Kate Gosselin: Dancing with Stars, in Basement

by at . Comments

As we reported yesterday afternoon and confirmed last night, Kate Gosselin has joined the Dancing with the Stars cast for the season starting March 22.

If you thought casting Kate as one of the "stars" was a stretch, think again. ABC feels she'll be such a ratings draw, they bent over backwards to get her.

For example, while the rest of the cast - announced last night after The Bachelor finale - practices in L.A., Kate will do so in her Pennsylvania basement.

Kate will be practicing her moves in a newly-converted dance studio at home so she can be near the eight kids she spawned with d-bag ex Jon Gosselin.

Dancing with the Stars is not only letting Kate slide with this unconventional arrangement, the show will be footing a hefty bill for the makeshift studio.

Are you excited to see Kate bust a move on DWTS?

Kate's partner, Tony Dovolani, will fly to Kate's home for practice. Kate will only be in L.A. two days per week, for the taping, until she gets voted off.

Which should be approximately one episode.

When she's cutting a rug on the west coast, her kids will stay in Pennsylvania with a nanny. Presumably not one by the name of Stephanie Santoro.

Kate apparently told Dancing with the Stars that this was the only way she'd do the show, "because she's a single mom trying to make money."

One with the right priorities ... kind of.

What is wrong with you people I think thats its great that Kate is on dancing with the stars. I bet she spends more time with her kids than most working mom`s. Lady's if you were on your own with eight kids wouldn't you try and do what ever you could to look after your kids. I think we all know that her loser Ex-husband will never have anything to offer them!! SO come on ladies lets stick together and keep Kate on for as long has we can.

WHEN I SAW HER NAME ON THE DANCING LIST I GAGGED. SHE IS A NOBODY BUT WANTS TO BE SOMEBODY. SHE SHOULD BE HOME TAKING CARE OF HER 8 CHILDREN INSTEAD OF THIS. AND SHE THINKS SHE IS GOING TO WIN, I DON'T THINK SO.

Dancing with the Stars??? I would title it Dancing with the Has-Beens. Dancing with Meryl Streep or George Clooney is considered Dancing with the stars in my opinion. Who are they going to have dance next season? Gary Coleman? How about they just take the cast of celebrity rehab and make them dance.
