Kate Gosselin just can not catch a break from the DWTS cast. During her run on the show we all heard the rumors that she wasn’t getting along with her cast mates and when she was asked back for the finale, the response from fellow tango-ers was less than enthusiastic. They were “dreading” it!
But as they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Maybe everyone got along better backstage during last night’s season finale since they hadn’t seen each other for awhile and it was the last time they’d all be together?
“We had all just about forgotten what a nightmare Kate was,” an insider tells Popeater.com. “She is the only celebrity in the entire 10 seasons who has demanded a security guard be with her at all times, and nothing anyone does is good enough. Last night, she actually wanted the temperature of the ballroom changed before she hit the floor. Kate hates to sweat and this was just another opportunity for her to be difficult.”
I know if I was a a heavy sweater and about to go on national TV, I’d want the room icy cold, but I doubt I would ask knowing that there were other dancers and an entire audience who would have to suffer the chill. Besides, how much could she possibly perspire from stomping around for a minute? This was not Swan Lake or even Sweatin to the Oldies.
But the real raise in temperature didn’t come from a dial. The hair, makeup, and costume staff actually flipped a coin to see who was going to have to deal with her.
As for her partner Tony, he went so far as to say that Barbra Streisand, who is known for being difficult, would be easier to work with than Kate.
All the evidence points to Kate being a real diva, but it’s hard to imagine for a women with so many kids. Can you imagine her at home if that’s how she acts in public? The rest of the cast have mostly had careers that have put them in positions dealing with press, hair and make-up, and others on set, whereas Kate has had less experience. Maybe she just doesn’t know the appropriate etiquette? Or, are bad manners just bad manners?
