There is always tons of buzz going around when Dancing With the Stars announces their next line-up of contestants and this year that particular buzz is all for Kate Gosselin. The newly single mom will be joining the likes of Shannen Doherty, Pamela Anderson and former Bachelor Jake Pavelka. The new season of DWTS is also bringing a brand new co-host. Season 7 winner, Brooke Burk, will be replacing Samantha Harris as co-host alongside Tom Bergeron.
After announcing her new gig, Kate professed to Entertainment Tonight that Dancing is one of her biggest fears. “I am all about new challenges, facing my fears – this is like the hugest fear ever because I have never ever danced in my life.” After all her latest drama and controversies, I think Kate might just be a fan favorite for the 10th season of DWTS.
Apparently ex-hubby Jon Gosselin is happy for Kate and took to his Twitter page to wish her well. “Congratulations to Kate for joining the new season of DWTS. I am thrilled for her,” he wrote. “She has my support and vote.” It’s definitely nice to see some diplomacy between the scorned couple after such a public and dramatic break-up.
This season of DWTS is sure to see some highs and lows with a very interesting cast and some expected wardrobe malfunctions from Pamela Anderson who said she might have to glue her costumes on to make sure nothing pops out unexpectedly. Looks like Kate might have some competition after all.
