Make no mistake about it folks, Kate Gosselin is in this contest to win it. Anybody who has seen even five minutes of Jon and Kate Plus Eight knows that Kate Gosselin is always composed, always in control, and a vicious ball-breaker. The feisty mom with the parenting chops to wrangle eight little rascals doesn’t disappoint in these soundbites where she discusses her point of view on the Dancing With the Stars experience. Sure, there are moments where she feigns vulnerability, but I’m not buying it. Gosselin is going to be a take no prisoners competitor this season, and I’d have to say as the working class hero – well, she started a working class hero at least – Gosselin will probably be the easiest for regular folk audiences to accept.
This season of Dancing With the Stars has the most glamorous cast ever, and while Gosselin is often regarded as a diva/celebutante she won’t be amongst the likes of Pamela Anderson, Shannon Doherty, and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. In the long run of Dancing With the Stars, the non celebs have done very well – often the winners have come from outside of the showbiz sphere. To be sure, Kate Gosselin definitely has some serious competition when the contest kicks of on March 22nd.
Kate Gosselin has the joy, frustration and honor of raising eight children — twins and sextuplets — in central Pennsylvania. She teams with TONY DOVOLANI, who returns for his ninth season. The all-new cast of celebrities and their professional partners hit the dance floor on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” with the highly anticipated two-hour season premiere, MONDAY, MARCH 22 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
