Guess the producers of Dancing with the Stars decided enduring even one more Kate Gosselin tirade wasn’t worth the effort, because she’s been let go.

Finishing the job that voters somehow couldn’t after her debacle of a performance Monday, the network brass told Kate to pack her bags earlier today.

The former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, who was planning a dancing homage to that bygone classic, caused nothing but headaches since joining the cast.

Her partner, Tony Dovolani, apparently decided he had enough and threatened to quit unless he was transferred to another star. ABC did him one better.

This face is also made by fans watching Kate dance.

Jon Gosselin put up with her for 10 years. ABC? About a month. The decision was handed down Thursday morning, with a source saying Kate was “shocked.”

Having become universally despised on the set (basically the Vienna Girardi of Dancing with the Stars), few tears were shed over Kate’s sudden dismissal.

What was the final straw in Gosselin being kicked off?

She was pushing her luck from the moment she first set foot on the ballroom floor. Follow the jump and read exactly what got Kate kicked off this time …

April Fools! Did you fall for this BS story?

We wouldn’t blame you, since Kate’s diva-like behavior requires no exaggeration. Everyone, including Tony Dovolani, can vouch that she is painful.

Nevertheless, that’s not enough to get her the boot for real – in fact, the drama will likely lead to big ratings for the competition. Gotta have a story, right?

Another reason we considered for kicking Gosselin off the show was the uncovering of an elaborate, vote-rigging conspiracy in which she required her eight kids to vote for her 1,000 times each or else they would not eat for a week.

Also something we could see happening.

For better or worse, Kate Gosselin is still competing on Dancing with the Stars until at least next Tuesday night. You can go ahead and ignore this fake news item.
