Karina Smirnoff: I'd Love to Teach Kate Gosselin to Dance: USMagazine.com: Kate Gosselin isn't the easiest person to teach how to dance (her DWTS partner Tony Dolovani even quit on her once). But Karina Smirnoff tells UsMagazine.com she wouldn't mind instructing her.
"I think Kate is very real -- I love that about her!" she told Us Thursday at the WILDFOX Fall 2010 Collection celebration at NYC's 1OAK. "I respect the fact that she says what she thinks. I think a lot of people in the entertainment industry play the part instead of being who they really are. I think Kate did not play into that -- she remained herself. She's a mom, she's a business woman, and I respect that a lot. Maybe she wasn't the best dancer on Dancing With the Stars, but she tried her best and she was fun to watch. She did everything she could. Obviously, Dancing With the Stars is very demanding because of the schedule and you have such a limited amount of time to learn everything.
Smirnoff's tip for the mom-of-eight, 35? "If she wants to continue dancing she should continue to dance with her feelings and emotions," she told Us. "She is a very deep woman, and she has a lot of emotional education in her so let that come out in the dance moves." The reality mom is returning to the dance floor for the season finale on May 24 and 25.
