FOX411.COM: After stumbling through the first broadcast of "Dancing with the Stars," Kate Gosselin is one nervous mother of eight. An ABC insider tells Fox411 that the reality TV mom is shaking in her high heels after this week's first show, in which she gave one of the program's worst performances. "Kate is terrified that she'll be the first person voted off and she is determined not to let that happen," a network source told Fox411. "She is a lot more focused than she was leading up to the first show. Kate finally realized how hard 'DWTS' is going to be for her and she needs [her partner] Toni [Davolini]'s help."
The source said Gosselin thought she could charm he way through the contest. Not anymore. "There was a time when she cared more about her nails and tanning and continuing her regular workouts. Now, it's all about the kids first and dancing second." Monday night's DWTS debut was almost more than Kate could bear, the source said. "Kate struggled to get through the show. She knew the producers planned for her to go towards the end of the show, but it only served to make her so much more nervous that by the time she was set to dance," said our insider. "She's trying to get her mindset prepared for next week. It is harder than she imagined." Our insider added that rumors of on-set tensions between Gosselin and the rest of the cast - especially Shannen Doherty - are overblown.
"[Kate]'s not unfriendly. She is quiet and keeps to herself and her small team," the source explained. "Kate and Shannen have talked and there's no rift - everyone is friendly and cordial onset. The competitors are trying to remember their routines so there isn't a lot of time for socializing." So how does Gosselin plan to turn her fortunes around on Monday? "She told [her partner] Toni she will listen to every single thing he says. She wants to stay in the competition." And if she can't improve her performance?"She will play the mom card," said our insider. "She hopes that her great support system of moms everywhere will help vote to keep her in."
Gosselin: 'Children liked my DWTS debut': Digitalspy.com
Kate Gosselin has revealed that her children were happy with her first performance on Dancing With The Stars. The reality star only scored 16 points from the judges after her Viennese waltz with partner Tony Dovolani on Monday's show.
However, Gosselin told Access Hollywood that the only thing her children didn't like was that the programme was on after their bedtime."They had nothing but good stuff to say, so that's all I'm worried about really," she explained. "Leah said, 'Mummy, why do you have to dance so late?'"
Gosselin also defended her decision to split her time between her home and training for the show in Los Angeles. "I'm up against the hard spot of tabloids painting me one way or another, and the whole experience of the last couple of years," she said. "So I'd like to show people that I'm a mum first... but it's okay to have fun sometimes." Kelly Osbourne recently urged viewers to give Gosselin "a break" for appearing on the show.
Jon Gosselin Dumped by 25-Year-Old Girlfriend: Us Weekly.com
Jon Gosselin is a single man once more. After less than two months together, Morgan Christie, 25, has broken up with Gosselin, 32, a source confirms to UsMagazine.com. "It's true," the insider says, explaining that Christie first initiated the split. "He's a mess and feels like a loser." Gosselin met the youthful-looking Christie, a law school student, while snowboarding in Utah. (He parted ways with former love Hailey Glassman in late December, when his divorce from Kate Gosselin was also finalized.)
Gosselin and Christie were inseparable during January's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, where they shocked partygoers. "Tons of PDA, holding hands, kissing," one witness told UsMagazine.com of the pair. "Anyone who saw him remarked how inappropriate it was." As Jon's ex-wife rehearsed for Dancing With the Stars in L.A. and at home in Wernersville, Penn., he had been staying at the "massive mansion" owned by his girlfriend's wealthy family. What about his eight kids back home? "Kate won't let Jon have extra custody," a source explained in a recent issue of Us Weekly. "She thinks they're better off with a nanny."
