, very hard, and she is good at it.”)

Gosselin, who has survived two DWTS rounds so far despite disastrous dance routines, says in Thursday’s USA Today that she doesn’t think the judges have been fair. “But it’s their option to say what they’re going to say,” she says.

The mother of eight says she is extra appreciative of her fans. “The fact that people really support me and want the kids and I to do well … is flattering,” she says. “I never understood the importance of fans until we struggled and went through tough times.”

“She acts like a major celebrity,” a production source tells Us Weekly. It’s a joke with the cast, like, ‘Oh, look out — the bodyguard is watching!'”

She also hasn’t bothered getting to know any of the other contestants either. Says an insider, “When she is getting her hair done, she is on her BlackBerry the whole time… [she] is not making herself likable.”

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.”

Jon Gosselin sues Kate Gosselin for custody of their kids.

From TMZ:

Jon Gosselin has just filed legal papers formally asking a Pennsylvania judge for primary custody of the 8 kids he had with Kate Gosselin.

Jon also wants the child support order that is currently in place reviewed by the judge. Jon claims the arbitrator in the divorce “failed to take into consideration the numerous factors provided for by the law in PA.”

TMZ broke the story that Jon’s lawyer, Anthony F. List, feels Kate is an “absentee mom” now that she is in Hollywood on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Kate currently has primary custody and Jon is required to pay $20,000 a month in child support.

Here’s my opinion. Kate says she has to work to support her family. This is why she says she took the DWTS job – to support her family. My question is – how does $20,000 in child support NOT support her children? How much money does she need!? I think that she should have never gone on the show, she does seem like a fame-hungry person to me. If she was really worried about her kids welfare, she’d quit everything else – and just be with them, and live off the $20,000 checks she gets every month from Jon.

I think the 8 children should be given to the Duggar family, what’s 8 more kids? Imagine the ratings!

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!!!!”
