Will Kate Gosselin Survive This Week With The Tango? "Im Not A Quitter"
Kate Gosselin is a busy woman these days. She's going back and forth between Pennsylvania and Los Angeles, trying to raise her eight children, putting out a new book, getting ready for a new television series, and trying to learn dances to perform on Dancing With The Stars. Later tonight, we will see her perform a tango with her partner. Over the weekend, she was seen out in Pennsylvania. She needed to get her nails done. That was her last stop before jumping on a plane to be in Los Angeles for today's show. As for the custody suit with her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin - that is still making news. Kate's attorney still claims that Jon's case is full of holes, and he is trying to get it tossed out of court completely. Her attorney has stated the following: "There is no 'Jon Gosselin' exception to the Pennsylvania [law]." TMZ has the full set of legal documents filed by Jon Gosselin here. What do you think? Should his case be thrown out? Are you rooting for Kate on Dancing With The Stars this week?
Kate Gosselin's 'difficult' struggle balancing work and motherhood: 'It's tough, but I won't quit': NYDailyNews.com
Kate Gosselin gives a whole new meaning to working mom. In between balancing her stint on "Dancing with the Stars," being a mother to eight children and dealing with a custody battle with her ex-husband, the frazzled reality star says this time in her life has been "very difficult."
"I can't put my life aside and dance for six hours a day," Gosselin, 35, told E! Online from a New York dance studio. "It's not my lack of ability, but lack of presence. I struggle with this every day." She added, "I have determination. I will not quit! It's tough, but I am not a quitter."And for the reality mom, that means not giving up despite the harsh criticism she receives every week from the "DWTS" judges. "I take just their constructive criticism parts. I'm pretty used to taking criticism in general. I have to feel good about the dance and myself," said Gosselin, whose new TLC show "Twist of Kate" was announced on Thursday. Her children also have positive thoughts about her performances, despite not comprehending her recent paso doble routine to Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi.""They didn't understand the storyline, but they understand who the paparazzi are," she said, adding that they don't always get to watch her live on the show. "The kids fall asleep before I get to dance. One child asked me, 'Can you please dance earlier?'" She continued, "They worry about what I look like. They say Tony looks good. They say I look beautiful." In an effort to ease her nerves and work around her hectic schedule, Gosselin's dance partner, Tony Dovolani, said he is trying "everything in my arsenal."
"A dance teacher needs to understand the psyche and bring out the best in the student. I strongly believe in her," he told E! "The very first words she said on our show was, 'I want to win.' I told her today that I still see the possibility of her winning."
