Kate Gosselin eliminated from 'Dancing'

Kate Gosselin, one of the most talked-about contestants in the history of “Dancing With the Stars," was kicked off the show Tuesday night after weeks of drama and not-so-great performances that riled up fans.

Say what you will about Gosselin’s dancing - which often looked more like walking and which the judges described as “catatonic,” “odd” and “hard to watch” at various points of the competition - she boosted the show’s ratings and kept trying despite overwhelming criticism.

In a departure from previous results shows, when producers kept Gosselin’s fate in limbo until the very end of the hour, she and professional partner Tony Dovolani were declared to be in the “bottom two” in the first few minutes.

In a bit of a surprise, actress Pamela Anderson later joined them in the dreaded red spotlight. Both women then had to endure very tight, long camera close-ups that clearly showed their nerves before Gosselin’s name was finally announced as the celebrity who would be going home.

It was an emotional exit for Gosselin, who began to cry as soon as she began her farewell interview with co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke. At first, she couldn’t talk, so her professional partner Tony Dovolani stepped in.

“I’m very proud of Kate,” Dovolani said. “I thought you danced beautifully, you showed America that it doesn’t matter how much things go against you –- you still come out here and give it your best.”

When she regained her composure, Gosselin said she had a gut feeling this would be the night she would be eliminated.

“I’m very, very honored to have been here,” she said. “I had a wonderful teacher.”

She also thanked the fans who voted for her and kept her in the show, despite low scores from the judges.

“I was scared to death most of the time,” Gosselin added.

In a sign of just how much interest there was in Gosselin’s exit, the producers skipped the usual prepared montage of clips always shown when eliminated celebrities say their goodbyes and kept talking to her for several minutes. It was probably the most likable and accessible she's been since the start of the competition.

Then, Gosselin and Dovolani hugged, she did her “heart” gesture to the camera and she was gone.

What did you think of the show?

    It was extremely interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything that is connected to this matter. I definitely want to read more on that blog soon. BTW, pretty good design you have here, but don’t you think design should be changed every few months?

    Kate went to the extreme when she had tmmy tuck and wanted breast lift. Darn at 55 without ever having any procedure done, I look better that she does. I really wonder what I would look like if I was afforded all the freebies in life, million dollar house, kick your husband out, so what you and Jon were responsible for what you did....8 kids, why cash iisn. You make me sick.

    Kate,...please do yourself a favor,..DO NOT EVER GO ON THE VIEW. Those women tore you apart as if you werent a human w/ feelings.
    I watched your TLC a few times,...and obviously saw you on what was my favorite show, The View. I only know of you to be a co-worker, ie:mother.
    I was disgusted what the ladies said and how they ganged up against you,..only weeks after you sat on their couch. I live in a county where a lot of national bullying stories are going on and I will NOT condone what they did to you. I am trying to teach my 6yr old right from wrong. And one way to teach him is by example. I will never watch that show again.
    You're a human being. Period.

    A real working mom doesn't take to work the personal life and drama. When you are really supporting your family you don't need to let the people know what you are doing. kate likes to be around cameras and trying to be famous, but the most succesful story that matters is the emotional future for her kids. John used to be home with the kids and to be helpful, and each one has 50% of right, responsibilities and guilt too.Can they share the kids without drama?

    I think Kate is wonderful. In my opinion, she will be doing bigger and better things in her life. I am absolutely going to be following her career, because I am sure she will be proving herself to be a wonderful mother, successful women, on and off T.V. and I do believe she has lots to offer. As for all of you jealous women, get off of her case. Too bad for you. I'm am sure if you were in her situation, could you do as well as she has. Kate has come a long way, she has learned lots of life's lesson's, and I am sure she will continue to grow into a role model for women and mother's. Kate keep on keeping on. I am touched by you and I admire all of your accomplishments. Kate, I wish you every success with you new shows, and don't let all of these nasty people get you discouraged. Reach for the stars. Go girl, go.

    He arranged for her to get the house at no cost, completely furnished. If she'd stay out of the salon and away from the plastic surgeon she'd have money to pay her bills....oh, wait, those must be the bills she is talking about. The nannies are there from a church or community group, something like that, not sure if they get any money from her or not.

    It's amazing how low our country has become. I'm amazed, even though it is a small minority, that there are people dumb enough to support her and stick up for her. She has showed her true colors in every venture she has undertaken and she is a horrible wife, mother, and dancer and has no skills whatsoever to be allowed to come into our living rooms. Dumbing down of America folks.

    Dr. Phil GAVE Octomom her house? I didn't know that. Well, maybe she and Kate are both just addicted to begging! She did say though that she may lose her house and that she is unable to pay her bills, even though she has three nannies!

    Amanda, how can Octomom lose a house that was given to her by Dr. Phil? LOL, that woman is crazy and will do anything for attention.

    I've driven by her house, it's nothing that fancy by L.A. standards and in a heavily Oriental-population community. Maybe that's her problem, she can't communicate with the neighbors.

    I cannot stand women like Gosselin and Octomom who have litters of children by invitro-fertilization with the hope of getting the rest of us to feel sorry for them and support them, one way or the other!

    Octomom, after having facelifts hoping to look like Angeline Jolie, and getting a big house, was just on tv this week showing us how hard it is for her. There was a feeding trough with 14 little spaces for her babies to sit while the three nannies fed them. Some were squaling and revolting against the process, or the filming of it perhaps! Octomom went on to say she isn't making it and that she may lose her house. Whine, whine, whine.

    Just like Kate. Kate is a fraud and she knows it. Some think she will go on in her celebrity status. I don't think she can. People are starting to see through her facade. Whine, whine, whine, tears and please feel sorry for me, please love me gets to be overbearing!

    It takes a person with not much going on in their lives to so critically judge another person without having the full story.
    I understand that she put herself and her family in the media, so along with that comes some level of scruitiny. so long as my taxpayer dollars are not feeding and clothing her kids, she is golden with me.
    The beauty of living in America is freedom ... to make indivudual choices. If you do not like her, do not watch her on TV. This nation as a whole would do well to focus on ourselves and self-improvement.

    I personally know of someone, although male, who is exactly like Kate.....a total control freak. This person has no idea he is wrong and believes it is the rest of the world who has the problem. Unfortunately, his adult/teenage children are suffering alcoholism and long-term analysis because of this problem. Kate's "I just don't get it. I just don't get it" speech on DWTS is her reaction to relationship conflict. She truly doesn't "get it". I think Kate needs an intervention to get her into behaviour modification rehab. I mean no disrespect here. Kate has a need for attention/fame. She monitors what her children can see of DWTS, cutting out any part that puts her in a bad light. I understand that. What I don't understand is why she, in the first place, allows herself to be put in any bad light from which she has to shield her children. Teaching her children that "mommy is always right and the victim" will have huge repercussions. Is one way to "save" Kate's family a different reality show (yeah, yeah, I know. do we need another one? she's going to do it anyway so why not one with positive results?) where she enters rehab? She would become America's darling trying to change for the sake of her children. This would satisfy her need for fame (she already has enough money and does NOT have to continually leave her children to make more) and, in the long run, hopefully heal those she loves through their own simultaneous counseling. She needs to get rid of all these people who use her as a cash cow and willingly exploit Kate and her family for their own greed. Without condoning her personality or behaviour in any way, I feel sorry for the woman and her family.

    Gone, but not for long. The crocodile tears & the feel-sorry-for-me-I-popped-out-8-kids routine will return again & again, I am sure. Kate Gosselin is one of those people who had a taste of fame & became addicted. It will be a long time before we are rid of her. I still think we should put her & OctoMom in a TV show. They could call the show "Tacky Times Two".

    Amanda, I never watched her show with the kids either. I only know what I've seen on DWTS and you and I agree completely on that. Plus, I've seen her up close and personal here in L.A. and she is NOT a nice person. Very condescending and just downright mean to folks who just want to try to be nice to her.

    "Dancing" has been my favorite show since day one. I even stuck with it all through the Kate Gosselin debacle. Oh she was an embarrassment to the show. One of the judges said she danced like someone pushing a grocery cart. They were right. It upset me that she was on so long! That woman CANNOT dance! Poor Tony!

    I didn't know much about Gosselin before watching her on DWTS, but I quickly learned to dislike her whining, crying, teary-eyed self-pity. She had invitro-fertilization to have a bunch of kids, and is now exploiting them while enriching herself. She wanted people to feel so sorry for her, and begged to be loved.

    Whatever! I did not fall for it. I felt sorry for her kids.

    Good riddance, Kate.

    I give her credit for trying. She has more courage than alot of people going through everything she has been and still facing the camera every week. I wanna know why she is getting talked about as a bad mom for supporting her kids. How many actresses or actors go away to film a movie but they arent getting put under the microscope. I think the haters should stop reading about her if they are sick of her. No one made you watch her 'dance' and no one makes you read the articles. Until you walk in her shoes I think no one should judge her. We only see pieces of the story, we arent living it. Keep your head up Kate, you are the only one that knows what you can and cant handle.

    Thank God and Greyhound she's gone....to quote an old country song.

    But not quite yet. She is scheduled to be on a reality TV show, traveling around the country (while her kids are stuck back in PA with the nannies) interviewing other moms with lots of kids. So those of you with a big household who adore Kate, sign up and maybe she'll come visit you.

    I see Jon getting custody of these kids very soon if she doesn't wake up and get her priorities straight. And if the rumors are true that she may be on The Bachlorette, she will definitely lose her kids. No judge in his right mind would give custody to a woman who's cavorting around in hot tubs and swimming pools with a bunch of strange men she barely knows.

    I think everyone who's commented that she's only interested in herself, her looks, being on TV, has it dead on.

    How can so many people who claim never to watch the show have so much to say about it? As far as I know, Betty White was never on the show (probably thinking of Cloris Leachman - talk about horrible dancing!!!). Kate is not the worst dancer ever to be on the show; Mr. T was. He was subbing for his son and just came out and stomped around like an elephant and made no effort whatsoever to do the routine, but people just kept him on the show far too long. As for Kate, she was not a good dancer, but neither was Buzz, and a couple of the other men are also "stompers," just walking through the routine, with no musicality or appropriate physical movement. Also, Kate did not learn about the custody battle until she was already in rehearsals and committed to the show. I agree that she looked like she was not enjoying any of it most of the time while on camera. It was probably something she was sorry she got mixed up in, but was already committed to it. Jon is a sorry excuse for a husband, and I'm not sure he could have been much of a father (especially when the kids were babies and toddlers) if Kate and her OCD had not been around. She kept things organized and humming. In any event, this episode in her life is over, and people need to give her a break so she can take care of the personal hell she is going through right now (caused, of course, by Jon). Give 'im hell, Kate. You've got a lot of friends from years of watching the show.

    I don't have a lot of sympathy for the "single mom" campaign for Kate, I used to enjoy Jon & Kate plus 8 and I miss the show..I stopped watching it because of the degrading way Kate talked to Jon, it got so bad I could not enjoy the children. When they were interviewed Kate was answering interrupting Jon and then being sarcastic, I used to wonder how he was going to keep his manhood and stay in the cituation, when the children were with Jon, she acted jealous, calling like he was one of the children..I am not happy to see anyone get divorced and I wish Kate could have recognized her arrogance on the tapes, but Jon is just as much a father as she is a mother and it is not always about how much money you can bring in, it's how well you teach your children how to manage with what they have..too many people have been taught to value things instead of enjoying life..fun with my dad was him popping popcorn with butter and taking us to the park or drive in..him going out and saying come on..he had equal voice in the home..and yes, at times my mother made more money than he did..but we did'nt know that until we were grown. We need to put values on people instead of $$. I hope Jon & Kate plus returns with Jon spending time with the children and Kate can do the same..bring the show back, maybe if Kate had respected him he would'nt have gone on that binge..I forgive him and hope to see him on a show as a dad of his kids

    I don't believe people are jealous of Kate. Nowadays, it would be so easy for anyone to go on a reality show, most of us choose not to. The issue is not that she's making money but the fact that she's not gracious about it. Instead of counting her blessings, she constantly nags and whines. The bottomline is that she has plenty of money to raise her family if she chooses to live modestly. There is a difference between supporting your family and trying desperately to maintain the life of celebrity that you can't afford. She's so caught up in it that she's losing sight of what really matters and that's her family. The state of PA already committed to paying the tuition of the kids. So we're really talking about everyday necessities. Kate's supporters get angry that people dare to judge her yet they have no issues bashing Jon calling him a lazy bum but are quick to forget that he supported his family before and throughout the show. The same people get angry that others judge Kate w/o knowing her but "know for a fact" that Jon doesn't have a job and that he's a bad father. That is simply utter hypocrisy and like Kate, you lack credibility.

    I am so glad that no-talent, whining, can't -do-anything Kate is off of the show. Although Buzz wasn't a great dancer, he was much more appealing that this woman who THINKS she is a star.

    The next Reality Star off the show should be JAKE. He needs to go somewhere with his trailer trash and find a hole.

    DWTS should have Tony keep giving Kate dancing lessons and then have them back as guests on the results night for the finally.

    They should advertise it as "Mystery Guests". That would really help DWTS ratings.

    Of course, the dance lessons should be taught while the children are in school, so that Kate can give it her full attention.

    Hopefully, there is no more drama created for Kate by anyone.

I have never seen the show or her show with her kids but every day i see hatred and envy and attacks on this woman..do you have nothing better to do? she loves her kids and she is working to pay the bills and dancing on this show is something they will be proud of one day..let it go and look in the mirror..jealousy gets you no where, treat people as you wish to be treated. so sad how sick so many people are..

    Karen – Jon is supporting the kids with $20,000.00 a month. Trust me, I'm sure he's paying it, otherwise Kate would be on every talk show to let everyone know that he isn't. I would think that he still is getting money from TLC as the show is in re-runs, etc.

    I doubt very much that this woman is hurting financially. We all could live very nicely on $20,000.00 a month, 8 kids or not.

    Can her 15 minutes be up now? Seriously, the only reason she's at all known is because she and her ex-husband didn't grasp the concept that fertility medications cause multiple births. She's an insincere, plastic twit with no real personality except tyrant. I honestly believe that her ex stuck around as long as he did because he knew the child support would kill him. He's a dullard but she's a dictator. Please let this be the laast we see of her.

    Kate has a really high life-style expectation from what I've read about her. I know that raising children is expensive, but there are a lot of folks out there that are doing it and doing a really good job of it on a lot less money that Kate seems to feel she needs . I'm not disputing the fact that she has to work, but she doesn't need to keep exploiting her children just to live the high life. I also agree with those that state Jon needs to step up and start helping to support the kids.

    But I am so glad she's off of DWTS.. it was just painful to watch her each week.

    Andreas- I agree. Why do new organizations keep reporting on her like she is some big star? What the heck is going on in this world when we have someone like Kate Gosselin endlessly talked about on every entertainment show as well as NEWS programs. ENOUGH! She is NOT newsworthy. Despite what you think, 99% of us do not want to hear anything about her so STOP reporting on her. Stop it. Just stop it.
    __________________________________________________________

    As long as they get some 600+ posts or more like they have right now....trust me, they will continue reporting on her and I'm sure she just loves it! With her 2 news shows coming up on TLC, she will be around for several years....she isn't going away anytime soon.

    I just find it funny that I'm never "held in moderation" whenever I post on anything concerning her, but always am, when I post on other topics and my post is also never shown....makes you wonder....

    In a perfect world, we'd all just ignore the reporting on her and not respond and she'd just slowly go away, but I doubt that will happen.

Watch your kids starve to death? l am a single mom and I know how it breaks my heart when my children ask something I can't afford."

It breaks my heart seeing a low IQ come in here and wail over a woman who had a choice in all matters in her life and screwed it up.

    should never have been on the show should have been out first week when she walked instead of danced. Worst person ever on show for dancing ability. Those of you who love her should be glad she is gone since it clearly was too much for her to deal with.

    But lets not kid ourselves that she needed the job. If she was that short of money, the implants and hair extensions wouldn't have been done and we would live in a normal size house not a mansion with nannies.

    So I will stop hating Kate if you will stop being ridiculous about how poor she is.

    Ding dong! I'm so glad she's gone! I actually felt horribly sorry for her partner and watching her was like watching a car wreck...it's horrible but you can't help but stare in stunned horror and hope it will be over soon. Tony was gracious but come on, no one should have to put up with that much self-piting, whining hissy fits from anyone over the age of 4. The woman may actually be a nice person (but it sure doesn't show) and she may actually care about her children and think she is doing the right thing, but she is not likeable or interesting as a celebrity...only a trainwreck, and even those get boring after a while. And she's definitely got no talent for entertaining if those kids weren't there. Her time is over and she needs to move on to a real life that doesn't involve desperately jumping in front of every camera in sight proclaiming herself a martyr to her fame.

    It took me a long time to come to terms with this but the bottom line is this question to oneself ...

    "DO YOU KNOW WHO KATE GOSSELIN IS? .... NOW, DOES KATE GOSSELIN KNOW WHO YOU ARE???

    The answer is most likely "yes" then "no".

    I don't necessarily admire her and certainly don't think she has any dancing talent, but Kate is maximizing on her opportunities. And we all have to strike while the iron is hot.

    I cannot say I like or dislike Kate because I do not know her personally and I have been through enough things in life to know that things are not always what they appear. As a mother I would do anything to give my kids a good life and the opportunity for an education. As a nurse with two kids my paycheck is sometimes barely enough. I sometimes hardly see my TWO kids with a hospital schedule. It would be impossible if I had 8! So if she has no emotional or financial support from anyone else and she has to do other things to support her kids, then good for her. At the end of the day what matters is that she is working, not on welfare. That she is proving to be a strong woman even if it seems the world is against her. And that the only people that have to like her do, her children.

I think she was glad she got voted off but couldn't pass up the opportunity to get more sympathy from her pathetic fans. So she cried more crocodile tears.

    I just refreshed my screen and wow!, This has to be by far THE MOST commented-on news blurb ever run by CNN online. Just tons and tons of comments in only a few hours of one day. What does that tell us, everyone? The top to bottom list of them all is nearly endless.

    To most of the Kate-backers who are up in odds over all the negative Kate-critics, get over it. You all fail to see the one majorly overlooked point here in this whole Kate G. soap opera-the fact that a once venerable national network like ABC could make such a pitiful and loathesome mistake in its programming by casting Kate G on DWTS.

    Com'on ABC, you guys really "jumped the shark" on this one. Does anyone in your executive front offices even read any of this online pontificating? All of the negative slop being rallied at you? Didn't you realize at the outset of this season's DWTS that this was going to blow up in your face? ABC is the real loser here, not Kate G.

    Most high-up executive level programming network hacks are just grossly overpaid and over educated wonkheads who don't really understand the current TV audience that is out here.

    At least Hollywood films are from time to time worthy of watching and can be lauded. The recent "The Blind Side" is a good example of quality entertainment that is performed by REAL talented stars.

    Kate is tenacious but also self-deprecating. She is both gutsy and fragile. Her demeanor can be unpolished, yet she is also highly intelligent. She can be abrupt but also loving. It just goes to show you that people love to hate a woman who can't be stuffed into a stereotypical mold. The irrefutable fact is that Kate is a single mom who must provide for eight children. She is making the best of a very difficult situation. I, for one, applaud her, and I will watch any television show that features her. I voted on DWTS for the first time ever because of Kate.

Now Tony can get back to his dance studio and start teaching people who will appreciate him. Maybe next time he'll have a partner with some ability, willing to listen to the teacher.
    As he said to Kate, when they had their argument, " I AM a teacher.
    I TEACH TEACHERS!" I think Derek and his partner ar terrific, and I love Evan but somehow I have never warmed up to Anna. I hope he can win.

    I think what bothers people about Kate, – is that she's such a fake and it's so easy to see through. Kate is just an average woman, but she professes to be someone she isn't. That is what puts people off. She is no more of a celebrity than I am. People tend to see through the phony facade and see what she truly is. She is actually nothing more than a completely self-centered, very untalented individual.
    Her claim that she's doing this to support her kids is nonsense! She is a glamour queen who seeks the limelight only for herself.
    She has yet to earn the respect of anyone who works hard for a living – of those that can't afford $7,000.00 hair extensions, or 24 hour day care, or a mansion, or a body guard, or limos and all expense paid trips around the country. Some day she'll go away – I do hope it's soon.

    Thank goodness that train wreck is over. I was so tired of watching Kate walking around the floor in some hidious outfit and then whining about how much work it is to raise 8 kids. Not so sure it's so hard when you have 2 nannies. She uses her kids to make people like here. There are other families with that many kids or more that seem to be able to take care of their families without having to go on TV to do it. She uses her kids for sympathy. Maybe she shouldn't be paying 8,500 for hair extensions and not live in a mansion and she wouldn't have to do all that TV. And if it is so hard, how did she make time this week to hit every talk show she could. No one else on Dancing with the Stars seemed to think it was necessary to go on those talk shows and whin about their lives.

    Kate may be as stiff as a board when she is dancing ( YOU HATERS PLEASE TRY AND DO BETTER ..... I CAN"T) But as a Mom she is first class and she is just doing what ever it takes to provide a good life for her 8 children.. I would MUCH rather see her out there doing what ever it takes and being a great role model to her children then laying around getting WELFARE and food stamps at the public expence...

    SHE pays for a good School for her children as well as school supplies, food, clothing, shoes, Medical care , housing, Trips , entertainment, toys and transportation...SHE pays for good quality child care for her children while she is working ( what ever the job is this week) She is not asking the taxpayer to do anything in the way of providing for her children... she unlike her ex-Husband works for a living and so what if it is on TV or selling books or heaven forbid dancing poorly...
    None of what she is doing for her children comes cheep and she is doing it on her own.. ( Jon pays some child support but since he is not working it is not enough what he pays is coming out of an escrow account set up by the arbitrater and that is realy why he wants to go back to court.. he wants out of the agreement to pay child support and he wants access to that money that was ment for his children... can we all say DEAD BEAT.) Kate is the only REAL parent here... it is not easy to be the responsible parent...

    swmell – she's the only mother on TV that I know that has publicly said she wants to switch places with her babysitter because she "misses her kids sooo much!"

    The only reason she started doing TV in the first place was to pay for her tummy tuck – not to support her kids (fact!)

    I guess the reason she has to state so many times that she puts her kids first and does everything for her kids is because she feels she has to remind all the negative people why she is doing what she is doing. Maybe you would all like it better if she did nothing, stayed home on welfare so that you could all support the family.
    I don't know how many of you have kids but when you have them you have to be organized, having that many little ones it is a must. As for the husband he is as uninvolved and unplugged now as he was when they were on the show! Any Mom should know that if you havent' got s Dad that is quick to help out you end up getting a little testy. Cut her a break she is doing what she does to support her kids, like it or not. it is what it is.

    I agree with all comments – thank God she is gone. If another of the better dancers had been voted off again this week, I would stopped watching the show. She was horrible, and lasted three weeks too long. And also feel sorry for Tony having to put up with her tantrums – no wonder her husband Jon left her – what a project. Life is too short, and the crying has to stop. Get over it – you caused it – get on with life.

    Kate Gosselin and her husband were immoral to the core. They already had something like three children and decided (unethically) to undergo fertility treatments, needlessly bringing five more children into the world. Then, struggling to find a way to deal with their immoral actions and mistakes, they profited from their children by launching a really bad television show. Why nobody talks about how unethical these two people are is beyond me....instead, we focus on their love lives and dancing abilities? It's the beginning of the end for our society...

    Get a grip people. So Kate wasn't a great dancer. She came out there and tried. It was an honor for them to ask her to be on the show. As a single mom I can tell you that I'd do whatever it takes to support my kids. Kate is doing what she needs to. Jon is a deadbeat loser who is now trying to ride on Kate's coattails and get some cash out of the deal. Kate has learned a lot through the situation and we'll be seeing more of her on t.v. Hopefully she'll tone down the type A personality.

    Do we know that Jon isn't paying support? No we do not and there is no way Ms. Controller will say otherwise. She wants the pitty. She wants to look like she is the only one providing for these kids. We have all had to cut back here and there when times get bad. Maybe she needs to downsize her living situation. My mother raised 7 of us on little to nothing so it can be done. It's time Kate put her big girl panties on and deal with reality. Networks need to do her kids a favor and not give her the attention she is so craving. Her dancing partner said last night she has no motivation. Ya think. She wants things handed to her. If this were my daughter, I would try and find some intervention for her. I don't think Dr. Phil could even help her.

    Shame on some of you! This woman hashad to single-handedly raised her 8 children practically by herself since day "1". Yes, she could've been less of a shrew sometimes, but you know what – I don't think any of you could've met her challenges & been able to deal with her absolutely useless partner in life! Jon was the 9th child! Kate's ability to organize & facilitate the every day lives of the 10 of them was no less than a miracle; she could be the CEO of any large corporation. Can she dance? Heck, no! But she got out there every week, endured the mean & unkind things said about her & did her best. I do not understand all these horrible comments about her! She will go on to do great things & you naysayers will have egg all over your faces! Again, shame – shame on you!

    You have this person that her ONLY claim to fame is having 8 kids, she is another person with no other talent then being a mother. Now she is trying to find something to make money to support the kids she says. She has no idea what her ex does and maybe she should check into that because if he is selling drugs she needs to know that. Her kids have a dad and parents to teach them the day to day. If the parents relationship is that strained they are teaching the kids to have no patience and to not care. That is the wrong messege along with tabloid crap.

    It's amazing to me that so many people are so full of hate. I want to see the proof that Jon pays that much money with no job. I do NOT believe that. She could not have been on this show unless someone asked her to be. I am a working mother and grandmother. Of course I would rather be at home, but no one is telling me to stay home with my kids and grandkids. I work because I have to to pay for insurance and probably for most of your insurance also. So many don't work and use the E.R. for their doctor, someone has to work . Doesn't look like Jon is. Most of the women on TV and in movies have children, Angelina Jolie has 6, are you telling her to stay home and take care of them? Of course not. I don't know a woman who ways "I don't want to take care of my kids, I work so I won't have to." Give me a break, its a double standard.

    Those tears of hers made me sick. I really had to keep from pukking. And, I'll tell you, if it doesn't turn out that she & Steve are fooling around, I'll eat my hat. Attached rooms a hundred nights a year. ????? I absolutely believe they started fooling around, she decided to end her marriage, but didn't want to lose the gig, so they tried to keep it underwraps. Then when Jon did have a trist, HE was called the cheater.
    WHATEVER I used to like their show till I got my full of her lashing out all the time, usually at Jon. Their sit downs when she'd mimmic his breathing, etc., was a true sign of LOW SELF ESTEEM! on her part....

Kate is a woman with integrity and I commend her for her efforts. Whether we are single or not, we all spend 8+ hours away from our kids to work/make a living. This is a fact of life.

    Whatever your opinion of Kate happens to be, her kids do not deserve your negative comments. Kate may have shown her short tempered side on the show but i am pretty sure most of us who have kids will agree that she had a full plate with those kids and an idiot for a husband. You might be "short" too. Unless you have walked a mile in those shoes you should not judge because you do not know what it is like. As far as dancing goes, it was a way to keep food on the table. Nurses work very long hours and i can assure you that she sees them more than she would if she had to go back to nursing. Nurses work 12hr shifts, 6 days per week. Add it up. I hope all of you who are bashing are perfect people. But, i doubt that. Especially since you are bashing someone based on stories that you have never met. Give the girl a break. She just wants to take care of her kids.

She, and her husband, chose to pursue fertility treatments in order to expand their family and got more than they bargained for. Then, in order to help support such a large family, accepted TLC's offer to showcase their lives on national television. They are not the only ones, but they are the ones who took their "fame" and "celebrity" too far at the expense of their family. Jon Gosselin may not be in the "picture" in so far as he is not in the spotlight to the extent that his ex-wife is, but, I challenge anyone to say he is not present in his childrens' lives. And, does anyone know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not helping to financially support his kids? Kate just happens to know how to work the celebrity machine better than him, and gets paid very well to do so. And, getting paid to support your family is paramount for any working parent. She just shouldn't couch her reasons for earning what she does in wanting to ONLY support her kids. 'Cause, let's face it, she likes what money can afford her ($7,000 hair extensions, bodyguards, nannies, a mansion, travel, etc).

    As for her ability to dance... she doesn't have any and for that reason was rightfully voted off DWTS. Further, her treatment of Tony Dovolani in particular, and people in general, is shameful. But, again that behavior is very likely a product of her exposure to the public life she chose as much as it is a condition of her personality.

    She is not a nice person, and for that she should be ashamed, for she is one of her childrens' primary role models and should focus on that instead of her "celebrity".

    FINALLY!!!! It was bad enough watching her "dance", but having to
    watch her whine and cry and refuse to cooperate with Tony was just
    irritating as hell. He has been a real gentleman, and next season he
    should get the person who has the most promise.

    It's easy to see why her marriage failed..she acts more like a spoiled
    brat than her children ever will. She was a witch with Jon, and that
    seems to be her real personality. ]

    DWTS...choose more carefully next season.

    Can't comment on Kate's dancing talent, as I don't watch DWTS very often and never saw her dance. What I did watch though was a couple of episodes of Jon and Kate. That's all I could stand. It took me about 10 mins and I was turned off by her repulsive personality.

    Matt Schafer, DUH, it is a dancing contest. She can't dance and apparently didn't want too since all she did was yawn and complain.

    How can you say they should have kept a person who walks instead of dancing. She was miserable if you like her you should have been happy, since it was clearly too much for her to do. Too nerve wracking.

    I think you give her too much credit if you think the show would be cancelled because she left later than she should have.

    Ever notice that the people who support Kate Gosselin are all women? Do you get the feeling that these women are just like Kate..i.e. frustrated housewives with no talents who crave any kind of a spot light so they can feel like a "star" for a brief, shining moment? Get a life, ladies. Do something worthwhile with your time and you won't need the superficial trappings of a tabloid life to make you feel you have self worth. Just because a camera gets pointed at her does make her worth looking at.

    Unvelieveable how everyone judges. I'm not a Jon and Kate fan, but I don't live in their household anymore than any of you do. As a single mother, I am speaking from experience when I say that we do what we have to in order to care and support our children. You are all bashing this woman for being away from her children in order to support them. So far there has been no report of their father working. So what is the difference between Kate being away from home for short periods of time to support her family than a doctor, lawyer, or even a soldier? There are many professions that take one away from the home in order to maintain a roof over their heads, food in their stomachs, and clothes on their backs. And I'm sure there is always someone there giving the care to the children that they need when the sole provider has to be away. Judge not least you be judged.

    And it is OUR business because she MADE it our business when they opened up their lives with their reality show.

I love DWTS, but I have refused to watch it until Kate was kicked off. I could careless how she dances. She was a (bleep) to Jon and thus is why he found another woman to make him feel like a man. Is cheating the answer? No, but when a woman treats her husband like she did Jon, what other option did he have? I am sure he couldn't have just walked away, she would of never allowed that!

    I am sure she will go and find another show to be on. She doesn't want to stay home. She likes the fame she has had even though it was negative most of the time. People like her are never satisfied and will always find a way to blame others for her faults. Everybody talks about how bad her ex-husband is, well she I feel is worse than he. They both are worthless pieces of junk and I can not figure out why people want more of them. Because she has done this show and a couple others for guess type things she thinks she is a celeb now and that all of hollywood are her friends and fans. I don't believe we have seen the last of her yet. Who knows we might see her in a movie. She is so low it will probably be a low movie, the type where there are tissues in the seats! Go home and be a mom if you can lady. I think once you were a nurse. Whatever happened to that profession? I guess that work is beneath you now! She would have been off this show if the fans would have voted truthfully instead of being idiots like that lopez guy. Blame him and the other fools for keeping her on the show.

    The inordinate hatred for Kate is caused by one simple factor: envy. She is an ordinary person who by reason of her medically assisted fertility has ascended to a level of celebrity that most of those who claim to despise her would love to reach. Her unpleasant personality shone through on her so-called family reality show and made her an object of animosity for many: the bossy neighbor we don't like...who now has become famous, yet! The media-fueled divorce accelerated her renown/notoriety as everyone –even those who profess not to care at all about who she is and what she does–took a position on who was right and who was wrong. It was a stroke of genius to add her to this cast: I doubt anyone else on it has ever engendered this type of interest. No, she is not a performer: she is an ordinary person who has been transmogrified into a media star..and like just about any one of us given such an opportunity, will not go back to her "old" life unless forced to do so. I suspect most of the heated exchanges between her and her partner were scripted (like everything else on these ridiculous reality shows). In fact, the friction created a trend as they now are seemingly showing more scenes of discord between all of the created couples. I have a good friend who appeared on a reality show about buying a home: she told me that she didn't get to say five words that came from her own mind in twenty hours of shooting. TV is TV: real life is reality.

I have been there and done that and I know what it takes. It seems to be ok to be a deadbeat dad. the double standards in this world are ignorant.

    I don't think I have ever witnessed anything quite so painful as watching her 'dance'. Not only because she moved like she was made of cement but because of her fake smiles, her ridiculous 'I love you" signs, ostensiblly for her children, but really for everyone to see her doing it for her children, and her thinly veiled contempt of the judges when they commented negatively. At that is the core of who she is: a nasty woman who can't take anyone not agreeing with her or letting her control them. That is why she finally wore down Jon and turned him into a raging lunatic...she beat him down with insults and treated him like a 10 year old. If she loves her children so much then go ahead and be with them for god sakes. Even Octomom won't stoop to reality TV and Kate isn't even close to being done with it.

    I never liked her dancing or her personality, but she did represent someone who has never performed at all, so it was somewhat interesting to see her attempts. It got old after the first or second show, so I'm glad that she was finally voted off.

    she should have thought about how she was going to raise and support her kids before she had them. She knew she was having 8 kids, she didn't have to have 8 kids, now it's "boo-hoo poor me". I'm so sick of her that I could VOMIT. And in real life, she IS a b**tch, i've heard stories from people that deal with her on a daily basis. SHE IS NOT A NICE PERSON OR MOTHER. GOODBYE FAT COW

    Way to go Kate...you came in week after week and gave it your all ~ even with all the negative publicity going on in your life!!! Hm...at least your actually out TRYING to make a living for your 8 children! Who cares how you do it ~ reality TV Shows ~ NO ONE IS IN YOUR PLACE and can actually judge you! The only thing your WORTHLESS ex (thank goodness) husband is doing is chasing one woman after another and making himself look foolish & pathetic! Excellent job Kate ~ Keep your head held high and flip your middle finger in the jealous peoples direction!!! **PS – I don't watch DWTS, but checked Yahoo EVERY morning to see how she fared!

    It was hard to watch her dance. I feel sorry for her partner Tony who had to deal with all the drama. However, I don't think it's far that an ice-skater and a singer/dancer/performer are on the show as well. It's not fair to the other contestants who have no dancing experience.

    I have not always watched an entire season of DWTS, but I did watch some of this season and cannot believe Kate hung on this long! It was horrible watching her get worse each week. I for one cannot believe that there are people buying the magazines and books, etc..to keep following her story. She needs to get over herself a bit. She tries to say her kids are everything when clearly that is not the case. If it were she would have taken the money from the first book and from the show and during this rough time in her kids lives she would be laying low and truly being there for them. In a few years we will see what damage this has all done to the children. There are lots of working parents who struggle to raise their families and we do not have the perks of fancy vacations and houses that are paid for by others and tv deals and such and we are not whining about it to the world.....

    She did the best that she could do. I voted for her each show and was sad to see her go. I admire her for trying to stick through it. She has 8 children to provide for. People who are making fun of her should really understand that someone has to take care of those kids. If she was working as a nurse, she would be working 12 or more hour shifts and not even having nearly enough money to pay the bills and put food on the table for those kids. What about all of the other mom's on the show who have nannies to take care of their children while they worked? Why is the public so hard on Kate?

    Why do people hate Kate? She makes herself out to be a victim. She is hardly a victim. Despite what she may say, she is financially better off even with 8 kids than a lot of people are with just one. She acts like she is alone in her struggle and while she may be the primary caregiver, this does not mean she is alone. Jon is a pitiful person also but he is present in his kids lives. I know people that a really single parents and raising their kids without trying to be a victim. I do not fault a person for doing what it takes to raise their family but making yourself out to be a martyr gets you no sympathy when millions of other people are doing the same damn thing without the financial rewards she has received over the years.

    1)Thank God that debacle is over. She was an embarassment to dance 2) I was SICK and TIRED of very excuse being made for her. EVERY person on that show has a family, a job, and other things to do. Yet she found time to complain about wanting to dance, about people hounding her, about being busy and about life. She is just a horrible person who wants hand outs for everything. Maybe if she hadn't have run off her husband and maybe if she didn't treat people like crap, she would get a sypathetic ear. She chose to keep having kids and then to parade them on a show. She choses to keep traveling the country. Just leave us alone and go into hiding. Your kids are the one who will need help down the road because of what you put them through.

    I'm glad. I know they had her on the show because people know who she is, but that doesn't necessarily make you a celebrity. Kate is just a gal who had 8 kids, nagged her husband until he left and built a TV show around the circus. In fact, if you watch the shows you realize that Kate was a very small part of it. Her kids made up most of the show and Jon did all the leg-work. Why does she now think she's going to be a celebrity? All along she had the smallest part...outside of the actual pregnancy and birth.

I can forgive the boob job/tummy tuck, because if I'd birthed eight babies I'd probably want one of those too! However... the other superficial nonsense... in the words of the wise Ricky Skaggs, "Don't Get Above Your Raisin'".

And sorry, but if you're trying to care for your family, the best way isn't to put yourself in the celebrity spotlight. No matter how much money is involved, it's not healthy. For that reason, and the fact that the woman can not dance, I'm glad she's been eliminated. Now we'll just have to wait to see what next project she'll undertake to "feed her babies."

    Some people are just high if they believe that this woman is required to work. She doesn't have to work another day in her life if she doesn't want to. She's gotten money from her book deals, DVD sales, the show got them $75,000 an episode, that alone is a nice nest egg, and then $22,000 a month is child support. All single moms should be so lucky. If she works, it's because she wants to, she doesn't have to. I would think that she would have wanted to take some time off just to be with the kids and make sure that they adjusted well to the divorce, especially with it being so recent. So her being on DWTS was more about fame than for money. I would have more respect for her if she just said that she wanted to do the show for herself instead of the "I am doing it for the money to support my kids."

    Because she decided to exploit her children to make a buck, and once that was done, she decided to exploit herself. SHE decided to have multiple children, SHE decided to let her family star on a TV show, and SHE decided to constantly emasculate her husband which caused his eyes (and other body parts) to wander.

    I do not care to walk two feet in her shoes, much less a mile. Come on, she has a nanny to take care of her kids and spends thousands of dollars on hair extensions! I work a hard 40 hours a week and feel luck to be able to take my son to a movie once a month.

    I think it's disgusting that this no-talent witch is even known to us. All I know is that she was hateful to her husband on her TLC show and was an embarrassment on DWTS. What is more alarming is that she and Octomom are famous for having litters of kids. That's truly disgusting and disturbing that you don't need looks, talent, or brains to become rich and famous. I can't stand her and I feel sorry for those kids and the poor guy who's life she ruined. Of course, her husband cheated on her, she's the worst.

    Nothing personal about her character, or her parental skills etc. BUT her dancing was painful to watch, I have to commend, tony on maintaining his composure. From what little we saw behind the scenes, she was not the easiest person to get along with. So this is more of a thumbs up to Tony Dovolani: great job mate hope to see you next season.

    As a person, it's hard to see anyone get all the public humiliation that this gal has gotten. She has brought a lot of it on herself I agree but I think she is stuck. I can't imagine dealing with personal stress on top of public humiliation. I am not defending her actions, just her as a person. Yep, she has a lot on her plate.

Which needs to be called something else if their going to put someone like her on the show anyway. She isn't a Star in my book. Send her butt home and make her stay there and take care of those kids instead of trying to be something she not on TV.

    DWTS is a trashy show anyways–are people seriously watching it for the 'talent'? It's a reality show, just like all the rest. Kate doesn't make it any better or worse. And, we should just get used to seeing her on TV, because she will continue to get offers for shows, and she will no doubt accept over and over again. So get over it, peeps.

    And it sure doesn't equate to grace; Holy Mother of All That is Good, Kate, you look like Elaine Benice on Seinfeld. I'll give you credit for effort but, WOW, you cannot dance.
    Kate will land on her feet and eventually find a man who is more than happy to have her bring home the bacon and take care of her children.

    If little ole Kate had concentrated on treating her husband proplerly versus trying to control and demoralize the man maybe she wouldn't have to tell the world just how great she is...TLC should be ashamed of giving her a show and that network has lost any credibility it had with me and will be cancelled with my provider...too bad the didn't burn witches on the stake – then we would be done with her for good and John boy could live in peace!

    I did not watch the show, but from what i hear, her danicng was not good! I understand she has 8 kids, but why is she different from any other celebrity who takes months, sometimes years, to film movies and be away from their families. They are usually raised by nannys! I dont necessarily think she shouls have been on the show, but she has to provide for her children, just like every other parent in this world. A regular day in and day out job would not be enough to provide for her 8 children so why not dance and have fun and make money! She is now back with her kiddos! Just be glad she's not making you pay for her kids and being on welfare like other lazy parents who just think its too hard. She's doing the best with what she has and might as well milk it while ya can. It wont be there forever!

    I thought it was time for Kate to go. She clearly was the least talented and with her other commitments, she did not have the time or energy to train to get better. That being said, I truly enjoy it when the show kind of "goes back to its roots" to showcase 'stars' who have not had a background in dancing. This is one of the reasons I am rooting for Jake; he tries really hard, he's not a dancer, and he just works his tail off to get better.

    The voiceover of Tony (on Tuesday night) saying that 'Kate is completely unmotivated and it is exhausting..." was the final nail in the coffin for all of us who have enjoyed watching Kate on her own show and hoped she would have a natural dancing ability on this show. All I can say to Kate is this: You are a better dancer than I could ever hope to be, in my wildest dreams. Thank you for showing me that we can overcome fears and get out there and try something new.

    Although I find it entertaining, I am troubled by the increased presence of the entertainers and Olympic medalists who seem to find dancing so easy and natural. I don't think they even belong on the same show with the Buzz Aldrin, Kate Gosselin, and others.

    Kate not a star? She's a star. She's not an actor, that's all. She is a published author, and a minor celebrity. She has as much reason to be there as most of the other folks there.

    It was very hard to watch her try to dance, not that I could do any better. I do understand her taking on anything that would help her family.

Why we watch it happen before our eyes is a great mystery, I tuned in like a child peaking into something that I shouldn't have. Such pain and bad dancing all wrapped up into Kate must have been intriguing somehow. Who knows what our society will tune into, but we sure all did in huge numbers, and still will.

EVERY single Mom would love to be able to do the things she can do with her kids and give them that lifestyle. I'm sure most of the negative comments come from dead beat dads spolied stay at home Mom's with unhappy husbands or sterile women.....Leave her alone and keep her kids out of it.

    If people really watched the original shows they must know that Kate could be very nasty to Jon, Jon always looked as if he were odd man out,

    Their dhow and the show about a famiy with 19 children – the Duggars, are far from newsworthy. The perks they received were unbelievable. They were able to do things because the sponsors are so generous.

    Those perks could have been given to many different families who struggle far more than the Gosselins and Duggars.

    I'm not at all a fan of Kate's, but I do believe she WAS taking care of her kids by doing this. It's going to cost a fortune to raise 8 kids and I'm sure she wants to also be able to send them to college, and the opportunity currently exists for her to make serious bucks off her name and story. Tell me honestly that you wouldn't do the same. That said, it sure was hard to watch her dance. It felt like watching a skater who just keeps falling. And watching the "candid" moments during training periods did nothing to make me feel she's been misjudged. She really seems like a rather hard person.

    I think it is obvious, public opinion about these multiple births has changed and the market is getting smaller and smaller for exploiting children. Time for Kate and Jon to go to work and stop capitalizing on the flesh of their children. .

    It would be interesting to see what the ratings are next week. I think the ratings will go down.

    Regardless of the constant Kate hate on these websites, Kate does have a lot of fans that were watching the show. I'm sure even some of her haters tuned in to watch her dance poorly or get voted off.

    A lot of people are saying she's not a "star" but really besides Evan and Nicole none of these people are, and in reality Kate has spent more time in the spotlight and on the tabloids then any of these people have in the past year.

    Why waste your energy on hating people, just a thought...

    I thought it was great for Kate to be on DWTS. She was an inspiration to her children to keep on keeping on. She was an inspiration to single parents to not give in to depression and anxiety get out there and live life. As far as how she treated John. There is a thing called counseling with professional. Counseling with drinking buddies and young girls is not the correct way to vent about your partner.

    Good grief, some of the comments seem to indicate that she crashed the celebrity ring all by herself. The public made her a "celebrity". At least she stepped up when asked, worked hard and did her best amidst unbelievably stupid criticisms (jealous?). I'm not a dancer, either, so it would be very hard to put myself out there and try to do that. She should be admired for the effort, and the network is very grateful for the ratings. Where else could she make that much money for the benefit of that many kids. Where's their "father"???

At first I used to get upset about it but no longer as I have realized that people like to spew the hate anonymously….and that opportunity is exactly what the internet gives them. It kind of takes the bite out of these posts since so many people are doing this on a variety of topics whether it is political, sports related, or celebrity.

    Let ye who has not sinned cast the first stone. It amazes me how absolutley critical people can be. Here is a woman who put herself out there in a very uncomfortable situation in an attempt to provide for her kids. A nurse's salary with little or no incoming child support does not support 9 people. She has never claimed to be a perfect person, which apparently many of you think that you are. The statement, "Go home and raise your kids," should then be applied to ever althlete, movie star, or business person that may have to travel for their job and spend time away from home. Stop being so hypocritical and examine your own lives... you may find something that you could improve on!

    What's with all the "go be a mom" crap! I am a working mom, and I do everything, I don't rely on my husband for nothing (not that he offers to do anything). so who cares that for once, he is now home with the kids for a change (or did we forget his partying ways). I am not a big fan of hers, but good on her for going out there and getting some "me" time. I am a working mom, when my kids were young I worked part time till they went to school full time, then I was off working and by 6:00 I was home cooking supper, cleaning, doing homework with the kids. My kids are now graduating highschool with top honors. So who says she can't do it all, as long as she can handle the hours, and keep the paparazzi off her back, I say do it! and good luck to all working mothers who have to put up with everything just to put food on the table!

    "who says she boosted ratings?"

    I so agree with you...who says that the ratings were up because of her...it could have been for Pam Anderson, or even the fact that American Idol's crop of talent wasn't all that interesting, so people tuned in to see DWTS. I think it would be quite insulting to the other dancers if that were so, but, I guess we'll soon find out. I'm sure we'll hear how the ratings do next Monday.

    Oh God....that's all we need. As if she isn't full of herself right now.....God help us....this girl will be on tv for several years to come...she will never go away. What's going to happen to her once her kids are older? She has no talent whatsoever....but, in her mind, she thinks she does.....oh well......

    It is so apparent that internet communication has turned many people into judgemental, know-it-all, rude, cruel people. I guess being able to express your opinion without anyone knowing who you are gives you alot of "courage", huh? So I ask, why doesn't anyone question Hollywood moms AND DADS when they're on a set, away from their familys for six months at a time? How many of you have watched TV shows with children in them, other than Jon & Kate Plus 8? There are literally hundreds of shows with kids. Do I sense a double-standard or selective judgement? Loudly..........YES! Why don't you all get a life and leave people to live their lives and stop judging. Yeah, I bet none of you would take $75K an episode if someone wanted to film you and your kids, huh? Hypocrites. Kate is a woman that takes things head on, and despite personal fear, initimidation by others (such as yourselves), constant, unfair criticism....and the list goes on.....she doesn't allow any of this to dictate her actions nor prevent any of this to prevent what she's decided do for her family and herself. I admire her for trying to do something, that most in her shoes would shy away from. Everyone is too quick to judge. Look in the mirror.

Or, perhaps those making such idiotic statements would be ok with setting up a fund for Kate and her children, where you all support her and allow her the chance to be a stay at home mom?

All the money in the world will not keep these kids from becoming a burden to the system somewhere down the way, because mom and dad will spend the cash chasing whatever folly of the week comes their way. Kate would not have to be such a "victim" if she and Jon would reduce their lifestyle and live within their means. How many more years will it take to get these kids grown and on their own, then does some of them have disabilities?

She talks a lot about how hard it is for her, and how she has to work soo hard for the money.

There are many families struggling to get by in this economy, including mine, so please excuse me if I do not cry a river for her.

She had done the worse crime first so who is the victim? She should consider herself lucky that she didn't turn him into a crazy person and have him go postal.

That may or may not be true (given that she gets about 100x what I do in child support I opt for 'not') but if she just stopped saying it at every opportunity and (from my POV) using it as a damn excuse for everything she does she miiiiight get more sympathy. As it is, she gets none from me.

    As a dancer - she sucked. Point blank sucked. She disrespected her coach, too, which is pretty much the last thing you ever do when you're learning. That alone was enough to lose any sympathy I ever had for her. She's got the chance of a lifetime to learn from one of the best in a one-on-one situation and she dares to complain that he doesn't know how to teach? Oh HELL no, sister. She should have shut the hell up and listened. Might have gotten her somewhere.

    For all of us that cannot tolerate Kate and glad she is finally off the show, which appears to be about 85% of us, I couldn't help but notice that several people are hoping she is gone from our lives. No such luck. She already has another television show on TLC called Twist of Kate. The bad news is - we cannot get rid of her no matter how hard we try. The good news is - she's not our mother.

    Most of the other "celebrities" on the show have children. So why aren't they getting criticized and ripped apart like Kate Gosselin? I'm ashamed of my fellow working Moms for not standing up and coming to her defense. She is providing for her kids in the best way she can just like any other parent. What is the Dad doing to help?

    I am not going to try and argue that Kate is a good dancer because we all know she is not. But you all are so harsh I am not saying she is perfect either person or mother but who is? but from majority of the comments you all seem to believe that you are all perfect people/parents right? It is expensive to support eight children especially when you are doing it by yourself since her husband seems to bring nothing to the table.
    I don't think anyone has a right to judge on her parenting skills because unless you have eight kids you have no idea what it is like to be her. Look at all the people that struggle to support and care for two children let alone eight. Not to mention the fact that you don't know her. The media has a great way of portraying people how they want too and may not be a realistic view of the true person
    So instead of wasting your time judging others why don't you worry about yourselves because I am sure there is a lot you can do to improve the people you are

    We hate on Kate because she uses her children as a shield and as an excuse for not being able to do something as mundane as dance. The Duggards do not parade their children thru the media. And she is NOT a single mom – the kids have a father that IS involved in their life. So she needs to get off her pitty-pot and grow up. Since when is dancing on tv a job? How 'bout doing something productive to earn money – both parents. That's why we hate on Kate (and Jon)

If she hadn't had all the plastic surgery, hair extensions etc., maybe she could stay at home and be the mom she claims to love being so much. Sell the big fancy house and stop wearing designer clothing and maybe you can stay home. My priorities have always been providing for my children. Their physical needs have always been met, but most of all, they know they are loved more than anything. P.S. Worst dancer ever on DWTS.

    I am very disappointed in people. Come on...yes she is a mother of 8, but she is trying to be a working mom. Its hard especially when she has to work..its not an option. Would you rather her be on welfare taking tax payers money. And what makes people think she is a bad mom. Her children live in a multi million dollar house, have travelled the country more than most adults, and seem very happy and respectful. Now did she want 8 children no, but she is taking care of them. And if you never experienced the harsh reality of not being able to conceive children, than you don't know the decisions needed to be made in order to have a baby......So I wish people would stop judging bc one day your life may take a wild turn. And you will not want people casting you as a bad person.

    BTW. there are the Duggards who have way more children and yes they are all on TLC. So if you gonna hate on Kate than hate on all the families that expose their children to the media.

She has 8 kids, herself, and a house to take care of and she's doing what she has to do. Please believe, if I had to get on TV and make a ass of myself to make sure my kids are taken care of and are happy, I'd do it despite what anybody else on this planet has to say. Whatever happened to people loving each other and building each other up? Despite what happened with Jon and whether or not she's a TV junkie, she is also a human being that deserves respect. Being a mother is special and hard work and sometimes cause for drastic measures. I say, if she got on the show and did her best, congratulate her and stop all the negativity! Everybody who is dogging Kate out with all these harsh comments, tell me, how and when did you become so PERFECT!?!?! Bottom line, stop hating on her.

I give the woman credit for what she is now doing. Her ex is a deadbeat!! He wants her to succeed in whatever she does so that hey won't have to pay. I'm waiting for the time that he will ask for alimony!! Give the woman some space, and some credit. I truly believe she deserves and needs it. How many others just go on the "rolls" and let the government take care of them and their children!! Hats off to Kate, though I think she should keep a day job and stay away from from dancing. I hope she succeeds in whatever she does. The children will certainly see what a strong person she is and it will make better people of them.

Her constant need for attention and "fame" is sickening. I loved it when Carrie Ann made a comment about her not being a real star.

    If Kate puts as much energy into mothering as she does dancing, those kids are in big trouble. I just wanted to scream, "Move woman! My God you act like it is an effort to breath!" It is obvious that she does not take much personal time with those kids. She would be in better shape.

    I find it funny that no one ever complains about the other family reality shows like 19 And Counting. Isn't Kate in the same situation as those people? But I guess since the other family are such Christians it puts them in a different light.

    Kate you did a wonderful job, be proud of yourself. For the people out there don't you have anything better to say. Once you find a person to pick on that is all you do. She is a working mother, who cares what she does, as long as she is happy and the children are happy. Pick on John he is the one who said she is a abentsee mom. what is he doing to help help that's right no job. He needs to become a man and step up to the plate and stop causing trouble. For the press pick on someone else for a change and get a life. LEAVE KATE ALONE!!! She is doing a wonderful job, there are other things in the world to worry about think about that

    I'm thankful that she's gone because she really couldn't dance.

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with those that indicate that anyone would take the opportunity to go on television to support their children. I know I wouldn't there's no way I would expose myself or my family to that type of publicity no matter how much money was involved. My choice would be to work at any other type of job. It's kind of like politics...if you put your name in the public eye, you'd best not have any skeletons in your closet because the media will drag them out and in front of the American public. If Kate didn't want the criticism then she shouldn't have put herself in the line of fire by exploiting her children.

    As someone else stated, she's been so blessed by the perks her TV show afforded her, yet all she does is b!tch, moan and complain.

    She's let her so-called "Fame" go to her head. I hate to break it to you Kate, but, you're nothing more than a car wreck that we as human beings just can't help look at. You're a circus side-show act. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Thank God the "poooooor me" complainer is gone. Between the weekly Kate tears and the Octomom dilema, anyone would think these women never had a choice to parent fewer children. Is no one else getting fatigued by this, I am so desperate crap. My mom had 8 children, worked at Corning Glass as a "piece worker", helped run a farm and canned and froze veggies from the garden to keep us fed. In her spare time, she did her wash with a wringer washer and cooked healthy meals and made sure we all got to school and stayed healthy. I have no sympathy for these two helpless martyrs to motherhood. I applaude my mom who managed a family without the benefit of reality tv. These women should put some effort into mothering. Cook a real meal for a change and stop complaining.

    Having said that, I do not see any problem with her trying to provide a financial future for her kids. If she were a stay home mom and being supported by tax payer's money, people would not be happy about that either. I'm sad that people voted her out. I hope she finds the next gig and will help her make money for her kid's future.

    You all forget that she has two other shows in the works, so she's not gone for long. You say she should go home to be with her kids, but she has to work for high-paying TV shows to support them; what is her lame-ass ex-husband doing? Yeah, she's not that talented, for sure, but she's doing what she has to do as a mother. Maybe she should not have had so many children, but that would have riled the pro-lifers. If some TV producer is going to pay you big money to have a show about your multiple births most of you would take it, so to criticize her for doing it is hypocritical. People love drama; it's like driving by a car accident....everyone stops to look at it. The producers are only giving people what they want, as proof of the high ratings for her appearance on the show.

    I have never responded to any article or comment before, but I simply cannot stand some of the comments on this article. Kate Gosselin is not your average "single mother". She gets $21,000!!!! in child support alone!!! She chose fertility drugs that gave her litters, rather than children. She puppeteered her kids on a reality show to help pay for them. She's a harsh, overcritical, domineering person. Fine. But when she professes being a mother before all else, then she needs to make the choices that back up her statements. That MEANS, not flying across the country for days at a time to be on TV or do her book tours. Her book, being on the dancing with the stars show, reality TV... NONE of that is about providing for her children. ALL of that is about keeping herself in the limelight. Say what you will, more power to Jon for getting the heck out of dodge. He didn't handle the split well, but who can begrudge him choosing to have a better life and some peace and quiet? He didn't leave his kids. He left HER. And amen to that. If you want the viewpoint of a real single mother, find those that are struggling to make ends meet, have no real support, and take care of their kids EVERY DAY, all by themselves. And they don't get on TV to complain about it or strut their non-existent maternal values.

    You can all hate on Kate but I give her credit, In the beginning she was not the one who cheated on Jon he cheated on her. She is doing what she has to do to support those children financially, I don't see Jon going to work everyday. You haters are just jealous because she is making money and lives in a big house. Good for her. Do what you have to do Kate.

    Marie,

    It shows how little you truly know.

    Jon has tried many times to do the publicity tours and the tv appearances like Kate has, but somehow, TLC's contract bars *him* from doing them all, but allows Kate to do them....of course, the fact that ABC, producers of Dancing with the Stars, is the owner of TLC has *nothing* to do with it, I'm sure......I guess because Jon showed up on non-ABC things, they decided to have a problem with his contract.

    If Dancing had been on another network, you think ABC/TLC would have let her be on it?

    Just look at the places Kate turns up....GMA (ABC), The View (ABC), Dancing with the Stars (ABC).

    It really bothers me that CNN will include in this news blurb about Kate G's appearances on DWTS as being a ratings boost to their show. How can that be? There are tons of us, including me, who have traditionally watched DWTS each season for years and we all chose NOT to watch it this year. I want to see the real numbers. There had to have been a big dip in the actual ratings count. Memo to ABC, I have tuned out and DID NOT watch any of this season's DWTS because you chose to put Kate G on the show. Now that she's been voted off, or kicked off, or however you want to spin it, I might decide to tune in this next week and watch the remainder of the contestants go for it. ABC, in the future you need to make better decisions about the selections of "celebrities" you put on the DWTS lineup. You have to make sure they are actual celebs and not AVERAGE SINGLE MOMS who's 15 minutes was up more than a year ago.

    Why are you people so hateful?! If Kate was really in it for the fame, I doubt she would have subjected herself to the cruel and hateful comments that everyone has made about her since she began on the show. I think that she really did go on the show to make money for her kids. We all know that Kate is OCD; therefore, the daunting fact of raising 8 kids scares the crap out of her. Yes she did put herself in the position to have 8 kids doing the IVF, but when you can not have kids naturally, and you so badly want to have a child of your own, then that is one of the risks. I think that Kate feels that she has to make tons of money in order to feed them, and give them a good life that they deserve. She is first and foremost, a single mom! In order to feed 8 kids, she is required to work. Yes she has made quite a bit of money from her TV appearances, but its amazing how fast children can eat through money, not to mention 8 of them. I think that everyone should stop judging this woman, and let her live her life. Even if she had a nursing job, she would not be able to see her kids on a regular basis, and would be seen as an "absent parent," because nurses work 12 hour shifts 6 days a week.

    Can any of you recite the date and time you became so perfect? What does it gain any of you to be so harshly critical and pass judgment on someone else this way? Before you pass judgment on another, try walking in their shoes for a while. And be careful, what goes around comes around and bites harder. You all must be pretty miserable to say the mean nasty things you say. How many of you would have the guts to do what she did and even look half as good? Get some mental health therapy!!!

    So happy Kate is gone. All she thinks about is herself. Watched Jon & Kate when their show was just starting & she put down her husband on TV, in the supermarket & anywhere she could. What man can take that? She needs to be a MOTHER to her kids. If she didn't have to have a big house, servants & a bodyguard she wouldn't have to make so much . It's not about the kids, it's about Kate being famous. She was awful on DWTS!

I've never seen such selfishness as demonstrated by these two adulterous morons. Don't they know what permanent damage they are causing their children by playing all of this out in the media? It is wrong for Kate to put the kids through all the stress of doing a TV show again. I guess she and TLC have no shame. Maybe Child Protective Services needs to intervene on their behalf. Both parents are driven by two things: greed and their hormones. Their representation of a family is about as dysfunctional as you can get and thankfully is not representative of most families in thus world!

    Ya know – as I read through these comments I am awe struck that some of you express out right hatred at a complete and total stranger. Like her – don't like her – I don't care. But I do find it facinating that people express such anger/hate towards complete strangers. If she wasn't "sellable" she wouldn't get the attention she gets by the TV and magazine industry.

    If you really hate her so badly – then stop opening these links and reading about her and her family. Stop showing interest in even hating her and her family and eventually she will fade away.

    I for one have no issue with her on any level. She didn't ask for the fame that came with her decision to have the children she had – just accepted it. Once she did – and got a taste of Hollywood and fame – she loved it and saw the financial benefit of it – and has decided to pursue it over a career in nursing.

    Let's me see....how many people in this world would choose a hard laboring career, let say like NURSING – that pays well – but you put in the work and the TIME to do it – over let's say – a WAY less time consuming career in TV that you make SUBSTANTIALLY MORE MONEY doing....for a fraction of the time and phyical effort (usually). Gosh – I don't know .... just leave her alone and stop reading stories about her and she'll fade away for those of you that hate her so badly.

    Shame on any of you that make derogatory comments about her children .... that's just pathetic.

If it's true that she is in fact receiving $20,000.00 in child support – she digusts me that she can even try to portray herself as a single mom and making a quick buck off her kids back.

    Those who are defending Kate, we do not have to be championship dancers ourselves to know a bad dancer when we see one. This show is not a place for novices to "try their best," it is a place for people who are already the best to compete with each other. Look at American Idol – they reject the people who can't sing. They don't keep bringing them back week after week because "they're trying their best." No, I personally would not take an opportunity like this because I know my limitations and refuse to embarrass myself on national television. Kate makes a fool out of herself week after week and then cries about how mean everyone is to her.

Likely she'll find another tv reality show...maybe the trailer trash jerry springer show will do a special on her. What's sad is that she remained on this show long as she did, just proves what everyones already made clear, that this is a popularity contest not a genuine talent judging show when it comes to the population voting.

    As a single working mom there isn't a day that I don't wish to be home with my babies. Kate has enough money to live modestly and be a stay at home mom, but instead she chooses to work to mantain her lavish lifestyle. That is why so many single moms do not appreciate her right now. People out there loved her in her role of mom because THAT is and should be her PRIMARY job. She is NOT a celebrity and people resent that she here and there and everywhere, when she has eight children who are still suffering the pain of their parent's divorce. She needs to be THERE with them. Not out and about.

    That is the TRUE problem with our society today. We feed everybody through our fame machine and then spit them out like we never wanted them. My girlfriend and I had watched their show for many years, before it became huge. Kate never "bullied" Jon. The simply acted like EVERY MARRIED COUPLE DOES. Little arguments here and there. But you all think she is a monster because of all of our faults?
    And then she is fed through the machine. The show becomes super popular, so the fans demand more. Tabloid fodder begins. We love the whole family so much...we demand them...and when we are supplied with them on our TV, we don't want them anymore.

    So she can't dance. BFD. At least she tried. She gave it her best shot, which is all anyone can do. Why bash her because she can't dance? Did you bash Buzz, Shannon, and all the other people who have been on DWTS and weren't good?

    I don't particularly care for Kate as a person, but that's not the reason I thought she should be eliminated from DWTS. She was withtout a doubt the absolute worst excuse for a dancer they have ever had on the show. I felt sorry for her partner, Tony. She disrespected him, argued with him constantly, questioned his teaching ability (he IS a respected professional dancer, you know!), didn't want to work at all, whined & made excuses constantly, & was just a total prima-donna. As a result of Kate's lack of work ethic, poor Tony looked like he was dragging a three day old corpse around the dance floor most of the time. Did people notice that none of the other contestants gathered round Kate for hugs at the end of the show like they normally do? She was just a joke out there. Now the show can actually get back to being a dance contest instead of being a Kate debacle.

    Never watched the show before she was on, never watched it when she was on, still won't watch it.

    But at least now when I go to a news website for news I can stop seeing her name on the front page.

    I have nothing against Kate. I just believe she sees herself as someone other than who she really is. She was very out of her element on DWTS. She makes motherhood the reason for everything good or bad in her life. Kate choose to be on DWTS during the publicity of the divorce and during a time when any mother is exhausted. She can only blame herself when she started gripping about the kids and the drama. I'm glad she is gone because she was such a drag on the show. She didn't dance or act graceful. She has been very blessed but can only state the negatives.

    as far as her ex goes all he is good for is laying in bed with different

    Kate you were GREAT! so you are not a dancer, but you showed America (and your wimpy X) what you are made off. As for the rest of you, you are like the tea party the smallest loudest, but make-no-difference group. She kept on winning because the silent but the mayority kept voting and watching becasuse of here, and now that she is gone, and so are we.

    Well, to all the peeps who blogged before me...the cable company in this area were "repairing" all cable television in Michigan and Indiana on Tuesday night, without warning, and I didn't get to see Kate get hers, so I read all your blogs and got the big picture....Maybe Tony Dovolini will be luckier in the next season. You go, Tony!!!

    Kate is gone and DWTS will be the better for it. She can't dance. She wants all of the attention. She treated poor Tony miserablly. Tony certainly earned his paycheck.

    I still believe that DWTS ahould do away with audience participation in the decision making. If it was left up to the judges, Kate would have been gone weeks ago.

    I watch DWTS for the dancing and the beautiful women. If I wanted to watch a soap opera I would do that during the daytime.

    My GOD, are people really defending this sorry excuse for a human being? What on earth would make any of you defend this horrible person? All of your comments defending her are a sad sad reflection on our society. She is a freakin reality "star" and not a good one. There are MILLIONS of people in this world to feel sorry for but this fame hungry wench is not one of them. She is sick, addicted to fame and needs to stop being given publicity.

    You can all hate on Kate but I give her credit, In the beginning she was not the one who cheated on Jon he cheated on her. She is doing what she has to do to support those children financially, I don't see Jon going to work everyday. You haters are just jealous because she is making money and lives in a big house. Good for her. Do what you have to do Kate.

    No, if you happen to stick in the minds of the vast nation of morons we have available here in the United States, they will find something about you that they will rave about to anyone who will listen, and support you, without thinking (since they can't) unwaveringly, and discount every bad choice you make, saying "don't hate her!" until there's actually a plurality of people who think, for no actual reason, that this nobody is a somebody, and somebody with something to say, even though, in the final analysis, they're still a nobody.

    Andreas- I agree. Why do new organizations keep reporting on her like she is some big star? What the heck is going on in this world when we have someone like Kate Gosselin endlessly talked about on every entertainment show as well as NEWS programs. ENOUGH! She is NOT newsworthy. Despite what you think, 99% of us do not want to hear anything about her so STOP reporting on her. Stop it. Just stop it.

    I am absolutely appalled by everyone whose commented up to this point saying "Kate, go home and take care of your kids." Each and every one of you know good and well if you were given this opportunity amidst the nonsense she's gone through, you'd take the opportunity just the same. So what if she's not the best dancer out there? She's out there giving it a shot which is more than I can say for most of us. We sit behind a computer spouting off about things that are truly inconsequential in our lives because it some how makes us feel better. Ridiculous. If we put half as much effort into paying attention to stories like this and posting our opinions we'd probably have found a cure for every terminal disease out there or a way to bring all our troops home or how to feed every hungry mouth or how to rejuvenate the economy. Kate, thanks for trying on this train wreck of a show. At least you kept it interesting for six weeks. Ultimately, ABC will be the one to suffer. Ratings are sure to slump and hopefully the show is cancelled and forgotten about because of it. Should have kept Kate on ABC. Bad ratings move.

    I'm so glad that Kate has finally gotten the boot. If she didn't get eliminated, I wasn't going to watch the show anymore. She was the worst contestant ever and is a media junkie for real. Pam Anderson should not have been in the bottom 2. She looks like trashy tramp in everything she wears, but she is actually quite good. Go Nicole and Derek.

    I'm glad she is gone because of her dancing, but not sure about the other comments. Millions of people travel on a week to week basis for their jobs (regional managers, etc). Many of these people who travel on a weekly basis are single and are trying to make money to support their families. Then many people complain she is not a star. I won't say she is nor she is not, but she didn't make this happen. Again, millions and millions of people watch her on TV and Television shows keep asking her for apperances. I'm not sure the definition of a STAR, but if TV shows keep asking her, then I think that would qualify her. Plus, she is also a published writter, etc. - Again, I don't 100% agree with everything that Kate has done, but she is very much simliar to those other single parents who travel for work to support their children.
