Report: Gosselin Kids "Depressed" By Kate's Dancing with the Stars Appearance

by at . Comments

Kate Gosselin has officially gone Hollywood.

Eight kids in Wernersville, Pa., don't like that one bit. Why can't a mom have fun, Kate Gosselin asks in People magazine. Um, because you have eight freaking kids.

Not even three months after Kate and Jon Gosselin's divorce was finalized, their twins, 9, and sextuplets, 5, are struggling with even more upheaval.

Despite the makeshift studio they installed in her house, Dancing with the Stars still requires that Kate, its new cast member, be in L.A. at least three days a week.

The children are taking it hard. Minded by five nannies in her absence, the "depressed" kids "were asking, 'When is Mommy coming home?'" an insider reported.

In fact, as she trained and promoted her Dancing with the Stars stint (debuting March 22), Kate spent February 21-March 5 away from the kids.

Two days a week? Hardly.

Twins Cara and Maddy "seem depressed when Kate isn't around," another source says. Five-year old Aaden, Collin and Joel, meanwhile, "got into trouble at school."

It's a disturbing pattern, but their mom, who "wants to be a huge star," justifies her "work" with a surprising comparison - that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie do it!

"She frequently says Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have lots of kids and their parents are away for long periods, working to support them," a family insider said.

Don't the kids usually go with Brangelina, though? Just wondering. And where's Jon Gosselin? Morgan Christie can't part with his two-inch package a few times a week?
