Dancing with the Stars Contestants Kate Gosselin and Erin Andrews Having a Tough Week Offscreen

As Kate Gosselin hit the dance floor there was a major drama going on behind the scenes. Her ex-husband Jon is reportedly going to court claiming that Kate's performing on Dancing with the Stars is making an "absentee mom" and he wants "primary custody."

On Easter Sunday Jon was seen taking care of their kids at the Gosselin home in Pennsylvania.

Kate was also with the kids on Saturday. Then she flew to Los Angeles to appear on Dancing with the Stars.

Jon's attorney says he will use Dancing with the Stars as evidence that Kate does not spend "quality time with the eight kids."

Meanwhile, Kate's send-up of being followed by the paparazzi didn't get rave reviews. She was stiff, and, again, failed to impress the judges.


"That was odd," said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.


Judge Bruno Tonioli added, "You look like the super bitch from hell."

The cover of the latest issue of Us Weekly reads: "Inside Kate's Train Wreck."


The magazine fuels those stories that Kate is a major diva, claiming the cast doesn't invite her to after-show parties and that Kate stops rehearsals to go shopping. But Kate says she's focused on the dancing.

"It was the first week I was totally in character with the dance. I could totally relate, I felt it, I loved it, and I wanted to nail it this week," Kate told INSIDE EDITION.

Kate's lawyer calls Jon's accusation she's an absentee mom "reckless and offensive."

And Erin Andrews bravely took to the dance floor despite threats on her life. She kissed her partner at the start of her blindfolded waltz.

"I don't quit on things," Andrews says.

Security was tight during the show, and during rehearsals Andrews's partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy wore a black t-shirt that said "Security."

"I wouldn't have even been able to think about doing the dance tonight if I wasn't partnered with Maks just because I would have been like, 'I gotta go home,' " she tells INSIDE EDITION.
