Kate Gosselin shamed on DWTS as partner quits, comes back

Kate Gosselin is looking like a favorite for first voted off on career graveyard reality show Dancing With the Stars this week.

The New York Daily News describes Kate’s “stiff and robotic movements” and “the frightened, frozen look on her face” as she apparently forgot most of her routine. Eventually, Kate’s dance partner Tony Dovolani tossed his mike and walked off due to Kate’s harping. He eventually returned, and Kate hugged him and thanked him, bitterly adding, “a lot of people quit on me in life.”

Apparently, the judges were about as impressed as Dovolani with Gosselin’s dancing skills:

Bruno called the performance a “nightmare” and suggested Gosselin take acting lessons in order to portray a character. Carrie Ann applauded her for making it all the way through the routine without giving up. Len said her nerves are breaking her and told her to “go out fighting.”

The first pair to get the ax will be revealed tonight at 8pm on ABC.
