Len has called her dancing "dreadful."

Bruno has called her the super bitch from hell.

Tony Dovolani just wants her gone at any cost.

America won't oblige, however, at least not yet. Kate Gosselin's controversial stint on Dancing with the Stars continues Monday. Will it be her last performance?

Maybe, maybe not. But Mark Ballas, who was inexplicably eliminated first this season with Shannen Doherty, thinks er need to cut the reality mom some slack.

"She's really out of her element, thrown in the deep end," Ballas says. "I think she's doing a really good job, and I think people need to give her a break. I absolutely sympathize with her. She's never done this before. It's difficult."

This isn't to say he thinks Kate Gosselin is even remotely good, just that we should back off a little. Until she quits her non-stop whining, don't expect it.

As for who he likes to hoist the coveted disco ball come season's end, Mark is high on Jake Pavelka, Nicole Scherzinger, Evan Lysacek and Erin Andrews.

"I like Erin and Maks together," he said of Erin and partner / rumored beau Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "What they did with the blindfold was really creative."

Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?

Joanna Pacitti may have been disqualified from this season of American Idol.

But she's permitted into the bed of Mark Ballas any night of the week!

Indeed, the aspiring singer and the Dancing with the Stars professional have gone public with a relationship that reportedly began eight months ago.

The two most popular reality shows on the planet are colliding as Mark Ballas and Joanna Pacitti come out as a couple.

“She is the most supportive person in my life and she’s been great,” Ballas told People Magazine at yesterday's premiere of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. “We get to spend a lot of time together [and] we do pretty much everything together.”

Pacitti agrees.

“I think we have the perfect situation. We both get each other and understand schedules and even on a musical level, I’ve never met someone that’s so passionate about music…that’s what I live for so it’s amazing to be with someone who gets it.”

Ballas previously dated his former Dancing with the Stars partner, Sabrina Bryan.

"It's time to bring sexy back."

- Kim Kardashian on last night's Dancing with the Stars, promising a seductive Rumba

Close Up of Kim Kardashian

Here's the problem with Kim Kardashian on Dancing with the Stars this season: the giant-breasted reality star is trying too hard to make herself over for a mainstream audience.

Prior to performing the Rumba with Mark Ballas last night, Kim complained about how she loved her partner "like a brother... [so] it's gonna be really hard to amp up that sexual chemistry on the dance floor."

The tandem proceded to bring Robin Antin - founder of The Pussycat Dolls - on board to assist Kardashian with her sexiness during the routine.

Excuse us?!? Kim Kardashian, the same woman that took it from behind in her sex tape with Ray J and has posed nude in Playboy, needs help acting sexy? We don't buy it for a nanosecond.

As a result of this confused behavior, Kardashian and Ballas earned a measly 17 combined points from the judges last night. Here's a look at their routine:

Kim, you're a terrible actress.

Stop pretending as though shaking your hips and grinding your crotch comes unnaturally. These are your best talents. Use them.

With all the attention paid to Kim Kardashian on Dancing With the Stars this week, we've largely ignored one critical component of the hit TV competition:

Hunky male stars.

Without these guys below, the show would be nothing. Ladies love the likes of Derek Hough, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Mark Ballas. Tell us, Dancing fans ...

I need Booty 101.

Probably the last words we'd ever expect to hear from Kim Kardashian, with the exception of: "Ray J, turn that camera off and come do me!"

Tormented!

Still, Kim was worried last night about her booty-shaking abilities for the Mambo. Turned out she had reasons for concern.

Her and partner Mark Ballas only managed 18 total points for their version of the dance. Check out the performance now (set, hilariously, to "Baby Got Back"):

A variety of Kim Kardashian nude photos have put this reality TV star on the celebrity map.

However, it will be her appearance - and subsequent performance - on Dancing with the Stars that dictates whether or not this amateur sex tape star can become a true A-lister.

The seventh season of the reality competition kicks off on September 22, but here's your first chance to see Kim and partner Mark Ballas in a Dancing with the Stars promo. The latter won last year's trophy as the mentor of ice skater Krisi Yamaguchi.

From partnerting with a gold medalist to teaming up with a woman with large breasts, can Ballas do it again?

How far do you think Kim Kardashian and Mark Ballas will go on Dancing with the Stars?

With the seventh season premiere of Dancing with the Stars just a couple weeks ago, Kim Kardashian and Mark Ballas are getting serious.

Having to work on unique routines that take Kardashian's giant boobs and rear end into consideration, this duo is practicing around the clock.

Here's a shot of them following a recent session:

Sabrina Bryan is currently on the Dancing with the Stars tour without her man, but rest assured:

The Cheetah Girl will be home for Christmas to lend some lovin' to Mark Ballas; he's home recovering from surgery after dislocating his shoulder on the show's season finale last month.

"I brought him a little gift basket the night of his surgery of movies [and] his favorite candy... because it's hard to just have to sit there and not really be able to do much," Bryan told Us Weekly. "He's somebody who's active so much, so to actually just take a moment and just relax is a lot for him."

How adorable are these two?!? While it remains to be seen if Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough are actually a couple, there's little doubt that Bryan and Ballas have staying power.

Like Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, who also met on Dancing with the Stars, this pair is in it to win it.

There's no doubt Dancing with the Stars fans will see more of Mark Ballas and Sabrina Bryan this season. But for how long?

In each of the past four seasons, all of the couples have been asked back to do a short turn on the dance floor during the finale. Ballas claims the couple will enjoy more than the typical 10 seconds; they'll perform an entire paso doble or cha cha.

"She was voted off too early," Ballas told TV Guide. "She's great, she's lovely, and she was by far the best dancer. No one can take that away from her. So I want to come back to avenge her."

How romantic. And slightly frightening.

"People say she came too far too fast," Ballas added about his new love. "But in the beginning, when I first met her, she was clueless. She could stand with her knees bent and go "Yeah, yeah, boom, boom, hip hop.' But as far as having your feet turned out properly, your hair in a wonderful beehive hairdo and a ballroom gown with feathers at your feet? She didn't know how to do that. It's a totally different kettle of fish."

Perhaps Ballas should stick to dancing instead of metaphors. But we do hope he and Bryan get a chance to prove they belonged in the finals alongside Melanie Brown and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Fortunately, Mark and Sabrina have both signed on to join the third Dancing with the Stars national tour, which kicks off December 18th in Seattle.

"It means a lot to us to be able to carry on performing," said Ballas. "And I want to show Sabrina's full potential. I really wanted to show America what she could do. I know there was a lot more I could've pulled out of her if we had stayed in the competition. So I'm definitely going to be pulling out all the stops on the tour."

Now that Mark Ballas and Sabrina Bryan are officially a couple, they aren't holding anything back.

The Dancing with the Stars professional, fellow pro Derek Hough and their band Almost Amy took to the stage at Hollywood club Sugar last night.

Bryan stood in the front row... until Ballas dedicated the band's first number to "my beautiful Sabrina" and the Cheetah Girls member got on stage to shake what her mama gave her.

"Isn't he the cutest thing in the world," Bryan gushed to People magazine moments after Ballas presented her with a large bouquet of flowers.

"I think it's so cool that they are dating," Cameron Mathison said. "They are so cute together."

We couldn't agree more. And hope to see Sabrina, Mark, Brad Womack and DeAnna Pappas go on a double date in the near future.
