Kate Gosselin to dance the story of her marriage, tries to befriend Pamela Anderson

Kate Gosselin is still on Dancing with The Stars despite, or perhaps because of, the fact that she’s an insufferable harpy with two left feet. Earlier this week we saw footage of Kate arguing with her partner, Tony Dovolani, who got fed up with Kate’s whining and constant complaining during rehearsal and walked out, saying he quit. Dovolani eventually came back and Kate later compared the process of getting along with her dancer instructor to communicating in marriage. Then we heard that Kate disliked Tony so much she tried to get him fired. How did this woman ever hold down a job where she had a supervisor? Is she capable of taking direction at all, or is she so determined to be the one in charge that she’ll berate, nitpick and scheme in order to call the shots even when she has no idea what she’s doing?

Kate knows why she’s famous and she knows that people aren’t voting for her because she can dance at all. She’s famous for splitting with her lazy cheating husband and she’s going to remind us of that next week on Dancing With The Stars. Kate says her dance will have a “Kate and Jon” theme next week and will tell “my story over the past two years.” It doesn’t matter if she’s successful at conveying marital discord and the emasculation of her male partner. All she has to do is get people talking about her and voting for her to come back and flail around some more:

While Jon himself is not actually going to grace the DWTS stage, we will be getting the next best (or worst?) thing: a Jon-and-Kate-themed dance for week three! Tony will be channeling Jon G. (lucky Jon!) as Kate portrays herself (who else?) in next week’s storytelling assignment.

Let that sink in for a moment: Kate will be transforming her recent tabloid troubles into a high-stepping dance routine.

“It’s my story over the past two years,” Kate tells us of the dance. “We’re very, very excited.”

And there’s only one word to describe such a dance.

“Dramatic,” says Kate. To which Tony replies, “Lots of drama.” To which Kate adds a little more emphasis with an, “Oh my gosh, so much drama.”

Whew! So listen, guys, we think it’s going to be dramatic in case you missed the memo.

We kid, because clearly you DWTS fans either (a) love Kate and don’t want to see her leave the show or (b) love watching Kate humiliate herself on national TV and don’t want to see her leave the show, because she and Tony managed to stick around after some pretty dire scores.

“My dancing has a lot of work to do, and I’m the first to admit it. I’m not a quitter, I won’t quit on this. I want to finish the dance,” so says Kate. “The frustrating thing for me is I can do it so well in practice that even I’m like, Wow! Did I just do that? Then I come out here and I’m like, Whaaa!”

[From E! Online]

Life & Style has a related story about Kate trying to glom on to fellow contestant Pamela Anderson, who is said to be annoyed with Kate and “laughing at her behind her back.”

The ballroom is turning into a battleground for superstar Pamela Anderson and reality-TV mom Kate Gosselin on Dancing With the Stars! “Pam can’t stand Kate,” a show insider reveals to Life & Style. “Kate’s like a little dog around her, latching onto her.” The reason? Apparently Kate thinks aligning herself with Pam will give her more exposure, says the insider: “Kate thinks it will help her career, so she’s trying to be all palsy-walsy with Pam. Kate thinks they have a lot in common because their private lives have been fodder for years and they’ve both had reality shows. But Pam’s laughing at her behind her back.”

[From Life & Style, received via e-mail]

So Kate is both shoving her tabloid mess into our faces while trying to suck up to Pamela Anderson behind the scenes. Anderson was in the bottom two last week and she can only work the half-dressed hoochie mama angle for so long. By working her “drama” Kate might be the one who’s laughing at the end.

    Not sure Im buying the story about Kate w/Pam, wouldnt make sense since Pam doesnt get alot of positive attention lately. I would think she’s too much of a ‘has-been’ to help anyone’s career unless it was in the sex/stripper industry, just cant see Kate associating with that. Plus Pam’s obviously on so many meds I doubt she can tell who is really looking at her. Maybe Kate is just trying to figure out wtf Pam is on so she can score some…lol

  2. Marjalane says:

    I’m going to have nightmares about that picture of Kate and Tony! Yikes. They both look like scary gypsy circus people.

  3. Pont Neuf says:

    I would like to ask one question, please. Who the hell is responsible for making Kate and Jon Gosselin famous? The people responsible for such a crime against culture in particular, and our collective intelligences in general, deserves to be hanged, drawn and quartered.

    But what is even more baffling is the fact that there are people who actually follow them!!! WHO ARE THESE *insane* PEOPLE?!?! Their reality show was awful (I only watched it once, and had more than enough for the rest of my life, thank you very much), they are two of the least agreeable individuals I have ever had the displeasure of watching on TV, and they are awful at everything they do… Obviously, they must have something that many people find appealing. I just have to wonder, what is it?

    As for Ms Anderson, I do find her strangely endearing in the show. Yes, she is an empty-headed strumpet whose only talent is to play er, an empty-headed strumpet, but she also seems sweet and doesn’t mind laughing at herself from time to time, which is refreshing. I just have to wonder why women (i.e. the majority of voters), prefer a bitter, horrid, nasty, arrogant and idiotic witch like Kate to an inoffensive tart like Pam.

  4. Feebee says:

    “Dramatic,” says Kate. To which Tony replies, “Lots of drama.” To which Kate adds a little more emphasis with an, “Oh my gosh, so much drama.”

    That pretty much sums Kate up… too much drama and always having to get the last word.

    God, could you imagine her as a maternity nurse? I see birthing plans flying out the window as she tells her patients how it’s going to go down.

    How in hell are they going to tell Kate’s story in dance? The costumers will have their work cut out for them, she’ll probably want to be in something angelic.

    I’m hoping Pam’s bottom two appearance was a blip. I’m enjoying her performances.

  5. Kate says:

    I think #3 has a great point… Pam really only has one facet of her personality, but isn’t it better than Kate’s one facet? What’s wrong with us as a nation when we prefer a drama queen bitch to a relatively harmless, mostly washed up bimbo?

  6. OXA says:

    Kart Go$$elin would pal up with the Unibomber if it would get her more camera time.

  7. Justalark says:

    Please tell me this is an APRIL FOOL’S DAY joke…

  8. Judy says:

    So who’s playing the part of the bodyguard in this little dance drama? (And I agree with Pont Neuf.)

  9. Laurie says:

    Kate puts down and makes fun of Jon every chance she can – but then she also won’t leave the guy alone when it suits her media grabbing ways!! This doesn’t sound very Clean Slate of Kate…. Are there no other stories in her life she can tell?!!!!

  10. Linda says:

    Please – please – please – I beg people – do not vote for this vile woman – I so want her off this show! I really love this show, but I’m not sure I can take another week with her on it. I wish she would crawl back into the hole she came out of….be gone you evil woman…be gone!

    BTW – Jon actually did not “cheat” on Kate – she had kicked him to the curb and then he started stepping out with any woman that would have him…

  11. Judy says:

    @Linda: “BTW – Jon actually did not “cheat” on Kate – she had kicked him to the curb and then he started stepping out with any woman that would have him…”.

    THANK YOU. I am SO SICK of people who don’t have their facts straight, and CB you should know better than to feed that fallacy.

  12. canadianchick says:

    @Pont Neuf, ditto.

    Yes, this better be an April Fools joke or I a resigning from the human race. Or maybe from tv watching.

  13. Obvious says:

    I’m so going to go vote for Pam until the end of time. An unoffensive tart is well unoffensive (ok ok i know it sounded much better in my head)

    however watching Kate be a beetch is still slightly entertaining. I say we get octomom up here. make her actually do something for a change.

  14. TaylorB says:

    Pont Neuf,

    I have feeling that people are keeping Kate on in a ‘Vote for the Worst’ kinda way (think Sanjaya), and heavens knows the producers want to keep her on for ratings. Sort of like how people watch the American Idol auditions only to laugh at the really awful ones. That is the only reason I can come up with as to why she is still on that show. Don’t lose your faith in humanity just yet, a joke can only go so far. ;-)

  15. Linda says:

    Part of the appeal with DWTS is the dancing and watching how these people get better and better – I’d rather watch Pam week after week (and her hunky partner) then to have to put up with Kate!

  16. Maritza says:

    Can’t wait to see with what dance routine Tony will come up with although Kate will never do justice to his choreography. It seems to me that she is getting worse and worse every week. The woman is getting on my nerves!

  17. Jen says:

    Both her routines to date have been the story of her last two years – disastrous and annoying and painful to watch.

  18. GOMO1313 says:

    I personally think, or more less do not trust this voting process. They are keeping Kate on for the publicity, bad as it is, but ratings are ratings.She is not popular and can’t dance. Why don’t they show the total votes received and verify the results? They can’t can they! Kate will shine on for at least 4 more shows and I’m sure they will be bringing in the children for publicity too. I like others will not watch anymore!

  19. amanda says:

    I can’t think of anything more classless and tasteless than dancing the story of her and Jon. First of all, the idea is stupid. Doesn’t this woman ever want to move ON from that debacle and start a new chapter in her life? Second, how confusing for her children who are most likely watching. Third, how annoying would it be to be Jon and your ex-wife is “dancing your story” in front of millions of viewers and you don’t get to have your side represented. God, I hate Kate. Hate!

  20. Anastasia says:

    BOYCOTT. Next!

  21. Cinderella says:

    Maybe Tony will drop her like TLC did.

  22. DoMaJoReMc says:

    OK, anyone that knows me will vouch for the fact that I am, in no way, a huge fan of Jon Gosselin. I don’t agree with some of the things he has done. I know TLC came down hard on him to keep him in their pocket, to not do any public appearances without their consent. I get that. Breach of contract, bla, bla, bla.

    I don’t understand why it is OK to have KHATE flitting around on every media blitz she can find, and cry poor me, and cry poverty, etc. I KNOW she has to be doing SOMETHING with SOMEONE at TLC. Come on, let’s be real. She is no more enticing to TV than Jon. At least while watching Jon & Kate plus 8, I could see for my own eyes the kind of personal HELL this B!TCH put him through. Can you even imagine KHATE taking care of one of the kid’s constipation problems? (I think it was Collin) He (Jon) has such a relaxed, down to earth relationship with the kids. Anytime the kids had to be bundled up to go outside in the snow, Jon did all that. This is just one example of how he did much more than KHATE ever did. So what, she was with them during the day (along with her nannies and other help), but Jon was actually the one that showed the kids some love and affection. Please keep in mind, people, AGAIN, I am not Jon’s #1 fan. I just have to speak on what I have seen.

    Now, to (finally) get to my point, why is it OK for KHATE to bring out the ‘drama’ of HER last year or so, when Jon was also a part of it? Shouldn’t she be getting the OK from Jon, seeing as how he is going to be portrayed in (I’m sure) a bad light? (He did that all by himself!)

    This whole week I have been pretty sick with pneumonia-like symptoms, but when KHATE was allowed to go on to continue to dance, yet, another week, I let out the hugest NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! that you could possibly imagine. (Sorry to all my neighbors who may have heard my outburst!) I think if Mark had not been hurt, he and Shannon would have been going on to next week. This just goes to show that, I think, the votes are definitely rigged. ABC probably figured, instead of chucking KHATE, they should just chuck Shannon, so that she wouldn’t have to re-train with another partner. I think everyone expected Shannon to be the big DIVA on the show, but alas, KHATE did not let us down on that one. Shannon was so awesome in her attitude, and she has definitely grown up since her antics of her 90210 days. KHATE should learn from Shannon.

    I am going to continue to vote for ANYONE but KHATE, and I TOTALLY agree with GOMO1313 about the voting process. ABC will keep KHATE for ratings purposes, but isn’t this what the VIEWERS want? Isn’t that why we are ‘allowed’ to vote?

    On the other topic, I think Pam has been such a delight, insofar as her ability to laugh at herself. C’mon, people, she is spoofing herself. How much more down to earth can a person be, but to laugh along with everyone who laughs at her? She is doing great and I loved her channeling Marilyn Monroe. (And I also loved the comment about the Kennedys coming in by the busloads…HaHa!)


    My secret, Cinderella, was that Tony would drop her, as well, but that would not look good for him, as the professional. Too bad, because that would be the BALLS! ;-)

  23. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I would love to hear Tony’s wife’s take on this whole thing!!!

    THAT would be worth hearing!

  24. boo says:

    Jon didn’t start dating until a couple of months after Kate said the marriage was over so he was not cheating. I know lots of separated people that start to date before the divorce is final.

  25. westender says:

    What I think will be interesting is what Tony will have to say about Kate when and if they are booted off? He must being getting paid big bucks or got some bonus to keep dancing with her

  26. Kurt Nigbor says:

    Wow, watching Kate swing around the dance floor….well, it was like watching someone dance with a little pig, didn’t it?

  27. lin234 says:

    DoMaJoReMc- lol agreed.

    boo- That little detail always seems to not exist for Kate. That SHE was the one who ended the marriage and didn’t want to go to counseling. Yet, she’s all over the media crying about how everyone has quit on her. UGH.

    She bitches at Tony for not teaching her the way that she learns and then cries about everyone quitting on poor lil ol’ her. Enough.
    I’ve never called in to vote before but I think I may do it to support that Evan guy. Can you only call once? How does that work? Do they charge you for calling? I’ll do it if this means that someone else will have one more vote than her.

  28. Judy says:

    Entertainment Tonight did a segment on Kate tonight and said that her “loyal” fans were keeping her in the race. Really? I’ve read almost every site and the “hate” Kate posts are about 20-1 to the “love” Kate ones.

  29. Anastasia says:

    The top myths about Kate:

    1. That she has to work to support the kids. She has enough money to stop working now, never work again, and they could live quite comfortably off the interest and $10K a month Jon is court-ordered to pay in child support. This is THE biggest myth perpetuated about her.

    2. That Jon isn’t paying child support. If he weren’t paying child support, Kate would have the courts ALL over his a** and everyone knows it. She’d put him UNDER the courthouse. He’d be in jail and it would be in the news, guarantee it. Her little hesitations when asked about Jon paying is just her way of planting a seed of doubt when the truth is that he is paying it. How nasty of her.

    3. That she’s a victim. She’s not a victim. She’s a professional manipulator. She’s very good at twisting situations to make it seem as if she is the one who has been wronged, while steamrolling over everything in sight.

    4. That everything she does is for her kids. Actions speak louder than words. If she was so concerned about her kids, she’d be spending a hell of a lot more time with them than she does now, with all her jetting around. Remember myth #1: she doesn’t have to be on TV to support them. Girlfriend is SET. They ride a bus two hours a day, five days a week to go to a private, elite, expensive school very far from their home when they could go to any number of good private schools closer to their home. They are cared for by nannies. Back when the show was on, I was disgusted by how completely annoyed she was by the kids all the time. She griped and b*tched about them constantly. It’s like they were just a pain in the butt to her. The biggest emotional reaction they got from her was when they got dirty. A control freak rarely makes a loving mother.

    5. That she’s somehow talented or interesting. I’ve yet to find anything interesting about this woman. And her only “talent” thus far was taking fertility drugs and having a total of eight kids. In fact, THEY’RE probably the most interesting thing about her and that’s got to kill her what with being a narcissist. But they’re not on TV anymore (thank goodness) and the older they get, the less interested the public will be in them (let’s face it, people love cute little kids–not so much gangly pre-teens).

    6. That while she was married to Jon, she HAD to be a controlling shrew because a) they had eight kids and b) he was so lazy and/or any combination of a and b. There’s never any justification for acting the way she did. Even IF he was a total lazy slob (and honestly I didn’t see much evidence of that–if anything, he did most everything while she bossed him around), there’s no excuse for verbally abusing the father of your children and being so incredibly ugly to your spouse. It was awful. She knew she could bully him and did. The end.

    Simply put, this woman is not a nice person at all. I might even go so far as to call her despicable. She’s become hooked on the attention and perks and money and wants MOREMOREMORE all while pretending it’s (cue sad serious face) for her KIDS now that she’s a (sad serious face!) SINGLE MOM.

    Boo hoo hoo. A lot of single moms don’t have a nursing career they could fall back on, millions in the bank, a million dollar house and nannies, cooks and housekeepers, $35,000 to spend on a total body makeover, etc etc.

    I will never understand anyone falling for the idea that she’s just a sympathetic struggling single mom with only good motives.

    If this is an April Fool’s Day joke, it’s the best April Fool’s Day joke – ever!

  31. Judy says:

    Thank you Anastasia. That was excellent. Oh, and there’s the bodyguard–sick of her holier-than-thou crap–and she did NOT write those books.

  32. DoMaJoReMc says:


    For all those KHATE lovers (?ugh) please respond, if you think you can! Bet you can’t, at least not with credibility…

  33. boo says:

    Anastasia – Very true and very well said. I watched a handful of the JK&8 shows and was always so impressed with Jon’s patience.

    Kate treats Jon like $hit and I can’t wait for it to come back and bite her flat a$$.

  34. BW says:

    lin234, just get on your cell phone right after DWTS, and type whatever number DWTS assigns at the end of the show to the couple(s) you want to vote for, i.e., 3407, etc., in the “phone number” section on your cell phone. Then, go to the “message” area on your cell phone and just type VOTE, then click over to your phone numbers and click on the number of the couple you just put in, and send it. It will send you a text back to tell you how many votes you have left. You can get on the DWTS site and vote on the computer, too. You need to log in, get a password, etc. Either way, you can also vote for more than one couple, so you can put several numbers on your cell phone and just pick the number for the couple you want. And Anastasia . . . no way could I have said what you did so well. You are so right. Whew.
