Shannen Doherty, Jake Pavelka and Erin Andrews all grew frustrated in rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars Monday, but only Kate Gosselin truly achieved diva status.

In footage taken during practice for last night's routine, Kate basically acted like a grating b!tch and told partner Tony Dovolani that he doesn't know how to teach.

Jon Gosselin can relate, Tony. He can totally relate.

Kate would later back off that remark, sort of, saying he simply doesn't "accommodate her learning style." Uh huh. Dovolani could only stare in utter disbelief.

Tony Dovolani attempts to not murder train Kate Gosselin.

The self-important reality mom and certified banshee continued to complain until Dovolani nearly hit his breaking point, where he storms out, proclaiming "I quit."

Once again, Jon can relate, man! You guys should call each other!

Kate "couldn't believe" he was so mad. Of course, being a professional dancer, Tony pulled himself together and eventually returned to practice, and they carried on.

You have to wonder, though, if he's secretly hoping they get eliminated tonight after putting up one of Monday's lowest scores, simply so he can stop talking to her.

Here's a clip of Kate's routine and pity party last night ...

Reality star, best-selling author, grating spouse and mother of eight Kate Gosselin is 35 today. Happy birthday to the reverse mulleted pride of the Keystone State!

It's difficult to believe that less than a year ago, Kate was merely half of Jon & Kate Plus 8 ... or one tenth of it, if you want to look at it that way. You get the idea.

But ever since Jon Gosselin was outed as a cheater and their marriage imploded, Kate Gosselin not only became a household name, but one America rallied around.

Well, at least mostly.

Until it became clear that Jon was possibly the world's biggest douchebag, Kate had her share of critics as well. In any case, she's moved on to bigger, better stuff.

And we're not even talkin' about his two-inch package ... OH, SNAP!

Jon & Kate Plus 8 is a thing of the past, but Kate has moved on to Dancing with the Stars. She stank up the joint last week, but goes for redemption tomorrow.

Love her or hate her, she's become a staple of the celebrity gossip world. In honor of her special day today, click to enlarge some Kate Gosselin pictures below ...

In case you missed her debut performance on Monday's Dancing with the Stars season premiere, to put it delicately, Kate Gosselin should not quit her day job.

We have no idea what that is, but you get the point.

Kate's Viennese waltz was a tad stiff would be an understatement. It's awkward just watching this. Just the same, Kate has several things going for her:

  1. There were no eliminations this week
  2. She is new to this and can't get worse
  3. She's getting paid, unlike Jon Gosselin
  4. She's doing well in our poll (see below)

Check out Kate's Dancing with the Stars debut and the judges' reaction. Sounds like she better be hitting that makeshift basement studio harder than ever ...

Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?

Despite not being actual celebrities, and only gaining their fame through other reality shows as themselves, Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka are among the bigger names on this season of Dancing with the Stars, premiering tonight on ABC.

Kate has at least one fan pulling for her, too.

"Just met Kate Gosselin. Super nice!" The Bachelor star Twittered in typical lame, upbeat fashion. "I'm impressed the negative media hasn't affected her spirit."

Jake Pavelka continued his gushing over her: "Kate's a great person. I was happy to see her having fun with Tony [Dovolani], her dance partner," he Tweeted.

Of his partner Chelsie Hightower, Jake said: "Just finished almost 7hr practice. She kicked my butt, elbowed my eye and put me through the ringer! Felt Great!"

Which couple will advance farther on Dancing with the Stars?

Good to hear, Jake. Coming down to the wire, he writes: "It's crunch time now... Im getting an orangy colored spray tan. For camera purposes of course. LOL!"

LOL is right.

Pavelka's mom and dad are in Los Angeles to support his dance debut, and they're spending some quality time with his chosen Bachelor fiancee, Vienna Girardi.

"Had dinner at Asia de cuba with Jake's parents. Such amazing food," Girardi Twittered Sunday, adding that she and Jake are officially living together in L.A. "We moved in last night to our apartment. Love the area. Hate the traffic."

Jake, Kate, Erin Andrews, Chad Ochocinco, Buzz Aldrin and the rest of DWTS' Season 10 cast will cut a rug this evening on the hit show's opening night.

Despite the dubious reasons for Kate Gosselin becoming a household name, she's a bona fide celebrity now, and will compete on Dancing with the Stars Season 10!

Like fellow contestant Jake Pavelka, Kate is only famous for being on another TV show, and for the assorted celebrity gossip stories that followed in her personal life.

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.

Kate Gosselin Cleavage

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?

Kate Gosselin is out for Dancing with the Stars glory. But regardless of whether she can shock the world and win, she's determined to have a blast trying.

“I really want to win. It’s just that the dancing part is getting in the way of winning,” she says. “In my mind, I’m winning. In my actions, not so much.”

The spirit willing, the flesh weak. But Kate says that no matter how long she lasts on DWTS, the important thing is that she does her best and has fun.

“If I last two weeks on the show, I’ve shown my kids that hard work and perseverance pays off,” says Gosselin, who'll be partnered with Tony Dovolani.

“And if I don’t win, then at the very least I’ve shown them that you don’t always have to come in first. You just have to do your best, keep on trying.”

Kate Gosselin, Long Hair

Can Kate Gosselin make a run at the Dancing title?

As for her critics who say she can't balance fame and raising the eight children she shares with former husband Jon Gosselin, Kate asks "why can't a mom have fun?"

Truly, a question for the ages.

When people say that she's a bad mom, apparently this "destroys" Kate. Somewhere, Jon is screaming "You're a bad mom, you're a bad mom, you're a bad mom!"

Just kidding. He said he wishes Kate luck on the program. Whether he means that is another story, but at least he's putting on a good face publicly ... this moment.

In other news, dude's package is supposedly really small.

As she readies for her debut on Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin has a big decision to make. No, not whether to hire Stephanie Santoro to watch the kids.

Stylist Ted Gibson is giving her hair a new look ... but what kind?

Rumor has it that when Kate hits up the salon today, she’ll be back to her famous short 'do. But only on a temporary basis while her new longer hair is readied.

“She’ll have a new hairdo tomorrow because we’re taking out [her hair extensions] and we’re not putting them back in until Thursday," Gibson dished recently.

“We’re actually doing three different shades, a caramel, a beige blond and a bit of a lighter blonde ... The extensions will last the whole time she’s on the show.”

What's Kate Gosselin's best hairstyle?

She is far from the most seasoned contender on Dancing with the Stars, but Kate Gosselin is already popular with the cast and has tons of fans pulling for her.

Even Jon Gosselin says he's on Team Kate.

Now that's saying something. The previous time he was aligned with that woman, dude ended up with eight kids, a midlife crisis at 32 and fat child support payments.

"Congratulations to Kate for joining the new season of DWTS. I am thrilled for her. She has my support and vote," the douchebag wrote on Twitter, diplomatically.

Apparently in a peacemaking mood (Morgan Christie must have put out), Jon added, "Here is to 2010 for new beginnings and leaving the past mistakes in 2009."

  • Kate Rehearsing
  • Getting Smoked

Amazing these two didn't work out.

That was really nice of Jon, but if Hailey Glassman has taught us anything, it's that his Johnson is two inches long you can't always take what he says at face value.

A source close to the infamous father says that "Jon's extremely angry because doing Dancing with the Stars will keep [Kate] away from their children for days."

Moreover, "she still won't let him have extra custody ... nannies will watch them instead." At least that leaves more time for a Jon Gosselin nude Playgirl shoot.

Jon's rep insisted that the source is bogus, and that no matter what people say, "He's happy for her. She's part of his family and he supports her 100 percent."

Who sucks more?

Kate Gosselin is fitting in nicely on Dancing With the Stars, according to reports. Its cast members apparently never watched her on Jon & Kate Plus 8.

On Tuesday, the reality-mom turned amateur dancer met with her Dancing With the Stars rivals in a Hollywood studio for a promotional photo shoot.

Gosselin and Dovolani

"Kate was so nice," a set source tells Us Weekly. "Everyone loved her. She was funny, cordial and accommodating." Adds the insider: "It was a surprise!"

The star's dancing partner, Tony Dovolani, agrees. Following their Good Morning America visit Tuesday, he Tweeted, "Kate and I are getting along great."

"She is [an amazing] Mom and it looks like she is going to become a great dancer too! Kate and I are having a blast today. [We] had a nice long day of photo shoots and title shoots and I think both of us are ready to just pass out lol."

LOL, indeed.

Will Kate Gosselin hold her own on Dancing with the Stars?

Kate has her work cut out against the likes of Chad Ochocinco, Erin Andrews, Damian Whitewood and Jake Pavelka. But she's riding a wave of confidence.

Monday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Gosselin said she "can't dance," but nevertheless "I'm gonna win." One strategy: employ her eight kids to vote for her.

Dovolani plans to travel with her to her Wernersville, Pa. home and rehearse at a "local studio" or in the basement studio DWTS had made for Kate.

Gosselin praises Dovolani as "a very positive person. Even when I mess up really, really bad - which is a lot - he still has something positive to say."

Unlike Kate on Jon & Kate Plus 8. She basically cut Jon's nuts off every single week. Speaking of Jon, how about that pic Hailey Glassman posted!
