Dancing with the Stars Cast Relieved to Be Free of Kate Gosselin, Diva-Like Demands

by at . Comments

Kate Gosselin got the boot from Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night.

The remaining dancers and cast collectively thought: It's about time.

The mother of eight caused drama before the show even premiered in March, acting like a diva during rehearsals and making crazy demands on set.

Crazy demands like crew members not being allowed to look at her. Seriously. So you can imagine the rejuvenated vibe now that she's finally gone.

"Everyone couldn't be more relieved," a source says ... but just wait 'til they have to deal with Rachel Uchitel. That'll pose a whole new set of issues. 

GOOD RIDDANCE, GOSSELIN: That's the cast and crew's message for Kate.

"We had to walk on eggshells. At least we don't have to worry about where our eyes can or can't drift off to now. Kate just thought that everyone was out to get her. That's why she had all of those crazy rules, like how she was to be approached."

There are two ways to look at this, of course.

Kate gets enormous attention, much of it negative, from mainstream and celebrity gossip press. This understandably gets to her, prompting a difficult attitude.

On the flip side, rather than being "out to get her," perhaps it's the media's role to point out what a dreadful human being she is when she leaves us no choice.

It's a celeb gossip chicken-egg scenario.

"[We] felt bad for the bad press she got," another Dancing with the Stars source dished. "But sometimes it was deserved!" Sums it up perfectly, if you ask us.

With Nicole Scherzinger, Pamela Anderson - the woman's got the booty and skillz - Evan Lysacek et al. going strong, the cast is pumped to get back to work.

Tell us: Are you sad Kate's gone from Dancing with the Stars?
