Kate Gosselin said that a published report claiming the reality TV mom has acted like a diva around her Dancing With The Stars peers is “unfounded” and “ridiculous,” RadarOnline.com has learned.
“If you meet me, you’ll realize I’m just like moms everywhere working,” Gosselin said during an appearance on The View Wednesday. “I have kids to provide for.”
Perhaps one source of tension among her colleagues: While the others are practicing in the Los Angeles area (where the show films), Kate’s dance partner Tony Dovolani is teaching the mother-of-eight how to dance in the basement of her Wernersville, Pennsylvania home, so she doesn’t miss out on time with her children.
Gosselin, 34, said she’s too focused on earning money to support her children to engage in a celeb rivalry; she added she has been to LaLa Land once for show-related duties, and everyone involved “was wonderful,” and that she “had a great time.”
She looked great during the appearance, showing off her new ‘do while wearing a stylish pink-purple dress.
The other pairings this season include astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Ashley Costa; ESPN stunner Erin Andrews and hunky Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Twitter-loving Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke; Bachelor hunk Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower; soap star Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska; Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough; Olympian Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya; comedienne Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel; 90210 alum Shannen Doherty and Mark Ballas.
The tenth season of Dancing With The Stars begins Monday, March 22 at 8/7c on ABC.
