Kate Gosselin goes home, proud warriors remain on Dancing with the Stars

Kate Gosselin goes home, proud warriors remain on Dancing with the Stars

It doesn’t take a genius to say that Kate Gosselin is headed home on Dancing with the Stars tonight. The only thing that could save her is a pity vote from Jon and Kate Plus 8 fans or divorced moms.

For the rest of us, she’s pretty irritating. Her trainer, Tony Dovolani, even walked out on her. Gosselin told him “I love how you teach but you are not taking into consideration how I learn” which is a patronizing way to say, “You suck at teaching.” She also pulled the “A lot of people quit on me in life” line and in this scenario, I could understand why — she’s a serious pain (for the record, I have no comments on the divorce, just her dancing).

Tony finally said he quit and walked out where he probably found ABC producers reminding him of his contract. He then, of course, returned and it became a bonding experience (typical DWTS style).  But it sure didn’t help the dance — it was a disaster. It looked like she had never seen the steps before and hurt me to watch it. I think it was painful for most of America, so I’m betting she goes home.

In other news, what’s the deal with the men’s airplane arms (see pictures)? I know they’re all beginners, but I laugh every time I see it — especially pilot Jake. It's really more of a blend between yoga’s proud warrior stance and little boys pretending to be airplanes — hilarious!

Next time you watch the show, look out for it — guaranteed entertainment value increase. What off-the-wall thing amuses you about Dancing with the Stars? Let us know and maybe we'll write about it.
