Poor Kate was slammed again on Dancing With The Stars! Do you think the reality mom should keep dancing … or is it time for her to go home?

Reality mom Kate Gosselin had a tough go of it on last night’s Dancing With The Stars! First, her partner Tony Dovolani said during rehearsals, “Kate has no motivation and I have to push her each week … and it gets exhausting.”

And when an obviously tired Kate hit the dance floor for her Foxtrot, the judges where even HARSHER! Bruno Tonioli even told Kate, “Tony could have had more life with a frock and coat hanger!” Ouch! But didn’t it seem like Kate was actually improving this week?

We thought Kate actually did ok, but the judges did not agree! Carrie Ann said: “There’s some sort of grace that’s developing … and I give you a lot of credit for that. But when I watch you dance it’s like the Charlie Brown teachers talking — ‘wah wah, wah wah.'”

Len Goodman thought, “It was neat and precise but it wasn’t a dance, it was a stroll … you didn’t really dance, you sort of strolled.” And Bruno declared, “Darling, Tony could have had more life with a frock and coat hanger! It’s really not good enough. You’ve got to capatilize on what we say … otherwise what’s the point?”

When Kate and Tony went back stage to receive their scores, fellow contestant Niecy Nash stood up and clapped for her in a show of support. Still, the judges gave her a score of only 15/30. Kate says she has to keep dancing for her eight kids, who “count down the days for Monday” so they can see their mom on the show.

And despite his frustration with his partner during rehearsal, Tony insists, “I was very proud of her.”

Does Kate deserve to keep getting voted back on? Or is it time for her to pack up and go? —Corynne Steindler
