Cast members of Dancing With the Stars miss the most controversial contestant to ever be on the show: Kate Gosselin.

They dished all about Kate and predicted who will win this season when caught up with the cast at the Race To Erase MS event at the Hyatt in Century City, California Friday night.

Kate's dance partner Tony Dovolani told's Michelle Ward he's excited that the reality show mom is returning for the finale. He says "she's excited to come back. She misses dancing. She's happy to be home with the kids."

He goes on to say "We keep texting each other a couple times a week"

Melissa Rycroft, who came in second last season, says Kate and Pam Anderson are "two of the biggest names they've had on the show. And, it definitely helps if you look at the ratings...True or not there was a lot of drama when Kate was on the show."

Melissa and last year's breakout star Gilles Marini, who now stars on ABC's Brothers & Sisters, said they'd like to see someone like comedian Niecy Nash win. In fact, Gilles said it would be okay if Erin Andrews or Chad Ochocinco won as well because none of them have danced before. "If you have a dancing background what the hell are you doing there, it's not fair." he said.

Damian Whitewood, whose partner Pam Anderson was kicked off last week,  thinks there will be a final face off with Ice Skater Evan Lysacek and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. But he says Evan has the "gold medal winning spirit."

Eighty-year-old astronaut Buzz Aldin and Chelsie Hightower both think Nicole will take home the mirror ball trophy.

The dancing stars came out to support the 17th annual Race to Erase MS event. Avril Lavigne and Heart performed and Tommy Hilfiger put on his annual fashion show. It's an A-list event that costs anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 a plate.

Philanthropist and MS activist Nancy Davis raises millions of dollars every year for MS research.
