'Dancing with the Star's'….Kate sent home…..She really had no business being there…

She told us she couldn’t dance from the jump….

And you know something?

She was right…..

But she sure can cry and alienate people…those are her best ‘brands’ and she’s good at them…..

Kate Gosselin — who consistently bombed during her five-week run on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars— says she had a hunch she and partner Tony Dolovani would be eliminated on Tuesday’s show.

Despite being a fan fave, they had the lowest judges’ score, 15, on Monday’s show.

“I had a gut feeling and there was nothing making that gut feeling go away,” the reality mom, 35, toldEntertainment Tonight after getting the boot. “Everyone deserves to move on, and I had a good run and am really thankful for the opportunity

Though she claims she is OK leaving, her eight children “will be upset, definitely,” she said. “They will be shattered, in fact.” She said she is not “letting them watch” her elimination episode, so “they’ll be OK. They’ll be glad to have me back. I’m thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing.”

She said late on Jimmy Kimmel\’s show….

She echoed those sentiments later in the night on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying she was “not surprised” she got the boot.

Before the season began, she vowed to Kimmel that she was going “to win” the show. When he called her out for the remark after her elimination, she replied, “I always believe what I say … but then, like, that dancing stuff started.”

Added the mom, “To be very, very honest, if I didn’t have, as Tony says, three other lives going on then I probably could’ve done better.”

“It was a great adventure, it was a great ride,” she said on ABC’s Good Morning AmericaWednesday.

After getting voted off, “I was very upset,” she said. “I wanted to learn more, do more. At the same time, I knew it was my day yesterday.

No Playboy for Kate……

Kate Gosselin is the second Gosselin rejected from the porno business.

This story a win – win for both Kate and Hugh Heftener….

She’s already said she wouldn’t do the magazine…..and Heftner gets his Magazine in the headlines……

I must say…..for a woman who’s had five kids at once…..

She looks damn good…….

She does need to work on the attitude thing though…….

(The Frisky) — Kate Gosselin has had some tough blows this year and Hugh Hefner has dealt her another one.

When asked if there was any possibility that Momzilla would grace the glossy covers of Playboy, Hef said, “No! No!” And the original playboy added insult to injury by suggesting he doesn’t even know why she’s on “Dancing with the Stars.”

He explained, “I don’t think she’s a celebrity.” She is the second Gosselin rejected from the porno business. It must hurt to hear that no one wants to check out your goody basket.

Note.….the CNN caption for the above picture aludes to being in Playboy as being in the ‘porno’ business?  Say what???

A whole lot of famous females have done the Playboy cover and spreads with out showing much their , ah……assets…..

She’s still in next to last place…but she seems to be finally having fun…..

ABC’s link for the show……

Dancing with the Stars 2010 week four, dubbed “passion night” by co-hosts Brooke Burke and Tom Bergeron, aired Monday evening on ABC. This latest installment of DWTS season 10 featured the nine remaining celebrity/professional couples as they tackled either the precise Tango or the sexy Rumba. The evening’s action included a dramatic new twist as each couple received two sets of scores – one for artistic merit, the other, technical. In addition, each couple was required to include three specific elements in their performances. Here’s how Dancing with the Stars 2010 week four went down, including the 4-1-1 on Kate Gosselin’s “mini breakthrough”, Derek Hough’s love hand and Pamela Anderson’s sizzling Rumba.

Up first in the ballroom were ESPN’s Erin Andrews and the delicious (oh my!) Maksim Chmerkovskiy. During rehearsals for their Tango, Erin shared her fear of head judge Len Goodman’s criticism. Despite suffereing from back pain, the blonde sports correspondent vowed to continue on with Dancing with the Stars 2010.

On to Kate’s dancing…..

Dancing with the Stars 2010 continued on with the season’s love her or hate her contestant: Kate Gosselin. During rehearsals, her partner Tony Dovolani listened to Kate as she stressed over the difficulties in her life, and then encouraged her to get to work so he (ex Jon) won’t “win”.

Kate was stiff, emotionless and robotic at the start of her routine and I thought ‘oh ugh, not again!’. But things changed over the course of the dance – she may have even cracked a smile at one point! I thought her Tango marked a huge improvement over last week’s horrifying (and not in a good way) Paso Doble. Bruno called it “a mini breakthrough” and said “at moments I actually believed you were dancing” but still called the technique “really really bad”. Carrie Ann praised her for her “determination”. Len addressed Tony first, noting that he’s done a good job with Kate in getting her to produce “her best dance so far”. Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani’s Dancing with the Stars 2010 week four results: Technical – 4, 5, 5 = 14 and Performance – 6, 6, 6 = 18. 14 + 18 = 32

Kate…..Kate….Kate…..Everywhere you go!……

Kate Gosslin….has made sure that her ‘brand’ is alive and well…..

1270584661_cover-290.jpg

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!'”

PHOTOS: What you didn’t see on Monday’s DWTS

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 husbandJon. (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.

PHOTOS: Stars caught cheating

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.

VIDEO: Look back on Kate’s diva DWTS moments

Note….The Dog thinks Jon Gosselin’s new attempts to label his wife an unfit mother are pure Bull …….

While she may not get along with too many peiople….The Dog applauds her going to work….sometyhing Jon Gosselin seems to forgotten how to do……

Update…..

Jimmy Fallon checks in on Kate’s performance…..

.Jimmy Fallon gave his own take on Kate Gosselin's performance on 'Dancing with the Stars.'

Imitation may not always be the sincerest form of flattery – at least in Kate Gosselin‘s case.

The tabloid target mom got a dose of reality Tuesday night when “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon took a jab at her less-than-stellar “Dancing with the Stars” performance this week.

“I was attacked by the paparazzi again this morning,” Fallon somberly told his audience. “I’m pretty upset about it. I think my feelings can be best expressed in dance.”

As the show’s house band, The Roots, began playing Lady Gaga‘s “Paparazzi,” Fallon donned a long, blond ponytail and a red and black top, similar to what Gosselin wore on the dance competition program Monday night.

Shannen Doherty and Mark Balla gone from “Dancing With The Stars”…..and a Kate moment…..

“Dancing for her father” couldn’t save former Beverly Hills, 90210 baddie Shannen Doherty from the ballroom guillotine during the first elimination show of the 10th season of Dancing With The Stars. Pamela Anderson and partner Damian Whitewood were part of the bottom three couples, along with Kate Gosselin and Tony “I Quit” Dovolani…….

Kate Gosselin will change her ‘DO’ for her ‘Dancing with the Star’s’ debut…..

Kate Gosselin endured a 20-hour hair makeover to achieve her new look.

No problem…her $7,000 8 hour experiment with extensions was a freebie…..

And she didn’t like them anyways…..

That’s right, Kate Gosselin‘s extensions are coming out.

But that doesn’t quite mean the former reality star will go back to the trademark backwards mullet that she has become best known for.

Celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson told RadarOnline.com that he’s taking Gosselin’s $7,000 extensions out on Wednesday, and though she’ll have her short hair back for the day, he’s giving her a new ‘do on Thursday.

“We’ll be doing color, we’ll be doing extensions, we’ll be getting her ready for her premiere on ‘Dancing With the Stars!'” Gibson said, adding that the 34-year-old mother of eight’s new locks will include a few different shades of blond. “The extensions will last through the whole time she’s on the show.”

Gosselin has already begun rehearsing for the hit ABC show, which premieres March 22nd.

According to Gibson, she’s got a shot at winning the competition.

“I think she has a good chance, I think people love to watch her, I think she’s interesting,” he told Radar. “When she was here last week she said she been trying really, really hard at dancing and she doesn’t feel like she’s necessarily a dancer but I think she’s having a good time and that’s going to show, that she’s having a good time.”
