Kate Gosselin is returning to Dancing With The Stars for one more performance, but in the meantime she’s trading her dancing shoes for running sneakers, and RadarOnline.com has all the deets.
“I’ve hung up my dancing shoes …” she writes in her TLC blog, after getting booted from the popular ABC show.
“I have resumed running daily and have smiled as I’ve reunited with an ‘old’ friend, my treadmill. (Sad, I realize, but I LOVE running, and due to time constraints took a break during the two months of dance rehearsal.) As always, I feel right where I belong as I once again ‘run’ the daily routine for and with the kids …”
On DWTS, Kate was typically in the bottom three; the judges slammed her performances. But she took judging from reality show to real life.
She writes: “A few days ago, I was playing dress up with the kids (I was forced to judge the contest in a dancing manner. Unlike judges who shall remain nameless, each costumed child received an exuberant “TEN!!!” from the mother judge!), and happened to look over. My eyes landed on my abandoned dance shoes and a wave of sadness mixed with a longing came over me. “
Kate grew nostalgic for her short-lived days as a primetime dancer: “Ohhhh suddenly I missed EVERYTHING about dancing — not only the friends I have made and stay in touch with almost daily, but also learning the steps and even the fear of sudden death that the dance floor caused me! “
Now it’s back to reality and star of the new show Kate Plus 8, “All said and done, and having had a chance to reintegrate back into home life and do a bit of reflecting, I am extremely happy to have time to think an entire thought. Without a doubt, Dancing with the Stars was a life-changing experience. I learned many valuable lessons and many things about myself. I had the opportunity to meet an amazing group of people — many of whom I’ll remain friends with long beyond our days of dance. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything! “
Watch Kate on the DWTS finale on May 24 and 25 on ABC.
