Kate Gosselin turned in an awful performance last night on Dancing with the Stars. That’s nothing new, but the judges were particularly harsh, she felt.

She came in confident but now her “spirits are down” after the judges ripped her Foxtrot to shreds – her score of 15 was the night’s lowest – afterward.

Judge Bruno Tonioli told Tony Dovolani he’d have been better off dancing with “a coat hanger.” Jon Gosselin would likely prefer to have married one.

Kate told ET that the judges’ remarks definitely got to her.

“I had fun, and they didn’t seem to notice,” she said. “It’s starting to creep in a little bit. Tonight, I was trying to hold back some horrible emotions.”

Those smiles faded fast.

Defeated, she adds: “Probably not on live TV should I be standing there crying in front of the judges … It’s getting difficult. I’m depressed, sort of.”

Tony Dovolani jokingly agreed, saying he’d had “fun… up until the judges’ part.”

Was there anything at all in the judges’ remarks Kate can take as encouragement? “Carrie Ann [Inaba] said there was a teeny bit of gracefulness.”

Gotta start somewhere. Follow the jump to see Kate’s awfulness in its entirety …
