Kate Gosselin Says Dancing is 'More Frustrating Than Giving Birth to Sextuplets'
Kate Gosselin's "Dancing With the Stars" debut on Monday was less than stellar. In fact, judge Bruno Tonioli said it looked like her partner Tony Dovolani was "pushing a shopping cart around the floor," US Weekly reports.
Gosselin says "My body and my brain were at war," during the performance.
As the mother of eight young children, critics have slammed Gosselin for taking so much time away from her family to appear on a dance show, even accusing her of being obsessed with fame. Gosselin maintains that she's only doing the show to support her kids.
"But I hope that people see in me that I'm a mom like everyone else, just working to provide for my kids -- I mean if you have to work, isn't this so fun?" she says.
Dancing hasn't come easy to Gosselin, who has built a rehearsal space in the basement of her Pennsylvania home. In fact, she says learning how to dance is more frustrating than "giving birth to sextuplets," Us Weekly reports.
Somehow, that comparison seems like a stretch. Still, we'll take her word for it.
