Kate Gosselin says she’s just dancing for her kids. Love her or hate her — how can you fault any mom for that?

Kate Gosselin has gotten tons of flack for bailing on her brood of eight to compete on Dancing with the Stars. But in her latest blog post, the reality mom shatters her ‘diva’ image and begs fans to keep her on the show for one reason: she just wants to make her kids happy.

“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!” the 35-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 star wrote April 2, adding, “The show MUST go on.”

I wasn’t completely sold by Kate’s plea, but then she threw out this seemingly-humble, self-deprecating curve ball — and my heart (unfortunately) melted.

“Let’s be honest here…”, she admitted. “It’s your votes keeping me dancing and not so much my dancing skills at this stage!”

I knew it, she knew it and we’re happy Kate finally admitted her dancing skills are about as refined as her 5-year-olds’. You earned my vote, Ms. Gosselin. Well played.
