“Thank goodness my kids were in bed that night — I didn’t want them to watch just in case I was eliminated, but I had no idea I was inadvertently saving them from nightmares. All joking aside, I WAS scared to death!” Gosselin, 35, blogged.
What else does Gosselin have to say about her dancing debut?
“I’ve been told by more than one person (including a dwts producer) that on the night of the first dwts elimination, the expression on my face looked like something out of a horror movie. I didn’t realize this, obviously, until I saw it for myself… and even I was a bit frightened.”
Oh, c’mon, she’s not that bad. And even if she is, we’re routing for her anyway. Although at some point she might be begging us to vote her off, because she admits to having mixed emotions about staying.
“I shrieked with delight when I finally heard ‘Kate and Tony’ and then immediately had to face the fact that a new friend was not going to be there when I returned to L.A. the following week… such mixed emotions! So sad! And happy! And sad! Oh my!”
But, ultimately, she indicates she hang in there for her kids.
“Here’s the thing: I want to continue on so that I can learn, have the experience, give my kids the thrill of Monday night entertainment (with popcorn, I might add!) and give them something else to be proud of me for! I cannot tell you how very excited they are for me — they comment on my sparkly dress, their favorite part of the routine, and how ‘boot-I-ful’ (that’s beautiful in Joel language for all of those who are wondering) I look. This show MUST go on.”
